We Finally finished watching all four seasons of the TV series Breaking Bad. It is some excellent story-telling! I like it because the plot is smart, unpredictable, and totally exceeds the audience’s expectations. The characters are well-developed and complex, no one is simply“good”or “bad.” There is a fine line between what is right and wrong; and the show keeps pushing (successfully) that line further to test the audience’s limit.
I love the “Gus” character, who is known as a successful businessman but also running a large-scale meth production-distribution operation. Brilliantly portrayed. There is a scene in season 4 in which he is poisoned, he goes into the bathroom, takes off his jacket, carefully folds it, takes off his glasses and ties, neatly places them, before he kneels in front of the toilet to puke. Wow, very cool and impressive!
