Betsy Brandt wears purple in every episode. Marie and Hank have purple everything in their home. Dishes, sheets, furniture and even bathroom items. See more »
In the opening credits, the "Br" and "Ba" in "Breaking Bad" are presented as if they are entries from a periodic table of elements. The additional pieces of information included are atomic number, atomic mass, oxidation states, and electron shell configuration. Each of these is depicted accurately for both Br (bromine) and Ba (barium), except the electron shell configuration for Ba is copied verbatim from Br. The periodic table that the entry for Ba is visually extracted from contains the correct information. The creators were most likely aware of this, but thought the opening had enough merit to warrant this disregard for correctness under artistic license. See more »
Opening credits use chemical symbols from the periodic table of elements as part of names : bromine (Br), and barium (Ba) for the title, none for creator Vince Gilligan (except when he gets a V for Vanadium), one for cast and crew members. See more »

This serie is unique. This is somehow realistic and amazing also. I have watched so many "Based On A True Story" movies but none of them real amazing for me. (Just A Beautiful Mind was very good.)
I don't know how script writers think this serie. It is real complicated and amazing story. I did watch this serie twice. I tried to find nonsense parts. I just found two nonsense things in all five seasons. It is best crime, drama TV series possible. Amazing storyline, acting, cinematography. Definetly it is the best tv serie of all time.
