Breaking Bad was a fascinating and enthralling series from beginning to end. If you have not watched it, then do so, from the beginning. If you have watched it, then watch it again. All of the foreshadowing throughout the series makes more sense the second time around.
No one wanted the series to end, and many were rooting for Walt to the very end, wanting him to somehow, not reap all that he had sown. Is that because viewers were pulled into the character to the point that every action he took was understood and found to be necessary? Probably. All the theories as to how the show would end did not come to fruition, but that is typical of the show, it never happens like you think it will, keeping the viewer completely enthralled from beginning to end. If you like thrills, suspense, excellent writing and superb acting, then this is the show for you.
Walter White‘s alter ego, ‘Heisenberg’, seemed to overtake him, or, was he really Heisenberg deep down all along? The characters in this show were wonderfully fleshed out, and none were one-dimensional. The writers did an excellent job by allowing the characters to lead them through the journey, and these writers never failed to disappoint the viewer, not even in the last seconds. One of the beautiful ironies of the last episode is that once again, Jesse, is saved by Walter White. And it looks like Jesse finally caught a break. Suffice it to say that this is the character that head writer Vince Gilligan started to ‘kill off’ in the first season, but the character refused to die and lived to the very end. Personally, it was good to see Heisenberg re-emerge one last time. Gonna miss these characters.
It is now streaming on Netflix from the very first season. And box sets are available, which would make good Christmas presents.
