Episode 1: Live Free or Die
In July 2011, series creator Vince Gilligan indicated that he intended to conclude Breaking Bad with the fifth season. In early August 2011, negotiations began over a deal regarding the fifth and possible final season between the network AMC and Sony Pictures Television, the series' production company. AMC proposed a shortened fifth season (six to eight episodes, instead of 13) to cut costs, but the producers declined. Sony then approached other cable networks about possibly picking up the show if a deal could not be made. On August 14, 2011, AMC and Breaking Bad's production team agreed to renew the series for a final 16 episodes. Filming began for the season on March 26, 2012.
Following a dispute between AMC and Dish Network that led to Dish's dropping AMC as of July 1, 2012, AMC posted the episode online for streaming. The episode is the shortest in the series, with a runtime of approximately 43 minutes.
The episode was praised for the flashforward cold open and Cranston's performance. In 2019 The Ringer ranked "Live Free or Die" as the 23rd best out of the 62 total Breaking Bad episodes.
No messing around here! We will now spend these next eight episodes (and possibly well into the final batch airing next summer) wondering exactly how Walt is going to get from here to there, making us unable to entirely enjoy even the triumphs, because we know this low, frightening point is on the horizon.

Do all the episodes carry a central theme about American society in general?I really appreciate your blog. It has sparked an interest in art, literature, film, and philosophy that I never was exposed to in school.
The overriding theme of the Sopranos from start to finish is that any escape from the life and the family is illusory. Season Six drives home The Sopranos as tragedy, the death of a mobster and the American Dream foretold from the minute Christopher Columbus stepped foot in this new world in search of not freedom, but silver and gold to fill the old world treasury.
Walt visits Saul's office, where Saul tries to justify why he helped Skyler give the bulk of Walt's money to Ted to pay off the IRS. Walt is unimpressed. Saul reprimands Walt for giving his wife such reckless free reign over his finances, particularly in regards to Ted Beneke, as he hands Walt the ricin capsule that he had Huell swipe from Jesse as part of his plan to frame Gus for Brock's poisoning. Saul is upset that Brock ended up in the hospital from the poisoning scheme; apparently Walt had not told him the full plan. Exasperated, Saul lambasts Walt, proclaiming "I'm done!" Walt, however, tells Saul "We're done when I say we're done.", and out of obligation, Saul relents.
It's the beginning of the end for Breaking Bad, as this AMC masterpiece kicked off its final run of 16 episodes with "Live Free or Die" on Sunday night, an episode that focused on Walter White officially moving all the way from Mr. Chips to Scarface.
"American children are less likely to live to age 5 than children in other high-income countries," the authors write on the second page. It goes on: "Even Americans with healthy behaviors, for example, those who are not obese or do not smoke, appear to have higher disease rates than their peers in other countries."
"When we were doing it, we were joking we should call it 'Live free and die,' based on the New Hampshire slogan, ['Live free or die']," Crimmins says. "The National Academy of Sciences said, 'That's outrageous, that's too provocative.' "
Sawhney thinks the federal government should try harder to fix the problems documented in the "Shorter Lives" report. He doesn't think lack of public awareness is the problem. "I really think that most Americans know that Americans are more overweight and obese and that we have higher rates of disease and live shorter lives than other countries," he says, "It's just the NIH and the CDC that don't want to take the responsibility for that failure or to do anything about it."
"If you add up the excess deaths that have occurred in the United States because of this unfolding problem, it dwarfs what happened during COVID-19, as horrible as COVID-19 was," Woolf says. "We've lost many more Americans cumulatively because of this longer systemic issue. And if the systemic issue is unaddressed, it will continue to claim lives going forward."
Rather than feel overwhelmed at the immensity of the problems, Sawhney suggests, the focus should instead be on the fact that every other rich country has been able to figure out how to help people live longer, healthier lives. That means that Americans could do it too, he says.
