Breaking Bad
By Jon Zajac

As a fan of Breaking Bad, I’m always looking for ways to bring the show’s intensity, suspense, and intrigue into my events. One fun way to do this is by using Breaking Bad-themed “This or That” icebreaker questions. By asking questions related to the show’s characters, plotlines, and themes, you can create a sense of excitement and engagement among your guests and encourage them to share their opinions and experiences.

How to incorporate Breaking Bad themed This or That questions

To incorporate Breaking Bad-themed “This or That” questions into your event, follow these steps:

  1. Prepare a list of questions beforehand that are related to the show’s characters, plotlines, and themes. You can find inspiration from watching episodes, reading recaps, or browsing online forums and fan sites.

  2. Print out the questions on cards or display them on a screen or a poster board. Encourage your guests to form small groups of 3-5 people and take turns asking each other the questions. You can also create a rotation system where each group moves on to the next question after a set amount of time (e.g., 2-3 minutes).

  3. Make sure everyone has a chance to answer each question and listen actively to their responses. Encourage follow-up questions, comments, and discussions that build on the initial answers. You can also share your own insights and opinions about the show to keep the conversation flowing.

  4. After everyone has had a chance to answer all the questions, gather your guests in a larger group and ask them to share their favorite or most surprising answers. You can also use this opportunity to highlight any commonalities or connections that emerged during the activity.

  5. Consider using some of the insights or stories that came up during the “This or That” icebreaker as a springboard for further conversations and activities throughout the day. For example, you could organize a trivia game based on Breaking Bad trivia or create a photo booth with props inspired by the show’s characters and settings.

Ideas on different themes of questions

To keep your Breaking Bad-themed icebreaker questions fresh and engaging, you can explore different themes and categories that are relevant to the show. Here are some ideas:

  • Characters: Ask questions related to the personalities, relationships, and motivations of the show’s main characters (e.g., “Who is your favorite Breaking Bad character?” or “Which character do you relate to the most?”).

  • Plotlines: Ask questions about the show’s twists, turns, and resolutions (e.g., “What was your favorite episode of Breaking Bad?” or “Do you prefer the early or later seasons of the show?”).

  • Themes: Ask questions that explore the show’s themes and messages (e.g., “What lessons have you learned from watching Breaking Bad?” or “How has Breaking Bad changed your perspective on morality?”).

  • Moral dilemmas: Ask questions that present moral dilemmas inspired by the show’s storylines (e.g., “Would you rather be rich and happy but harm others, or poor and virtuous but struggle to survive?”).

  • Cultural references: Ask questions that reference pop culture, history, and current events that are featured in the show (e.g., “Which real-life drug kingpin do you think was the inspiration for Breaking Bad’s characters?” or “What is your favorite Breaking Bad meme?”).

By incorporating these different themes of questions into your Breaking Bad-themed icebreaker activity, you can keep your guests engaged and entertained while also fostering a sense of community and shared interest. So why not give it a try and see how it can enhance your next event!
