If you found out you had a short time left to live, what would you do? You would think about your loved ones, of course. And then you realize- you’re the provider for your family. How will your family get by financially when you’re gone? For Walter White of TV’s Breaking Bad, this is his dilemma. Walt is a humble high school chemistry teacher. He is a brilliant chemist and was once part of a Nobel-prize winning team of scientists. These days he is content sharing his joy of chemistry with students, and being married to his wife Skyler. He also has a son (who was born with cerebral palsy) and a baby on the way. Despite the teaching position, and an additional part-time job at a car wash, the family still is not doing well financially.

In the first episode of the series, Walt is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. With this news, Walt quietly suffers a crisis. He takes his anger out at his part time job at the car wash, where he flips out and quits. He’s at the end of his rope, and has nothing left to lose. Unbeknownst to his family, Walt teams up with an ex-student and takes on a new part time venture- one where he gets to put his chemistry skills to work- cooking methamphetamine. As a master of chemistry, he produces the purest meth ever seen. As the seasons progress, he becomes a big name in the criminal underworld and is making millions of dollars- but its not without its enormous dangers.

AMC’s Breaking Bad has received much critical acclaim for its writing, cinematography and acting performances. It has won six Emmy Awards, including three consecutive wins for Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Bryan Cranston’s portrayal of Walter White.
