Have you heard the theory that Breaking Bad is a sequel to Malcolm in the Middle? There's also a prequel theory, but as this Reddit user points out, it's far more likely that Walt is not Hal but an older Malcolm. Consider: both characters are intelligent, stubborn, and manipulative; Hal’s father in Malcolm in the Middle is named Walter.
Not buying it? Well I hope you have a tarp to spread around you right now so as to save your furniture from brain-stains, because I am about to BLOW YOUR MIND. Forget the Malcolm in the Middle thing, here's the newest possibility: Breaking Bad is a prequel to The Walking Dead.
Before you laugh this off as another deranged theory dreamed up by a TV-obsessed fan, be aware that there is PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE.
Let's start with the image plenty of fans noticed back in season 2 of The Walking Dead: Merle's stash. What's that in the bottom of the bag? It's not Pop Rocks, that's for sure.
But wait there's more! How about the Dodge Challenger that Glenn was driving (like a BOSS) in season 1 of The Walking Dead? Kinda similar to the car Walt bought for his son on Breaking Bad, right?
Is it a coincidence that the general manager referenced in Breaking Bad was named Glenn? OR SOMETHING MORE??
Finally, Hitfix points out that when Daryl and Beth were drinking moonshine together just a few episodes ago, Daryl told a story about a drug dealer who almost shot his brother in front of him.
OH MY GOD CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE THIS HOW LONG HAS AMC BEEN MASTERFULLY WEAVING THESE STORIES TOGETHER I FEEL LIKE MY WORLD JUST IMPLODED SOMEONE GET ME A PAPER BAG TO BREATHE INTO HOLY SHI--
Okay, okay. It's a couple of network Easter eggs and what's likely a product placement from Dodge. Fine, be that way, killjoy. But it's fun to think about, right? I mean, what if the blue meth caused the zombie outbreak? Duuuuuuuuuuuuude.
Had you noticed any of the little crossover moments in these shows?
