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]

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.

The final season of “Breaking Bad” premieres/resumes this Sunday, and to get you all caught up, the kids at one local middle school put together this charming and on-point musical synopsis of the last five seasons.

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 Sky” meth (99.1 percent pure, thankyouverymuch), the good businessmen of the Southwestern city have been selling donuts, bath salts, and candy all in the name of the fictional, highly addictive, and massively illegal drug.
