Here We Go! Finally, We're Back to 'Breaking Bad' on AMC

Gus is gone.  Yeah they done blew up Gustavo Fring, the cold faced character played by the incredible most under-rated and under-used Giancarlo Esposito during last season’s run of AMC’s Breaking Bad.  Blew my boy up, half his face torn away by a bomb that ended the final episode of Breaking Bad and the new season that starts tonight on Breaking Bad will have to do a whole hell of a lot to do to beat last season.

Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) - 'Breaking Bad' - Season 5 on AMC

Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) - 'Breaking Bad' - Season 5 on AMC

Last season on Breaking Bad was one of the best on cable television’s arc of dramas that include a whole lot of great dramas.  Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are on a roll.  A new roll as Sunday night premieres the fifth season of Breaking Bad and there’s not one fan of the show that hasn’t said “thank God” the series has returned. 


What will this new season bring?  We don’t know but most of us can’t say we don’t care.  Walter White played by the incredicbly engaging Bryan Cranston is the chemistry teacher that begins his ongoing personal drug cartel by cooking meth and making millions of dollars for himself and his partner Jesse Pinkman portrayed by the also incredible Aaron Paul who acts as his assistant in cooking the highly addictive drug.

But now what will happen?  Walter is the one who poisoned the son of Jesse’s girlfriend and will Jesse find out?   If he does will Jesse react or overeact?   

This is it for Breaking Bad on AMC.  The last 16 episodes starts tonight and we will all be looking forward to how this solid drama end.

Let the cooking begin!
