Goodbye To “Breaking Bad”

Tonight the world said goodbye to “Breaking Bad”, a television drama that was really like no other that I had ever seen before and while I have watched the series finale, I will not be spoiling it for you folks who are still catching up to the show via Netflix or have the final go round on your DVR. Instead I decided to post a photo of the Mezco Toys “Heisenberg” figure. He is aka Walter White the shows main protagonist and he was masterfully played by Bryan Cranston. I saw this figure at this years Toy Fair.


For those hiding under a rock, “Breaking Bad” tells the story of Walter White (played to perfection by Bryan Cranston). A high school chemistry teacher that is dying of cancer and through strange circumstances becomes a methamphetamine drug cook. From here the ride speeds up and seldom slows down as a good man becomes a very, very bad one. My friends Skeleton Pete and Sea Pete were both watching this program from the beginning and suggested that I watch but I did not get around to it until very recently. Once it became available on Netflix I did my best to catch up in order to watch the end as it aired. I figured why not since I had no concert to attend and wanted to avoid any spoilers. I will say that the show kept my interest from the very first episode and throughout each subsequent season. That is not something you find being the case with so many shows. I applaud the creator Vince Gilligan for crafting such a storyline. It’s a shame that it has ended and “Wow” what an ending it was. Hopefully no one will spoil it for you.

The entire series is available on DVD so if you are one of those folks who like to get the series boxed sets I have embedded links for you to do so below on Do give it a watch.
