Big Love, Sister Wives and Creepy Actors

I’ve been watching Big Love the past few weeks. The dynamic of one man with multiple wives is foreign to most of us but it’s worked for thousands of years in certain civilizations. Big Love normalizes it. Sister Wives seems to exploit it.

In another life I had a Mormon roommate. We became best friends and with our doggies had a sort of little “family.” Her family is very high up in the Mormon community and I learned many things about the religion from her. This Jewish girl even went to a church dance with her!! The men were all gentlemen and I had a good time. Nobody ever tried to convert me and living with her was one of the most peaceful times of my life.

As I watch Big Love now, I’ve learned a new word (shout out to IDModo):
Wife #1 just told Wife #3 she was being obstreperousness. Good word and no red squiggley line..

Harry Dean Stanton makes me cringe!

Sometimes an actor is so good at being bad that one role could haunt you forever.

While watching Big Love, I have now added Harry Dean Stanton to my list of creepy actors. I always liked him before. Repo Man and my favorite Brat Pack movie, Pretty in Pink, but in Big Love his character is pure evil and he’s very good at portraying the head of a Polygamist dynasty.

Another actor I cannot see with getting shivers is Tony Todd in Candyman. That movie was very suspenseful and about as horror as I will go. I won’t see Saw or any of the over-the-top grotesque gore. I like suspense.

The third actor is a character actor and I don’t know his name or what movie he’s in that creeped me out. I only know I see him often and remember something negative and get an “icky” feeling. Someday I’ll figure out his name.

“Grey’s Anatomy” May 13th Episode: Recap (spoilers)

First scene is Bailey with a hot, shirtless man. It’s obvious they are about to “do it” which is what Bailey needs.

Teddy enters Sloan’s apartment, walks in, undresses, and sees another woman in the bed as he comes out of the shower, shirtless, of course.

In the elevator, Bailey is singing a song and Mark and Derek ask why. She’s just happy (after sex glow) and giddy and doesn’t say anything. Then the guy (I’ll look up his name, McHotCoco?) gets on the elevator and he’s singing the same happy sex song. hmmmm? Subtle.

Demi Lovato is playing Hayley, a schizophrenic girl who’s parents are about to commit her. She grabs a sharp implement to kill herself and Alex Karev is calm and talks her down with his charm and cuteness.

She keeps insisting she’s not crazy and she gives Alex the sharp tool.

She’s tied to the bed. “Page Shephard,” says Karev.

Shep wants to run some tests. They want to find out what is really wrong but the parents, especially the father, are just convinced she’s schizophrenic.

They finally agree to run more tests.

Sloan with Amber, a driving-while-texting victim. They will remove the burned area and regraph her skin and hair. The entire side of her face is burned.

Old couple reunite while their gurneys are passing in the hall. Marion Ross, was his wife’s best friend and supposed to be the maid of honor. They were in-love but both married other people. They were each other’s first.

They were each in their respective exam rooms telling the doctors of their love story gone bad. He wanted to call off the wedding. She left across the country and he married his wife and she married someone else. They both never stopped loving or thinking of each other. Both of them reminisced with sweet love in their voices.

The other doctors put them together but Yang says he has a bad heart. “A happy patient is a healthy patient.”

“You’re okay with this?” barks Christina?

“How Romantic” — says the doctor in charge.

Checking Hayley’s brain. All clear. Alex is saying “I know crazy, I grew up with crazy . . . ” They all decide to advocate for the patient and continue tests. She’s crying as she comes out of the MRI. I think she’s crying because she’s relieved that someone, Karev, is listening to her cries for help and not just announcing her “crazy” and needing to be committed.

Lexie asks Alex “are we dating? . . . what are we? I”m over Mark.”

He kisses her and says, “We’re a thing . . . we see each other . . . whatever.” it was cute and she looked happy when he walked away. She’s actually a very pretty woman and I think she looks good as a blond.

In surgery the Chief is commenting on Owen and Teddy’s surgery “shorthand.” Remembers having it with with a former colleague. Christina immediately knows that Chief is talking about Ellis, Meredith’s mother.

Alex and Mer talking about the girl they were testing and Mer says that Alex is becoming a real doctor. Sort of like saying ‘you’re growing up.’. Christina sits at another table because she’s mad at Mer for giving her doubts about moving in with Owen.

Alex suggests they ask “Lexopedia” if she has a mysterious diagnosis that she possibly read about a long time ago. Mer says, “She’s not a book.” and Lexie sheepishly says, “I kinda am.”

Lexie remembers some article, June ‘o4, green cover. Wow. Alex will check it out and he leave the sisters alone. Lexie tells Mer that she thinks it’s gross that Mark is with Teddy. Mer says, “you’re with Alex.”

Then Christine, with emotion, comments on the conversation that Owen and Dr. Weber had in the operating room.

“Owen is Ellis, Teddy is Dr Weber, I’m Thatcher?” and she’s very upset. Mer, speechless for once, says, “I don’t know . . .”

“Forget it” spouts Christina as she storms away.

More tests for Hayley. Big eyes. Mom is complaining that these test are torture but she cooperates. Alex has her hold her nose and blow. This is a very specialized test. Her eyes start convulsing back and forth. She cries “no” and rips off the apparatus on her head.

“What did you just do???” said an angry parent.

“I diagnosed her,” says confident, happy Dr. Karev.

Bailey sees her man flirting. Flirting hard. Giggling, touching. She looks PISSED off and walks away without speaking to him. “Miranda? Miranda?:? Shit. I didn’t know she had a first name or I thought her first name was Bailey.

