** They're not the first subreddit to do something like this. After the much reviled eighth season of ''Series/{{Dexter}}'', someone posted a discussion about [[https://www.reddit.com/r/Dexter/comments/1mh0zu/official_breaking_bad_episode_discussion_s05e14/ an episode of ''Series/BreakingBad'' that aired around the same time on r/Dexter. It quickly caught on with everyone with even the ''mods'' getting in on it, to the point of having the sub getting a new CSS. It's currently the second highest upvoted post of ''all time'' on that subreddit, even to this day.
