Spoiler Alert! Hank Reveals His “Breaking Bad” Ending

Okay, maybe not the ending of “Breaking Bad” but an ending for “Breaking Bad”  — if the actor Dean Norris, who plays Hank Schrader, had his way. It involves a reverse-hair-growing process, a sexy babe, and a talking skateboard, so yeah, we’d totally watch this Hank-created version. Wouldn’t you? [Funny or Die]…

34 Aaron Paul GIFs For Every Year He’s Been On Earth

I’m afraid Julie and I have been remiss in our Aaron Paul-worshipping duties. Our up-close-and-personal time with Jared Leto yesterday must have distracted us from properly preparing for today’s extra special occasion … Aaron Paul’s 34th birthday!

See A Young, Hairy Aaron Paul Audition For “Breaking Bad”

I haven’t auditioned for anything since Clearview Regional High School’s 1992 production of Sweet Charity and that, naturally, didn’t go so well.

“Breaking Bad” Recast As A Rom-Com

What if “Breaking Bad” wasn’t about a megalomaniacal meth maker whose life is unraveling, but actually an unexpected love story? What if Walter White was actually in love with Jesse Pinkman? The possibility is at once so incredible and bizarre that we almost can’t handle it. I mean, everything is better when put to “Let’…

I’m Going To Watch Badger’s “Star Trek” Script Scene From Last Night’s “Breaking Bad” Over And Over Again

Last night, worlds collided. The season premiere of “Breaking Bad.” And a supremely stonerific “Star Trek” plot. Total nerdgasm. NYMag.com has a totally wonderful parsing of the validity of Badger’s “Star Trek” script idea, including whether Scotty could actually beam the contents of Kirk’s stomach into space.

Albuquerque Has A New Mascot … And It’s Totally Meth

Not that we blame them. “Breaking Bad” has totally transformed Albuquerque from that random city that’s spelled weird to the meth capital of the world.
