Am I morally bankrupt, or some kind of weirdo? I have a massive thing for Gus from Breaking Bad.

minouminou Tue 22-Oct-13 20:05:41

Just that, really.

Wannabestepfordwife Tue 22-Oct-13 20:10:27

Yanbu he doesn't do it for me but I can see the attraction. I prefer mike (god that man does it for me), hank, the psycho twins and a bit of Saul.

Tbh breaking bad is my porn

AndiPandi Tue 22-Oct-13 20:13:47

Which one is Gus?

Wannabestepfordwife Tue 22-Oct-13 20:18:41

The one that runs the chicken resterants you know the petite one with glasses

minouminou Tue 22-Oct-13 20:18:50

Well, at least we won't be scrapping over men, then....;)

Crowler Tue 22-Oct-13 20:21:27

Seriously? I find him totally asexual.

Crowler Tue 22-Oct-13 20:22:21

I do find Hank slightly attractive. blush

I just saw the series finale a few nights ago, I feel lost.

CurseOfCurves89 Tue 22-Oct-13 20:22:39

Yanbu smile although I prefer Walter and Kuby.
You'd only be unreasonable if it was Gael wink

Wannabestepfordwife Tue 22-Oct-13 20:25:26

Yes mike! If he got hold of you, you don't know whether he'd kill you or give you a good seeing to and he's a good provider.

minouminou Tue 22-Oct-13 20:25:35

Poor Gale.

It's v odd, though, as normally that awful Tod Alquist would be my cup o' tea.

Wannabestepfordwife Tue 22-Oct-13 20:25:42

I have said too much

gemdrop84 Tue 22-Oct-13 20:26:32

Im in love with Saul!

GeeinItLaldy Tue 22-Oct-13 20:28:03

I thought I was the only one with a bit of a thing for Mike. I feel less deviant now that I know I'm not alone grin

Don't get the Gus thing at all so you're on your own there.

I'm on series 4 and I can't wait to get to the end to see how it all pans out but at the same time I don't want it to end.

Crowler Tue 22-Oct-13 20:28:56

Apparently Saul has a spin-off coming in the form of a prequel?

Or so my husband says.

minouminou Tue 22-Oct-13 20:29:22

Ha ha ha!

Jesse does not do a thing for me at all, though.

minouminou Tue 22-Oct-13 20:31:32 looks like I'm the deviant, as Mike has more takers.....

Hangs head in shame....

KirjavaTheCorpse Tue 22-Oct-13 20:32:04

Oh no me too! blush

What is it about him? Very psycho sexy. Weird.

And actually Jesse is a bit of alright as well, in the early seasons when he dressed like a hoodrat, wtf is wrong with me.

Wannabestepfordwife Tue 22-Oct-13 20:32:38

Jesse is a bit wet

minouminou Tue 22-Oct-13 20:34:19

Phew.... I'm not alone.

FunkyBoldRibena Tue 22-Oct-13 22:17:01

Mike...oh yes indeedy.

DevlinMaccabee Tue 22-Oct-13 22:32:40

I heart Skinny Pete

KatyTheCleaningLady Tue 22-Oct-13 22:34:01

Yup. Skinny Pete for me.

GatoradeMeBitch Tue 22-Oct-13 22:35:43

I thought Gus was cool, but I could never find him attractive after what he did to Victor... He had the best death scene ever though!

Mike is my BB crush. He's probably the oldest guy I've ever fancied, but there's something very sexy about him blush

thenightsky Tue 22-Oct-13 22:38:34

Saul for me.

BatPenguin Tue 22-Oct-13 22:50:41

I love Jesse especially when he's all manky looking

DisappointedHorse Tue 22-Oct-13 22:54:10

Gus would get it, as would Walt.

I know, I'm sorry.

Boaby Tue 22-Oct-13 22:56:07

Ooh it's Jesse all the way here...chemistry bitch! Hahaha

roughtyping Tue 22-Oct-13 23:05:58

Jesse. And the twins. And Badger...

minouminou Tue 22-Oct-13 23:09:09

Do you know what....I wouldn't touch Walt with somebody else's.....

Feeling the (platonic) love for Mike, though. He's a nice guy.

Well, except for the killings and that, but I just put that down to pragmatism.

KatyTheCleaningLady Tue 22-Oct-13 23:11:20

Crazy 8 was pretty fucking hot.

I fell a little bit in love with Jesse.

minouminou Tue 22-Oct-13 23:15:43

I have a chum who reminds me of a non-murdery kind of way.

