After an unremarkable chemistry teacher learns he has terminal cancer, he turns to an exciting life of crime to provide for his loved ones. Includes all 7 episodes. Features bonus previews; commentaries; deleted and extended scenes.
I have quite a few friends that really enjoyed breaking bad, so I decided to watch the series now that it has officially ended. I think that the first disc is a good intro to the show. It was a bit slow, but some friends also told me that it picks up throughout the rest of the season and the second season is much better.
It took a few episodes to get into, but this is a decent show. Good characters and a crazy plot. Brian Cranston is dead on as meth making chemistry teacher Walter White. The scenes with him and Jesse Pinkman are priceless. I just finished the crazy cliffhanger ending of season 3. DANG. Can't wait to see what happens next.

I've heard such good things about Breaking Bad that I want to believe in it. A friend of mine once said "it's so good that it hurts." The writing definitely does a good job of creating this believable world rapidly. You put the disc in and are immediately sucked into their lives. The subject matter is dark, but not so dark it can't be watched. It's a fairly realistic depiction of players in the drug trade. It should be exciting to watch it when you consider the quality of the writing, acting, and locations used, but there is something missing. People swear that it only gets better so I'll keep watching it, but at this point it's missing a little oomph. It needs more gusto. Maybe Disc 3 will do the trick.
