Watch “Journey of Walter White”, an Exploration of TV’s Favorite Criminal

One of the most talked-about and influential shows on television today is AMC’s Breaking Bad, the shocking study of how a seemingly ordinary person can slowly turn to evil. The central focus of the show is Walter White (portrayed by Bryan Cranston), a father, husband and chemistry teacher who is stricken with cancer.

Taking it upon himself to provide income for his family in the event of his passing, White begins cooking meth. However, as things often do, not all goes according to plan for White and he slowly transforms into a ruthless criminal mastermind.

The show has completed four and a half seasons, culminating with last Sunday’s mid-season finale.

And now YouTube user UltraBrawl has created an 8-minute video exploring the unraveling of White’s character, from his humble beginning to his current state.
