Breaking Bad is a good show. No. Breaking Bad is a great show. No. Breaking Bad is the best show ever made. Yes. Yes it is. For those of you that don’t watch this show and live meaningless lives, it follows a basic plot. Genius high school chemistry teacher gets lung cancer, starts cooking meth with a former student to give his family money to live on after he dies, changes drastically, becomes a total boss and kills everyone in awesome ways. Oh, cerebral palsy is in there too. However, there’s so much more to it than that. Here are the little reasons that make Breaking Bad the orgasmic show that it is:
1. It takes place in Albuquerque. Albuquerque is a vastly underrated city and it’s really refreshing to have it brought into the public sphere every once in a while. Sure, its shown as a haven for drug addicts and criminals but at least you know that they’re making volatile substances and killing gang leaders in a classy town.
2. Bryan Cranston. This guy is a stud. First off, he’s a family man, always looking out for his family. Second, he is bald. Third, he’s totally one of the sexiest men on Earth. Finally and most importantly, he knows an immense amount of science. He makes bombs out of clay and stuff, steals beakers to make meth, and uses his scientific expertise to dispose of bodies in acid and literally kill people. Literally, the ideal chemistry teacher.
3. Crystal Meth. You know, before I started watching the show, I thought that Meth was a really messed up drug, the worst of them all. It makes you lose your teeth, sores form on your face, you die, loads of fun. Having watched that show, I don’t know what to think anymore. On one hand, it looks like the worst possible thing in the world. Literally, it kills you within ten seconds or makes you into a strung out druggie. But, it also seems like a really profitable business. Having said that, if anyone sees me throwing Ben Franklins in the air while slowly losing control over my organs, please intervene.
4. Oh boy. Oh boy oh boy oh boy. My man. Walter Jr. Walter Jr., or Finn as he tenderly likes to be called, is the son of Bryan Cranston’s character. A smart young man, he’s a delight to watch as he matures in the presence of his psychotic father. In an even more interesting/awesome/(I’m going to hell for this) hilarious twist, Finn has cerebral palsy and, man, it’s just incredible. No, but cerebral palsy is no joke. No one should automatically have to hold back laughter whenever he starts speaking; it’s not fair to the character or the show. His disease isn’t funny. It really isn’t. Not at all. It certainly doesn’t merit uncanny impressions. No way.
In conclusion, if you aren’t watching Breaking Bad, start now. It’s more addicting than meth.
