Begun in 2008 on AMC, Breaking Bad chronicled the life of Walter White, a terminal lung cancer patient and high school chemistry teacher. Desperate for a way to take care of his family after his inevitable death, he turned to meth production once he discovers the fabulous, quick wealth it brings. The show ended in 2013.
Better Call Saul
A series that is at once prequel and sequel to Breaking Bad, 2014's Better Call Saul explores the life of Saul Goodman, Walter White's somewhat dubious lawyer. Although it contains "flash forwards" to the time following the last episode of Breaking Bad, it is primarily set in 2002 — when the character was known as Jimmy McGill.
Ozymandias is the fourteenth episode of the fifth season of Breaking Bad and the sixtieth episode of the series altogether. Walter White tries to save Hank Schrader's life. Flynn discovers a horrible truth. Everyone copes with radically changed circumstances.
