It’s that time again! Awards season is upon us, and what better way to remind us that we’re still irrelevant for not having watched “Breaking Bad” than by continuing to nominate it for things, am I right? Anyway…
Tons of great TV shows are up for awards this year, including some of The Frisky’s personal favorites, “Orange Is The New Black,” “Modern Family,” “American Horror Story: Coven,” “Game of Thrones” & more. To give us a sneak peek at what’s to come, the cute kids who acted out the Oscar Best Picture nominees are back to
make us want to steal them give the same treatment to this year’s EMMY nominated TV shows, including “Game Of Thrones,” “True Detective,” “House Of Cards,” “Mad Men,” “Downton Abbey,” and (surprise, surpass) “Breaking Bad.” Check out the video above for your daily dose of smiles, and don’t forget to tune in to The EMMY Awards live on NBC this Monday, August 25th, at 8 p.m. EST.
But that’s not all! The Frisky will be live-tweeting throughout the show and pre-show red carpet starting at 7 p.m. EST. Follow us on Twitter to join in on the fun!
Yesterday, I was perusing Gap.com and lo and behold, who did I see? A seriously gorgeous male model who, upon closer inspection, I realized was Walter White Jr., aka Flynn, aka RJ Mitte from “Breaking Bad”! My loins haven’t been this confused since I found myself having a sex dream about Kevin Spacey/Frank Underwood in “House of Cards.”
Vince Gilligan may be getting (some of) the gang back together! According to Rolling Stone, Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman on “Breaking Bad,” said he was in “serious talks” to appear in show’s upcoming spin-off, “Better Call Saul.”
“Anything Vince is involved with, I’m there,” Paul said. “I owe him my entire career. And the idea of jumping into the skin of Jesse Pinkman again in his lighter days — because it’s all a prequel — it would be fun.” Keep reading »
Admittedly a cappella is not for everyone. For those of you who are suffering from “Breaking Bad” withdrawal (all of us), have a listen to this a cappella cover of the show’s theme song. The Warp Zone, the group of comedians behind the video, have done the same for theme songs of shows like “Doctor Who” and “Game of Thrones.” And they do it in costume! Have a listen? [Laughing Squid]
Parents have long taken inspiration for their child’s name from pop culture. For the last few years, “Twilight”-inspired names like Bella/Isabella and Edward have been huge, as have names borrowed from famous tots like Mason (Kourtney Kardashian’s son).

Months before “Breaking Bad” fans lost their shit after finally learning about the fates of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in the series finale, their portrayers, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, read the script for “Felina” for the first time. And a camera was there to capture their reactions as they read the script aloud. I love being able to see Cranston and Paul process the information they’ve just read; the realization that Jesse makes it out alive, and that Walt doesn’t. And the bits of scene description/non-dialogue are fabulous too: “That big M-60 has been placed in there sideways, mounted atop the rig Walt built. It rattles away, sweeping back and forth like Satan’s windshield wiper.” Genius. [via Gawker]
