Bob Odenkirk describes his acting approach to The Daily Beast, saying Bryan Cranston’s “performance is so thorough and intense and complete, I don’t want to look like I’m playing the banjo at Shakey’s.”

• At the close of the TV season, The Salt Lake Tribune says Breaking Bad is “one of the best-written pieces of TV,” while the San Diego Union-Tribune thinks Bryan Cranston is proof that “cable has given actors of a certain range the roles of their lifetimes.”
