Breaking Bad - 08/27/13 08:59 AM

5 episodes left. Wow! This has got to be one of the best written, directed & acted show. While I will miss it terribly when it's over, at least it didn't wear out it's welcome.

Once the last episode airs, I am going to watch the whole thing over again. They packed so much into 5 seasons!

AMC has had a show come on afterwards called Talking Bad that is great. A live show with guests (actors on the show, Vince Gilligan was on 1st show, other actors) and it's cool to see how this show affects so many people.

The Walking Dead also has the same called The Talking Dead. laugh

I watched Talking Bad for the first time this past Sunday. Samual L Jackson is crazy!!!


At first I was a little confused by the first 15 minutes of the first episode this season. Took me awhile to figure out the show was going backwards.

I had a friend get me hooked on this , this summer. I purchased all of them. I watched them in order so not to be confused.

I will have to say that Walt sure surprised me on last Sundays episode. I sure didnt see that coming.

I think that after the final episode airs it will be impossible to live in that bubble. Like the end of Sapranos, the Super Bowl, the Presidential election ….

I recommend you binge on episodes 1-7 and then join the rest of the world in real time for the finale.

w/e. Since my personal DVR viewing habits don't meet spec here, I'll just opt out of this thread. I'm not even going to argue my reasons, or any suggestions, that would be iSilly.

Carry on.

I did just watch EP1, fantastic. I'm going to try and get my Bro to hurry it up, only because it looks great. If not soon, it's only bit and bytes that we make the choice when to watch, or what news to read, eh?

Re: Breaking Bad - 08/28/13 12:27 AM

I was thinking about those who hadn't watched it. I thought what I said ddnt reveal much if anything , those who did see it would have understood.

I hadn't seen a single episode of any of the five years until I watched the I rest episode of this years. Then I went back and got all years and watched them in order.

One after noon and evening I think I watched 8 episodes in a row. I was certainly addicted.

That said, I do think that the Sopranos is a more rounded and better written show. No over the top mass killings like there were in Breaking and there were several themes going on.

The one episode of Breaking was so boring. I'm talking about the one with the "Fly " . They shouldn't have aired it IMHO.

Still series shows how a respected gentile man turned into a monster.or was he a monster from the beginning? Hmmm

That whole scene was strange

im speaking about the gunfight. Hank and Gomez didnt take cover very quickly . I just took that as just Hollywood antics. I didn't consider it was part of the plot. I was thinking that the uncle decided he dint need those rogue DEA agents.

It's hard to think of everyone just backing off from that fight. Someone is going down.

Click to reveal..
ive got to watch it again, and will, to see if others are right. In that Skyler understood what he was doing and gave him verbal clues that she did.

Walter knew the police were their listening, so made sure he projected a great her and that she only reluctantly supported him for the family's sake. He made sure everyone knew everything he did was on his nickel alone.

Re: Breaking Bad - 09/17/13 04:44 AM

My friend and I let 2 episodes build up and then watch them in one sitting every two weeks, so I have been careful to stay away from here. I now believe I am caught up. 2 episodes left

Click to reveal..
Is there really a way to go from here? Hank is dead. Everybody who didn't know about Walt and Skylar knows. I guess there is the subplot about what's going to happen to Jesse. Is Walt going to save him? I doubt it, he was happy to have him killed right there. And he gave the baby back. What else is there? This could have easily been the last episode and I wouldn't have been suprised. Having said that, I have no doubt the writers have some great drama left in store.

One other thing, I am a little confused as to why Walt seemed so desperate to save Hank, but revealed Jesse under the car, and was instantly ready to let him be killed. He called Jesse family only a little earlier in the same episode but then forgot about all that. I almost laugh at myself for being so sucked up in this. blush


I would love to be a fly on the wall when the writers of this show get together and start throwing ideas around.

Re: Breaking Bad - 09/17/13 07:55 AM

Click to reveal..

Well, in the first episode of this season, it showed Walt at a diner with a full beard and hair, so obviously there are things left unsettled:
1) the skinhead uncle took $70 million of Walt's money. Do you think he's going to let that go?

2) While Walt called Jesse "family", in fact, Walt was only trying to get Jesse to not act the way he was. (throwing money out the window of car; his whole attitude). All that was just so that Walt didn't have to worry about Jesse. Once Walt saw Jesse with Hank, he knew that it was over with Jesse, that's why he called him a rat and pointed him out. That's the Heisenberg part of him. He leaves nothing.

