  1. First I want to say that this series is great and if you haven’t seen it yet or are unsure about it, buying this affordable set is a great way to test it out with the first seven episodes now available in high def. If you like those episodes or if you’re one of the people who already love this series then this Blu-Ray Set is for you. It contains the complete first season of AMC’s Breaking Bad in seven one hour long episodes.

    In short the plot is a more serious Bryan Cranston than we’ve seen playing chemistry teacher Walter White, who gets diagnosed with cancer. With a son, Walter Jr, who is disabled and a wife, Skyler, who is pregnant with her second child in her late thirties he decides the best way to take care of his family is to start making crystal meth with one of his old dead beat students, Jesse. The further he goes to try and provide for his family the darker and more complicated his life becomes with crazy drug dealer’s, increasing extended family issues with his wife’s sister, Marie, and to top it off a bother in law, Hank, who is a Drug Enforcement Administration Officer.

    The episodes found on this set are:

    Ep 1: Pilot – Walter White is a high school chemistry teacher who learns that he has lung cancer. With a new lease on life, Walter becomes a drug dealer to secure his family’s financial security.

    Ep 3: …and the Bag’s in the River – Walter is left to deal with Krazy-8 alone following an argument with Jesse. After Marie raises concerns that Walt Jr. is smoking cannabis, Hank shows him the dangers of drug use.

    Aired: 2/10/2008

    Ep 4: Cancer Man – The DEA becomes suspicious of a new drug kingpin. Walt reveals that he has cancer to Marie and Hank. Elsewhere, Jesse visits his estranged family.

    Aired: 2/17/2008

    Ep 5: Gray Matter – Walter and Skyler attend a former colleague’s party. Jesse tries free himself from the drugs. Later, Skyler organizes an intervention for Walt.

    Aired: 2/24/2008

    Ep 6: Crazy Handful of Nothin’ – The side effects of chemo begin to plague Walt, who is also cooking meth again. Jesse’s friend, Skinny Pete, introduces him to a distributor named Tuco, but things go awry and Jesse ends up hospitalised.

    Aired: 3/2/2008

    Ep 7: A No-Rough-Stuff Type Deal – Walter accepts his new identity as a drug dealer after a PTA meeting. Elsewhere, Jesse decides to put his aunt’s house on the market, and Skyler is the recipient of a baby shower.

    Aired: 3/9/2008

    Special Features Included In The Set Are:

    Commentaries on episodes one and six by actor Bryan Cranston (Walter White), series creator Vince Gilligan and the largest commentary cast of actor’s I’ve ever heard with everyone on the show from Aaron Paul (who plays Jesse) to RJ Mitte (who plays Walter Jr.).

    Making of Breaking Bad: A Behind The Scenes Featurette.

    Inside Breaking Bad: Interviews with cast and crew reveal how they make the series and all the attention to detail that goes into making it realistic as possible.

    AMC Shootout Interviews: Interviews/Discussions with Bryan Cranston, Vince Gilligan and others taken from the AMC Shootout show.

    There are also Deleted Scenes, A Photo Gallery, Actor Screen Tests and A Breaking Bad Commercial.

    I feel this show and the quality being put into it will help make it the next version of the Wire, while Mad Men is more like the equivilant to the next version of Sopranos yet both shows are something entirely of their own. I suggest fans of television that is made like movies give both these series a try. Breaking Bad’s first season barely broke the surface of these character’s and the storyline possibilties they hold. Thanks for your time.
