Breaking Bad – Season 4 Recap – Crawl Space

September 28, 2011 Leave a comment

This season of Breaking Bad has done what it does best, deliver the drama in a slow and intense way.  This whole season the tension has been building and last Sunday’s episode, Crawl Space delivered more drama than most shows do all season. 

Gus continues to show you how much of a heartless person he can be.  Yet, not just heartless but also clever.  The man has a plan A-Z for all occasions.  With the cartel in ruins, Gus and Mike dying, jesse drives them to a makeshift hospital Gus has prepared.  Once at the location, the doctors are able to save and revive Gus.  Jesse finds out just how prepared Gus is as he see’s a fridge full of everyone’s blood for transfusions.  The doctor starts to rattle off Jesse’s blood type, age, allergies and everything else.  Gus and Jesse walk out and Gus says that Jesse can take over the lab.  Jesse says that he wont cook if Walt is killed.  That he should be fired instead. 

With Gus revived they make there way back home.  Walter is panicked about his brother in law and not knowing what’s going on in Mexico.  Walter is staking out the chicken farm with his brother in law Hank.  Hank tells him he’s heard about a bloodbath in Mexico but doesn’t have much information.  Hank then takes Walt on a little detour.  He’s going to check out the laundromat where he has been cooking.

Walt gets nervous and crashes his car on purpose to avoid staking the place out.  Later on the episode we see Walt smuggled into the laundromat in dirty clothes.  When Walt gets to the lab he can tell that the lab has been in use.  That someone has been cooking while he recuperated from his car accident.  He knows that it has to be Jesse.

Walt goes to Jesse’s house and there we see him playing video games.  Walt pleads with Jesse, telling him that he needs his help. That Gus is training Jesse to replace him and there going to kill him.  Jesse responds in anger to Walt reminding him that the last time he asked Walt for help that Walt said he hoped Jesse ended up in a barrel in Mexico.  Walt goes to leave and is met by Gus’s body gaurds who taze him until he is unconscious. 

Walt is now hooded and bonded and in the middle of the desert.  Gus takes off Walt’s hood and tells him he is fired.  Walt laughs, saying he knows Jesse wont cook for him if he’s killed.  That this proves his point that no matter what Gus has done that Jesse is still loyal to him.  Gus says that its true, but that doesn’t mean anything about what he will do to Walt’s brother in law.  Gus has a hit out on Hank.  He also says if he is warned in any way shape or form that he will kill Walt’s wife, son and daughter.  Walt can see just how serious Gus is.  After Gus leaves Walt begins a mad dash and the most intense closing scenes ever starts.

Walt goes to Saul, asking for the number of the guy to make him and his family disappear.  Saul gives him the number and tells him he needs a large amount of money.  Walter pleads with Saul to warn the DEA about a hit on Hank and Saul reluctantly agrees.  Walt heads home and goes to the crawl space.  He starts opening the money bags to see he doesn’t have enough.  Skylar comes in and Walt asks where the money is.  She tells him what she did with the money.  Walt lays down and starts screaming and crying uncontrollably.  His cries give way to laughter and the look on Skylars face is amazingly haunting.  The phone rings and its Marie. She is crying on the answering machine saying its happening again.  The Cartel has put a hit on Hank.  As Skylar answers the phone you hear Walt laughing as the camera pans up from him.  In his crawl space, as if a premonition as to what will now happen to Walt.

Food in Japan – The good stuff!

January 3, 2011 1 comment

Ah yeah, it was all about the food!  And we saw some interesting food and ate some great food in Japan.  First Meal in Restaruant
  The first meal we had in Japan was at a restaurant.  I forgot the name of the dish but it was very tasty!  It was pork with some veggies, rice, and miso soup.  I’m probably spelling "miso" wrong.  We arrived for lunch and had to take off our shoes.  We placed them in lockers and proceeded to our seats which were on the floor.  The restaurant was very cool and the food was delicious.  Of course, walking around town and shopping we also noticed a lot of unique food items.

I spent a lot of my time in Japan trying to find some wierd food items I had heard about.  One such item was the kit kat candy bar. 
Cheese Kit Kat?I had heard that they have upwards of 50 different flavors of KitKat in Japan.  It was confirmed to me by our hosts that there are indeed a large variety and different kinds of them floating around depending on the season and holiday.  The second night there I found my first such case.  Petit Cheese KitKat!  It was actually white chocolate covering some cheese…..and I bought it….and I ate it, and it was DELICIOUS!  I continued to hunt but was really hard to find other flavors.  I saw the cheese one a few more times and finally encountered some other flavors.

Orange and StrawberryLater that week I found one such store that had two other unique flavors of KitKat!  Orange and strawberry KitKats!  I bought them on the spot and of course devoured them!  Once again, they were delicious!  I favored the orange one overall and regretted not getting another batch. 

I was considering buying some to take back home to America but I know I would of just ate them anyways so I was saving myself from myself and figured the pictures would have to do.  I also wondered why the hell is KitKat being so stingy here?  Why can’t we get orange or strawberry KitKats!?

What will follow are a few shots now of other unique candy’s I saw and found:

Oreo Coffee!!

Crunk's not dead!

Okay so now a brief explanation….first I have no idea how to explain the cream collon.  I didn’t buy it or try it but not because of the name.  Or maybe it was because of the name….

The oreo coffee thing I did buy and try and I enjoyed it.  Who doesnt love oreo’s?  It was pretty much like the starbucks Via thing and tasted delicious.  Under that was strawberry crunch…..again why doesn’t Crunch have this in America?  Again it was delicious!!!! And last but not least was Crunky Kids!  I thought Crunk was dead…apparently I was wrong.

This isent even close to all the food pictures I got but I figure I could cover ramen in its own article.  But I will have to post two more pictures here.

Pepsi???Apparently in Japan depending on the holiday, Pepsi will release a unique flavor drink.  Since it was Christmas and New Years coming up we got to taste Pepsi – Mont Blanc!

Apparently this is similar to a roasted chestnut.  It tasted however similar to a caffienated coffee drink.  It was definately unique and I will admit I bought it again later on and took one home to give to a gift to a good friend.  Pepsi as a gift?  Yes, he has the pepsi logo tattooed on him.  So yes, it was an awesome gift for him.  Oh, side note, I also found Pepsi Twist in Japan!  It’s still alive down there!

The vending machine is not all that interesting till you take a closer look at them.  The blue under the items in question represent cold drinks, while the red represented warm drinks.  Also, some of those in the red are not actually drinks but rather soup.  I have bought corn chowder, potato soup, and tomato soup from vending machines while I also bought a cold coke or pepsi from the same vending machine. 

Okay, thats going to do it for this article I think.  I’ll still be posting a few articles in the next few days to talk about some of the sights and sounds and buildings in Japan. 

Hope you all enjoyed it!!
