Breaking Bad Season 3 Premiere & Television Poster

Breaking Bad, one of the best shows on television, returns to AMC this Sunday night (March 21st) for the start of its third season. It’s truly amazing how quickly Bryan Cranston was able to shake off the wholesome image he cultivated while starring on Malcolm in the Middle to truly become Breaking Bad’s Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher who turns to making meth to support his family when he learns he is dying from cancer. Cranston has since won back to back Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for this role, and they were well deserved for his stunning portrayal of an everyman pushed to the brink.

Aaron Paul (Big Love) also stars as Jesse Pinkman, a former student of Walt’s and his partner in meth making. Paul’s performance in Season 2 was so captivating, I almost wish they had given his character more screen time over Walt. Jesse’s struggles with drug addiction were interesting, exciting and depressing all at once.

I can’t wait to see what Season 3 has in store for Walt, his family and his newly expanding drug cartel. In many ways, Breaking Bad has become the blue collar equivalent of The Sopranos, with the show focusing on both Walt’s home life and crime family, and how the two effect each other. I hear Season 3 has some crazy game changers early on, so expect a bumpy ride this year!

Breaking Bad airs Sunday nights at 10/9c on AMC.
