Breaking Bad‚Äôs Impact on Society
Television has had a tremendous impact on the entire world, whether it is positive or negative.
From dramas, to sitcoms, to even reality shows, they all seem to affect different places. The hit drama Breaking Bad has had a monumental impact on not only the city of Albuquerque where it was filmed, but the entire world. It centers on Walter White, a brilliant, over-qualified chemistry teacher who turns to making crystal meth in order to support his family after being diagnosed with lung cancer.
Although on certain occasions, it may seem that this impact has been a negative one, it has surprisingly been seemingly positive. For example, Breaking Bad has influenced some to act in outlandish, bewildering ways. There have been several murders and attempted murders that are parallel to murders attempted in Breaking Bad. However, despite the specific, out of the ordinary instances, the overall impact of the show has actually been rather beneficial.
The amount of Americans who use meth has declined since 2008 (Breaking Bad‚Äôs first year on the air). Not only has it deterred people from using methamphetamine, but it has singlehandedly turned around the entire economy of Albuquerque with its success.

Hart‚Äôs roommate, Dean Settle, told the police that Breaking Bad was Hart‚Äôs favorite show, and police even found a DVD of the show in Hart‚Äôs V.....[read full text]
Those people are eerily mistaken. Breaking Bad actually does the exact opposite; it minimizes and degrades it. It shows how the life of one man, Walter White can be completely flip-turned into a life of disaster because of it. Walter White had a loving family, a beautiful wife, a son, and methamphetamine took it all away from him, and even ended up costing him his life. Breaking Bad glorifies meth no more than Schindler‚Äôs List glorifies the Holocaust (Ewing) or Passion of the Christ glorifies Jesus‚Äô torture and death.
Not only has Breaking Bad deterred people from using methamphetamine, but it also brought it millions of dollars in revenue to save a strugglin.....
