I rewatched this show earlier this year and even the second time around it was good, I would even say I enjoyed it more this time just because I caught on to more things. Admittedly the show does start a little slow, but the more you watch the more interesting it gets—especially toward season 3.
I think the best part of the show is the character development. It’s crazy seeing how different they are compared to the beginning.
I would honestly say this is one of my favorite shows ever, and I’d recommend it to anyone :)

It's the story of a compelling protagonist, a deeply flawed yet charismatic genius and his gradual descent from a school teacher to a drug lord. It has strong writing and execution, with plot twists coming in refreshing ways. Every single character is compelling to watch, as they develop throughout the series. This is a great show and I should have watched it a long time ago!

Clearly one of the best shows to ever grace the small screen, Breaking bad gets you invested in its characters through careful and strategic character development and marvelous writing. The excellent cinematography and clever sound design enhance the experience and by the time you finish the show you have lived with and are fully invested in the characters and their individual stories. Add to that a successful prequel and a tie up movie that does not disappoint and you can see why Vince Gilligan is a master of One.

Awesome gripping show. Realistic setting. Plays with out feelings. The transition of Walter White throughout this series makes us wonder - what does it take to change a man?

I must say it's pretty boring almost throughout the entire series. But you may have a different view than mine. The story revolves around a Chemist and his greed for money that led him to a dark path of creating purest drugs in a Mini-van. Not for children. Too much violence. I personally did't find it to be so interesting.
Once you start watching Breaking Bad from Season 1, it will feel a bit slow but gradually as the story progresses, it becomes strongly addictive just like any drug. The USP of the show is its strong writing and execution. Kudos to Vince Gilligan for that. The way character of Walter White develops over the seasons from being a normal Chemistry Prof to Drug Lord at the end is commendable. The show creator have not provided any reset button for the protagonist to go back and being good, like in some other shows, which also makes this show unique. The protagonist has many flaws, still you will not have option but to love him because of its brilliant portrayal by Bryan Cranston. He has won 4 Emmys for playing Mr. White. The chemistry between Walter White and Jesse Pinkman played by Aaron Paul, who is beyond outstanding, is lit. The other supporting actors especially the ones who play Gus Fring, Saul Goodman, Hank Schrader and Skyler White respectively have done commendable job. Season 4 where we see the cat and mouse chase between Walter White and Gus Fring is brilliantly done. The last 3 episodes, especially the third last, of Final season are one of the finest you will ever see in television history. I have rated this show just for the sake of writing review. This show is worth to preserve, keep in some museum and let the future generations to learn from it.
The climax is great at the end of every episode but the story is somewhat stretched and made a little boring for me. Acting is best by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul.
This hands down has to be one of the best TV shows of all time. The acting and entire story was just phenomenal
7.5...Best episodes are really really good tv, but the whole thing is a bit long and loses its way. Great end...worth watching just for Cranston
I enjoyed it but, like with most of these crime dramas where you’re on the criminal’s side, I just got bored because things never change enough to stay interesting.
The worst fail IMO is when Walter crashes his new car just because the writers decided we didn’t think he was desperate enough yet.

In March 2013 - I broke my arm in a cycling accident - my 6 weeks convalescence were spent watching BB - having stayed away from it due to my dislike of BC & AP as actors - I finally succumbed - BB is like Alice falling down the rabbit hole of the drugs world & marrying whom we once were with what we have become - the internal struggle - the choices we make that affect those about us - definitely launched the careers of many a drug dealer

Never actually even finished it. Couldn't be bothered and didn't feel a drive. Some aspects i liked a lot and some details i thought were very smart.
Unpopular opinion.. Didn't think it deserved all the hype it got though
