"Breaking Bad" is a fascinating show. But efforts to compare it to "The Wire," which systematically analyzed American institutions and the American experience, are misguided. "Breaking Bad" is fundamentally a conservative show that is all about the individual. This Sunday (September 2) AMC will air the final episode of part one of it's fifth and final season of "Breaking Bad," an immensely popular and critically acclaimed show about a down-on-his luck high school chemistry teacher who, after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, starts a life as a crystal methamphetamine manufacturer. The high praise of the show is largely warranted: the premise is fascinating, the photography and acting is superb and the drama intense.

In March of 2011, Wiz released his 3rd studio album Rolling Papers ("Rolling Papers (Wiz Khalifa album)" March 24, 2013).

Chris is a 23 year old male who was admitted to the Willows, an acute psychiatric ward for working age adults, in September 2009, appearing to be suffering from psychosis. Chris’ parents had became increasingly concerned when he disclosed that a famous rapper had been communicating with him telepathically, stating that he would soon be contacted and signed to a record label. Due to these delusions, Chris isolated himself from his family, friends and society, and terminated his education at college, effectively putting his life on hold awaiting contact from the rapper. Following his admission to the Willows, Chris was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, a complex disorder of the brain which alters an individual’s thoughts, perception and behaviour (National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health, 2003, p.6). The delusions and hallucinations Chris was experiencing were eventually controlled with antipsychotic medication in the form of a depot injection, namely Flupentixol Decanoate, of which Chris received a 50mg dosage every two weeks (British National Formulary, 2009, p.203).