Amber, the car crash victim has to have 3 fingers amputated. This has to be done before her hair graphs. Bailey says she could cry. Amber’s annoying friend says, “NO, we stay positive.” Bailey, “she can be positive tomorrow,.” The girl breaks down crying and is grateful for the freedom of being able to feel sorry for herself and weep.

Back to the other patient, Derek and Alex explain the condition to the parents. It’s an ear thing that’s very difficult to diagnose. She’s not schizophrenic and this can be corrected with surgery.

Miranda and Sloan are alone and she starts grilling him. “Is one woman ever enough for some men?” She’s thinking of her guy but he’s thinking of himself and says:.

“Teddy and I were never exclusive. Were you and your guy exclusive?
“We’re not talking about me” and she leaves the room.

The old couple are now in the same room. He asks her to live with him. She says they barely know each other. He wants her to think about it before surgery (not sure who’s surgery).

Marion Ross, Emmy winner and icon, “I got over you . . . Henry” She explains the joy of her family and her life with her husband, children and grandchildren. “I got over you. I’m sorry.”

Everybody, especially Callie, is heartbroken.

Surgery on the car crash victim. Sloan wants to do the hair restoration while she’s anesthetized. They decide to go for it.

Christine has a sad look and walks up to Mer, hesitates and says, “do you think your mom ever got over the chief? Do you think she still loved him after all those years”

“She loved him till the day she died.”

“What were you trying to tell me about Teddy and Owen? Tell me what you know.”

Mer says something stupid that reminded me of Kelly from RHONY, “There is you and me, and me and Derek, and I’m telling you because of you and me but I can’t say more because of me and Derek.” yeah, whatever.

Christina says, “I need there to be a me and Own>” Ohe, I hear you sister. I’d like there to be a me and Owen too.”

Mer finds Derek and exclaims, “I hate your job.”

“I love you,” responds her post-it note husband.

“Do you think he loves her? Teddy?”

“You can’t tell Christina.”

“I know, that’s why I hate your job.”

“Wanna hug?”

Surgery and Lexie is being sarcastic to Callie about Mark sleeping around. Callie wants the old couple to be together. She wants to “believe” Good luck with that. I do too.

The girl is complaining about the scar. Her delusional friend says, “you’ll be doing shampoo commercials in no time.”

The friend states “we’re alive, it’s better than the alternative.”

Amber starts telling her friend that she can’t drive because of her fear after the accident.. She’s begging her best friend and she want to be REAL for once, !

The friend loses it talking about romantic comedies. They laugh together. Mer watches & thinks about Christine.

Mer goes to Owen and says something I can only describe as ‘ripping him a new one.’ She basically told him to make up his mind and decide if he will be ‘that guy’ for Christina.” She was brutal. I liked it.

Mark and Teddy. “I should have knocked, it’s over.” Don’t know if she meant the incident or the relationship.

Callie wants Mark to go to Lexie. “She’s with Karev” he whines.

Callie thinks they are the love of each other lives and wants Mark to go to her now. They hug. They sleep together when she’s not gay.

Owen explains to Christine about wanting the hospital to hire someone else in stead of Teddy. He’s trying to’get better” and doesn’t understand how he feels.

They are fighting. “I don’t know what I feel for Teddy.” It’s all related with his ptsd and it’s confusing. She’s crying and Owen is yelling that he shouldn’t have to explain himself to her or Meredeth. Teddy was eavesdropping. She was there to notify Owen about the old man patient.

The old man crashed. He wakes up and they tell him they need to insert pacemaker.

Marion Ross says she’s moving across the country to be with him and she never forgot him. What a great actress.

“how long do you need me to wait before I propose?” he says.

Christina stomps out, Owen chases, “Christina?” . . .

“Don’t.

Hayley is waking up. She feels “good.” “I’m Good.” I’M GOOD” mommy hugs her, everybody is happy. On FOX this story could have been an entire episode of “House.”

Bailey at the elevator and guy wants to talk to her. “I get it , you want to see other people” she spouts at the man she recently had sex with.

He explains that he’s nice to Liz cuz she’s such a bitch. He says he flirts with her because if he’s nice it benefits his schedule and who he might work with. It’s just “his way” and he really doesn’t give it his “good flirting.”

He tells her that the Good flirting is for Miranda because HE Means it. She starts the singlemomswhine . . . “I don’t have time for games.”

“I’m not playing games, I’m in this for real.” Yeah, whatever. They are in the elevator together and they hold hands.

Lexie was right about the diagnoses and Alex want them to celebrate at the bar. He walks off for a minute and Mark walks up and tells Lexie he’s still in love with her. He asks for another chance. “I’m in love with you.”

“Karev, he’s, . . .I I have a boyfriend . . .”

“Oh well, I’m saying you could have a husband.” He walks away ansd Karev puts his arm around her, “you ready?” he slaps her ass and they walk off with their arms around each other.

Callie on elevator with her ex, Arizona. They broke-up because Callie wants kids and Arizona absolutely does not want children. Awkward. Hot lesbian kissing.

That’s what elevators are for.

and Arizona she walks off . . . no words spoken.

Der & Mer in bed and Christine storms in. Der leaves and Christine gets in the bed. “Well, I’m not moving in with Owen.” Mer shows her “her room” in the new house they were building in the woods.

They cuddle.

“Breaking Bad” Season 3, Episode 8 “

Jesse removing hospital gown and getting dressed. Wincing in pain with every move. He’s skinny and has a skull tattoo on his back and other tattoos on his arms. He’s being wheeled outside and the orderly is going to just leave him out front. Jesse lights up and the orderly tells him he has to be 20 feet from the front door to smoke.

“Roll me further, bitch.” Jesse, ever the charmer. Orderly walks away.

