Over A Decade Later, 'Breaking Bad' Is So Binge-Worthy Right Now

'Breaking Bad' is a must-watch television series that will keep you on the edge of your seat and constantly craving more.

About The Show:

'Breaking Bad' follows a middle-aged father and chemistry teacher, named Walter White, who finds out he has contracted lung cancer. It is shown at the beginning that his chances for survival are slim. Not wanting to leave behind his crippled teenage son, and pregnant wife, Walter White attempts to find a way to provide enough money for his family to survive after he is gone.

After his brother-in-law and DEA Agent Hank Schrader takes Walt on a "joyride" of a methamphetamine drug bust, Walter hatches a plan to convince a former student and now drug dealer Jesse Pinkman to join him in the making and selling of crystal meth. This story takes on several incredible and even unforeseen challenges that will make your head spin.

About Your Author:

I must be real with you here, I am not actually a TV show fanatic. I rarely watch television.

breaking bad oops GIF Giphy

This rarity is because I do not usually enjoy movies or binge-watching shows. I tend to find most stories predictable. I cannot get past poor writing, and tend to pick out plot holes, inconsistencies, and catch any flaws. Yeah, I'm kind of a terrible movie watcher.

Not to mention, I also have diagnosed ADHD and can't usually sit through an entire movie - nonetheless an entire season or show. The fact that I even got through the entirety of 'Breaking Bad' and loved it enough to immediately try to buy all of the show's merchandise, talk my family's head off, and then go on to watch every blooper/gag reel from each season proves that this show is something quite extraordinary.

The Hot Take.

'Breaking Bad' takes place in Albuquerque, New Mexico but includes many scenes and episodes within Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and even all the way up to New Hampshire. With a very diverse and even disability representative cast, 'Breaking Bad' breaks barriers between the seemingly normal outside world and an inside operation of methamphetamine and drug lords.


While this show appears dark and unwelcoming to the average person, 'Breaking Bad' is so much more than the drug empire. In fact, the production of crystal meth by Walter White is merely the underlying subject, issues arise between relationships, family, mental and physical health, overcoming drug abuse, schemes, and most noticeably, morals.

The show hits hard on the matter of psychological abuse using gaslighting, many forms of manipulation, abuse, and lies to create an unhealthy and dangerous environment for the characters, and an intense, stressful, and invigorating show that will leave you with white-knuckles.

The absolutely extraordinary writing done by Vince Gilligan, Moira Walley-Beckett, and more is a style so unique from any other TV show written before. 'Breaking Bad' has such a creative and unique feel to it. The production style has such a way of catching your attention and keeping you interested for an entire 45 minutes. The writing is so detailed and creatively genius that you just cannot make any correct assumptions as to what will happen next. The incredible part about this is that there are no plot holes left behind; each subplot is fulfilled. Every character and scene holds a purpose, not just to waste time or distract from the original plot.

I love 'Breaking Bad' because it was one show where I could not successfully guess what would happen next. It kept me on my toes, and so invested in the storyline. After finishing the series I was so stunned. "What an incredible, extraordinary show", I said to myself through tears.

No matter how many movies or stories you've watched, it is unlike anything you have ever seen before. 'Breaking Bad' is an experience: an emotional rollercoaster, filled with surprises, bombs, and many admirable characters. 'Breaking Bad' is a show of a lifetime.

So, are you ready?

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Last night on "The Bachelorette," Yosef (aka the guy who was accused of sliding into women's DMs before the show began filming) continued his streak of red flags by calling Clare "crazy."

To give you a little more context, this red flag happened after Clare got very upset with the guys on her group date for not making an effort to speak to her one-on-one when the opportunity arose and an awkward silence ensued. Because of this, she was clearly embarrassed and ended up having to ask them to ask her to go for a walk, which was... painful to watch (and probably to live out).

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences.

For the past five years, my mom fought an on-and-off, uphill battle with breast cancer. However, earlier this year, in August, we received the awesome news that she's in remission!

She may be on the road to recovery right now but there are still some struggles to deal with and important things to keep in mind along the way. I watched my mom persevere, and show strength and willpower that I didn't know she had. She surprised a lot of people along the way — even herself.

This Hair Mask Is Like A 5-Minute Head Detox — It's The Best Thing I've Ever Put On My Dry Scalp

It's perfect for anyone who's disguised their dandruff as snowflakes.


- Like face masks, hair masks are a great way to do a more intense treatment that tackles more specific issues like dry strands or an itchy scalp.

- I don't necessarily suffer from dandruff, but my scalp can get a little itchy post-workout and in the colder months.

- I tried the Malin + Goetz Detox Scalp Mask and it was a game changer — my scalp felt cleaner, smoother, and more refreshed than ever in five quick minutes.

- The mask is a go-to for a clean detox of my hair and scalp after I've put a lot of product in my hair or done a lot of styling to it.

Like most self-proclaimed beauty guru and product junkie, I've been obsessed with my hair and hair products for decades. For me, the goal has always been to transform my dry, brittle strands into thick, shiny, and silky ones.

For that reason, I've spent a lot of time (and money) on styling and heat products that have, at times, made my hair look great at the expense of excess product buildup and heat damage.

Remember when thin eyebrows were in? Unfortunately, me too. If you've over-tweezed your eyebrows, you know how much of a painful and slow process it is to get them back to a "normal" shape — let alone trying to keep up with the newest trends that seem to come and go every other month.

But, what does that look like nowadays? A defined, thicker brow which, I will admit, takes a lot of time and practice to perfect.

I'm A Student At Drexel University And COVID-19 Has Been Frustrating

My experience as a senior at Drexel University in Fall 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.


I am a senior mechanical engineering major at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. Drexel already has a weird quarter term system, so classes began at the end of September. All undergraduate classes are online, either synchronous or asynchronous. However, most graduate classes are still in-person.

As of October 19th, Drexel has 14 active cases (13 students and 1 employee). There has been a total of 113 cases in the Drexel community (104 students and 9 employees).
