This article addresses some of the key moments in the first two seasons of Breaking Bad (2008-2013). It utilises the concept of the liminal subject to address the ways in which protagonist Walter White’s actions disrupt and trouble the boundaries between criminal and conforming behaviour; in so doing, it suggests that the series’ narrative framework orients viewers’ attention toward a sociological, rather than a populist understanding of crime and deviance.
