Between the drama of the game itself, the cool movie spots, and a bevy of controversial and/or sad commercials, there was plenty to talk about during the Super Bowl. One of the most surprising moments, however, happened when Bryan Cranston reprised his multiple award-winning role as teacher-turned-meth dealer Walter White from Breaking Bad. He did so for an Esurance commercial that’s got that creepy Breaking Bad vibe, but also lots of humor and inside jokes. Watch the Bryan Cranston Breaking Bad Super Bowl commercial, in both the regular and extended lengths, below. Read More »

November 2014 really seems a bit late to be parodying the biggest pop culture hits of 2013. We’ve already seen enough Frozen mash-ups to last us a lifetime, to say nothing of Breaking Bad parodies. But hey, great art takes time, and “Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?” is worth the wait.
As the title suggests, the Breaking Bad Frozen parody reimagines “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” through a Breaking Bad lens. Anna’s wistful musical appeal to Elsa becomes a dangerous plea from Walt to Jesse. Watch “Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?” after the jump. (Warning: Major Breaking Bad spoilers ahoy.) (Another warning: If you proceed, you will have the tune stuck in your head for the next 24 hours.) Read More »

Walter White may have had a rough year, but Breaking Bad had a great one. The AMC drama practically swept the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight with five wins, including Best Drama Series. The only series to pick up more statuettes this year was Sherlock: His Last Vow — and that’s only if you count the four Creative Arts Emmys it won earlier this month on top of the three it picked up during the telecast.
On the comedy side, Emmy voters continued to be high on Modern Family, which won Best Comedy Series for the fifth year in a row. Indeed, the most noticeable pattern to emerge in 2014, better or for worse, was Emmy’s preference for repeat winners over new ones. All four victors in the major acting categories had won before. Meanwhile, newbies like Orange Is the New Black and Silicon Valley were shut out. Even True Detective managed just one win during the ceremony, for director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Oh well. At least Fargo went home with Best Miniseries.
Hit the jump for the full list of winners.

As it is, the Breaking Bad finale was pretty damn violent. But apparently, things could’ve gotten even bloodier. According to showrunner Vince Gilligan, at one point the writers were considering killing off just about everybody in a “Wild Bunch bloodbath of an ending.”

Breaking Bad was such a popular show, odds are some of the millions of viewers didn’t get it. Certainly, every week some viewers followed the adventures of Walter White seeing not a scary descent into evil, but a rise to financial independence. Yes, Vince Gilligan’s story showcased a middle-class man who used his own knowledge to become a multi-millionaire. However, he got there by killing people and lying to the ones he loved.
So if you thought, “I’m sure some idiot out there will watch this and try the same thing,” you are right. An Illinois man was arrested this week for cooking meth and, at the time, he was wearing a “Los Pollos Hermanos” t-shirt. That’s the chicken store so central to the plot of Breaking Bad. Read More »
