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 8 major category Primetime Emmys from 2008-2012, despite not qualifying for awards in 2011. Most notably, Bryan Cranston has won for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama three times in a row from 2008 to 2010. Aaron Paul won for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama in 2010 and again in 2012, where he beat fan favorite Giancarlo Esposito. Anna Gunn won for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama in 2013. The show also picked up the Outstanding Drama award in 2013. The show has 72 critical wins and 153 nominations in total. Critics have largely agreed that Breaking Bad was generally one of the best shows on television, praised for its writing, directing, acting, and feature content.

  • 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.

    I'm not quite sure how to give an in-depth explanation of my complete adoration for this show without saying this: Breaking Bad is hands down the most well-rounded and brilliantly executed TV series ever to exist. This show takes you on an emotional ride visiting the comedic, thrilling, beautiful, dark, violent, and sorrowing aspects of all characters. There is a reason that nobody will shut up about this show.. and I believe the Breaking Bad legacy will continue on for years to come marked as one of the greatest shows of TV History.moreless
