Synopsis:
Walt (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse (Aaron Paul) are in way over their heads in Breaking Bad: The Complete Second Season. As their partnership reaches new heights, Walt and Jesse begin to see the extremes of the drug trafficking business. Their trademark blue meth is making them rich, but it's getting more difficult than ever for Walt to conceal the truth from his wife Skyler (Anna Gunn), his son Walter Jr. (RJ Mitte), and his DEA agent brother-in-law Hank (Dean Norris).
Walt struggles to maintain control of his life as he contends with vicious drug dealers, an increasingly distant wife and son, the impending birth of his daughter, and a strung-out business partner ~ all while battling terminal lung cancer.

Yet more great, compelling TV - Breaking Bad: Series 2 review by RP

Spoiler Alert
07/02/2014

Continuing the (mis)adventures of mild mannered high school chemistry teacher Walter White. Season 2 of 'Breaking Bad' stars where Season 1 leaves off - you really do need to watch Season 1 first as they're definitely not standalone.

This is great TV: I waited as the set of discs arrived separately in the post, eager to watch the next episodes - but I guess this is the downside of a rental service :(

The medical costs of treating his lung cancer lead Walter into 'cooking' more crystal meth and into even greater dependence on his dropout addict drug-dealer partner. But this secret double life causes an ever-increasing web of lies that leads his wife to suspect that all is not well with Walt and inevitably leads to a breakdown in trust.

There are a number of threads to the storyline but the major effects of all these are:

- Walt's lies becoming over-complex

- the need to sell drugs to pay for Walt's medical treatment

- Walt becoming more assertive and significantly less mild mannered

Walt is played by Bryan Cranston who is excellent in the role - his face is by turn expressive or deadpan as the situation demands. The other characters are well played and by now seem to have settled well into their roles within the storyline, which is tightly controlled even though episodes have different directors.

Despite the criminal activities that are committed and the semi-random violence that occurs, there are always items of black humour throughout. Perhaps the standout one is the head on the tortoise - you'll know it when you see it :)

Excellent stuff - 5/5 stars again. And yes, I will order up Season 3.

[Aside: the cost of Walt's medical treatment given that he was not covered by medical insurance made me feel extremely grateful for the NHS]

Just superb TV drama - full of twists and so entertaining - Breaking Bad: Series 2 review by PV

Spoiler Alert
14/08/2017

I was late coming to Breaking Bad but I am SO glad I got out the DVDs.

I have to say that probably the first series is my favourite - I prefer the longer episodes and not 13 x 45 minute segments.

Having said that, this 2nd series is also good.

Not sure how long the series can keep this up without 'jumping the shark'.

But better than ANY drama on British TV especially the BBC who churns out lazy remakes and soapy drama to appeal to older women and therefore get ratings.

Good stuff.