Ambulance pulls up and it’s Hank. Jesse rolls up and sees. He’s in shock and follows the EMTs and the gurney. Hank is on the way to the OR.

Jesse goes back outside and sits back in the chair and starts rolling/walking down the block. One of his druggies picks him up and asks how Jesse feels, he says, “actually, I’m great” and has a big smile.

Gale is upset with being fired. Doesn’t understand and he’s whining to Walt. He wants Walt to elaborate and  Walt won’t and is trying to get out of having to explain his reasons to Gale. “We have different rhythms. It’s as if I’m classical and you are more Jazz . . .””

Then Jesse comes in. “Oh, shit, this is the bomb! What’s up PARTNER!” Gale realizes it’s his replacement.  “It’s all shiny up in here” Jesse is yelling with glee and Gale says, “this makes no sense. So, I guess this is . . . .” and they shake hands.

Jesse sounds like he’s having an orgasm. “Wow.”

Walt wants to get right to work, show Jesse the new things and start cooking. Jesse realizes that Walt doesn’t know about Hank because Walt has been locked in the lab for many hours.

Back at the hospital, doctors, big words, beeps, blood, Walt comes to hospital and they let him in because he’s family. He and Marie hug. Walt Jr. and Skylar are there too. He’s hugging Marie and saying “I’m so sorry.” and Hank is still in surgery. Marie says, “They shot him 4 times.” Walt Jr. leaves to get fresh air when his dad asked how he’s doing.

Walt starts asking for details and finds out the tattoos showed a drug cartel. No motive, could be a message to the DEA or against Hank for his investigation.

Hank’s partner says, “They had an axe.”

“Where are they,” asked Walt,

“Hank got then.  Considering he didn’t have his gun . . .” His boss explains that he took away Hank’s weapon. Marie starts yelling at the boss. Walt is right between them. Marie is blaming his partner for not backing him up and his boss for not supporting him and taking his gun. Marie kicks them out of the hospital room and tells them the “DEA is not welcome here.”

“It’s not just them, it’s YOU Walt. This Pinkman that Hank was looking for. Hank would have never even heard his name if you hadn’t bought marijuana from him.  . . .” She’s blaming Walt but Skylar is saying “It’s not his fault.” Marie breaks down and Walt comforts her.

Hospital, elapsed time. Walt staying with Marie, Skylar and Walt Jr. and a few guards. Deafening silence. Walt rips annoying card out of magazine to steady wobbling table in the waiting room.

“HELLO,” Jesse yelling,. “Helloo hello heloooooooo”

Jesse is enjoying the lab. “Yo yo yo, Jesse Pinkman in the house.” Starts banging on the big steel drums, laughing, going around in circles on the cool chair. I guess he feels like king of the world. He’s actually “high” without doing drugs.

Walt gets a page at the hospital. Skylar gives the bitchy face to him but he gets up to get the phone.

“Yo, we working sometime this year?”

Walt mad that Jesse called the hospital. Jesse wants to work, it telling Walt about responsibilities. It was cute because for a moment their roles were switched and Jesse was telling Walt what to do. Jesse said he’ll just cook on his own and Walt says “you will do no such thing.” Jesse, said, “Hey, I’m not your bitch to order around.” Skylar came up to Walt and as he was hanging up the phone Jesse yelled, “hey tell your douche bag brother-in-law to head towards the light.”

Walt wants to lie to Skylar about the call, she just walks away. She doesn’t care.

They all go to breakfast, things still silent and tension filled. Marie starts freaking out over a filthy fork. Sky says water spots and Marie is spazzing saying it’s filled with sick-people germs. Marie is losing it over what she thinks is a dirty fork. She calls the hospital a death trap.

Walt gives a nice speech about how he survived and how scared he was before his cancer surgery. More Emmy winning acting for Bryan Cranston. Discussing his fear of surgery is universal to everybody who’s had it or has waited while a loved one is in surgery. He reminds Sky how when driving there every light was green.  All he could think about is ” why today. Why cant a have a few extra minutes in the car with my family. I never wanted to be stuck in traffic so much in my life.”

“I survived this place and I’m not half the man your husband is.”

He reaches for Skylar’s hand and she holds his back.

Juan from the cartel is blaming Gus claiming the cousins wouldn’t act on their own. He’s wondering who ordered the hit against Hank. One cousin survived and is in custody. Gus knows that cousin must die.

Hank is out of surgery on his way to recovery. They can’t see him till he stabilizes

Marie doesn’t want to go home and either does Walt Jr. Walt asks if anybody else is dying to brush their teeth and he offers to “swing by” Marie’s place and get a few things.

Downstairs. DEA agents and cops are everywhere waiting to hear about Hank. Hank’s partner introduces him to the other cops who are all worried about Hank.

Hank’s partner talks about the surviving twin. He’s pissed off that the scum gets great medical care and pain meds. He wants to show Walt what “Hank did to that bastard”

Tons of cops “Comfortable you piece of shit?” he says to the man in the sleeping man in a hospital bed.

Cousin wakes up. Opens eyes. SEES WALT. Nostrils flair and he tries to sit up. Beeping increases and he throws off his covers and shows no legs. He falls out of bed trying to get to Walt and is crawling on the floor with his leg stumps bleeding all over the floor.

Jesse back in the lab playing on the chair.  He’s in the yellow suit and trying to entertain himself, I guess. He’s groaning, bored, poking around the lab looking for something to help him blow up his yellow suit. He finds an inflating device and blows up his yellow suit to look like the Michellin man . . . goof ball.

He hears someone and says “Finally, about damn time” but it’s one of Gus’s guys and he asks “why isn’t there anything cooking,.”

