Breaking Bad

   Hello again folks. Let's review Breaking Bad, since its 4th season is underway at the moment.

   Well what can I say. First I started watching with a bit of scepticism, I mean the father of Malcolm (in the Middle) Bryan Cranston in a serious drama? I have, and I'm sure all people, were seeing him as a comic actor, he was playing a not-so-smart-guy, even kinda dumb. So it was a great shock when I saw him in Breaking Bad first episode, only in underwear, driving an RV with a gas mask on, moments after that pulling a gun out. I was WTF man, who is this guy, sure isn't the same guy from Malcolm in the Middle!
   In Breaking Bad you can see a great progression of character. In the beginning we see Walter (Walter White, the character of Bryan Cranston) as a dull school teacher, in his mid-ages, best of his years gone. He looks kind of depressed to me, though I'm not a psychiatrist, busting his ass in a car wash as well in the university. So the breaking-bad-point comes with his diagnosis of lung cancer. What are you going to do if you were in his place? If you were a school teacher, and you found out about your lung cancer?... So Walter goes through some metamorphosis, goes insane if you want. From there on we see the character progressing from what he was, to a drug producer. With his progress he gains more money, and mo' money = mo' problems. He goes away from his old self, from his wife and family, and goes into the underground, cooking meth with his partner Jessy Pinkman. I mean, even if you don't want to, you can not live both the lives of a boring chemistry teacher and deal with the pressure and problems of meth cooking. You have bigger problems to solve, when you are neck deep in sh*t I don't think you will be able to do a lot of thinking about other things.
    So, a chemistry teacher gone Insane (in the membrane). Еnd justifies the means. I really think that this is the motto of our meth cook, for the whole time the idea was - get some money for wife and kids to lead a good life after I'm 6 feet under. But what he didn't realise is that in this kind of business you don't go just "out", you can't just quit. So at some point he goes through the point of no return and in seasons 3-4 we see him working against his will with danger for his and even bigger for his partner's life.

   Fourth season so far is awesome, I don't think the quality has go down (a lot, anyway), I will stop now, so you can have something to find out on your own. I think I will stop giving "rating" to my review shows, since I will wind up with 20+ shows with 9+ rating, which kind of defeats the point of rating in my opinion. So, Breaking Bad - another must! Peace, I'm out.

  21. Excellent review! I sometimes find it a little difficult to be serious when you have characters from other films that play a completely different type. But it just goes to show that good actors can act any part and do it well!
