Anybody watching Breaking Bad on AMC? - Page 12

post #166 of 511

I enjoyed the episode, it was a light one except for the ending.

Can someone please make Skyler go away :D

well, as soon as you saw the motorcycle you knew what was going to happen

 

I also thought it was strange that they just started using someone new - and I thought that was going to lead to something.

I agree that whole scene was excellent...Jesse is such a decent guy. Aaron Paul played that scene perfectly. One of my favorite quotes, Walter to Jesse, "I'm not in the money business, I'm in the empire business." Walter is lost...

This is really disappointing me lately, Walter was such an interesting character, who could always find a solution to anything and could fight through anything. I know this is the purpose of the show, but to watch someone slowly turn into a monster (or "break bad") is unsettling. I don't have anyone to "cheer" for now. Jesse is nice and interesting, but he's too much of a pushover. Hank is also interesting, but he's an idiot. I just hope Jesse gets out of Walter's control and sorts his life out.

I'm totally with you on that. In the last "Rolling Stone" they had a great article on "Breaking Bad." In it Vince Gilligan says that his best work is always about transformation. There's a lot of transformation that has taken place so far and I have a feeling that there's more to come. Something tells me that Walter's humanity will return if only for a short time...

My fear is that Walter seems to be choosing the money over his family.  Jesse pointed that out and Walter just blew him off.  For me, that's what always made Walter lovable - and if that is gone, then the show loses the "good guy" status of it's primary protagonist.  The only thing I dislike more than a good guy character going bad is when a bad guy character goes good.  That's "Jumped the shark" territory.

I've got a feeling that Walter and Jesse are going through a role reversal. Walter used to be the "good guy" and Jesse was a dead-beat meth addict, now we're starting to see Jesse become more responsible and Walter become this selfish monster. I hope they make Jesse take a larger role in the show, he's a great character.

I think Walter is much less interesting as a purely manipulative, selfish monster.  Far too predictable.

Yeah, I think that you're right. He was more interesting when he was conflicted about being bad for an ultimate good...

agreed

I'm surprised there is no "Revenge" series topic on Head-fi biggrin.gif

I watch this show religiously. Although Walt may be becoming a bit of a gangster, I like that he bought his kid the Charger.

That was nice...even though Junior can't live with him anymore. Maybe he should buy Skylar a BMW or something! Another episode tonight! I look so forward to a new episode it is ridiculous...

Another tough episode. I won't spoil anything, but the last 5 minutes were "Oh damn..."
