The new season of "Breaking Baddebuts Sunday night at 10 on AMC, and it's terrific. I'm going to publish my review tomorrow, but I wanted to kick off four days of "Breaking Bad"-related coverage with the first of the three video interviews I conducted when I was in Albuquerque a few months back, this one with one of the show's two reigning Emmy winners: Aaron Paul.

Aaron and I spoke about how the show's third season was full of big speeches for Jesse Pinkman, the Emmy experience, what was going through his mind as he shot the dramatic final scene of that season, and more. I hope you enjoy it, and I apologize in advance for my shoddy FlipCam cinematography. A show as gorgeous as "Breaking Bad" deserves better camerawork than I was able to provide, but hopefully the conversation's entertaining in spite of that. (Worse comes to worst, just listen while looking at pictures of lolcats.)
