There are times in showbiz where its best to lower expectations--like whilst applying to colleges, its better to be pleasantly surprised rather than inexorably disappointed. Rules have never applied to Breaking Bad though--which seems to be a theme as we near the final, evidently epic installment.
It's funny to watch Aaron Paul talk about the show--despite he himself playing such a huge role, he's also a pretty huge fanboy. None is more evident than this quip, which came from an interview with BuzzSugar:
Before I read the final eight episodes, the final eight hours of the show, I was thinking to myself, this is so tragic. I can't believe this show is ending. I didn't want it to end, but after knowing how the final eight hours play out, I couldn't be happier with the way that it ended.
In all honesty, I couldn't wait. If I got an email on my phone with the final eight, I thought to myself, "I'm gonna wait to get home and actually have the paper scripts, sit on the couch, drink some wine and take my time with it." But in all reality, probably six out of the eight episodes I read from my phone on a plane to something. I could not wait. I'm a huge fan of the show as well . . . You guys are gonna sh*t your pants!
There you have it. Join Heisenberg and friends August 11th for the beginning of what's sure to be a brilliant end. For now, keep yourself occupied with the excellent footage below.
