The Breaking Bad Felina Review. Is there anything left to say? Of course there is and you’ll hear plenty more from me this week on FanBrosShow, but for now it’s time for Chico Leo to deliver the goods on this Special Delivery episode aptly titled The Breaking Bad Felina Review. Now that I’ve got the SEO out of the way let’s all pour out a little Schraderbrau for the dearly departed Breaking Bad. It’s too soon, I’m just going to get out of the way so you can get on with reminiscing with Chico Leo on this very special episode of FanBrosShow.
The Breaking Bad Finale Preview Episode…. Yeah that’s right its time to say goodbye… to all our friends…. No we’re not ending the FanBrosShow, but this Sunday the show that we have all come to know and love is ending. Breaking Bad airs it’s finale this week and the FanBros convened to pay homage to what has been an incredible ride. But that’s not all you’ll get in The Breaking Bad Preview Episode, we also take the time to review Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD, The Blacklist and a few other new fall season shows that you might want to check out. Me and IllaYC go in on Comics I Copped and also give our first impressions of GTAV. Stay with us this ones a doozy. Shouts to J. Ozoria for reaching out to me and helping to edit this episode. All the little dope sound effects and what not is all him. You’ll be hearing more of his work in the coming episodes. Salutes.
Questions Of The Week:
1. When did a show lose you? What moment made you say WTF during your favorite show?
2. What is still lurking on your DVR? What shows or movie are you ashamed to say exists on your DVR?
Please pray for Kieran James Romney and while you’re at it tell Rihanna and Teyana to go be rich and quiet. Then get into the moment when The Read got to interview the amazing Jenifer Lewis.
King Asiatic Nobody’s Equal. It’s not every day we get to sit with a legend. Kane goes deep with his history, what he thinks about Mr. Cee, how he produced the majority of ‘Long Live The Kane’ with no credits, how Doug E Fresh taught him how to rock the crowd, how some cats from The Juice Crew wasn’t fuxin with him, how he really wanted to battle KRS-One, what Madonna smells like, how he shopped a young Jay Z with no success, why he started wearing purple silks and such… This one is a marathon, but with Kane, ain’t no half steppin’.
The Granite State episode is the penultimate episode of Breaking Bad, and in my opinion it’s as if the creators of the show rolled a big ball of granite to the top of a hill only to see it come rolling down in the last episode next week. In Granite State everything is getting set up for the finale, and Chico Leo is here to make sure everyone knows whats about to go down for the Finale. Not much for in the ways of spoilers this week, as this week is more of just moving pieces into place so everything can get tied up nicely next week.
To top it off Chico also speaks on the recent demise of Copper (RIP) as well as the new season of Boardwalk Empire. Shouts to Neil Drumming for his excellent article on Boardwalk and in particular the element of race relations that they have brought on this season.
The RIP Nintendo Episode might be an extreme title, but to say that our hearts hang a little lower today at FanBrosShow would be an understatement. Yesterday the world lost Hiroshi Yamauchi the man responsible for making Nintendo the cultural icon that it is today. Even though Nintendo isn’t going to die anytime soon we had to stop and reminisce on the greatness of Mr. Yamauchi and Nintendo in general. I guess the timing of AG Da Coroner being on the show may have been a little spot on, but we weren’t wallowing in death too much as we celebrated Nintendo as well as the life of Asac Schrader who we lost this week on Breaking Bad. We also discuss the difference between an actor who plays himself and one who plays a variety of characters, what Horror TV show had Benhameen running from the room, and AG tells us why he thinks Breaking Bad might be better than The Wire. Props to mdk7 on the amazing image above. Rest In Peace Hiroshi Yamauchi and may Nintendo live on forever.
QUESTIONS OF THE WEEK:

The Star Wars Vs Star Trek Episode is one that I’ve been wanting to do for a minute now, and since Just Blaze decided to bless the show with his presence I figured now was the time for this momentous occasion. That’s right Super Producer and Super Geek King Just Blaze joined us to discuss Star Wars Vs Star Trek, and why the discussion between them is really all about Science Vs Religion. We get a little deep and that’s not even counting Just Blaze’s amazing ability to recall the most minor of geek details. Chico and Just may have to battle one of these days, but for now enjoy as we bring you the usual greatness that you’ve come to expect week after week. Old Robocop > New Robocop.
