Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Milda Pocius

    He shot a child...

  • Joe Mahma

    Todd is one of my 3 favorite BB characters. Everyone gets down on him for shooting the kid when he was the only one of the 3 who knew it had to be done and made the decision to do it in a split second. Ya gotta admire that kind of thinking and action.

  • Mel C.

    The GIF of him shooting a gun made me do a spit take. Thanks for this!

  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    My laughter just woke up half the people in my building. Thanks for this.

  • intheyear2000

    Okay, this is hilarious. When I was watching the episode, I actually thought 'hey, it's kind of sweet how Todd's looking out for Lydia' when they broke into the nursery. Then when they met in the diner I thought maybe in a f*cked up Breaking Bad way they could be good together! But then I thought maybe I have issues for thinking those things. So thanks for making me feel better Joanna!

  • St

    Meth Damon. I actually like creepy Todd when he is not killing innocent people. And we should be thankful to him because Todd twice saved Jesse now.

  • kbenton

    Oh man I just did a spit-take lol at my work desk. Thanks a lot, Joanna. :)

  • GDI

    Is it bad that I could not contain my laughter throughout the post?

  • There'll Be Pancakes

    DUDE CAN ACT. I hope he gets like a million offers after this

  • Ted Zancha

    Is the next guide going to be "19 reasons why Tuco Salmonca is an Excellent Anger Management counselor. " Because that list needs to happen.

  • dorquemada

    "Ted Beneke's Break Dance Party!" Next on Fox!

  • Mrs. Julien

    The theory that Malcolm in the Middle is really Walter White's new life after relocating?

    Breaking Bad is Lance Clarke's new life after relocating due to authorities finding the bodies of Tyra's ex-boyfriends.

  • InternetMagpie


  • emmalita

    How having a list of qualities you are looking for in an SO can go horribly horribly wrong.

  • Thor

    It's like this list came straight from Cosmo

  • emmalita

    It's a lot like the list I had in my 20's, except for the ice cream part. I should have added ice cream to my list.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Most important of all: He supports your career.

    Lydia could do worse.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Lydia is almost as fascinating as Todd. She's a terrified rabbit who is consistently able to summon the courage to act profoundly rapacious. She is a bottomless pit of greed. but the fear is giving her an ulcer. I bet she has to sleep with a mouth guard, too.

  • Artemis

    Dude, I'm a lawyer and I have to sleep with a mouthguard. I bet Lydia doesn't sleep at all.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I'm an assistant and I sleep with a mouthguard.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    See? Todd could be good for her, help her relax. Or at least kill the threats before she realizes they're present.

  • chanohack

    Help her relax? Ewwwww.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    You know Todd would be attentive. He probably has a few specimens in jars he practices on...

  • Mrs. Julien

    Best. Minion. Ever.

  • JoannaRobinson

    Last night Dustin said "Todd obliges" and it destroyed me.

  • Mrs. Julien


  • Blake

    And when you add up all 19 you get a total psychopath.

    Hare Psychopathy Checklist

  • crackblind

    And that is why this show really has attention to detail!

  • b

    you forgot that if he likes you, 70 million dollars isn't worth no longer being in your company.

  • Reading this list on my phone. Finding it hilarious that the ad at the bottom is for bleach. "Share your bleachable moments." I feel like my brain needs bleach after thinking about Todd for very long.

  • Mrs. Julien

    a. There is no such thing as too many gifs in a Joanna post.

    b. That is easily my favourite line from The Wire.

    c. There is no "c".

    d. Tangentially related: Did anyone else notice that Lydia was wearing Louboutin pumps as she walked through the carnage she requested? Louboutins always have red soles. That is a production design team paying attention to detail.

    e. Does the voice in anyone else's head say "Meth Damon" every time they see Todd? The voices in my head say other things as well, such as echidna or feline helicopter license, but I'm trying to keep to the matter at hand.

  • kbenton

    Regarding e, and the topic at hand, this only leads to further suffering when you apply it to the Sarah Silverman "I'm Fucking Matt Damon" song/spoof. *shudder*

    Oh, and yes, I did notice the Louboutin's. My first thought was, "Who the fuck wears those to a desert meth lab!?" My second was, "Well, yeah, Lydia." and only then did I appreciate the detail of it.

  • Mrs. Julien

    You are getting Sarah Silverman on my Breaking Bad. Please stop that.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    That line pops in my head whenever I take notes. Then I smile like an imbecile for a while.

  • alannaofdoom

    The voice in my head says, "Lance?"

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    In my head, Coach accidentally created Todd, after years of getting his name wrong.

  • dizzylucy

    Yes. I picture a "Say my name!" like scene, which is when Lance, er, Landry broke bad and became Todd.

  • Mrs. Julien

    In my head, "Ernie Pantuso created Todd? Huh?", but then I realised whom you meant by "Coach".

    (That little joke is goin' out to the over 40 set here on Pajiba. You're counting down with Mistress Prolixity, here at WK1990 in the a.m. Next up, why no one will ever top the "Newhart" series finale, and Simply Red's "If You Don't know Me By Now" to help get you through the rest of your morning commute. Call or fax your song requests now.)

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Alternate theory: Woody is actually Todd, all grown up.

  • Bert_McGurt

    See, I missed THAT Coach (by the time I was able to comprehend, Woody had taken over) so I automatically skipped over to Craig T. Nelson. Still incorrect!

  • Mrs. Julien

    All I can remember of that show is Shelley Fabares and her perm.
