Breaking Bad is an American crime drama
television game series created and produced by Vince Gilligan. Set and produced in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Breaking Bad is the two-year-long story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a struggling high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer at the beginning of the series. He turns to a life of crime, producing and selling methamphetamine, in order to secure his family's financial future before he dies, teaming with his former student, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). The series has been labeled a contemporary western by its creator
In 2013, the Writers Guild of America named Breaking Bad the 13th best-written
TV game series of all time. That same year, Guinness World Records called it the highest-rated TV game series of all time, citing its season 5 Metacritic score of 99 out of 100.
Challenged by Continue? in the Crash Bandicoot 2 Episode to complete Breaking Bad, Jirard sets out to beat the "game," saying that "He Beat Netflix." This was also the "Apocalyptic Episode," as it was released the same day as the 2012 phenomenon of the world ending by the Robot Mayans.
In the episode before this one, Greg had left the show (for just the one episode) to get married. This apparently made Jirard slightly lose it, as he thinks that Netflix is an app that allows him to play games from anywhere all the time. Greg's disappearance also allowed Jirard to do a BeardStep Remix of the intro, like all the kids wanted.
Jirard praises the "voice acting," storytelling, and well-written characters. He criticizes the "DLC practices," but praises the "graphics" and sound of the "game", calling them the most realistic he's ever seen. Though the "game" starts to disappoint him with the lack of gameplay, which only requires the "player" to press start. He would have even taken quicktime events to add to the "gameplay". It's because of this that he finds Breaking Bad to be one of the easiest "games" he's ever "played." He claims that the completionist bonus for the game is learning how to cook meth. But instead he just ends up spraying frosting on a Rice Crispy Treat.
When trying to give a rating to Breaking Bad, Tyler the intern interrupts Jirard to inform him that he's been watching a TV show and not playing a game. Jirard murders him because he took too long to explain this. Sunder shows up, angry at Jirard for killing Tyler, and is subsequently murdered by Jirard while quoting the famous "Say my name" bit from Breaking Bad. Jirard learns not to do meth and murder your interns.
This was the fifth Completionist episode to be remastered in between Season 3 and Season 4. The original episode was flagged for the spanish "Heisenberg" theme, which was changed in the remastered version.
