Critic Reviews for Breaking Bad Season 3

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (19)

Walter has long since become irredeemable... But Cranston is magnetic; it's no wonder he snagged a third consecutive Emmy for this season.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

With its sense of place, its spare dialogue and its oddball peripheral characters, Breaking Bad is the closest that TV comes to the best Coen brothers movies. That's pretty high praise.

Jan 15, 2014 | Full Review…

Through it all, Breaking Bad still has the power to make a viewer care about what befalls the Whites.

Jan 15, 2014 | Rating: A | Full Review…

The shadows are deep enough over "Breaking Bad" that it's hard to imagine a ray of hope or light shining through anywhere. But the actors and writers are so good that, like Walt, we'll keep looking for it.

Mar 21, 2010 | Full Review…

AMC's "Breaking Bad" - still the best drama you're not watching.

Mar 21, 2010 | Full Review…

"Breaking Bad'' is one of the most cinematic TV series I've ever seen, a visually sophisticated work in which every shot has been micromanaged, every color has something to say.

Mar 21, 2010 | Full Review…

Breaking Bad is well on its way to becoming an American dramatic classic.

Feb 12, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

It's funny, heartbreaking, and extremely intense, leading up to a season finale that builds and builds until you find yourself screaming at your television.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

A subdued affair save for multiple homicides and a nightmarish undercurrent that ran throughout.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

No half measures for this series, ever. And harking back to the brilliant "Fly" episode, the contamination (moral) is now complete.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

While you'll revel in the stillness of the sporadic long, compelling takes, Breaking Bad has in no way lost its zing, quirk or remarkably realistic craziness.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

As a show it's never been overly concerned with your expectations of it, and certainly not with your preconceptions of TV traditions as a whole; it just does what it does and lets you catch up in your own time.

Audience Reviews for Breaking Bad: Season 3

  • 2d ago
    At this season, it starts to be the great Breaking Bad. It innovates while staying at his finest form. With the new collaboration with Gus Fring, new dangerous situations and events happen and we like it. It still has excellent acting by Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston and the scripts and storylines have never been that good. True art!
  • Mar 17, 2021
    Season 3 continues Breaking Bad's nonstop momentum with fantastic performances and characters.
  • Mar 14, 2021
    The Greatest Television Show of all time!
  • Feb 25, 2021
    The same fantastic writing with now a much more sophisticated villain, as well as having more gripping drama and performances.
  • Feb 23, 2021
    The Great Tv show i never seen
  • Feb 20, 2021
    The masterpiece is at the start of its peak. Cranston, Paul, and Gunn continue their fantastic performances. Gus Fring proves to be a compelling villain, and Saul is just the best. Walter White's fall into darkness is proving to be the greatest character arc in history as it dials up this season. My Rating - 9.3/10
  • Feb 17, 2021
    Breaking Bad's third season is VERY appealing and surprising but yet nonetheless delivers an amazing season with 13 episodes that strike you with a TON of different emotions that leaves you on the edge of your seat the WHOLE time. It was SO great! I can't wait to start Season 4 soon!!
  • Feb 01, 2021
    Quite honestly puts other television shows to shame.
  • Jan 08, 2021
    One of, if not the best TV show ever made in every conceivable way. It's perfect.
  • Jan 04, 2021
    Terrific! Some truly iconic moments in this season.
