It has nothing to do with music except maybe the fact they used music in the show itself but for some reason Breaking Bad, a series created and produced by Vince Gilligan and starred Bryan Cranston as Walter White who teams up with Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman and draws in Walt’s wife Anna Gunn unwillingly it seemed, hit the jackpot with viewership in Canada and the US for a cable television show on AMC. The series was seemingly doomed when their first season in 2007-2008 was interrupted by the Writers Guild Of America strike which limited production to 7 episodes. Didn’t seem to affect the popularity… It ran for 5 seasons and a lot of us were glued to our TV’s on Sunday nights. An unlikely Sunday evening entry that was always traditionally family programming and live entertainment. Breaking Bad has received widespread critical acclaim and has been praised by many critics as one of the greatest television dramas of all time. For season 5 and at the recent Emmy’s, the program won for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Bryan Cranston (who won 3 others) Supporting Actress Anna Gunn and Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Aaron Paul. Well deserved. A spin off is expected called Better Call Saul based on the character Saul Goodman played by Bob Odenkirk as Walt’s lawyer.
