I put season 3, disc 2 of Breaking Bad on a piece of string and wore it around my neck as a talisman. I can now achieve orgasm just by thinking about the fly episode!

Breaking Bad is an exceptional show, but not a perfect one. In its fifth season, it doesn’t strike the delicate comedy/drama balance it once did, and its overwhelming darkness can swallow you up at times. Even then, it makes for incredibly compelling television. I… excuse me, who are you? How did you people get in here? Get your hands off of me! What’s on this rag? Mmmmrrrphhh… where… where are you taking me…

I have no desire to live in a world where new episodes of AMC’s Breaking Bad are not being produced. When the series ends, I will, in turn, end my own life. … Betsy Brandt is a delight!
