Number 3: Breaking Bad
This show is one of the best shows on television currently, in fact AMC kills it in the television department; Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Killing, and (and my personal favorite) The Walking Dead/The Talking Dead. And when it comes to character development, it doesn’t get much better than this. Since the beginning I have had a love/hate relationship with Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Skyler White (Anna Gunn) and their relationship, and now I still struggle with find the redeeming qualities that will save them in the end. But isn’t that the point of this show? To debate the moral standings of these characters as the enter the treacherous world of drugs, while dealing with a brother in law (Dean Norris) that has a hand in bringing these characters to justice. In the show we have also watched Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) grow from a punk into someone who could hold his own. As this show comes to an end I believe we will come to the breaking point of all these characters, especially since Hank just discovered Walter’s connection to the blue meth. Although this is a late summer show I cannot wait to see how these characters will save themselves from this world they are all untangled in.
- Breaking Bad will premiere Sunday, August 11 at 9/8c on AMC
