I just finished watching Season 3...OMG ! What a cliffhanger! I don't have cable. How can I watch Season 4 without cable...so that I can be caught up before Season 5 starts?
For some time now there have been rumors in the Breaking Bad underground that guerrilla poet W.W. was at work on new verse. It has now been confirmed that the literary titan has indeed been visited by his muse, and that his labors have brought forth a weighty new tome. While a publication date for the complete volume of new work has not yet been announced by the publisher, the following short sample has been released by the poet's attorney and literary agent, Saul Goodman.
A Blue Skyler White
Skyler White just could have wept
'cause Walt and Ted were so inept
Both those guys were new at crime
and ran some risk of doing time
For Walt and Ted to not get caught,
she'd have to help out quite a lot.
She thought her schemes had tons of merit
so they'd just have to grin and bear it.
Walt and Sky had heaps of cash,
way to much to simply stash.
She knew a way to set things right.
They'd launder money in plain sight.
A car wash story seemed to fit,
so Walt and Skyler went legit.
She snookered Bogdan with a trick,
and bought the business from that prick.
At the car wash Ted stopped by.
It was, she thought, to just say "Hi!"
But he was facing quite a mess--
an audit by the IRS.
It seems that she had signed the books
that made them both now seem like crooks
Her subterfuge had not a chance
to long withstand the tax man's glance
But audit day was no big thing
'cause Skyler showed up wearing bling,
Although the agent knew the law,
his brains got lost down in her bra.
She then ran off to talk to Saul.
He was her lawyer after all.
She knew that it would be no fun
to tell that scoundrel all she'd done.
Saul knew about the sex with Ted,
and who did what to whom in bed,
but never did he suspect fraud.
He'd under rated this sly broad.
Cooking books and nooky, too?
Gals like that were rare, he knew.
The question, though, that seemed to vex
was "Who was paying whom for sex?"
She stole the dough to pay Ted's bill
and when he balked she got quite shrill.
Had he the sense to just play ball
He'd not have taken that bad fall.
Walt and Ted both drove her nuts.
And even Saul just hired muts.
"A-Team, my ass!," passed through her mind.
"Good men these days are hard to find."
Shields up! Spelling Committee Red Alert! Spelling Threat Condition raised to SPELLCON 4! The
foregoing doggerel has been determined to contain misspelled words. Kudos to the Spelling
Committee for another fine job of turning back the menacing tide of felonious misspelling by unmasking of this ferocious miscreant.
Great News! The Spelling Committee has announced that it has received the coveted Yapping Lap Dog Group Achievement Award For Eternal Vigilance. Competition among the many posting standards committees for the "Yappy," as the award is colloquially known, is fierce. The honor is granted by the Vigilance Oversight Committee to recognize outstanding efforts at maintaining posting purity. Well done!
We know Gus was a Generalissimo in South America at one time and that Madrigal Electromotive is a parent company of the Los Pollos Hermanos franchise. Gus Fring always seems to be hiding in plain sight if you will and I'm all for hidden messages they have in Breaking Bad that are revealed later for example, the eye from the pink teddy bear, the Lilly of the valley in Walt's back yard, the many flashbacks that could reveal more than what we already know, and the occasional symbolic imagery, etc.. Anyway, it's something like that that got me thinking of this topic. How can a man so far down this business be so cunning towards law enforcement and not be caught after over 20 years of experience?
Now I'm not saying the DEA is crooked except for Hank, But perhaps Gus has a few connections to make sure the straight agents like Hank don't catch on like ASAC Merket for example, he could be working for Gus. I thought of that one for a while.
Also not only the D.E.A but other law enforcement like the police and perhaps even the F.B.I... Throughout Season 4 you could also spot an American flag here or there. His mailbox in .38 snub and another in End Times after Tyrus says ‘We got a problem’ then switches to Walt making the Pipe bomb from ingredients ‘made in America’ (symbolic?) Also in Gus’s last walk (perhaps?)Could these be little hints for Gus being in cahoots with some us government law enforcements and will Hank’s search down the rabbit hole reveal this? Does this sound like too much? Maybe not.
