Somebody just resurrected a zombie thread in the Pit about the show “Breaking Bonaduce,” which finally bubbled a question I’ve had for a while to the surface.
Can somebody explain to me what the word “Breaking” means in the context of these TV series:
- Breaking Bad
- Breaking Amish
- Breaking Bonaduce
I can’t get my mind around it–it doesn’t seem to mean breaking in the sense of “destroying,” nor in the sense of a wave breaking. Talk to me in small words–what does this term imply?
(Note that I have not seen any of these shows, so if they explain it there, I missed it).
