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.
