It is a monument of the small screen holder of no less than 16 Emmys carried by the iconic duo Bryan Cranston / Aaron Paul: we named “Breaking Bad”, the only, the unique, the iconic.
We no longer present Walter White… or maybe one last time! This father and professor of chemistry converted into the manufacture and sale of methamphetamine will forever remain one of the most emblematic figures of the small screen.
In Breaking Bad, Walter is stricken with incurable cancer and, with nothing holding him back, the reserved man embarks on this criminal enterprise to secure a financial future for his family. Converted into a drug baron, who will want to be more and more ruthless, he teams up with Jesse Pinkman, one of his former students, who has become a small second-class dealer.
Vince Gilligan’s now cult series, written, directed, and performed (notably by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul in their heyday) with unparalleled precision and talent, dared to tell, with intelligence and complexity, an “ascent” craziest – or a real descent into hell as you want.
Although it will take you five seasons to reach its conclusion, the adventureis worth the detour, it promises you an end that should not leave you indifferent. Considered one of the greatest series finales of all time and nominated for six Primetime Emmy Awards, the 62nd and final episode is the most viewed of the show and its audience testifies to the enthusiasm and devotion of its fans who were eager to know its outcome.
Indeed, 10.28 million spectators gathered behind their screens on September 29, 2013, in the United States to say goodbye to Walter White, and among them, many are those who have not recovered from this end full of sadness. emotion that will go down in the annals of television.
And for the record, the popularity of the episode – which generated millions of comments online at the time of its airing – is such that it led to a 2,981% increase in sales of the song “Baby Blue” by Badfinger, which accompanies the ending sequence, as well as a 9,000% increase in his plays on Spotify. The influence and impact ofare measured here and two words come to mind: power and success.
Dark and violent, but also funny and moving, above all downright hypnotizing and as addictive as one could wish, this legend of the small screen is a must-see (or see again).
