Critic Reviews for Breaking Bad Season 3

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (17)

Tightly written and punctuated with Coen brothers-like humour, Breaking Bad is, rather appropriately for a show about meth dealers, eye-bleedingly addictive. I defy you not to become hooked.

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

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.

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

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.

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

Mar 21, 2010 | 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.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Breaking Bad's third season addresses past decisions and forces the characters to deal with the consequences. It's a season of fallout, wherein the question is no longer about locating and resolving the ethical dilemmas of what's been done.

    Breaking Bad's third season somehow improves upon its forner content once again.

    I have watched all 05 seasons My Rating 10/10 !!!No Spoilers!!! A story of chemistry teacher who have lungs cancer and married family guy with kids and running from very bad financial crises. Its A tremendous film to get comprehensive info how drugs mafia works how drugs dealing system works how much difficulties a normal guy will face in this industry and how much money involved in this black market. It a full of action film full of crimes but its also a roller coaster of emotions when you will watch you will emotionally get attached with jesse character. I love the dialogue When Walt says there is no f**king God so don't wait for him and solve your f**king issues. It makes it interesting how a family guy manages his family life and criminal life separately and makes connections and links of his words in order to not get caught he was successful. I Loved the series, A must watch series for Action lover and Crime genre films lover. Best Regards

    How did they improve on perfection?! This show is so good it is making me question my whole belief system. It belongs in the 'Quantum Realm' in the company of the other two 'impossibly good' works of genius reside. 'The Godfather II' and 'Star Wars Ep V: The Empire Strikes Back'. Experiences that even after dozens of viewings and decades of meticulous examination somehow still hold up to critical scrutiny by todays standards. More impressive though is how they still give me butterfly's in my tummy whenever I watch them. I've worked out how this happens, it's the sub-atomic particles that are released into existence whenever perfection is bettered in our world. If you don't believe me try watching them yourself and feel the Protons, Neutron and Electrons bumping around like the worlds smallest dodgem ride in you belly.

    Outside of the fly episode it is almost perfect television.
