WRITING

"Breaking Bad Making Good" for Mass Media: Cultural Criticism and Problems

"Family, cancer, and methamphetamine. That, essentially, is Breaking Bad. Though of course there is much more to it than that. The television series first aired in 2008 and concluded after five seasons. Breaking Bad tells the story of Walter White, a husband, father, and high school chemistry teacher, who finds out that he has cancer. Unable to afford the necessary treatment on a teacher's salary, Walter turns to his knowledge of chemistry to cook chemically perfect meth and subsequently sells it for profit to provide for his treatment and his family. The drama in Breaking Bad comes from the many obstacles Walter faces as a result of his new line of work. This paper will use Breaking Bad as a basis to explore American culture, as implicit in two scenes specifically and the series generally."
