Infographic: The Final Death Toll in Breaking Bad


One of the most popular pieces at TDYLF has been The Death Toll on Breaking Bad, an infographic that I created last September at the conclusion of season 5A of Breaking Bad. When people contact me, the most common request I get- by far- is to update that piece once the series is over. Well, the series is now officially over. And the infographic has been updated.

Breaking Bad Character Baseball Jerseys

It’s the attention to detail that makes the show great. And that attention to detail extends as far as the colors worn by the various characters. I’ve tried to illustrate it with an infographic showing every color worn by the characters most affected by Walter White’s decisions, along with Walter himself. Continue reading

For a few weeks, I’d heard that Vince Gilligan was touting episodes 5 and 7 of this Breaking Bad mini-season as the two that would cause the most discussion. Episode five, named “Dead Freight”, aired last night. As you can probably judge from my headline, I think Gilligan’s warning was spot-on. Let’s discuss, shall we? Continue reading
