Clever and crafted with care, BREAKING BAD is one of the greatest television series ever. (I know, that's a big title to take.) This season, I believe, is what solidifies that status. Initially, this season was going to be the finale season, but the powers that be called for one last hurrah. However, I can understand how this would be the end and almost wish it had been. They could not have gone out in a more perfect way, if that had been. I easily rank this as one of the best seasons of all time, paced perfectly, written perfectly, shot perfectly, and performed perfectly. I highly, highly recommend this season (but, of course, after watching the first three seasons -- incredibly important!).

BB captures the most vulgar aspects of this, the most philistine culture of all time, spawned by the capitalist paradise - the empire at the precipice of its fall - in no way inspiring - schadenfreude at its best

Engaging urban legend story which has a bit of everything associated with major crimes and family drama. 4.5 vs 5 stars for the gold standard "The Wire".

Breaking Bad is the best show on television, hands down. Season 4 of Breaking Bad is the most perfect season of any series I've ever seen. If you are not watching....WATCH THIS SERIES!! If you are watching, then you already know! I also enjoy the comment about "Breaking Bad” resting as the third greatest television series according to IMDb. And noting that it is stretching it a little too far....I couldn't agree more....THIRD GREATEST?! It should be #1! Very smart and original television. Gets better with every episode and season. Went out with a bang!

“Breaking Bad” is currently resting as the third greatest television series according to IMDb. That’s definitely stretching it a little too far, but it’s certainly the show’s greatest season and it’s certainly a great show. The fourth season shows top notch crystal meth cooks, Walter White, an ex-high school teacher, and Jessie, a student of his from many years before. Under the tight watch of drug kingpin, Gustavo Fring, Walt and Jesse soon find themselves in an important moral decision about life and death. “Breaking Bad” is none for having some of the greatest writing and acting of any series currently on television. The series’ fourth season demonstrates this better than ever. The beginning of the series spends a great deal of time asking vital questions, and the rest of the season spends time answering them. The trouble is, while you’re watching the beginning of the season, it doesn’t quite seem to work until you’ve finished the season. While you’re watching it, it feels as though the writers are intentionally making it as slow as possible, and making decisions the audience finds ridiculous, so we’ll be surprised. The trouble was, we knew that these everything would make sense in the end, and so it became more predictable. Nonetheless, in the end of the season, everything jumps off the rails and goes straightforward in a fast paced testimony of how gripping and intense a TV series can truly be. Bryan Cranston is as great as ever as Walter White. His sanity is realistically questioned, which helps portray an alternate side to the character. Aaron Paul is at possibly his worst as the writers deliver an attempt at making him multidimensional with it’s share of ups and downs. Anna Gunn plays Skylar White, who is once again, delivers a solid performance. Giancarlo Esposito plays Gus, the season’s villain. His character is probably the greatest written character of the season. The flaw with villains in film and television is the fact that they are mostly depicted as being simply “evil”. Gus is a human character who may do the same actions as a typical villain, but at least he his action are written so they make sense and so there’s no doubt in our mind that they’re natural. Everybody loves style as long as it has substance as well. “Breaking Bad” fills in the check mark for both of those boxes. “Breaking Bad” is an astonishingly cool series in the style of a smart and sleek modern gangster epic. As for substance, “Breaking Bad” has very dark theories about what happens to people when they’re put to the test. It’s all about what happens to people when they gradually become a monster. This season is easily the darkest, and the smartest. I give it a strong and sincere recommendation.

Best show on television, ever! Only ones close were the Soprano's and Wire on HBO years ago. Breaking Bad has gotten better with each successive season. None other was able to do that. Best show without a doubt, ever made for TV.

Best show on television. Hands down.

The 4th season doesn't feature Walt and his 'stuff' very much. Sometimes in these long form sagas the season-ender is so powerful that the writers can’t seem to recover for many episodes the next season. That happened here. It’s happened on “Weeds” and several others. ===== The Soul and Spirit of all of these tv long-forms is the central character, the Tony Soprano. If they are ignored it fall way off. Don’t do it. In “Shameless” Wm Macy keeps a small role, but the very life force ‘j’nais se quoi’ of his character holds all together. Think about it. Nothing would hold us if they all didn’t get definition from him. It’s good he’s a master actor and has that ‘gravitas’ (even though he’s not good at comedy). ======== They do get back to Walter eventually so I look forward to season 5. Of course, this is a great show anyway.

If you haven't seen Breaking Bad, you are REALLY missing out, BIG time! Most likely THEE Best dramatic television show, EVER. The only show that might be in any real competition for that title would be 'Homeland.' It's as good as an Academy Award nominated film, only it's roughly 60 hours long, in all. When it's great, the more the better, I say! And it keeps getting better and better, with each new season. I am quite saddened that it is now in it's fifth and final season. It will be dearly missed. Somewhat ironically, the show is addictive, like crystal meth! Just try and watch only one episode per sitting, I dare you! Don't be surprised if you sit down to watch one episode at about 9pm at night, only to find yourself saying you are going to watch just one more, and that's it, at 1:30am. These characters are very well written, and they pull you in so much that you never want to say goodbye. I dare say you have never seen more character development in your life. The people you see in the very beginning are in many ways hardly recognizable with the characters of the same names you see towards the end. I envy anyone who is about to watch this show for the very first time. You are so lucky, and you don't even know it. What an adventure awaits you! What viewing pleasure you have in store. Make sure to savor every moment, because you will regret it if you don't. This is a most tasty "meal" that can never be tasted the same way again, not like the first time. Now go check out the DVD -- what are you waiting for!?!
