When Bryan Cranston broke out in his dramatic role as Walter White in Breaking Bad, it was surprising not only because of the unique character, but also because Cranston was primarily known for playing the goofy dad Hal on the sitcom Malcolm in the Middle. As Breaking Bad neared its conclusion, people joked that the show was actually a prequel to Malcolm in the Middle, and Walt was living out his days in witness protection. Cranston has never shied away from poking fun at AMC’s Emmy-winning drama, and the upcoming Blu-ray for the final season includes a special feature where Breaking Bad decides to pull a Newhart. It’s delightful, and I’m glad Malcolm co-star Jane Kaczmarek was game for it.
