Aaron Paul channels Jesse Pinkman in profane new 'YB' iPhone app

Breaking Bad might have ended more than a year ago, but Jesse Pinkman lives on in a new iPhone application. And no, he’s not selling drugs. Instead, he’s offering what the app describes as “colorful greetings for you and your friends.”

Basically, Aaron Paul is finally ready to call the entire world “bitch.” In the new app, appropriately titled “YB,” Paul spices up your conversations with phrases ranging from the classic, “Yo, bitch,” to “I love you, bitch.” So really, it works for all occasions.

'Frozen' meets 'Breaking Bad' with 'Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?'

Breaking Bad never really had a full theme song, and now we know why: It was simply waiting for Frozen to come along so that it could find and borrow the right melody. Thanks to the folks at Animeme, the perfect collaboration has finally materialized in the form of “Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?”

The Disney-esque mash-up serves as a quick recap of the series, from the RV days to Gus’ demise and every fly in between. Sure, there are minor details (and Nazis) missing, but can you really fault a video that works in Jane’s overdose?

Apparently Heisenberg is no match for a Florida mom. The Associated Press reported Toys “R” Us has stopped selling Breaking Bad dolls, in the wake of a petition calling for them to be removed.

“Let’s just say, the action figures have taken an ‘indefinite sabbatical,'” Toys “R” Us said in a statement EW obtained. The petition, which garnered over 9,000 signatures, called the company’s “decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys…a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values.” READ FULL STORY

For Breaking Bad fans, an action figure of Heisenberg carrying a gun might sound pretty cool. But when said action figure is sold on the same shelf as a Barbie at Toys “R” Us, well—odds are Skyler White wouldn’t be too happy about it.

Susan Myers, who started a petition on Change.org, is campaigning to get the Breaking Bad action figures removed from shelves. As Myers wrote, “Their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values.” READ FULL STORY

'Godzilla' has a 'Breaking Bad' Easter egg

Even though Breaking Bad ended almost a year ago, pop culture is still finding ways of elongating the life of Walter White. This week, /Film noticed a tiny sliver of an Easter egg from the title sequence for Godzilla, in which Bryan Cranston’s title card has a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it reference to the meth king before the words are redacted from the screen.

Aaron Paul shares details of his 'Breaking Bad' scavenger hunt

The 2014 Emmys were a day of celebration for many actors, showrunners, writers, and other TV folk. But for Breaking Bad‘s crew, it was the final stop on their journey—which came long after they’d originally said goodbye to their show. So to celebrate the series one final time, Aaron Paul decided to throw one of his infamous scavenger hunts in L.A. place just hours before the awards show. He told fans via social media where they could find Breaking Bad memorabilia—and in at least one case, a Breaking Bad actor holding said memorabilia.

On Thursday, Paul went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the hunt. It all started when the actor walked into what’s probably the world’s coolest closet—full of scripts, Jesse Pinkman’s license plate (THE CAPN!), a Lily of the Valley plant (poor Brock!), and more—then scattered the goods around L.A. On the day of the hunt, he sent thousands of fans to a local IHOP, shamed a few cheaters, then forced a guy with asthma to chase him through a park. We’d like to think Jesse’s doing the same right now. Well, exactly the same—but at least running free.

Ranking the Emmy acceptance speeches

The Emmys honor the best performances on television, but the telecast is all about celebrating the best speeches. Here’s how we called it:

1. Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston, Lead Actor in a Drama Series: It was Cranston’s night. He had the perfect amount of humility (“Even I thought about voting for Matthew”), humor (“I love you, especially those scenes in bed,” he told Anna Gunn) and inspiration (find your passion, Sneaky Petes).  READ FULL STORY
