TV on DVD Review: Breaking Bad: The Complete Second Season (2009)

I don't know if I could love a show more. The first season was great, but it keeps getting better. The second season of the show about a high school teacher turned meth dealer adds so much to its story. Walter White is really getting out of control. I know you thought he was already screwed up, but he makes things worse at every turn.

Buy Breaking Bad: The Complete Second Season [Blu-ray] or DVD

Walt and Jesse take major steps in this season. They get involved with big bad distributors, and that isn't ever good.Meanwhile, Walt's brother-in-law, DEA Agent Hank is dealing with his own issues, and he's getting seemingly closer to Walt's operation. Now we add Bob Odenkirk to the mix as the kind of lawyer you see in TV commercials. He starts out looking silly, but he takes one hell of a dark turn.

The second season is full of exciting things. Walt's divide with his family grows, and he becomes more and more out of touch with his own reality. Jesse starts to unravel too, and there's one hell of a moment between them when I couldn't decide if Walt was a huge douche or the best friend a guy could ask for. You'll know it when you see it. I'll admit, I lean toward the latter.

If you like insanity wrapped up in one hour increments, you must watch this show. I'm dying to start season three.
