I think i have read something about Breaking Bad on these boards before but this show is so good it deserves another mention.
The second series was amazing, i was in awe of Bryan Cranston performance as subdued Chemistry teacher turned Meth dealer. Most remember this guy as the father from Malcolm in the Middle, even i was a little skeptical if he could get away from the manic crazy character he displayed in Malcolm, but i have to say this guy is just amazing. Cranston seems to turn from super high energy in some scenes to real slow agonising pain in others.
I don't know if this show is a big hit in the States but from the first couple of episodes from the first season i was actually thiniking straight away that Cranston will definitely win awards for his portrayal of cancer stricken chemistry teacher Walt.
I read that he has in fact now won Emmy for best actor in a drama series tow years in a row now for this show (i think it was 2 years for the same show).
Anyway i urge you all to give this show a chance, please don't think its anything like weeds! Just give it a couple of episodes and i am sure most people will enjoy this as much as i have.
One of the best shows i have ever seen!
