The best show on television (and ever, in many people’s opinion) has returned and aired the first two episodes of its eight episode summer run. Not surprisingly, so far it has been absolutely brilliant.
Sadly, not all summer TV is.
Without going into spoiler territory, the season premiere began with a mind-boggling ominous flash-forward, before picking up exactly where it left off after season four’s explosively epic ending.
Creator Vince Gilligan and his cast and crew are not only at the top of their game, they’re also blazing their way into TV history by creating incredible drama in every scene that airs. I’m not kidding, this show is so good it can make a cold open about a schlubby German guy eating tater tots awesome.
Who knew it was possible to make chewing riveting?
The new season of Breaking Bad airs Sundays at 10pm on AMC.
