Jesse Pinkman, the former student turned meth-cooking sidekick of Walter White, was originally supposed to die during “Breaking Bad”‘s first season, but has gradually and beautifully evolved into the show’s moral compass. As the show comes to a close this Sunday — and Jesse’s future hangs in the balance — this video looks back at every single, solitary shitty thing poor Jesse has endured during “Breaking Bad”‘s five seasons. Jesse, you’ve had it rough, bitch. [Slate]
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.

Add a little fun. to the soundtrack and you’ve got an uplifting tale of forbidden romance. [YouTube]
Walter White, Jesse Pinkman and the rest of the dysfunctional, meth-making “Breaking Bad” family return this Sunday, for the second half of season five and the season finale. We are so sad to see them go, but also super stoked that after about a zillion months we’re going to find out just what Hank’s gonna do now that he knows Walt’s up to no good. To make this episode even more enjoyable, we’ve prepared this handy “Breaking Bad” Bingo Game Card. First one to mark off five in a row gets … a lucrative drug-making operation in Albuquerque?
To recap, here’s what you should look out for… Keep reading »

Sigh. The final few episodes of “Breaking Bad” return in July of 2013. Until then, we’ll take the doggy versions of our two favorite meth makers instead. [Uproxx]
