Breaking Bad

Post  Banjo on 2009-01-12, 19:42

Season 2 will start shortly but they don't have the date up yet.

They finished shooting S2 just before Christmas. My co-worker Mike is in almost all the eps playing an APD cop.

In Plain Sight is still shooting but they will start showing S2 before they finish all the eps. Next summer is supposedly the start but I've heard Mar or Apr...

Q: Does shooting in Albuquerque enhance that tweakiness?
A: Who knew that this place called Albuquerque
would find such a story being so at home with itself? As a designer,
that's been my greatest pleasure. I've been able to mine all of these
things here that virtually nobody has ever seen before. We have the
ability to be outside in each episode, really using the landscape,
choosing the colors, using the tweakiness of this place to our
advantage. It's given me a pretty rich tapestry to work with.

Q: How much of what we see is Albuquerque, and how much have you built yourself?

A: The ultimate thing is to balance it -- to use what's there and
add what I call "hyper-reality" to it. So you're grounded by the beauty
of the landscape, and at the same time you insert these colors -- these
beautiful okras, perhaps, that allow you to perimeter your people.
Rarely do we shoot a place the way it is, but that keeps our vocabulary
alive. If you really look at these episodes, they're full of little
details that you discover.

Q: Do you have a defined color palette for the show?

A: We all love green here -- particularly for Walt [Laughs].
Initially our color palette was organic and earth-toned. It was also
very important to create a warm enough color for our universe so that
the actors felt real in it. The White house, for example: You had to
feel that family had been there for a long time, and it was real for
them. We built it in two weeks for the pilot and it's still sitting
there. That said, the trajectory of color is very important as the
story unfolds, and we go from a brighter universe into a more solemn
universe. We still contain ourselves in our own color palette, but we
darken it up because the mood is changing, and you want to make sure
you're going with the character.

Q: What was the most challenging set for you to build for Season 2?

A: There's an iconic building in Albuquerque -- the city's first
skyscraper, 14 stories, which was built in the '50s. And we had a
chance to take over the whole 9th floor for our new DEA set, and it's
perfect because it shows the roofline of the whole downtown. So in the
span of three weeks, we gutted the whole floor and designed an interior
that had moving walls, using only one elevator that was only 7 feet
tall. You figure out the materials you'd need to do that and have it
look good. That was certainly one of our great feats this season, and
it's something that keeps us honest: When we're at the DEA, we enjoy
every one of those shots.

My co-worker Mike was telling me more about season 2 yesterday. He plays a cop and will be in every episode. He's a short, stocky guy, I'm not sure he meets the minimum height requirements to be an APD officer, if there are such standards. :|

Anyway.....season 2 starts right where S1 left off. A body is found in a junk yard in the south valley, a drug deal victim. The body is slumped against the side of a junked car, his arms stuck inside the wheel well.

Mike plays a cop entering data into a lap top that he has on the hood of the car. entering crime scene data as it is relayed to him by the DEA agents on the scene. One agent grabs the body and attempts to pull it away from the car. It's stuck, so he yanks on it and one arm is pulled off the body. It took 7 takes to film that scene because the other actors couldn't help laughing.... :lol:

Mike and the other APD actors all get to carry real guns, Glock 40s, but of course unloaded. However, since they are real guns a real APD liason officer must be on set at all times. If an APD officer isn't available then they have to get a retired FBI agent to stand by. The FBI won't supply an active duty agent but there is a local retiree who fulfills the requirement.

Here's the scene that they had to shoot 7 times because they kept laughing when the body was pulled out from under the car and his arm came off.
The real actor with a fake arm velcroed on. My co-worker Mike is the cop on the left holding the laptop.

Some good trailers here from the first two eps this season. Ep 2 was good. I can't imagine how they find those locations to shoot in. The location scout really earns his/her money. They have to match the location/appearance to what the writers have in mind. Sometimes their "finds" exceed what the writers had in mind, which may have been what happened in Ep 2.

Cranston Rides High on 'Breaking Bad,' Directing












[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Of the Journal


This is a busy weekend for Emmy-winning actor Bryan Cranston.

Last night, he had his first feature-film directorial debut on
Womens' Entertainment Network (WE TV), and, tonight, the new season of
"Breaking Bad" premiers on AMC.

The series' new season has been earning huge amounts of critical
acclaim, and rightly so. It stars Cranston as a high school chemistry
teacher whose life is in shambles. He's diagnosed with cancer, he has a
rough family life and his career is stalled. Using his chemistry chops,
he turns to making high-powered meth, and, next thing you know, he's
playing drug kingpin — even if it is more in his mind than in reality.