KristyThomas Wed 23-Oct-13 06:45:59

Jesse for me! Love Gus as a character, but not in that way

anon2013 Wed 23-Oct-13 06:50:37

I think I'd quite like Huell (sp!?) for winter. Bet he gives great cuddles and is nice and warm.

SantiagoToots Wed 23-Oct-13 06:54:41

The twins, crazy eight, hank and sober Jesse. Oh and skinny Pete when he's playing piano.

Sober Jesse is just so purdy how could you not? I come over all "Dinah Washington".

Like what she says, not Walt with someone else's!

ChesterDrawers Wed 23-Oct-13 07:12:12

Jesse all the way for me. I actually have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with him, the level of which I've not experienced since New Kids on the Block were around the first time. I keep googling pictures of him when I'm not watching just to remind myself how lovely he is.

Only on season 3 so don't think I know who Mike is yet, but you can keep Gus, he gives me the creeps.

roughtyping Wed 23-Oct-13 07:15:12

Chester, I got like that about David Tennant a few years ago <blush>

One of the cartel guys was just beautiful. Don't think he had a name though..

minouminou Wed 23-Oct-13 07:25:39

Oh.... I feel dirty and slightly ashamed now. Like Stepford upthread, I have said too much.

minouminou Wed 23-Oct-13 08:20:27

But at least I'm not as bad as my friend....she fancies George Osborne.

ChesterDrawers Wed 23-Oct-13 08:45:46

Honestly Rough, it's ridiculous. I just cannot get enough of him. I am hoping it fades as it is very distracting. He's not even my type, but there is just something about him.

And I seriously NEVER do crushes.

Goes off to Google Jesse Pinkman again

grin Gus ? I really don't see it, even in the flash backs when he was a youngen.
He really just does seem a sexual, I can't picture him having a cock, just a smooth front bum like Ken and MrTumble

VikingVagine Wed 23-Oct-13 08:52:54

Before I write this I would just like to add that the actor was born in 1992 so he's 21 .

Flynn is quite attractive in the later episodes.

I get the Gus thing, he's in Revolution, playing a similar character and he's still got that je ne sais quoi !

Love Jessie "Science bitch" .

Yes to Mike.

That's all. <ahem>

minouminou Wed 23-Oct-13 09:56:35

I don't think Gus is asexual...I think the subtext is that he's gay and is still grieving for his lost partner.

V complex character.

Still wouldn't do Jesse, though, despite "Yeah, MAGnets, yo!"

outforawalkbitch Wed 23-Oct-13 10:01:59

ooh Roughtyping, do you mean that cartel bloke when Gus goes to get revenge at that house with the swimming pool?

oldgrandmama Wed 23-Oct-13 10:06:04

Jesse and Saul for me! Although I did find Gus rather fascinating - seemingly so calm and gentle, lovely voice. And I do like fried chicken.

minouminou Wed 23-Oct-13 10:11:34

Saul's ace, but he looks like he might be a bit smelly.
He's just grubby underneath it all.

YorksDame Wed 23-Oct-13 10:35:52

No love for Badger? wink

roughtyping Wed 23-Oct-13 10:44:05

Ourforawalk, I think so. May need to rewatch tonight ;)

I love badger!!!

And Flynn, yes, he is lovely! Am only 27 though so feel it's allowed ;)

UriGHOULer Wed 23-Oct-13 10:44:29

Badgers voice grin

I'm glad no one finds Walt hot.

Mikes my guy. We're watching 15 ep10 so I won't say anymore.
<zips lip>

Bettercallsaul1 Wed 23-Oct-13 10:54:11

Don't fancy Gus at all but he's an excellent character - very worthy opponent for Walt, which is the essential for the plot.

As someone earlier said, great death scene - gives new meaning to "dead man walking"!

TheHeadlessLadyofCannock Wed 23-Oct-13 10:59:48

Saul: tick
Jesse: tick
Flynn: tick blush
Hank: tick blush

NOT Mike, or Walt, or Skinny Pete, or Badger! Hank's colleague/partner (can't remember his name) is quite cute. Dimly remember I fancied one of the cartel guys in Mexico in Season 4 but can't remember either his name or anything about his character.

minouminou Wed 23-Oct-13 11:17:15

I'm starting to feel ashamed again......

Looks like there's a tiny minority of us.... We're firmly in the - ahem - specialist interest camp.

Deux Wed 23-Oct-13 11:19:00

I was a little bit in love with Jesse. Such lovely teeth and so glad mr white built him a robot afterall. I too have googled photos. The shame.

Skinny Pete, loved his appearance in the last episode. Sure he'd make me laugh out loud. Nice muscles and could be serenaded by piano. <swoon>

Also the cartel guy in Say My Name. I would.

