5-sentence review of Breaking Bad Season 5 premier

Season 5, Episode 1: “Live Free or Die”

5. Walter White (Bryan Cranston) is what happens when talented and gifted students aren’t challenged enough.

4. Four seasons ago, Walt was a chemistry teacher in a shaky marriage who gets diagnosed with cancer.

3. Now he’s a mass-murdering, meth-making mad scientist who gins up a super magnet to wipe out evidence he worked for the late Gus (Giancarlo Esposito).

2. All this guy needed was some affection from his wife and a little respect at the office.

1. Now the dude is a fearsome villain who is more Darth Vader or Michael Corleone than some goofball teacher making meth in his underwear, which is a shame for morality but it is damned fine television.

Your takes.