"Breaking Bad" is both filmed and set in Albuquerque.

"Walter is a smart man," Cranston said. "The angst he's dealing
with, it's an example of a man making bad decisions. They're not good
ones. He could say, 'My God, what have I done,' but he doesn't want to.
He's on this quest."

TV critics are getting it. The New York Times ran a flattering
story on the show Friday, and, this week in Entertainment Weekly,
mystery writer Stephen King said, " 'Breaking Bad' " is "for viewers
who like their suspense cocktails a little stronger than the usual 'Law
& Order' mojito."

The second season starts with Skyler (Anna Gunn), White's wife,
having a baby, and that sets up a whole new level of family tension.

"It changes, it creates more conflict and gives us more happiness
and joy, and there's this wonderful juxtaposition of new life and
Walter looks at his life and sees pending death," Cranston said.

Cranston has become a New Mexican since the show started filming
here at Albuquerque Studios. He has a house near Nob Hill and hangs out
at some Nob Hill night spots.

Before the cast comes back to film the third season of "Breaking
Bad" this summer, Cranston said, he's off to Prague in the Czech
Republic to film a part in "Red Tails," a film about the Tuskegee
Airmen produced by George Lucas.

Because of the Emmy award and his fame as the dad on the hit Fox
show "Malcom in The Middle," Cranston is able to pick and choose parts
that suit him, he said.

"I'm choosey. I want to be. I don't want to work for the sake of
having a job. I don't have to. The project has to be right," he said.

"Breaking Bad" is right.

'To Live and Die'

In an odd case of art imitating life, well sort of, the film "To
Live and Die," which was filmed here last summer, chronicles an
Albuquerque Police Department officer tracking down a serial killer.

"I hope it doesn't ring too true," said producer David Greathouse.

Greathouse, who's produced one of the "Hellraiser" sequels and
slasher pics like "Buried Alive," described "To Live and Die": "It's
about a serial bomber who's pursued by an Albuquerque Police officer.
He has to make the choice: Save one life, or save the lives of many,
and it scars him. Several years later, the FBI gets in touch with him
and they need his help."

The FBI wants him to track down the serial killer.

The release date has been pushed back to this fall, but it has
nothing to do with the APD investigation at the huge West Side crime
scene, where 13 skeletal remains have been found. Police haven't called
it the work of a serial killer.

In "To Live and Die," the serial killer is a bomber, and Greathouse
said he was treated to an inside-out look at APD's state-of-the-art
bomb squad unit with Chief Ray Schultz. That inside peek gives the film
a touch of reality, he said.

"When we wrote it, originally it was written for San Diego," he
said. "I just changed the story and said, 'Let's just call it
Albuquerque.' "

Greathouse is planning more films out here. He's working with MGM
on bringing two more films here and, with a little bit of luck, a new
"Stargate" TV series spin-off.

'Breaking Bad' Contest

If you dig "Breaking Bad," take a shot at being on the show by
entering AMC's "Breaking Bad" contest. Simply record a video of
yourself performing one of Walter White's monologues and post it.
There's a lot more info at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
— including text of the monologues. Hey, I'm a fan, so I recorded a
video that I'm going to send in. Vote for me, or, send in your own, and
I might just vote for you, too. Check out my video at ABQjournal.com.

Re: Breaking Bad

Post  Banjo on 2009-03-19, 19:11

Today at work Mike and I were discussing if there was a technical error in the last episode. Lojack isn't used by law enforcement here so no one installs it in their cars since it wouldn't do any good to have it. Yet in last Sunday's ep, Hank the DEA agent wonders if Jesse's Monte Carlo, the car he's trying to find, has Lojack installed. Later he finds the car out on the West Mesa and Mike and I wondered how he was able to drive right to it. If it was because of Lojack, then that would be bogus. I'll have to watch again to be sure what Hank said about Lojack. It repeats tomorrow night if you want to know too. Suspect

Judging by the area where the house is I was thinking it was way out on the West Mesa but Mike said it was only 3 miles west of
Coors Blvd. and just off Central Ave (Old 66). His wife was the costumer that day and was out at the shooting site. The costumer has to go to every shooting site because the actors have to change into costume right there. They can't wear the costumes beforehand, and take them off and give them back to the costumer as soon as their scenes are shot.

Mike doesn't know how they found that old house but it certainly fit the bill for what the scenes/plot called for.

