So it’s the continuation Jesse Pinkman’s story; I can live with that, as long as the high quality that the series had remains the same.


#3

I’m guessing there will be substantial flashback scenes with W.W. and Jesse throughout


#4

It only makes sense.

I wonder if current-day Saul, aka Gene, the Cinnabon manager, will make an appearance.


#5

Was he this cranky with the Better Call Saul spinoff? Because that was excellent. There’s still plenty of room in that universe.


#6

Hollywood recycling ideas, again.


#7

I could enjoy many hours of the Jessie Pinkman show. But don’t call it Breaking Bad. Remember the X-Files after David Duchovny quit? Don’t do that.


#8

I’d really like to know more of the Gustavo Fring origin story


#9

Pretty much all storytelling is based on recycled ideas. It’s the quality of the execution that matters.


#10

How is continuing a story recycling ideas? And I guess we should have stopped telling stories around our camp fires thousands of years ago, since we “keep recycling stories.”

Breaking Bad 2: Electric Booga’ludes.

And so far, Gilligan has done really well with his execution when it comes to the BrBa universe.

Although I must say, I do have some reservations that if he doesn’t end it properly, this project could end up just being torture porn.

Though he started out as a skeevy douchebag dealer, Jesse still didn’t deserve all the horrible abuse and persecution that he constantly suffered throughout the original series; continuing his story from the point of his escape to where he is now as severely damaged survivor without becoming exploitative is going to be a tricky feat… but if anyone is up to the task, it’s Vince Gilligan.

I’m still holding out for a spin-off that answers the question “did Huell ever leave that hotel room?”


#14

Where is “Duke City” New Mexico? Can’t find it on a map.


#15

It’s about 10 miles north of the Zafiro Añejo tequila distillery. Take the first exit after you pass Pollos Hermanos.


#16

I don’t care what anybody says, THAT was funny!


#17

What the studio is doing is banking on the Breaking Bad name.


#18

Or maybe Vince Gilligan has more story to tell from Breaking Bad…? Just a thought.


#19

Thank you. I’ll be here all day. Don’t forget to tip the waitstaff.
