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. What else were the great capitalists of New Mexico supposed to do besides squeeze every last penny from their infamous, regionalized crystal? In honor of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman’s “Blue…

Bryan Cranston Admits That He Once Fantasized About Killing An Ex-Girlfriend

“What happened to Walt is something I related to … If I’m truly honest with myself. I’ve come to realize that I think everybody is capable of [transforming into a villain]. If you came into a condition where you were under tremendous stress. And if I knew what buttons to push that threatened you and…

Aaron Paul Is Really Good At Gift Giving

“Breaking Bad” will start its final descent this August, though the cast and crew have already wrapped up filming. As a memento of the occasion, Aaron Paul (that’s “bitch” Jesse Pinkman, to you) got every member of the cast and crew a personalized bottle of Bushmills whiskey. He tied it all with a note that…

If “Breaking Bad” Was A Crappy ’90s Family Drama

What might happen if you took “Breaking Bad” and put it in the wayback machine to 1995, mixed a little “Party of Five” and some “Dawson’s Creek” in, with liberal helpings of “Walker, Texas Ranger”? You’d have this opening credit segment for “Breaking Bad,” positioned as a heartwarming family drama, with plenty of laughs, tear…

Cat Dresses Like “Breaking Bad” Character, Possibly Cooks Meth

Is there anything cuter than cats in costumes? Maybe babies in wigs. But George the cat, who is dressed like Walter White from “Breaking Bad,” is still pretty cute. At last we finally know the answer to what cats are up to all day when we’re at work: cooking meth. [Laughing Squid]…

Let’s Have A TV Baby, Okay?

I once tried to get a TV baby going with a guy who had just started watching “Breaking Bad” — but our relationship was doomed to fail — I was actually three seasons in, and there was no way I’d have the patience to start over from the beginning. Probably my most long-running TV baby…

A Very “Breaking Bad” Thanksgiving Special

Will we ever tire of “Breaking Bad” parodies? Not likely. And hopefully the parody machine will continue on long after the show (sadly) ends next year. This time we have Walter White and Jesse Pinkman trying to make a Thanksgiving pie. This Jesse and Walt are two of the most convincing versions of the character…

OMG Mike Ehrmantraut Is On “Parks And Recreation”!

Have you been going through “Breaking Bad”/Mike Ehrmantraut withdrawal? Good thing actor Jonathan Banks, who played Walter White’s crusty foil on “BB,” did a guest spot on “Parks And Recreation” last night, playing Ben Wyatt’s dad. He seems to have brought a lot of Mike to the role.

Watch and laugh at this amazingly spot-on “Breaking Bad” parody of Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Getting Back Together.” Incidentally, if you are a bald dude and you’re not going as Heisenberg for Halloween, you are completely living your life wrong. [YouTube]…

Mike From “Breaking Bad” Talks About Menstruation

Well before he played, sniff, grandfatherly hitman Mike on “Breaking Bad,” actor Jonathan Banks still dealt in some pretty bloody business. Here he is in a strangely long informational video about menstruation. Odd!

Mmm, Crystal Meth Donuts…

I’m still reeling from Sunday night’s tragic episode of “Breaking Bad” — GODDAMMIT I DON’T WANT TO HATE YOU WALTER WHILE BUT I DO! I HATE YOU! You know what would take the edge off my pain? A donut. Specifically a Breaking Bad Blue Sky donut from Albuquerque, New Mexico’s Rebel Donut. Who knew Heisenberg’s blue meth…

A Guy Named Walter White Was Busted On Meth Charges

This guy! This guy! Okay, so he doesn’t look much like Bryan Cranston, but I don’t know — when you’re a meth dealer named Walter White, maybe it’s just about living out your destiny. White was busted for meth manufacturing in Alabama because of course. No word on if he’s got a wife named Skylar…

Skylar Stands Up To Walt On “Breaking Bad”

“Breaking Bad” is one of my favorite TV shows, like, ever, but I rarely blog about it because it usually takes me a couple days to process all the intricacies of each episode. However, last night’s episode featured such a fantastic scene between Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and his wife Skylar (Anna Gunn) that I…

Watch: Aaron Paul’s Embarrassing “Price Is Right” Appearance

It’s come to our attention that methed up “Breaking Bad” hottie Jesse Pinkman has a scandalous back story. Jessie — real name Aaron Paul — admitted to Jay Leno that he once appeared on “The Price Is Right.” He made it all the way to the Showcase Showdown, too, but overbid and lost. Paul and…

Emmy Awards 2012: “Girls,” “Breaking Bad” & “Downton Abbey” Rule The Nominations

The 2012 Emmy Award Nominations were announced this morning and, personally, I was pretty stoked on the nominations. “Girls” and Lena Dunham were nominated in the comedy series and lead actress categories which made me think two things: A) “Girls” is a comedy series? and B) Suck it, haters! Practically the entire cast of “Breaking…
