Breaking Bad Analysis

Breaking Bad AnalysisBy Caleb Caprietta

PurposeThe purpose of Breaking Bad is to show how corrupt America is and that even innocent people like Walter White who is a teacher can be forced into doing things that arent legal or morally right to provide for themselves.

In Whites (Bryan Cranston) situation he is an average person working as a teacher but then he gets diagnosed with lung cancer he is not able to pay for all the chemotherapy so he resorts to selling drugs for the money. Later on in the series, the money for the chemotherapy begins to be too much so he has to sell more drugs and then the audience watches him slowly become more corrupt

Form and StyleBreaking bad has a running time of around 42 minutes and there are 7-16 episodes in each season (there are 5 seasons). The show mainly sticks to a task or problem that is spread over the whole season but there are also tasks the characters have to overcome during the episodes, an example of this is when Walter White (Bryan Cranston) an Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) have to dispose of Emilios body.

The theme of breaking bad is about good and evil and in the end of the series no one gets away with their crimes and you will be punished. It also displays how everything you do has consequences and this helps the audience know when things are going to turn for the worse which adds to the tension of when things are going to get bad.

ContentThe main characters are:Walter White Bryan CranstonJesse Pinkman Aaron PaulSkylar White - Anna Gunn

Breaking Bad is set in different places in Albuquerque, New Mexico

MeaningThere is a hidden meaning in the series which is continuously displayed in the series through a pink teddy bear which has half of its face destroyed. Every time it is shown in the scene, it is linked to White making decisions that go against his morals.

An example of this is that the teddy bear was shown in the episode when Jesses girlfriend starts to throw up on her own puke because of drugs, he lets her die because he thought she was only doing harm to Jesse.

GenreThe genre of breaking bad is a crime because a lot of the characters are killed because they are all related to the drug trade business so the DEA are trying to crack down on who is causing al the trouble to stop the death.

There are also elements of a drama because the whole reason Walter White starts making and distributing drugs is to pay for his chemotherapy and provide for his family.

Target AudienceThe target audience for breaking bad is aimed at people age 17 or above because of the mature themes that are displayed throughout the series, and the attention to detail with things such as the gore and the process of making the drugs.

Although Breaking Bad Had mature themes, there were toys made for children that were distributed in stores like ToysRus. Some parents wanted the action figures or Jesse and Walter to be removed because she said kids are easily influenced so they may be exposed to the programme even though the age rating is meant for people 17 and older
