Breaking Bad 5.01 – Live Free or Die

Last season on Breaking Bad (in limerick form, naturally):

There once was a meth god named White
Who was in an unwinnable fight.
So he poisoned a kid
And made Gus blow his lid.
Walt’s gone to the dark side? Damn right.

Breaking Bad 4.13 – Face Off

“Christ, you two. All I can say is if I ever get anal polyps, I’ll know what to name them.”

We open the last episode of Season 4 in the hospital car park. Last week the home-made bomb Walt put on Gus’s car was never put to good use because of Gus’s tingly bits warning him away from it, so now Walt has to get it back so he can try, try again somewhere else. He runs in like an ungainly, beat-up bat out of hell and retrieves it, but now what’s he supposed to do with it? The only thing any reasonable person could do: bring it into the pediatric intensive care unit of the hospital in a diaper bag so he can tell Jesse the bad news. It’s a little awkward, because the bomb is magnetic and so are the elevator doors, but I’m sure it’s a perfectly normal occurrence for anyone who happens to notice.  Continue reading

Breaking Bad 4.12 – End Times

“Why didn’t you people just put him in the car?”

“Uh, because it’s not Nazi Germany, all right?”

 Oh, pfft, Nazi Germany! If I had a dollar for every time I heard that.”

Leave it to Marie to save everyone’s life. Due to her overzealous paranoia, she insists that Skyler’s family stay with them under the watchful eyes of several testosterone-laden DEA agents. Hank thinks she’s overreacting, but he’s too tired to argue with her. Little do they both know that the White family is even more in the thick of it than Hank is. It’s a great plan to keep everyone safe, right up until Walt refuses to go. He feels like the bleeder who’s attracting the shark, and he knows there’s very little hope of him getting out of this alive. He’ll surely feel better if he dies knowing his family is protected. Skyler tearfully begs him to change his mind, and you know she’s frazzled because her hair looks so bad.  Continue reading

Breaking Bad S4 Ep 10 – Salud

“I’m the guy your boss sent here to show you how it’s done. And if this is how you run your lab, no wonder. You’re lucky he hasn’t fired your ass. Now, if you don’t want that to happen, I suggest you stop whining like a little bitch and Do. What. I. Say.”

Before we get into this week’s episode, did anyone see Jesse deliver a package to Creed at The Office during last night’s Emmy awards? When he sees the “documentary” cameras he gets all twitchy about the delivery, and Creed holds up the brown paper bag and announces “My crystal meth got here, guys!” I LOL’d. In other news, Aaron Paul is so small! He’s just like James Marsters (aka vampire Spike), another small-boned cutie who’s addicted to something that’s bad for him and is always on the verge of getting killed by somebody who doesn’t like him.  Continue reading

Breaking Bad 4.09 – Bug

Ice Road Truckers. What happens on that one?”     

“Guys drive on ice.”

Ooh, that Vince Gilligan is the king of the tease. This week’s episode opens with drops of blood falling to the floor next to Walt’s broken glasses. Someone’s finally put him in his place (although not in the ground) – but who was it?? There are so many people who want to hurt him, you’d have to make a cross-referenced chart to keep track of them all.  Continue reading

Breaking Bad 4.07 – Problem Dog

<<KERSPLODY>> “No, I’m sure he’ll see me. Thank you.”

Jesse Pinkman can’t forget that he shot down Gale Boetticer in cold blood. And do you know why he can’t forget? Because he relives it over and over in his head as he plays first person shooter games with psychologically helpful names like Rage. The last thing he wants to do is forget, because then he might start to tumble down that slippery slope toward forgiving himself, and there’s no damn way he’s going to let that happen. He doesn’t want to be forgiven – he wants to be punished. And now that he’s no longer willing to punish himself because of his half-assed Gus inspired self esteem boost, who is he going to get to do the job for him? We shall see.  Continue reading

Breaking Bad 4.06 – Cornered

“I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? I am the one who knocks!”

Here we are again, back in the back of a refrigerated Los Pollos Hermanos truck. But this time instead of Mike riding shotgun, it’s two random dudes from Gus’s evil empire. Well, it’s more like riding “machine gun” than “shotgun”, but let’s not quibble. The scenario plays out as before, with the truck being stopped en route, the driver begging for his life to no avail, and the fellows in the back preparing to fight to the bitter end while wearing toques. The (other) bad guys learned their lesson the last time, and don’t even bother to shoot up the truck. They simply hook a hose up to the truck’s ventilation system and attach the other end to the truck’s exhaust pipe. Then they eat lunch while they wait for the guys in the truck to die. That’s cold, brother. After all the dying’s over they take a secretly marked bucket of fry batter from the truck and bugger off. Hm, it’s a good thing the cops never find all these sundry dead bodies rotting on the side of the road, or they might start to wonder about the Los Pollos Hermanos people. But I digress.   Continue reading
