'Breaking Bad,' widely considered the best show currently on television by bloggers who like to ram their actually-not-at-all superior pop-culture tastes down your throat (this guy!), returns to the small-screen this Sunday night. In order to properly overhype casual and diehard fans alike, we're fully committed to bringing you the latest and greatest Heisenberg related material. Onto the roundup!
First, we have a "Walt chewing out Jesse" supercut, put together by pop-culture mag Vulture. The supercut nicely captures a crucial element of the show, that being Walt displacing his anger on Jesse Pinkman's decidedly unstable psyche, which often makes Jesse do angry Jesse Pinkman sh*t.
In other news, creator Vince Gilligan is apparently highly interested in developing a spinoff based on Bob Odenkirk's character, the money laundering phenom known as Saul Goodman. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gilligan said, "I would love to see a Saul Goodman spin-off show when it’s all said and done...I think that would present itself pretty nicely, storywise. While Breaking Bad is by design a show that is finite and limited in its scope — it’s a story of transformation that cannot go on forever — I think a Saul Goodman show could have great legs. I love the idea of a lawyer who will do anything to avoid going to court. He’s always going to settle on the courthouse steps"
Gilligan, however, added an important caveat. "No viewer should breathe a sigh of relief that Saul won’t expire by the end of Breaking Bad." He further stated, "Saul has got to survive this show first...And if he doesn’t, then maybe it can be done as a prequel.”
And finally, we have Jesse Pinkman saying the word "bitch" a lot.
Don't miss the Season 5 premiere Sunday night at 10. Because if you do, its only a matter of time until you're berated by a friend who won't stop telling you how "siiiiiiick" it was.
