• The Hollywood Reporter round-up of TV’s famous affairs includes Skyler and Ted, noting that “I.F.T.” was “a particularly exciting episode for the Skyler-Ted-Walter love triangle and one for the Breaking Bad history books.”
• In a bid to pair classic literature and TV, Vulture matches up Breaking Bad with Albert Camus because of a Camus quote about betrayal that “could function as a one-sentence recap of the episode, or even the whole series.”
• Wetpaint considers Gus one of several TV characters who “faced truly disgusting and/or disturbing ends.”

• Previewing Crackle’s SuperMansion, JoBlo spotlights a trailer and notes, “If you’re a fan of Robot Chicken, I think it’d be a safe bet to say that SuperMansion will also be to your liking, but even if you’re not, there’s still a lot to like with a voice cast that includes Bryan Cranston” et al. One of Philly.com‘s TV picks this week is SuperMansion.
• Deadline reports that FOX’s Lucifer has cast Kevin Rankin as a series regular.
