A lot of things went down in last week's episode of Breaking Bad—and in the interest of protecting those who haven't seen it, I'm not going to talk about any of them. Just watch the episode! That said, this isn't exactly a spoiler, but it was the source of a joke in last week's drama-packed installment: Early on in the episode, Walt finds two copies of the DVD for Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, that shitty Dustin Hoffman- Natalie Portman-starring movie from 2007 about a wacky toy story owner or something like that.
"I'm not much of a movie guy," the owner of the DVD explained at the time, which was pretty weird since, surely, even people who aren't into movies wouldn't go out and purchase the same film twice? But hey, we let it go, because a lot of other shit happened after that scene.
TMZ, apparently, couldn't let it go—and they decided to contact the actual director of Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, Zach Helm, to get a comment on how he felt about the movie being the bud of a joke on the best show on television. Turns out, he didn't really care, because he hates the movie too. Go figure. From TMZ:
Zach Helm, the writer/director of "Magorium" tells TMZ ... "Having myself endured the ignominy of watching the Technicolor train-wreck that is 'Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium' multiple times every day for over a year, I can attest to it being the perfect Kafka-esque Hell for a character of such moral ambiguity as Walter White."
Zach also said as good as "Breaking Bad" is ... the plot line of ANYONE having 2 DVDs of that movie is simply unbelievable. As he put it, "That is exactly two more copies than are allowed in my house."
New Breaking Bad ending theory: Walt is arrested, and forced to watch both copies of Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium until he can't tell what's real and what's fake. End of show.
