Breaking Bad “Pilot”
The podcast with nothing much ado about aircrafts, and potentially everything ado with first episodes of a filmic series. Join us today as we cast judgement and determine if the intense drug-cooking drama Breaking Bad will be hoisted, or not hoisted: that is the question!
- Petard = bomb
- Hoist a pilot = bad episode
- Not hoist a pilot = good episode
Background: Jimbo watched the first season but got bored. Drew watched 5ish episodes but it wasn’t the escape show he was looking for. And Mo loved all of Breaking Bad and was coming in with a raging NoBo.
60 Sec Summary: Walter white is absolutely miserable. He hates his life and two jobs. To make matters worse he finds out he is terminally ill with an untreatable cancer of the lung. In the face of death, he decides to team up with an ex flunky student, Jesse, to cook, in his tighty whities of course, and sell meth to leave his family with money. Shit hits the fan. Tune in to see if Walter and Jesse can avoid those Petards
High Points: a lot. Walter White. Jesse. The characters. The opening. The musical cues.
Low Points: not much. The brother in law’s gun flagging. Another poor teacher. Drew didn’t love the en media res.
Crabman Award: The dude bro from the clothing store.
MVPs: Walter White. Skyler’s HJ. Capn Cook.
Dangling Threads of Interest: The actor RJ Mitte (Walter Jr.) and New Mexico’s beautiful landscapes,
Watch or Rewatch: Jimbo said no thanks to the surprise of Mo. Drew is going to try, depending on his mood
To Hoist or Not to Hoist?: very strong not hoist!
