The Entire Breaking Bad Story Finally Explained

  • Published on Oct 10, 2019
  • Over the course of five seasons, Breaking Bad told the tale of Walter White, a man whose cancer diagnosis drove him to cook and sell meth. Now, we’re going to dig deep and explain the story of the timid chemistry teacher who finally broke bad.
    In the first episode of Breaking Bad, high school chemistry teacher Walter White is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. After finding out from Hank Schrader, his DEA agent brother-in-law, how profitable cooking meth can be, Walt teams up with a former student named Jesse Pinkman to cook meth so that he can make enough money to provide for his family after he's gone.
    Unfortunately, Jesse and their batch of newly cooked meth are snatched up by a pair of dealers named Krazy-8 and Emilio. The two force Jesse to take them to the RV where Walt and Jesse have been cooking, presumably to kill the two and to take their materials. Walt poisons the two of them, but Krazy-8 survives long enough that Walt is forced to kill the meth dealer himself.
    Soon after, Walt's family pushes him to pursue chemotherapy rather than just accept his fate. Ultimately, Walt agrees to seek treatment, even though the cost would put his family even further into debt.
    Walt and Jesse make their partnership official with a simple division of labor: Walt will cook, while Jesse will sell.
    Jesse reaches out to a local crime boss, Tuco Salamanca, to see if he'd be interested in buying larger quantities of the pair's high-quality meth. To put it simply, negotiations do not go well. Walt moves in to handle Tuco, using his chemistry skills to prepare an explosion to intimidate Tuco. Impressed and amused, Tuco agrees to work with Walt and Jesse.

      Season 1 and 2 are the best. The whole series is enjoyable but as you get closer to the end it quickly gets cringy, especially when Walter led Hank on just so he could say Gail was not a genius.

    If you have seen the show and El Camino, what could this video possibly tell you that you don’t already know? F this video and just watch the show. This channel has to invent BS to keep videos coming

    Could you please finally explain The Wizard of Oz? The B&W, the flying monkeys, that tin man with the spout on his head, all those little people and that little biting dog? Don't give me the plot -I want it e x p l a i n e d. Feel free to constantly interrupt with ads because the boring voice puts me to sleep and include the repulsive background music to keep me alert. Thank you in advance.

    If you watched the series, there would be no need for this generalized summary about it.
    His bitch ass wife was unappreciative of the sacrifices he made to ensure his family financial future after he was gone in the little time he had left. His son is clueless how the real world works or what it takes to make it in the world.
    Walter White did what he had to do in order to make it in this world. If not him, someone else would have been doing it so if he has the knowledge and drive to supply the drugs to the addicts, he isn't responsible for the choices they make or the drug cartels for that matter.
    This was a great show that really ruined it with his wifes attitude and sons stupidity.

    This was a great series up until the end when they hurry up and rushed the ending because all the actors were getting higher paid opportunities elsewhere.

    Jessie Pinkman seemed to become an entire different person by the end of this series. Completely destroyed. The Breaking Bad Movie was pretty good. I think it's called El Camino.

    1.21 Gigawatts 2 months ago +1

    One of the things that really stuck out at me on my second viewing of this series is the total destruction of a really nice family. My first viewing I was sad for the death of Walter, my second viewing I was sad about the ashes he left behind. Hank is dead, Marie is a widow, Skyler is quite possible a soon to be criminal, Holly has lost a father, an uncle and possible a mother to the justice system and worst of all is Walt Jr. At least Holly is young enough not to remember all of this but Walt Jr's life is completely ruined. Everyone he loves is either dead or in a serious situation. Not to mention he'll always be remembered as a drug kingpins son. Sure he has ten million dollars waiting for him, but that's almost a year away. He's going to have to go through a whole lot of shit to find the rainbow at the end. Really quite a depressing ending to a fantastic show

    Jane, Gretchen, and The principle were the finest pieces of ass on this show. Id clap any of those cheeks anyday.

    On watching this a second time, I think there is a major missing piece to the story. Gus Fring, we find out, is the biggest, badest dealer in the southwest. However, he seemed unaware of what Walter and crew were doing. I think it makes more sense that by the time walter walks though the door of "los hermanos" that he knew all about them, the blue meth and what they had been doing. "know your competition".

    The actor that played "tuco" had to leave for another engagement. Imagine how cool BB would have been if he could have stayed.

    It is a sad statement about health care in the USA that a person has to cook meth in order to pay for his cancer treatment. I used to work in a hospital and yeah people die because cannot afford treatment all the time.