Walt in car gets another call at the hospital. Surrounded by DEA agents he pretends Jesse is a Reverend. He calls back on his cell phone and Jesse wants to start cooking. He tells Walt that some guy came by the lab and Walt was startled when he asked if it was Gus. Jesse said no, it was one of the non important dudes.

Walt asks Jesse if he remembers what Tuco said in the desert. He remembered that Tuco said someone was coming after them. “The Cousins,” Walt remembered and Jesse agreed.

Back in the waiting room Walt brings stuff for everybody. Marie and Sky go to wash their faces. Walt & Walt Jr. are alone and he gives him a book and tries to talk to him about it. “Uncle Hank gave it to me.” The book is about a big drug lord in the 80s. A DEA book. Walt Jr obviously admires Uncle Hank and explains how the criminals are always famous but the good guys never get ink like the bad guys do.”

Walt’s cell phone rings and he steps away from Jr. He’s lying to Gus saying they are hard at work. He tells Gus he can’t keep the schedule and he blames it on Gale screwing things up. He’s hemming and hawing, making excuses. Assures Gus they will cook through the weekend and have 400 lbs by next week. He gave his word. “Thank you for the update,” says Gus.

Walt still at hospital talking to Hank’s partner and trying to get information. He’s asking about who the men are and he’s trying to be subtle and casual. Ah, partner’s name is Steve. How could I not know that? Steve. . . . . STEVE. . . . ok. sorry, I like the name Steve.

Steve says, “I’d love to walk in and shoot that bastard right in the head.”

“Me too,” says Walt.

Food is being donated and brought in from Gus’s Chicken place and he’s feeding the entire DEA! He’s even bringing it by personally. Walt looks scared, elevator dings. Commercial.

I didn’t pay attention but AMC just showed scenes from next week. Why do they do that? I heard others complain about them doing it last week and they did it again. I was busy fixing typos . . . .

Walt’s family is eating chicken and Mr. Fring is talking to Marie and SKylar. Walt is stiff and scared. Fring is good. because he knows how to talk to the DEA and isn’t nervous. Boss explains that Fring was a sponsor to a charity Mr. Fring tells Mr. White that his name came up. Fring explains that he heard about Walt’s health and hopes all is okay. He says he saw that by Hank’s expression that it was clear how deeply Hank cares for him.

They Thank him. Walt sits. He looks petrified but he says he didn’t say thank you and will walk him out. Fring asks all the DEA if they are enjoying the chicken. Walt tries to speak with him. “You knew, you knew my brother in law was with the DEA” Walt says, “he’s not a problem.”

“You being here, is this some sort of message” asks Walt.

“I hide in plain sight, same as you.” Says Mr. Gustav Fring.

He asks about he attack on Hank and Gus says nothing. They fake thanks and Gus Fring walks away.

Some cops start running up the stairs. The surviving cousin is crashing. No pulse. He’s dead. All the DEA see it and are glad. Walt is not sad.

Chicken place. Gus gets call and goes outside. Juan tells him he has Federalies surrounding his house. He suspect Gus is behind this. Gus stays cool. Juan is right and realizes that Gustavo probably set this up so he can have a bigger territory.

Juan threatens Gus, “When I get proof and the other find out what you’ve done, we pay you a visit.”

Glass breaks and gunfire. Spanish yelling and Juan gets gunned down… Gus smiles, breaks his cell phone and walks back into the restaurant.

At the hospital, Skylar is leaning on Walt sleeping. Doctor says he’s stable enough for visitors only family. Marie says “We’re ALL family” they all go into Hank’s room and surround his bed. Marie kisses his head. They all look scared and worried, especially Walt. Marie grabs Hank’s hand. Show over.

“Breaking Bad” Season 3, Episode 7 “One Minute”

Mexican children playing . . . old cell phone ringing (huge). This is the past. Tio is a younger man talking about his “product”, and a deal. |Never trust a South American. They are dirty people.”

Boy says wishes brother was dead. Tio whistles the boy to come over to him and get him a beer. The boy reaches into the tub of ice water and grabs a beer. Tio says, “no, a cold one.” the boy grabs another beer and Tio grabs his head and holds it under the ice cold water.

Tio is drowning boy and saying “you want your brother dead, you’re going to have to tgriv harder. He’s drowing the bay and his brother is fighinting the old man and trying to save his twin brother. He finally slaps his uncle across the face and he finally lets go.

Boy is coughing, scared, they both look at at Tio “Family is All” Both boys are Scared shitless. Yeah, me too.

Twins were reminiscing and lighting candles at the alter of Hank Schrader.

====

Jesse opens door to his house as Hank pulls up, “You got nothing on me yo . . call my laugher . . .” Hank proceeds to beat the shit out of Jesse. “Who you working with?” Jesse passes out, Hank stops and, I guess, calls the ambulance. He almost looks like he feels guilty but I think he’s just ashamed that he lost his cool. He didn’t get answers.

Police want Hank’s statement.

Saul taking pictures of Jesse at the hospital,. “Get out of Jail Free card.” Saul is gloating about the “pr poop storm” if this story gets out. This beating, “best thing for you . . .” Right? Right.

Walt shows up at hospital. “You are now officially the cute one. Paul, meet Ringo, Ringo . . . Paul.” (Saul, of course).

Walt says he never saw this coming and “what happens now.”

“What happens now? I’ll tell you what happens now. Your scumbag brother-in-law is finished. Done. You understand? I will own him when this is over. Every cent he earns, every cent his wife earns, is mine. Anyplace he goes, anywhere he turns, I’m gonna be there, grabbing my share. He’ll be scrubbing toilets in Tijuana for pennies, and I’ll be standing over him to get my cut. He’ll see me when he wakes up in the morning, and when he crawls to sleep in whatever rat hole’s left for him after I shred his house down. I will haunt his crusty ass forever. Until the day he sticks a gun in his mouth and pulls the trigger, just to get me out of his head… That’s what happens next.”

