Breaking Bad: Season 4 Reviews

October 18, 2019
That so much of this material was, by Gilligan's admission, written on the fly (no season-three pun intended!) is amazing. It all fits together better than it has any right to.

Breaking Bad is dark and almost dormant... with most of the main characters mired in depression, anger, fear and/or apathy. That doesn't mean it's not compelling.

Breaking Bad is one of the most stylish shows on TV, sometimes to the point of being show-offy.

One of television's greatest dramas goes unflinchingly into the continued transformation of its lead character from likable to something beyond despicable. It's one of the most fearless and selfless gambits ever hatched in the name of enduring art.

It's like being home again, where chain-link fences, crumbling adobe, rusted motel signs and sketchy characters abound beneath all that amazing sky.

Either appropriately or ironically for a show about meth cookers, "Bad" is simply one of TV's great addictions.

Breaking Bad is back, and bent on upending every expectation you bring to it.

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.
