So I have been catching up on Breaking Bad, although that might not be the right way to say it since I never watched it to begin with.  But I decided that in order to understand the finale, I needed to see the show.  That’s not logical.  I know.  How could I determine that I want to see the finale if I hadn’t even watched the series? Doesn't make sense.  But that’s what I’m doing.


  • Don’t do drugs.  Duh.
  • I wish Jesse would make better decisions.
  • I don’t care what decisions Walter makes.  He is evil.
  • I wish Walter's wife and son would stay far, far away from him, just in case the people gunning for him find him. Actually, everyone needs to stay far, far away from him.
  • “Camper cooking” means cooking meth in an RV.  It’s mobile yo, harder to find.
  • Getting ahold of lots and lots of pseudo ephedrine is really difficult for meth cooks.
  • Don’t go into the desert alone. 
  • “Bounce” means "to go,” as in “Go bounce, yo,” (Go away NOW) and “We gotta bounce” (We gotta get the h*ll out of here NOW).
  • If you close your eyes AND cover them with your hands, you won’t be able to see all the violence.  The series is occasionally INCREDIBLY violent. 
  • Bryan Cranston is NOT the star; Aaron Paul is the star.  He is amazing. He is the bomb, yo.
  • I think that "yo" is the equivalent of an exclamation mark.  I think it might also mean "Hey."  It might mean other things too, but I haven't figured them out yet.

I read somewhere that one hour spent watching television takes some specific amount of time off of our lives.  I don’t see how whoever studied this can know this, but if it’s true, I’m screwed and it’s all the fault of Breaking Bad.

Also, I’m trying to learn Spanish from the series but this might not be the best way to accomplish it.  They speak really fast, and even though the Spanish is subtitled, I can’t catch the individual words.  I can command "Finish him" though:  Terminado.  Not useful presumably,  but I could say it if I had to.

I'm only at Series 3, so there is a long way to go.

Watch this space.

Gotta bounce, yo.

This may be the funniest thing you've ever written.

Haven't watched the show myself, but when I finally get hooked, I'm printing this out as a primer. Yo.
