First teaser for ‘Better Call Saul’ doesn’t reveal much other than we won’t have to wait that long to see the rest

February 2015.

Emmy nominations announced yesterday. Who do you think was snubbed?

This year’s Primetime Emmy nominations, announced yesterday, weren’t that big of a surprise— Game of Thrones scored a zillion nominations, Breaking Bad’s last season also racked up a bunch, Orange is the New Black and House of Cards got more nominations for Netflix, but who do you think got snubbed?

My vote is definitely Dean Norris as Hank Schrader in Breaking Bad. Norris was a consistently great actor on Breaking Bad, evolving the character of Hank tremendously in all those years, and Breaking Bad’s last season was Norris’s season. So many meaty moments, so much intensity. Both the Emmy and Oscar voters love to be surprised— which is why small children or first time actors frequently will easily get nominations and awards for their first good performance while veteran actors with decades of experience are left out. I think that’s what happened with Norris. He’s been acting for a long time, and you could easily say he’s been typecast as the cop/soldier/white hat cowboy for most of his career, and his role on Breaking Bad fit in with that. So maybe he never got a nomination because everyone’s like “Yeah, of course Dean Norris can play a cop”, but for fuck’s sake, that last season, Norris totally stuck the landing, as did Betsy Brandt, who was also not nominated.

'Better Call Saul' spinoff will take place before, during and after Breaking Bad

What with the Breaking Bad spinoff ‘Better Call Saul’ having already been signed up for two seasons before a single episode has even aired, you may be wondering when exactly the timeline of the show takes place. The answer is that it will span decades— mostly occurring before the well orchestrated clusterfuck of events of Breaking Bad, but it will also periodically take place both during and after Walter White’s rise and fall. This should be pure ecstasy to Breaking Bad fans, as it will allow the writers to not only bring back characters that died during BB, but will give fans a bit of a glimpse into the post-Walter White world.

North Korea makes so much incredibly pure meth, it would make Walter White giggle with joy

When you’re one of the poorest nations on Earth, but you need lots of money to spend on all military brass and polish, but you have nothing of real value, what do you do? Make meth. 98% pure crystal meth, and lots of it. So much of it, that the government encourages people to smoke it every day because they’ve got so much of it, and it’s pretty much the only thing that’s keeping the nation afloat at all. Had Breaking Bad not ended like it had, and Walter White wanted more than just the North American meth market, one more season and he could have been going toe-to-toe with the North Korean government. That would have been fun.

Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul appeared on The Price is Right in 2000

I think he may have discovered blue meth looong before the series. To be honest, though, I’d be excited as hell to be on the Price is Right as well.

Walter White’s Facebook look back video is the only FB look back video you gave to see

You may have noticed your FB wall full of 2013 look back videos, as it’s a new thing Facebook is doing this year for their 10th anniversary. Most if the ones your friends post are probably really boring, but not meth king Walter White. He had a hell of a year last year.