Best TV ever, even beating The Killing for me.

Crowler Wed 23-Oct-13 11:20:36

Interesting, Gus as gay and his murdered ex-partner was his lovah?

Gus is so meticulous, I think he'd find the idea of sex repellent.

DontMentionThePrunes Wed 23-Oct-13 11:22:35

Argh I can't read the thread as I'm only half-way through season 4. But yes, it's not that Gus is hot so much as he has an absolutely amazing face. He just changes one muscle and goes from solicitous and pleasant to utterly evil and murderous. Alec Guinness could do that too.
Also, he has a voice like melted butter.

meekenough Wed 23-Oct-13 11:25:23

Noooooo Aaron Pauls the hot one smile

Deux Wed 23-Oct-13 11:26:44

When Walt had dinner at Gus' house there were kids toys in the hall way but we didn't find out much about his personal life.

Steben Wed 23-Oct-13 11:27:19

The things I would do to Jesse....Yo!

Crowler Wed 23-Oct-13 11:30:23

Right. I forgot about the kids toys.

I like Jessie, but this article about Aaron Paul kind of made me ugh. Warning: this may make you love him more, depending on your view.

minouminou Wed 23-Oct-13 11:30:41

Would they involve magnets and wire?

minouminou Wed 23-Oct-13 11:31:42

That was addressed to Steben, btw!

Bettercallsaul1 Wed 23-Oct-13 11:59:36

The amazing thing about the series is how your allegiances change. Gus is generally the ruthless criminal mastermind, opposing Walt (and making Walt seem morally better in comparison) but, in that scene where they are the prisoners of the cartel, you are rooting for Gus, along with the others , to escape (and survive!)

ChilledGhost Wed 23-Oct-13 12:39:19

I love the second sentence of Prunes post! wink .

juneau Wed 23-Oct-13 12:44:44

I have a bit of a soft spot for Jesse. He's kind of a dope, but he's cute when he's not all drugged up and skanky-looking. He has lovely eyes, don't you think?

Saul is hilarious - he's my favourite character. It's such a great show. We're half-way through series 4. I'll be devastated when we're done.

Gus reminds of Obama. And Mike? He's so ugly! Yuk.

DontMentionThePrunes Wed 23-Oct-13 12:48:01

I quite fancy Saul. Now that is inexplicable.

DontMentionThePrunes Wed 23-Oct-13 12:48:56

Mike is another one with an amazing face. for radio
He is so totally unattractive. I don't think I've ever seen anyone as badly put together on tv.

DontMentionThePrunes Wed 23-Oct-13 12:49:16

(Thanks chilled ghost smile )

Check out the guy who plays Gus on twitter, comes across as total opposite in real life.

TheHeadlessLadyofCannock Wed 23-Oct-13 15:01:08

Gus aka Giancarlo Esposito is a legend. LOVED him in Homicide: Life on the Street.

Agree with those who say Gus is sexless though and probably 'has a smooth front bum' grin.

FairyJen Wed 23-Oct-13 15:03:05

We had a takeaway the other week and I swear gus fring delivered it. Complete with suit and glasses and everything. Spoke very nicely as well. I did a proper double take when I opened the door!

gaggiagirl Wed 23-Oct-13 15:10:11

Walt junior for me please. He looks beautiful in a polo neck on his twitter page.
Hank perhaps.
Walt, yeah go on then.
Gus has a beautiful face but I don't think he would do nookie on anyone. Sorry OP.

UriGHOULer Wed 23-Oct-13 15:33:50

But mike is sooooo cool. He's a grandad, which puts him way off the agenda for me. And he's not a looker, but <shrug> he's the best character in the whole thing.

TheHeadlessLadyofCannock Wed 23-Oct-13 16:26:41

I do love Mike's long-suffering expression whenever someone else mucks up and he has to go in and fix it grin

Bettercallsaul1 Wed 23-Oct-13 16:46:32

Mike has a lovely voice - beautiful tone and expression.

Bettercallsaul1 Wed 23-Oct-13 16:48:40

And Saul is hilarious and generally has a solution to everything, which makes him attractive.

Bettercallsaul1 Wed 23-Oct-13 16:54:33

FairyJen - Are you sure it was Gus that delivered your takeaway? Did you see his face? ( or just half of it?)

kay1975 Wed 23-Oct-13 17:03:21

I like Walt! I'm going to miss him.