What artifact are you looking forward to seeing in Season 5?
I would love to know more about Don Eladio's necklace/pendant. Surely Gus has (had) it in his home or office. Will the DEA find it? Will they kow what it is? ('cause somehwere along the line, there MUST have been a photo of Don Eladio wearing it.) I want to know more about the history of the pendant.
(and I wonder if our writers will ever place it around Walt' neck--dead or alive!!)
I would love to know the name of the song and group who did the song in season 1, episode 1 where Walt and Jesse cook meth for the first time. It's very catchy.
Shortly after the disgraceful confrontation that Skyler's infidelity provoked in the lobby of Beneke Mfg. (Episode 304 –Green Light), she became the subject of countless coarse jokes that circulated among coworkers in office cubicles, on the shop floor, and around the lunch table. Worker discipline and productivity plummeted at Beneke's as employees became obsessed with making up outrageous new jokes on a daily basis. In an act of outright vandalism, one joke was even scrawled on the door of a bathroom stall. The whole tawdry situation got completely out of hand. To put an end to this naughtiness once and for all, the Beneke Mfg. supervisory staff decided to hold a contest to identify the funniest of the jokes. They reasoned that a truly outstanding joke would be so hard to top that the employees would give up on the joke writing, stop wasting time on such nonsense, and get back to work. According to contest rules, an employee who thought that he had come up with a winning joke was carefully to write it out on 8-1/2 x 11-inch sheet of printer paper and place it in one of the suggestion boxes located throughout the plant. A committee made up of shop supervisors and office managers were to judge the entries. A modest cash prize was offered to encourage participation. The prize money was "borrowed" from the Annual Christmas Party Fund, although some fastidious employees questioned the propriety of doing this and considered it a misappropriation of money intended for the purchase of holiday booze. The winning entry was to have been printed in the very next issue of "Beneke Mfg. Today," the in-house news letter. Ted, of course, recused himself from all participation in the contest because, when it came to Skyler, he considered himself to be an insider in a manner of speaking. These remedial efforts turned out to be too little, too late. Beneke Mfg. had become a rudderless ship adrift on a storm-tossed sea, while its great helmsman Ted was below decks locked in the amorous embrace of the sultry temptress Skyler White. The disruption of production rapidly led to missed product deliveries and ultimately to financial catastrophe as revenues went into free fall. Before the eagerly awaited newsletter could be printed, the company was forced to file for bankruptcy and shut its doors. By and large, the contest entries had been disappointing. Three of them were disqualified due to spelling errors. One entrant even had the effrontery to misspell Skyler's name! For the most part, female entrants excoriated Skyler with vitriolic scorn -- almost to the point of being unsportsmanlike. Oddly enough, about half the male entrants seemed to misunderstand the purpose of the contest altogether. Instead of submitting jokes, they appeared to focus on inventive schemes for coaxing Skyler into bed. They had somehow come to the conclusion that she was available for extra-marital mischief. (Perhaps contest rules weren't stated clearly.) And as if all this weren't enough, a notification of an impending audit arrived from the IRS shortly after the bankruptcy. The rest is, as they say, history.
Spelling Committee Red Alert! Spelling Threat Condition raised to SPELLCON 4. The forgoing test has been determined to contain one or more spelling errors.
After the shoot out in Mexico, Gus appears in the hospital he set up and tells Jesse it is time to go. He seems to have something under his shirt. It looks like he is wearing a corset or maybe a bullet proof vest. Did anyone else notice that?
The AMC forums are the only place where I kept seeing an annoying "Meebo" toolbar at the bottom of the page. After searching around for a bit, I came to a solution:

That's it … stupid toolbar gone!
