Breaking Bad: A Masterpiece of TV Writing and Acting

By: John Samy

Are you ready to dive into a world of drugs, money, and power? 

Breaking Bad, created by Vince Gilligan, The main actor is Bryan Cranston as a high school chemistry teacher turned meth lord who tries to make a living for his family in illegal ways. His cast name is Walter White or many might know him as Heisneburg as many of the die hard fans know him as.   The character Jesse Pinkman (played by Aaron Paul) is his former student and business partner. This show is wild and a dangerous ride through the criminal underworld. 

The writing in this show is top notch. You won’t find a show like this anywhere else.  Each episode is carefully made and has well developed scenes. The dialogue is sharp and witty, and the plot is full of moments that make you think what will happen next? The acting is also phenomenal. They make you feel relatable to the characters in the show. Even if they’re doing bad things, you root for them. 

Breaking Bad also shows some of the most stunning views in any Netflix show. The show is shot in New Mexico, and the landscape is used to show a sense of tension and unease. The setting also goes along with the show. It matches it perfectly. 

The show explores themes of morality, loyalty, and the American Dream. It raises questions about the cost of success and the price of power. As Walter’s empire grows, he  becomes increasingly ruthless, but the viewer can’t help but root for him… even if he’s doing bad. 

Breaking Bad is violent, profane, and at times, downright disturbing.  If you haven’t watched it yet, I highly recommend giving it a try. Just be prepared to be pulled into a world of drugs, money, and power that you may not be able to escape. My final rating for Breaking Bad is 5 stars out of 5 stars. So, if you like intense dramas with great acting and writing, this show is definitely for you.
