Breaking Bad is rated 9.5 out of 10 on IMDB. It’s safe to say that the Emmy-award winning series owns a place in the pantheon of most popular TV series ever.
The story is about a chemistry school teacher who turns to a life of crime, producing and selling the world’s purest crystal meth after he’s diagnosed with inoperable lunch cancer in order to secure his family’s financial future.
Pretty catching, right?! But what set the series apart from every other crime drama?
Time proclaimed “It’s a drama that has chosen the slow burn over the flashy explosion, and it’s all the hotter for that choice.”
According to the New York Times, President Barack Obama is also a huge fan of the series. Allegedly he’s admitted that Breaking Bad is one of his favorite TV shows and that he is currently making his way through the five-season crime drama.
The series finale has stirred many discussions but we refrain from commenting on it to avoid spoiling it for those of you that haven’t yet watched it!
