Aaron Paul's two-minute recap of 'Breaking Bad' is brilliant
It's been a long time since the Breaking Bad finale aired, but the show is still thought of as one of the best TV series ever made.
We've had a spin-off to whet our appetite: Better Call Saul, which shows how Irish conman Slippin' Jimmy McGill became Heisenberg's consigliere. But now a new movie, entitled ''El Camino'', is about to drop on Netflix, which will allegedly show what happened to Walter's partner-in-crime, Jessie Pinkman after the conclusion of Breaking Bad's main story arc.
Watch Aaron Paul's hilarious recap in the video below:
The movie is due to air on the streaming service on October 11, and it's just had its premiere. The early reviews have been pretty favourable, with critics lavishing praise on Aaron Paul's performance. In anticipation of the movie, Aaron Paul reserved a seat on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about the standalone film.
Watch the trailer for El Camino below:
Commenting on the impetus behind the movie in a recent interview with British newspaper The Guardian, Aaron stated: "People were just so passionate, and wanted answers. Asking when the next series of Breaking Bad was gonna be – you can put that dream away – wanting to know what happens to Jesse. And what happened to Jesse."
He continued: "A lot of people will always see me as Jesse, and I take that as a compliment. The show was a game-changer ... There are roles I jumped on to after Breaking Bad, just to try to move the needle in one direction or another. I get sent a lot of leading-man stuff and it doesn’t excite me. My heart is in gritty, independent filmmaking."

I personally can't wait to check out this movie when it finally drops on Netflix: I have a feeling it's going to be something really special...
