George R.R. Martin is a big fan of Breaking Bad and he’s been inspired by the show to make his characters more evil. Right. Because the world of Westeros is just so lacking in the evil character department. He took to his blog to share his thoughts on the show saying,
“Amazing series. Amazing episode last night. Talk about a gut punch. Walter White is a bigger monster than anyone in Westeros. (I need to do something about that).”
Is it just me, or is the idea that George R.R. Martin is planning more evil a frightening thought? He then goes on to talk about each show’s chances for getting an Emmy.
This is the final season of BREAKING BAD. I think GAME OF THRONES may have a shot at upsetting BB for this year’s Emmy (only a shot, though, I think they are the clear favorite), which pits us against their previous season… but there’s no way in hell that anyone is going to defeat BREAKING BAD next year, when their last season is the one in contention,”
So, Breaking Bad is awesome and George R.R. Martin is bringing on the evil. It doesn’t matter who wins the Emmy, because at this rate, the fans win no matter who takes home the award.
