Breaking Bad - Season 3, Episode 1 Review

Nothing else on television comes closer to approximating the unsettling feeling of a Coen brothers movie than "Breaking Bad," which returns for its third season at a deliberate pace that would be death for most shows yet which simply makes this one more absorbing. Bryan Cranston has rightfully collected awards for his portrayal of a cancer-stricken teacher who desperately begins cooking crystal meth to provide for his family, leading down a veritable yellow-brick road of unsavory characters and questionable moral choices. The unforeseen twists in that road continue qualifying "Bad" as one of TV's best dramas.

For those who skipped season two but might want to catch up at some point, go away. OK, now we can talk.

A tightly wound testament to regret and roads not taken, Walter White (Cranston, who also directed the season premiere) has done some very bad things in the name of amassing a nest egg for wife Skyler (Anna Gunn) and their two kids. But his constant deception to hide that double life has caught up with him, and she's booted him out of the house.
