This series is the best program on television you’re probably not watching.

And I know why. Star Bryan Cranston has transformed himself from Malcolm in the Middle‘s goofball dad into a bald, goateed teacher-turned-drug dealer so ruthless he will let his partner’s girlfriend choke on her own vomit to keep his buddy in the trade. That’s a tough character to love.
