Anybody watching Breaking Bad on AMC? - Page 3

post #31 of 511

Another good Jesse audio discussion moment was during S02 when he touted his new TeeVee to Jane.I remember that according to him it had Dolby HIgh Def Surround Sound  with nary a receiver in sight. 

 

Here is an interesting tidbit from last Sunday. While Skyler made her pitch, the Aztek can be clearly seen in the background behind Bogden. Later of course, Mike commented about his about Walt's poor tailing. Of course, it was an easy  reference to how Walt located the henchman. But also, it could refer to the chemist's earlier follow of Skyler.

 

Anyway, Walt has been served a strong slice of humble pie so far and deservedly so. Mike has obviously questioned his loyalty to Gus. However when faced with the alternative in a bumbling, out-of-his-depth Walt, the appropriate response is to beat the would be alpha male. That was a fantastic scene. Mike and Jesse are my two current faves. Walt, I wouldn't mind a crack at as well.

Really? This thread died just when season 4 has picked up? 

 

It would appear Jesse's I don't give a **** attitude has reached its zenith. Now, teevee law will state that nothing can happen to the man anguished over Gail's death. The character has been too integral to the series, and Aaron Paul has gained too many fans. 

 

So will BB break the mold and actually ice him? Naah. First Mike would have done it first off. He is not the type to drag things out unless for a reason or conscience (remember his wife beater speech to Walt the season prior?). I'm really at a loss. They won't tote Jesse back to rehab; been there done that. They tried scared straight with the squatter, to which Jesse dismissed with his wry blindfold observation. 

 

Hmmmmmm........what are the chicken man's plan for Jesse Pinkman!

I haven't been following it, but just got a strong recommendation from my sister. We're freakishly about 100% in agreement on entertainment, so I'll be buying the DVD sets shortly. Only thing that bugs me is that I don't (and will not) subscribe to cable. Usually, I get the DVDs after a show is over. I like being able to bypass waits over season cliffhangers and charge right through. smily_headphones1.gif

(I will be giving my sister my Sopranos collection this weekend. She hasn't seen it yet, and I know she'll be immediately hooked. My brother-in-law will be happy, too. smily_headphones1.gif)

Same here, that way I can watch a full season in one week. I just finished Sons of anarchy (3 seasons in 2 weeks), anyone watching this?

Haven't missed a episode of Breaking Bad yet...

Use to watch the Son's for the first & second  year but it just got to far out to be believable and always the same stereotypical biker plots.  I mean gun running... come on.  A more realistic story would be that Walt teams up with the Sons.  Now that show would be a hit...

NEW YORK (AP) — The AMC network and producers of its popular "Breaking Bad" series about a chemistry teacher gone bad have agreed on making a fifth and final season of the show. Production on the final, 16-episode run will begin early next year and hasn't been scheduled for air.

 

If ratings continue to be high I doubt next year will be the "final" season. Time will tell.

The chickenman works in mysterious ways... My theory is  that Pinkman will be brought more into the business. Remember last season Jesse  tried to stir up his old crew while attending meetings? Well, Gus in the same sense, is will attempt to feel that need. Give the restless dog a stick to fetch. 

 

One big question for me was at to how planned the heist was. It definitely felt like Gus knew the two would get jumped. But did Mike know? He didn't appear to. Then if so, Mike's distrust of Gus could only increase. My theory is that Mike is going to be the downfall of the chickenman.

 

Walter White is an idiot with his loose lips at the dinner table. To me, it was just as much an act against Skyler as one of arrogance. He had begun to feel henpecked again when his wife ordained the Tuesday return date. The drug trade and its trappings are an assertion of freedom for him. It was a good result for the show to me though. If only that it put Hank back in the hunt. I grew tired of his bed ridden self-pity. I want old Hank back!

Thread Starter 
Skyler's phone message from her old lover has made Walt indignant and unappreciated. His arrogant drunken comments at the table is a challenge Hank can't resist. I'd hoped Hank will eventually flip and enter the family business but he has picked up the gauntlet thrown down by Walt. Mike calling for a ride would indicate he knew nothing about the setup. He had questions but knew not to ask.

In another direction, it would be interesting if Walt's son gets on the product. It would put some moral drama on the home front.

Ahh, such a good show. Much <3 to it

Indeed, its ratings are still relatively low, although it is cable. Heavily serialized programs can have trouble there some of the time, unlike say CSI.

 

BTW, I read an interview with the creator Vince Gilligan, and he said there will only be five season of BB.

I wish they make 5 more seasons of Breaking Bad, but my wishes never come true.

post #44 of 511

Skyler has want it takes to be the boss. Walt...well he is more of a buffoon each successive episode this season. Love Jesse and Mike at work together.

I would bet chicken man did not return the three Honduras workers back to their home country.
