Since most entertainment news outlets are going to pretty much remain Breaking Bad fan sites until the show ends, let’s keep piling on the news!
Entertainment Weekly got from creator Vince Gilligan a list of plots and storylines that, for one reason or another, didn’t make the cut. While they almost all sound fun, one of the most impressive qualities of the show (sometimes) is the restraint it exercises and the subdued drama that comes part and parcel with it.
In fact, some of the most scrutinized moments have been the most fantastic, including the giant magnets, the train heist, and the nursing home incident. Adding crossbows, meth sold through a pharmacy, and Marie shooting a parcel deliveryman just doesn’t seem to add much to the show, beyond instant gratification. Take a look.
