'Breaking Bad' Writers Love 'Lost': Numbers, Lottery Tickets, Hatches, Flash-Forwards And Walt (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

We adore "Breaking Bad," and the show's recent nods to "Lost" -- intentional or not -- are beyond amazing.

With the final season of "Breaking Bad" (Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC) already featuring some flash-forwards to future Walt, this week's episode, "Buried," included a hatch, mysterious numbers and a lottery ticket. It was basically a dream come true for anyone who loves both shows. And that's not even mentioning the obvious Walt connection. (Waaaaaaalt!)

We loved it all so much, we mashed the moments up to see them side-by-side. Watch the video, above, to see for yourself.

Huffington Post TV critic Maureen Ryan joked about the many nods in her weekly recap, saying:

This episode featured both a hatch and a sequence of numbers. "Breaking Lost," anyone? (Maybe they've all been dead the whole time?)

And "Lost" co-showrunner Carlton Cuse tweeted his appreciation as well:

Carlton Cuse
I'm loving Breaking Bad -- they've got flash forwards, lottery numbers and people yelling, "Walt!!".

Watch our "Lost" and "Breaking Bad" mash-up, above, then tell us: Do you think the "Breaking Bad" writers were giving a tip of the TV hat to "Lost"?
