How Breaking Bad was influenced by The Shining

“At the beginning of season three’s ‘Sunset,’ the Salamancas kill a police officer with an axe right to the head. Just before, we hear the officer on his radio. ‘KDK-12 to dispatch,’ he says. KDK-12 should sound familiar, because Wendy says it about fifteen times in The Shining — it’s the call letters for the Overlook Hotel.”

I love stuff like this.
