Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 13 Review

Breaking Bad
Season 5, Episode 13 – “To’hajiilee”
Directed by Michelle MacLaren
Written by George Mastras
Starring: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Laura Fraser, and Jesse Plemons
AMC
Air date: September 8, 2013

Full-on spoilers for this week’s action-packed Breaking Bad are below. You’ve been warned.

In his mind, the only thing that kept Walter White (Bryan Cranston) from fully descending into hell was a Batman-esque, one-premise code: Family was off-limits. For so long, Jesse (Aaron Paul) was considered family that Walt could never imagine sending him to Belize. He fought hard and long to make sure that Jesse ended up safe, but after last week’s episode that rule was broken and all bets were off. Jesse has always been far smarter than anyone ever gave him credit for and uses this to his advantage. I was half right last week when I said that Jesse would come for Walt at the car wash. So much of Walt’s motivation to cook was always about the money. There’s no way all that green would disappear.

Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 12 Rabid Dog

Breaking Bad
Season 5, Episode 12 – “Rabid Dog”
Directed and written by Sam Catlin
Starring: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, and Bob Odenkirk
AMC
Air Date: September 1, 2013

Quiet hours of Breaking Bad are eventful, but not in ways that are maybe as overt as more action-packed hours of the show. Having officially reached the halfway point in these last eight episodes, the series needed to take a break and regroup as the end game is continued to be pieced together as the threads between the show’s future and present begin to weave together like latticework.

SPOILERS for Episode 5.12 of Breaking Bad.

What’s On Hank and Marie’s Bookshelf On ‘Breaking Bad’? (Photo)

Marie Schrader (Betsy Brandt) in Season 5 Episode 12 Breaking Bad  Photo by Ursula Coyote/AMC

On Breaking Bad, the White house where Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and his family reside isn’t very decorative. The inside is quite plain, having an almost 1970’s vibe to it with its shag carpet and dark wood paneling, while in contrast Hank (Dean Norris) and Marie (Betsy Brandt) Schrader’s home is brighter and decorated with lots of purple, obviously Marie’s favorite color. Also, while Walt is the scholar among them, having been a chemistry teacher and scientist before becoming a meth-cooking drug lord, his home isn’t filled in books, yet Hank and Marie’s living room has a massive bookcase brimming with various titles. We’ve seen this bookcase over and over again through the five seasons of the AMC series, but in last night’s episode titled “Rabid Dog,” we finally got a good glimpse of the items on the Schrader bookshelves.

One of the items prominently stacked among the many books was the complete series DVD box set for HBO’s Deadwood. Off to the left side were also several Stephen King books, including Four Past Midnight.

Check out a photo here below (minor spoiler) of the bookcase and see if you can figure out what titles are there; you can also watch the “Inside the Episode” video here below, which includes the bookcase scene. Note, both the photo and video contains SPOILERS for the episode if you haven’t seen it.

Breaking Bad episode 509

We’ve reached fever pitch with Breaking Bad now that the popular AMC show is heading into its very last episodes, leading up to the series finale. Everyone is dying to know how this series, about Walter White, a mild-mannered cancer-stricken chemistry teacher turned crystal meth cooker, will end. Theories have flooded the internet and fans are searching for clues in the most innocent of things.

The stars of the series are, of course, being asked about the finale in interviews and everywhere else they turn. Because he’s sick of everyone asking him about it, Dean Norris, who plays Walt’s DEA agent brother-in-law Hank, decided to make a video that reveals how it all ends.

Check out the video here below, courtesy of Funny Or Die.

Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 11 Confessions Review

Breaking Bad
Season 5, Episode 11 – “Confessions”
Directed by Michael Slovis
Written by Gennifer Hutchison
Starring: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, and Jesse Plemons.
AMC
Air Date: August 25, 2013

Queue up your Usher and get ready as we spill some Confessions on this week’s episode of Breaking Bad.

SPOILERS…

Since the start of the show, Breaking Bad has continually played with our expectations of how events should occur. Few things often happen in a manner that we predict they will happen (which is fitting, considering the protagonist of the show named his alter ego after a principle that deals so heavily in uncertainty). When Walt (Bryan Cranston) sits down for his second “confession” of the hour, we think he’s finally doing the right thing.

Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 10 Buried Review

Breaking Bad
Season 5, Episode 10 – “Buried”
Directed by Michelle MacLaren
Written by Thomas Schnauz
Starring: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Laura Fraser, and Jesse Plemons
AMC
Air Date: August 18, 2013

What would you do if you were Skyler White?

Considering the fact that she acted for so long as a barrier for Heisenberg’s natural progression and evolution, I can understand much of the audience not being a Skyler White fan. It’s almost by design in that aspect, as we’re conditioned to not liking her character because she’s against our “hero.” At that early stage, it was mostly because she’s the one stopping Walter (Bryan Cranston) from becoming more a badass.

But there are so many moments in Breaking Bad episode “Buried” that remind me that Skyler White (Anna Gunn) is doing the best job that she possibly can. Like Skyler, Hank (Dean Norris) and Marie (Betsy Brandt) have been affected by Walt’s cancerous decisions, but they could claim ignorance and continue. Skyler isn’t as lucky, having taken a pledge to protect this family from the man who protects this family. She’s just as buried in the business as Walt is, a fact that Marie hauntingly came to realize in an incredible standout moment for these two sisters.

Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 9 Blood Money

As Breaking Bad begins its final run of episodes, we’ll be reveiwing the series as it comes to what will probably be a very bloody, intense, and exciting finale. Join us after the jump for analysis of Walter White’s final journey.

Breaking Bad
Season 5, Episode 9 – “Blood Money”
Directed by Bryan Cranston
Written by Peter Gould
Starring: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Laura Fraser, Charles Baker, and Matt Jones

What has pride cost you?

Recently, it’s cost me about $10. I got mad at a former girlfriend over a stupid fight and decided to not put on sunscreen before heading into a college football game. It was all about pride, feeling that this was a way I could get back at her: by not letting her tell me what to do. So I ignored her words of advice and marched into the game, having felt that I’d won.

The $10 and the week I spent rubbing aloe-vera into my face told a different story.

I say all this to preface the fact that hubris can lead to lots of stupid decisions and damaging outcomes. In the case of Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) pride, it’s certainly cost him a lot of things. However, this time around, it may cost him the most it’s ever cost.

Geeks of Doom Netflix Streaming Review

Netflix Review: Breaking Bad – Season 4Breaking Bad – Season 4
Netflix Streaming
DVD | Blu-ray
Created by Vince Gilligan
Starring Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Giancarlo Esposito, Jonathan Banks
AMC / Sony
S04E01 First Broadcast: July 17, 2011

With the launch of the final fifth season of Breaking Bad on television, Netflix has finally brought the fourth season to the streaming audience, providing an awesome experience for subscribers. Season 4 of Breaking Bad, in my mind, is the superior of the series thus far; bringing Walter White’s journey to an incredible crescendo portrayed in an amazing performance by Bryan Cranston, and delivering some of the most compelling television with an explosive conclusion certain to satisfy the viewers and hardcore fans alike.

For the uninitiated, Breaking Bad follows the story of Walter White, a chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Facing continual mounting medical bills without adequate insurance, White is forced to find a manner of making money to cover not only the expenses, but to leave some sort of financial legacy for his family.