Mike was explaining how they do scenes where there is gunfire and bullet holes. Of course the guns are firing blanks and the bullets hitting the ground are done by planting "squibs" small explosive caps which are set off at the right time. If a bullet leaves a hole in a car or other object, they drill a hole(s) put a squib in then cover the hole with thin plastic the same color as the object. When all the squibs are exploded in hopefully the right sequence and time, then it is up to the editor to put everything in sequence and make it look realistic. Sometimes a reshoot is required for gun fight scenes because the timing/pattern was too far off for the editor to make sense out of it.


Episode 2: Grilled

Tuco. Marie and Hank comfort Skyler, who is distraught over Walt’s
disappearance. Hank pays a visit to Mrs. Pinkman on some
not-so-official business.

  • Directed by: Charles Haid




Episode Recap






Out in the desert, a red lowrider riddled with bullet holes bounces
wildly on its hydraulic suspension system. Shards of glass, spent
casings and drops of blood litter the ground.

Back in Albuquerque, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
briefs his DEA team about a raid on Tuco's headquarters. "Get a big ole
raging hard-on at the idea of catching this piece of s___," he tells
them. After rallying the troops, Hank tells Gomez he's taking personal
leave to search for [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], who has gone missing.

Over at Walt's house, a detective questions [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
about the events leading up to Walt's disappearance. Skyler says that
Walt was agitated about something, but that he didn't explain what it
was. In the desert, Tuco releases [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and Walt from the trunk of Jesse's car.

Skyler and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
distribute "Missing" posters of Walt. Marie tries to use the occasion
to try to explain "the whole tiara thing," but Skyler cuts her off:
"Not now."

In his ailing uncle Tio's ramshackle house, Tuco orders Walt and
Jesse to empty their pockets. Among Walt's belongings is the
ricin-laced meth and his wallet, which reveals to Tuco his true
identity. "I like doing business with a family man," Tuco says.
"There ís always a lot of collateral."

Tuco grabs Walt by the neck and asks if he can trust him.
Absolutely, Walt replies. After railing about his suspicions that Gonzo
snitched to the DEA, Tuco says he wants to get high. Jesse tries to
convince him to sample the poisoned meth but Tuco balks at its "head
cheese" smell. Jesse improvises, saying it contains a "secret
ingredient," chili powder, but Tuco opts for the "blue magic" he bought
at the junkyard, claiming he hates the spice.

One snort gets Tuco so ripped he wants to shoot Jesse, but Walt
intervenes, after which Tuco announces that his cousins are coming to
smuggle Tuco and Walt into Mexico, where Walt will be able to cook meth
24/7. As for Jesse, he'd better hope there's room in the trunk for him.

Back at the White household, Marie lets slip to Skyler her suspicion
that Walt had a second cell phone. She thinks maybe Walt used it to
contact his marijuana dealer: Jesse. Hank says this is grasping at
straws, but Marie insists he question him.

Hank visits Jesse's mom, who reveals that Jesse drives a red Monte
Carlo that he converted to a lowrider. Hank calls Gomez to find out if
Jesse installed a LoJack car-tracking system, and if so to try to get a
fix on the vehicle's location.

Back at his uncle's shack, Tuco slices at raw meat, preparing to
cook burritos while a TV news report details the demise of Gonzo and
No-Doze. Walt changes the channel, afraid that Tuco will suspect him
and Jesse of ratting him out should he learn that Gonzo is dead and
not a DEA informant.

Jesse suggests Walt sacrifice himself and attack Tuco before he
learns of Gonzo's fate. "Oh, so my life is not the priority here,
because I'm going to be dead soon anyway?" Walt asks. He proposes
instead that they slip Tuco the ricin in his food.

Tuco's mute uncle, Tio, catches Walt trying to lace Tuco's burrito
and repeatedly rings the bell attached to his wheelchair to warn his
nephew. Tuco misreads Tio's warnings as a request to trade burritos,
but when he gives his uncle the poisoned burrito Tio knocks the plate
to the floor. Shaking, Tio points a finger at Walt.

After the meal, Tio continues to ring his bell until Tuco realizes that his uncle is trying to warn him about Walt and Jesse.

Outside, holding a gun to Jesse's head, Tuco gets Walt to admit that
he tried to poison him. "Youíre an insane, degenerate piece of filth,"
Walt says. "And you deserve to die." Enraged, Tuco takes his eyes off
Jesse, who pulls a rock out of the ground and smashes Tuco's head with
it. During the ensuing scuffle, Walt grabs Tuco's assault rifle and
Jesse ends up with his pistol, shooting the drug dealer in his side.

"Let him bleed," Walt tells Jesse. The two hustle to Jesse's car,
but quickly realize they don't have the keys. Another car approaches
from the distance. Thinking it belongs to Tuco's cousins, they scramble
out of Jesse's Monte Carlo, leaving the rifle behind. But the arriving
vehicle belongs to Hank.

