Breaking Bad "Felina" Recap: How Did It All End?
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
In the most emotional scene of the AMC drama's series finale, high school chemistry teacher-turned-meth kingpin Walter White (Bryan Cranston) visits his wife Skyler (Anna Gunn) for one final goodbye. The word harkens back to the series' pilot episode, during which Walt tells his soon-to-be partner in crime Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) that he is "breaking bad" because he is "awake." Walt's terminal cancer diagnosis wasn't so much a death sentence as it was a reminder to live. Knowing his days are numbered, Walt leaves his watch at a gas station pay phone. [...] although Skyler doesn't want to hear Walt's speech about family, Walt is going to protect his legacy before he goes - even if it takes another lie and a couple of laser pointers to threaten Gretchen and Elliot into delivering what's left of Walt's $9 million to Walt Jr. After dispatching an unwitting Lydia (Laura Fraser) with a ricin-filled packet of Stevia, Walt turns his sights on Todd (Jesse Plemons) and his uncle's cre ...

Laura Fraser -- Breaking So Good in <i>Breaking Bad</i>
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Laura Fraser is absolutely addictive as the oh so very bad, and sexy Lydia Rodarte-Quayle in Breaking Bad, so much so I was relieved to see her back in the last half of season six, giving the old boys club a run for their money, as she follows in Mr. Whites bloody footsteps. While Fraser may be a fresh face on American TV, she is not new to acting, appearing in Vanilla Sky, as well as starring in some of BBC's most popular series and films, including Single Father, He Knew He Was Right, Talk to Me, and Florence Nightingale. Yet in Breaking Bad she is definitely no Florence Nightingale -- she is as badass and twisted as they come as Lydia, a lawyer with the heart of a drug lord, who has what you could call a rather complex and high strung psyche. One of the reasons why Fraser is phenomenal in this role is that she weaves some cinematic magic that draws you in, and makes you believe she really is Lydia. Whether she's scared to death while on the verge of being killed by Mr White and ...

The 'Breaking Bad' Premiere Party Was Awesome
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The "Breaking Bad" cast gathered for a premiere party in Culver City, L.A. Wednesday night to celebrate the AMC meth drama's final eight episodes in style. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul arrived in an RV that looked like it was right out of the show's first season. Once the party got started, several varieties of blue meth-inspired rock candy were on the menu, as well as themed cocktails, all served next to an RV riddled with bullet holes that was glowing blue on the inside and spewing off steam. But the evening's highlight was a "Breaking Bad" cake featuring the likeness of creator Vince Gilligan's severed head on a turtle, a callback to the show's infamous exploding "Tortoise Scene" from Season 2. HuffPost TV West Coast Editor Maggie Furlong was at the party and snapped a picture of the tasty creation to tweet: This is happening at the #BreakingBad premiere party right now pic.twitter.com/lEoMHBTpAA — HuffPost TV (@HuffPostTV) July 25, 2013 Even dearly de ...

OnEarth: Honeybees to EPA: Where Is Thy Sting?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
By Scott Dodd, OnEarth The list of fruits, vegetables, and field crops that rely on honeybees for pollination is truly astonishing: apples, avocados, carrots, cotton seed, peaches, pumpkins, strawberries, sunflowers ... it goes on and on. There's stuff on the list that I'm not fond of, like onions, and things I couldn't live without, like peanuts (well, peanut butter, anyway). The same is surely true for you. So it should frighten us all to learn how badly honeybees fared last year, as a mysterious malady killed more of them than ever. The New York Times reports today that commercial beekeepers say at least 40 percent -- and maybe half -- of their hives succumbed to colony collapse disorder in 2012, marking the worst annual die-off since the unknown condition first surfaced less than a decade ago. OnEarth put the phenomenon on its cover in 2006, before it even had a name. We just called it "The Vanishing," and indeed, the story still plays out like a horror movie, with h ...

OnEarth: EPA Lets Pesticides on the Market Untested
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
By Laura Fraser, OnEarth You probably wouldn't expect to find pesticides in your toothpaste or your gym socks, but they might be in there all the same. And the vast majority of those pesticides have made it into everyday products without adequate oversight by the Environmental Protection Agency. That's because they've been approved through a bureaucratic loophole known as "conditional registration," which means they haven't been fully tested to ensure that they pose no threat to human health or the environment, as required by U.S. law. Most of us think of pesticides as the chemicals that get sprayed on weeds or used to kill rodents and bugs, but they're actually found in everything from cosmetics to food containers, as well as antimicrobial textiles (such as the exercise shirt you might have worn to the gym this morning). By killing bacteria and other microorganisms, pesticides can help clothes resist stains or help containers keep food fresh longer. But some have also pr ...

WATCH: Walt And Lydia Talk Business In 'Breaking Bad' Mid-Season Finale Preview
Beleb Dirty Laundry - over 4 years
The mid-season finale of "Breaking Bad" airs tonight, and Walt has some loose ends to tie up. In a sneak peek at tonight's episode (above), Walt (Bryan Cranston) shows up at a restaurant in his full-on Heisenberg getup to meet with Lydia (Laura Fraser) to discuss a list of men who know too much about Walt's business. "Let's take a look at the list," Walt says. "What, I'm not tying up loose ends for our mutual benefit?" he says, when Lydia seems wary. "You're tying up loose ends, and I don't want to be one of them," she replies. "Once I give you that list, maybe I've served my purpose and I'm just one more person who knows too much." While Lydia is now an integral part of "Breaking Bad," the actress wasn't exactly an expert on the AMC series when she nabbed the role. "I was a little bit too nervous to watch ["Breaking Bad"] before," she said in an interview with Vulture. "I was wanting to stay in the world that I was reading from in the script. But after that ...
