Abstract

The average healthy human being will frown upon criminal activity. However, many are unaware of the psychological effects that a terminal illness may have on an individual. Terminally ill patients' thought process is critically affected by the constant reality that death is imminent. The purpose of this study is to explore how terminal illness is addressed in Breaking Bad Season One. After analyzing the series using a thematic analysis; the researcher found three fundamental themes: 1) Illness and Financial Interest, 2) Fear-Human Disregard and Murder, and lastly 3) Secrets and Family Distress.
