A Breaking Bad Documentary Is Dropping Next Month

A Breaking Bad Documentary Is Dropping Next Month

Fans of the incredible series Breaking Bad were delighted when the semi-sequel El Camino was released last year.

It finally gave us answers about Jesse Pinkman's (Aaron Paul) fate and how his story arc came to a close.

But if you're still hungry for more BB content then you'll be pleased to know that a documentary about the series is about to be released.

The Broken and the Bad will be hosted by hosted by Giancarlo Esposito, who played the terrifying drug lord and chicken restaurant owner Gus Fring.

It will explore some of the themes, characters and stories contained in Breaking Bad as well as the prequel series Better Call Saul.

Not only will it give you the dirt on everything that happened in the show, it will also dive into real-life events that 'loosely' inspired some of the plot lines and characters from the series.

Yep - you read that right. Some of the people and stories contained in both shows were inspired by things that happened in our world.

Giancarlo will also get technical about the drug industry, as portrayed in the show.

He will help explain what the economics of a large-scale drug empire looks like and how it runs, as well as how drug dealers, hitmen and other classic characters from the show work in real life.

The Broken and the Bad is slated for release on July 9, so there aren't too many sleeps left until it arrives. The documentary will premiere on AMC in America, however there hasn't been any other information about where people outside the US will be able to stream it.

If you want to be more involved with the Breaking Bad empire then there is another way to do it without watching a documentary.

Hasbro has thrown away the 12+ age rating for its Breaking Bad-style Monopoly game board game.

Instead of the little dog and the boot, players will have a choice of Heisenberg's hat, Tio's bell, a money barrel, a gas mask, a pink teddy bear or an RV as their counter. Houses are referred to as 'Tented Houses' and hotels as 'SuperLabs', while the board features locations such as Los Pollos Hermanos, Uncle Jack's Compound, JP Wynne High School and Schrader House.

Players are advised to 'tread lightly' in this game, which is recommended for 17+.

A description of the game reads: "Players will want to 'tread lightly' to buy, sell, and trade properties to be the last one standing in this risky version of Monopoly based on AMC's hit series Breaking Bad!

"Familiar locations and tokens based on iconic items from the show such as Heisenberg Hat, RV, Tio's Bell and more will take fans back through the sordid evolution of Walter White and his own capitalistic plan."

The game has been released by Hasbro licensee USAopoly and unfortunately it is currently only available in the US, priced at USD$39.99 (£32.23).
