Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad Boiling Flask

“If the feds show up, let me know,” said BJ sitting at his computer in our old shop in East Hollywood.

That will get your attention. “What?” I asked.

“There’s this pilot that needs some glassware to put together a meth lab. So I just spent the past few hours surfing websites, researching everything you need to put together a meth lab,” said BJ tentatively. “Then I ordered pretty much everything you might need online and shipped it to some warehouse in New Mexico.”

“Did you clear your browser?” I asked, as if that would do anything. “Don’t worry about it.” Thankfully when we did get a call from the FBI later on, they just needed props for forensic training exercises.

That pilot was Breaking Bad, now entering its final season. Congrats to everyone who worked on the show over the years. Special thanks to propmaster Mark Hansen for continuing to use Dapper Cadaver as one of his many sources for props. We especially enjoyed providing some burn bodies and body parts a couple of seasons back.

Tune into the Breaking Bad Season Premiere on AMC this Sunday at 9/8c. Can’t wait to see how this all will end…
