Breaking Bad title sequence

by Critical Commons Manager

The AMC drama Breaking Bad uses the trope of chemical symbols for the credits in its title sequence, as well as otherwise enigmatic references to the chemical formula for crystal meth, the substance that is at the heart of the show's morally ambiguous narrative intensity. Breaking Bad remains one of the best shows on television in part because it flaunts contemporary sheepishness about dealing with taboo subjects such as potentially sympathetic drug manufacturing and use.
