Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul return in their Emmy® -winning roles of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in the fifth explosive season of Breaking Bad. With Gus Fring dead, Walt's transformation from a well-meaning family man to ruthless drug kingpin is nearly complete. Forming a partnership with Jesse and Mike (Jonathan Banks), Walt proceeds to make a killing in the meth business until the fruits of his murderous schemes are threatened by a new development in the investigation led by his relentless brother-in-law Hank (Dean Norris). Executive produced by Vince Gilligan and Mark Johnson, the fifth season charts the murderous rise of Walter White as he reaches new highs...and new lows.

Also, for those of you saying "Well, I'll just wait for The Complete Season 5", looks like the wait is going to be a long one. Amazon has put "Breaking Bad: The Final Season" up for pre-order, and it's very likely that this will just be the final 8 episodes. Until they do some sort of special edition where you get the entire series, I don't think you're going to see the two half seasons in the same box set. If you have Netflix already, my advice is to just watch the episodes on there until you can find this for a better deal than what they're charging now, or just bite the bullet and pay for it. It's expensive, but it's "grade school teeball vs the New York Yankees", Breaking Bad IS the best current series on TV, and by the time it wraps up it may be one of the best, if not the best, complete TV dramas of all time.
DO NOT ORDER THIS YET
Unfortunately, I had already processed it for my small island library so it had a little bit of sticky stuff on it after I removed the card and pocket. I am disappointed that a zone 2 dvd would be sold to a zone 1 buyer. Does anyone check on this typed of thing?
It's hard to shake off the feeling that we DVD purchasers are being taken advantage of - that there is a downside to preordering. If this is what happens then next time I shall think twice about preordering at all.
The half season begins with Walt's 52nd birthday and him buying weapons for some unknown purpose. This arc never gets resolved in the half season at all. This is unfair on the viewer. It shows that the partitioning of Season 5 into two segments is unnatural. The arc needs to get resolved.
Looking on the bright side, the only good thing about this being half a season is that it means we still have another second half to look forward to!
And this is a truly great season, or half a season. I was completely blown away. What series gets better and better like this one does? This season's episodes are more taut and concentrated. One of the most enjoyable I have ever watched.
A heck of a lot goes on in Season 5. There are some magnetic moments in more ways than one.
All the cast are at the top of their game here. I would single out the memorable performance of Jonathan Banks, who plays Fring's former bagman, Mike. I think he deserves an Emmy for this one. The tension between Walt and Mike is one of the compelling features in some of these episodes.
There is one scene where Mike has to dispose of an incriminating laptop.Read more ›
