Brian’s Blog: Breaking Bad is Back Tonight! [VIDEO]
The corruption of chemistry teacher Walter White will come to fruition in the 5th and final season of “Breaking Bad”. And I’ll be watching!
I’ve been a fan of the cable channel American Movie Classics (AMC) for over 25 years. They started out playing great old movies, now focus more on the modern classics, and a few years ago went in to original programming with “Mad Men”.
“Breaking Bad” was their second foray into original programming. The show, starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, follows Walter White, a high school teacher, who, thinking he has only two years to live after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, teams up with his former high school student, Jesse, and begin to cook and sell methamphetamine in an effort to secure a future for his family. But what the pair don’t expect is the test of their morality that comes as Walt transforms into a major player in the drug trade.
Cranston has won an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Breaking Bad in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
Paul has won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Breaking Bad in 2010.
This show is definitely a major monday water cooler topic for me. The show has more twists, turns and bloody scenes than a lot of major studio releases.
The climactic scene of the final episode of season four, “Faceoff”, will go down as a TV classic moment.
I’ll be watching Sunday night. Will you?
