Like The Sopranos, Breaking Bad finds nuance and drama within this compromised world, and in the process suggests intriguing and sometimes unsettling parallels to the world in which the rest of us live.

Audience Reviews for Breaking Bad: Season 4


Kicking things into high gear, the fourth season of "Breaking Bad" will almost feel like the conclusion to the show by the end, until you get until the very last scene, that has blown the minds of fans around the world. The season helms some of the best moments/episodes of the entire show, and although it has it's slow moments, this is really the defining chapter in which Walter White begins to go fully insane. The facinating transformation over the past four seasons seems more and more worth it the depper you get into this show. The performances keep getting better and the steaks are finally at an all-time high. Season four of "Breaking Bad" is the best season since the first. Overall, everyone has their moment in the spotlight here, and it definitely shows in the final product. With great writing, amazing twists, and a conclusion that will leave you staring at the television until the next season, season four is near perfect.


Super Reviewer

It continues to grab hold of the interests of hardcore fans and viewers alike as Breaking Bad comes into its fourth season. The show continues to grow in its mesmerizing story and is more pulse-pounding and strong in its leads Cranston & Paul. 5/5


Super Reviewer

another solid season, but a bit too much "mind game" scheming for my taste
