Show Summary

Bryan Cranston (Malcolm in the Middle) stars in this drama focused on a mid-life crisis gone bad for an underachieving high school chemistry teacher who becomes a drug dealer after discovering he has lung cancer. With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis, and a desire to gain financial security for his family, Walter White joins forces with an old student, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), in a quest that follows their entry into a dangerous world of drugs and crime. Breaking Bad is produced by High Bridge Productions, Inc. and Gran Via Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television for AMC Television. Filming takes place in New Mexico.

Breaking Bad has won 16 major category Primetime Emmy Awards from 2008-2014, despite not qualifying for awards in 2011. Most notably, Bryan Cranston has won for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series four times (2008-2010, 2014) during the series' run. Aaron Paul won for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series three times (2010, 2012, 2014). In 2012, he beat fan favorite Giancarlo Esposito in the same nomination category. Anna Gunn won for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series twice (2013, 2014). The show also picked up the Outstanding Drama Series award in 2013 and 2014. The show has 98 critical wins and 168 nominations in total. Critics have largely agreed that Breaking Bad was generally one of the best shows on television, praised for its acting, writing, directing, cinematography, and feature content.

    Amazing, gripping series with characters you care about and can identify with.

    I was a late comer to the show and waited until all the episodes where on netflix to have marathon viewing sessions!

    Got totally hooked from the pilot and loved every minute!

    Thought the final season was brilliant but i wish they had not killed Mike off or did the stuff in the desert with the barrels! (Walt would never had fallen for the trick picture!) instead a better finale would have been Jack and the good ol boys freeing Jesse from Hank, finding the storage facility and taking the money to there compound.

    Walt would storm in there and get captured but Hank and the DEA guys had been following him...

    Great ending would have been a massive shoot out where everyone gets killed except Jesse who escapes with a chunk of the money...

    Well i can dream.... Vince and the team your amazing, cant wait for better call Saul!!!moreless

    This is my favorite series of all time. I miss the cast very much but I am glad it ended when it did. Way to go out on top!
  • An okay show but overrated

    5.5
    I sat through the entire series and I just didn't see what was so addicting about it. I mean that's just my bias because I'm more of a sitcom person. But the acting in this show is phenomenal and the finale was really good.
  • WHO YOU GONNA CALL?

    Better Call Saul's Wacky Music Video Features New Footage and a Catchy Tune

    What should you do if you get caught with a George Foreman Grill down the back of your blue jeans? Why, ring up Saul Goodman, of course!

    The biggest battle on Emmy night comes down to two guys, both of whom are very deserving.
