He has built sort of an empire, though; and that was more important to him than money.

An emperor without clothes! No entourage; no visibility; no perks; no friends. All of which reinforces his self delusion. When he dies Jesse or Todd can carry on and he won't be missed by anyone except his son.

    Quebec Whodunit: 1/4 of Province’s Syrup Reserves Go Missing

    Forget about the upcoming election in Quebec, the big news out of the province is the huge breach of the province’s strategic reserve of maple syrup.

    Sticky-fingered thieves made off with almost 30 million Canadian dollars (US$30.4 million) worth of maple syrup from a reserve warehouse in rural Quebec, the provincial body responsible for managing the production of maple syrup said late Thursday. That’s more than a quarter of the province’s extra supply—stored each year to protect producers’ from the ups and downs of global supply and demand.

http://blogs.wsj.com/canadarealtime/201 ... o-missing/


Meanwhile, Canada is getting to the bottom of this outrageous crime....

    Quebec Provincial Police said Tuesday that they have arrested three people have been arrested in connection with the mass theft of maple syrup from a warehouse located in a town near Montreal, CNN reports. Five other suspects remain at large.

    The theft transpired over the span of one year, from August 2011 until July 2012, and was discovered during a routine inventory check. The warehouse contained up to 10 million pounds of syrup, but it is unclear how much went missing.

I watched the pilot yesterday, just to remind me of how it all began. I had forgotten how quickly woosy Walt turned bad. Basically in a few days. I have read about Walt transforming over time, but it's clear that his nerdy exterior was masking a seriously angry, self hating, narcissistic personality disorder, whose demons were set loose by his impending death. All of his future potential was visible.

poor Dean Norris must be feeling very confused at this point: on Breaking Bad he's in charge of unraveling Walt's evil empire, but meanwhile, over on Under The Dome he's busy creating one of his own!

Loving Under the Dome. Surprised to see 'Hank' on there next to the cast of relatively unknowns, apart from Sabrina the teenage witch's Aunt obviously.

I did not know his name but noticed he was on both series..I tried to watch UTD but missed some episodes, lost the thread and gave up.. never got into BB except skimming enought to make this observation.

In the real world Hank couldn't survive, but this is fiction and Hank is too good a character to kill off ...... I hope. Heisenberg's "love" of family just doesn't ring true.

Maybe the M60 is for a final showdown with Todd's uncle after he defied Walt and showed up to the tribal lands anyway?

The clips, the testimonials, and the webcam are hilarious. Also, if you click on "Se Habla Espanol" at the bottom of the page. there's another amusing piece.

For the first time this year I watched the episode "live" and not tape. I had to see what happened to Hank. This episode was a gut wrencher. I won't give out any spoilers but I texted my daughter (who lives 2 time zones west): "u r going 2 hate Walt."

Is there anyone, other than Saul, who does? My guess is Swastika Uncle gets the ricin cigarette. Or Walt smokes it himself.

I doubt Walt would subject himself to the terrors of ricin poisoning, unless he somehow felt the need to suffer for his sins (which, I suppose, could be). I suspect its target is either the Uncle, as you suggest, or alternatively Lydia. Those are really the only characters left at this stage. Jesse seems to obvious, and I think they'll save his fate for a grand showdown.

You're probably right. If the writers hold him true to character it depends on which Walt showed up with that scraggly beard. The egomaniac or the " I'm just a family man" delusional one.

Finally got around to watching the last three episodes in lieu of the Emmys last night. Was so inspired I wikied all five seasons synopsis. I don't have all the characters straight but apparently none have any redeeming qualities.
I am looking forward to the finale, hopefully before the facilitator has to make too many more Albuquerque-New Hampshire round trips.

A little let down to see the actor who played Landry in Friday Nite Lights in a rouge role. :(

Relieved they did not import Connie Britton and Minka Kelly :)

Hopefully Todd will come to a bitter end at the hands of Walt's M60. Connie is stuck in "Nashville" and Minka was too busy playing Jackie in "The Butler." I am in the midst of a BB marathon. I'm up to episode 35 and hope to finish before Sunday's finale. Jesse had better live!

although "marathon" still works on this board, note that the phenomenon of gorging on whole seasons of old TV series has now entered the lexicon as "binge-watching"

(I'm a serial offender: most recently redid last season's Sons of Anarchy in 3 days before this year's started anew)

I'm pretty sure Todd will go down at the hands of Jesse. They've set him (Todd) up as the nemesis.

Jesse takes out the skinheads (and himself) in one hellacious "oops" in the lab; Walt's too busy machine-gunning his former friend/partner who has dissed him on national TV.

(meanwhile, Skyler runs away with Saul.... :mrgreen: )

I'm binge watching because in half an hour I get to drink a half gallon of pre colonoscopy stuff. :D

If we dropped 100 gallons of that stuff on Syria, we could bypass the UN, Russia, Assad, and ALQ!
I remember my first one in the 80's. I was given a 10mg valium and a demerol. Then the RN told me to "be quiet" as I was disturbing the Doctor with my Gitmo noises. The next one they gave me Verced (?) and I remember being awake through the whole thing and not remembering a damn thing. Then came Michael Jackson's favorite drug (Profanol(?)) and blessed sleep, until the last minutes when I always wake up.... and don't care what they're doing. This time my first woman anesthesiologist. Cold as ice. When I told her I was awake, she put a pillow over my head. I kid you not.

Colonoscopy is child's play... wait'll you get to have a prostate biopsy :shock:

At the moment the only good thing about getting a week older every seven days is that I get to watch another episode of Breaking Bad.
Now after Sunday I need to find some other focus point! :lol:
Come to think of it I do have a pretty cool little grandson to hang out with :wink:
