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.

  • Best TV show since the Wire.....

    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
  • I Miss you, Walt

    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

    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.
  • Best show you will EVER watch

    This show was amazing. Each season was better than the last. It had a great finale, which answered all of the questions the viewer could ask.

    I don't have any complaints about this show, except for the fact that it ended. This show had it all. Drama, action, comedy, thrillers, and so much more. We should thank Vince Gilligan, the creator of this show, for constructing such a masterpiece.
  • Breaking records!

    Breaking Bad was an awesome show. IMO, whoever doesn't like it, he just can't appreciate the good series! It's one of the few series (if not the only) that has all serie-genres in humongous doses! You want action? You want family drama? You want comedy? You want thriller? You want mystery? This series has it all in abundance! Every season is better than the previous ones and that's also a rare thing for TV series.. Nevertheless, the casting was extraordinary great in their roles. To wrap it up, for sure one of the best series of all times! Hands down!moreless
