Admit it: you totally enjoyed watching The Price is Right during the days you were stuck at home because you were sick. I don’t blame you; asides from good ol’ Ellen Degeneres, day time programming is more or less lacking. It’s cheesy and tacky, but you gotta admit, it’s lots of damn fun.
Whether you were shouting prices at Bob Barker or Drew Carey, you’ve always imagined being plucked out of the crowd to become a contestant on the show. But just in case those dream do become reality, here are some examples of the kind of contestants you should be or hope to never become.
The Best Contestant
While he probably spent hours studying the show, he’s never cocky. He’s just excited to be there cheering alongside the likes of some college co-eds and retired grandmas.
The Worst Contestant
Don’t be that person who wastes Bob Barker’s time because he had to tell you how to play the game.
The Luckiest Contestant
Apparently, the show pretty much pulls out all the stops when it’s your birthday.
Aaron Paul on the Price is Right
After he lost, he decided that becoming Jesse Pinkman was a better career path.
If you’re addicted to Downton Abbey like I am, then you’d be impressed to see a spin-off of the English series combining elements of the science-drama “Breaking Bad.”
Amid reports that First Lady Michelle Obama got to see the third season of the British show before everyone else in the U.S., Comedian Stephen Colbert was so mad that he had the cast of “Downton Abbey” perform scenes for the upcoming season of “Breaking Bad.”
This is absolutely hilarious but Michelle Obama is just doing what we’ve all been doing anyways. Considering the fact that season 3 of Downton Abbey is already finished in the UK, fans of Downton in North America have probably been finding alternative ways to watch the show instead of waiting for it to air on PBS in January.
Because really, you can’t expect us to wait that long!!
Taylor Swift and Breaking Bad are two things I can’t imagine colliding. It’s like a gazelle and lion being friends. Or Ashley Tisdale playing a prostitute on Sons of Anarchy (oh wait, this ACTUALLY happened).
Anyway, this parody by Teddie Films re-writes the lyrics to Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” from the perspective of Walt and Jesse (“We Are Never Ever Gonna Cook Together.” Relive their disagreements and outside troubles with Goodman and Skyler.
If you didn’t watch the last season, these lyrics should be enough to bring you up to speed. Walking Dead next? Please and thank you.
Watch it here:
If Breaking Bad was a sitcom there would be a lot more saxophone-heavy music, slapstick fails and studio audience giggles. Walt would be the intelligent, stoic patriarch and Skyler would be the slighly crazy, off-the-rocker mom. Every episode would make light of serious domestic disputes that every nuclear family goes through and would end with everyone laughing and saying “oh, aren’t we silly? Let’s make up.” And I would still totally watch it.
From recalling his romantic proposal to his now fiancé in GQ magazine to bad high school yearbook photos (see below), actor Actor Aaron couldn’t be further from his drug dealing character Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad (at least from what I’ve seen of him on internet). He’s kind of like the internet’s magical elf as he continues to either provide laughs via twitter or with embarrassing past commercial gigs. Here are some of Paul’s top embarrassing moments that just make us want to love him even more.
1. His high school yearbook photo
^My sentiments exactly.
2. Corn Pops Commercial
Gimme my Corn Pops, bitch.
3. On The Price is Right
Skip to 6:08 for the goods. Jay Leno may have dug it up, but it’s still hilarious to think my Grandma was watching Aaron Paul before he became Jesse Pinkman.
4. Yet another high school yearbook photo
Thank god for the nineties for this gem.
5. in a Pizza Commerical
I’m in awe of everything Bryan Cranston does. From playing the lovable father on Malcolm in the Middle to the badass Walter White on Breaking Bad, this man can literally become anything when he’s in front of the camera. So what better way to conclude the first half of Breaking Bad’s fifth season than with a lovely tribute to the show’s protagonist? Like Aaron Paul’s character exclaims, Bryan Cranston really is such “a goddamn artist!”
As a person who grew up reading Harry Potter, I’m still in denial the series is over. But when I snap back to reality and realize that J.K Rowling is probably never going to write another novel relating to Harry Potter, I begin to reread the series and rewatch all the films in a row. But of course, if you don’t have as much time as me, perhaps this 13 minute tribute will just be epic enough for you to relive the series. But I’ll have to warn you. Tears might be inevitable.
I’m obsessed with the AMC show Breaking Bad and I constantly try to convince my friends to watch it. Instead of inadequately explaining why watching an ex-high school teacher cook meth is awesome I’m just going to play them this video of a chirpy German dude explaining why Breaking Bad is great. He writes on YouTube: “I love this show Breaking Bad very much. I tell to you now my Reasons.”
If you didn’t think the show was great before, he’s probably going to convince you otherwise.
That was the question asked by Put Zombies Back On TV. AMC dressed up some willing New Yorkers as zombies and had them stumble through the city among unknowing pedestrians. The roamers look pretty convincing, with fake blood streaming down their faces and yellowed teeth. They even got a couple screams.
Dish recently dropped AMC’s programming, including The Walking Dead, Mad Men and Breaking Bad. So they did the experiment to prove that zombies don’t belong on the street, but they do belong on television. Let’s put them back there people!
