The Internet Kitchen: Breaking Bad

by Nick

I have a retraction I would like to make. Many years ago I stated, in public, that I thought The Wire was the best TV drama of all time and would never be beat by any TV Drama. It was just perfect.

I maintain that it still top two, but I really think Breaking Bad might be better. I first starting watching Breaking Bad last year when I was cooped up on the couch recovering from knee surgery. While it starts slower than The Wire, it rapidly accelerates and by season two I was completely sucked in.

I’m so sucked in, in fact, that while I watched all the older seasons on Netflix, I had to buy the most recent two seasons because I couldn’t wait to watch them and we don’t have cable.

There are only two episodes left in the series and I have to mentally prepare before I watch an episode now. It’s some crazy TV.

In short, if you are in the market for a new TV drama, and you don’t mind a fair amount of drugs and violence, this show is off the charts.

The Links

Vegetarian Caesar Salad – Traditional caesar salad must have anchovies in it. I actually use a lot of anchovies when I make my version. To be honest, I never really even considered a veggie version, but it’s probably a good idea to have on hand. (@ Perfect Pantry)

Fresh Corn Pudding – It’s almost past corn season, but if you can still get some good sweet corn then this dish looks perfect for a early fall dish. (@ Food Loves Writing)

Blueberry Pierogi - I’ve never tried to make pierogi and have only eaten them a few times. I usually see savory versions but these look really nice as a sweet alternative. (@ Ruhlman)

Simply Recipes Photography – I always like to see how some of my favorite food blogs take their photos. I particularly like Elise’s photos because they aren’t over-stylized and really focus on the food. Here’s some tips from her. (@ Simply Recipes)

  1. Breaking Bad gets my heart racing every episode. And wasn’t this past episode crazy!?!?

    Now I have to check out The Wire….

  2. I have to agree with you there, this is the only TV drama I have watched from front to back never missing an episode.

  3. I’m with you on Breaking Bad. This season is testing my emotional limits to the max. I feel so upset, sad, and anxious after each episode, but yet can’t wait for the next one at the same time. I’ll be relieved when it’s all over, but sad at the same time.

  4. I am also a fan of breaking bad and walking dead. Both shows pump me up and get me anxious. They are both written so well. We have a bar here in Tampa that has Walking Dead nights and they play the show on a huge outside screen and everyone sits outside and watches it together. So cool. I don’t have cable, so Netflix has been a blessing and I am totally hooked me on these shows. Love being able to watch all the shows without any commercials!!
