‘Tis the season to get intimate with a tall glass of delicious Straight Outta Austin! goodness! This week we cover Damon Lindelof still making excuses for Lost’s awful ending, JJ Abrams acknowledging his addiction to lens flare, Samuel L. Jackson confirming Elizabeth Olsen to be joining the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and best of all an “all new” Breaking Bad courtesy of Columbia!
It goes without saying that Walter White is a conundrum. While he has done more to destroy the life of Jeese Pinkman than other anybody else, he’s also risked his life time and time again in order to save him. This episode completely exemplifies that. Felina is not only the Series Finale that we wanted but it’s the one that we deserved.
Ozymandias begins with a flashback to Walt and Jeese’s first cook. They’re at the exact spot where Walt buried his fortune and was eventually apprehended by Hank. After Walt and Jeese finish their cook, Walt calls Skylar to explain to her that he’ll be working late and won’t be home in time for dinner. She’s okay with his tardiness and asks him to bring home a pizza. The scenes end as they fade away, brining us back to the present day.
We’re still BobbyBeatle-less in this week’s episode of Straight Outta Austin! but we still have a great show for you, of course. We discuss the upcoming spin-off to The Walking Dead TV series as well as the Breaking Bad’s spinoff, Better Call Saul. We talk about how Netflix pick its programming based on what’s popular among pirates. Only that discussion turns into a rant about everything that’s wrong with Netflix. We do an impromptu review of Kick-Ass 2 and we respond to DC’s response to the Harley controversy.

Because you didn’t pay attention in chemistry class you’ll never be Heisenberg and therefore never have barrels upon barrels of cash. I know, the truth hurts. Thankfully you can have the next best thing*, the complete season of Breaking Bad, in a barrel!
This is it, the episode you’ve all been waiting for. Or if you’re a Walter White sympathizer, the episode you’ve been dreading. Walt is finally beaten at his own game; he’s outsmarted, manipulated and placed in handcuffs thanks to the two biggest liabilities he’s refused to kill. Hank and Jeese that is. There are still 3 episodes left, but it’s clear that no matter how it ends, Walt won’t get away unscathed.
Confessions ended on a wild cliffhanger, with Jeese pouring gasoline all over Walt’s house after learning that it was Walt, not Gus who poisoned Brock. Well this episode, Rabid Dog, deals with the aftermath. We find out how Walt really feels about Jeese, Hank gets his first taste of what it’s like to work with Jeese and Saul treats us to another colorful metaphor.
