A friend of mine is married to an anthropologist. She has a book on the coffee tabled titled How to Hide the Body. He thinks it's hysterical, I tell him not to piss her off.

Can someone explain the breakfast jokes I keep seeing everywhere? I've watched this show from day one but I must've missed something.

I'm pretty sure the first episode featured Veggie bacon, but beyond that I cannot recall.

Eh, my first guess is that if you want to get away with murder you don't put a book about how to get away with it on your coffee table.

Junior's interaction with his parents always seems to be over breakfast and he's always eating cereal, pancakes, waffles etc. Watch the scenes in season 1-4, I think with RJ Mitte, Anna Gunn, and Cranston and you will see almost 2/3 are over breakfast before school.

The final episode could be a musical where the entire remaining cast dresses up as clowns for all I know; while how the show ends will certainly help dictate just how many people will consider it the best TV drama ever, I think it's already cemented itself as easily one of the best written TV shows of any genre. A stunning level of detail, craft, and despite various high-wire acts with the storylines, a pretty impressive respect for realism.

This, this and farking this. I rewatched all the seasons again right before the final season and I am amazed at how much little shiat I missed. Pay attention to minor details, they come back later.

Best show ever. I havent watched TV shows in 6 years this is the first one that got me hooked. I'm moving on to Sons of Anarchy now. I heard that show is pretty good.

Actually I thought a large part of it was that they're at breakfast, but no one is ever seen eating breakfast.  We either catch them just after, or there's food on the table, but no one's hungry (like Walt in the Denny's at the beginning of the fifth season)

End it like all the 90s sitcoms series finale where it's done in front of a live studio audience, and the announcer calls each actor out to the stage one at a time for them to bow.

Or end it like snl where they all just stand in front of the camera thanking everyone.

Come to think of it, you're right but Jesse eats a lot... At Dennys after what happens to Victor, at the White house in s05 ("these green beans are CHOICE"), when he's with Mike and he offers him his food...

I admit it has been a while since I have seen the episodes, but I thought Walt Jr was able to eat because he was unaware of the burdens carried by his parents. I think he wouldn't eat when he was Finn because his parents were fighting and near divorce.

I do believe you are correct about Skylar and Walt thouh, they are never seen eating, unlike Jessie.
 
2013-08-22 02:15:23 PM
So that is how they get such good writers for the show.  They actually hired people to write who can read books 'n stuff.  I think other shows should take note.
 
2013-08-22 02:19:52 PM
I am kind of surprised Walt Jr. hasn't made any appearances this season yet, especially since Walt and Skylar are trying to have a normal life now... or was trying.

Good TV shows like this would finally destroy reality TV, problem is that reality TV is cheap to make and people flock to it like sheep. It's people like my girlfriend who prefer Duck Dynasty to Breaking bad that makes me want to repeat the bathtub scene.

Oh, not disagreeing that he's kind of a waste of air time, but since he exists in that show and the family is trying to go back to a normal life and Walt no longer cooking, you'd think he's show up at least.

I wonder if Walt was delusion when he memorizes the coordinates and got them wrong.  Does anyone have a screenshot of the geocaches coordinates on his GPS vs the numbers on the lottery ticket and see if they matched up?

/or Skylar, being the good wife she is, checks the ticket on the fridge, sees its a loser & tosses it out

I'm about 3/4 through season 3 right now and it's taking all of my wife's willpower to not watch episodes while I'm at work and she's home with our baby. It's really engrossing and I can't wait to see where it goes, even though I've seen a few little spoilers here and there.

/"Fly" was a fairly poor episode and I kind of wish I had skipped it and watched the one after it last night...

The good news is that Fly was probably the worst episode of the series, but even then it wasn't bad, just less awesome than what the rest have achieved.

I've seen it appear on top Breaking Bad episode lists.

From the perspective that they decided to stop and breathe for a second and let Walt and Jesse process recent events, sure, it's a good episode. But the show has produced much better episodes, I think.

The 'Fly' debate is very fascinating to me. When I watched it, my heart damn near beat out of my chest when Walter was on the verge of telling Jesse about Jane, visually coupled to the ladder teetering on its edge...

I understand it doesn't have the fast-paced scenes like the train heist, or the magnet, or even the RV/Hank, but it certainly was something to behold, especially once I realized they really were going to spend an hour in the lab (I'd never been aware of 'bottle episodes' before that).

I agree very much.  BB doesn't have any bad, unwatchable episodes.  Fly is a change of pace and it's introspection is good.  When I saw it for the first time, I don't think I had that same reaction.  I was moreso waiting for Walt to finally pass out so Jesse could cook.
 
2013-08-22 03:31:28 PM
I really love breakfast.
 
2013-08-22 03:43:22 PM
Fly wasn't as fast paced as other episodes but it did show the beginning of Walt's paranoia and downward spiral of psychosis.

Also the part when Walt is walking out of the lab and ends uo slamming the door on Jesse while yelling. That was perhaps the first time we see Scarface come out in his personality.

Good Lord, yes.  I cannot understand the critical accolades that show gets.  Season Two was watchable, though not great.  Seasons 1, 3, and 4 were complete shiat.  The characters didn't behave like real people at all.  It's like a soap opera with motorcycles.
 
2013-08-22 03:50:44 PM
Yeah... If I had watched Fly and then another episode after, I probably wouldn't have been nearly as critical. Since that was the last episode we watched before going to bed, it left me wanting for another one more than usual.

whizbangthedirtfarmer: It's like a soap opera with motorcycles.


Some of my favourite shows have degenerated into soap opera, which is when I stopped watching.

Does anyone really care about Angel and LaGuerta's romance on Dexter? Deb's dating life / love life? They add nothing to the actual storyline of a serial killer living among the normals.

Somewhere mid-way through Six Feet Under I asked "Do they still even OWN a funeral home?"  Seemed that the relationships and breakups took over every episode's plots.

S.O.A is about the same and getting worse.

Breaking Bad, OZ and The Sopranos are three shows that managed to avoid that trap.

(assuming, of course, that Walt Jr's blossoming relationship with Louis doesn't take up a lot of screen time in the last five BB episodes)

There's hope. I finally got my wife to watch an episode of this show and she's been power watching for a week now when she has time. When she finally got to the Better Call Saul I remember her saying "I like Saul but damn he's such a farking douche, man this is well written"

She jokes now when its time to make dinner, she'll turn to me and ask

"Wanna cook?"

My wife is loving the final season of Dexter...

I think it's one of the most painful hours of TV I endure every week for the sake of my marriage. The writing is so heavy handed that there are 0 surprises you don't see coming from miles away. The whole relationshipiness of it is killing me. I mean the premise of a serial killer who kills serial killers while living among the normies was never that great of a premise to begin with. But at least the first couple seasons tied it all together in some interesting ways.

Now they've gone full retard and I can barely tolerate it.