They didn't really explain what happened with Ted. They showed Saul's 2 men come back and said something about an act of nature causing a problem but I don't remember what the final verdict was? Anybody know what happened there? Did Ted get the check stopped?
it was crushed. and its NIT pick
Krysten Ritter has a new show called APT. 23. It is on tonight on ABC.
Literary circles are abuzz with news of the recent discovery of the manuscript of a poem titled "Ode to Skyler White" by the shadowy figure known only by the initials W.W. (see text of poem below). The poem had been scrawled on a grease-stained napkin from the regional fast food chain Los Pollos Hermanos. The manuscript was found folded up inside a badly chipped promotional coffee mug that had been offered by the now-defunct company Beneke Mfg. The mug itself is dated from ca. 2011 and had an asking price of $2 at an Albuquerque garage sale. Fortunately, the keen-eyed purchaser of the mug was also a devotee of the modern documentary masterpiece "Breaking Bad" and immediately recognized the poem's historical significance. This documentary series is known for its sensitive treatment of contemporary drug issues. The manuscript is still undergoing forensic analysis to determine its authenticity, but inside sources claim that it is almost certainly the real McCoy. Colorful local attorney and literary agent Saul Goodman represents the lucky thrift shopper who now owns the manuscript. To date only the title and first four quatrains of the epic-length poem have been made public. They are reproduced below.
Ode to Skyler White
Shed a tear for Skyler White.
She just can't locate Mr. Right.
She married Walt, 'cause that seemed best,
but he got cancer in his chest.
Walt knew for sure he wouldn't last,
so turned to meth to make dough fast.
When he showed Sky his cash with glee,
she broke his heart with I. F. T.
She figured Ted was worth a try.
He seemed to be a wealthy guy.
In the sack she liked his style,
so she boffed him for quite a while.
Ted turned out to be a crook,
so she gave Walt a second look.
Though Walter doesn't have a clue,
she's on the prowl for someone new.
Oh, no!. Spelling Committee Red Alert! Spelling Threat Level has been raised to SPELLCON 4! The foregoing doggerel has been determined to contain a spelling error. The Disciplinary Committee has already awarded a gilt-edged Double Attaboy to the Spelling Committee member who correctly identified and reported this egregious affront to common decency. Spelling Committee members are urged to remain vigilant while Spelling Threat Level remains elevated.
So I recently read that season 5 will have a 4 MONTH hiatus between the first 8 episodes and the last 8 episodes. Anyone else find this infuriating?!?! What makes it worse.....I read on the huffington post that this might be aimed at making the show eligible for two separate award seasons. What about the fans!!!!! Breaking Bad is definitely my all time favorite television show (and I'm not a fan of television in general) but subjecting fans of the show to this kind of abuse for the sake of awards especially in the final season seems cruel and unusual.
I guess it is not to early to begin posting links to songs that might find a place in season five. Now is the time.
I just watched the episode “Green Light”. In this episode, Guys tells Mike he does not believe fear to be an appropriate motivator. Also in this episode, Gus sets out a veggie snack tray for his meeting with Hector, Juan and the Cousins. I can’t believe that was the same man who killed Victor with a box cutter, kidnaped and held captive Jesse and then called Hector a “Ratta” before he was about to inject him with something to kill him. I think Gus is still in Mexico with Mike. It is strange, that after taking a poison strong enough to kill everyone who drank it and caused him to go into a coma even though he vomited and took an antidote, Gus, only hours later, was able to walk five miles thru the desert without a hat to get to Texas. Gus is a master of deceit. I think he manipulated his brother to take his place at the same moment that Walt wanted to kill him. He got rid of his evil twin brother and Hector at the same time, all of his enemies in Mexico are dead and now he is set to make a comeback. Even the DEA thinks he is dead. He can change his name or just stay on the DL and put Walt and Jesse back to work in the other(secret) super lab.
