Breaking Bad finale review: Felina

The series finale is rarely the best episode of a show. The finale never ends the way you want it to; and after the hour finishes, there are no more minutes left to make it right. For the past year, really, we’ve been tweeting and chatting and speculating about all the ways Breaking Bad could... Read more »

Breaking Bad review, "Granite State"

(The above video is of me making some predictions for the final episode and talking more about Todd. My awesome Game of Thrones T-shirt was cut out of the video. For that I am truly sorry.) Landry (sorry, “Todd”) has always been a bit of a Marlo Stanfield for me. In case you’re unfamiliar with... Read more »

As I was happily going about my day yesterday morning, sitting down at the table to enjoy some breakfast while reading the newspaper, I encountered an article in the Chicago Tribune that really got under my skin.  It was an opinion piece written by Mary Schmich, called “Breaking bad on that TV show.”  You can...

Breaking Bad review, "Ozymandias"

Breaking Bad review, "Ozymandias"
“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!” – Percy Bysshe Shelley It’s gotten to the point where Walter White has lied so many times on Breaking Bad, that’s it’s almost impossible to recognize when he’s telling the truth. And it’s definitely gotten to the point where I... Read more »

Breaking Bad Review: "Rabid Dog"

Breaking Bad Review: "Rabid Dog"
I suppose one of the biggest problems that comes with being a murderous drug lord with a faulty moral compass is that people expect you to be able to break the law at the drop of a hat, as if it were it’s no big deal. Like, “Hey, Mr. Big Shot Heisenberg, you killed/hired hit... Read more »

Breaking Bad review, "Buried"

Breaking Bad review, "Buried"
Breaking Bad is all about forward momentum, and I’m loving every minute of it. One thing I’ve always respected about the Breaking Bad writers is that they know their endgame. They see the goal and they write toward it. There’s no wheel-spinning. Every single minute — every single second — of every single episode is... Read more »

Best Tweets from the Season Premiere of Breaking Bad
Lots of people had lots of things to say about Breaking Bad last night on Twitter. Really, hardly anyone was talking about anything else. Once in a while a True Blood nod would sneak in there, but that’s about it. Folks were chatting about what was happening in the episode, how they needed to get... Read more »

Breaking Bad Premiere Recap: Blood Money

Breaking Bad Premiere Recap: Blood Money
Walt’s cancer is back. It’s probably just lung cancer redux; but if it’s revealed to be a brain tumor, then I’m about to look 95% less ridiculous than I did a year ago. Tonight’s episode started In The Future, where Walt has hair and a beard and an old Cadillac. His house stands empty, fenced... Read more »

The Walking Dead Recap: When the Dead Come Knocking

The Walking Dead Recap: When the Dead Come Knocking
Sunday night’s The Walking Dead episode was the penultimate episode of the first half of Season 3. AMC confuses me. My new rule of thumb is if there are more than two months between season halves, the shows don’t belong to the same season. Sorry, Breaking Bad. If I have to watch an old episode... Read more »

'Homeland' Premiere Recap - The Smile

'Homeland' Premiere Recap - The Smile
After the show aired last night, John said that the Season 2 Homeland premiere was just like any action movie sequel — bigger and fancier and just trying to get everybody back to status quo. I don’t disagree, but I also don’t begrudge it that. All of this was inevitable. Carrie was going to have to... Read more »
