The Word: Celebs react to the ‘Breaking Bad’ premiere
Full disclosure: I am still on the first season of “Breaking Bad.” It’s really good, you guys. I hope Walt gets his priorities straight and focuses on what’s important: teaching high school.
While I am still in the relatively halcyon days of Walt’s early decline, the rest of the civilized world is going nuts for whatever happened on the show last night. (A really difficult AP chemistry exam, I’ll bet.) Many of the critically acclaimed show’s high-profile fans took to Twitter to vent, celebrate and berate those of us who haven’t seen it yet.
Questlove is such a dedicated fan he’s been binge watching last night’s episode: “‘tread lightly’ rhymes with ‘hug me…’ #BreakingBad (4x’s since 9pm last night).”
“If you didn’t see breaking bad tonight, tomorrow you better take your spoilers like a man.” Mindy Kaling dishes out some tough love.
Krysten Ritter’s awe has made her succinct: “Woah #breakingbad.”
And Ben Stiller’s favorite part of the episode was Badger’s “Star Trek” spec script. “The Star Trek discussion in Breaking Bad was almost too much to take. Never thought “Quatloos” would be mentioned on Breaking Bad. #toogood”
That’s a lot of attention for a quiet family drama about recovering from cancer.
