Breaking Bad is one of the best show I've seen and easily a 5/5 stars. The characters are very well developed, the story and the seasons just get better and better without any "weak" seasons.
There is also a lot of bonus included in this set (including uncensored and extended version of some episodes).
But why a 4 stars if it is the perfect box of one of the best TV series ever ? I'm a French Canadian and the description said "Billingual" and in the "Dubbed" section, it is written "French, Spanish". But what isn't said is that only the last two season (5 and Final) are in French, the first four are only in English (with French subtitles). I would have liked to see this in the description since I thought they were all in French (which is unfortunate to some non-English speaking French Canadians).
If you don't already have the series on Blu-Ray, this is what you should buy.
I have placed a request for a 'replacement' but since they are out of stock, I am left wondering if I will receive what I ordered and paid for. The agent offered to keep an eye on the stock for the next several weeks and noted my account for follow up. I certainly hope there is at least a 're-issue' of the 'drum' for these as the original is definitely less than sturdy construction. For a 'collector's set', one would expect a higher standard of manufacturing.
few series that competes with the best films in history for achievement in cinematic storytelling.
Like a great novel slowly unfolding, it's funny, heartbreaking, incredibly tense, deeply disturbing.
A nebbishy high-school science teacher finds he has lung cancer, so becomes a meth dealer to
make money for his family before his death. Often visually stunning, with a breathtaking
performance by Brian Cranston in the lead, and great work from all the supporting roles,
this portrait of a man's decent into hell couldn't be much better, and it just grows darker and
more disturbing each year.
In a way, thematically it recalls "The Godfather I and II" in how that epic charts Michael's journey
from innocence to darkness, along with the moral murkiness of the endless drive for money
and success - how we lose ourselves, so that succeeding and having ever more becomes an
end in itself for which we will pay any price, rather than a route to happiness, trapping us in a
game we can never win.
Kudos too, to creator Vince Gilligan to have the courage to end the show at just the right time
rather than string it out past where the story would bear. It may take a few episodes to get into,
but you oweit to yourself to try. This is powerful, important and utterly enthralling stuff.
As for this box-set, at the current price of $198 it's not the rip off some of these sets are.
To buy all 6 sets on blu-ray would cost nearly as much, and there are some cool extras
here for fans of that sort of thing. That said, if you already have much of the series, the extras
may not be so amazing as to warrant a double dip.
And yeah, "bilingual", I'm just watching the first season now and no clue where the french audio is. Ain't a problem for me, but some of my family members aren't speaking english at all and reading subtitles can be boring.
The 2 stars are there because the series is amazing, I'm just disappointed about the container, not the content. Don't know if the box is really fragile or if the shipping was disastrous or the seller a thief.
The boxset itself is great quality. I actually like the way they split the CD with discs of glass (almost like a petri dish). There's another CD in under the top lid with 2 hours documentary (we'll watch it soon).
It's an awesome product and if you can get your hand on it in sale just jump on it.
