Abstract

The researcher‟s object is Breaking Bad TV Series Season 01 Episode 01 under the production of AMC. This story directed by Vince Gilligan is about chemistry teacher, Walter White, who is diagnosed cancer in the birth of fifty. To survive his life, Walter does whatever it takes that in the end of the day leads him to the world of drugs dealing. As main character, Walter is quite ambiguous whether he is good or evil because he possesses both good and bad personality at the same time. By the time the researcher finds that Walter has the characteristic of being hero and antihero, it can be inferred that there is shifting characterization in the middle of the story. Therefore, the researcher uses consistency theory by William Kenney to analyze the character through the story itself. To support the analysis, since the object is film, the researcher also applies Film Theory by Amy Villarejo to reach the point of a deeper analysis. The researcher categorizes the discussion into three parts of analysis which are Hero, Antihero and The Shifting Characterization. The researcher then analyzes Walter White based on the characteristic of hero and antihero using M.H Abram‟s concept related to the whole plot in order to prove and explain the shifting happened. Hero manifests largeness, dignity, power and heroism meanwhile antihero is petty, ignominious, passive, ineffectual and dishonest. By analyzing the categories related to the plot, the shifting characterization is explainable. Then the researcher is able to conclude the truth of Walter White based on the variable found in a way that he plausibly is an antihero.
