Breaking Bad

So how’s this for a premise? A high school science teacher finds out he has cancer and decides to make Meth to pay for his treatment and to set his family up for life.
Wait it gets better it takes place in Albuquerque (Which if you ever spent any time there you know it is basically full of tweakers), and his brother in law is a DEA agent. I know, I gotta see this it’s right up my alley. The ad said Season Premiere even better.

Now the downside, Season 2, What?! Whatever I already set my DVR to catch it, Lets see if it is worth it. YES it is. After watching it I had to get the rest of the series, and I have to tell you it’s good, real good. The camera work is wonderful. The characters are all twisted. The questions they raise is worth the uncomfortable moments and it is a nice distraction from Vampire Wars on facebook. Friend me and join my clan, and if you have gotten a Sorority Life invitation from me know it is my wife and not me. And know this too if I were playing it like my wife does there’s nothing wrong with that.

Just set your DVR’s to watch Breaking Bad.

I love Joss Whedon since I found out about his art. Firefly is the most entertaining thing I never knew about on television. When I watched it on DVD I kept exclaiming, “Why didn’t I know about this?” So here’s my place on making sure the boat doesn’t get missed again. Dollhouse Fox Friday nights set your DVR’s.

Dennik asked, “It’s not another Alias is is?” well 2 of the three episodes do have disguises of sorts but getting dressed up isn’t really the point. The next episode is the “let’s be bad guys” episode and Echo goes blank during the operation. That never happened on Alias (well I don’t know that for sure I never watched that show).
If you have missed the shows they are on, they even have some bonus material.
So without spoiling too much
Episode 1 Ghost is a kidnap negotiation that doesn’t go perfect
Episode 2 Target is The Most Dangerous Game retelling
Episode 3 Stage Fright is a singing bodyguard to protect a singer who wants to die.
I have watched all the episodes several times paying attention to what is going on in the background. there’s some subtle stuff, but mostly it feels like we are just warming up to what’s to come.
