Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium Creator Feels Bad for Walter White

Besides setting up what will definitely be a climatic series finale, last week's Breaking Bad also unleashed a sick burn on the film Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium. So how did the film's director-writer Zach Helm respond? With complete agreement. "Having myself endured the ignominy of watching the Technicolor train-wreck that is Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium multiple times every day for over a year, I can attest to it being the perfect Kafka-esque Hell for a character of such moral ambiguity as Walter White," he told TMZ. Adding that Walter's two copies of it "is exactly two more copies than are allowed in my house." Poor Mr. Magorium, not even his creator finds him wonderful.
