This past week, something monumental happened: Breaking Bad ended. The show was extremely popular and will go down in history as one of the best shows of this decade. The show was a roller-coaster of plot twists and emotions that really get the viewer hooked and wanting more. Breaking Bad not only has a great plot, it also has great actors who managed to develop their characters in a way that made the show very real to the viewer. If you have not seen it, I definitely recommend you go on Netflix and begin watching this awesome series.
Breaking Bad is a show centered on a character named Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston. Walter is a high school chemistry teacher and he finds out that he has cancer. Worried about his finances and his family’s future, he begins to cook meth with an old student of his, Jessie Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul. Cooking meth brings in a lot of money for them, but it also brings a lot of problems. Throughout the whole series, Walt must keep his secret from his family, including his brother in law who is a DEA agent. Numerous times, he finds himself with competition in the drug market. There are also countless deaths, many surprising, while others expected. Walt becomes cold and even dangerous. He is an antihero who we hate to love, but can’t bring ourselves to stop loving. The inner conflict of his character and the decisions that he makes are what made the show so accepted by millions across the nation.
