As I write this review the end of Breaking Bad is upon us! It's the show everyone is talking about and for all the right reasons.
Vincent Gilligan has created the ultimate modern day Macbeth styled crime drama. Bryan Cranston is fantastic as Walter White, a mild mannered high school chemistry teacher, diagnosed with cancer and when faced with the realisation that his medical bills will bankrupt his family decides to put his chemistry skills to an alternative use. With the help of a former student, Jesse Pinkman , they start to manufacture methamphetamine, on a very small scale at first but Walter is far too good at it his growing reputation sees him develop into a whole new character, one of which becomes more and more ruthless and powerful.
All the characters are beautifully crafted and the writing never wavers in its excellence. However Mr Gilligan ends the show I for one will feel bereft and am wondering just what will fill my 'Breaking Bad' fix..
Summary: Breaking Bad is television at its best.
