Folks, I have a confession to make.
I'm am addict.
I am addicted to the TV series "Breaking Bad."
Yes, I admit it. I am ADDICTED . . . to this TV series.
I am presently binge watching via my Netflix DVD queue. No, I don't do streaming, I wait for the DVD's to arrive my mail.
Tonight at the Tipton Cinema I begin Season 3 of the adventures of Walter White and Jesse Pinkham, meth makers.
I know I'm late to the game here. I've heard a lot about "Breaking Bad" in the past few years. But I'm one of those people that resist falling for whatever the current flavor of the month. All too often I've subscribed only to be disappointed, re "House of Cards" (which I didn't like at all even though I like Kevin Spacey).
Last year, while Pat and I were visiting Philadelphia he talked me into watching an episode of "Breaking Bad" at the hotel where we were staying in Philadelphia. I resisted but I relented to Pat's pleadings and watched. I.WAS.HOOKED.
I'm not going to go into all the details of the series and the character development (which is all excellent) but what I will say is:
THIS IS THE BEST TV OR MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN!
There, is that a definitive statement or what?
You know me, I do like a good movie or a good TV series. All too often I've been disappointed but not this time.
Everything is good here. The writing, the acting, the production values . . . . . . . .
|The "Breaking Bad" cast receiving one of their many well deserved awards - BEST SHOW EVER!|
Why I like this show so much other than the superb acting, writing and productions values is that the story is one that all of can identify with. All of us have a little "Walter White" in us. Oh yes, we all have a "Walter White" weakness.
There are so many facets to the Walter White character. The good and . . . the bad. And just how far are we willing to go to protect our family and our sanity and our self-respect.
Oh yes folks, we are all Walter White. I've had my "Walter White" moments as I'm sure most of you have too. If you haven't, then you haven't lived.
