You might remember that I centered last Friday’s column on the “Should you watch Niners-Seahawks or Breaking Bad?” decision. Well, God ended up deciding for us — He decided to have a one-hour weather delay from 9:05 ET until 10:05 ET, allowing everyone to just watch the episode in real time. The poetic justice here: When AMC launched Breaking Bad in January 2008, it researched possible dates and settled on the Sunday after both NFL conference title games. It picked 10 p.m. thinking that it would be far-fetched for the second game (in this case, Packers-Giants) to stretch past that time. Basically, the second game would have to go into overtime. What happened? New York’s Lawrence Tynes missed the game-winning kick, the game stretched into overtime, and Breaking Bad’s premiere got crushed by what became the second-highest-rated telecast of 2008 (trailing only the Super Bowl).
Fast-forward five years to last Sunday: They’re showing an episode that creator Vince Gilligan deems the best of the series, only it’s going against a monster football game. And then, fate intervenes. Lightning. For an hour. Breaking Bad ends up with its most viewers ever, and it happens for its most important episode ever. Karma? Coincidence? Blind luck? You tell me."
This is just an interesting Breaking Bad factoid even if few to none of you on Tumblr care about football. (via frankbelloriley)
Breaking Bad is the most important thing in the world and nothing stops this train.