While fan opinion seems to favor the untimely demise of Ted Beneke, we did actually see his fingers sort of "flutter" (to use Vince's word) in his final scene in Episode 411 -- and then there's that pesky Episode 411 synopsis on this web site. There may have still been a spark of life in Ted after his header-- and maybe Huell and Kuby administered some life-saving first aid as the emergency response vehicles sped to the scene of the tragedy following a frantic call to 911 by the lads. They certainly wouldn't have just walked off and left the guy. After all, Skyler was quite explicit in Episode 411(Crawl Space) when she said she didn't want anyone hurt -- you know -- a "no-rough-stuff-type" deal (OK, bad example -- that one didn't end well for Gonzo and his pal). And remember, Saul didn't give the job to just anybody -- it went to his A-Team. Nevertheless, the fans seem to think it best for the story line if the writers don't pursue this option. Well, it would definitely be best for Walt and Skyler if the writers let this sleeping dog lie. Just think -- under the best of circumstances, Ted would a have a lengthy convalescence, during which time he would be exposed to lots of daytime TV. At some point he is bound to see one of Saul Goodman's commercial spots, and you know how persuasive Saul can be. Then there is going to be trouble - the seed will have been planted to go after the Whites in a personal injury lawsuit. And that rascal Saul -- he'll take just anyone as a client. It's a wonder the New Mexico State Bar Association hasn't gone after him with some sort of disciplinary action by now. Ted would sue Skyler for hiring the enforcers, and he'd sue Walt separately for letting Skyler proposition him in the first place. The second of these two causes of legal action would doubtless fall under one of those statutes dealing with an offence know as "maintaining an attractive nuisance." Those laws apply to such hazards as unfenced swimming pools -- and wayward wives. A vengeful Ted might succeed in winning the rest of Walt's drug money plus the car wash and the house -- and then driving the White family into bankruptcy. Poor little Holly would end up being raised in a homeless shelter. Hopefully the White's economic straits wouldn't become so desperate that Skyler would have to team up with Wendy. Wouldn't it be ironic if, as a result of protracted legal wrangling among all the characters still left standing, Saul, solely through his legal fees, ended up with every last cent of the drug money earned by everyone? The final scene in the series finale could be a shot of a grinning Saul perched atop his enormous heap of cash.
Technical legal issue: If worse should come to worse and Ted is -- well -- you know -- no longer among the living, would it be a breach of professional ethics for Saul to represent Ted's survivors in a wrongful death civil suit against Skyler?
This guy Ted is sort of a TV version of Schrodinger's Cat (N.B. for the Forum Spelling Committee, my keyboard doesn’t have an umlaut). The question is: Does he go from his mixed live/dead state to either a live state or dead state when Vince decides what to do with him or when Episode 501 first airs to the viewers on AMC?
Ha ha, this is for my fellow BB fans. The site has a Los Pollos shirt too, but personally I loved these. BETTER CALL SAUL!!!!
hope the writers read this, try this music at the last episode "chrystal blue persusion" tommy james & shondells and fire comin out of the monkeys head
One has to wonder if there will be a Season 5 scene for the reading of Gus's will. Hopefully Saul isn't the attorney handling the estate! After the DEA gets through seizing everything in sight, though, there may not be a lot left. We may discover that the only thing remaining is the "Gustavo Fring Secret Fried Chicken Recipe.” Can the Feds confiscate intellectual property?
Come to think of it, Gus probably just stole that recipe from Abuelita down in Santiago. Considering how Gus turned out, she may be a pretty tough customer. Maybe she's the mysterious unknown person who so terrified Don Eladio that he was afraid to wack Gus. He may have heard tales of how years ago she used to wail on little Gus when she would catch him filching fresh cookies from her kitchen.
why is there an "April 2, 2012" date posted for "black and white photos of season's 4 scenes'? This should be a date revealing the premiere of season 5!! what bull shit
Join us by letting the producers know that WE FANS do NOT want season 5 to be the finale season! This is such an awesome show. There are so many directions it could go in. 5 seasons does not do it justice! Please continue this show.
Simple question....anyone know the air date for season 5?
