Last night I saw a preview of a show that had shots of Albuquerque, so I knew I had to tune in to check it out. After watching one episode of Breaking Bad
(AMC Channel), I'm hooked.
The show is about an Albuquerque chemistry teacher who decides to cook meth to support his family after learning he has cancer. It's a dark comedy that is amusing to watch as familiar Albuquerque scenes appear throughout the show.
The acting is good and the personal conflicts of the main character Walter White, played by Brian Cranston
play out on the screen slowly--but appropriately.
It's about quiet desperation, pride, and one man's prospect of death and failures as a father and husband. The acting, mixed in with the setting of Albuquerque seem to play out nicely together.
This may be too far of a stretch, but perhaps Walter White is like Albuquerque in some ways.
