Breaking Bad & a side of How I Met Yout Mother

What I’ve watched since I last posted:

Let me just start by saying I am stoked about last night’s brand new episode of Breaking Bad, “Breakage.”  To be honest I’ve felt the show has been lacking in quality compared to the original season.  However, last nights episode brought the show back to what it was originally about, the production and sale of  methamphetamine.  With last night’s episode Walt and Jessie are back in business and taking over Tuco‘s empire.  It’s great to see Jessie finally getting his act together, something they have been eluding to for a while.  Even so, he has no idea what he’s gotten himself into but we’ll get to that next week after we see the fall out from this episode.  It sucks to see the position Walt is putting him in but it has to be done.

As for Walt, things just keep getting worse at home with Skyler.  Their marriage is pushing it’s limits and, with all the secrets in the house, it’s close to a breaking point.  Between his cancer, his cooking and a pregnant wife, Walt definitely has his hands full.  Still, he shouldn’t be taking all his problems out on Jessie and the business.

Things aren't getting any better between Walt and Skyler

As for this weeks How I Met Your Mother, “Murtaugh,” the gang looks into things to do before getting to old.  The whole episode revolves around Danny Glover‘s character in the Lethal Weaponseries, Danny Murtaugh, and his catch phrase, “I’m too old for this shit.”  This sparks the idea of making a list of things to do before you’re too old.  Of course, you can count on Barney to want to finish that list.  Though it’s not the best episode of H.I.M.Y.M. it does still captures all the comedy the show usually offers, mainly because the cast works so well together.  As if that’s not enough, we get to see Robin dressed up as a hot raver chick, and boy do I mean hot!

If you don't watch this show now is the perfect time to start

Lets start with last nights all new Heroes episode, “Into Asylum.”  With all that has been going on for the super powered fugitives you would think things couldn’t get any worse.  Guess again.  With an alliance forged between the Hunter (Zeljko Ivanek) and Sylar (Zachary Quinto) the heroes are bound to have their hands full.  In any case you can probably rest assured Sylar has his own agenda.  Meanwhile Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) and Angela (Christine Rose) search for answers from higher places as Claire (Hayden Panettiere)  takes control of her and Nathan’s (Adrian Pasdar) situation in Mexico.

On The Office in “Two Weeks,” Michael (Steve Carrell) and the rest of the gang are learning to deal with Dunder Mifflin’s new Vice President, Charles (Idris Elba).  Elba does a great job portraying his character, the new guy from corporate with every intention of changing all the rules.  Really though, how long can this guy hold up.  Especially when he doesn’t even get along with Jim (John Krasinski).

Today was not a good day for Jessie

This Week on Breaking Bad Jesse (Aaron Paul) struggles with his life falling apart on all fronts.  This is one of the reasons I love this show so much.  These characters are not on unimaginable, they’re real people with real problems.  As Jesse seeks guidance from Walt (Bryan Cranston) he is cold shoulder as Walt deals with his families trust issues after his recent disappearance.  If you have never heard of this show, It airs Sundays at 10 p.m. and is definitelyworth watching.  Without getting too much in detail, a high school teacher gets diagnosed with cancer and begins cooking meth to pay off his bills and secure his family’s financial situation.
Well that’s all the time I have for now but I’ll see you back here on Thursday.
