Don't miss the latest episode recap on Boing Boing, right here (spoilers!).
Last night's episode of Breaking Bad was packed with great acting, great landscapes and twists and turns, but "one extra stole the show," according to Newscastic. Robert Sanchez, on-screen for 15 seconds with no dialogue, had an epic mustache that "Puts Tom Selleck’s mustache to shame and makes Hulk Hogan’s mustache beg for mercy. The actor has, no joke, award-winning facial hair."
Jus Reign explains:
Waltaar, an avid lover of Mithai (Indian Sweets) finds out that he has been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, which constrains him from consuming any more Mithai due to the high sugar content. So as a solution, Waltaar, alongside his former student Jassi, begin cooking fat free, low sugar, healthy Mithai and begin selling it on the streets... which leads to all sorts of drama. BREAKING BARFI. DUN DUN.

The cryptic flash-forwards in the second season of Breaking Bad were among the most controversial moments for the show. Oblique, mysterious, leading toward an entirely unexpected ending for the season, and they still stand out, stylistically, as one of the strangest narrative decisions on the show. The glimpses into the future at the beginning of the fifth season, and at the start of tonight’s midseason premiere “Blood Money,” convey a different effect.Read the rest

Flavorwire has a post with a bunch of images of Breaking Bad fan tattoos. But it's not just fans who are obsessed with permanent fleshy commemorations of the long-running AMC series, which comes to an end soon. Actors Bryan Cranston (who plays the show's protagonist, Walter White) and Aaron Paul (who plays his meth-cooking sidekick, Jesse Pinkman) each got inked when they finished shooting the show's last season.

The AMC dramatic series Breaking Bad returns on August 11 for its final episodes, and Boing Boing video collaborator Joe Sabia has built a very cool project for trufans to enjoy. Above, "9 Minute Breaking Bad," a supercut of every Breaking Bad episode to date.
I did this with my childhood friend Paul Gulyas, and it was our first recap since Seven Minute Sopranos 6 years ago. We did this to promote BettingBad.com, a website me and some friends made that lets everyone bet on what they think will happen in the final season of Breaking Bad, collect points throughout the season on correct bets, and compete with friends and strangers. It's like a Fantasy Sports experience for TV dramas.
AMC today released the poster for the final 8 episodes of Breaking Bad. Walter White (Bryan Cranston) stands in the Albuquerque desert with the tagline "Remember My Name" printed over his body. The final episodes will air beginning Sunday, Aug. 11 at 9/8c on AMC. I can't wait!

In case you thought Marie on Breaking Bad was a little annoying, let this interview with Betsy Brandt change your mind
Walter White from Breaking Bad, immortalized in street art on Rivington Street, NYC. Photographed and shared with Boing Boing by Daniel Albanese. This wheatpaste work is credited to street artist "ME." Bowery Boogie blog says,
Much of his work is co-opting established logos to fit the name, whether it’s the ME in Mets or Supreme. And of course, there’s the awesome Mitt Romney spoof that parlays the dog incident with the Griswold family vacation.
There's a needlepoint on this same theme.

To celebrate the premiere of Breaking Bad's Fifth Season this week, my fellow trufan Miles O'Brien and I dug into the show's vaults to explore the top 10 chemistry moments in Breaking Bad, from seasons One through Four. Only, there was so much awesome science, we had to choose 11 top chemistry moments, instead.

I'm a super fan of Breaking Bad and Boingboing as well.... is there something to the shared alliteration? I thought you might like this stencil I found in Vancouver a few months ago. Someone did a whole series of Mr White. They were fantastic.
