Find Me On:
10000/1 Hank hits a rough spot with his investigation and decides to employ the help of a psychic. The psychic holds a seance which brings the spirits of Tuco, Gale, and Gus, among others, back to the earthly realm. Breaking Bad series finale is basically a remake of Drag Me to Hell, but still manages to be more believable than Dexter Morgan’s sudden interest in religion as a parenting tool.
You need a spoiler alert for his neck.
I mostly agree with this. I was thinking “really?” the first time I watched the episode, but by the second time, I was okay with it. I feel it could have been more believable if Gus hadn’t been standing, walking, and adjusting his tie perfectly normally for about 3 seconds. I can’t believe that someone with only half a face (and maybe brain) left could do that.
If he had stumbled out of the door, fell onto his side, and the camera panned from right to left, showing the ruined half of his face, as we see him weakly straighten his tie as his last movement? That, I could have been more behind. But this episode was still great, and the CG effects and makeup were quite good for a show that isn’t normally heavily dependent upon them, so I’m OK with it.
“He and Aaron Paul begin cooking meth, and surprise, it’s like the best meth ever.”
They really hit a home run with their formula.
Plus laugh track.
It’s a picture of the iPhone 5 with the new, improved version of Hipstamatic.
“A person can’t stop sending non-sober texts, every single night. They have a very serious substance abuse problem but it is set to a laugh track. An interesting mix.”
So, what you’re saying is that this TV show will be a total ripoff of TMZ.
Well, there isn’t a reliable medical test for ricin, and the ones that are around aren’t widely available. This is what the CDC has to say about symptoms of ricin inhalation:
“Within a few hours of inhaling significant amounts of ricin, the likely symptoms would be respiratory distress (difficulty breathing), fever, cough, nausea, and tightness in the chest. Heavy sweating may follow as well as fluid building up in the lungs (pulmonary edema). [...] Finally, low blood pressure and respiratory failure may occur, leading to death. In cases of known exposure to ricin, people having respiratory symptoms that started within 12 hours of inhaling ricin should seek medical care.”
The first part sounds pretty flu-like. If he inhaled it, though, Brock would have had to smoke the cigarette by himself, or his mom would probably be experiencing symptoms, too.
Just a warning to anyone planning on seeing Dream House: it has a pretty cliche twist halfway through.
It’s still all right for a Hollywood PG-13 horror/thriller, though.
Just commenting to say that I already miss The Whitest Kids U Know, despite their stupidly-spelled name.
This, and lots and lots of heroin, IMO.
and any scene with Bob Odenkirk.
I didn’t notice if Huell put his foot on it on the way into Ted’s living room, but when Ted trips, he’s still standing by the couch and reading a home decor magazine. I’m annoyed that this scene isn’t up on youtube yet so I can re-watch!
Actually, I thought that Ted tripped over the rug by himself, with no help from Huell and Bill Burr… which made his death even more hilarious.
“So help you God, you better not touch any of the lights in the middle of this scene.”
“I’m serious. If I catch you all AH DA DA DA in the middle of the background, I’ll personally make sure that you get a taste of the Batman Movie Curse. Do you understand?”
“OK, Christian, I get it. I’m sorry.”
“Stay away from the —– lights. For —- sake. All right, let’s go.”
Well, I’m glad to see that Tommy Wiseau is truly the sensitive and kind-hearted person that he portrayed in the Room, after hearing comments like:
“Come on, little lesbian,”
“Damn it, you Mexican, or whatever you are,”
and “Yeah, she have big boob, now she thinking smart, huh.”
Tina Fey had her face slashed as a toddler, and she still has a subtle scar from it on one of her cheeks.
