Alternate “Breaking Bad” Ending Has “Malcolm In The Middle”‘s Hal Waking Up From A Very Bad Dream…

Leading up to the finale of “Breaking Bad,” many critics and fans of the show put forward their theories about how the show would end. One joking suggestion I read more than a few times involved Bryan Cranston’s Walter White assuming a new identity as Hal, the dad from “Malcolm in the Middle” (portrayed by Cranston, of course), or Hal waking up in bed next to his wife Lois, with the entirety of “Breaking Bad” having been a very odd, bad dream. Well, lo and behold, the creators of “Breaking Bad” apparently saw the hilarity in a BB/Malcolm crossover, because they included this alternate ending on the upcoming complete series DVD box set. “There was a guy who never spoke … he just rang a bell the whole time!” [NYMag.com]
