Enraged by Michelle Obama’s ability to get her hands on the upcoming season of Downton Abbey before anyone else, Stephen Colbert set out to prove that he was equally as powerful and could also get his hands on a rare TV show. Colbert proved his power when he debuted the series Breaking Abbey during his show The Colbert Report.
Breaking Abbey placed Hugh Bonneville, Jim Carter and Rob James-Collier from Downton Abbey in the illegal and often dangerous situations found on Breaking Bad. After brewing up a batch of the “black chamomile crank,” the men sell it to a gang member named Spider. What makes Breaking Abbey so special has to be hearing lines like “Soon Downton will be kicking it with mad bitches and Benjamins,” in the sophisticated English accents fans have grown accustomed to hearing from the Downton Abbey cast.
