2018 in Pop Culture Anniversaries

When a couple hits 10, 15, 25, or 50 years of marriage, they celebrate their milestone anniversary in grand style. Family and friends gather, and sometimes all-out-bashes and parties are thrown in their honor.

But what about pop culture anniversaries?

There are many pop culture phenomena celebrating anniversaries in 2018. Films, television shows, comic books, video games, and music that has created an impact on the generation they came out in, and generations to come.

Below are some major pop culture anniversaries being celebrated this this year.

The Debut of Breaking Bad

10 years ago, on January 20th, one of television’s most memorable characters debuted on a show that exploded on the small screen. Before Breaking Bad hit, audiences were only familiar with actor Bryan Cranston’s less-cool portrayals as Seinfeld’s geeky dentist and the dad on Malcom in the Middle.

That all changed in 2008 when Walter White was born onscreen as a chemistry teacher who would end up wowing audiences as he evolved into a methamphetamine manufacturer and drug dealer — all in an effort to make ends meet.
