From Killing Brain Cells to Expanding Them
2 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Breaking Bad fans prepare to regain some brain cells & increase your intelligence!

Just watched the first two episodes of Big History on H2 on 02 Nov., 13 which Bryan Cranston now narrates.

If you are a history fanatic as I am then you need to catch this show!

Praise to Bryan Cranston for his narration of the series. It is great that now he can show those fans of Breaking Bad that he has more interests and talents than just being an actor who plays a killer drug dealer.

Which in turn benefits our children's intelligence as well as adults.

Bravo & keep up the good work Mr. Cranston!
