SPOILER ALERT: Why Your Pop Culture Has A Time Limit

2014-02-12-its_all_geek_to_me.png Outside of the fact that every celebrated psycho-thriller of the past couple of decades had the same plot twist, there's a bigger problem at play here. There are so many ways to describe something you like, and the central plot twist should never be your opening statement. You're trying to express yourself (that's good!), but you're spoiling the hell out of whatever you describe (that's bad).

How I Cut the Chord and Learned to Wait for TV

Basically the cord cutting decision comes down to how much you value brand new content or the social component of watching and discussing that new content with friends. The last episode of Breaking Bad was admittedly the big media event of last year. I'm patient. I'll keep the cash and wait.

Will a Canadian TV Series Ever Be One of the Greats?

A few weeks ago, American commentator Mike Gallay at Huffingpost listed the five greatest series in TV history as Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Wire, The Sopranos, and Twin Peaks. So, um, the greatest shows ever are largely about men, mainly crime dramas, and mostly aired in the last decade?

Faking Bad: Confessions of a Pathological Television Liar

2013-10-11-fakingbad.jpgWe get aggressively upset by people who haven't seen/heard/read the things we have. At a certain point, I got tired of bringing group conversations to a halt because I had only seen the first season of Mad Men. The lies started small.

I Really Miss Walter White and His 2004 Pontiac Aztek

Last Sunday, I spent Jesus's apparent day -- for the first time in nine weeks -- without Breaking Bad. Without Walter White or any of his tics, tendencies, or tacky style. Unlike most who watched Bad, I liked Walter White all the way. I liked him at the beginning, I liked him at the end, and I liked him at his worst.

Hate to Break it To You Walt - It's Pretty Bad in Canada Too

Healthcare in Canada is anything but free. The average Canadian family of two parents with two children (similar to Walt's family in the drama) pays approximately $11,320 in taxes for hospital and physician care through the country's tax system, in addition to the cost of private insurance for things like dental care and outpatient prescription drugs.

Why Are TV Shows Ostensibly Set in Canada Viewed as Unmarketable?

D.K. Latta

If you think about many of your favourite American series, you'll realize how much the sense of place seeps into the story (U.S. series often put a place name in the opening credits montage). From Breaking Bad's premise arising out of the American health care system to True Blood with its southern drawls and back woods voodoo.

What better place to say goodbye to one of the best TV shows in recent memory than in the Hollywood Forever Cinespia cemetery in Los Angeles? (Well, OK, I concede it may have been a better fit in the deserts of New Mexico, but realistically that couldn't have worked.)

American Pop Culture Highlights the American Perspective

D.K. Latta

Breaking Bad is about Walter White, an average man who turns to crime when faced with insurmountable medical bills (to put it lightly). I'm guessing no character in Breaking Bad ever commented: "Gee, Walt, you ever think how if you'd been born in Canada, or Europe, your life might've been different?"
