Tips On How To Avoid Conflict – A Breaking Bad Episode Review (Season 1 Episode 4 – Cancer Man)

Despite the joke in my title, that final scene with Walt blowing up the car was my least favorite part of this episode.  After the very focused tension of the last two episodes, the show did need to step back…

Why LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t a True Spur

Update in January of freakin' 2019: LMA proved me wrong in the last 1.5 years. I'm now a fan. I sometimes think I'm a huge softie when it comes to the Spurs and the NBA in general. I am the…

Tips On How To Properly Use A Bike Lock – A Breaking Bad Episode Review (Season 1 Episode 3 – …And the Bag’s in the River)

Tips on How to Productively Cope With Poor Health – A Breaking Bad Review (Season 1 Episode 1 – Pilot)

Could Breaking Bad have begun its first episode in a less unorthodox fashion? Sure, it could but then it wouldn’t be Breaking Bad.
