Yeah, that framed shot of Walter laughing in the basement, as if he was in a casket, symbolizing the death of Walter White and the birth of Heisenberg was chilling and absolutely brilliant.

Give all emmys to Brian Cranston. All the prizes, all of them.

I was lucky enough to start watching it just last year on Netflix so I didn't have to sit through the breaks in the season. Even though I don't watch a lot of TV, it's easily one of the best TV shows I've ever seen. Except when they killed Jane, I was in love with her. I hope Q comes back and takes revenge.

Breaking Bad and AMC in general, prove that you can do dark, adult shows without the need for constant cursing and pointless nudity.

WTF Indeed: Breaking Bad and AMC in general, prove that you can do dark, adult shows without the need for constant cursing and pointless nudity.


You can, but they never hurt, do they? Hooray for pointless nudity!

AMC gets by with sideboob, which is good enough.

If it didn't take two more episode than it should have, *THAT* scene from "Walking Dead" finale would have been a serious contender.

/as well as *THAT scene in the "Boardwalk Empire" finale

I have the sculpture in my living room, back here in Los Angeles. I keep it covered up, because I don't want to scare the neighbors. Maybe at Halloween next year I'll put it up in the window. We have one of those speakeasy-type doors where you can open it up and see who's outside. Next time there's a salesman or something, I'll say "Yes?" through the door, and then just have that face there.

I love this man.

My Season 5 prediction:

Mike comes back from Mexico, finds out what happened. Also finds out that Brock was poisoned by Walt.
Tells this to Jesse and also tells Jesse that Gus had no reason to die. The two of them go into business and conspire to take out Walt. Meanwhile Hank is closing in on Walt and the carnage he left behind from the Lab and the hospital. It will be a race to see who can get to Walt first.

Honestly, the moment where he goes from the sobbing old man to Death incarnate- that was way more awesome than Gus's final shot. Don't get me wrong, Gus's death was cool, but I think you could have just had the DING DING DING moment, cut to outside the home and have the explosion visible there and that would have been enough.

The last 15 minutes of the finale were amazing. The scene of Gus waiting in the car and then walking into the nursing home was a brilliant build up to his demise.

i Suppose they kept Mike alive for a reason, but he was hired hands. If his boss is dead, what's his motivation? Unless, and that is my theory, there is someone above Gus. Remember, he was kept alive by Don Eladio in Mexico because he "knew people." Well, who are these 'people'? Guess we'll find that out

But personally, I can't wait for Hank's play in next season. Deep down, im really rooting for him, for him to uncover the whole thing. That would lead to some really dramatic scenes

I really believe that Hank already knows that Walt is a Meth cook and is just waiting for that one big mistake. Or that Walt will get himself in such deep doo-doo he'll have to beg Hank for his help and reveal who he truly is (I thought that was going to happen towards the end of last season). Jesse will be the next Gus, but I agree that there's probably a large political figure who was helping Gus all along. My guess is its Hanks boss. Remember he has a pic of himself shaking Gus' hand in his office.

HappyHarryHardOn: i Suppose they kept Mike alive for a reason, but he was hired hands. If his boss is dead, what's his motivation?


They made a big deal about how loyal Mike is. He's never liked Walter, and he does like Jesse. I can see him going after Walter on his own. I hope they go more that direction... we don't need a new, bigger bad guy we don't know. I'd rather see the last season be a lot more personal.

Personally, I hope they kill Skylar, maybe halfway through the season or so. One, she's annoying. Two, that would send Walter completely off the rails. 5-10 episodes of totally unhinged, unreserved Walter White rage would be something to behold.

TFA: Wonderful make-up, but there's no way you can take away parts of a person's face without giving them grave medical damage. The make-up on his face was a placeholder.

WTF? I thought these pampered actors were supposed to be dedicated to their craft!

