  • Soak in the visuals, listen to the mesmerizing use of sound. The writing and acting will lure you in, but have appreciation for all the details that go into making this series so great. Show More

  • IF tomorrow's second- season premiere of Breaking Bad is any indication, the show's fans, who've been waiting a year for its return, will be dutifully rewarded for their patience. And if, like me, you didn't watch Breaking Bad last season, tomorrow's episode will suck you right into the weird, horrific, off-kilter world of Walter White. Show More

  • In season 3, the show perfected its approach to good old-fashioned suspense, added some terrific characters to its great core cast and its queasy moral quandaries became ever more compelling and addictive. At this point, it's just not possible to look away. Show More
