Are Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead linked? One fan theory says they are

At first blush, and at pretty every blush thereafter and forevermore, the idea that two disparate shows such as Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead may be linked in any way, may seem more than a little farfetched.

Sure, they both take as a central idea the idea that humanity is more likely to tumble into an abyss of self-interest than elevate itself during times of existential crisis, something which can happen irregardless of the size of the backdrop, but that, on the face of it at least, looks to be about it.

Look again though as this impressively-argued, and beautifully-illustrated video from Netflix does, and the idea that the worlds of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) isn’t all that crazy after all.

It even has a bluish tinge to it, you might say.

But enough from me vagueposting about what it might all mean – let the good people of Netflix explain how it is that one man’s corrupting journey to provide for his family might quite possible be the progenitor for another man’s descent into undead hell.
