Truth be told, it doesn't take all that much to get Breaking Bad fans up and at 'em where excitement for the esteemed drama is concerned. But this is something else entirely, as Aaron "Former Jesse Pinkman" Paul took to Twitter to share the new trailer for BoJack Horseman Season 4, and it kicked off a short back-and-forth with fellow Netflix series Jessica Jones, which of course stars Krysten "Former Jane Margolis" Ritter. It's not exactly a heartbreaking reunion or anything, but it was more than enough to get Breaking Bad fans pumped. Here's how it began.
Yeah! Not only was this a sweet-ass co-mingling of currently airing Netflix shows that star Breaking Bad vets, but it was also an extremely smart and on-point response from the Jessica Jones Twitter page. For some context, the BoJack Horseman Season 4 trailer has one particularly glaring absence for most of its runtime, as the titular horse only shows up for the final seconds, and the trailer makes it abundantly clear that he skipped town after the events of the Season 3 finale, and hasn't been back since. One would think that Aaron Paul's Todd would be happy not to get told to "shut up" on an hourly basis.
And so when Aaron Paul himself took to social media to get the search going, the streaming service's most badass private detective weighed in by offering some assistance, which Paul was quite happy to acknowledge and accept. And it wasn't long before the official BoJack page chimed in. Many Twitter users jumped at the chance to wax fantastical about there being some kind of crossover between the emotionally poignant animated series and the Marvel superhero drama, but the Breaking Bad fanbase was almost immediately on full display.
After all, Aaron Paul and Krysten Ritter shared one of the most tragic relationships of any major TV drama during their relatively short time together on Breaking Bad. Without going into details, let's just say that if BoJack Horseman was guilty of doing what Bryan Cranston's Walter White did, then nobody involved here would be looking too hard for him.
Sigh. That wasn't something we were eager to relive in our memories, so let's bounce our mental state back to the more enjoyable topic at hand. Even though Krysten Ritter isn't responsible for the Jessica Jones Twitter page, whoever was running it had the pop culture wherewithal to chime in at the perfect time. And even when the "conversation" drifted away from Aaron Paul, as seen below, it was still true to the characters of the Netflix shows. (Although Jesse and Jane were also known for their benders.)
We likely won't be seeing Jesse and Jane together again on Better Call Saul Season 4 or beyond, but you can catch BoJack Horseman Season 4 when it premieres on Netflix on Friday, September 8, at 12:01 a.m. PT. And you can also catch Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones cracking skulls on The Defenders, which came out not long ago. And if you're needing more shows to catch up with in the meantime, head to our 2017 Netflix schedule and our fall premiere schedule.
