"So flash forward to today: the lovely people who own that house where we shoot the exteriors, they will have, from time to time, someone who will take pictures in front of the White house. They get the address from somewhere. Several people have come with pizzas and they ask if they can put this pizza up to take pictures? And they say, "Go ahead." They're very nice people."

OK that's awesome.

"I'm the one who knocks."

That has to be my favorite line of the show.

Don't read the article. There are definitely spoilers of the type that are much better to discover when watching.

I was really lucky in that I had heard about this show for years, but I managed to actually avoid all kinds of spoilers for it, so when I watched and caught up this past week, I got the full impact of it.

It's really hard to look up information without getting spoiled.

My favorite:

Stay out of my territory.

Great song to go along with it.

"Funyuns are awesome, Yo."

Season 3, Episode 12 "Half Measures". Jesse is gonna take out the guys who killed the kid. A great scene and only one line, one word of dialog is spoken, by Walt: "Run."


How the hell they can leave this excellent scene off stuns me.

Yeah, I kind of figured that - I got to the point where the article starts talking about Season 3, and I stopped there. I'm *just* at the point where Tuco's scary twin cousins are... taken care of. I HATED those guys! They freaked me out! I was totally creeped out when cousin no-legs saw Walt and tried to get at him... *shivers*... reminded me of "Bob" from Twin Peaks.

When your show is an embarrassment of riches, something is going to get left out. You could, quite literally, draw two scenes from each episode and call them "the best."

This show has been flawless.

Absolutely. This is Emmy reel material. Hopefully he can still qualify for the fourth season (the airdates caused the show to be ineligible for nomination last year). I hope Kyle Chandler sent a thank you card.

We were actually talking about that very scene at work today, and that's my feeling too. One of the best shot scenes ever. It tells so much beyond just what's going on in the narrative. Too bad this clip skips the pull out at the end.

Amazing stuff.

The whole "you're building a robot?" exchange between Walt and Jessie is certainly one of the funniest in the show.

I started watching Breaking Bad once it had already completed a few seasons. I heard here and from somewhere else that it was a great show, but keep in mind that some of these people are telling me Sons of Anarchy and Mad Men are great shows too.

Well, I have to say, Breaking Bad has been the only show where I have been completely involved and engaged with whatever is happening, and there have been some definitely chilling moments as Walter descends (or ascends) into his amorality. Impressive, stylish, wonderfully written and directed.

I'm just guessing people who recommend this show while talking about Sons of Anarchy being great simply miss the nuances and go with the "hey it's cool I'm watching a show about a guy who makes meth" factor.

The best moment in the series was the very slight smile Walter gets on his face after the "stay out of my territory" line. He understands that his reputation is starting to insulate him from not only thugs, but his former life as a weenie high school teacher as well.

My favorite thing about the show, is watching Walt begin to think he's a bad man, and then get slapped down repeatedly. Every time he starts to think he's the big bad wolf, something horrible happens, and it always scales up. Right now, he essentially thinks he's the biggest and baddest wolf there is. I suspect the hand of god is going to slap him down pretty hard by the end of this season.

Yeah, exactly. The "badass" scenes like "stay out of my territory" and "I am the one who knocks" are actually scenes where Walt is all bluster and attitude with nothing to back it up. He's "won" so far, due to being very smart, not tough. And also being very lucky. That luck's about to run out.

God. That scene an episode or two from the season finale, where Walt is sitting in the backyard, trying to think of a plan, spinning his gun on the table? It points at the plant, and he stops for a moment, and you think he's just going "a plant? That's silly."

Wow.

I got my mom and stepdad (around age 60) into Breaking Bad and they love it.

What's funny is that they can't explain it to their friends. At all.

Friends always go, "it's about someone who makes meth? How awful! How can you watch that!" It's as if fictional TV no longer exists to these people. Their first assumption is always that it's a reality show or something.

The first season of Sons of Anarchy sucked. The second still sucked. The third, however, was decent. I wouldn't call it a great show, but it's not awful. It's certainly not on the same level as Breaking Bad.

I'm sure they know it's fiction. Unfortunately, some people can't let a moment pass without reminding everyone how morally superior they are. This knows no age boundaries.

Their argument always confuses me for some reason, because you can apply that to any work of fiction that features less-than-respectable protagonists.

"The Godfather is about an organized crime family? How can you watch that?!", etc.


eddiesocket: That luck's about to run out.


And I believe that's aaaaaaaaaall about what Season 5's about.

And the hell of it is, Walt didn't always used to be that way.

He went from "I have to look out for my family" to "STAY OUT OF MY TERRITORY I'M GOING TO BE TOP DOG I WILL KILL ALL WHO OPPOSE ME WRAAAAAAAAAAAA."

Like you said, I have a hunch that all that pride is gonna come back to bite him on the tuchus this season.

From a performance level, from a symbolic level, from every possible level, that freakout scene is the stuff of legends. That laugh is the sound of Walt dying and Heisenberg taking over.

No, I have to say it was awful. Two seasons (debut seasons, no less) of suckitude were enough to ensure I never thought about the show again. Besides Ron Perlman and Katey Segal, the acting is shiatty, the scripts are shiatty, the music is shiatty, and even some of the episodes had shiatty direction. Just an all-around bad show that has stuck around based solely on its one sentence premise.
