In the hands of creator Vince Gilligan (The X-Files), Bad's first season plays like the improbable offspring of Weeds and The Shield. With nothing left to lose, the Albuquerque 50-year-old uses his death sentence as a catalyst to break every rule he's ever followed while keeping his family--including Skyler's radiologist sister, Marie (Betsy Brandt), and her DEA agent husband, Hank (Dean Norris)--out of the loop. Throughout these seven episodes, Walt takes on a hostage, a dead body, and a partner who likes to sample his own product. Based on the description alone, the program shouldn't work as well as it does, except Gilligan and company keep the situations psychologically believable and Emmy winner Cranston makes Walt surprisingly sympathetic as he swings between compassion and self-interest. As he tells his students, "Chemistry is the study of change," a statement that applies equally well to the show, since Walt ends up in a very different place than the one he began. This three-disc set comes complete with cast and crew commentary, an installment of AMC's Shootout, two featurettes, deleted scenes, and screen tests. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

This DVD set is SD but it... Read More

watch parks & recreation. it's brilliant, and if you love the office, you'll for sure love parks as it's made by the people who made the office.
the first season starts off a bit slow (it's only like 6 episodes anyway), but the second season is AMAZING.

Alejandro: I don't think so. The Region 1 Breaking Bad First Season boxset does *not* specify English subtitles. Actually, NONE of the B.B Seasons 1-3 on DVD list English subtitles.
So, I didn't buy any of them. I've learned my lesson. If the box doesn't specify certain subtitles, I'm not taking... Read More

Great first show of the season.... how many shows are we getting this time? A full dozen or more? Season 1 was cut short due to that writer's strike. Watch the stuff on AMC's BB website. There is some good stuff on there. I love this show.
