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.

    I was one of the person who thought this show was overrated while I wasn't yet completed with Breaking Bad. Trust me, patience is all you need till Season 3, Episode 4, after which slowly things will start to gain pace. The initial episodes are slow and thorough to give a clear picture and depth of the family/social situation Walt (the protagonist) goes through. The last episode is worth enough to watch the show completely. It is an awesome show which gives you mixed emotions/impression on the protagonist (Walt). I say hold on and keep watching it. It is one of the epic stories you will see.

  • Okay show

    5.0
    Overrated like heck but I still think Breaking Bad is decent. Not the best show in history, it is just alright.
  • Vince Gilligan needs to study cancer patients if he is going to write about them

    5.0
    I have gone through chemotherapy - Walt was never as tired or nauseated as I was - they did account for the hair loss though
  • amazing character study

    9.0
    an amazing study in character where the under dog protagonist become the sympathetic villain and the good-for-nothing becomes the one who must survive.
  • Best Crime drama
