Clever and crafted with care, BREAKING BAD is one of the greatest television series ever. (I know, that's a big title to take.) This season, I believe, is what solidifies that status. Initially, this season was going to be the finale season, but the powers that be called for one last hurrah. However, I can understand how this would be the end and almost wish it had been. They could not have gone out in a more perfect way, if that had been. I easily rank this as one of the best seasons of all time, paced perfectly, written perfectly, shot perfectly, and performed perfectly. I highly, highly recommend this season (but, of course, after watching the first three seasons -- incredibly important!).

“Breaking Bad” is currently resting as the third greatest television series according to IMDb. That’s definitely stretching it a little too far, but it’s certainly the show’s greatest season and it’s certainly a great show. The fourth season shows top notch crystal meth cooks, Walter White, an ex-high school teacher, and Jessie, a student of his from many years before. Under the tight watch of drug kingpin, Gustavo Fring, Walt and Jesse soon find themselves in an important moral decision about life and death. “Breaking Bad” is none for having some of the greatest writing and acting of any series currently on television. The series’ fourth season demonstrates this better than ever. The beginning of the series spends a great deal of time asking vital questions, and the rest of the season spends time answering them. The trouble is, while you’re watching the beginning of the season, it doesn’t quite seem to work until you’ve finished the season. While you’re watching it, it feels as though the writers are intentionally making it as slow as possible, and making decisions the audience finds ridiculous, so we’ll be surprised. The trouble was, we knew that these everything would make sense in the end, and so it became more predictable. Nonetheless, in the end of the season, everything jumps off the rails and goes straightforward in a fast paced testimony of how gripping and intense a TV series can truly be. Bryan Cranston is as great as ever as Walter White. His sanity is realistically questioned, which helps portray an alternate side to the character. Aaron Paul is at possibly his worst as the writers deliver an attempt at making him multidimensional with it’s share of ups and downs. Anna Gunn plays Skylar White, who is once again, delivers a solid performance. Giancarlo Esposito plays Gus, the season’s villain. His character is probably the greatest written character of the season. The flaw with villains in film and television is the fact that they are mostly depicted as being simply “evil”. Gus is a human character who may do the same actions as a typical villain, but at least he his action are written so they make sense and so there’s no doubt in our mind that they’re natural. Everybody loves style as long as it has substance as well. “Breaking Bad” fills in the check mark for both of those boxes. “Breaking Bad” is an astonishingly cool series in the style of a smart and sleek modern gangster epic. As for substance, “Breaking Bad” has very dark theories about what happens to people when they’re put to the test. It’s all about what happens to people when they gradually become a monster. This season is easily the darkest, and the smartest. I give it a strong and sincere recommendation.
