Just when you think this television series could not get any better it does just that. Each season is better than the previous one. The brilliant premise of having a mild mannered high school chemistry teacher find out he has terminal cancer then decide to become a meth cooker and dealer in order to leave his family some money is a winner in every way. Pairing him with a former student who is a small-time drug dealer is sheer genius. The chemistry (pun intended) between the two leads is great and the backbone of the series. Rarely a misstep has been made. It has become one of the best written shows in the history of television.
Season four ended with an unforgettably explosive cliffhanger and so you would have expected some let down in season five but that is not the case. While the beginning of season five was a little slower it does pick up in the second half. Overall, Breaking Bad continues to be a must watch television show.
