Breaking Bad Gives Thanks

While everyone else gives thanks today I decided I would do something different. A scene from Breaking Bad based around giving thanks popped into my head so I decided to write it up. If you haven’t seen the show consider yourself dead to me. But really, you probably won’t understand anything although you may find something to appreciate about it, hopefully? Anyway, this scene takes place sometime in the next season. If you’ve seen the show then you can pretty much fill in some blanks as to what may have happened beforehand. I warn you, don’t read if you are not caught up because it’s centered around how the previous season ends. Enjoy and have a Happy Thanksgiving whether you’re thankful or grateful. You’ll get what I mean by that once you read my 6 page masterpiece.

Breaking Bad Thanksgiving Scene by Tim Boyle

Happy Thanksgiving!

    Is it not just the same season but split in half? It’s stupid they’ve done that, I want to see it all now not some now and some next year. Give us two full feckin seasons if they’re going to do that.

    Network execs in America seem to be fucking retards.

  2. Pete Howorth says:

    My turn. I’m thankful for all the
    things Walter Jr. said.

    One of the things Walter Jr. said was Aunt Marie, so she’s thankful for herself hahaha, she’s always been a stupid bitch.

    Excellent stuff, you could deffo make a tv show. I can star as English Guy #3.

      Haha I didn’t even realize it but it fits so perfectly.

      Thanks for reading. I wrote a movie last winter all about pretending to be British that actually isn’t too bad. I think I have an actor all set up in you!

    Hey! Looking forward to reading this!
    But I’ve never seen the show so I need to watch. Will do!

    • Mooselicker says:

      Get ready to be confused then haha

      • robpixaday says:

        It’s not “on demand” — I can’t find it on TV. Will see if AMC has it on their website. Or maybe Hulu.
        Geez. I may remain clueless indefinitely.

      • robpixaday says:

        You’re going to leave the link to your scene live, aren’t you? For a while? I have to have some sort-of emergency eye surgery in the next couple of weeks…will be spending time taking it easy, afterwards, and would love to watch the videos (assuming I find them) and then reading your scene.

      • Mooselicker says:

        Oh yeah I’m keeping this up there forever. No worries. The show is in its last season this summer and what’s the worst thing that happens, someone steals it? I would never get successful off a 6 minute scene and neither would anyone else. They’ll say “What else you got?” and people who steal never have anything else.

      • robpixaday says:

        Me, again.
        I haven’t been able to see any of the “Breaking Bad” shows but I wanted to read your scene anyway so I just did. Here’s the good news:
        Even though I didn’t know any of the characters or what the show’s like, the scene made sense. More than that, it was powerful…the tension built gradually, inexorably…like we knew something was going to happen, couldn’t escape it but it was so subtle we didn’t know what we should be running away from so we knew we were stuck in the middle of some SOMETHING that was going to explode. That’s a tough thing to do at any time, much less in such a short scene. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        And your discussion about being thankful versus grateful, etc., was fascinating. I know it would compel people to think.
        That’s the good news.
        The bad news?
        There’s only one scene to read. WAAAAAAHHHH!!! I want to find out what happened!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        Cut me a break! I’m going to have eye surgery on Monday! Everyone in the world should be nice to me beforehand, just in case!!!!!
        Seriously: Thank you for sharing what you did. You are incredibly talented and I know that if the people who can make things happen for you get to see what you have to offer them, you’ll be unstoppable.

        Normally I wouldn’t say all this for fear you’d think I was just sucking up or something, but who knows what’s going to happen! I might croak and then you’d always wonder if I liked this or not.


      • Mooselicker says:

        Thank you 🙂 I know you’re not pulling my leg because I actually really liked this too. The whole grateful versus thankful was all I started with and I was going to simply write that out as the character but decided I could do a whole scene. You’ve have to literally watch up until the current season to understand everything. I’m glad it worked and the tension came through despite you having no clue who these people are. I may try actually acting out the scene as each character and filming it. It would be ridiculously funny because I would have to play two women and a kid with cerebral palsy, but it’s something to do.

        Good luck with your surgery if I don’t get a chance to say it again!

    I haven’t seen Breaking Bad, only the first episode so I don’t think that will suffice. But that’s a cool, creative idea!
    The first ep didn’t do much for me. Everyone says I have to at least watch the first 3 to really get into it.

  5. Seb says:

    I might be the worst person in the world, but I just don;t care for “Breaking bad”. It moves waaaay too slowly for me.

    • Mooselicker says:

      I can’t argue with you about the pacing, it is slow. I think that’s one of the aspects I love about it though. It’s so realistically boring at times (and not in a way The Wire was where we’re watching people do paperwork). Then on Breaking Bad when something exciting happens it’s amazing.

  6. That was awesome, but I have no idea who those people are.
