Everyone that knows me will know that I’m very obsessive with the things I like. So, here is a post of appreciation to the brilliance that is, Breaking Bad.
Breaking Bad is a series about this High-school Chemistry teacher who is playing it safe with his life. He finds out that he has lung cancer and that’s when his life starts falling apart, and what does he do? He starts cooking meth. The premise might seem a bit ‘meh’ but the way the story is presented is just plain genius. I only started watching it because a classmate recommended it for me saying if you like Chemistry you should watch and that’s true, I came for the love of chemistry and I stayed for the thrill. I wouldn’t even want to begin on how Bryan Cranston nails the lead role. He is the reason why the show doesn’t get too dull and boring. You actually feel the amount of misfortune this guy has been put up to. Also, he shows impeccable performance conveying the transition from this peaceful man to that meth cook who doesn’t care about anything other than to provide for his family. The series is not very action-packed (in the sense of gunfights and car chases etc.) but it is full of mind-blowing moments and the cast is as amazing as the direction.
All in all, you don’t have to like chemistry to like this show. After all, it’s not strictly about chemistry and drug lords and gangs are always appealing. Once I started watching Breaking Bad, I knew it had the potential to become my favourite drama series yet and now I can safely say it is.
I don’t know what to call this post (Review/Recommendation/Fanboy-ism), so I’m just going to call it an Introduction to Breaking Bad.
The Chemistry must be respected
