Breaking Briefs: Six Seasons of Walter White in His Tighty Whities

This Sunday marks the end of Breaking Bad, the series that's captivated the hearts of both television critics and lowly pleb viewers like us. Since the series' premiere in 2008, Breaking Bad's antihero Walter White has gone from meek-yet-brilliant chemistry teacher with a grim cancer prognosis to meek-yet-brilliant meth cook to arrogant and despicable drug kingpin with several murders on his hands. That's a lot of change to deal with, but one thing — comfortingly — has remained consistent: Walt's preference for tighty whiteys and his habit of showing them off.

Dingy underpants, you are the real hero of Breaking Bad and for that, we salute you.

Unpopular Opinion: I watched the first three episodes of Breaking Bad and I just couldn't keep watching it. Not because I didn't think it was "good", but because I totally didn't buy the whole "here's this pushover who's going to turn into a badass" premise. Pretty much he was an entitled asshole to begin with.

Am I the only one?
