Show of the week: Breaking Bad
Is Walter due for a biblical comeuppance?
Across five seasons, Breaking Bad’s Walter White (Bryan Cranston) has gone from weak-kneed teacher to monstrous crystal-meth kingpin. As Bad enters its concluding run, Walter has retired with a storage locker full of cash, and has had all who could implicate him shivved in prison. But it appears that Walt’s DEA agent brother-in-law has identified the dealer he’s been searching for, thanks to a copy of Walt Whitman poems. The show’s creator has always hinted that it’s a morality tale. If so, Walter appears due for a biblical comeuppance. Sunday, Aug. 11, at 9 p.m., AMC
