Felina // Breaking Bad’s Epic Finale


After 6 years of painful Breaking Bad related stress and anxiety, AMC’s dramatic story of a high-school teacher gone bad came to an end.

When I say gone bad, I mean really bad – probably the worst imaginable transformation of a person. From Walter White, the family man, sweetheart, high school chemistry teacher, downtrodden by circumstance but upheld by a good heart; to Heisenberg. Vengeful murderer and leader of a massive meth empire. It’s the kind of opposite Bildungsroman that sends shivers all over.

For the first time in a long time, I felt satisfied. I didn’t think that would happen.



I was recently alerted to an exciting new original AMC series by @Cephalopodboy.

The show is based on a series of graphic novels by Robert Kirkman, which have been produced since 2003. The series follows a town stricken by a zombie apocalypse—an ever-clichéd theme—but the television show looks extremely promising. Directed by Frank Darabont (The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption) and starring Andrew Lincoln (an English actor best known for his role in Love Actually), the series premier will be a 90-minute special following the police chief who awakens from the hospital to discover the world he’s always known has broken into a delicious zombie frenzy.

Check out the trailer here:



Is it just me or does the world want to see House and Cuddy get it on?

This is my first September in 19 years that I haven’t returned to school. Usually, this was a bittersweet time of the year; with the weather still lovely but spent in a classroom setting, and a new television season upon me.

Here are some shows that are certainly worth watching.


This is proof that FOX might not be so incredibly bad after all. If you’re a fan of curmudgeonly, Vicadin-addicted  doctors then this is the show for you. English funnyman Hugh Laurie (Blackadder, Jeeves and Wooster) returns to play the genius diagnostician. Season 7 begins September 21, 2010.


Alright. Make that a second argument for FOX. For someone who completely loathes musicals, this popular comedy/drama grew on me. The next season promises Lady Gaga and the whole Coldplay catalogue. Tune in also on September 21, 2010.


A Showtime production. Not too long ago I wrote about this. The previous season was extremely titillating. The serial killing resumes September 26, 2010.

Modern Family

Screenwriter Christopher Lloyd (Frasier, Wings) has saved Ed O’Neill’s career by creating a ten-fold improved version of Married With Children. This mockumentary-style television series is hilarious. Watch the second season sometime this month… I haven’t been able to find an airing date.


For anybody else who watches this show, the shock of the finale from the last season still lingers in my head.

Showtime’s acclaimed television series Dexter will start answering some of those questions September 26.

In the meantime, watch the trailer!!!


The new Ninja Video… Re1ease

An equally concerned member of the Ninja Video community alerted and directed me to a new streaming site that offers full television shows and films in high quality.

It’s called Rea1ease, and its interface is very similar to the original Ninja Video, but doesn’t require the beta applet. I was unable to recognize any of the administrators but it’s conceivable by the design, interface and aesthetic that some of the old team is working on this.

Sure to cover any legal implications in the wake of Obama’s recent crackdown on online piracy, the disclaimer reads:

Re1ease.net only provides links to other sites on the Internet (DivX host sites, Zshare, megavideo.com, veoh.com and others.) We do not host or upload any video, films, or media files.
Therefore, re1ease.net is not responsible for the accuracy, compliance, copyright, legality, decency, or any other aspect of the content of other linked sites.
If you have any legal issues please contact the appropriate media file owners / host sites as we are unable to forward messages on your behalf.

That sounds good to me, and by writing about this and putting a link to the site exempts me in the same spirit. Happy streaming everybody!
