I don’t watch a massive amount of tv or follow a huge amount of shows, but once in a while something very very special comes along and just utterly grips you.
“Breaking Bad” is a series by the AMC network in the US. Not many people have heard of it over here but I cannot understand as it is one of the most fantastically made pieces of television ever. Basically it’s about a ordinary unassuming middle aged man (the Dad from Malcolm in the Middle) who’s a high school chemistry teacher, until he find’s out he’s got terminal cancer. To provide for his family after he dies, he tams up with an ex student come drug dealer, and starts producing methamphetamine – and subsequently becomes a massive drug kingpin in his home town of Albuquerque new Mexico.
It’s now just come to the end of it’s third series, I cannot wait for number 4. I spent many a night staying up to 2 or 3 in the morning as it is just so gripping I was unable to resist the temptation of watching ‘just one more episode’… It’s got many Emmy nominations and awards and it widely acclaimed. I really do not get why its not on more of the stations over here.
Check out this trailer, and just go watch it…
