Breaking Bad: Los Pollos Hermanos reviewed on Yelp

Yelp, Albuquerque, NM: Los Pollos Hermanos.

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.

People give Breaking Bad's Anna Gunn tons of crap for being the actor who plays Skyler White

"My character, to judge from the popularity of Web sites and Facebook pages devoted to hating her, has become a flash point for many people’s feelings about strong, nonsubmissive, ill-treated women. As the hatred of Skyler blurred into loathing for me as a person, I saw glimpses of an anger that, at first, simply bewildered me." From "I have a character issue," by Anna Gunn in the New York Times. Read the rest

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.