Speechless Walt. Saul doesn’t like that strategy. Trying to convince Jesse to not go after Hank. “Jesse, Move ON with your life” . . . Jesse says he wants a new RV to start cooking again. He says if he gets caught, he will give up the great Heisenberg ! “you’re my free pass, . . . bitch.”

Saul & Walt talking. “There’s no honor among thieves, except us, of course.” ha ha. Wanting Jesse to come around or they’ll have to talk “options.”

Hank is giving his report, explaining the camper, warrant and the fake call about Marie being injured. Went back to salvage yard and RV was gone. His lawyer stops the questioning.

Mr. Pinkman is pressing charges. Jesse is clean and even refusing doctor ordered pain meds. They take pictures of Hank’s hands, for the record.

Hank is packing up for the evening. People are looking at him with pity. Elevator opens with Maria inside and Hank starts bawling like a baby. Elevator opens and they are standing, stoic and serious. Marie is talking him up, “you’ve been too good to them . . .”

Skyler going to Walt’s place as he’s, once again, making his lunch to take to work. She wants to talk to him, he lets her in. Place looks nice, clean, organized and she says, “I guess crime does pay.”

“I don’t suppose you just came by to insult me?” Says Walt.

She asks if he knows about Hank and starts telling Walt about Jesse and the RV. She’s afraid it might lead back to Walt. Why does she whisper,? I have to turn the volume up. She’s complaining that Hank might lose everything and she wants Walt to help him by contacting Pinkman and convince him to drop the charges. He claims they are “not friends”.

“Hank is your family.’ ‘Not currently. I’m late, I have to go.”

Walt goes to lab and Gale “was starting to get worried.” Walt is being curt, sarcastic and Gale is being kissy ass and eager. Walt doesn’t want to like him because he knows he has to fire him soon. Gale says, “you know, this might be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” Walt nods reluctantly.

Twins. Shiny suits at a big truck. The trucker is babbling about a chick and sex and whatever and you know they will kill him in a sec. He’s selling guns, machine guns “well, take a gander . . .”
They won’t be paying. It’s obvious this guy is getting his last words out. “What is it you want, what is it you need, what can I do you for?”

more fast talk. “Vests.” Says a twin. “They work?”
“Yeah, don’t leave home without it.”They shoot him, to see if it works. “you broke my fucking rib you son of a bitch” Twin takes the cash, counts out whatever, and the twins walk away with 2 vests.

“you’re welcome” yells the lucky-to-be-alive gun dealer.

OW. LOUD COMMERCIAL. Had to turn it up for Skylar’s whispering.

Walt and Gale in full meth cooking gear. Walt finds a mistake in something Gale does. He was obviously looking for a reason to have to get mad at Gale so he starts going off on how “this is chemistry, degrees matter.” Walt is bitching and yelling at him like he’s a child.

Pretty Marquetry Sun Rise. Hank in a suit. “you look nice” Damn, Marie whispers too. They are both whispering about what his testimony will be. She’s saying he should say he was attacked with a pipe. “Why should you be the one that pays for doing the right thing?”
Hank says he didn’t do the right thing. He’s supposed to be better than that. “I’ve been . . . unraveling, you know.”

“I don’t sleep at night. I freeze up. My chest gets so tight I can’t breathe, just panic. Ever since that Salamaca thing, Tuco Salmaca . . . . It changed me. Now I can’t seem to control it. I tried to fight it. But then El Paso. And it just got worse. What I did to Pinkman . . . that’s now who I’m supposed to be. That

snot me. All this, everything that’s happening . . . .The universe is trying to tell me something I’m finally ready to listen. I’m not the man I thought I was. I think I’m done as a cop.”

Walt on the phone with Gus and he’s saying that Gale isn’t working out. He says our “first, best option is Jesse Pinkman. Hello??” He explains the “shorthand” and “experience” they have together that he will never have with Gale.

He says, “Mr Fring. When i was hired, I was told the lab was mine and I know how to run it. Yes, I can , I will, Goodbye.”

He goes to hospital to inform Jesse. Jesse suggest a monkey. “I don’t want a monkey, I want you.” Jesse isn’t interested. He explains it’s more than an assistant, partners. 1.5 million dollars – – each.

“no.”

“I don’t think you heard . . .
“I heard you fine. I said NO.”

“Let me understand this, you’re turning down 1.5 million.

“I’m not turning down the money. I’m turning down YOU. I want nothing to do with you. Ever since I mess you, everything I’ve ever cared about is gone , ruined, turned to shit, gone, ever since I hooked up with the great he,. I’ve never been more alone. I have NOTHING, NO ONE, alright, it’s all gone, GET IT, No? No why. What do you even care? As long as YOU get what you want. cuz you don’t give a shit about me. you said I was no good, I’m nothing. Why would you want me,m huh, You said my math is inferior, right, my cook was garbage, screw you man, screw you” Jesse weeps.

“you’re meth is good, Jesse, as good as mine.” Walt leaves.

Damn, Give Arron Paul an Emmy this season. This young man is a fantastic actor. I think working with Cranston has taught him greatness and he’s leading man material. I see big things in the future of Arron Paul. If I wasn’t typing, I’d probably be crying from that last scene.

Walt pulls up to his home. Phone ringing. “Yeah.” Jesse. “50-50″ Yea, 50-50,”

“okay, Partners.”

“Good. “

Jesse closes phone.

