DVD Review: Breaking Bad The Final Season
I’m not going to start this review by going on about how great Breaking Bad has been, because if you’re reading this review, you should already know that! But this is the final season of Breaking Bad, and final seasons can be pretty hit and miss, so what does Walter White get up to in the last eight episodes of the shows life?
The final season starts off with a glimpse into the future, a disguised Walter pulls up to a run-down, fenced off version of his house. Vandalised and empty, the house is nothing but an empty shell of lost memories. He grabs a crow bar from his boot, a boot that contains a pretty big kick arse gun and a lot of ammo. This is serious times for Walter. Breaking into his home he goes to the electrical socket and and recovers the ricin he left there.
What he’s up to is anyone’s guess, but Walter finally looks like a man who has nothing left to loose.
And it’s a possibility, because Hank has realised that the person he’s been trying to catch, was living in plain sight. Of course telling the DEA that his brother-in-law is the one he and they have been hunting for, isn’t exactly the career enhancement he’s been hoping for. But the gloves come off anyway, and soon it’s every man for himself.
With Walter trying to tie up loose ends and figure a way out, Lydia pops back up wanting Walter to cook again, and with the DEA sniffing around, Skler has to be worrying about her future.
It’s pretty much like a freight train with no breaks. Once this final season starts rolling, it just keeps getting faster and faster towards an end that can only be messy.
Despite the analogy I’ve just used, the whole find just flows well, nothing is forced or contrived and the series ends with a multitude of bangs and not a whimper in sight.
