“ The best TV series of all time. The writing, direction, casting and the setting were exemplary and the acting by Bryan Cranston was the pinnacle of perfection. With its explosive twists, intelligent writing, hauntingly beautiful landscapes, exquisite music, a thought provoking storyline, a compelling central character and a magnificent supporting cast, this is one of the best works of fiction, period. On par and in some ways even better than say Pulp Fiction, Harry Potter Macbeth Casablanca, Hamlet, Citizen Kane, Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Knight, Lord of The Rings etc ” - os_rox

“ Wow, just wow. Not since breaking bad has a show managed to enthrall me as such, visually engrossing in a certain macabre and visceral manner, augmented greatly by a haunting score. But the thing that truly elevated this show to masterpiece status was its writing, more than anything this show was a triumph of writing over spectacle. It is a testament to the power of storytelling that a tale as cliche as this one (cops with contrasting personalities hunt down killer) managed to be refreshing, captivating and groundbreaking. Characterized by some of the best dialogue to ever grace the small screen and such beautifully written and exquisitely acted characters, that once their arc finally comes to an end you are left drained, exhausted yet satisfied. With the juxtaposition thematically heavy storytelling with moments of heart pounding and disgustingly satisfying spectacle you find yourself constantly revisiting the show not just through the act of watching it, but also by pondering upon the philosophical quandaries that the show raises. Kudos to everyone involved with this show.
