The BEST show to come on TV in a long time.
The plot centers around Walter White, a chemistry teacher with nothing going right. He doesn't get paid enough, his son has cerebral palsy, his wife is pregnant, and to top it all off, he has lung cancer. So the only logical way to raise money is to use his skills in chemistry to cook up some really "good" meth and sell it with the help of his former student-turned-pusher. It also doesn't help that his brother in law is in the DEA. Bryan Cranston, known as the wacky father and only saving grace of that disgraceful malcolm in the middle show, plays Walter to perfection.
If you haven't seen this show...WATCH IT!
Breaking Bad, on AMC on sunday nights.
by Joey Boombatz February 24, 2008
Sometimes, life forces you to cross the line. You're going about your normal everyday routine, when suddenly something truly awful happens and all that pent-up rage you feel about your job, your marriage, your very existence, is released with unstoppable fury. Some call it "reaching the breaking point"; others call it "breaking bad."

A colloquialism popular in the American Southwest referring to when someone has taken a turn off the path of the straight and narrow, when they've deviated from what's right.
Walter White was a wholesome strait-laced family man and working class high school chemistry teacher; but when he was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer he began breaking bad, turning to a life of crime, manufacturing and selling methamphetamine.

A hypnosis show that makes you talk uncontrollably about it for hours on end.
TV: Breaking bad is the best show ever made. You will never stop talking about breaking bad or The Wire.
