A high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer turns to manufacturing and selling methamphetamine in order to secure his family's future.
An odd humpbacked flute player is mounted on the walls of some scenes throughout the series, most notably in Walt's backyard. This character is Kokopelli, a fertility deity venerated by some Native American cultures in the Southwestern United States. He is believed to be a trickster among gods. Kokopelli became an important marketing item in the 1990s on items such as t-shirts.
In Walter White's back yard, the outline of a fire place is next to the sliding back door. Inside the reverse wall is the dining room/kitchen. The fireplace should be on the side of the house.
Opening credits use chemical symbols from the periodic table of elements as part of names : bromine (Br), and barium (Ba) for the title, none for creator Vince Gilligan (except when he gets a V for Vanadium), one for cast and crew members.
All episodes were rerun on an on-demand cable channel in some areas, without commercials but with additional scenes not included on AMC.
