This New on Netflix Instant Streaming is a bit different than our previous '5 movies per post' standard but Breaking Bad gets special treatment. Once you start watching, you'll know why. Expect another, "standard," New on Netflix post early next week!
Creator: Vince Gilligan (The X-Files, Hancock)
Starring: Bryan Cranston (Malcom in the Middle), Anna Gunn (Enemy of the State, Red State), Aaron Paul (Mission: Impossible 3, Van Wilder)
Genre: Drama, Crime
Episodes: 33 (Current Season not on Netflix Instant)
Why You Should Watch It:
Admittedly I have not seen every episode of Breaking Bad, (which is why I'm so fucking excited for this) but from what I remember from the first season, and the few random episodes I've seen, this show is top-notch. That acting is incredible, which is why Bryan Cranston has won the Emmy for "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series" three years in a row and Aaron Paul won "Supporting Actor in a Drama Series" this past year. The writing and story-line is just as impressive. Who wouldn't think a former chemistry high school teacher recently diagnosed with cancer turned drug chemist/seller would make for a great TV show? I wouldn't want to meet the person who doesn't. It is one of the most critically aclaimed shows of the past decade and I'm sure anything you have heard about it already is just as gushing as this write up. So do exactly like me and start watching right....now!
