Face it, if you could buy an off-brand version of Breaking Bad or Friends at the pharmacy, you totally would.
This series of three DVDs produced for the Walgreens chain of pharmacies between 2000 and 2002 may be a transparent rip-off of Friends, but it's also one of the most bizarre train wrecks you'll ever witness. It's fascinating to see how, as the show goes on, the cast and crew grow visibly listless and demoralized. By the second season, the cast members — most especially a dead-eyed Melissa Glenn — mumble through their lines in a halting monotone as if under duress. The third season is just flat-out unprofessional, with entire scenes shot out of focus, and the penultimate episode presented more or less as a radio play as the camera operators forgot to take off their lens caps.

Winn-Dixie should be ashamed for making and selling this totally incompetent rip-off of AMC's acclaimed Breaking Bad. It's bad enough that it looks like shaky Flip video footage of a bunch of cosplayers with zero acting experience fumbling through their lines, but it's worse in that the show shamelessly glorifies its unhinged meth-peddling lead character, Glenn Grey, without showing any consequences at all for his despicable actions.
