I feel like someone has to say this... yes, at this price point this is a bit of a rip off (even if it's 8 episodes of one of the greatest TV shows of all time, and these 8 are amazing), this should be $19.99, maybe $24.99 max, but no one should have felt "tricked" or anything like some of the reviews suggest. I know we live in the age of Netflix, where Arrested Development just gets released all at once, but Breaking Bad is a cable TV show. The final 8 episodes of season 5 hadn't aired yet, did you actually think they were going to sell them on DVD and you'd have the entire series before everyone else got to see it on TV? Also, clearly some of you are new to buying DVDs. When seasons of The Sopranos first came out, they were $80 or so.
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.
