AMC’s Breaking Bad took its final bow after five seasons on Sunday, Sept. 29.
Breaking Bad was created by Vince Gilligan and stars Bryan Cranston as the protagonist Walter White, taking place in Albuquerque, New Mexico and follows Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher turned meth lord.
Five CSUSB students lament on the lose of their favorite show.
CSUSB President of the Society for Student Filmmakers Adam Ghossein said he would miss, ” the incredible storytelling and the chemistry, the writers were always able to keep the audience on the edge of their seats.”
“As a former science major, I still have a lot of knowledge about science and to see a lot of things I’ve learned in a chemistry lab be utilized as a primary aspect of the show was cool,” continued Ghossein.
“Walter White will be missed,” said Ghossein. “Bryan Cranston played this character better than anyone else ever could. He was best known from my childhood as the dad in Malcolm in the Middle where he was mostly used for comic relief.”
“But his character has so much depth in Breaking Bad and I’m glad he was able to have that opportunity to show the world just how good his acting is.”
“What won’t I miss?” said Rachel Garcia. “I plan on watching it all over again from the beginning.”
“Such a perfect show the character development, the changes in Walter and Jesse from the first episode to the last were phenomenal. But watching the show, you empathize and root for that change. I just love the twists and turns,” continued Garcia.
I asked JR Cataquis what his favorite moment of the series was.”Is this a serious question?”
“It has to be the season four finale ‘Face Off”, if I would have to pick an exact moment, it would have to be that moment when they revealed the Lily of the Valley plant in Walt’s backyard.”
“They showed that while the song Black was playing and I just remember the wide range of emotions I was feeling at the time. It was awesome.”
“I’m going to miss waiting for Hank to find out who Heisenberg is,” said Maria Rivas. “The expression on Hank’s face when it all came together was priceless.”
“Los Pollos Hermanos,” said Raymond Aris. “Freaking Gus’s fast food meth franchise.The clever chemistry Walt did to get out of situations, Walter Junior going through his phases and Jesse just being himself, so many awesome characters.There will never be a show like it.”
