‘Breaking Bad’ is hard to do

-A A +A

By Owen Bradbury Aranda

AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” one of television’s most well-known and best dramas came to a close Sept. 29, after five terrific seasons of exceptional television. 

Created by Vince Gilligan, the show, set in Albuquerque, follows the life of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a chemistry genius working as a high school teacher. 

When White is diagnosed with lung cancer, he turns to a life of crime and the production of methamphetamine to pay for his treatment and leave money for his family before he dies.

Also starring Aaron Paul, Anna Gun, Dean Norris, Betsy Brant, RJ Mitte and Bob Odenkirk, the show supports an extraordinary cast, which truly brings each character to life. 

The series is filled with stellar cinematography and one of the best plot lines of any show. 

The story has so many clever plot twists and turns that it will not only keep the viewer hooked after the first episode, but will keep them on the edges of their seats through all five seasons.

The series has been recognized for its excellence. Overall, the show has been nominated for 113 industry awards and won 45, which include 10 Primetime Emmy Awards over its five-and-a-half-years on the air. 

It also won a 2013 Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series.
