SHRINK THE BOX: 2: Breaking Bad - Walter White

Kermode & Mayo’s Take

Feb 7 2023 • 44 mins

Sliding on their gloves, and stepping into their Hazmat suits, Ben and Sasha distil one of TV’s most infamous characters: The mighty Heisenburg. On this week’s Shrink the Box we uncover why Walter White is often in his underpants, how he taps into his ‘shadow side’ and we explore if the ‘Revenge of the Nerd’ is really a thing. Don’t forget to check out Season 1 of Breaking Bad to avoid spoilers. If you enjoyed delving deeper into the world of Tony, be sure to follow Shrink The Box so you don’t miss future episodes.
