I didn't know much about Crystal Meth before i watched this series! All i knew was that it was another name for Speed! So after watching the series, i thought i would read up on Crystal Meth and see what type of effects it has had on people throughout the years. I am saddened by what this drug has caused many people to do, risk, lose. It really is saddening.
Not only is the effects of Meth on people and the way they are affected a serious subject, so is the number of people dying from Cancer, esp Lung cancer, not from just smoke inhalation.
So that is why we need humour to lift up the sadness of these two taboo subjects. We raise awareness of cancer. We help those with a drug addiction. But when a series is written so well and acted out so efficiently and provocatively, it not only makes you think but with the added humour makes you realise that you have a life and all you can be in life is happy!
Sorry if the start of this review is too serious. I would like to say how eye opening this series is, how greatly acted, how deep it is, how serious it is yet at the same time humourous. You have to laugh when you are down!
Everyone in this series deserves an award especially Brian. I had seen him in Malcolm in the Middle but that was just silly humour acting but this is dark humour.
I really can't put into words how amazing this show is. I bought directly after buying Dexter and have to say, this comes above it. I can't believe the second season is so expensive!
Aaron Paul is another good actor.
