There’s ample evidence of toxic fandom out there, and the Albuquerque homeowners of Breaking Bad have seen some of the worst of it. After one-too-many tourist invaders and pizzas to the roof, the owners have apparently erected a security fence to dissuade entitled fans.
We’ve all rolled our eyes at one time or another as TV creators liken their work to “a 73-hour movie,” especially when it devalues the episode as a medium. Breaking Bad in particular has many standout hours that couldn’t function any other way, but some lunatic fans have now recut all 62 episodes into one two-hour film, and it … kind of works?
The third season of Better Call Saul couldn’t help leaning into the announcement of its biggest Breaking Bad cameo to date, but don’t think stars Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul will ever stop teasing their own returns. The latter even suggests that Jesse Pinkman might already have shot a Season 3 appearance, but how?
Chances are, you’ve heard of a few odd easter eggs linking The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, even going so far as to posit that the zombie apocalypse occurred shortly after the events of Breaking Bad’s final season. If not, allow Netflix to literally draw those connections for you, while we purchase supplies for a giant cork board.
The second season of AMC’s Better Call Saul put the devil in the details to slyly confirm one major Breaking Bad return, but how many should we expect for Season 3? At least one more, according to Bryan Cranston, but perhaps not who you’re thinking.
Breaking Bad successfully turned Mr. Chips into Scarface, but did you know that AMC wanted Matthew Broderick or John Cusack for the role of Walter White? Or that Jesse was supposed to die in Season 1? These are just some of the crystal blue persuasions from the thirteenth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which cooks up a new batch for AMC’s Breaking Bad!
‘Breaking Bad’ may be completely, definitively over, but that doesn’t mean Walter White is ready to leave popular culture alone. Oh, no. As long as Bryan Cranston is alive and as lone as insurance companies are prepared to back dump trucks full of cash up this house, we’ll get to see America’s favorite meth dealer pop up every so often. So while it’s weird to se Cranston play Heisenberg one more time in an Esurance commercial, it’s not that surprising.
