When Breaking Bad finally wrapped, it seemed unlikely that we were going to see a show as good again for a long time.
And then, here comes a prequel/spinoff which somehow manages to not only surpass it, but to actively improve and build on the original series.
It’s remarkable. Even knowing full-well where things are going, BCS manages to wring an incredible amount of tension and character growth out of every moment of screen time.
It’s superbly shot, brilliantly acted, and up there among the best written and directed shows of all time.
Even if you’ve never seen Breaking Bad, this is an absolute must watch.
Highly, highly recommended.
