Eye opener
23 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

A crying shame there aren't even English subtitles for this excellent series. Be the way, it gets really good in the second season.

Part, I repeat part of the brutality and corruption of the DDR regime is revealed in this high class soap opera. But love triumphs in the end, and some pretty creepy people redeem themselves. But rest assured, the excesses were intrinsic in the structure that was the artificial hothouse of East Germany. Who built this hothouse is not the subject of the series, and the two mainly responsible powers are not even mentioned.

Annoying, for me, is the piling up of contrived crises in the first season, but that's how the public generally wants it. In this respect "Breaking Bad" is no different.
