How Did I Miss Breaking Bad?
A good friend of mine on numerous random encounters kept saying to me "I'm really into Breaking Bad at the moment?" and I completely blanked the prospect. BIG MISTAKE!
If you have not had the pleasure of Breaking Bad (Which is now in its final throws of life) it follows the misadventures of Walt (Bryan Cranston) a middle aged school teacher who receives the diagnosis that the cancer he has is terminal. With financial debts mounting up, a loving wife, teenage son, and unborn daughter on the way, Walt sets up a drug lab in the back of a former students mobile home.
Walt and his sidekick Jessie (Aaron Paul) have a fairly, dysfunctional relationship, and a moth to the flame style problem that always brings the darkest possible things to their door. As Walt ventures into the world of meth-amphetamine he starts to step out of his stayed ways. And as each chapter unravels his lines of what is good and bad become blurred. Walt will kill, deceive, and manipulate those around him to stay one foot ahead of the game.
If you have not ventured into the world of Breaking Bad, I urge you to give it a shot, you can purchase the DVDs series 1-4 by clicking the links below. Or you can stream all the series up to the current run on Netflix in both the UK and US.
