10 years later and TV hasn't fully recovered from what Breaking Bad delivered. Another milestone that's hard to believe is that Walter White was first introduced to us 10 years ago today, but it's true and to celebrate, Aaron Paul took to Twitter to share a 1-minute video clip that covers the entire series, thanking fans from all over the world. From its opening moments, you knew Breaking Bad was unlike anything you had ever seen on television before. And ten years after its debut, it remains one of the most innovative TV dramas in the history of Television.
Aaron Paul took to Twitter to celebrate that anniversary of the show that launched his career into the stratosphere while cementing a life-long friendship with Bryan Cranston. Series creator Vince Gilligan created a new type of anti-hero with Cranston's Walter White, a character who you love and then hate and then love all over again. The show rarely missed, which is why it's still looked upon as groundbreaking. Aaron Paul had this to say.
"10 years ago today Mr. White and Jesse Pinkman decided to start cooking crystal meth. Thank you, Vince, for coming up with this crazy concept. Here's a quick video of our journeys. Happy 10th anniversary."
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan famously sought to show how Mr. Chips could turn into Scarface, which makes references to the beloved British schoolteacher in the novella Goodbye, Mr. Chips and the drug kingpin in Brian De Palma's famous gangster movie, Scarface. In Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston's Walter White is a slightly overweight, innocent Mr. Chips-like high school chemistry teacher (who has to sell drugs to pay for lung cancer treatment), but over the course of the series, he slowly morphs into a meth kingpin, essentially the Scarface of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Never has a drama TV show continued a story and stayed true all of the way through with the goal set at the very beginning.
In other Breaking Bad news, Sony has started a YouTube channel dedicated to the iconic series. The official channel will assimilate and optimize thousands of existing video clips and content, drawing from official show footage, fans' user-generated content, and newly created themed pieces, giving fans that subscribe to the channel the opportunity to delve even deeper into the world of Breaking Bad and even contribute. Vince Gilligan recently sat down with Chris Hardwick, host of Talking Bad, to discuss the new YouTube channel while going over some pivotal scenes of the show's history.
