There hasn’t been a single series that I was this intrigued ever. Having watched every episode of every season almost back to back in 3 weeks, must admit this has to be the most brilliant TV crime drama ever. Premiered in 2008, Breaking Bad, created by Vince Gilligan, is the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a struggling high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. He turns to a life of crime, producing and selling methamphetamine (Crystal meth) with a former student, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). White’s primary goal, when he begins manufacturing the methamphetamine, is securing his family’s financial future before he dies.
The series has won seven Primetime Emmy Awards—including three consecutive wins for Best Actor for Cranston, and two for Best Supporting Actor for Paul.
