Dustin has been doing a great job covering the Upfronts this week (CBS, NBC, ABC, and Fox), so I’m gonna help him out by taking care of The CW. Here we go: “Gossip Girl,” Monday; that show with Summer from “The O.C.,” Tuesday…and nope, I can’t even pretend to pretend to care. The synopsis for one of their new shows begins, “After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen…”
Instead, let’s talk about “Breaking Bad” because any excuse to talk about “Breaking Bad” is a good one, and now I really want “Breaking Bad” back on TV. Especially because Jesse Plemons, a.k.a. Crucifictorious frontman Landry Clarke on “Friday Night Lights,” has joined the cast. According to TV Line, he’ll play “Todd, a dependable, innocuous, working-class guy [who] may not be what he appears to be…because he kills Walt with a lead pipe and then kicks the game-winning field goal.” I may have added that last part, but seriously, “may not be what he appears to be”? I expect my “Breaking Bad” press releases to be as good as the show itself.
Or at least as good as this screenshot of Landry checking out Tyra.
