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.

  • God-awful

    This has got to be one of the worst TV shows of all time. What do you people see in it? I wanted all the characters killed off except for Saul. Plot's dull. Storyline stupid... who in their right mind would cook meth in someone else's house while it is supposedly being renovated?
