The chicken is nice and tender with a great blend of spices. The fries are maybe not the greatest though, so minus one star. However, if you are looking for some excellent fried chicken, you can do a lot worse than this place! My only complaint is that there are sometimes people who just seem to be sitting in the restaurant, not really eating or anything. I mean, it's fried chicken so if you see someone just sitting, not eating, it's kind of weird. I mean, sometimes I'll see people there before I get in and they'll still be sitting there after I leave. Kind of weird but they don't seem to be bothering anyone.[HT: Maggie Koerth-Baker]
Roughly 13 minutes of LOL. Slow clap, gentlemen. Slow clap.
As a medical drama, Breaking Bad is pretty great, says one practicing MD (this cancer patient agrees)
At Slate, Haider Javed Warraich writes about how awesome "Breaking Bad" is from the perspective of a guy who's a practicing resident in internal medicine at Harvard.
"If Walt had received aggressive social support early on," asks Warraich, "Would it have helped him cope better with his diagnosis and averted his foray into the 'empire business'?" Read the rest

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.

Last night, Mythbusters aired a Breaking Bad special, in which some of these top chemistry moments were explored, and debunked -- or affirmed. You've gotta see Adam Savage as Heisenberg.
The first of the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad aired last night. Read Kevin McFarland's season preview on Boing Boing here, and read his episode recap of "Blood Money" here. Below, a few of the more interesting video and remixes, an animated retelling of one great scene in last night's ep, and a parody from Weird Al Yankovic. Spoilers galore.
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.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 final 8 episodes air on AMC starting this Sunday, August 11, and we'll have weekly recaps/analysis here on Boing Boing.
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!
