So as a stroke of a genius he begins manufacturing and selling methamphetamine with one of his former students. Yeah you read right his former student the one that fail chemistry and who is no longer in school, that is a pair match made in heaven.

Here is a brilliant original series. It is a series that is well written and I mean well written of the best well written series so far. Now there is a lot of them well written those days but this one takes the gold medal. The series is unpredictable and gritty. it is one surprise after an other it does not allow to get your bearing back. The thing is that I noticed is that the cancer is not making him weaker but stronger, he has him as he has nothing to lose. he will do what is necessary to succeed. He finally tells his family that he has cancer. He does not seek treatment but tried the alternative methods. The chemistry between the actors is perfect. Although Aron Paul does a great job. There is the upside down of having a partner who messing up things from time to time. Breaking bad is terrific television and super entertaining.
