Breaking Bad!

What's up guys? The reason posting has been real slow is because I have been just hooked on this little show called Breaking Bad. While reading the Wikipedia plot or something from IMDB may make it seem kind of a strange show, don't worry, this show is awesome. I'm on Season 2 Episode 1 right now, so this isn't going to be a full review, but there are still a lot of good things.
The show starts out showing the main character, Walter White driving in a RV with a passed out man with a gas mask in the passenger seat and two men underneath a blanket in the cabin of the RV. You notice he has no pants on. He crashes and gets out of the car, hearing police sirens. He points a gun at the trail where the police would have come from, and it cuts off.

Now the real parts that make sense begin. It shows Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher. He has a pregnant wife named Skyler and his son, Walter Jr. who has Cerebral Palsy. Walter is diagnosed with an incurable form of lung cancer, which is also in a late stage. His brother-in-law, Hank, who is married to Skyler's sister Marie, is a Drug Enforcement Administration officer. When Hank shows Walt how much profit meth cookers make, Walt is shown in deep thought. Walt coincidentally sees Jesse Pinkman, a former student, who is a druggie. Walt realizes that with his chemistry skills with Jesse's dealing experience, they can make huge amounts of money. Walt approaches Jesse, and nonchalantly asks him to start cooking crystal meth. At first, Jesse is surprised, but later he gives in and they buy an RV and go out to the desert to cook meth. And assuming from people's reactions, they make some pretty dang good meth. I don't want to give too much away, but that's the basics.

In my opinion, this show is pretty amazing. It mixes normal "good person" life with the risks of drug dealing, a plot I don't think I've ever seen before. It is very well written, includes lots of clever plot sequences, and there are many scenes that will surprise you. All of the characters act very well, especially Walter, Hank, and Jesse. 
Also, Walt looks pretty badass with a shaved head, and even more with a goatee added to his mustache.

Watch this show, I promise, it is amazing!
