Review
Creator Vince Gilligan and his team faced a hefty challenge to top Season 3, but they managed it. Superb performances by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are equalled by Giancarlo Esposito as chicken/meth kingpin Gus Fring. He stirs up trouble for our antiheroes and we get a stunning finale.

RE: Season 5. OMG!!!!!!!

I find the episode as just a build-up towards Season 5. I don't know if you're with me on this. From Box Cutter (1st episode) to Face Off (last episode), the whole season was just okay. ... More

More Addictive Than Meth (Apparently!)

This show is unquestionably the best prog around, not just now but for as long as I can remember. Everything about it is pitch perfect - script, pacing, performances, characters - there isn't a single episode that might be labelled "filler". Like Walt or Fring, the people making this show are meticulous, geniuses! Season 4 not only reiterates this fact, but hammers it home like a boxcutter to the jugular...and the ending? :o Season 5 is already progressing along the same lines, and... More

A Three Sentence Review?

The best season (so far) for the best show ever to grace our television sets. Season 5 is starting out strong as well. Not looking forward to this show ending, but it's been a great ride! ... More

RE: Brilliant!

Brilliant yes, but will there be a season 5? I hope not as the finale of season 4 finished it off perfectly. If they do another it will be downhill I reckon, best to leave it alone now, nothing worse than dragging a series out through a slow, painfull death, this story is complete leave it now and it will be remembered as great, try and carry on and it will fade into mediocrity I feel. ... More

Brilliant!

This show has been phenomenal from Season 1. Why it's taken nearly 2 years to release Season's 3 & 4 in the UK is beyond me. Roll on Season 5! ... More
