10 Kingpins outta 10::::::::::

(-)Why is the new strategy to get you hooked on a TV show, or purchases thereof, and then split the purchasing in two for the final seasons of something. I hate that, and has gotten me NOT to buy several iterations of TV shows on DVD or BluRay. I hate being toyed with, financially. Like a drug dealer that gives FREE tastes of drugs and then the horror pricing hits you after addiction.
(+)OK, enough on the negative, great TV show from AMC. The subject matter is dark, whether dark drama or dark humor. Not everyone is going to find this a diamond in the rough, but maybe just a zircon diamond. I think it is wonderful either way. People thrown in to desperate circumstances, which only makes the desperation more dire by their actions. Lies upon more lies, and illegal doings, by a mild mannered family-man school teacher devolving into a hellish world. Bryan Cranston and others won several awards during this shows run, and deservedly so.
This is the first of a volumes 1-2 with 8 episodes, and a final 8 episodes follow later. The show has one of the best endings ever, because it crosses all the T's and dots all the I's for a complete ending scenario. So buy this and the follow up 8 episodes. Great TV!! BUT don't look for puppies or hugs and kisses here.
