A Breaking Bad Community
AMC (ended 2013)
In advance of this week's Rian Johnson directed "Ozymandius" we really need to discuss the director's inspired work on the show.

1) "Fly" (Tim Surette's Review) In which Walt and Jesse spend some quality time together...



Season 3's "Fly" was the show's second "bottle episode," constructed after the first (season 2's "Four Days Out") actually resulted in cost overruns. Keeping Walt & Jesse contained to the amazing Super Lab set was a brilliant decision and Johnson used nearly every camera angle possible as Walt and Jesse chased down a rogue fly and discussed the painful past...



2) "Fifty-One" (Tim Surette's review) In which Skyler went for a swim...



Season 5's "Fifty-One" marked Walter's birthday, with a year having passed in the plot of the show. Johnson again expanded on the show's usual visuals with a controversial mini-music video to introduce some new vehicles for the Whites...



Then, in the episodes final moments, Johnson used the White's backyard pool to capture the toll Walt's action had taken on Skyler...



3) "Ozymandius" In which we will surely see the result of Todd's firearms training...


While it's an unpopular opinion, I think "Fly" is easily a top five Breaking Bad episode. Keeping in mind the potential for "Ozymandius," what's your pick?
