We’ve written about the work of Messrs. Cranston, Paul and Gilligan and their wonderful team of fellow actors, directors, writers, cinematographers, productions designers (see where we’re going with this? Basically everything and everyone was working at the top of their game here…) many times on HeyUGuys. We’ve spoken to the cast and creators and have never once considered that it was already a decade and a half since the show began airing across the world. It’s not too hard to imagine that in another 15 years the show will be as influential and enjoyable as it was when it aired, and as it is today.
If you’ve never had the pleasure of watching the beautiful spiral of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman then now is the time to catch up.