Really? That would be an interesting twist. Except wouldn't Walt being a meth cook put Walt's wife, son, daughter and Hank's wife in danger? So it'd be a bad idea for Hank to let all that go on.

There is a bond between Hank and Walt. I think Hank cares more about Walt than he does Marie. Remember Walt tipped off Hank about Gus' hit on him. Walt didn't have to do that, as he was going to take the "Disappearing option" at that time (Before the plan fell apart).
 
2011-12-18 06:56:50 PM
In my opinion, Hank is the only truly good person that's a regular in the show. He can be an ass and kind of gruff, but he seems a decent human being. I don't think you can say that about any of the other major characters.
 
2011-12-18 07:01:35 PM
I think Hank will find out about Walt, but because Walt's cancer is (I'm assuming) back, Hank will elect not to do anything. The last show will have Walt right back where we started - he's dying of cancer and has no money.
 
2011-12-18 07:37:36 PM
I think the last quarter of the last episode will pull out of a mustard stain on the doctor's tie, and Walter's still sitting there receiving his diagnosis, imagining what could've been. Then, he'll go through chemo, the cancer will kill him slowly, and he'll die.
 
2011-12-18 07:42:54 PM
I kind of hope they kill off Walt Jr somehow. I get sick of hearing him [attempt to] talk. Spit it out, already. I know he's got whatever he's got and that's how those people talk, but for frak's sake it gets annoying sometimes. If he dies I hope he gets shot mid-sentence. They never did address the missing cigarette. Skylar could always smoke that and die. Maybe Mike and Gus were as close as Max and Gus. Something needs to happen to fully Scarface Walter White. He's on the brink now. Just needs a little nudge. The series is worth watching for the character development alone. No other series sans Buffy the Vampire Slayer even comes close to this level of character development.
 
2011-12-18 08:07:41 PM
Somehow I don't really see Mike going after Walt. His loyalty was of the professional, not personal, variety. Mike might work against Walt in some way, but I just don't think he has the motivation or reason to devote himself to it.

Trust me, I don't discount his football mind in the whole equation. A normal mind wouldn't be able to retrain the body how to throw the football. The natural ability to recall along with the work and attention to detail is the most impressive. It seperates him and Brady from the rest.

I still remember Brady beating the Colts in 2001 and wondering why nobody was talking about the guy who was obviously going to take Drew Bledsoe's job.

That innate ability to know where the ball has to go before its even been snapped, when you've seen it, you know it.

Walter's streaks of evil are delicious. I still think of the scene where he tells the punks in the parking lot to "get out of his territory" while DLZ plays in the background. His slight smile as they drove away spoke volumes.

When Gus strolled out of the room I thought "Impossible!":...then the camera panned around and, well, you know. Hector's leg dropping to the floor was the crowning touch. That, and the charred wheelchair.

But how did Walt get the poison to the boy? And how long until the next season?

schubie: I really love Vince Gilligan for confirming that Gus was gay.


See, I still don't think he was gay, exactly. I don't buy the "lovers" thing. If he were gay, he was like the Nikola Tesla style of gay- he's just so heavily invested into his work that relationships can't really get involved in his life. Now, did he love his partner? Certainly. But even that Gus was not a wide eyed idealist- he had already done (presumably) terrible things in Chile- terrible enough that the Mexicans didn't want to kill him.

One website I read says that if you watch the part where Saul's secretary is shredding documents right before she demands money for the door (and saul's phone number), a school lunch schedule is among the documents being shredded.

I think it was the third to last episode, the one where Jesse almost shot Walt, that was probably the most thrilling TV drama episode I've ever seen. Okay, better than most movies too. I believe Stephen King said we can start calling the show an American classic.

I love Hank, probably the most decent person on that show, however... Cranston is running circles around most actors in television today. Possibly all of them.

Just look at the scene where he's talking to Walt Jr. but really talking to Jesse. Or well just watch all of breaking bad.

Give all the prizes to Brian Cranston
