My wife bought the series "Breaking Bad" on DVD. We started watching it about a week ago, and finished it last night. I can see how it many became engrossed with the series, but with me, I also could see why I've never cared for such things. It took way too long for the end, and too much boring dialog was infuriating. That, and the railroad hijacking put my critical thinking in gear. All I could do was critique how the tracks were not the right weight, ties needed replacing, the ballast was full of weeds, the string of cars was way too short for a main line train, and there is no way any railroad would have a place where there is no communication with the engineer. Still it was an interesting, and entertaining, series.
All in all, almost all the cast played characters with flexible morals, and the money laundering was astronomical. While it was fiction, it didn't take a huge leap in logic to understand such things are common and widespread.
