Seriously, does anyone NOT know about this show yet?
If you’ve tasted this show then you’re probably already hooked. AMC’s “Breaking Bad” is about as addicting as the synthetic drug, whose world it highlights. For this reason, it’s no surprise with the amount of press that the premiere of the final season is getting.
Walter White is everywhere this week, plain and simple. Turn on the TV and it’s likely that you’ll catch a glimpse Bryan Cranston’s face.
Thursday on “The View,” Cranston passed out individual baggies of fake crystal meth to all the ladies. Previously, Cranston’s co-star Aaron Paul told the hosts that the drugs used for filming were actually sweet treats, made out of rock candy.
Cranston also appeared on NBC’s "Today" where he admitted he would certainly be on board if “Breaking Bad” pulled an “Arrested Development” and decided to do a movie.
The show is so popular, in fact, that it has inspired a nonviolent protest against DISH Network, who dropped AMC, the channel that broadcasts the show, at the end of last month.
“AMC wants its loyal DISH viewers to experience the excitement of the ’Breaking Bad’ premiere at the same time as their friends and neighbors,” a statement from AMC read. “We want to give DISH customers an extra week to switch providers so they can enjoy the rest of the season.”
In the meantime, the network will stream the season premiere online for current DISH subscribers.
Cranston, being the class act that he is, has used all the recent publicity to launch a little campaign of his own. In a new YouTube video, he and his wife and daughter appear in a marriage equality PSA for the Human Rights Campaign.
“Gay and lesbian couples should have every right to experience the joys of marriage and family as we do,” Bryan reads.
The season five premiere of “Breaking Bad” starts Sunday, July 15th at 10/9c on AMC. Be there!
