“Breaking Bad” became one of those shows that is iconic long before the show runs its course. The main reason for this is that people had never seen anything like it before. Also, the show’s managers were smart to end its run while it remained immensely popular. Walter, Jr. is the son of the main character (a form chemistry teacher turned drug dealer). In real life the actor has cerebral palsy, so it may seem as if he is autistic, but they are two vastly different diseases. In his case, the actor does not try to hide his disability, but lets it lend credence to his character.