BatPenguin Wed 23-Oct-13 18:02:26
minouminou Wed 23-Oct-13 18:58:39

Been reading up about it today.... (Instead of working).
Apparently, and I missed this bit, Gus rescued Max from some Santiago slum and paid for his amazing chemistry education.
Vince Gilligan has told fans that they're "not wrong" to think that G&M were a couple.....
So he lost his love and has repressed all his feeling...hellbent on rewengie.....

Sniff, sniff.

BazilGin Wed 23-Oct-13 19:36:01

Haisenberg for me...sometimes! I am married to a lovely guy, so not sure where this came from. And skinny Pete.
Feeling maternal towards Jessie.
Miss them all!

SnakeyMcBadass Wed 23-Oct-13 19:45:48

Jesse would get it. Bitch.

minouminou Wed 23-Oct-13 19:49:48

You'd need to Gatorade him, then?

AmazingDisgrace Wed 23-Oct-13 20:31:27

Jesse all the way phwoaaaaaar

NickL Wed 23-Oct-13 20:40:54

Gus ... I thought he preferred choking the chicken. grin

minouminou Wed 23-Oct-13 21:20:54're all being howwible....

I know bb isn't real and I have totally missed the point of the thread, but I am a little disappointed that Los Pollos isn't real, I really want to they their chicken. It was supposed to be different to the other standard chicken and chip shops.
And yy to Walt jr / Flynn. I would wink. Jesse is my bb true love though. It's his voice, bitch and those beautiful eyes <quivers>

roughtyping Wed 23-Oct-13 22:20:32

DH says he has a thing for Huell. And Badger. (He says Skinny Pete can watch.)

shock grin
I wonder what happened to Huell, do you think he is still waiting for H and G to come back ?

Bettercallsaul1 Wed 23-Oct-13 22:43:36

Hmm, Huell - now that would be a specialist taste.

He has got kind eyes, I bet he would treat you proper.

Bettercallsaul1 Wed 23-Oct-13 22:48:20

What about Hector? The mature version, obviously.

Bettercallsaul1 Wed 23-Oct-13 22:50:05

You'd have to keep him off your best sofa, obviously, but other than that...

Does he ring your bell Saul ?

Bettercallsaul1 Wed 23-Oct-13 22:53:47

Oh, Saul's definitely straight, Arya.

FieldsOfCorn Wed 23-Oct-13 22:58:00

Jesse for me too but I so so wanted Walt and Jesse to be a gay couple.

Bettercallsaul1 Wed 23-Oct-13 23:09:58

No, definitely father and son relationship.

CrispyFB Wed 23-Oct-13 23:21:33

The chap who plays Gus is currently in Revolution, playing a not entirely dissimilar role, to be honest. Just a very different show!

roughtyping Thu 24-Oct-13 07:07:35

Saw the episode where Skinny Peteplays piano last night. What a guy. I love that Badger & Skinny P are just like Jesse's wee pals, a bit silly but good at heart. (Please, Breaking Bad, don't take this away... Combo was sad enough!)

wintertimeisfun Thu 24-Oct-13 15:23:33

jesse is lovely, especially with some camera shots ie close up in the rv when he does his first few cooks in season 1 (i have been watching it again you see....). just caught up with the gus season (2). never get bored of it, could watch it over and over :-D

TheHeadlessLadyofCannock Thu 24-Oct-13 16:20:15

I didn't think anything much of Jesse until we saw him out of his super-baggy hip-hop attire and in bed with the 'junkie girlfriend'. Realised that he was quite slightly built but wiry and strong with it <<hubba hubba>> and that was it!

ChilledGhost Thu 24-Oct-13 16:29:36

where as us gents got Skyler and Marie sad . Had a man crush on Walt after the beginning of "Say My Name" though wink

wintertimeisfun Thu 24-Oct-13 18:28:36

actually, i thought skyler seemed to be alot prettier towards the end, especially in the last 8 episodes although i didn't fancy her :-D never had a crush on walt though, i thought the nicest he ever looked was when he was daydreaming about a time when he was working out some chemistry using a blackboard and gretchen was sitting in the room with him.. best drama i have ever seen, dh feels the same and he is a fussy bugger

GatoradeMeBitch Thu 24-Oct-13 18:48:11

I think the show reacted in part to all the hate Anna Gunn got online for her character. There were complaints that she dared to get 'fat' in season three (in my opinion her perceived weight gain was largely due to an unflattering jaw length haircut). I think she was quite hurt by all that, so the show let her become a bit more glamorous.

sickofsocalledexperts Thu 24-Oct-13 19:01:00

I too am a bit obsessed with Gus - my God he ran a tight ship (meth empire)

ChilledGhost Thu 24-Oct-13 19:15:16

I thought Anna Gunn might've been pregnant over season 3/4 as she looked not fat a bit swollen in some episodes

ChilledGhost Thu 24-Oct-13 19:16:30

Anyway I don't care, I'm missing the show a lot! sad

sickofsocalledexperts Thu 24-Oct-13 19:23:34

I miss it very badly, odd for a tv series. Anyone got any ideas for a replacement (love the Wire too, done the Killing)?

minouminou Thu 24-Oct-13 20:33:25

Weirdo OP here.
Glad to see that it's not just me after all....even though there's not many of us in Camp Gustavo....

