I just started watching Breaking Bad from the very beginning. It premiered in 2008 & will soon be in it's fourth season. It's about a struggling high school chemistry teacher, holding down two jobs. His wife is expecting and he has a disabled son. He desperately needs money when he is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer & has to get expensive treatments. On a ride along with his brother-in-law, who is a DEA agent, He sees a former student fleeing the scene of a meth lab & teams up with him to do this for the money problems he has facing him. I'm only at the beginning stages of this show, but you could see what an unlikely pair they are and what they get into.
