Breaking Bad Season 5

All good things come to an end and what a #BreakingBadMarathon it was. I’m not happy it is finished but at the same time I feel empty yet satisfied with the ending.

As we know Walt has taken things in his own hand and the guy plans everything all too well. He has a group of dangerous hillbillies working for him. He accomplishes it all but it all comes with a price.

I’m not going to spoil things for you but I think the second half of the season was just superb. The first half was a bit boring. There was a kind of uncomfortable sadness around and the characters were thrown into situations. Some characters die too (not gonna name which ones). There was one death which was pretty sad and emotional. Can you guess which one? I’m sure you can.

The end episodes and the follow up episodes are amazing. I mean just imagine the tension building up through the four seasons and the whole tension has to release and in result you get the last 4 amazing episodes. Worth the watch.

I still like the first two seasons of this drama. The character development is great. The last seasons (especially the 5th)is very dark in tone and I don’t like that but the great acting and storyline backs it up making it one of the greatest shows in this time. And it got an award too.

Overall I would give this drama 9 out of 10 and I would not recommend this to everyone. Personally, I don’t take drugs so some parts were pretty disturbing for me especially the Jesse and Jane part where they use needles. Also there are murders happening ruthlessly and it is very very disturbing. So hold your hearts.

Lastly I would like to tell you my top 3 favorite scenes in the entire series. I did a lot of thinking on what makes a favorite scene in my taste. I think I like the suspense factor more and base my favourites on that usually. 2 out of 3 below are based on suspense.

At number 3 it is when Holly comes in the world. Holly is the daughter of Walt and Skyler and when Skyler goes into labour, Walt is busy securing a million dollar deal which he has to get it in one hour. He gets a phone call from Skyler at the same time and he just sits down holding his head in one head saying no no no. That was a good bit.

At 2, we have this disturbing scene of the guy who is neck chained to a pole with a bike lock. Walt was meant to kill him but he couldn’t. They talk to each other for a long time (a big chunk of the episode). And then Walt had to kill him by pulling the lock back and choking him. I find all that build up between them then suddenly Walt killing him very disturbing.

Finally at number 1, the RIP RV episode was my favourite. I don’t want to spoil this one because it is just so good. There is a lot of suspense here and it makes you jump up to the edge of your seat then back. Makes you forget your breath also.

That’s it for me. Next year they are releasing a Breaking Bad spinoff and it is called Better Call Saul. It will be a comedy prequel kind of thing and will feature more of our favourite Saul Goodman. Please leave a comment down below. I would appreciate it.
