We did a quick look round the internet the other day and realised that practically no one is writing anything about Breaking Bad. Way to drop the ball, other websites: it's a pretty big deal, you know! Lucky you've got us around to discuss the face off it. (Spoilers all over the place, obviously.)
With only eight episodes to go, I have no idea whatsoever how Breaking Bad's going to finish this year, and even less how I'm going to fill the empty shell of a life it'll leave behind for me. Maybe I'll try and recreate key scenes in the shed.
Former Deputy Chairman of the Iraqi Revolutionary Command Council and trusted henchman of Saddam Hussein, Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, has emerged from hiding after nearly a decade. In his time as a fugitive he is thought to have been running a meth lab in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

It's a guy in a deckchair. But not just ANY guy. It's Bryan Cranston. And not just ANY deckchair. Wait ... no, that is just an ordinary deckchair. Or IS it? Look, click if you want to, but it's not going to get any better.
You know how sometimes we write long, overly earnest and not-all-that-funny stuff about TV shows just because we like them a lot, and partly because we've been given free DVDs and we're total whores for that sort of thing? Yeah, well, apologies in advance. But, if we hadn't made it clear enough over the last week or so, you really should watch Breaking Bad.
