It thickens so much. It’s so goddamn thick. Like chunky peanut butter.

Breaking Bad has left me shaken.

Bad Decisions
by Chuck Klosterman 

Klosterman explains on Grantland why ‘Breaking Bad’ might be the best television series ever, topping acclaimed and revered series like ‘The Wire’, ‘The Sopranos’, and ‘Mad Men’:

In that same Newsweek article, the writer suggests Walter White’s on-going metamorphosis is what makes Breaking Bad great. But that doesn’t go far enough. It’s not just that watching White’s transformation is interesting; what’s interesting is that this transformation involves the fundamental core of who he supposedly is, and that this (wholly constructed) core is an extension of his own free will. The difference between White in the middle of Season 1 and White in the debut of Season 4 is not the product of his era or his upbringing or his social environment. It’s a product of his own consciousness. He changed himself. At some point, he decided to become bad, and that’s what matters. [read more]


A.V. Club interview with Bryan Cranston
by Will Harris
 

 

AVC: When I visited the Breaking Bad set in March, Giancarlo Esposito [Gus] said that after he read the script for the season première, he had to set it down and walk away because he was stunned and shaken. What was your reaction? 

BC: It was shocking. What’s great about well-written material is, if you can shock with justifiable actions, that’s the best. You can shock anybody at any time on television, but if it’s out of left field, if you’ve got a situation where it’s, like, “Oh, well, you know, he’s a crazy man, so he just goes and kills people,” that’s weak writing to me. As I was reading the season première, it was certainly shocking, and I was going, “Oh my God, oh my God. But, wait, why would…?” But then I realized, “No, that’s justifiable,” and after that, I just went, “Wow, what a way to put paddles on the heart of the audience and jump-start their season!” [read more]

 

Review: AMC’s ‘Breaking Bad’ still brilliant in season 4
by Alan Sepinwall 

A review from the godfather of modern television discussion. Mulls over season 3 in detail, setting up the background for season 4. 

"Breaking Bad" is about the rot that takes place in Walt’s soul as he goes deeper into the criminal world, but it’s also about the corrosive effect he has on those around him. He wrecked his marriage, turned Jesse from a casual dealer into a hardcore criminal and is responsible for Hank getting shot and paralyzed and so many deaths that I’ve lost count. Magnificent as Cranston is, as riveting a character was Walt is, it’s important to truly understand the people he’s hurting, to feel the weight of his actions. [read more]

Anyone who knows me knows how much I adore this show. With the season premiere only days away, it’s good to field some perspective on what makes the show so great. Enjoy. And don’t miss the season premiere on Sunday. I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
