Walking Dead on Red Bull: 3-4 “Killer Within”

Red Bulls imbibed:  1 Let’s walk. Firstly, since I missed last week’s episode, here are my thoughts on 3-3. Welcome to Woodbury! We met Merle again. also known as the poor man’s Bruce Campbell. We met the Governor.  I found a recipe for him on Allrecipes.com Governor Recipe Ingredients: Two tablespoons of Bill Compton one tablespoon of Stellan Skarsgard a small dash of Paxton Instructions: mix until delightful. We saw the Governor kill a bunch of soliders. What I learned about the Governor: he’s delightful loves old timey expressions like,  “Survival in the wild is tough sleddin'” Refuses...

No Walking Dead on Red Bull: 3-3 “Walk with ...

Sorry everyone, no Walking Dead on Red Bull this week. At least you know who to blame.  That’s right:

Walking Dead on Red Bull: 3-2 “Sick”

Red Bulls imbibed:  1 And a reminder on my current kill list. These are the characters who deserve painful deaths: Lori Carl Andrea Glenn T-Bone Let’s walk. We resume right as the prisoners we met at the last episode’s conclusion stare on in wonder at the one-legged God known as Hersheles’ leg. One of the prisoners looks at the group and with genuine confusion says, “You don’t look like the rescue team!” Oh, really?  Firstly, what does a rescue team look like? don’t they wear fun coordinated “rescue team” outfits? Also, why would anyone send a rescue team to a prison taken over my...

Walking Dead on Red Bull: 3-1 “Seed”

Red Bulls imbibed: 1 And a reminder on my current kill list. These are the characters who deserve painful deaths: Lori Carl Andrea Glenn T-Bone Let’s walk. We start with an educational vignette about how dumb all of the Walking Dead characters are i.e.  it’s a...

Breaking Bad Roundtable 5.8 Gliding Over All

Like last week, I don’t know where else to start but the end. What are your initial thoughts? How believable was Hank’s discovery? Dave: I kept waiting for something big to happen at the end, because you knew they had to go out with a bang. Hank discovering that Walt is...

Breaking Bad Roundtable 5.7 Say My Name

I don’t know where else to start but the end. What are your initial thoughts? Dave: I wasn’t crazy with the way they lead up to Mike’s death. I wouldn’t say I was all that shocked either. Mike needed to die to advance the story and between last week and this...

Breaking Bad Roundtable 5.6: Buyout

There was A LOT going on this episode. What did you guys think of the pacing? Dave: There was too much going on and really I could have seen this being two or three episodes. While I thought the beginning was great, the rest of the episode just seemed like it was in a big damn hurry....

Breaking Bad Roundtable 5.5: Dead Freight

Holy Shit, that just happened. Dave: Yep, we officially had our first holy shit moment of the season. Walt and Jesse have gone to great lengths in the past to protect “innocents” so it’s going to be very interesting to see how this cold blooded child murder affects...

Breaking Bad Roundtable 5.4: Fifty-One

It finally happened, we got a Skyler episode. How do you see the conflict between Walt and Skyler playing out? Dave: For a second there I thought she might have just drowned in that pool. I think suicide is a real option at this point, although Walt pretty much pointed out to her...

Breaking Bad Roundtable 5.3: Hazard Pay

The cold open this episode wasn’t as striking as the previous episodes. What are your thoughts on this. Dave: I didn’t mind that aspect of it. It was good to see Mike doing some of his dirty work and really set up Mike’s motivations during the big money counting...

The Best Music of Breaking Bad

[Welcome to Breaking Bad Week on StewOver! All this week, to get ready for the premiere of the fifth and final season (Sunday, July 15th, on AMC), we’ll be bringing you articles relating to the show. Today, music from Breaking Bad.] Not only is Breaking Bad the best show on television, but it also features some of the best music. The creators of the show have a knack for picking the perfect song for the moment. From the pilot to the final episode of season 4, the music has been spot on every time. Below are four of my favorite songs from the series so far. Beware of spoilers. Rodrigo y Gabriela- “Tamacun” You’ve read...

The Killing 2-13: What I Know

The Killer: Terry (Rosie’s Aunt), with a big assist from Jamie Wright. Let’s get down to business. As promised they let us know EXACTLY what happened on the night of Rosie’s murder. The Chief, Ames, and Jamie have the meeting on the 10th floor of the casino. The...

The Killing 2-12: Donnie or Marie

So apparently The Killing is giving us a 2-part finale, so no, we still don’t know who killed Rosie. Next week. Next week AMC tells us we’ll know. The entire episode focused on Linden and Holder’s search to find out who exactly was on the 10th floor of the casino...

The Killing 2-11: Bulldog

If you thought I was distracted by Mad Men last week…. Suicide dominated AMC’s Sunday night lineup and while Richmond survived his attempt, the fact that he tried at all might just kill his political career. At the 11th Hour, the Mayor threatens to out Richmond for where...

The Killing 2-10: 72 Hours

If my recap today is not very good I apologize. I’m just having trouble adjusting to a world where Peggy Olsen and Don Draper don’t work together… But that’s the wrong AMC show. On this week’s episode of The Killing, the show focused on less characters...

The Killing 2-9: Sayonara, Hiawatha

[Editor’s note: I got the name of last week’s episode wrong, it was actually called Off the Reservation. This week is Sayonara, Hiawatha. Goman.] After a couple of decent episodes, we were due up for crappy normal episode of The Killing and unfortunately that’s what...

The Killing 2-8: Off the Reservation

Actual suspense? Touching parent-son moments? Am I watching a real drama? I actually enjoyed this episode more than any other of The Killing since Season One. A major reason for this is that there are only four episodes left which allows for many more possibilities with the plot....

The Killing 2-7: Keylela

This week The Killing barely made a passing reference to our lead suspect from last week, Rosie’s ex-boyfriend’s father/Rosie’s aunt’s boyfriend, Michael Ames. Instead we spend most of the episode at the Indian casino where Linden and Holder attempt to try to...

The Killing 2-6: Openings

First thing’s first. Last week, we were left with a cliffhanger: Is Stan Larsen Rosie’s real dad? The answer? No, he isn’t her biological father, but he raised her from birth and for all intents and purposes, he’s her dad. However, Stan and Mitch never told...

The Killing 2-5: Ghosts of the Past

Welcome back to Stew Over’s most depressing running column. It’s Day 18 in The Killing, and just remember that for later in the recap. This week, the show eliminated our lead suspect in record time only taking approximately 30 minutes to turn Gifts from the lead suspect...
