36 Chambers – The Legendary Journeys: Execution to the max!

Top thirty crime procedurals, #3: Breaking Bad

Filed under: Our Favorites, Television and/or Movies — Tony Demchak @ 8:57 am

IMDB link.

Basic premise: In a startling twist, crystal meth helps cure cancer, indirectly.

Why it’s here: Bryan Cranston was, before this show, a decent actor, but not much to write home about. This show made him into a star. More than any other show on this list, it looks hard at society and doesn’t pull punches.

Why it isn’t higher: I haven’t seen the last four episodes yet, and a big part of how successful this show turns out will be how they resolve the character. Skyler is also annoying as hell on occasion.

  1. Not agree: Skyler isn’t “annoying as hell on occasion”, she’s a stupid bitch. Breaking Bad #3? Now I really want to read what’s next! Good job man.
