My wife and I started watching this show when it debuted but something happened(ai don't remember exactly but life intervened) and we stopped watching.
Well, on my brothers orders I started Netflixing it last weekend and now I remember what an amazing show it is. Holy shit, it may very well be the best drama in the history of television.
It's somewhat strange for me to watch because Bryan Cranston played Hal in my favorite sitcom of all time, Malcolm in the Middle. I loved him in that show and it's somewhat weird to see him in this role, but I completely buy into him as Walt "the Chemist" which just speaks to his immense talent as an actor.
I honestly believe Bryan Cranston is up there with Pitt, DeCaprio, and Daniel Day Lewis as one of the finest actors in the world and his role as Walt just strengthens my position. He is an amazing actor and this show is "art" at it's very best.
