BREAKING BAD SPOILERS BELOW!!! AND BABYLON 5 ONES, FOR THAT MATTER!!!
The last episode features a hunt for Jesse (Aaron Paul) after he douses Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) house with gasoline but then mysteriously disappears before striking the flame. Walt and Saul (Bob Odenkirk) try to track Jesse down, going so far as to bug the homes of his sci-fi-loving friends. Sadly, the wire only picks up three hours of conversation “about something called Babylon 5.” Of course Badger and Skinny Pete watch B5. They may be meth-heads, but they have damn fine taste in television.
After the episode, Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski tweeted a challenge to fans:
Honestly, if fans want the original Babylon 5 back on the air as more than an obscure reference, then y'all need to get organized and loud.
