Breaking Bad is an American television drama series created by Vince Gilligan, which premiered in 2008 on the cable network AMC. It revolves around Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a 50-year-old high school chemistry teacher in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After White is diagnosed with lung cancer, he uses his chemistry knowledge to "cook" crystal meth with his former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), in order to secure his family's (played by Anna Gunn and RJ Mitte) financial future before he dies from the disease.

Over the course of its broadcast, Breaking Bad aired 62 episodes over five seasons. The pilot episode was first aired on January 20, 2008, and the series finale was broadcast on September 29, 2013.

Minisodes[edit]

Breaking Bad: Original Minisodes is a web series based on the television series Breaking Bad. On February 17, 2009, five "mini-episodes," which were more comedy-oriented than most full episodes,[46] were made available online before the premiere of the show's second season. Additional minisodes were to be produced before the premiere of the fourth season,[47] but these did not come to fruition.[48] The first five were included with Breaking Bad: The Complete Second Season.
