Breaking Bad – Seasons 4 & 5

Breaking Bad – Seasons 4 & 5

I finished it! I’ve been watching this fucking show since about 2010. So, this was a gripping exercise in Stockholm Syndrome… Amazing series though – SUCH a change from where it all started, and yet a plausible plot arc. The final few episodes really ramped up the bleakness but it was a superb story, superbly told. And particularly the moments which had you celebrating along with the cast – like the methylamine train heist – despite the fact they were doing something objectively awful (i.e. cooking crystal meth), and then the breathtaking counterpoint of the kid getting shot.  It’s doubtful I’ll ever watch it AGAIN, but man, what a ride. 👍
