Monday I criticized RESCUE ME for its failure to find new stories or at least its failure to tell that one story well. The writers have the opportunity to present the story of fire-fighters who died or were affected by 9-11 but instead we spend season after season watching one guy drink. And he just ain't that interesting.
BREAKING BAD is a show that gets it right. It manages to be scary, compelling, sad and truthful every week. The acting and atmosphere are extraordinary. And Walt White (Bryan Cranston) shares the screen with other characters who have stories too. There is so little slack in each episode, I am breathless by the end.
