First of all, if you don’t follow Aaron Paul on Twitter, you must. He’s lovely and he always live tweets new “Breaking Bad” episodes with the rest of us normals (sigh, only two left). His regular use of the social networking platform has earned him a respectable million plus followers who hang on his every word. One of my favorite things to do is to look at his Twitter responses and find the one person who always – ALWAYS — has something inappropriately sexual and random to say. Click on for some of my favorites.
Well. That was … DARK. Last night’s episode of “Breaking Bad” was one of the most action-packed, upsetting, well-written pieces of television I have ever seen. Shit hit the fan in ways both expected and not. Without giving away any spoilers for those of you who haven’t watched yet — what is wronnnng with you?? — let’s review the seven stage of grief following “Breaking Bad”‘s most traumatizing episode ever, as expressed on Twitter.
Hmm, maybe the affection and loyalty Walt feels for Jesse is of a more … romantic
nature? But who woulda thunk Skyler would be down for a menage a trois
Jimmy Fallon only has six months left as the host of “Late Night” before he takes over at “The Tonight Show,” and he has a lot of work to do. Watch as he brings on a partner, zips up his hazmat suit and starts slinging jokes instead of Walter White’s signature blue meth in this ridiculously spot-on spoof of “Breaking Bad,” featuring cameos from real BB cast members Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris and Bob Odenkirk.

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]
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! But really, our gratitude for this extremely talented and humble actor — who is seriously killing it in the final season of “Breaking Bad” — is hard to put into words anyway, so we’ll instead leave you with these 34 GIFs … one for every year his hotness has blessed this earth.

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. Howevs, I think it’s safe to assume that if the casting director is cracking up while you’re reading your lines — the way the “Breaking Bad” casting director is giggling while a young, long-haired Aaron Paul auditions f0r the show in 2007 — it’s going pretty well. I missed last night’s episode (NO SPOILERS, THANKS!), but it’s safe to say that Jesse Pinkman is one of the greatest characters on TV right now, and most of that is thanks to Paul’s love and dedication to Jesse’s story. Pinkman was, after all, supposed to be killed off after the first season of the show, but Vince Gilligan saw something in Paul and kept him around. We do too. [YouTube]
Is it my birthday? No seriously, is it my birthday? How else can you explain someone creating such a perfect masterpiece of all the things I’m interested in? The only thing that’s missing from this extremely comprehensive video of the cast of “Breaking Bad” doing R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix)” is maybe a basket of kittens eating a pizza. If you don’t want to see Jesse Pinkman utter “bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce,” I don’t want to know you. [YouTube]
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’s Get It On,” right? Add a little fun. to the soundtrack and you’ve got an uplifting tale of forbidden romance. [YouTube]
