“Breaking Bad,” the AMC cable TV series about a high school chemistry teacher who turns to making meth, is showing its final eight episodes. Here are some scenes from the past five seasons.
Bryan Cranston portrays Walter White, an Albuquerque high school chemistry teacher who became a cooker and dealer of methamphetamine. It all started when Walter learned he had advanced cancer at age 50. Potential explosiveness is continually presented as a literal threat to the meth business but also a subtextual theme to the relationships in “Breaking Bad.” Chemistry is everything.
