If you were trolling around the Twittersphere last night or had any interaction with the Internet whatsoever and are not a “Breaking Bad” fan, you probably found yourself wondering:
1) Since when is meth blue, and where can I get some?
2) Why are garage doors so exciting all of a sudden?
3) What’s so shocking about sitting on a toilet?
4) Spock eats blueberry pies?
Yes yes, whether we’re Team Walt or Team Jesse, we all know that we’re absolutely, positively, high on crystal blue persuasion crazy. As a wise Tweeter once said:
I don’t care if you’re black, green, blue, white or orange, BB has something to offer ANYBODY. Mexican fried chicken, car washes, drugs, babies, cancer, old western train scenes, money laundering, tighty whities, desert shootouts, and yes, even the occasional toilet revelation. You hooked yet? I was gonna throw in backstabbing, but I didn’t want to get too serious too fast.
The long-awaited premiere of the final season of AMC’s critically acclaimed show aired last night, and, in true "Breaking Bad" fashion, the Baddest across the world went blue with excitement and went all #teamwaltandjesse on the World Wide Web.
Some just couldn’t help themselves and got right to cooking to prepare for the big extravaganza. #methheads
Others took a more musical approach.
Jesse even has his own playlist!
Some left feeling optimistic about their financial futures.
There were those who realized that male pattern baldness is real life…
And those who were a little caught up in, well, other things.
Then all the fun and joy in making crystal meth quickly died down.
The most important inanimate objects in TV get well-deserved shout outs!
Wait where are the meth tweets? Oh right…
The world’s smartest minds churned out their brightest theories…
Am I forgetting something? Oh yeah, only THE MOST INTENSE ENDING TO A SEASON PREMIERE IN THE HISTORY OF TELEVISION.
Needless to say, last night the streets of America were covered in blue sprinkles and fake wads of cash and the next week will be one of the longest and most excruciating of the year for loyal followers of Walt and Jesse. Except for this guy:
Let the torches and angry mobs commence. Tread lightly my friend.