3) Jesse saw the photo of the girl and Brock at the end there. is that a threat towards him to keep cooking?

4) I believe Walt didn't want Hank killed because he was family. That was Walt. But Heisenberg didn't care. The dual personality of Walt is really good acting IMO.

I remember those scenes from the first episode of this season, but in many way for me personally the show as it was is over even with a few strings left. Again, I will still watch the two remaining with bated breath

1. Maybe the Heisenberg in Walt will go after that money now that you mention it.

2. You're right, Walt did say to those guys that Jesse "is not a rat" very emphatically, when he did turn out to be one and the Heisenberg came through, you got me there.

3. Yep, that picture is there to bait him into continue cooking just in case his own life or torture isn't enough to keep Jesse going. Another genius, if sick, plot twist.

Walt is gone. Seems only Heisenberg remains. What a sad episode … everyone suffered … except for the nazis.

I can't figure out wtf Jack & Todd and his gang of Nazi need to cook any more because they have $70M cash. Maybe Todd has a little bit of an inferiority complex with Jesse or maybe he's just trying to impress Lydia. That will be that scarey dude's undoing.

Anyway, they all need to die soon enough. If Walt doesn't get them with his tank-busting gun, then Jesse seems likely to take someone out with a little "lab accident" chemistry. yeah, the ricin will probably take out a few nazis.

Somehow, someway, I want to see a dying Walt in a boat drifting into the sunset like all those paintings he noticed. Jesse needs redemption and maybe Walt will free him, I still have a feeling that Saul and his boys kept a barrel or two of cash for themselves when they moved it from the storage locker.

]Lots of predictions from Gary. I like it.

Click to reveal..
someone mentioned above that the whole comversation with skylar at the end of the last episode was Walt channeling his inner Heisenberg to make Skylar
look like a controlled victim. I was so into the drama I didn't catch any of that. Duh.

Yeah Todd is only in it for self pride and to impress Lydia, they set that all up. Again good writing.

Again Mr B is bothered with the logistics smile. I noticed that hank and his buddy should've taken cover but it was too guy wrenching of a scene to let it bother me much.

As I've said before Saul is by far the least digestible plot element for me. Always providing comic relief and a magic solution an coming out unscathed and unfazed most every time. Even his pummeling was later made a joke and the questioning and tricking of his bodyguard was largely a moment of levity. And I still like the guy anyway. smile

Watching it again andi noticed a detail problem with the pickup Walt bought from the Indian who lived in the deserts. During walts leavin his house while pushing Skylers car out, I noticed it had "slicks" on the rear. I don't think an old Indiam living in desert would have slicks

Course, they wanted the tires to spin, I think. I need to go back to see if they had them on all the time or just that scene

Who cares? I think it's interesting. It deals with procedures in making the scene. Like when cars collide, to make one car fly through the air, sometimes even spiraling upside down. It's crazy. Or cars crashing through a building moving through unscathed.

I like noticing them.

But then, I've watched LOTR and wondered how the archer never ran out of arrows.

To movies credit, anymore. They seem to count their shots more often. A lot of the time we don't see a shooter shoot 15 times with a revolver. But they still have shooters firing ten seconds or so using a ak-47 with a 30 round magazine firing 600 r/m on full auto.

Makes for better carnage, I suppose.

Click to reveal..
paying particular attention to Skylers reaction to Walt. I now believe that that she understood that Walt was trying to get her off the hook with Feds.

I also think Walt isn't finished with the skin heads who stole the money. Also, he wants payback for Hank. I think he isn't finished with his family even though Flynn turned against him.

As for Jessie , he is being threatened by Todd with his girl friend and her boy. Not sure if Walt will help him as he was pretty mad that Jessie plotted against him with Hank.

Personally, I want Marie to get it but in reality Walt is a major scumbag as is Skyler and deserve to get it.

I didn't watch it again, but when I remembered the scene, after reading here, I realized from the look on Skylar's face that she gets what he was doing. Because he never talks to her like that. Which also means he knows she lied to him about the police listening in.

Re: Breaking Bad - 09/17/13 10:42 PM

Kinda knew that when you hire a gang of Aryan Brotherhood nazi-types …. things won't end well.

Marie is living on borrowed time. Jesse told Todd he made the tapes at Hank's house and that's where all the equipment is. They'll want to go get the tapes before the Feds do. Please, please don't let Flynn, Holly and Skylar come stay with Marie right now….

