So what have the Americans ever done for us?
They’ve brought us memorable music, finger-licking food – and Breaking Bad.
The cult crime drama reached its exciting climax last month and now the complete box set has finally been released.
Set in Albuquerque, New Mexico, it tells the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a down-on-his-luck high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.
Faced with the devastating prospect of leaving his heavily pregnant wife Skyer (Anna Gunn) and disabled son Walter Jnr (RJ Mitte) with nothing, our charismatic yet majorly manipulative anti-hero takes drastic steps.
He teams up with failed former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), now a drug dealer, to make and sell crystal meth; in the words of Walter: “You know the business. And I know the chemistry.”
Over the course of 62 gritty albeit darkly comedic episodes, both Walter and Jesse become forces to be reckoned with.
They strike fear into the eyes of scores of callous drug kingpins. They lie (well, mainly Walter does). They win. They lose. They kill. And they make a hell of a lot of money.
Meanwhile, a top cop with the Drug Enforcement Agency promises to stop at nothing to hunt down the mysterious new boys on the block and put an end to their escalating supply of deadly crystal meth across America.
He is called Hank (Dean Norris). And he happens to be Walter’s brother-in-law.
From the genius mind of Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad is an awesome small screen masterpiece which sends you on an emotional rollercoaster and literally leaves you speechless.
With its gripping storyline, fascinating characters and stellar acting, you’re guaranteed a televisual delight which ticks all the boxes.
It’s arguably one of the best TV shows ever made.
Trust me, you’ll be hooked.
