In exactly seven days, Breaking Bad—the best television drama since The Wire—returns for the second half of its final season. To get you excited for what will sure be a crazy eight episodes, comedic duo Rhett & Link have uploaded a five-minute recap of the show done in the style of a middle school musical. You haven’t experienced the diabolical Heisenberg until you’ve seen him portrayed by a chubby preteen. 

A quick warning: The video contains spoilers. Then again, if you haven’t already watched seasons 1 through 5, fork over your Internet connection. You have no excuse.

This isn’t Rhett & Link’s first venture into summarizing popular films and shows in the form of a low-end musical production you’re forced to go to because your little cousin is playing Cactus No. 3. This year alone, they’ve summed up The Man of Steel and Star Trek.
