I've read on different blogs, that the show is actually more "realistic" than you'd think. For instance, the end game with Walt, is not as far out in left field as you'd initially think and similar situations have been documented in "real life". I've also read, that when it comes down to a lot of the details, the writers are pretty accurate with that stuff as well.
Im a very famous meth cook and dealer. This show is very much real. Last week I had a guy rob me of money so I went to his place with stuff that looked like the meth I had sold him and as soon as i was about to get him to buy it...BOOOM I threw it on the floor and it exploded. He hasnt messed with me since.
