About this product
- DescriptionOne of the most critically acclaimed series ever produced, Breaking Bad won legions of avid viewers who debated its every nuance as they followed the story of how terminally ill high-school teacher Walter White becomes a criminal-mastermind drug kingpin. This one-of-a-kind volume-adapted and expanded from the interactive e-book Breaking Bad: Alchemy-is the only official guide to the show. It covers the evolution of Breaking Bad from the pilot to the final episode and beyond, and highlights the unique elements that made the series so magnetic. It's filled with insider secrets about the making of the show and the meanings behind its icography, as well a complete series timeline, exclusive interviews with creator Vince Gilligan, and a new introduction from ted film critic David Thomson. In addition to exploring how this epic came to be, Thomson sets Breaking Bad in the context of both crime literature and long-form television. Illustrated with more than 300 images and insightful captions by Thomson, this must-have volume offers the most thorough look at Breaking Bad, which Thompson believes is t only a great TV show (winning 108 industry awards and minated for 260) but one of the most significant works of fiction in the new century.
