Breaking Bad: Science Equals Fun (Also, Meth)

With all the focus on Breaking Bad's finale, and bringing an end to the evolution of Walter White as a character, it is important to remember that it was always very proudly a science show, that did its homework and will probably be responsible in a serge in young people taking an interest in chemistry over the next few academic years.

Dr. Donna J. Nelson of the University of Oklahoma is part of the reason for that, having served as one of the scientific advisers on the show. Here, the chemistry professor sits down with PBS science correspondent Miles O’Brien and Boing Boing’s Xeni Jardin to talk about chemistry, the show and how scientific accuracy can make a show better. Which is something that a lot more TV and movies should learn.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
