What is Breaking Bad about?
Considering the fact that the show spans over 60 episodes, explaining the entire plot of the show in a few paragraphs is simply impossible. Moreover, I certainly do not want to spoil the show for fans who are planning to watch it for the first time.
But to give a gist of the plot, it focuses on a high school chemistry teacher who gets diagnosed with Stage III Lung Cancer. It breaks him since he has lived like as an ideal citizen throughout his life while keeping himself away from drugs as well.
After almost giving up the will to live, White decides to manufacture and sell meth with his former student. He does this to leave enough fortune for the family that they won’t miss him per see. Amidst that process, White transforms into a drug lord who goes by the name of Heisenberg. And what follows will certainly keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the series.
