Breaking Bad ended its run less than two months ago, but if you’re already eager to relive Walt’s journey from Mr. Chips to Scarface, the Breaking Bad: The Complete Series collector’s set is due out next week. And today, to show you just what’s inside, series creator Vince Gilligan has taped an unboxing video.
(Mild late season 5 spoiler coming up…) Though the case that the discs come in is an “absolutely nuts-on perfect recreation” of the money barrel that Walt buried at To’hajiilee, it does not, sadly, contain millions of dollars in cold hard cash. It does, however, contain quite a few other goodies, including a Pollos Hermanos apron, a challenge coin, a making-of documentary, and of course, all 62 episodes of the acclaimed drama. Watch the video after the jump.
Sony posted the video below on its YouTube page.
The complete set includes all previously released bonus features, including retail exclusives that were originally only available from certain outlets, plus new special features like the two-hour documentary, for a total of 55+ hours of extras. With a sticker price of $300, it isn’t exactly cheap, but considering that it’d cost about $280 to get each separate season on Blu-ray, it’s not totally unreasonable. Especially seeing as you can get the collector’s set for around $200 on Amazon right now.
On the other hand, if you already own seasons 1-5.1 and don’t much care about the collector’s set extras, the final eight episodes will be available in the usual packaging for $66 on Blu-ray or $56 on DVD. Extras include cast and crew commentaries, deleted and extended scenes, uncensored episodes, a gag reel, that (in)famous alternate ending, and a behind-the-scenes look at that alternate ending.
Both Breaking Bad: The Complete Series collector’s set and Breaking Bad: The Final Season go on sale November 26. Click here for more comprehensive information on what’s included with each.
