"A must have DVD for fans"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Ever since I watched the first Breaking Bad episode I was hooked. There was a large delay between the screening of the seasons on TV here which meant it was easy to forget some of the storyline, so owning the DVD allows me to revisit the complete first season and enjoy it all over again. The special features are a real bonus too.

I was surprised to actually discover that it's a 3 disc set, not a 2 disc set as it's advertised. The quality is fantastic and the lack of commercial breaks is very pleasing.

If you're a fan of Breaking Bad, or missed the first season on TV then I'll highly suggest getting this DVD. It's well worth the money and can be watched a countless amount of times. 5-stars from me. Looking forward to when Mighty Ape has the second season for sale.

"Best television drama on tv."
5 stars"

I caught season 2 of Breaking Bad on C4 and was hooked. I knew straight away I had to buy season 1 on DVD and find out how it began.

The acting is top notch from the cast especially Bryan Cranston, who plays hero? Walter White in the lead.

The episodes are quite gritty because of the subject matter (dealing crystal meth) not to mention nudity, bad language and mild violence.

But there is some funny dialogue, character interactions and black humour that will have you quietly laughing and feeling guilty for doing so.

Breaking Bad: The Complete First Season also contains the usual bonus features like deleted scenes, interviews and behind the scenes footage.

Sadly only 7 episodes were made for season 1 because of the 2008 American Writers Guild strike. But don't let that put you off from buying the DVD set as you will want to rewatch the episodes again and again.

This is must own DVD.

"Seriously good TV"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is one of those few cases where a show actually lives up to all the hype. Rather than simply glorifying drug culture, Breaking Bad delves deeply into the emotional, legal, and moral repercussions facing an otherwise law-abiding family man's decision to ensure that his loved ones are provided for after his death. It could just have easily been called ‘Slippery Slope’, as one step into the criminal underworld leads to another and the main character gets dragged more and more deeply into an unfamiliar world with no rules, where every decision is fraught with danger. A well thought out, fully immersive and gripping programme – one episode is never enough.

Description

Emmy Award winner Bryan Cranston stars as Walter White, a down-on-his-luck chemistry teacher struggling to make ends meet for his wife (Anna Gunn) and physically challenged son (RJ Mitte). Everything changes when Walter receives a startling diagnosis: terminal lung cancer. With only a few years to live and nothing to lose, Walter uses his training as a chemist to cook and sell crystal meth with one of his former students (Aaron Paul). As his status grows, so do his lies, but Walt will stop at nothing to make sure his family is taken care of after he's gone, even if it means putting all their lives on the line.

Breaking Bad has received widespread critical acclaim and won two Emmy Awards for its first season, in addition to numerous other awards and nominations.
