Ever since I started moonlighting in the Breaking Bad TV Club, people have been asking me: Does it really make sense that Walter White has positioned himself as some kind of high-end meth manufacturer? Won’t desperate junkies just settle for anything? There’s no doubt showrunner Vince Gilligan has cut some logical corners to make compelling television, but Moneybox’s view is that it’s not on the economics side. If anything is shady about the idea of premium meth, it’s the chemistry.
