It has been well established that we are not fans of whisky. We did like our last whisky drink though, so there was a chance we might like the Walters. Unfortunately it didn’t work out that way. The aroma of the drink was primarily Scotch, but there was a hint of citrus. The flavor was pure terrible. I thought it tasted vaguely like a cigarette. All Mrs. Bottle could say was how awful it was. I am used to hearing her say how awful it was and I was glad Walter wasn’t here to hear it and feel the same shame I have.
Note: There will be some Breaking Bad spoilers if you can spoil something that aired 2 years ago
Breaking Bad can sometimes be difficult to watch because the protagonist Walter White is frequently unlikeable. In this respect he is much like the Walters cocktail. Sometimes I wonder if Walter might be the worst person on TV. While trying to think of someone worse, there was a repeat of Toddlers and Tiaras on in the background that caught my eye. For no reason at all, I thought we could list some direct quotes from a mom on that episode and some events from Breaking Bad:
Toddlers and Tiaras: “I decided to put SamiJo in pageants ‘cause that was the whole reason I wanted to have a daughter”
Breaking Bad: Walt strangles Krazy 8 after holding him hostage in the basement
TandT: “When I found out that Sami was a girl I wanted to name her ‘America’. I wanted her name to be Miss America”
BB: Walt lets his partner’s girlfriend choke to death on her own vomit.
TandT: “I prayed and prayed and prayed that God would give me Miss America”.
BB: Walt tries to poison Tuco
TandT: "In Sami’s age group they don’t tend to tan all the babies. She tends to be the only one."
BB: Walt misses the birth of his daughter because he is making a drug deal
TandT: “A lot of times judges can have problems with babies in full glitz. They may expect babies to not be spray tanned, to not have make-up so we’re really hoping that they judge for full glitz.”
BB: Walt browbeats his 15 year old son into drinking tequila until he pukes.
TandT: “The baby category is very competitive"
BB: Walt is trying to make enough money to take care of his family.
Ultimately I decided that Walter isn't the worst since he has some redeeming qualities. I cannot say the same for the Walters.
