A Black Comedy..
11 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Walt and Jesse deals with Tuco. They produce huge quantities for him, but soon they run out of raw material needed for meth. Walt comes up with an idea that consists a heist on a warehouse.

Meanwhile Skyler learns a secret about her sister.

I really loved it. It has lots of black comedy. And this show has a some kind of cliché: every time Walt and Jesse stuck, Walt comes up with brilliantly but confusing scientific solution, and Jesse mocks him with basic statements. This gag is used sometimes and I really laugh at that scenes. The scene with thermite is an example of this.

To review season 1, It has a very interesting story arc, very good character depth and acting. I don't want to say more about acting, because Bryan Carston's Emmy award as Walt really sums up everything. I hope season 2 is as good as like this.

My vote is 10/10.
