Breaking Bad Fest

Never say die to the folks behind the upcoming Albuquerque Breaking Bad Fan Fest. Like the Kingpin and his devoted protégé, Miguel Jaramillo and Jennie Rexer are on a quest, a quest to bring the Breaking Bad universe what it truly needs to thrive – and that is a place to convene, revel and rejoice in all the splendor that is Breaking Bad mania.

And unlike any old venue or setting that may house masses for weekend or week-long festivities, such as Star-trek conventions, or general comic festivals, the ALBUQUERQUE BREAKING BAD FAN FEST will take place in the home of Vince Gilligan’s masterpiece.

That’s right, the happy accident that led to Albuquerque becoming a “central character” in the show, leads all roads back to the ultimate Breaking Bad mecca – the only place in the world where tourists from all over the globe can regularly be seen snapping pics at the John B. Robert dam, sitting in a booth at Twisters, in front of Octopus Car Wash, in front of the “White House”, even touring around the city just like the stars!

RJ Mitte on Breaking Bad RV Tours Albuquerqueimage courtesy of BreakingBadRVTours

Come November 2014 these “Baddies” and many more can make the most out of their fandom at the ultimate “on location” fan fest.

“We’re happy to announce plans for an Albuquerque Breaking Bad Fan Fest are moving forward! We were unable to reach our Kickstarter goal, but the Fest will go on! Please stay tuned for more info on this page and www.ABQBreakingBadFest.com. Save the date: November 7th & 8th, 2014!”
-Jennie and Miguel

Burqueños abuzz over Odenkirk

Posted by on June 1, 2014 | Comments Off

A Facebook account that appears to belong to THE REAL Bob Odenkirk has put up a post that has local Breaking Bad fans crying in their Pollos Hermanos mugs:

Bob Odenkirk filming Better Call Saul in Albuquerque Drama

This Blogette says, don’t cry Burqueños! I see the writing on the Facebook wall just like you and it stings a little, but wait! Filming location and setting are oft two very different animals. Am I right, or am I right, or am I right?

Believe it or not New Mexico has played stand-in for such exotic locales as Egypt, Cali, Wyoming, Mexico, other worlds, other galaxies and yes even the East Coast…perhaps you’re familiar with the story of a mad chemistry teacher who made his way all the way to New Hampshire to escape his drug dealing comeuppance. And that my friends was all filmed right here in New Mexico.

So take heart #NM, come November New Mexico WILL hit the small screen again in Better Call Saul – under the talented hand of Sir Odenkirk, led by Masters Gilligan and Gould, for most if not all of its filming. Now the only other devastating turn of events, besides leaving NM to shoot would be if “Lynette” doesn’t land a role:

p.s. OHI has confirmed with sources within the production that NM is the only location on the shooting schedule for now…

p.p.s Filming starts tomorrow, in the Q!

Will “Saul” hold court in spin off history?

Posted by on April 5, 2014 | 2 comments

UPDATE 5/1/14: Happy Days spawned Laverne & Shirley, Laverne & Shirley launched Michael McKean and now Michael McKean joins Breaking Bad prequel, Better Call Saul! - Daily Mail UK

Michael McKearn to star in Better Call Saul in Albuquerque New Mexico

UPDATE 4/6/14: Aaron Paul has made no secret of his wish & intent to be a part of the Breaking Bad prequel, Better Call Saul…

Well, TONIGHT a source very close to the actor and the production tells OneHeadlightInk EXCLUSIVELY that all the i’s have been dotted and t’s crossed, officially adding the actor to the upcoming shoot schedule!!!!

Filming is set to begin in Albuquerque by the end of May and continue through early July.

Better Call Saul Spin off success story

With new character developments emerging and production set to begin within weeks right here in Albuquerque, die hard Baddies around the world await with bated breath.

As anticipation and speculation mounts, separate camps are already beginning to form. Some being of the mindset that Saul can do no wrong as far as being capable of delivering the same level of top tier dark-dramedy so exquisitely executed by its parent, Breaking Bad. While other more paranoid types (count me in here) are terrified that the beloved offspring could turn out to be a bad seed. Please, oh please dear lord (aka Vince Gilligan) don’t let this chip off the old masterpiece devolve into another Joanie Loves Chachi.

Now while sitting in the proverbial waiting room until this project finally airs in November, there is a middle ground to be found which looks a lot like hope. After all, it has been done before – success, even surpassed success of a spinoff from its jump off. Maybe nobody really loved Chachi, but those Milwaukee beer factory workers, Laverne and Shirley too spawned from Happy Days and have since rightfully earned their place in television history.

Just look at how all the hairspray, stone washed denim and shoulder pads of some over privileged teenagers set forth the hit 90s twenty-something prime-time soap opera that was and always will be the one and only Melrose Place. Cynical curmudgeon Archie Bunker and all of his family gave us George and Weezie.

Frasier’s success surpassed that of his ensemble on Cheers. And then there’s Mary. The Goddess who is Mary Tyler Moore and the vast talents behind her shows and characters wrangled her her own show after the Dick Van Dyke Show and even further from Mary Tyler Moore, were we gifted with RHODA!

From the stand-up comedy stages whence he came, Bob Newhart carved out a solid spot for himself in a prime-time comedy show of his very own – AND THEN went on to do it again in the very next decade, dropping the Bob from his Newhart and coming back as a whole new man in an even more successful show. So it can be done.

While it’s still too early to tell who will spinoff from where and what will be what in the prequel world of “Saul Goodman”, a few things are a certainty – Odenkirk can bring it, Gilligan and (Peter) Gould are ferocious and clever beyond our wildest dreams, and there is a standing fan base at the ready to embrace this chapter of the best bad experience of our lives.

In the meantime chew on this: Thursday Showbiz 411 published a scoop claiming that new “Saul” characters will include, “regular players named Burt, Dr. Thurber, Beth, Eddie, and Zak and Luke. Burt is described as a “Kennedy” type lawyer in a white-shoe law firm. Dr. Thurber and Beth are also supposed to be lawyers. Eddie is a career criminal, a cool guy who speaks Spanish. Zak and Luke are skateboarding twins around 20 years old.”

Come on November!
