    I don’t really understand how the producers of Breaking Bad didn’t have money to pay a scientific advisor. I think this is a really fascinating thing to be a part of. I worked on a TV show in LA before continuing on with my studies and they should allot some money for expert advice. Scientists already work extremely hard and shows like Breaking Bad make a lot of money when they catch on. Yet time and time again I see advertisements looking for such advice but offering nothing in return, no credit and no monetary compensation.

    I think that in movies there is a constant BIG error as they usually show that scientific breakthroughs are done by a lone scientist (sometimes in their home!), when in reality it takes huge Research groups and an enormous amount of infrastructure.
