Season 5:Seasons Of Breaking Bad

This was a great wrap up season and also one of the best seasons of Breaking Bad. It was entertaining and fun, each episode is better than the one before that. The character of Walt retires from the business and kills Mike. The dessert fight was great. With the death of Gus, the conclusion of the series seemed perfect. All in all, an incredible ending to an absolutely unbelievable show.

Season 3:Seasons Of Breaking Bad

For some reason, this season was running at quite a slow pace and at some points became a bit boring. Jesse and Andrea are involved romantically. A new assistant Gale is introduced. Although the season had its high points as well as we see an ugly side of Walt and Jesse. The ending in each of the episodes was quite thrilling and you can’t just stop without watching the next one.

Season 2:Seasons Of Breaking Bad

After watching the second season you will have a completely different point of view on the show. The best episode being “The Phoenix”. Walt is slowly turning evil and his greed to acquire more can be seen well. The main storyline was still not that dark and complex as we see in the later seasons.

Season 1:Seasons Of Breaking Bad

Somehow the first season seems to be rushed, Walt’s diagnosis and his plan were all moved at a very fast pace. Both the characters of Jesse and Walt are just sad. There was a shady humor but still, it was a pretty dull season as compared to the others. This clearly makes it one of the worst Seasons Of Breaking Bad ever.

  1. I have been watching TV for over 45 to 50 years. By far and away Breaking Bad was the BEST SHOW I HAVE EVER SEEN. For 5 years I never missed a single episode, ever.I kind of agree with the review ,but will say to me the story line from Beginning to end with “GUS” just blew me away totally.His death seen was the most dramatic and well written horrific scene I have ever seen.Walter Whites transformation was unbelieveable from start to finish. Jesses character was also done very well and showed a soft side that was perfect to Walt’s evil change.I do not think there will ever be another show like this. It is sad to say that I feel the TV writers are running out of ideas for new story lines for new shows.
    Just my thoughts…
