Though the series only just wrapped last fall, it’s clear “Breaking Bad” was a hall of fame show no matter your opinion on how it ended. All the great performances and moments would not have existed if the show, under the tutelage of creator and showrunner Vince Gilligan, didn’t have a supremely talented writing staff. A new video released over the weekend showcases the entire staff as they give a peak into their creative process for the cult hit.

Though the series only just wrapped last fall, it’s clear “Breaking Bad” was a hall of fame show no matter your opinion on how it ended. All the great performances and moments would not have existed if the show, under the tutelage of creator and showrunner Vince Gilligan, didn’t have a supremely talented writing staff. A new video released over the weekend showcases the entire staff as they give a peak into their creative process for the cult hit.

Recorded last December as part of The Writer’s Guild Foundation’s “Inside The Writer’s Room” series, the Glen Mazzara-hosted discussion that covers ground from Gilligan’s eureka moment when he first conceived the show all the way to the series’ final moments. All the writers are accounted for — Moira Walley-Beckett, Sam Catlin, Peter Gould, Thomas Schauz,Gennifer Hutchison and George Mastras — and with a nearly two hour running time, there’s very few topics that aren’t discussed.

Watch the discussion below and why not pop in a few of your favorite “Breaking Bad” episodes while you’re at it.
