Boston Bomber
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was a big fan of "Breaking Bad" ... praising the show for teaching him how to dispose of corpses.

Since his capture Friday ... a lot of information is surfacing about the 19-year-old Chechan college student who helped mastermind a deadly attack on the Boston Marathon and led police on a massive manhunt.

Turns out Dzhokhar was a fan of violent TV shows ... in particular "Game of Thrones" and "Breaking Bad."

He tweeted earlier this year ... "Breaking Bad taught me how to dispose of a corpse."

As TMZ previously reported, his 26-year-old brother Tamerlan -- who was killed by cops during the manhunt -- was deep into hip hop.

Dzhokhar remains in police custody, in serious condition and unable to speak.

There isn't anything you can learn from Breaking Bad, you can't learn from the internet. Most folks don't look at people on television disposing of bodies and decide it's a good idea. So he likes Breaking Bad, who gives a flying fig, so do a million people who don't use it a guide book on how to be a criminal.

Good thing he wasn't a big fan of that Showtime series "Dexter" then he'd really know how to get rid of dead bodies after you kill them. At least Dexter only kills other serial killers. He's like a killer mongoose who only kills cobras and other poisonous snakes.

Let's face it, Hollywood does influence SOME types of people to do totally insane things. Thankfully, it's only a very small number of people who try to act out what they see on TV and the movies. The world would be a total madhouse if they did.

Seriously, TMZ???

Most teenagers watch shows like GoT and Breaking Bad, and listens to hip hop.

"Correlation does not equal causation" ... take that to heart, TMZ.

"Breaking Bad taught me how to dispose of a corpse." ... what cue did he take from this w.r.t. the bombings or shoot-outs?

Um...sorry to point this out but he didn't dispose of any. They left them laying all over the street, so what was the point of this article?

What an honour for the American taxpayer to pay this POS's ten years here, his current medical expenses, and both sides of the legal wrangling which go on effing endlessly. The only light is his parents left America and he killed his own brother.

Oh, give me a break. I'm a huge fan of Breaking Bad, so I could imagine (in jest) saying it taught me how to dispose of a corpse. It's pretty irresponsible (and hack reporting) for TMZ to say this guy was "taking cues" from BB. What point does that serve other than to falsely accuse a television show of encouraging mass murder. (Absolutely nothing about either BB or Game of Thrones has any similarity to what happened.)

All I need to know about this coward is the filmage of him putting a bomb next to an eight year old child. I only wish he was suffering more intensely and longer. There needs to be a sign in front of his eyes stating, "You murdered your BROTHER".