These two men love each other.

Jesse looks at his pain chart and sad face.

Chelsea Handler: 3 books on the NYTimes Best Seller list & a Sex tape?

Chelsea Handler has 3 books on the NYTimes best seller list and Radaronline tried to blackmail her for 1 million dollars. Are these things related? Probably not, but it sure does get me thinking about Chelsea, this situation, blackmail, RadarOnline and the scum that is the tabloid media.

The tape, which was made nearly a decade ago after Chelsea moved to Los Angeles starts out with Chelsea turning on the camera in what appears to be her apartment. During the first part of the tape, Chelsea is fully clothed in her work uniform. She begins by introducing herself by name before going into a stand-up routine before suddenly cutting to Chelsea and her male partner engaging in an explicit sex act.

He indicated that Chelsea would address it on her E! show Wednesday night, and she did. Chelsea, looking very agitated, said she made the tape when she was 23, and added, “I would like to say to RadarOnline.com, thanks for ruining my surprise Christmas gift to my staff, and number two, it was made as a joke. I put it on an audition tape for a comedy club, because I’m a comedienne, and I’ve been showing it at birthday parties for (expletive) years!”

Hmmm? Agitated? well, RadarOnline, how would you feel if somebody tried to blackmail YOU? She handled this ala David Letterman and faced it head-on. She’s not acting embarrassed or humiliated. She’s owning it, after all, it’s HER tape, not RadarOnline’s tape. They are maggots.

RadarOnline.com confirmed that the tape was sent out to Hollywood agents as a demo tape when Chelsea was looking to secure work. If it was an attempt to get noticed, it worked!

“Chelsea gave this demo tape to a bunch of talent agents and managers hoping to book some gigs,” the source continues. “It was taken so long ago and distributed on old VHS tapes, that I’m sure most people just threw them out because her stand-up was so bad and they didn’t realize she would make it big one day. It’s highly possible that many of the recipients of the tape didn’t even watch past the first couple of minutes and missed the sex tape part altogether.”

What’s the matter, RadarOnline (aka National Enquirer)? Not enough cheating men, drug overdoses, suicides, divorces, bikini shots, deadbeat dads, egotistical mothers or exploited children to write about? Oh, because she has a successful TV show, 3 best-sellers and probably wouldn’t date you in High School?

Chelsea Handler wrote 3 books. Chelsea, Chelsea Bang Bang (click here for review) was recently released and has been #3 on the NYTimes best seller list. The other two books,, My Horizontal Life and Are you There Vodka, it’s Me, Chelsea are now re-released in paperback and both of those books are on the paperback best selling list. I know many people don’t like Chelsea and don’t think she’s funny. Personally, I think the “comedians of Chelsea Lately” are funnier than she is but I like her and I “get” her humor and attitude.

“Breaking Bad” Season 3 Episode 6 “Sunset”

Hi “Breaking Bad” fans. I’m sorry I missed recapping last week. I’d just flown in from San Diego and my arms were tired.

——————————————-

Last week Gus tried to persuade Walt to cook again. He took him to an underground lab, actually a super lab. Walt still refused but Gus talked to him, as if Gus were the Devil, and told Walt that “a man will provide . . .” It was a great scene and Gustav sent chills up my spine with his calm evil. I once thought Tuco was a bad-ass but Gustav is so subtle  . . . and so convincing.

———————

Cop driving. Call to check on lady who’s daughter hadn’t heard from her. He pulls up to the “hut” (looks like Patrick Swayze) and knocks on the door. No answer so he’s looking in the windows.He sees mens clothes hanging, doubles (twins!) Knocks again. Hears buzzing and walks out to back-hutt, and he finds the old lady’s bodied covered in bugs.

Pulls out his gun and plays policeman, calls for backup. Yells to the building and one of the twins comes out in an undershirt with a grenade in his hand (I see that, don’t think the cop does( other twin is sneaking up behind cop, he bites grenade, guess it’s an apple. Other twin chops cop with an ax.

Walt looking at artwork and his phone rings. Skylar about the divorce papers she found in the crib. She’s short and bitchy and wants to talk about Walt Jr. She’s such a bitch. Walt is being calm and says Walt Jr saw it coming. She asks about his divorce demands. He wants to pay for things with his drug money, she says no, it will make them accessories. He asks “how do you think I’ve been paying for thing for the past few months.”

Walt buys or rents an apartment.

Back at Taco place. Gus being boss and the twins slide into the restaurant. Gus looks pissed. He’s the Devil, after all.

Jesse with his druggie pals . He’s showing the meth and they are praising him for doing it with H. His friends snort some, he says he could watch, he could cook.  The guy is screaming from the pain of the great meth (whatever that means).

“someone took my brain out and boiled it. Amtrax.” okayyyy.

Jesse wants to do business. He thinks he’s the next big cooker. He’s promising his friends they will sell it “safe and smart” and they won’t get “greedy, like before.” Of course, the druggies will do this.Badger and Skinny. Jesse starts giving orders. Meth heads are seen by Hank. Hank is watching Jesse’s house.

Walt waking to music and making a sandwich, still wearing his wedding ring. Happy music and Walt is getting dressed after making his lunch and putting it in a bag. “Sun, shine on me today” is the song . . . .

Walt and Walt Jr in the car discussing the divorce. Dad is trying to convince his son that he will see him and admits to feeling guilty. Walt Jr. somehow thinks he should have had a say in his parents marriage and that’s why he’s pissed. Ok.

Gus with the twins. in the food place. Man is pissed off. Worker asks if they should call the police but Gus says they aren’t doing anything wrong. Being creepy isn’t a crime.

