Is Breaking Bad really that good

Is Breaking Bad Really That Good?

  • Hello dear community

    I keep hearing about how good Breaking Bad is, the show is also one of the top rated all-time on IMDB. However, I've just watched the first episode on XXXXX and I'm not entirely sure if that's my thing. What do you think of the series? Does it start a little slower and get exciting later or is it just not for me?

    I would be very happy about your answers

  • I think so. Yes starts a little slowly, but later picks up speed really well. I expected more from the prequel "Better Call Saul".

  • Hi,
    I felt the same way at first.
    When the series was up to date and new and everyone was talking about it and celebrating it, I tended to ignore it and came to the conclusion that it was weird flat shit * when lonely teachers suddenly become meth cooks ...
    When I was sick a few months ago, I gave the series a chance and got stuck with it. The characters are extremely well scripted, the story remains exciting, complex and unpredictable. The link to the lawyer Saul and the resulting series is also totally great.
  • It is of course clear that you have to find your way into a series first. Sometimes I also have a hard time with new series. For example, I also have my problems with GoT and now it is one of my all-time favorite series. I felt the same way with Breaking Bad. It started ok, but then it got more and more exciting and I really liked it. I also like to recommend her again and again and count her among the few series that stayed great until the end. The tension alone in the second half of the last season is almost unbroken and just once!
  • I guess I'm one of those aliens who haven't seen the series. A year or so ago I gave myself the first episode - I thought it was mediocre, but I just watched it without concentrating. But now I thought again, maybe to try again, and if I read this like that, I'll get even more excited. So maybe really over the holidays
  • So I've never enjoyed watching the series ...
    It's damn hard to take a person for who they are when they are different from what they are.
  • I watched Breaking Bad when it was brand new. I thought the series was great and completely successful. In the meantime I've watched it a second time, with a few years apart. This time I still thought BB was good, but no longer universally great.

    I also enjoyed watching GoT. I was pretty convinced of the first few seasons, but with increasing duration the plot holes got bigger and bigger and with the last season I was anything but happy. By the end of BB I am more or less pure. That something was applied very thickly fits the style of the series.
  • Well, for me the series mentioned is one of the best I've seen

  • Together with Game Of Thrones one of the best series. Exciting, tragic and sometimes very funny. Should I look at myself again.

    I found the books a whole lot better, especially towards the end, the IMO series, I say exaggerated, screwed up.

    And what has changed that you no longer like her today?
