Paper or Plastic?,
This review is from: Breaking Bad (Amazon Instant Video)
I don't follow a lot of tv shows as my life is busy enough as it is. That being said, I was intrigued enough by what I read in the sunday paper that I stayed up past my bedtime to catch the premier episode. I am also a fan of Brian Cranston from his earlier work on Malcolm in the Middle. I enjoyed the show immensely, and am glad I stayed up for it. Having recently turned 50 myself (as Cranston does in the first episode), the show touched on a number of issues I can relate to. His transformation from hard working, underpaid father to crystal meth artist will be interesting to watch, as will how he deals with his own moral dilemnas.
"I'm awake" he responds, when asked by his new drug partner why he was doing this (making meth). I guess that I will be awake as well, every sunday night to watch how this every day man continues to deal with his epiphany, his awakening. His mortality....