Yeah....I think it is the controlled nature that does it, especially as you know it's not the real him.

Sigh.....such a beautiful face.

minouminou Thu 24-Oct-13 20:34:29

I'm even thinking of buying DS a Los Pollos Hermanos top for Xmas.....

sickofsocalledexperts Thu 24-Oct-13 20:34:35

I found a very satisfying wikipedia entry re Gus, kept me happy for half an hour!

sickofsocalledexperts Thu 24-Oct-13 20:35:06

And i have the los pollos t shirt!

minouminou Thu 24-Oct-13 20:35:44

I know....I keep finding rubbish excuses to stop work for a few minutes to go on YouTube....

Wannabestepfordwife Thu 24-Oct-13 21:03:12

sick have you seen 24 or prison break they are both amazing

cinnamonbun Thu 24-Oct-13 21:32:43

I read an interview with Anna Gun recently where she said the reason she put on weight was that she had some sort of (unspecified) illness and had to take cortisone, which made her swell up.

I can just about get why you'd fancy Gus. But whoever said the twins - they terrified me! I've had nightmares about them. Had a weird fascination with Mike though (despite the fact that he's old enough to be my dad). Funny that no one's mentioned Todd (Skyler's boss)?

Hallowhuey Thu 24-Oct-13 21:38:18

My DP has a man crush on Jesse. I'm sure of it grin

Solaia Thu 24-Oct-13 22:03:37

Hands off, all of you, Jesse's mine, bitch! He is so incredibly beautiful, there were entire scenes I had to rewind because I wasn't listening I was just staring at the contours of his face blush

Skyler's boss was very handsome in a conventional way but not all that phoar-sexy. If you get my drift, yo.

CurseOfCurves89 Fri 25-Oct-13 21:12:14

It makes me a bit sad that no one else like Kuby. Although I like him mostly because bill burr is my favourite comedian.
All for me I guess smile

KristyThomas Sat 26-Oct-13 09:33:05

Winter - I know what you mean - I started watching BB just a few weeks before the finale, so I watched all 5 seasons in quick succession. After the last episode, I went straight back to the start again. I can't normally watch TV shows over again that quickly, but BB is exceptional (in more ways than one!)

Needadviceandfast Sat 26-Oct-13 11:38:37

Jesse - beautiful, though it took a couple of series for me to realise as he just seemed too skinny and hip hop to begin with.
Walt - some sort of attraction with the power and I think he has a sexy voice but something doesn't feel right there.
Ted - very attractive indeed but he became pathetic which is a massive turn off.
Gus - sorry, but no! He just seems plastic.
Mike - no. And Ps. No.
The twins - hubba!
Saul - too greasy looking.

Definitely best tv drama ever in my opinion. We've been struggling to find a replacement too sick , and previously we were obsessed with The Wire. Just discovered Weeds and Orange is The New Black, also The Shield was really good.

roughtyping Sat 26-Oct-13 11:58:22

Ooooh Weeds! Haven't watched that in years, only watched the first couple if seasons I think

minouminou Sun 27-Oct-13 22:13:36

Sigh.....finished BB last night.
Trying to persuade DP to start at the beginning, but he's not having it.

I've never been so engaged with a series before!

Needadviceandfast Sun 27-Oct-13 22:56:20

I found it the same, minou. I was totally obsessed! Actually felt bereft when it ended, so my sympathies are with you this evening... wink

roughtyping Mon 28-Oct-13 19:13:41

Finished last night as well! How cute was wee Baby Holly.

I did like the ginger guy.

Will def need to watch it again!

LimitedEditionLady Tue 29-Oct-13 12:35:42

Ohh yes jesse is lovely

LimitedEditionLady Tue 29-Oct-13 12:37:36

I think skyler is pretty..

walterwhiteswife Wed 30-Oct-13 19:49:12

im also at a loss to watch

Oogly Wed 08-Jan-14 15:19:20

Another massive Jesse fan here. I think the guy who plays him, Aaron Paul used to do modelling. He has such amazing teeth and eyes.
