“We’re going to take the viewers on a ride that I’ve never experienced before,” says Bryan Cranston about the second season of ‘Breaking Bad.’ Given the dire state of the economy and the swelling ranks of the unemployed, the AMC hit about a former high school chemistry teacher who turns to dealing crystal meth after being told he has terminal lung cancer may resonate with even more people.

To prepare for the series’ return in early March, AMC is releasing five webisodes with the regular cast. One of these online shorts shows Cranston’s TV alter-ego, Walt White freaking out after his wife sells his vacuum cleaner, which he uses to stash his drug money.
