BREAKING BAD REVIEW
I just concluded, a tough, but rewarding journey through Breaking Bad. 5 seasons of Walter White and his wild meth adventures. It was not easy at times, episodes like the Fly, made me want to check out and the overall character dynamics sometimes angered me to a certifiable level, but I made it! All the way, 5 seasons and the conclusion.
Overall, I loved the character of Walter White, usually. I felt though, maybe from expectations, many more opportunities for Walt to kick some science butt as it were. If the entire show had been as exciting as the last episode, or honestly, a TENTH as exciting I would have been more inclined to put this in my top five shows. But, with that, I enjoyed it, but it is not my favorite or even my top five really. I know I might be in the minority here, but there was some major slow areas that caused me much distress.
It was like a roller coaster of excitement and boredom, instead of some grey. I got mostly bored with secondary characters that seemed only to exist to get to the last season. Good show and I was late getting to it, but I got there and now it’s over….on to Westworld I guess…..
Highlights: Anytime Walt used his brain and it worked.
Cons: Anything with Walt’s family and when his brain power still led to constant losing. (till the end of course)
