‘Breaking Bad’ Pop-Up Experience Coming to Los Angeles Starting Next Week

Breaking Bad pop-up in Los Angeles

Ok, yeah, it’s cool there’s a Breaking Bad movie coming out next week and all. It’s no trip to Albuquerque, but it’ll be nice to get your Jesse Pinkman fix for the first time in six years. And though El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will immerse us back into the sinister world we fell in love with in the late-2000s, it won’t put us smack in the middle of the show the way, say, a themed pop-up bar might. Oh, wait… here come the guys from Saved by the Max, who just in time for the Breaking Bad ...

Real restaurants from TV and movies

Restaurants, cafes, bakeries , bars, and the like are often a vital part of a story’s plot. Maybe it’s where a group of friends have coffee and spend time together or where two characters plan a murder. We all wish places like Central Perk from Friends existed or that we could visit The Three Broomsticks in Harry Potter for a Butterbeer. Unfortunately, while shows and movies use a myriad of filming locations all over the globe, not all of these are accessible — or even real — for fans to visit...

This week we examine episode 9 of season 4, “ Wiedersehen .” Jimmy and Kim “I messed it all up.” So says Jimmy near the end of “Wiedersehen”, an episode in which he comes very close to destroying everything via his own stupidity.

Why Albuquerque is great in fall

When most visitors go to New Mexico, Santa Fe is usually their number one stop, flying into the Albuquerque Sunport and then driving on to the Fe. But in leaving Albuquerque, they’re missing out on discovering a vibrant city full of history, excellent food and drink, Hispanic and Pueblo arts and culture, and the best nightlife scene in central New Mexico. Albuquerque is fast establishing itself as New Mexico’s cosmopolitan center, and one of the best times of year to take in the flavors, exci...

The final bar? How gentrification threatens America's music cities

Austin, Nashville and New Orleans have thrived on the success of vibrant music scenes. But as rents rise and noise complaints become more common, do they risk ruining what made them famous in the first place?At a Sixth Street bar in the heart of Austin, Texas a pop up version of Seb’s jazz club from the Hollywood hit film La La Land is being set up – its blue letters yet to be switched on. Nearby, a replica of Breaking Bad’s Los Pollos Hermanos fast food restaurant has appeared, causing a minor ...

Weirdly passionate about Texas

Leslie Leslie Cochran left Texas (and the world) a number of years ago, but that doesn’t mean he’s not still revered as a legend: as the flamboyant homeless man who ran for mayor, stood up to police corruption, and was the embodiment of Keep Austin Weird. Whataburger It’s not as though you won’t find Texans visiting Wendy’s or McD’s at 1 AM, if they crave a burger, but Whataburger is the chain we’re drawn to.

‘Better Call Saul’ Review: Who Came Out on Top in ‘Slip’?

(Every week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Better Call Saul season 3 by answering one simple question: who came out on top when the credits rolled?) Better Call Saul doesn’t miss a beat. There’s no such thing as a wasted moment, which has never been more evident as it is in “Slip,” the eighth episode of this season. It’s so titled because it marks the definitive return of Slippin’ Jimmy, as well as significant turns in the arcs of the rest of the cast as well. Over the past few episo...

‘Better Call Saul’ Review: Who Came Out On Top in ‘Sabrosito’?

(Every week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Better Call Saul season 3 by answering one simple question: who came out on top when the credits rolled?) The majority of concerns voiced about Better Call Saul have been about the show’s dual nature. Strictly speaking, the show’s a two-hander, with Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) going down one path and Mike (Jonathan Banks) going down another. They’re roughly parallel, yes, insomuch as they intersect and will keep intersecting until the events of Bre...

(Every week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Better Call Saul season 3 by answering one simple question: who came out on top when the credits rolled?) The title of this week’s Better Call Saul, “Sunk Costs,” refers to a cost that’s been paid and can’t be recovered, i.e. it refers to irreparable damage. A lot has happened over the course of the last two seasons, but the ground lost has always seemed like it could be regained. But something’s snapped, now. We’ve past the point of no retu...

‘Better Call Saul’ Creator Vince Gilligan Confirms That Jimmy Is Going To Jail In Season 3, Episode 3 ‘Sunk Costs’

Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) finally made his entrance in AMC’s “Better Call Saul” Season 3. Episode 2 saw Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) help Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) find out the identity of the person tracking him. It took him to Los Pollos Hermanos, a fast-food chain of restaurants that is a front for Gus' laundered money.

Better Call Saul (Season 3)

After binging season 2 recently (and loving it to bits), I just couldn’t help but check in on season 3 (even though these days I prefer to wait for a series to be done its season before watching it). The first episode was pretty good, but oh man, episode 2, with the return of Los Pollos Hermanos… I’m so fucking in.

‘Better Call Saul’ Season 3 Video Lets Gus Fring Teach You About the Fast Food Business

In its second season, Better Call Saul became as good as Breaking Bad, the series it spun off from in the first place. It achieved this by finding a unique voice to call its own, refusing to feel just like its predecessor. In place of Walter White, a monster hiding in an everyman’s clothing, the series put us on the side of Jimmy McGill, the kind-hearted schemer whose every step toward “Saul Goodman” was like a jab to the soul. It’s a remarkable show, even if its very different tone hasn’t won ...

Dream of working for Los Pollos Hermanos? Here's what it takes (video)

Ever wanted to work for Los Pollos Hermanos? Now is your chance — sort of. A new "training video" was posted online for the restaurant, hosted by restaurateur and businessman Gustavo Fring. Of course, Los Pollos Hermanos is a fictional restaurant in the AMC show "Better Call Saul," which is filmed in Albuquerque. The Emmy-nominated show kicks off its third season Sunday. While the restaurant is fake (a South Valley Twisters stands in for Los Pollos Hermanos on the show), the economic impact of...

‘Better Call Saul’ Season 3 Early Buzz: More Great ‘Saul’, But Don’t Expect ‘Breaking Bad’

Bob Odenkirk‘s Jimmy McGill is set to return on April 10, 2017 with Better Call Saul season 3. The Breaking Bad spin-off/prequel is one of my favorite series currently running on television, so of course I was interested when the first season 3 reviews started to hit the web. What is the early buzz? As you may know, the show follows Jimmy’s evolution from con man to loveable ethically challenged lawyer Saul Goodman (who goes on to play a major role in Breaking Bad). While the show has regula...

The restaurants have already been spotted at SXSW and Los Angeles. Each chicken joint has the full menu on display, just like the one in the fictional restaurant made famous by Breaking Bad. Sadly, the pop ups aren’t actually serving the full menu though. So far, they’ve only featured curly fries and a variety of dipping sauces. During th...
