I just finished season two, so I have a few more episodes to catch up to most of you. It's a trip for sure!

I had no idea that the character of Bogdan, the car wash owner, was played by an actual scientist at the Argonne National Laboratory outside Chicago. It appears he auditioned for a role as an extra when he was working at Los Alamos, was given one line to speak and parlayed that into appearances on six episodes.

Here's a pretty good interview with Marius Stan, a computational scientist who currently works at the Argonne Labs outside Chicago but prior to that worked at Los Alamos, which put him in position to audition for the role of Bogdan Wolynetz, the car wash's original owner and Walt's moonlighting job nemesis.

I missed it when it was broadcast locally on a PBS news program but they rebroadcast it the other night. This guy was pretty good considering he never acted a day in his life before Breaking Bad.

Thumbs up Tuco Tells Us About A Warranty

Hear drug lord Tuco Salamanca read the full warranty for the Nissan NV200 little cargo van. Lose yourself in all the rolled ‘r’s. Empty your mind. Think about rust protection. Play it again.

Let the madness take you.

So, yes, I'm stoked. Let the saga of Jesse Pinkman roll on and merge with Better Call Saul.

Breaking Bad: The Movie.

Wow, I’ve been asleep on this. This looks interesting and I like Saul better than Breaking Bad.

El Camino

It starts right where the series ended and has many flashbacks to his time in captivity. The problem with that is how much everyone has aged and Jesse Plemons has put on a lot of weight. I enjoyed it but don’t consider it a must see.

It'll be used as a bridge to season five of Better Call Saul. The timeline supports this as Saul transitioned to Gene.

I enjoyed the film, but seeing Fat Todd was almost as unsettling as seeing Fat Thor.

Oh, fuck Lydia.

Wife and I really enjoyed Breaking Bad, and we both summed up El Camino in one word - BORING.

I chose DISAPPOINTING, but BORING works, too. Thank goodness that Better Call Saul has lived up to expectations.

So far.

If you think Better Call Saul is good compared to El Camino - El Camino must be really bad. Better Call Saul is 85% boring, 15% ok.

We'll have to agree to disagree on that. I'll agree that BCS has had some 'dry spells', but so did Breaking Bad, The Sopranos and pretty much every other excellent show you could name (Hell, there were even portions of Jackson's LotRs trilogy that were snooze-fest material). But, overall, the story arc of BCS has been on target. El Camino, not so much.

Hahaha. Spot on.

It felt like the writers did it in their spare time, while not communicating with each other, resulting in a choppy movie that had a handful of unrelated story arcs in it.

The only thing I enjoyed was the scenery at the end.

I like Better Call Saul more than Breaking Bad.

El Camino was worth watching, but so-so at most.

The movie was a decent time killer.
Glad it was on Netflix; I wouldn’t shed any extra cabbage to see it.
