I love product placement when it is used in the right context. On Breaking Bad’s Episode “Problem Dog,” Jesse Pinkman is seen playing Rage (a multi-platform game due out on Oct. 4) with images spliced in of when he shot Gale.

Rage and Breaking Bad both share gritty and violent themes, so the connection there is drawn easily. Literally, in the game and Jesse are both fighting against their demons. This is another turning point for Jesse in the show’s plot, where he seems to be changing again and cleaning up and getting away from the drug use.
