It’s not an immediate surprise that the Simpsons paves the way for a lot of great pop culture moments.  I stumbled upon this obscure Simpsons clip where Homer stumbles upon the grave of Walt Whitman and begins to start kicking and yelling at it.  Now I’ve barely seen a complete episode of the Simpsons, so I have no idea what the context of this clip is.  But what I did make a connection with is the top rated Youtube comments.  Surprisingly this is a Breaking Bad related clip, so hit the more button to explain/discuss the hilarity of this clip with many Breaking Bad SPOILERS.

Mike Erhmentraut has been trending on the internet lately because of his sheer awesomeness.  He was involved in a few unforgettable moments in season 5 of Breaking Bad, and has therefore spawned an amazing commercial that plays on the “Be Like Mike” campaign that revolved around Michael Jordan so many years ago.  An upbeat tune of being “Like Mike” has a different connotation to it because the original campaign wanted you to be like the awesome and inspiring basketball player, while this version aspires you to be a fixer and cold-blooded murderer.  Check out the original Like Mike commercial below and beware because the above video contains massive spoilers.

The mid-season finale of Breaking Bad was done over a month ago and I’m still feeling the aftershocks of it.  I found this sweet video that chronicles the change of Walter White’s character throughout all the seasons.  Naturally, a brush of nostalgic and spine chilling air swept over me as the music tuned in with the perfect moments created an unforgettable 8 minutes.  Before I posted this video, I literally watched this video at least once a week for the cheap thrills.  Breaking Bad is just so good because of it’s complexity and underlying themes.  It’s so much more than a guy cooking some meth and getting tangled into drug rings.  An ace Youtube commenter marked minute as the ‘death’ of Walter White.  Well at least the metaphorical death, whereas the rest of the series he’s essentially full blown Heisenberg.  I highly recommend any Breaking Bad fan to watch this clip.  SPOILERS FROM THE ENTIRE SERIES.

Now someone needs to do a Jessie Pinkman video.  Like now.

This is a really cool intro to Breaking Bad.  It includes a lot of the main players in a sweet montage with an extended track version of the song.  It totally encompasses the journey of each character in the collage of key scenes, both loved and hated [looking at your Marie].  Although I would’ve liked credits to Giancarlo Esposito and Jonathan Banks, this will certainly do.  The short version isn’t an all great opening, but this prolonged version definitely gives off a creepiness vibe.  And as a chemical engineer at my college, the whole periodic table thing has got me even giddier.  Slightly less than a year until the season finale.

Omar Gallaga at CNN has stumbled upon an fascinating parallel. The rise and fall and rise again of tech giant Apple is stunningly similar to the adventures of Walter White in Breaking Bad. The similarities between Steve Jobs and Walter White are especially spine tingling.

Here are two excerpts from Mr. Gallaga’s article:

“What makes Apple so successful? Like Walter White, it has mixed the proper elements at just the right amounts to create highly pure, addictive products. The products have been made within secretive working conditions. The skill employed to design and manufacture them tends to make what competitors put out seem like cheaper, cloudier, less effective imitations.”

Not a lot of Meth related drama on this week’s episode of Breaking Bad.  Instead we focused a lot of the family drama between Walter and Skylar.  This show definitely has its bad ass moments and heart thrilling scenes, but the acting is top notch.  For this year’s Emmys, 4 cast members are nodded with a best actor nomination, and based on last night’s episode, they’re reeling up for another one.  Read on for this week’s episode of Fifty-One.  Major spoilers as always.

Breaking Bad was on last night and it finally looks like we got to some cooking.  A relatively calm episode in terms of crime drama, but we do have some personal stories mixed in.  The calm before the storm I think.  A storm that will definitely be rocking me side to side.  So as of right now, I’m taking in all of this set up and awaiting the climax of the season which should hit us within the next two episodes.  Here’s my review of the episode below.  Be sure to be aware of spoilers!  Because they’re everywhere.

Breaking Bad returned last night in full force.  Following up immediately where season 4 left off, the episode spent a large amount of time feeling the ramifications of what happened throughout all the characters.  I’m not going into any spoilers until after the jump, so enough of this vague introduction.  Let’s get into the what happened!  Major spoilers below!!!!!!

It’s small, but it’s still worth honoring considering that Breaking Bad returns in about 15 days. Breaking Bad is absolutely one of the best [if not the absolute best] television shows out there. This very scene was from the first season and can be known as one of the first steps taken in Walter White’s journey down his dark road. Well maybe not this particular scene, but the original one. If the Charizard actually did pop out, then we’d definitely have a strong candidate for ‘Best Fcking Television Show Ever Created’.

With Breaking Bad just around the corner, it’s more than ready to start getting ready for it.  I legitimately had to say last year’s season of Breaking Bad simply was the best show of the year, that saying even though I’m a hardcore Game of Thrones fan.  It’s gritty, exciting, violent, and so emotional, that no amount [well maybe some amount] of dragons could beat the legendary game of cat and mouse between Gus and Walter.  So in that honor, I’ve compiled a gallery of Deviant Art’s finest in honor of Walter White.  In all honesty, there is a lot of Jessie Pinkman, so it might as well be the combination of the two.  Breaking Bad’s final season part 1 begins July 15, 2012 on AMC.

The only salvageable piece of television in the deep summer in my opinion is AMC’s Breaking Bad.  I’m seeing previews for Teen Wolf, White Collar, etc, etc.  But nothing beats the high school chemistry teacher turned meth drug lord drama that has earned best series/actor several years in a row at distinct television award ceremonies.  And as the promos for the season finale [which is broken up into two 8 episode runs in 2012 and 2013] are finally surfacing including this really badass shot of Walter White sitting in a lawn chair in his chemical hazmat suit, with boxes of both money and meth behind him.  He’s gonna make his heads roll this season.  I believe it’s only him and Dexter Morgan who are technically evil people we will gladly root for.

Meanwhile, a Walter White gallery is compiling in my computer.  Wait for it.

It might be out of taste because it’s totally so last year, but it doesn’t change the fact I stumbled into this amazingly well done RPG representation of one of the best dramas on television.  It beat out Game of Thrones last year in my opinion, and with filming occurring this year for it’s final season, it’s the only reason why Game of Thrones will probably nab my favorite spot.  I’m off topic, so let me circle back.  Today I give you two different adaptations of a Breaking Bad Video Game.  The one above was done by Johnny Utah who’s taken the Street Fighter Route to tastefully include small jokes made throughout the entire series, and the one below follows a more Japanese/Korean style RPG made by College Humor.  Enjoy them both.

I’ve finally caught up with breaking bad after season 4 ended at the end of the summer and I have to say that this was probably my favorite season.  I probably understand that not many of my readers are viewers of this show because it’s fairly under the radar.  So to those who haven’t broken bad [a slang term to define those who have turned to making crystal meth to make money], this is a story about a genius high school chemistry teacher who has teamed up with a white trash punk to make methamphetamine to pay off his cancer bills.  As similar to Weeds [a show I tried, but couldn’t finish watching], this tale is far more darker and all around badass.  And as you could imagine after 4 seasons, shit has really hit the fan where our leads get mixed up with the DEA, Mexican Drug Cartel, and the biggest meth dealers in the southern United States.  And as season 4 wrapped up, we’re finally given the closure we’ve been wanting [that is, until Breaking Bad’s fifth and final season comes out next year].  Read below for my take on season 4 as a whole.  Major spoilers beware!
