Breaking Bad: The Final Season – Blu-ray Edition

Sadly the final eight episodes after a glorious six season (really five seasons but because season five was divided into two parts some consider it two separate seasons) run that kept us on the edge of our seats with some of the most original storylines in television history. The story of a mild mannered high school chemistry teacher who after finding out he has terminal cancer decides to provide his family with financial security after he dies by cooking and selling meth. Walter (played by Bryan Cranston) hooks up with small time drug dealer Jesse (played by Aaron Paul), a young guy who used to be one of his students, to help him sell the stuff he makes. Because he is a chemistry expert the meth Walter designs is some of the best on the market and his stuff is high in demand. The quality of meth brings Walter and Jesse a lot of money and along with their success a lot of trouble. Over the course of the six seasons the two characters have had to deal with a lot of stuff and as a result their characters have gone on interesting evolution arcs. Breaking Bad has ended but has gone out with a bang rather than a whimper. As if you expected anything different.
