thumbnail_RBEpisode7

What started as an idea for brief epilogue to celebrate the 10th anniversary of “Breaking Bad” turned into a feature length Netflix film. “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” serves as a coda to the hit television series that revolves around Jesse Pinkman, including flashbacks of his treatment under hostage to Todd and his crew of nazis, and how the collection of his experiences taught him how to handle life after meth.

Jerome and Kevin discuss their thoughts on the movie, where it falls in terms of importance in the Breaking Bad universe, and show some love for the late Robert Forster. Continue reading Reel Bad – A Breaking Bad Podcast – Episode 7: El Camino

Ben Phillips & Matt Waters continue to present 25 of their favourite movies from a given decade, this time with 2010 – 2019.

Brad, JUSTIN, and Kevin delve into the “real” Season 7 finale, where we get a heavy tease of Susan Strong’s origin and the potential of discovering where Finn comes from.

From there, Finn is forced to confront himself (literally), resulting in the hosts discussing the concept of Last Thursdayism, “The Good Place”, and “Future Man” to explain the concept of two Finns.

Finally, the second Finn comes to terms with being an individual, as the real Finn fails to take over for Doctor Princess (who is not an actual PhD recipient?!) Continue reading Flooping the Pig – Episode 69: “Fern”
