Breaking Bad: A Complete Visual Timeline

Breaking Bad has been argued to be the best show of all time. Season 5, it’s final season, has a near perfect score on Metacritic. Lilach Manheim however has taken her fandom a step further. Using the data from Breaking Bad’s Wikia page, she created what I consider to be the ultimate visual timeline. She breaks down the number of episodes in each episode. How many hours every minute represents. The amount of time every major character survives on the show. She even discovered patterns in the deaths of major characters. Don’t just look at this graph. Scroll over it, read it, and access the different windows using the navigational buttons at the top of the screen. The amount of information crammed into this viz deserves every fan’s time.
