"Breaking Bad" and "The Walking Dead" might have more in common than both being AMC hits. In fact, one fan theory goes so far as to suggest that the 2008 meth-centric drama is a prequel to the 2010 zombie series.

The theory has been floating around for years, but it just got a major boost thanks to Netflix. The streamer today dropped a new video that explores the possibility in-depth, showing just how "Breaking Bad" chemistry teacher-turned-drug kingpin Walter White could be linked to the "Walking Dead" zombie epidemic. It's not as far-fetched as you might think. Like any good theory, it offers compelling evidence, namely four surprising connections.

The theory isn't perfect, but there's enough there to make you wonder. All told, the video rates it a five out of 10 on believability, but it gets a perfect 10 when it comes to entertainment value.Watch the video to see if you're convinced.
