The first one of the final eight episodes of Vince Gilligan’s brilliant drama ‘Breaking Bad’ was aired on AMC last night. The previous episode was aired almost a year ago.
Last night episode was a classic one to open the final season. It hinted that Hank, once an insignificant, comic character, is going to play a center role in the coming episodes.
‘Breaking Bad’ has always been a stylized series that focuses on one main story rather than chasing a million stem-like side stories. Now, it seems that the show has been narrowing the focus of its story even more.
After its debut, many casual viewers took it another addition in anti-hero drama. However, over time, the show has become as much a critique as a member in the anti-hero genus. In fact, it is the backstory of a villainous character who makes himself to believe that he is an anti-hero.
