Did You Know?


In season 1, Anna Gunn asked Vince Gilligan about Skyler's occupation while she wasn't with Walt. Gilligan said that she was taking it easy because she was heavily pregnant. Gunn arguing that pregnant women could still do things, asked him to write her something to do. The subplot was never included due to the writers' strike. See more »


In the pilot episode Walt is celebrating his 50th birthday, S5 E4 Walt turns 51 and on the series finale he turns 52. However, it isn't until S4 E10 that Walt Jr, aka Flynn, celebrates his 16th birthday and in the finale episode he is coming up in his 18th birthday. The entire span of 6 seasons was to take place in 2 years of story line. See more »

Stunning Comedy-Drama
13 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I probably haven't been hooked to a TV show like I am to Breaking Bad before. This beautiful piece of art is incredibly well written and directed, furthermore the actors are doing a tremendous job! I've read a few remarks about the pace of the show, saying it is too slow. I completely disagree, there are so many aspects which get their place in the series, every single one in its own way and it would be horrible if we'd see a too fast paced show containing ridiculous cliffhangers like we see them on the major networks. Because this way you can entirely fall in love with the show, the characters and every tiny detail of the story and the best part of it, it is unbelievably addictive and makes you starve for more week after week!


Kudos to Mr. Gilligan, kudos to Mr. Cranston and kudos to everyone else who's making a contribution to this show!
