Breaking Bad

In all my years of watching American TV, Breaking Bad is absolutely the best. The Sopranos, The Wire, The Shield, Six Feet Under, Dragnet, Miami Vice, Streets of San Francisco – all pale in the face of this pure entertainment.

In many ways this series runs a parallel to Danish crime series ‘Forbrydelsen’, a stunning crime story with a cerebral story line. Not all of the typical action, boom-boom ’em crud of many US cop dramas. The TV series, “The Killing,” set in Seattle comes close. It was, in fact, inspired by Forbrydelsen.
Many viewers hope that future American crime series will take the hint here and give us some stories with intellectual heft, not silly adolescent car chases.
