Just days after his 50th birthday, chemistry teacher Walter White's life of quiet desperation completely transforms when he's diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. To support his pregnant wife and son, he partners with Jesse, a former student, to turn an old RV into a mobile meth lab. But their first attempt at unloading their product takes a deadly turn when Jesse introduces Walt to his unstable business associates. Written by
A plaque on the wall of Walt's home says he did research in proton radiography in 1985 that contributed to someone's Nobel Prize win. The winners of the 1985 Nobel Prize for Chemistry were Herbert Hauptman and Jerome Karle who won for their development of methods to determine crystal structures. See more »
At the end, when Walt bends down and throws up by the RV, you can see the microphone transmitter under his shirt. See more »

My name is Walter Hartwell White. I live at 308 Negra Arroyo Lane, Albuquerque, New Mexico. 87104. To all law enforcement entities, this is not an admission of guilt. I am speaking to my family now.

Walter H. White:
Skyler, you are the love of my life, I hope you know that. Walter junior, you're my big man. There are... there are going to be some things, things that you'll come to learn about me in the next few days. I just want you to know that, no matter how it may look...

Breaking Bad is one of the most talked about TV shows being produced today and if this introductory episode is any indication, it deserves all the hype. This pilot episode is action-packed and is very engaging from the start when we see a guy driving an RV in his underwear. There is a fine mixture of comedy and drama and I think this will be an awesome series.
This episode, "Pilot" features a 50-year-old chemistry teacher named Walter. After he finds out he has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, he teams up with a former student of his Jesse and they produce meth. But things go wrong when they try to sell the drug for the first time.
Overall, this is what a quality TV show should look like. It has great character development and some fine dramatic/comedic moments. Now I'm definitely looking forward to more episodes. I rate this episode 9/10.
