News & Interviews for Breaking Bad: Season 1
It's unpredictable and stimulating, like the drug that White manufactures, but it produces a much safer high.
The show tries too hard to be socially relevant, with Walt representing a desperate middle class attempt to gain footing.
Its achievement rarely matches its ambitions, but the effect is still pretty dope.
Breaking Bad falls around the middle of the pack in the new wave of cable dramas. But it's got a solid cast and a good upside.
Cranston's performance alone is enough to keep me watching for a while, but I'd like to see something resembling a completed formula, and soon.
Occasionally, something will pop up to remind us of just how good television can be when smart writers come up with an intriguing concept and execute it well.
So far the ride in the Winnebago has been worth even the price of having to see those jocks.
Creator and executive producer Vince Gilligan has crafted a show that veers into black comedy over the course of the first three episodes, one that is bloody, unpleasant and tedious.
Cranston tackles the role with a measured intensity, bravely putting Walt's flaws and human frailties out on display for all to see. He manages to make you root for the guy even when you know his actions are seriously misguided.
About as addictive as any drama that has ever been on television.
The morality of Walter's actions and the bleakness of his situation will doubtless be explored in later episodes. But for now its unusual protagonist and offbeat humour show a good deal of promise.

Nov 22, 2020Vince Gilligan's masterpiece initiates with a strong presentation containing a well-crafted story and interesting characters, but most of all, the plot elements such as drama and black comedy are perfectly balanced to form the shape of the essence of the show: tragedy.
