“Let me clue you in, Skyler. I am not in danger. I AM THE DANGER! A guy opens his door and gets shot and you think that of me? No. I am the one who knocks!”
—Walter White in Cornered
Breaking Bad was a television series created by Vince Gilligan . It aired on AMC from 2008 to 2013 across five seasons. Season one aired in 2008; season 2 aired in 2009; season 3 aired in 2010; season 4 aired in 2011, and season 5 aired in two parts in 2012 (Part 1) and 2013 (Part 2).
Walter White is a chemistry teacher. The day after his birthday he is diagnosed with lung cancer. After his DEA agent brother-in-law, Hank, busts a meth lab and running into his old student, Jesse Pinkman, during the bust (Jesse was the person they were looking for), Walter decides to ask Jesse to be his partner in creating meth. Jesse agrees. As time goes by, Walter slowly becomes the king of his own drug empire.
If by anything, this show has to be the greatest show that anyone could watch. The show is well-written to a point that there are a plethora of memorable dialogues. A great example would be the one above; "Say my name", and "Tread lightly". The deaths in the series are just too amazing. There are some moments where you want to cry, like in S5, E7 towards the end. It has brilliant acting from Bryan Cranston (Walter), Aaron Paul (Jesse), and the whole cast who are involved in each episode. The production values are great. The directing is also great. There are more words to describe the show, but I am stumbling on trying to get them because the show is so awesome.
