Editor’s note: Breaking Bad went from a curio television program to a cultural phenomenon. I’ve wanted to talk about the show before it jumped off the cliff to popularity but I just never made the connection. In steps my homegirl Special K who really, really, REALLY goes in for the show. She’s gonna give us drops for this new feature titled ‘Blogging Bad’. Let’s go…
How much of a “Breaking Bad” fan am I? Let’s just put it this way. How many people do you know who would actually choose to vacation in glorious Albuquerque, New Mexico in the height of their 100+ degree summer just so they could do their own Breaking Bad tour, visiting and photographing many of the locations that are key to the series’ storyline?
Also, how many people do you know who friend people on Facebook who have assumed the identities of Breaking Bad characters? Well now you know at least one. Obsessed much? Just a little. But who could blame me? BB has to be one of the best shows EVER on TV, right up there, for my money, with The Wire and The Sopranos.
And for those of you who watched on Sunday night (SPOILER ALERT), you know that it’s now on between Walt and his brother-in-law/DEA agent Hank, and the end might just be in sight for Walt’s blue meth empire. Unfortunately, we’re not going to find out for another year, as the last episodes of the fifth – and final – season of BB will be broadcast next summer. So for those who need their BB fix, so to speak, you’re just gonna have to wait!
Well, at least we have Dexter…
