So Breaking Bad, it's good [Jul. 16th, 2012|11:35 pm]

I can't remember the last time I wrote a preview of some popular entertainment. I'm tempted to say "never", but that's a hell of a long time.

That said, I guess I'm kind of offering a preview of the 5th season of Breaking Bad, by way of a very (for me: circa 800 words) brief review of its first four.

I feel kind of dirty for so looking forward to last night's episode (no, I've not yet watched it), but looking forward to it I am. Breaking Bad is an awesome guilty pleasure.

The Wire meets Wile E. Coyote (not much in the way of spoilers.

Who says it's the beautiful game?

On the upside, Team 7 is getting better and better. We won the first game of tonight's double-header, 3 to 2. (Nevermind what happened in the second game, smart-ass; the point of recreational soccer is to have fun. And anyway, the second game doesn't count against us in the standings.

Gee dude, how d'you get those bruises? Can't recall ever receiving any of those colours even after the toughest rugby clash in the neighbourhood! :S

Dunno, really

Best bet is my shoes don't fit exactly right. Truth to tell, they mostly showed up after the first game, before I added a pair of insoles.

I think I'm going to lose the nail on the right, but what the hell ...

Re: Dunno, really

Tell me about it. I'm suddenly reminded of a drunken evening not all that many years ago when a friend and I decided to stop off at the local bastketball court after pounding back more than a few pints.

I don't know why — possibly I was wearing sandles — but I decided to play a little one-on-one shoeless.

As you can imagine, it wasn't long at all before all the blood convinced me it was a Bad Idea, even in my cups as I was.

At least you didn't play ice-basket barefoot!

I watched that show when it first came out and then sort of stopped, and I didn't realize it was still on. Suddenly all the cool kids are watching it, I'll have to look it up again.
