Breaking Bad review + Coming Soon on Netflix

This time last year I started watching the first two episodes of the first season of Breaking Bad, I wanted to see what all the hype was about. Binge watching Netflix shows seemed to be the new big thing and Breaking Bad was one of these hot shows, those first episodes that I watched didn't exactly excite me so I didn't bother to watch the rest...Until very recently and I've finished the entire show.
The overall premise of the show; cooking meth, didn't appeal to me so I think that's why I stopped watching the first two episodes. But when I did continue watching it became more than just a show about drugs and more about how as humans we'll do anything to look after those who are closest to us. Walts battle with cancer, cooking meth and lying to his family became exciting and you're left wondering what happens next after every episode. Walt and Jesse' relationship is lovely at times, a father and son sort of bond. Everything is just so complicated but you can't help but carry on and watch. 

Favourite quote:
"Walter White: Now, say my name.
Declan: [quietly] Heisenberg.
Walter White: You're goddamn right."

Out of all 5 seasons my favourites were the last 2. They were so exciting and all of the loose ends are starting to be tied up. I didn't know what to expect from the finale, I had hoped that Walt would somehow not get caught. Without giving too much away, I think the ending was unexpected, I didn't see Walt bowing out like that but I suppose it was inevitable. In terms of Breaking Bad making a comeback in the future, it would be possible, as one of the main characters is still alive. There's also a chance that both Walt and Jesse could reprise their roles in spinoff show Better Call Saul

So I have really enjoyed watching Breaking Bad, I'm sad it's over but I'm excited to start watching new things now and I've already started watching Better Call Saul.

Coming Soon...

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 2 will air on Friday 15th April in the UK.
Orange is the New Black: Season 4 will air on 17th June.
