Following on author Peter Rollins' motto qIf it isn't popular, it isn't culture, q this collection of new essays considers Vince Gilligan's award-winning television series Breaking Bad as a landmark of Western culture--comparable to the works of Shakespeare and Dickens in their time--that merits scholarly attention from those who would understand early the 21st-century zeitgeist. The contributors explore the series as a critique of American concepts of masculinity, with Walter White discussed as a father archetype--provider, protector, author of a legacy--and as a Machiavellian warrior on the capitalist battleground. Other topics include the mutual exclusivity of intellect and masculinity in American culture, and the dramatic irony as White's rationales for his criminal life are gradually revealed as a lie. In qround tableq chapters, contributors discuss the show's reception, fans who root for qTeam Walt, q qSkyler-hatingq and Breaking Bad as a feminist text.a€œWhy Flynn Is the Real Hero of Breaking Bad.a€ Salon.com. ...
