By far the best show ever made. The transformation of Walter White is simply amazing. His cancer diagnosis unleashes the man he always wanted to be but was too afraid to become. The supporting characters are all amazing. Hank, Jesse, Gus and Mike all deserve shows of their own. I could watch this series a couple times a year and always find something new to appreciate. I highly recommend Better Call Saul after viewing Breaking Bad.

When I heard about the show I said it wasn't my cuppa tea. I was tricked into watching the first several episodes and from there, I'd be lying if I didn't admit I was from that point hooked. Waiting for each week to pass so I could watch the next episode was too much. I kept stating that once a week was not enough. Breaking Bad was the best.. absolutely brilliant. Everything must come to an end and it's a shame this show had to! Everyone's part was played so well. The producers, writers, cast, etc.

One of the best shows ever created in my opinion! The story line is phenomenal and so consistently enjoyably intense and along with that the casting for characters and character development is outstanding. Bryan Cranston delivers a top notch performance and it is arguable, between he and Aaron Paul, which is the most compelling between the two. I do not have one critique for this show and will watch it through many more times as it seems to get better each time.
