9 Most Badass Breaking Bad Episodes: The Ones That Knock ... Bitch!

by at . Comments

Breaking Bad has come to an end, but it will outlive all who worked on it in the annals of TV history, going down as one of, if not the best show ever created.

The journey of Walter White was unforgettable. Through six years and five seasons, it left an indelible mark on the genre and will be discussed for decades.

No pressure to follow that up with your next show, Vince Gilligan.

All 62 episodes of the AMC series were so impressive, selecting our 9 Most Badass Breaking Bad Episodes almost felt like a fool's errand at times.

It's hard to argue with the selections below, yet simultaneously hard to defend some of them against so many other worthy installments we could've picked.

In a sense, we basically snubbed 53 episodes. It's that good.

For the sake of argument, endless debate and remembering the greatness that faded to black in 2013, here are our choices. Scroll through and weigh in with your own!

Much of Breaking Bad Season 1 was slow and methodical, more a means of laying a foundation for what was to come than a compelling drama in its own right. The pilot, however, set the stage for the journey of Walter White with what is still one of Breaking Bad's finest installments, and not just because it got the show picked up by AMC. From that insane opening scene in the RV to his cancer diagnosis, ride-along with Hank, half-naked cook-a-thon with Pinkman and the confrontation with the dealers that almost got him killed before he even began his rise to power, the transformation of Mr. Chipps into Scarface had begun.

Breaking Bad Quotes

I watched Jane die. I was there, and I watched her die. I watched her overdose and choke to death. I could have saved her, but I didn't.