Many loose ends are being revealed … a nazi trip to Hank's house may tell us if Hank's weird post-trauma mineral collecting means something. Or maybe not.

Walt returned for a moment of clarity when Holly cried for her mother. That's what prompted him to make the call and let the police know that Skylar was threatened & abused. About a third of the way into the call you could see on her face that she understood what Walt was doing. The acting in that scene is as good as it gets.

So Walt called Saul's guy to make himself disappear …. taking the damn $11M barrel with him.

I am into caps or hats. My favorite are the cabbie or newsboy types worn commonly up to the 40's. I mentioned to a friend that I needed a new hat to add to my closet. She suggested getting the type worn by Heisenberg which is a pork pie style. I looked them up and found they are now a hot item( of course)

On further thinking about getting one I concluded that as much as I like the show, Heisenberg is not a person with which I want to be ascociated . He really is a monster. So I'm going to lay off advertising his image.

Yeah, I thought the series would be entertaining but it became pretty depressing and dark all of a sudden. However, that's one of those dark things you want to watch because they actually teach you something important. Brilliant series, probably one of the best ones in the last several years.

Great ending to a great series. Sucks that it is over, but they didn't wear it out like dexter.

Agree, they ended it with true BB style. Much sadness in saying goodbye, it's been a hell of a ride.

Agree. I can say that the way they ended it really held no surprises for me. And that's great AFAIC.

Walt dies in a meth lab not from cancer. He has his goodbye with Skyler. He doesn't because he can't patch up things with Junior. Jesse lives. Nazis die by walts hand. Junior will get some of the money. Well maybe


So great ending.

Now we can turn our attention to Homeland and that BatSh!tCrazy woman

Walt's death in the lab was appropriate. He died on his own terms, not nature's, and not begging and bargaining (like Jack). But it wasn't something transcendent. Almost with acceptance of his fate and guilt he asked Jesse to end it for him. But Jesse was having none of that.

As an example, Gus's death was fitting for the character.

And Breaking Bad knows how to do this. Mike's death was one of the best ever in TV or film. Mike, sitting on the riverbank bank bleeding to death …. with a beautiful golden sunset to bring him to his end … but true to Mike's character, it's "Walt, shut the f*ck up and let me die in peace."

It did indeed get even darker and sadder. I read some of the reaction sites for the first time. One mentioned a small loose end that Lydia does have a young daughter that was not mentioned again. I am sure she'll have a better life than Pinkman's ex-girlfriend's boy but anyway. I agree, not the best episode of the bunch, but still satisfying.

I think this was as good as any of them. I just watched it again. Better than a lot of them

A couple things not quite right with the final.
Click to reveal..
I realize that they had to devise something that might be feasible to kill all the Nazis so they come up with this remote control contraption. are we really expected that he could rig a device that would just happen to catch all the bad guys although I saw two boxes of 200 rounds in the trunk. The weapon will fire about 600 rpm . I timed the fire and it fired exactly 40 seconds which is an out right. But still?

Also, in the scene with Gretchen and Elliot, he threatens them with assassins who are to determine if they give Junior 9 million dollars after he dies. Wouldn't one think, rightly, that instead of just taking the $200,000 Walt paid them that after he left, they would just kill the Schartzs and take the 9 mill?

Also, I thought it flakey, that Jack would care if Walt thought Jesse was his partner. He was going to kill him anyway.

Seriously, you're counting bullets?? laugh The plot weakness in that segment is that the nazis allowed Walt to drive into their complex without checking the trunk of his car.

There were no assasins. Just Skinny Pete and Badger with laser pointers who got paid $10K each that night. It was a ruse. But it worked to scare the Schwartzes into setting up the trust fund for Walt Jr. within 10 months

Hubris. Kind of the same thing that let Walt deviate from his plan to net only $700K that became his empire-building $90M. Jack had too much ego to even let a man die thinking he was a lying dick. It was Jack's way of saying "say my name" except Walt ended up putting a bullet in his head instead. And Walt never thought twice about the hidden money Jack was bargaining for his life.

Yes, about Skinny Pete and Badjer

Click to reveal..
they were shining hand held lasers. What I meant was that IF the Swartzs believed there were truly assessins there watch if they were going to give the loot to Junior they would figure that they would just come in, kill them, and take it all, not settle for the Measly $200,00.

And, no, I did not count bullets, I counted boxes of rounds. Two boxes of 200 rounds each in the trunk . I did time the firing at 40 seconds which is about perfect of a M60 which fires 600 rpm firing 400 rounds.
