What I like about Breaking Bad… …what I dislike about Breaking Bad


– plot of series
– the mix between humor and drama in the first season.

– character constellations …
– Coincidences that make situations worse – and hilariously funny (especially in first season -> escalation in each season)
– character developments over the seasons
– serious/believable acting
– chemistry facts – not always accurate but realistic
– not glorifying (meth) drug consumption
– wrecked addicts -> especially meth heads
soundtrack (cooking meth, drug trip Jesse and Jane, Valley of the sun at end of episode green light, I’m not a rocket scientist start of episode Más, start, mid, end of episode sunset, Shimmy Shimmy Ya when Jesse plays in the lab -> episode before Kafkaesque (I see you?) )
Spanish/mexican gitars when Walter and Jesse destroy the superlab (last episode of 4th season)
Lets have fun and swing music during jail assassination in end of 5th season

– getting better from season to season
– know your chemistry and the world is open
– guest stars:
-> Danny Trejo (as “Tortuga”)
->John de Lancie (as Donald – Dad of Jane)
– Robert in last season

– Innovative Camera perspectives: shovel cam, grabbing money (5th season mikes guy getting money from number cases)

– Let’s cook!
Quotes from Más:
A man bears up … and goes on
Chemistry has to be respected
Quotes from Abiqui:
You can help me cook- how iconic Walt already cooks for him
Episode hermanos: Pollos hermanos where something good is always cooking.
Tagging trees is a lot better than chasing monsters – Hank 5th season end

Constant escalation from season to season

– Character developments
= Walter from shy/duckmäuser to drug lord
= Jesse the drug addict, child, to grown up, having great ideas that move them forward (with Mike, to destroy evidence, steal methylamine acid …)

Who is not breaking bad in the series? Almost any reoccuring character dreck am stecken – even Hank when he uses Walter to install tracker to Gus Fringes car

Business aspects of drug dealing/distribution

– chemistry teacher not earning enough to support family -> even with second job
– discussing meth business in public places (Lydia Walt with Fring) – anyone might listen