Walt somewhere industrial. Can’t describe. He’s going down to the superlab. Someone greets him. “Mr. White, I presume?” Lab assistant ready to show his resume and credentials. He also has this big contraption that makes “something” and he starts telling Walt about his recipe. This guy is a genius chemist like Walt and they start talking about the weights and measures of certain components. Walt is impressed. It is the Best Coffee he’s ever tasted! Ha. We were all fooled.

Happy jazz Piano music (Charlie Brown-ish) and two men in yellow working side by side making stacks and stacks and pounds and pounds of the devil’s drug. More chemistry talk. Walt just had a wonderful time and he and the assistant start opening up to each other.

They agree on the “magic” of the chemistry and the assistant recites a long poem and declares himself a nerd.

Hank watching Jesse’s place and it looks like he hasn’t been out of his car in days. Marie calls, “are you EVER coming home?”  He’s waiting for the Pinkman dude to lead him to a lab. Marie suggests that Hank ask Walt!

“hey buddy hey, how ya doin. Hate to bother ya, at a dead end.  . . . gotta know, I’d never put you on the spot or make you feel uncomfortable . . . . Jesse Pinkman dealt you weed . . . I so do not care about that. as .  . . .Did Pinkman ever have an RV??:

Walt leans forward. “Why?”

Hank explains that he thinks it was used as a rolling-lab. Walt is silent. Commercial.

Jesse answers Walt’s call. Walt hangs up. Walt calls Saul and starts explaining the DEA problem. Walt is worried because it has his fingerprints all over it. Saul wants Walt to “get to it before the feds do.” It’s RV SIZE. I’m not David Copperfield.

“Did you not plan for this contingency. Starship Enterprise had a self destruct button, just saying.”

Badger talking crap while someone is working on an RV. Walt drives up and is pissed off. Walt is trying to explain that the DEA is looking for the RV and that they need to destroy it. Walt is asking Badger’s cousin, the lot owner, for help. He’ knows a guy . . .

“What about Jesse?”

“What about him.”

Badger calls Jesse. Jesse runs out of the house and Hank is following. Who’s dumber, Badger, Jesse or Walt for not telling Jesse he’s being watched.

Lady at Taco Place asks the twins if they are leaving. They just stare into space. Another woman tries and Gus says is, “it’s okay.” They speak in Spanish. The twins were on the same side of the booth and they didn’t buy food. Nothing suspicious at all.

Walt pays a guy to destroy the RV. EVERYBODY knows this character actor but, of course, I don’t know his name, just recognize his voice. Walt is checking out the RV for, whatever, and finds a pack of Funyuns and gets emotional.  He’s looking around the place as if it’s home.

Jesse busts in the RV and starts yelling that it’s his RV too and he should have a say in what they do with it. He brought Hank. Walt is freaking  out like a rat in a box. “You led him right to us.” Commercial.

Hank gets out of his vehicle and slowly looks at the RV. He rattles a window. Jesse and Walt are like caged animals. My heart is pounding. Hank tries the door, windows. Yells that Jesse should come out, not resist arrest. Hank starts breaking into the RV with a tire iron. Lot owner says “gotta warrant.” and tells Hank he needs a warrant. Lot guy is talking about “probable cause” and saying that it is his private residence. Claims Hank is “fishing” and Hank shows the bullet holes.

Walt whispers to Jesse,Jesse yells what he says. Cyrano de breaking bad.

:”This is my own private domicile, I will not be harassed . . . . BITCH”

Hank laughs and says he’ll get the warrant. Tough guy calls in for a warrant.

Walt  and Jesse still in the RV Jesse wants to “escape” and is starting to panic. “they will shoot me in the head.” He’s begging Walt (daddy) to tell him what to do. Walt calls someone and says, “We need your help”

Hank still by the RV waiting for backup. A woman calls and claims that Marie has been in an accident and Hank drives away. It was Saul’s secretary. “You have to start paying me more.”

Hank drives off. Jesse and Walt get out of the RV. Hank is running into the hospital yelling at the nurses, going door to door, and his phone rings, it’s Marie, “I’m just checking in, should I cook dinner.” . . . .

Hank realizes he’s been punk’d.

Nice Spanish music while the RV is being crushed, destroyed, demolished, and made unrecognizable. Walt and Jesse watch.

Gus in the middle of no where.

This guy scares the hell out of me.

He meets with the twins and they still want to kill Walt. He tells them that Walt didn’t kill Tuco, the DEA agent did. Twin says that they are not allowed to kill DEA agent. Gustav gives them permission. “May his death satisfy you.”

“Breaking Bad” Season 3 Episode 3 “I.F.T.”

This is a flashback: At a bar in burro Asshole Mexico, we see Turtle aka Tortuga, played by the great actor, Danny Trejo, Guy brings him to the back room to show him a tortoise.

The cousins come in and chop off turtles head. This was last season and a few months ago in TV time. The cousins were brutal. This scene was barbaric and so are the cousins. When they were done (this we know from last season) they took the head and put it on a bomb-rigged tortoise body. It walked in the desert and all Hank’s co-workers were blown to pieces. He was the only one to survive and this is what’s causing his PTSD.

Jesse making a phone call from his new home. Sitting on the floor. No furniture. Knocking on the door and it’s Saul the lawyer. “Happy housewarming, kid” Saul is checking on Jesse and asking him to convince Walter, the master chef to do his thing. “Sure, man, whatever.” Saul says he’ll make it worth it for Jesse if he gets Walt cooking again. Jesse is straight, heart-broken, sad. Aaron Paul is a great actor. With no words you can see his emotions.

He starts making a call and you think he’s calling Walt but it’s Jane’s cell. He listens to her message.

