The second season of Breaking Bad makes it obvious through the writing that the producers of the series have done their research in the matters that define the series. The end result is a truly remarkable show, that is able to appeal to a wide range of audience.
After watching the first season of Breaking Bad, it is almost impossible to point out any flaws in this show, as it is just so well polished.
