Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season Blu-ray

Posted April 1, 2013 05:17 PM by Webmaster

Sony PicturesSony Pictures Home Entertainment has officially announced and detailed the Blu-ray release of Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season. The next stage in Walter White's transformation from high school chemistry teacher to full-blown, ruthless drug lord streets on June 4th.

Synopsis: Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul return in their Emmy-winning roles of meth cooks Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in the fifth explosive season of Breaking Bad. With Walter's most dangerous enemy out of the picture, Walt's evolution from a well-meaning family man to a ruthless drug kingpin is nearly complete. Forming a partnership with Jesse and Mike (Jonathan Banks), Walt proceeds to make a killing until the fruits of his murderous schemes are threatened by a new development in the investigation led by his brother-in-law, Hank (Dean Norris). Season Five also stars Anna Gunn (TV's Deadwood), Betsy Brandt (Magic Mike), RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, and Jonathan Banks (Identity Thief). It was created by showrunner Vince Gilligan (TV's The X-Files), who also served as executive producer with Academy Award-winner Mark Johnson (Rain Man) and Michelle MacLaren (The X-Files).

The Fifth Season Blu-ray also features an eight-minute, uncensored bonus scene, "Chicks 'N' Guns," written and produced exclusively for the latest season's home entertainment release. Starring Aaron Paul, Bob Odenkirk and Charles Baker (Splinter), the scene tells the pivotal back story to episode eight, "Gliding Over All." Gilligan says, "the extra scene we created exclusively for the Blu-ray and DVD proves just how much the relationship between Jesse and Walt has drastically changed over the past five seasons of Breaking Bad. [It's] an original idea that presents fans with a pivotal missing moment during episode 508. Writers Jenn Carroll and Gordon Smith, and Director Michelle MacLaren, did a fantastic job bringing it to life, and I think fans will love it."

Breaking Bad: The Fifth Season arrives via a 3-disc set and includes the following extras:
    Blu-ray Exclusive Special Features

    • Scene by Scene: Directors Discuss Memorable Moments
    • The Writers of Breaking Bad

    Additional Special Features

It clearly reads, "The Complete Fifth Season" ergo it will all the rest of this season which has not aired yet. I just checked the AMC website and the promo says, "returns Summer 2013" and they advertise the Blu set as dropping June 4th. Perhaps they'll show an episode of two before the Blu drops.

Or this could just be an April Fool's joke

AMC's website lists it as ONLY the first 8 episodes of season five, NOT the complete fifth season.

"Breaking Bad - The Fifth Season Arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray June 4April 1, 2013
The sets feature the first eight episodes of Season 5 plus a new scene written and produced exclusively for the DVD and Blu-Ray"

awfully pricey for just 8 episodes if you ask me

I'm holding out for the box set, hopefully it's released soon after it's ended. Can't wait for the final 8 episodes!

The most I have ever paid for a FULL season on Blu was $35 dollars. Since this is only 8 episodes, it better not be more then $20 on release day. If AMC thinks this show is good enough to charge full price for only 8 episodes, then they are smoking crack!

Same MSRP ($65.99) as season four, yet it contains five fewer episodes. The Whole split season thing sucks all around.

As much as I love BB, I'll definitely be holding out for a complete fifth season boxset. I'm not paying full price for half a season.

It seems as though this will be considered season 5 and the next season will be season 6? Oh well.... Either way, I'll be buying this set

I think I'll just wait for the series to wrap up to buy the complete series boxset and save some money. Hell, they may even have new special features you couldn't get with the individual seasons, so yeah, I'll hold out...

Yeah, never quite understood where they get off charging so much for so little. Even the first season of Walking Dead (6 episodes, less than 1 hour each) went for full season price when it hit bluray. So here we get half of the final season of Breaking Bad for the price of a whole final season. So what, they can charge us full price twice? Like Harry Potter part 1 and 2. Or Twilight part 1 and 2. Stop breaking things up and trying to charge us twice for everything. We know you are greedy, but come on. Ugh.

Beware, they may not even release a complete fifth season set. I might just release part 2 next year. So, you may be waiting for nothing.

The fact they have called this 'The Fifth Season' and not 'The Complete Fifth Season' (when all the other seasons had the world 'Complete' in there I think means they will call the next one the 'Final Season' or 'The Fifth Season - Part 2', rather than the 'Sixth Season'. I highly doubt they'll release it as one full season, but hopefully there'll be a Complete Series boxset, which is what I'll be getting.
