Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Breaking Bad on Lightbox this Weekend
Believe it or not but this weekend signifies the 10th anniversary since Breaking Bad first aired! Here’s another believe it or not, I have not seen a single episode despite people telling me how good it is!
Before you start to abuse the shit out of me for not watching (we all know I deserve it), allow me to redeem myself by saying that since all 5 seasons are available on Lightbox so this weekend seems like as good a weekend as any to finally sit down and watch Breaking Bad and celebrate 10 years in syndication with that chemistry teacher turned drug lord Walter White.
Starring Bryan Cranston as Walter and Aaron Paul as his apprentice Jesse Pinkman, Breaking Bad ran from 2008 until 2013, claiming two Outstanding Drama Series Emmys and a Golden Globe for Best Television Series Drama.
Cranston claimed four Lead Actor Emmys for his portrayal of Walter, while Paul took home three Supporting Actor Emmys as Jesse. Anna Gunn, who played Walt’s wife, Skyler, also scored a pair of Supporting Actress Emmys.
The Breaking Bad universe, of course, permeates spin-off Lightbox show Better Call Saul, which features slippery lawyer Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) and fixer Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks). The prequel, which debuted in 2015, will launch its fourth season in 2018 exclusively on Lightbox.
