• Goodman also includes Breaking Bad in his list of the Top 10 TV shows of 2009, explaining that “few series on television have rocketed to bona fide greatness as quick as this one.”

Vogue magazine singles out Aaron Paul in its feature on the new generation of talent, calling his Breaking Bad character “the talented, sensitive mess who proceeds by self-destruction and wins our hearts.”
