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!

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 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.

Get a Breaking Bad mug for your cat Zora.
A television drama about a chemistry teacher who resorts to creating and selling methamphetamine to pay hospital bills, because in all his years of teaching he somehow never got any assets or saved up money.

Through out the show the main character completely avoids the DEA, snitches and generally jealous people that would do him in. If this show was based on reality he'd have gone to prison for sentence's longer then pedophiles, rapist and murderers, after his street dealers were followed around and phone tapped, but the show isn't based on reality, so it's just something for people to come back to for entertainment.
"I've seen all the episodes of Breaking Bad so far on t.v."

"I don't get where the whole fighting terrorism direction was going with the school teacher in Breaking Bad, so I stopped watching."
