Season 5 of BREAKING BAD WILL BE Remembered AS THE SINGLE GREATEST Achievement IN Television HISTORY
29 September 2013 | by amirdbw07See all my reviews

Words can't express how I feel about the final season of the show. Never in my life I have ever watched anything like this. Breaking bad was always great. each season got better from the previous one. After the fourth season when I talked to my friends I would told them that this show is amazing and you're gonna definitely pick up your jaw after some of the episodes. But now after watching the last 15 episodes I simply tell them :" This is going to be the most amazing and unbelievable thing that you ever going to see." But how this show and especially this season deserve such high praises and become so lovable among the fans ? it certainly doesn't have mind blowing special effects and it certainly isn't about zombies or super heroes!! Breaking bad showed how a simple story with the right execution can become something fantastic and the source to all of that is writing, writing and again writing. the show had an amazing crew and cast but without the writers team to back them it might turn out to be another Hollywood movie or show with big names that goes to waste. This show had more memorable moments than all the movies that I have seen till today combine. Breaking bad dropped my jaw more that I can remember. Breaking bad showed how a drama can frighten its audiences literally ,not by gruesome ferocity but by simply by the story itself.

Breaking bad made my time worthwhile for waiting to watch the show year after year. Breaking Bad made me to say many time that "this is how you kill someone, this is how you develop a story, this is how your respect your audience, and finally this is how you create the best goddamn Program in history" This show without a shadow of the doubt will be remembered as the single greatest achievement in TV history. But quite frankly not just TV and compare to movies ? it still is one of best in history. And I want to say that breaking bad was everything that I wanted from a show and it sets the bar so high that no one probably will reach it. Thank you Dave Porter for the the beautiful soundtrack, Thank you Micheal Slovis for your amazing cinematography, Thank you Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul,Dean Norris and the whole cast and finally Thank you Vince Gilligan and writing team for making breaking bad so damn good. After Tonight i'm sure Heisenberg, We will truly REMEMBER YOUR NAME.
