Spend all weekend stuck on the highway heading to either the beach or the mountains along with seemingly everyone else with a car? Here's what you missed on TV.
So That's How Magnets Work
On the fifth-season premiere of Breaking Bad, Walt (Bryan Cranston) may be a cold-blooded murderer now, but he's still a high school science teacher at heart. So when he and Jesse (Aaron Paul) need to wipe a hard drive that's held in a locked and guarded evidence room, Walt knows how to construct a giant magnet that gets the job done in spectacular fashion. As dark as this show is at heart, I do love the perfectly-placed physical comedy beats of scenes like this.
A Less Threatening Aaron Paul
Speaking of America's favorite meth provider, Aaron Paul appeared on The Tonight Show, where Jay Leno thoroughly humiliated the actor by showing extended clips from a 12-year-old episode of The Price Is Right that featured a 20-year-old Paul -- looking unnervingly baby-faced -- being unapologetically uncool in his bid to win a Showcase Showdown. (Spoiler alert: he overbids by $312.) It was adorable.
The Bachelorette Calls Out The Bad Boy
On the annual pre-finale reunion episode of The Bachelorette, designated jerk Kalon (that's not even a name, dude, that's a type of cheap petroleum-based synthetic fabric) tried to act like he was sorry for referring to bachelorette Emily's daughter as "baggage" during the show. To her credit, Emily calmly pointed out that he had thoughtlessly and humorlessly repeated the offending line on Twitter only days before. I swear, it's like some people don't know that others can read their social media presence.
Those Hantz Boys Again
Was the Hantz family raised in a laboratory to provide readymade villains for CBS reality shows? Willie, brother of most hated Survivor player ever Russell Hantz, was firmly ensconced as Head of Household on Big Brother, with enough accrued power to possibly changed the entire shape of the game, until he unthinkingly did a mocking, lisping impersonation of gay housemate Wil that immediately turned every single other person on the show against him. This just isn't the brightest family, is it?
Gunnar's Death Rage
On the last proper season of Project Runway, hilariously-named young designer Gunnar Deatherage was one of four contestants cut on the first day. He's back again this season, claiming that he's grown as a designer and a person. But apparently, he's grown into a catty little hater, because he immediately singles out fellow contestant Christopher as a target. However, everything he projects onto the talented and perfectly nice-seeming Christopher -- arrogance, condescension, obnoxiousness -- is painfully, obviously true of Gunnar himself.
