A high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer turns to manufacturing and selling methamphetamine in order to secure his family's future.
On the Breaking Bad podcast, Creator Vince Gilligan revealed that Mark Margolis was initially intended to become the main antagonist from Season 3 on. However, they eventually decided to make Giancarlo Esposito the series' main antagonist instead.
Walter, if I have to hear one more fucking time that you did it for the family...
Walter White: I did it for me. I liked it. I was good at it. And... I was really... I was alive.
In the opening credits, the "Br" and "Ba" in "Breaking Bad" are presented as if they are entries from a periodic table of elements. The additional pieces of information included are atomic number, atomic mass, oxidation states, and electron shell configuration. Each of these is depicted accurately for both Br (bromine) and Ba (barium), except the electron shell configuration for Ba is copied verbatim from Br. The periodic table that the entry for Ba is visually extracted from contains the correct information. The creators were most likely aware of this, but thought the opening had enough merit to warrant this disregard for correctness under artistic license.
