Breaking Bad > Breaking Bad Review: Down the Toilet > Comments Page 2
That statistic about "5% of people use meth in the Czech Republic" sounded absurd to me, so I Googled a bit for research on this. The tables said E. Europe meth use is at .5%. Makes more sense. One out of 200 (still pretty high) but 5% is one out of twenty!
Amazing season! I still think that Jesse is gonna ultimately bring Walt down...even with Hank's new revelation, somehow Jesse has to find out about Walt poisoning Brock and his invovlement in Jane's death. And when he does...there'll be no stopping him!
it wasnt meant to be long, its shit going bad, with people that are not fit for this line of business. Walt may think he is the boss, but mike was right. When distribution comes to the picture, walt doesnt no shit about this business, he isnt cut out for it and he panicks easy. Through the bettr part of the show he keeps on taking drastic measures to guard people that he seems to have all but relinquished now. He is going to die, and mark my words; Skylar White is going to put him down. Walt will surely completely loose it and will set his targets on Hank or the DEA, bring heat on his family. Its already hard to say who he cares for and who he doesnt. Jesse was never meant to do this, he was just a part timer; and now he is scarred...for the rest of his life. I always felt that with the kind of intelligence that Hank has, he would have found out about Walt in the second or third season; keeping him in the dark seemed like a weak ploy.However, this is how it was supposed to be, no big s
There are several things about "Breaking Bad" that bother me right now: (1) the show is ending arbitrarily; there is an understanable impulse to avoid "jumping the shark," but the killings of Gus Fring and Mike indicate to me that the train is on a rigid, thoughtless schedue that must be kept,even though there are many other stories to be told; (2) Saul Goodman is a major neglected resource; (3) some way must be found to bring Jesse back into the picture; the new, responsible Jesse is a bore; is he really SHOCKED that the drug business involves occasional killings? (4) Walter White seems unnesassarily confused and indecisive; since when does he really CARE about the feelings of Skyler, a woman who said that she was counting the days until his cancer came back; (5) I would think that a quick, dangerous affair with Lydia was called for, not because either wants love, but because they are both gigantic egos seeking momentary fulfillment. What is Walt going to tell Hank about the book and
My only complaint is the show seems a little rushed at this point. One of the things I've been excited to see is the realization of Walt as a king pin, before his inevitable fall. We basically got one (albeit lovely) montage of the empire he built before the show was forced to move on with the confrontation with Hank. It feels like they are squeezing two full season into one long one, which is a shame.
For some reason it still came as a bit of a surprise to me: Probably because after four and a half seasons, I'd gotten completely conditioned to expect that Hank would always get close, but never quite figure it out.
it's Czech Republic, and not Czech Republican - dummy.
the backing song at the end of the show- when they were all sitting around at the pool, was Squeeze's "Up The Junction"- which is a song about domestic bliss gone bad.
The ricen(whatever its called) that he keeps tucking away in the outlet. that is what he will use on himself, after the huge automatic fails to do whatever he bought it for.
Matt: thanks for clearing that up about the dispenser. I had forgotten Walt's surprise at seeing it again. So we really don't know if the cancer's back - he takes it as an omen that it might be. (What crazy-ass hospital wouldn't have budgeted the money to replace it after all this time?)
It's funny: all throughout the series,there all kinds of little clues that *just* seemed to have eluded Hank's observation, only by virtue of his perception of Walter. The fact that the quality of the meth was such that it would take a chemist to have cooked it stands out (first season) as the first of many. And now we come down with the "W.W.W." which serves as the flashpoint for what we know will become a fiery descent for Walter. Amazing stuff.
Only breaking bad could make something i saw coming a mile away seem interesting.
Although it pisses me off i have to wait a year for only 8 episodes.
@Govale: That actually took place on the episode "4 Days Out." Yes, Walk did punch the dispenser, but in the past.
When Walt left the bathroom in the clinic after his MRI, the camera showed a metal paper towel dispenser that looked like it had been punched and dented in frustration. I think it means that Walt's cancer is back, and he knows it. . Explains why he finally gave Jesse the money and made peace with Skylar. Can't think of any other reason.
Or was it the MRI? Will we find out Walt's cancer is back?
BTW, FX also has some of the best shows on TV, too. Justified is my current favorite. Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story. But on AMC, I also very much enjoy Breaking Bad.
It should be "The depths to which Walt had sunk" rather than "The depth to which Walt had sank."
Is it just me, or has AMC figured out how to perfect it's tv shows? Literally every show on AMC right now is so far beyond anything else on tv. The breaking bad season 5 finale......perfect.
The first half of the season was great but it looks like the second half is gonna be some of the best TV EVEr based on tonights literal holy shit ending
