Television. Yep, I watch it. My favorite shows currently are “Breaking Bad”, “Top Shot”, and “Sons of Anarchy”….and well, I do love Investigation Discovery…the whole channel.
But anyway, I found myself catching up on AMC’s “Breaking Bad” today, which really is a phenomenal show. Walter White, Chem Teacher with Cancer goes criminal? Yep, good stuff. Giancarlo Espisito (or however ya spell it) has been an excellent addition to the cast- I mean, there is one slick, smart dude who knows how to carry a grudge and patiently wait for revenge, but as the show has gone on, I have come to the conclusion that Walt – who we feel bad for or like early on- is a selfish fuckin’ asshole, his wife ain’t much better, and Jesse Pinkman, who initially comes off as an obnoxious moron…RULES. Which, speaking of Jesse Pinkman…
On the recommendation of some of my friends, I watched that show “Weeds” off of Netflix, which is a Shotime effort, and the story centers around House Mom Nancy Botwin who goes into the pot selling (then growing) business after her husband dies young and unexpectedly. It was one of those ones I had to force myself through for really about an entire season before I got into it or even liked it at all, and stopped watching it as soon as she ended up preggers (several seasons later) by the Mexican Drug lord…by then, even my suspension of disbelief was shot…and frankly, unlike “Breaking Bad” where there are some non-assholes in the character line up…in “Weeds” everyone is a prick. They are these annoying cookie cutter bullshit Cali types and just…ugh. Hell, I wanted bad shit to happen to all the characters…where as with Jesse- – I am rooting for him- even if he thinks he is a bad guy.
So, I have decided, politically un-correct or sexist or whatever the hell else ever, I want AMC and Shotime to do a cross over, where Jesse Pinkman traverses over to “Weeds”-land and…kicks the snot out of Nancy Botwin…is that so wrong?
