Google translate "Breaking Bad" to Dutch and what do you get?...."Breaking Bad" !!!
28 July 2016 | by KissEnglishPastoSee all my reviews

......................................................from Pasto,Colombia...Via: L.A. CA., CALI, COLOMBIA and ORLANDO, FL

Honestly. I did exactly that and "Breaking Bad" is exactly what I got! Which really goes to show you….It just DOESN'T translate! HOOP tries to put some fresh spin on the basic concept, I must admit, and, at times, the production offers up some interesting contrasts…But a fresh CONCEPT, of course, would have been infinitely better!

Prison psychiatrist Fokke Agustinus (Marcel Hensema) seems to have his hands full with some rather disturbed patients. He apparently, more often than not, is at odds with the Prison Administration as to the best way to deal with many of his volatile and unpredictable wards. Agustinus' world begins to implode on two fronts. His wife, Machteld (Kim van Kooten) has grown distant from her workaholic husband and has the hots, big time, for her Yoga instructor. Also, his long estranged father passes, leaving him a farm, which slowly begins to show indications of some rather bizarre activities going on there.

In a seismic life shift, Agustinus is asked to take a vacation from his job and reacts by throwing in the towel and quitting. He also decides the family should wipe the slate clean and get a fresh start by moving to the farm! This move sets in motion a slippery slope downward spiral chain of events that I feel too many viewers will find, in general, just a bit too predictable. From a socio-cultural vantage point, the Dutch appear to be pretty much intent on following the rules and doing the right thing. Agustinus and his family seem to lack a default setting for when they encounter the "Dark Side" world constructed and left behind by the deceased father.

7*...ENJOY!/DISFRUTELA!
