Set and produced in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Breaking Bad is the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a struggling high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer at the beginning of the series. To provide for his family's future, he turns to a life of crime, producing and selling methamphetamine with his former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) in a desire to secure his family's financial future.

Breaking Bad has received widespread critical acclaim, particularly for its writing as well as Bryan Cranston's and Aaron Paul's performances, and has won four Emmy Awards in addition to numerous other awards and nominations.

This and Dexter are the two best shows that are still going right now.

It's funny, I only knew Bryan Cranston as Tim Whatley from Seinfeld, which is a million miles from Walter White. He's so fucking good in this show :blink:

I'm itching for season 4 to start :chicken:

Ok, so I'm half way through season 2, so far I like where the show is going, the acting is excellent, the best I've seen in tv in recent years along with Sons of Anarchy. What I really like about the show is they develop the characters in a way that you feel that you know them, not just small fractions of the character every other episode butt you get the whole picture or at least try to figure it out. Another thing I like is the long scenes between two characters (any two), they really shine during those scenes. I though the show was going to be a bit more 'explosive' or action packed, but so far it's just used when necessary (I'm thinking they kept that for the last seasons). Watching Walter talk about chemistry and practicing it really makes me want to study chemistry again :p I'm interested to see the transition of Walter to Heisenberg and also where the Jesse character is going. Walter's decision to cook meth as he is 'dying' really makes you rethink your life, life is really about taking risks and I feel he has done a 180° based on those opportunities he missed. I also want to see how Grey Matter is going to be involved in coming episodes. I seriously can't believe the tv I was watching back when this and other shows started, this is so much better! But I guess taste changes over time, anyway gonna keep watching BB! :D

^ One thing I like about this show is how the premise and "moral" is constantly evolving. It also makes you think why do people do the things they do even when the apparent motivating factor is no longer valid ;) Actions & behaviors are not always as simple as black or white. It often Gray :)
