The Word: Watch little kids retell 'Breaking Bad' in song

"Breaking Bad: The Musical" is definitely in my top ten inappropriate kid reenactments. Mostly for the little boy who plays Jesse, who is a delight.

Look, I know how this works. I know that any link that contains "Kids reenact" or "The Musical!" is just cynical, derivative click bait. But I always click. Because you know what? It's always amazing. Especially when what they're reenacting is "Breaking Bad."

This one is definitely in my Top 10 inappropriate kid reenactments. Mostly for the little boy who plays Jesse, who is, as you might expect, a delight. But let's not forget the cheery girl singing her heart out as a chunk of meth (or blue rock candy, in this kid-safe version). She's going places.

As the series winds down, with the first of eight final episodes airing this Sunday on AMC, showrunner Vince Gilligan told audiences that ending now was the right decision.

“Every story has its beginning, middle and end,” he said. “This [show] was not designed to go on forever. It needed to end.”

The panelists were tight-lipped on the final eight episodes, only saying that the third-from-last episode “is gonna knock your f—ing socks off,” as Gilligan told it.

Bryan Cranston, who has won three consecutive Emmys for his role as Walter White (and is nominated for a fourth this year), told audience members that he wanted to “lift my leg up and spray [Gilligan] with my scent” when he read the pilot because he was so interested in getting the role.
