  1. What do you get when you take a series that had a great first season, and add it up with its downright brilliant second season? The best damn thing on TV, is what you get.

    Vince Gilligan and his crew created something original and daring, I was aware of that the first time I saw the pilot episode. I was immediately fascinated by the use of camera, the clever editing and of course the beautiful scenery – which very quickly became a character of its own.

    You get all those things in season two as well, but in addition the writing is as deep as it only is on one other show on TV right now(Mad Men). It’s just an entirely different level.

    The subject only got uglier this season, there are multiple scenes that are painful to watch, which is a testimonial to the writing and the acting alone – it feels incredibly real, and it is truly gut-wrenching.

    Every character has its place in this season. Not only Walt and Jesse are the ones being developed, no, Hank, Marie, Skyler, to name a few, they all are very carefully written and not just being used as meaningless additions to fill some empty spots. Walt’s continuing involvement with the drug world drives him further away from his wife Skyler, as he stays out longer and more frequent with no explanations or explanations that are obvious and demeaning lies. This makes for some very powerful scenes.

    Hank’s career takes an unexpected turn, and becomes surprisingly interesting as he struggles with some shocking events he had to experience – all due to Walt.

    The performances by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are spectacular. This season is a lot more serious than the first. It’s a process that began with the very first episode. Walt got himself into a world of trouble and he seems to be pulling down everyone around him, and this season showed some results of that already. This process the actors of course have to adapt to as well, and boy do they adapt fast and flawlessly. Aaron Paul is the breakout star of this season, it’s not an easy job to shine when you have to work alongside an actor like Bryan Cranston, but he does. It’s a given that both their Emmy nominations, respectively wins, were highly deserved.

    There is too much to write about here, this season is packed with brilliant moments. I’m not a good enough reviewer to address them all. Let me just say if they manage to continue on this level of quality, Breaking Bad will go down in history as one of the greatest shows of all time, up there with The Sopranos.

    Spread the word, this one’s a gem.

  2. I’m glad they are finally giving this amazingly filmed show a Blu-Ray release for it’s second season and they are going back to release the first season on Blu-Ray as well. The second season of this AMC series starts right where the first dramatic season left off. From there it winds down a dark path where you can’t see what’s coming while still managing to up the stakes and get you more involved with the characters with each passing episode. While I wasn’t quite prepared for where this season ended I have high hopes for the third season that will premiere this winter and highly recommend the first and second seasons to fans of well made television and certainly for fans of this series to rewatch it and notice things they’ve missed in first viewing. This 3-disc Blu-Ray set will contain the following episodes from season 2 of Breaking Bad (No Spoiler’s):

    Seven Thirty-Seven

    Walt and Jesse try to end their deal with Tuco. Meanwhile, Hank attempts to repair Marie and Skyler’s relationship.

    Grilled

    With Walt and Jesse trapped with Tuco, Marie and Hank comfort Skyler over his disappearance.

    Bit by a Dead Bee

    Walt and Jesse’s become short on cash when they try to cover their tracks. Meanwhile, the DEA has a lead that could get them straight to Walt and Jesse.

    Down

    Walt attempts to reconnect with his family, while Jesse struggles to rebuild his life.

    Breakage

    Hank suffers from the aftermath of his encounter with Tuco. Meanwhile, Jesse hires a crew to get their product out on the streets.

    Peekaboo

    Walt’s secret is in jeopardy when Skyler thanks Gretchen for paying for his treatment. Jesse tries to please Walt by ‘manning up’ and getting back some money that was lifted from one of their new crew, but he runs into complications.

    Negro Y Azul

    Rumors fly about Jesse’s recent actions as he and Walt discuss expanding their business into new territories. Hank struggles to fit in with his new co-workers in El Paso. Skyler pursues a new job opportunity that reconnects her with a former colleague. Jesse gets to know his landlord, Jane

    Better Call Saul

    When Badger finds himself in trouble with the law, Walt and Jesse seek the legal advice of a shady attorney, Saul Goodman. The DEA believe they may have finally caught up with the elusive ‘Heisenberg.’ Hank returns to Albuquerque, but his troubled mental state and demeanor cause Marie to worry.

    4 Days Out

    Walt interrupts Jesse’s weekend plans to inform his partner they’ll have to cook for four days straight, or risk losing their batch of methylamine. Out in the desert things get heated between them when they wind up stranded.

    Over

    With Walt’s disease in remission, the Whites throw a party for all those who’ve supported him through the ordeal, but the mood is ruined when Walt and Hank argue. Skyler is worried about Walt’s emotional state as Walt tries various home improvement projects to occupy himself. Jane continues her relationship with Jesse but keeps this secret from her father.

    Mandala

    Saul suggests a new business partner for Walt. Skyler discovers something shocking at work. Jesse tells Jane about his ‘job’. When an unreliable Jesse isn’t there at a crucial moment, Walt must choose between an important moment in his familie’s life or possibly scoring a big deal.

    Phoenix

    Skyler deals with newly developed family dynamic. Walter Jr. launches a new website to raise money for the family. Jane convinces Jesse to stand up to Walt. Walt makes a decision, or lack thereof, that sends him further down a path of darkness.

    ABQ

    Skyler’s frustration with Walt’s secrecy boils over; Jesse heads further down a path of self-destruction, and only Walt is willing to help him; and a grief-stricken Donald experiences more tragedy. Walt’s recent poor decisions have a much larger negative affect on others than he could ever have anticipated.

    ‘Seven Thirty-Seven’ is an amazing season opener that leaves one anxiously awaiting the rest of the season. ‘Grilled’ provides a level of tension and excitement so high it leaves one wondering how the rest of the season will follow. While it does level out excitement-wise from there each episode is amazingly well crafted and dramatic from beginning to end. Other stand out episodes for me this season were ‘4 Days Out’ and ‘Mandala’. ABQ is also an incredibly well done season finale that leaves things in total chaos and wide open for the third season. Truly though, every episode stands out as excellently entertaining television making.

    The Writer’s Lab- An Interactive Guide to the Elements of an Episode. (Blu-Ray Exclusive)

    Cop Talk With Dean Norris, Deleted Scenes, Gag Reel, “Negro Y Azul” Music Video, “Better Call Saul” Commercial, Vince Gilligan’s Photo Gallery, a Season 1 Recap and a Season 3 Sneak Peak.

    This set is well worth the money with the amount of in depth bonus features you are getting along with the full season of 13 episodes as opposed to the first season set, which on account of the writer’s strike, only had seven. These episodes are truly great televsion making and will certainly look great in High Definition. I highly recommend this set to any fan of well made television drama and obviously fans of this series. Thanks for your time.
