'Breaking Bad' Season 1: A GIF Retrospective

Between examining theories, checking out parties and totally not advocating going to Aaron Paul’s house, it’s safe to say we’re steeped in Breaking Bad as of late. There will be lots of reminiscing about the past over the next two weeks, and — since nine minute recaps aren’t possibly enough — I’ll be creating season-by-season GIF highlight guides leading up to the final eight episodes. It’s really the only proper way to re-experience the brilliance.

So let’s start from the very beginning. No chicken joints, no criminal lawyers, just a chemistry teacher with cancer learning to make and sell drugs with the help of his degenerate ex-student. Also: murder, explosions, and a tub of body parts dropping from the ceiling. Good times.
