I paid for season 5 with the expectation that when it returned, I would get the remaining episodes. I check this morning and find out that I haven't received the latest episode. So I decide to check the Play Store, and see that Google has created an "imaginary" season 6, and in order for me to watch the latest episode, I'd have to pay $22 for the remaining half of the season. As usual, there is no number to contact for support, and this is all I can do. I refuse to purchase anything else from the play store until this issue is resolved!

Was OK imo. I honestly don't think this show deserved the level/quality of attention it got and has though I'm sure I'm missing something. Tried watching a couple times over (1. Lost interest halfway through s3. 2. Lost interest during s4 finale.) and will probably try again sometime in the future. Very good for consuming time and much much better than all the duds out there! Also (imo) this was a pretty nice break from most every show on TV and their somewhat genre based standardized formula of a story line (*cough* new girl, big bang theory, csi/other crime dramas etc. for days).

Breaking Bad is an awesome show. However, Google's version of it is highly edited and has muted out swear words. The scene in s1ep1 when Walter swears, its muted. Netflix does not mute this scene. Since I played the episode, I'm being denied a refund despite this product being clearly defective and NOT advertised as 'edited' Don't purchase this if you want the original version of BB. Unfortunately Google's refund system is highly automated so good luck getting money back. Warning to all.
