20 Things You Somehow Missed In Breaking Bad

All the hidden details of Vince Gilligan's landmark TV drama.

AMC

Breaking Bad is often highly ranked as one of the most iconic television series of all time. If you haven't seen it (and infinitely re-watched it), then you will most likely be annoyed by friends and family members constantly going on about it.

The crime drama was Vince Gilligan’s brainchild and centred around the epic arc of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) turning from buttoned-down, underachieving high school chemistry teacher to a deadly, heartless drug dealing criminal mastermind.

The series ran from 2009 to 2013 for 62 episodes on AMC, and (much like its central character), had a huge transformation from a show with small but devoted fan following to one of the most critically acclaimed and highest-viewed TV shows on television.

One of the reasons why the series is so well-loved and admired is that amongst many other reasons, it is heavily detailed. Even for the most avid of fans, there are still things hidden in Breaking Bad that only a re-watch can reveal.

20. Walter White’s Trousers Reappear

AMC

A very memorable moment in Breaking Bad's first episode is when Walt dons a green apron with nothing underneath but a pair of white underpants. He then hangs his trousers up for safekeeping, but when the RV drives away, they drift off in the wind.

If you look very closely, you will see that these trousers actually reappear in episode 14 of the final season, “Ozymandias”. In a long panning shot of Walt wheeling a barrel of money through the desert, his discarded trousers are actually sitting on the desert floor.

This only goes to symbolise the drastic transformation Walt has gone through across these 5 seasons.
