it's meant to be good isn't it? I've totally got it set to series record anyway.
I've heard season two will be following it, not sure if on FX or Fiver though.
Because I'm worried that I'll keep expecting him to start doing rollerdisco or something.
he's very different and excellent in it. His meth partner is great as well although I've forgotten his name.
One of my friends kept going on about how good it was and the whole setup sounds so weird.
"Set and produced in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Breaking Bad revolves around Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a struggling high school chemistry teacher with many family issues. When White is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, he breaks down and turns to a life of crime, and starts producing and selling methamphetamine with his former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) in a desire to secure his family's financial future.
Breaking Bad has received widespread critical acclaim, particularly for its writing and Cranston's lead performance, and has won four Emmy Awards in addition to numerous other awards and nominations."
i.e. MEH x MEH x MEH x MEH x MEH x MEH x MEH x MEH x MEH x MEH = [TheWza's reaction]
the wikipedia entry is so prosaic that it sounds dull.
but hardly anyone will watch this. Cranston is amazing. Aaron Pauls character should be a cliche but hes just as good and their scenes together are all great. It also doesnt feel like one of those shows were theyre stretching the premise out for longer than they should. Its worth watching just for the character development of Walter White from the person in the pilot to the person he becomes in season 2.
brilliant show. quite slow moving at the start and really comes into its own in the second series.
*note: i agree with the above flashforward comment. i don't think i can bear watching the show any more. yesterday's ending was the same as the one 2 episodes ago!!!!
when it was on in America. Will be catching up once it starts on Fiver...Fiver? Should be on Five, think of all those who miss out.
