As we promised in “The Ones Who Knock” Kickstarter, I will be doing weekly recaps here for each episode of Breaking Bad. For those of you unfamiliar with my recapping style, it’s less of a straightforward plot summary and more a distillation of the most interesting elements of each week’s episode.  The recaps will spoil everything up through the current episode (S5E11 “Confessions”), but won’t spoil any future episodes or even scenes from the “Next Time” segment of the show.  There will, however, be some light speculation and straight-up crackpot theories.  No theory or speculation is based on foreknowledge of the show.  So hold on to your pork pie hats, because here we go.

Here is a recap: At Comic-Con, Human Giant comedian Paul Scheer made an appearance during the Q&A of the Lost panel, announcing his new website DamonCarltonAndAPolarBear.com where he would be featuring Lost-inspired artwork. Earlier this week, we recieved a very strange FEDEX’ed letter from Paul, declaring his decision to become the Picasso of Pop Art, and devote his life to making Lost-inspired paintings. The website features a privacy policy from ABC, the network that airs Lost, which leads us to believe this is a viral marketing campaign for the tv show.


This morning I received an e-mail from Paul:

Hey Pete, I don’t know if you have been follow the drama of the last few days on my Lost blog but I’ve been being harassed by this weird art dealer. I plan on trying to go to ABC today and get some answers,video will be coming soon! -P

Paul’s e-mail was quickly followed by a real-life FedEx letter, which I had to sign for, from Ronie Midfew Arts, declaring that “Mr. Scheer is creating this LOST-inspired artwork without” … “authorization.” You can check out the full legal letter after the jump. The website for Ronie Midfew Arts only features the cryptic message “15 Will be lost  The 16th Will be Found”. More after the jump.

Human Giant comedian Paul Scheer made a surprise appearance during the question and answer session of the Lost panel at Comic-Con, unveiling of a painting featuring Lost showrunners Damon Lindeloff and Carlton Cuse hugging a polar bear and giving a thumbs up. Scheer told everyone they should check out the rest of his masterpieces during the month ahead at DamonCarltonAndAPolarBear.com. You can watch a clip of his appearance embedded after the jump.

At the time we just assumed that it was probably just Paul being funny… but the website exists. Not only does it exist, but I recieved a fedex today, inside was a limited edition giclee of Scheer’s Damon, Carlton and a Polar Bear print, along with a hand written letter from Paul thanking us for the coverage of his new website.

Over the past couple years, I’ve chatted with Paul though e-mail, we’ve met in person, he’s even made an appearance on the /Filmcast. When I saw him at Comic-Con and mentioned his appearance at the Lost panel, he began acting a bit strange. It seems odd to me that Paul would send me a hand written letter when he could have just picked up the phone and called. His decision to become the Picasso of Pop Art, and devote his life to making Lost-inspired paintings seems like something out of a comedy sketch. But this isn’t a comedy sketch — it’s real life! Something is up. I’m not sure what is going on, but something is going on. If you’re a fan of Lost, you should pay close attention to DamonCarltonAndAPolarBear.com. The privacy policy on the bottom of the site redirects to ABC’s privacy policy… hmmmmm….

You can read Paul’s hand-written letter and watch a video of his appearance at Comic-Con, after the jump.
