HAWPCast: Breaking Bad


This HAWPCast is literally all about Breaking Bad, and I cannot emphasize HOW MANY SPOILERS THERE ARE. If you ever plan on watching Breaking Bad, do notttttt listen to this podcast. Also, because Justin hasn’t seen all of BB, we traded him out for Grant and Aaron Linde. Aaron Linde is a good friend of all of ours, worked at Destructoid with Anthony back in the day, and worked on the most recent Gears of War. He’s a good dude.

We speak about all of Breaking Bad through the fourth season, so unless you’ve completed the series to this point, don’t listen unless you want all the spoilarzzz.

    Real happy to see an entire HAWPcast about this!

    Real gutted I can’t listen to it.

    The last two HAWPcasts will not load on that channel link.

    I’ve tried everything, but they just continue to say “loading”, any tips?

    If not, I’ll assume what you said was amazing, and I totally agreed!

      I’m also having loading issues for the site but using the rss feed worked fine. http://www.mevio.com/feeds/thehawpcast.xml

        Haha, success, thank you!

        Yes, I too agree that the majority of people I discover to be fans of both Breaking Bad, and Dexter are the most unexpected of folk!

        I was surprised to learn from you that Season 2 had been winged from the get go. Personally, I didn’t notice. In fact, I thought that may have been the case for Season 4, which I hated! It puttered along at a snail’s pace for the first eight episodes. I had hoped it would be the last series due to the fact it feels as though they’re clutching at straws – there’s nothing more that we can learn about these people now wouldn’t you agree?

        Watching Walt go out in a hail of bullets attempting to defeat his arch nemesis and failing would’ve been a fitting tribute to the blunderess mess that is the man himself, but they gave him the victory, and it wasn’t particularly a spectacular one – everything happened at a distance and there was no interaction or closure between Walt & Gus (who is most definitely my favourite character – I could’ve watched an entire season about him, pushing the main characters into the back ground).

        I’ve heard rumours that they’ve commissioned a fifth series with more episodes than in any previous season :s Honestly, I don’t see where they can go with it, anyone else? Other than Walt trying to cover up his mistakes from his brother-in-law, avoiding prison, or facing the consequences of his actions and seeing how it destroys his family, but who wants to sit through either one of those uneventful scenarios…

    Is anything else discussed besides Breaking Bad?

    • Ash says:

      There is a very brief anecdote about how Grant and Aaron Linde hate each other, but other than that, no.

  4. Joe says:

    About how far into Breaking Bad did you guys talk about? I’m working my way through it right now and I’m about 3/4ths of the way through Season 2.

    • Ashly says:

      We talk about the entire series thus far, so don’t listen to it until after you’ve finished.

  5. ablanketofscones says:

    Welp, time to go torrentivo the rest of Season 4.

  6. Ryan Dawson says:

    I’m actually super surprised that you guys believe that they have respect for the characters. I completely felt like, as the series progressed, they sometimes made characters act significantly different from who they were at that moment just for the purpose of progressing the plot.

  7. Cena says:

    you guys

    i love you guys

    you talk about the best things


  8. Hacker Alias says:

    Lost is complete bullshit, but you ARE remembering the baby thing wrong. The entire group is pissed at Charlie for pretty much the entire season after that, and the only one that even talks to him for a few episodes is the priest.

  9. You guys were talking about Orcs must Die a while back. Have you tried out Dungeon Defenders yet? It is like OMD, but has 4 player Co-Op and is ace

  10. Loafof says:

    This was fun, but by gawd, you guys make so many mistakes and miss so many things! I don’t remember all of the ones you made at the begining but Cranston won 3 emmys and Jonathan Banks’ biggest claim to fame was as Frank on the 80′s super-awesome TV show “WiseGuy”.
    And oh, Season 2 of BB is incredible and very much NOT its worse. It introduced us to Hector Salamanca, a Mexican band sang about Heisenberg, turtles exploded and ATMs fell on heads!
    The whole idea of the plain crash was to be an unrealistic Karmatic event. It was very clevrly meant to underwhelm. The show doesn’t want you think this is a real story, it wants you to know it’s art, because only in art can you assure that the bad guys get their punishment. This is a moral tale, but not a religious one.

  11. Kim says:

    Yeah………I listened to the whole thing even though I’ve never seen an episode of Breaking Bad. Through podcast I only got a vague idea of how the series works. >.> I like to listen to podcasts while doing things…
    But it does sound like an awesome show, it I get time/access I may try it out sometime :3 Luckily I have a horrible memory so I doubt I’ll remember any of the spoilers, or at the very least I won’t remember what happens to who.

  12. Milo says:

    I clicked around on the timebar for this episode a few times to see what it was like. Not once did I land on Anthony or Ashley talking.

    I’m not sure how I feel about the show getting hijacked by your asshole highschool pals, guys.

    A comic my friend made, thought you’d enjoy

  14. Hey David, n nWhat odds favor Romney. Obama is a head in every battle ground state poll- +5 Ohio, +6 Pennsylvania, +4 Virgina, +2 Colorado, +4 Wisconsin. As you know the popular vote means nothing. it is these states that will make the difference and Obama has led in every poll in these states throughout the year. I am not trying to argue I just want to know what your basing your statement on, is it a fact or opinion. Look I don’t support either Romney or Obama I just want to know what information you have that I don’t. n nAs for Chris Christie, you cant blame the man for giving kudos to a president who has ensured to help his state. Come on now Chris Christie is a great man and a great republican…a real republican who champions the causes of his party like no other Governor does. Don’t turn your back on the man for a couple of great statements he made about Obama. n nDon’t let your hatred for Obama skew the facts or turn your back on your own….thats not right man, it is not American. n nSal