Hank on stake-out gets a call and is saying “thank you.” He’s going back to the El Paso office and he’s very happy..

Walter getting the pizza off the roof. Bald bad guy is saying “he doesn’t realize how close he came. Saul doesn’t need to know. Mums the word.”

Skylar in car singing Old McDonald with baby in the car. She sees Walt’s car and says “son of a bitch.” She’s calling him and yelling at him for being in the house. ”
I’m back.” No you’re not. “yes, it’s my house.” She’s saying “NO. I’m not coming in until you GET OUT.” “Suit yourself.”

“WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

She yells. He stays very calm. He doesn’t want a divorce. She’s going to call the police and tell them, everything. “I mean it Walt.” —  “there’s the phone.”

Baby starts fussing.

She calls the Albuquerque police. She reports domestic issue. He just sits there. He’s not leaving. “do what you have to do Skyler, this family is everything to me, without it, I have nothing to lose”

“Fine.” “Yes, my name is Skyler White and my soon to be ex broke into my house and  I need an officer to come and remove him.” She give address and says, “They’re coming.” Walter doesn’t budge.

Walt Jr. comes home and is thrilled to see his dad. “Are you home, for good?” Skyler sends Walt Jr to his room but he wants to talk to his dad. They eat grilled-cheese sandwiches together and the doorbell rings. It’s the Police to take daddy away.

Walt Jr. yells at his mother. Walt Sr. won’t leave and she explains this to the cops. Cops are not buying Skyler’s whining about Walt trespassing. Baby fussing and Walt picks her up, “I got it, honey.”

They both are talking to the cops and Slyler realizes that the cops won’t do a thing. They need her to say he hit her, broke a law, do some kind of “wrong doing” and they could get him out of the house. Walt Jr. starts whining about how great his dad is and how mom won’t say what he “did” that is so bad.

“Sorry Maam. No legal basis for us to remove your husband from the house.”

“Best of luck to you folks.” buh bye.

Walt Jr. starts yelling. “WHY YOU GOTTA DO THIS TO DAD” he goes in his room and slams the door.

Skyler takes baby from Walt and says “welcome home” with disdain and hatred.

=================

The cousins with an old lady in red. She looks scared.

Chicken farm. Cousins drive up, pointy skull boots, shiny suits, slow walking.. They wheel out Tio and they meet some guy in a suit. All start speaking Spanish.

Taco guy is inside opening a veggie tray. Taco guy is the main guy and he welcomes the men. and apologizes for the stairs not being wheel char accessible.

Guy with suit speaking about needing revenge for Tuco’s death. Taco guy says that he is doing business with Walter and needs him alive. Suit man takes Taco man outside and says the cousins aren’t as patient so he needs to finish up his business soon/

==============

Jesse calls Jane’s cell again and again as the sun goes down. Sad.

Walter sleeping, Skyler smoking and hides it from the baby.  Walk knocks on the door and asks if she needs help. She locks the door and won’t let him in to use the bathroom. He pees in the kitchen sink.

Skyler speaking to a lawyer and is talking about Walter moving back into the house. Skyler tells the lawyer about Walter making Meth.  Lawyer wants Skyler to turn him in but Skyler doesn’t want Walt Jr. to know that his father is a criminal. For a split second I almost liked her.

In a bar Hank buys some guy nachos. They are in a sleazy scary bar and his friend says, “let’s go to Chilis or outback” – – -The do some weird hand gestures. What was that about??

Hank goes to the bathroom and is having a PTSD attack (Turtles head on the tortoise bomb). Hank seems to want to get in fights or something. His friend says others are  investigating these dudes and they need to leave them alone. Again, I’m confused.

Hank goes back in bar to use the bathroom but goes up to a table and tells two or three big guys to stand up. HE starts fighting with all of them.

He’s kicking ass. Hank against a few huge guys and Hank is banging heads and finally says “DEA, Don’t move.” Hank is breaking baaaaaaad.

Jesse. Calling Jane’s cell again. Poor guy. Love sick. She’s dead. He actually hangs up. and calls Walt. Phone is disconnected. Jesse is hitting a bottom and he needs Walt for cooking AND friendship.

Jesse goes into the lab and even puts a leather apron over his hoodie. Puts on the gas mask. He’s going to try to do this by himself.

Skyler with baby. Walt wants to talk.

Hank in bathroom cleaning blood off his hands. ASAC wants to see him. They are making up a scenario to cover for Hank, who left his gun on the seat before he went back in to arrest the drug dealers.

Walt says he “did it for us” and he has a bag of cash in the middle of the floor. Says it’s enough for both kids to go to college, health insurance, physical therapy, groceries, gas, birthdays and graduation parties . . . “

He continues. “This money, I didn’t steal it, it doesn’t belong to anybody else. I earned it. The things I’ve done to earn it, the, things I’ve had to do, I’ve got to live with them.  …..

Skyler at work and lover boy comes in while she’s making copies. He’s making coffee and she approaches him from the back, taps his arm and he turns around and they kiss. Then she backs off, someone walks in. He gets her a cup of coffee.  He’s got a boner.

She asks if his kids are home. They go to his house so she can . . . break bad . . . I guess. Parked in front of his house she starts “thinking” (don’t do that, you’ll NEVER get laid)”

Skyler comes home and Walt Jr has a friend over while Walt is cooking dinner. Don’t know if Sky did “it” or not. Kids watching “TV and Walt is cutting veggies. He’s wearing an apron. Hard not to compare it to Jesse’s leather apron.

Walt is trying to be domestic, sweet, patient. “Honesty is good. Don’t ya think?”

She looks at him and says, “I fucked Ted.”

“Boys. Dinner.”