Tuco hobbles over to Jesse's car just as Hank pulls up. Reaching
into the car for the rifle, Tuco accidentally activates the vehicle's
hydraulic system. Hank and Tuco fire away at each other until Hank
finally hits Tuco with a fatal head shot. (they both reloaded at the same time, and as Tuco raised up from behind the car, Hank had already reloaded and was waiting for him and plugged him in the chest, not the head. At least that's the way I saw it.


Walt, watching from a distance as his brother-in-law emerges from
the firefight, grabs Jesse's arm and the two run into the desert.

Last night had the usual shocking surprise as seen at the end of this clip:

There's a Texas commercial at the beginning...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Also
it was fun to see Cuates de Sinaloa singing at the beginning. They
wrote that song especially for the show. To see/hear it click on the
above link then click on "sneak peeks", then scroll down to Cuates de
Sinaloa "Negro y Azul" .

Even if you don't have broadband it's worth waiting for it......3:34 video.

You
might mistake their music for a pared down version of Mariachi music,
but it isn't and they have created a whole new genre based on
traditional Mexican "mountain" music that was largely unknown before
they came on the scene.

I'm closer to tracking down where Jesse's duplex is. Last night when he walked out the front door and down the sidewalk, the street sign on the major cross st. said "Lead Av ". That narrows it down considerably.I couldn't catch the name of the little side st. where the duplex is, it's right on the corner, so I'll watch the repeat on Wed. to see if I can spotthe name. If that fails I'll just cruise the length of Lead. Av. With that distinctive cream and red paint it shouldn't be hard to spot. I'll take pics...

Where Walt's house is, is harder to guess. It's typical of many Albq. tract homes and the camera views don't narrow it down sufficiently except that it's probably in the N.E. quadrant.

The "Raks" hardware store is entirely fictitious and I can't place that entrance, although they probably put a fictitious sign on a real store.

I am such a bad fan ! beatdown beatdown beatdown I don't know how I stand to look in the mirror each morning ! bonked on the head

Of course there's a Raks hardware store. There are two in town and a really big one in Socorro. Just because I rarely go to the parts of town where they are, is no excuse... geek Walt probably went to the one in the south valley. The scene where he notices that another shopping cart holds most of the ingredients for making meth is hilarious.

I still can't find Jesse's duplex. A co-worker who used to hang out in that part of town thinks that the little T-intersection street is Spring St., but I can't find it anywhere along Lead Av. Looks like I'll have to watch the repeat... scratch

Using a city paper map and Google Earth, I'm 99% sure I've located Jesse's duplex. It's on the corner of Lead Av. and Terrace St., 3 blocks south of the SW corner of the UNM campus. I will ride down there on Sunday morning and take pics. cheers

RJ lives here now, and likes to ride dirt bikes but the producers said no, as long as they are in production because they don't want him to risk getting hurt. He uses crutches on the show, but not in real life.

The vomit scene was very realistic...he had had 3 shots of Tequila....

Q: Walter Jr. gives himself a nickname this season. Any idea where "Flynn" came from?

A: I know it was an old movie star -- Errol Flynn. It took me a
while to figure out where it came from though. I asked Vince, "Flynn?
Out of all the nicknames?" And he's like "Well, that's why I picked
it." With Walter Jr., you don't see too much of his life. You hear a
lot about it, and you question a lot about it, but you don't really see
much. I'd like to see where Walter Jr. goes when he goes out. Is he
really going to Louis's, or does he go out to some rave in the desert?
I think of what ifs -- what would happen if he went to this place or
did that? I'm still working on it. There's probably some stuff going on
at school that his dad knows nothing about.

Q: Well, Walt knows all about the tequila...

A: Yeah! That was fun, except it was a long day. You don't realize
it, but that tube they ran down my back was so cold and big. It ran
from my shirt, down my neck, down my pants to an air hose that's
shooting up cold fake vomit. It was lovely. The first couple of times,
they didn't know how much pressure they should use, so it was shooting
up in my nose. So I'd sneeze and all this corn came out. Where did
Walter Jr. eat all that corn? I couldn't figure that out, because
you'll notice every meal it's always bacon and eggs, and sometimes
pancakes.

I found it ! Right were I thought it would be... bow The one odd thing is that there isn't all those trees in front in the scenes in the show and they couldn't have grown that large since the scenes were filmed, and of course there will no doubt be more shots of the duplex when season 3 starts shooting so it will be interesting to see if they keep the trees or CGI them out... scratch It looks like it's actually a 4 - plex with the other entrances on the west side. There is a whole row of these apts. along Lead Av. to the west, down to the next cross st.

