'Bad' is Good

On September 29th, the final curtain closed on the epic tale of Walter White, the high-school-chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-kingpin protagonist of AMC’s brilliant and beloved series, Breaking Bad.

For five seasons, the show bucked television conventions in favor of non-traditional narrative, pitch-black humor, and an anti-hero that defined moral relativism.  Creator, Vince Gilligan, never disappointed, yet almost always defied expectations. 

The entire cast is superb, but Bryan Cranston truly earned his three consecutive Emmys for embodying Walt, who is at once tragic and terrifying — a small and unfulfilled man who is corrupted by the ecstasy of power.
