One of the best shows I have ever seen! I'm obsessed with Breaking Bad!

Be-forewarned: A 'Highly Addictive' Series. Dark story lines with humour thrown in. Main characters are extremely likable. Good casting.

Good season 1, if you can call 7 episodes a season.
My only complaint is that the show is one of those that try to blend comedy with serious drama. Mostly it's serious, but every so often there's some comic scene inserted. Would be better if it was only serious.

Enjoyed season one, but found it to be a slower pace than expected.

Brilliant story twists, nail biting suspense and some dark humor. We are totally hooked and binging on the series. Do yourself a favor and place a hold or check out the next series in line at the same time. We are now on the 4th series and can't wait to pick it up.

Breaking Bad is a movie about a high school chemistry teacher that decides to start cooking meth with his old drug dealing student to provide for his family. The plot of the first season of Breaking Bad is amazing. You follow Walter White change from being an innocent high school chemistry teacher to a criminal all for his family. Watching Bryan Cranston become this drug cook is very different after watching him in Malcom in the Middle, but he pulls it off wonderfully. Along side with Jesse Pinkman, the right hand man to Walter. The show adds a very good problem Walter has to constantly face, his brother in law. His brother is a drug enforcement officer that is trying to find the new meth cook in town, little does he know it is his brother in law Their personalities are constantly clashing which makes for very humorous events but also very dark events. The actors in Breaking Bad make you get emotionally connected to each and single one of them. You watch them grow as the season goes on. Constant plot twists and traumatic events kept me on the edge of my seat wanting more. The first season does a great job of getting watchers to get hooked on the show and keep watching future seasons. This season only has seven episodes but these episodes were very well done. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in suspenseful, humorous and dark events. I give Breaking Bad season 1 a 10/10.

A terrific start to an excellent series. The story begins innocently and then by the end of season one you start to see Walter White transforming, but one cannot imagine how much he transforms as the series goes on. Season One hooks you in, so be sure to have seasons 2-6 on hand because you will want to binge watch this awesome series!!

Jesse: And that'll cut through a lock? Because this is supposed to be one big-xxx lock.
Walter: In World War II, the Germans had an artillery piece – it's the biggest in the world – called the Gustav Gun, and it weighed a thousand tons. And the Gustav was capable of firing a seven-ton shell and hitting a target, accurately, twenty-three miles away. [chuckles] I mean, you could drop bombs on it every day for a month without every disabling it. But, drop a commando – one man, with just a bag of this – and he could melt right through four inches of steel and destroy that gun forever.

Walter: Of course I do. Skyler, you've read the statistics. These doctors...talking about surviving. One year, two years, like it's the only thing that matters. But what good is it, to just survive if I am too sick to work, to enjoy a meal, to make love? For what time I have left, I want to live in my own house. I want to sleep in my own bed. I don't wanna choke down 30 or 40 pills every single day, lose my hair, and lie around too tired to get up...and so nauseated that I can't even move my head. And you cleaning up after me? Me, with...some dead man, some artificially alive...just marking time? No. No. And that's how you would remember me. That's the worst part. So...that is my thought process, Skyler. I'm sorry. I just...I choose not to do it.
