Aaron Paul commented: “I don’t get any Netflix by Breaking Bad, to be completely honest, and that seems crazy to me. “I think a lot of these streaming services know that they’ve been avoiding paying people a fair wage and now it’s time for them to take responsibility.”
Cranston explained that they chose Sony for their meeting on the picket line because the studio was behind the hit Breaking Bad, along with its spin-off projects, the AMC prequel Better Call Saul and the movie NetflixThe way.

In this reality, technology is so advanced that they can maintain contact with their families through androids called “replicas,” which are identical to them and reside on Earth. They can connect to and control these androids while they “sleep” in chambers built into their spaceship.
The performance of Aaron Paul stands out in this episode because at one point his character lends his “replica” to David so he can connect with the Earth and breathe some fresh air. So we see him playing two different people. However, we soon realize that this decision can lead to tragedy.
