Say My Name

I have been at home sick for two days.  Yesterday I wore 4 layers of clothing and a winter hat while laying under the covers in bed. I'm currently sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, not getting any rest girl.   I blame it all on the cold weather camping which I blame on my husband which, therefore, makes my illness obviously his fault, too.  

1. I finished up Breaking Bad on Tuesday.  I full on wanted to scream when Hank announced that the crazy Nazi guy had made up his mind 10 minutes ago out there in the desert.  I also wanted to scream at Skylar for not just poisoning Walter at any point along the way.
2. I promptly announced over the water cooler at work that I had finished Breaking Bad.  Cue the lost hour of my life debating important issues like Walter's redeeming qualities, could there ever realistically be a sequel and the exact point when Walter turned the corner towards kingpin crazy.  My favorite though is the debate over the best quote from the show.  We narrowed it down to "I am the danger" and "Say my name."

On the one hand, "Say my name" is easier to work into casual conversation because people that haven't seen the show can appreciate it as a zany kind of comment to talk smack with.  It's also easy to picture on a t-shirt.  On the other hand, "I am the danger" is from an awesomely memorable and character defining scene but you'd have to have seen it to know that.  But it's the most fun quote to say to other people that have watched the show.  And by saying it to other people, I mean pretending you are Walter and saying it with the correct emphasis in the sentence, "I AM the danger."  Third place was hands down, "I am the one who knocks."   
 
3.  After watching 6 seasons of Jessie Pinkman, I have to resist the urge to work "Yo" into every sentence.  It's also a struggle to not use the word "Bitch" at the end of sentences instead of an exclamation mark.  First world problem. 
 
4. I'm currently experiencing Breaking Bad withdrawal.  I suppose that's the fall out from spending every free moment on Netflix binge watching and when there are no more episodes left you have to remember what you used to do with your evening.  I hadn't watched anything on my DVR in over 2 weeks.  Last night I discovered the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills started.  If a new season of any Real Housewives series starts and I'm not there to watch it, did the season really start? I say no.

5.  Real Housewives is very low commitment so it works perfect during my post Breaking Bad fallout.  Binge watching an entire season is fun because it eliminates pesky things like waiting for the new season to start to find out what happens.  But you can't rush from one series to the next.  During the fall out period you have to keep things light and not too demanding on your time or brain.  Cue the reality television.

I've finally stopped saying "bitch" - it's just such a perfect way to finish a sentence...loved BrBa; absolutely my favorite show even though I hated seeing Hank in the desert.

I've always wanted to watch Breaking Bad but I didn't want to jump into the middle of it. Now that it's all over, I want to watch it. I have heard nothing but great things about it!
Hope you feel better! That crap is going around...

We have always had so much in common when it comes to TV and now that you have seen Breaking Bad, the streak continues! I am going through such detox since it has gone off of the air, I don't know what to do with myself! And I will never forget the shock as I watched the events unfold when Hank was laying there in the desert. I actually let out a yelp, or howl, or some other guttural sound as shots rang out. That episode left me traumatized for days. And I agree with you..."I AM the danger." That's the best. I also like when he told Hank that if he truly doesn't know who he is, that maybe he should tread lightly. When he said that, I was like, "Oh!!! Walter! *boom! Drop the mic, walk away!*
