"He has actual hobos living there"

I had a friend email me this morning saying he thought last night's episode of Breaking Bad was pretty "meh." I couldn't disagree more- there were so many richly-layered conversations between key characters, revealing their current mental state and motivations, that I felt made it as good an episode as we've had this for the season premiere and it's ruthless bloodshed, of course. And it's not like this episode didn't have a little violence for the folks who watch it for that reason alone. What do you think about last night's episode- thumbs up or meh? What scene really stuck out to you?

Season 4, Episode 4: "Bullet Points"

Also, how perfect a dessert has the new season of Curb been to the Sunday night main course of Breaking Bad? I didn't even know they were bringing that show back, and yet I think this has been the best season in a long time.

Pretty meh? Are you kidding me? That episode had everything and every character in it, all of whom had pretty crucial stuff going on. Next week will be explosive for sure. I wonder how Jesse is gonna weasel his way out of his current predicament, or if he's a goner.

The look on Walt's face when he threw up his hands and said "you got me" was priceless.

Lyle Lanley said...

Good call, VF. As well as he played it off for Hank's benefit, you could still see a bit of fear in his eyes.

Also priceless: the homemade Gail music video

Also, I loved Jesse grabbing the crack whore and carting her upstairs to take her from behind... in a game of fake Super Mario Kart.

Jesse's house was really becoming an uncomfortable crack house. Glad Mike the Cleaner came in and regulated some shit.

Also, REALLY creepy how the camera constantly follows Jesse in the lab.

The music video made me miss Gail even more.

Jesse's house reminds me of when I lived on Corto in college. We didn't have a system like his, though.

Bryan Cranston is awesome, and as Sir Wesley once put it "he could act his way out of a box."

He could. You could make love to that man's acting abilities.
