Breaking Bad

Quote:
BREAKING BAD is a seriocomic study of a middle-aged man, a high school chemist teacher, on the brink of losing it over a financially poor marriage and the fact that he's leading a double life that his wife knows nothing about. As the harried man, BRYAN CRANSTON delivers a solid performance, full of realistic touches--laced with bitter humor and honesty--his superb work holding the whole episode together.

Seems the need for cash sets up the idea for him to consider partnership with an ex-student who deals in drug sales. After viewing a newscast showing stacks of easy money from a drug bust, Cranston gets the idea to ask his brother-in-law, a DEA agent, if he can accompany him on one of the busts. While there, he spots an ex-student escaping from the scene and hooks up with him later to propose a partnership wherein he'll make the drugs and the student will sell them.

Meanwhile, a visit to the doctor because of a dry cough reveals that he has lung cancer, something he doesn't want to tell his wife because she's expecting a baby. Desperate for "easy money", he gets heavily involved with the ex-student (another brilliant performance by AARON PAUL), and together they find themselves caught up in drastic circumstances with two bodies to get rid of as soon as their drug activities go awry. The sequence where Cranston lets the phosphine gas (while mixing ingredients) do the job of ridding himself of the two men in the van, is a model of suspense.

There's a payoff in virtually every scene, full of unexpected twists that seem credible and always true to the characters. The suspense is almost non-stop, the action scenes are briskly handled, the humor is diabolic, and the dialog is always sharp as a knife. In an amusing breakfast scene, with the wife buying things on the cheap and making substitutions, the son remarks: "This bacon tastes like band-aids." It's as dark as a black comedy can get, but played so earnestly by BRYAN CRANSTON and the cast that the viewer is immediately hooked into the story which begins with a bang.
Fuck yah... I can already tell season 3 is gonna be awesome.

If you're a fan of the show, you gotta watch Brian Cranston's(walter) interview on the daily show.

the show is really dark but at times it can instill a lot of emotions which is quite a feat
is it just me or are the uncensored SD torrents out there are huge? 500-700MB for a 50 min SD video?

Nuts wasn't it?!? You just never know what to expect from this show... kinda like the early seasons of '24' before it started sucking.

^ i felt the eerie feeling that i normally get from watching lost
as you can imagine the parallels of such similar incident

i really love how they were building that suspense and foreshadowing at the intro of every few episodes of season 2 eluding to the incident

I love where this season is going! Makes me hate watching the new episodes. I wish I had the will power to wait until the season is over, so I could watch it all on dvd, one after the other. I hate waiting a week!!!

+1
the first 5 episode in this season has been pretty boring...last night's episode definately turned it around.

poor hank rushing to the hospital. Do you think he knows someone close to him is helping Jesse out? (since Walt used Marie to lure him away).
