Cards You're Not Likely to See: Breaking Bad Relic

  "I guess it got the best of you...and it's always on your mind. One day your soul you cannot find, and then you want to break the rules. I see a part of you has died. And you live your life in lies. With more surprise out of the blue,blue." ~ King's X, "Blue"

  If you have never tuned into AMC's award winning drama "Breaking Bad", you've really missed out. I began watching the series a couple of months ago on Netflix and have come to the realization that it's more addicting than the meth that protagonist-turned-antagonist Walter White, along with his partner Jesse Pinkman, can cook up. Superb writing, acting, and cinematography all contribute to what makes this such a good show. While not for the faint of heart, the violence and the manufacturing, distribution, and use of the drug is not glorified. The writers do a great job in showing the consequences of ideas and of actions. In portraying the everyday joe Walt White as teacher-turned meth manufacturer, we see that this could be anyone. Even oneself. How far are you willing to go to protect your loved ones; do you have a line that's drawn?

  An interesting side note concerning the King's X lyrics: as far as I know, this song has never been used on the show-but I found the lyrics to fit quite well with the whole theme.
