One of the best shows on television has a lot of chemistry. Not only between the co-stars of the show but chemistry is the very foundation of the shows plot. Breaking Bad is an AMC breakout hit about a high school chemistry and his former student.
Walter White- Walter White is a chemistry teacher who find out he’s been stricken with terminal lung disease. This comes as quite a shock to Walter as he is a non smoker and is not exposed to an environment rich in asbestos. While resigning himself to his own death, he comes up with a plan to make money for his family so that he does not leave them in a pool of debt. Indeed, Walter White decides to use his expertise in chemistry to manufacture crystal meth.
Jesse Pinkman- Jesse is a former student of Mr. White and a drug dealer. We are first introduced to his character during a dug bust and shortly thereafter is recruited by Mr. White to help him sell his product. Jesse is more wise than Walter in how to sell the drugs and who to sell them too and the pair quickly become partners in the drug trade. Jesse struggles with his own crystal meth. addiction and his battle to stay sober is a recurring theme throughout the show.
The true beauty of the show is in the chemistry between these two characters. They are very different, but develop a close kinship that keeps audiences rooting for them despite the fact they are peddling harmful drugs. Breaking Bad enters its fourth season on AMC starting in the summer of 2011.
