For five years, Ruben Preston, who describes himself as a somewhat average TV watcher, has listened to friends, family, and people on the internet rave about AMC's popular drama, Breaking Bad, which follows the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), who turns to producing and selling methamphetamine after being diagnosed with lung cancer. The show, which has been called the greatest in the history of television by some of its more enthusiastic supporters, was never of particular interest to Preston, who tells The Outhouse he prefers comedies and police procedurals. Citing lack of interest in the premise, not enough time to follow another weekly show, and not wanting to jump midway into a series he hasn't watched from the start, Preston has steadfastly refused to check out the show.
"I think I'll check it out," Preston announced in an exclusive interview with The Outhouse. "I'm finally ready to see what all the fuss is about."
What made him change his mind?
"Whenever I tell people I've never seen Breaking Bad, they freak out," Preston explained. "You would think I said I was born without a butthole and I can't take shits or something. They just go fucking insane, like they can't believe a person could be alive and not watch this show."
It is certainly difficult to avoid hearing talk of the popular program, especially over the last year, as fans geared up for the show's fifth season, which was split into two parts. But, somehow, Preston has managed to avoid spoilers.
"I have no idea what's going in the show," he told us. "Even though I had no real interest in watching it, I thought that maybe someday I might change my mind, if it stayed on the air. So I've diligently avoided any spoilers or news about the show."
"Now that I've decided to check out the next episode, I can jump right in fresh," he boasted excitedly. "After all this time, I'm actually looking forward to it."
When we last spoke with Preston, he was having trouble locating the show on his cable guide for next Sunday so he could program it into his DVR. We suggested he check out a recap of last night's episode online instead.
