You're in the BBS documentary? I can't believe I missed you, now I have to watch again. Are you in the opening with all the users reminiscing about the BBS scene, or one of the developers later in the piece?

Mostly on the first disc, in the opening. I'm the guy with two pinball machines behind him - the 3rd person on-screen at 1:05. But I have appearances throughout at least the first disc.

I remember the segment well, but your lack of facial hair made it tough to key in on.

That first disc is worth its weight in gold. The rest is interesting historically, but the first disc is like the old BBS BBQ's we used to have. Thanks for taking part, it's one of my favorite documentaries.

That and GET LAMP.

Question about the clubhouse. There was shot of a timeclock. What was their "legit" business? I'm sure they used it to launder their drug money.

My guess is that was just set dressing for whatever that compound was before the AB took it over. I doubt there was any legit business going on at that compound, even a money laundering one.

Dear Mister Cranston. I wanted to write you this email - so I am contacting you through Jeremy Barber - I take it we are both represented by UTA . Great agency.
I've just finished a marathon of watching "BREAKING BAD" - from episode one of the First Season - to the last eight episodes of the Sixth Season. (I downloaded the last season on AMAZON) A total of two weeks (addictive) viewing.
I have never watched anything like it. Brilliant!
Your performance as Walter White was the best acting I have seen - ever.
I know there is so much smoke blowing and sickening ******** in this business, and I've sort of lost belief in anything really.
But this work of yours is spectacular - absolutely stunning. What is extraordinary, is the sheer power of everyone in the entire production. What was it? Five or six years in the making? How the producers (yourself being one of them), the writers, directors, cinematographers.... every department - casting etc. managed to keep the discipline and control from beginning to the end is (that over used word) awesome.
From what started as a black comedy, descended into a labyrinth of blood, destruction and hell. It was like a great Jacobean, Shakespearean or Greek Tragedy.
If you ever get a chance to - would you pass on my admiration to everyone - Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Aaron Paul, Betsy Brandt, R.J. Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Steven Michael Quezada - everyone - everyone gave master classes of performance ... The list is endless.
Thank you. That kind of work/artistry is rare, and when, once in a while, it occurs, as in this epic work, it restores confidence.
You and all the cast are the best actors I've ever seen. That may sound like a good lung full of smoke blowing. But it is not. It's almost midnight out here in Malibu, and I felt compelled to write this email.
Congratulations and my deepest respect. You are truly a great, great actor.
Best regards
Tony Hopkins.

Looks like Tony didn't expect it to go viral and they took it down after a bit, but later confirmed it was indeed him.

It came from the idiotic and criminally* misleading marketing scheme for the DVD set of the first half of Season Five, which gave no hint that it wasn't the entire season, leading many people to the obvious but wrong conclusion that the second half of Season Five was actually Season Six.

*Not literally, of course. Civil liability at best...class-action lawsuit, anyone?

Actually, by all traditional industry standards, it should have been called season six. Usually, if they split a season up and air it in two separate chunks, they're still produced all together as one chunk, and then the network just chooses to air the show with a break in the middle. But with BrBa, they wrote and produced the 8 episodes for S5, and then went on hiatus, and then wrote and produced the second 8 episodes of S5. Any other show, that would have been S6, but because S6 would have required new contracts for some of the actors, they somehow figured out a way to legally still call it S5, even though it really wasn't.

The BESTEST thing about Sundays now that #BreakingBad is gone... is that #LowWinterSun is finally gone too.

I just deleted my unplayed last 5 episodes and the season pass of Low Winter Sun. I decided I had better things to do with my precious TV viewing time then slog through that murk.
