A money-desperate high school teacher and miscreant former-student enter the drug trade, which begins to consume them.
Breaking Bad is one of those uncomfortable-yet-riveting shows. While awesome for what it is, I don't generally recommend it.
I did watch it, and I'm mostly happy I did, but it doesn't leave a nice streak-free gloss on my memory. I guess that was the point.
The lawyer Saul got his own spinoff show, Better Call Saul (2015-)
The undertones of "naughtiness" are what make this show so uncomfortable for me to watch, and not the crime itself. I suspect I'd be in the minority for really seeing the subtleties in the progression of the lead character, Walter White.
It's generally wonderful in all respects, but there's the overall feeling and after-taste of the show which make it one which I wouldn't want to watch a second time.
Also, Krysten Ritter's character is hot during her earlier episodes.
