Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #146: Watching Breaking Bad in the Wrong Order

All hail the great Helix Fosil
All hail the great Helix Fosil


I know..I know..The news in this episode can barely be called such!

I mean we were stretching the definition as it was, but this show was recorded after two weeks, and then has sat on my harddrive for a further fortnight due to work.

However this stupidity pales into comparison of the Older Gowen brother who when watching Breaking Bad managed to buy and start watching the final series before watching the fifth series.

After we were done laughing at that stupidity we got on to the task at hand, we did some drinking and we spoke about gaming. On the list of topics for the show were Twitch plays Pokemon, The Rise and Fall of Flappy Bird, Mario Kart 8 News and even a little bit of World of Warcraft managed to slip in there.

Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