Jesse lives in 323, his somewhat reluctant girlfriend Jane lives in 325 and is the mgr., although her father owns them and she must keep her relationship with Jesse a secret, although it appears it's going to cause trouble for everyone concerned before S2 is over. :unsure:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

She was reluctant to rent to Jesse at first but when he pulled out a wad of bills and paid first, last, and security deposit she relented and even lets him smoke in the apt. (weed) . At first the only furniture he had was two lawn chairs and a plasma TV he hung on the wall. Later he got a bed and in the last ep., we see that the lawn chairs have been replaced with fancy red leather recliners. Of course the interior shots are done on a set down at Albq. Studios, but the interior/windows/lighting/ etc. are just what you would expect from the "real" interior.

This has a lot more fans than I thought:

And they remind me of Roswell fans in some respects, they have more "passion", I suspect, than the fans of In Plain Sight. This may be because BB has an ongoing plot line, as did Rowell whereas IPS is more of a "stand alone" plot show. Also it's much "grittier" and the characters are in danger or have more "interesting" personal experiences, more like Roswell.

Here's another thing that BB does to heighten fan interest. Imagine what could have resulted if Roswell would have done something like this:

Yeah I do think if Roswell had done that it would have made a big difference. But, did we even have Blogs back then?

That's a nice house. And...it's for rent? Hmm...Wink You know it looks like the front part could be made into a little shop...and somebody could live in the back part.

Ah...daydreaming..my favorite past time....

I haven't watched this show but I think I'll have to start now..

All great ideas were crazy before they were brilliant. Alexander Bell thought he could talk over copper wires, and even worse, Marconi thought he could send messages through thin air! When David Sarnoff wanted to launch the first radio network (now NBC), one investor ridiculed him by asking, "Who would pay to send a message to no one in particular?" Jules Verne thought people might one day travel under the ocean or, even more ridiculous, fly in outer space. How crazy was that!? ~~From Success May Require Weirdness

That's not the best neighborhood for a "little shop" , but it's not the worst either...

In last night's ep the trees are there just like in the pics. Walt bashes in the back door/window with a large ceramic figurene trying to roust Jesse from his heroin/meth induced stupor (Jane made him do it she's a "recovering" Rolling Eyes addict.) and find out where Jesse has stashed the 38 lbs. of "product" which he must get down to "exit 13 on the 25" within an hour if he is to meet the major drug distributors sched. who has agreed to "market" it. But good luck with that Walt because "exit 13" would be somewhere down near El Paso... :lol:

Meanwhile one of Jesse's salesmen was gunned down by a 10 year old on a bicycle at the intersection of 2nd st. and Hazeldine Av. downtown. Pics to follow when I can get down there.....don't expect to see blood on the street... Wink

Another fake business appears, "Los Pollos Hermanos"...The Chicken Brothers. I know it's fake because there is no such restaurant here, plus it's owned by a major drug dealer and they would never connect a real name with such a fictitious character.

While Walt is searching for the bags of meth in Jesse's house, his wife goes into labor early and delivers a baby girl......it's always something... Rolling Eyes :lol:

Does that mean I'd have to buy you dinner at Gardunos, Penny ? :shock:

Bryan Cranston emailed Mike and asked him if he was available to work on S3. I may look into the possibility myself. Mike is going to give me the casting lady's info tomorrow.

With the help of an ex-skydiver fan in Santa Fe, ( the season finales last scene enabled him to use his sky diving skills, don't ask . Rolling Eyes ) we have figured out the location of Walt's house. It's not too far from Jen's house. This weekend I may ride up there and take a pic. I hope the real residents don't mind. Lol. Although they have had Walt's Pontiac Aztek parked in their driveway often enough and that's bad enough... :lol:

Breaking Bad S3 was supposed to start filming next month but has been delayed 3 months until the creator and chief writer wraps up another project.

This is pretty funny;

On the show they make Bryan look a lot older, part of it is his acting, and they make Aaron look wasted, which Jessie sometimes is from drugs...

I didn't hear about this in time to consider doing it , but I doubt I would have anyway. $80 to leave my car parked over there and trust a security guard ?....I don't think so....and anyway I would have had to take my bicycle along and ride it back home, not the safest route either, although I don't need my car during the week. They must be shooting in the closed Circuit City parking lot and wanted to make it look like it was full. The CC signs are long gone from the store and Ultimate Electronics is soon moving in, but whether their name will be visible on-camera, I don't know.
