It’s safe to say that we all wanted Breaking Bad to run for a tad longer and even Bryan Cranston thinks the same.

The star of the show who played the role of Walter White has told reporters that he would have liked to have seen the show run for a few more episodes.

At the premiere of the No Half Measures documentary, Cranston told press and media that he wanted the show to run for 10 to 12 more episodes, but it was better to come to a close early whilst fans can still say that they miss the show.

“I’m kind of sad that we don’t have another year to go, because I really thought that maybe we could do another 10 or 12 episodes,” he explained “But it’s better to be finished early and proud so that the fans and us say, ‘I really miss that show’ as opposed to saying, ‘Is this show still on?’ It’s better to walk away at a high”.

Speaking about the finale of he show, Cranston added: “We should have gotten Huell out of the safe house.

“I really think, all joking aside, Aaron Paul’s teeth stayed too pearly white and pristine for the six years. Your teeth don’t look that good if you smoke meth, or get your ass kicked that many times”.

Meanwhile, an alternate ending to Breaking Bad features on the box set that was released on November 26 and although it’s not exactly in the same vein as the actual finale, it’s hilarious.

The premise of the alternate ending is that the whole series has been a bad dream and Bryan Cranston’s Walter White never was a meth dealer.

Cranston reprises his ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ role as he wakes up from quite a terrifying nightmare. The alternate ending sees him recounting the bad dream to his wife Lois, who is played by Jane Kaczmarek.

He says: “I just had the scariest dream! You don’t understand, I was this meth dealer. Yeah, I was this world class chemist and I cooked this ultra-pure meth amphetamine. There was this guy who never spoke, he just rang this bell all the time.

“Then there was this other guy, he was a policeman or DEA agent and I think he was my brother or something – he looked like the guy from the shield. Then there was this other little guy who was a man-child-kid who always looked like he was wearing his older brother’s clothes”.

He goes on to explain that his “man child kid” used to always say the “B word”.

“Then there was me,” he continues “I had a shaved head and a goatee ad I wore a black hat and the only thing that made sense in the whole dream was that I still walked around in my underwear”.

“I knew this was goin to happen. Suddenly you grow a beard and you think you’re Osama Bin Laden. Wasn’t I there to tell you to knock it off?” Lois asks him.

“No, some other woman did that,” he adds “I was married to this tall, beautiful blonde”.

After he unloads his problems on Lois, Walter slowly takes off his pants and starts “poking” her in the back… the camera then slowly pans to a black hat sat on the chair in the bedroom.
