Breaking Bad

 

Breaking Bad is another of those hip-as-hell critic's darling TV series from an unlikely cable network (AMC). The challenging drama (they call it a black comedy, but while there are big laughs to be had, the drama far outweighs the comedy) stars Malcolm in the Middle dad Bryan Cranston in a fearless (and Emmy-winning) performance as a bland, bored high school chemistry teacher who, after learning he has terminal cancer, decides to raise money for his family by manufacturing meth. Crime makes him perk up considerably. The show is very dark and not for the timid, but man, is it gripping, well-written, surprising and weirdly invigorating. 346 minutes. DVD INFO: Includes a commentary track on two episode, deleted scenes and featurettes.
