  1. 1. Why „the bacon“ matters (some few examples) 1
  2. 2. The family„s transformation illustrated in Walt‟s three birthday breakfasts First birthday breakfast Second birthday breakfast Third birthday breakfast From episode 01:01, Pilot Skyler writes 50 in veggie bacon on Walt‟s plate. Light, humorous atmosphere. From episode 05:04, Fifty One Flynn and Walt pressure Skyler into writing 51 on Walt‟s plate – because it‟s a tradition. She is reluctant. Humorous to Walt, Flynn and the audience - but not to Skyler. From episode 05:01, Live Free Or Die Walt is alone in a public restaurant, sick and with a different name. This time he gets his plate of bacon and eggs handed to him by a stranger – and has to write 52 himself. Tense mood. 2
  3. 3. The family„s transformation illustrated in breakfast scenes (continued) Walt Skyler Flynn Depressed, meek Lovingly serves veggie bacon for health reasons Teenageryprovoking to both parents Second birthday breakfast Dominant, very self-confident Depressed, trapped, couldn„t care less about cholesterol Teenageryprovoking to his mom, idolizes his dad Third birthday breakfast “Stone-faced”, alone, away from non-existent home - Gone - - Gone - First birthday breakfast 3
  4. 4. Other completely random Breaking Bad examples Los Pollos Hermanos and meth mass-production parallel Various other breakfast scenes illustrating the different states of the family  Episode 02:04 is completely structured around the different breakfasts The increasingly awkward family dinners with Hank and Marie Jesse„s drug addiction and his fondness for funyons Lydia and her (eventually fatal) tea habit – what does the way she first orders hot water tell us about her? 4
  5. 5. Examples of food-related paratexts for Breaking Bad (because: there are so many of them) Los Pollos Hermanos merchandize and meth candy Meme about Flynn„s love for breakfast food. (He did have to eat a lot of it). Puns about Walt and Jesse being cooks („kiss the cook“) #AwkwardGuacamole Blue meth donuts, increased table-side guacamole sales etc. Heisen-Brr-g Crunch 5
  6. 6. The same goes for Parks and Reacreation
  7. 7. Examples of food-related paratexts for Parks and Rec (really, there is more)
  8. 8. My point is: food and appetite is probably just as prominent as semiotic resources in many other TV shows. And if food is prominent in so many (para)texts, there is understanding to gain by making it prominent in some of our studies as well. And also: it‟s fun. 8
