Last night, people raced, Walt was in trouble with drugs and Cherry could have used some to make his job more interesting…for us.
Still mad about Edie’s firing.
Breaking Bad: Chooch
Breaking Bad is like watching yourself in slo-mo in a terrible car accident. You know it’s not going to end well. It can’t. But you hold out hope that everything will somehow be okay. The writers prey on that glimpse of hope…..
This week we are, thankfully, steered away from the Walt/Skylar divorce drama & back into the world of meth-making. Of course, in the opening scene, we are reminded of those menacing twins with their big “Axe of Tuco” justice. As we watch them hack up a cop who stumbles onto their newest hide-out, we wonder who’s next. I personally think they’re boring. I find my little pomeranian more menacing than those two idiots. I can always hope they’ll hack up Walt’s old lady.
Jesse is back in business. He is getting his old gang of doped-up, drug pushers up to speed on the way things will go down from now on. Det. Hank is staking the place out. He’s figured out that Jesse has the RV lab. It’s when he calls Walt, asking about Jesse’s drug dealing habits, that things take on that “car accident” panic I was talking about. Walt goes to the mechanic who’s working on the RV & tells him the DEA is up their ass…the panic begins. One of Jesse’s stooges calls Jesse…. panic again & this time Jesse’s panic leads Hank right to the RV….. now I’ve got that knot in my stomach…I just know things are not going to go well. Walt & Jesse are stuck inside that fuckin’ RV with Hank circling it like a junkyard dog…. panic panic panic!!! I will not spoil it for those who haven’t watched it yet…& leave it there…..
By the way, Walt gets to use his brand-new, state-of-the-art, meth lab this episode & gets a new assistant who’s even nerdier than Walt. Their cooking segment is a joy to watch.
How can you NOT love those Cowboys on the Amazing Race. I have never seen two guys embrace their stereo-typical lifestyles in real life the way they do. They are everything you would expect from John Wayne & Jimmy Stewart if they were in the race. They make me smile everytime they get airtime.
Celebrity Apprentice had their big charity fund-raising challenge. With only two boys left, the Naked Chef went with Holly, Cyndi & Summer while Bret got Sharon & Maria. I loved this episode & thru the whole thing, all I could think of was Bret laying in an ICU in critical condition in the REAL real world. I’d have been soooo pissed if Trump had fired Bret last night. Thankfully no one went home, so it was a happy ending. I just hope it will be the same for Bret Michaels. NBC did acknowledge his illness & well wishes for his swift recovery.
Desperate Housewives: Hypnotoad
So, we all know that Eddie’s the strangler now, and in an effort to garner some sympathy for him, Cherry & Co. decide to give him a sob-story background. By which I mean, his mom drinks a lot. And apparently that’s enough to turn someone into a serial killer. This new revelation also provides us some fodder for retcon, as we’re treated to the requisite Desperate Housewives Flashback Episode. Mary Alice met Eddie when he was 4 and his dad left him and his mom. And Mary Alice was there to watch Eddie’s mom’s drinking habits blossom into a cute little addiction.
Gabby met Eddie when he was like 12 or something, and he helps her move into her house on Wisteria, and then she emotionally devastates Li’l Eddie when Carlos ONCE AGAIN orders her to do something (break off her friendship with Eddie). Bree hired Eddie to paint her house, and Eddie falls in love with Danielle, so Bree tells Eddie’s Alco-Mom, who in turn embarrasses Eddie in front of Bree. Eddie is all, All I want is some love! And to strangle hookers, apparently, which he does immediately following his conversation with Bree. Susan helps Eddie with his art, but she devastates him by marrying Mike (again). So Eddie strangled Julie cuz he thought she was Susan. Lynette feels bad for Eddie, so she invites him to stay with her and her 10 bajillion kids because the Scavos can totally afford to do that. But little does she know what secret Eddie’s hiding . . .
