AMC (ended 2013)
Holy mother of god, what a brilliant episode!
What can I say? This is the best way to spend my sunday evenings. Thrilling, emotional, intelligently scripted and fabulously acted Show and it's getting better every week.
I loved the way this episode was done, a lot of different aspects in this situation where Walt has to deal with many complications, regarding cooking and treatment. One of those issues will be, or already is, Hank.. I'm wondering how this situation is going to turn out. What if Hank is able to reveal Walt's little secret? Will he turn him in? I personally have no idea, although I think it is possible..
Wow and what about the ending, how freaking awesome was that? I didn't see it coming, which made it even more enjoyable for me.
It was so funny afterwards, thinking back to Walt's speech earlier about the mercury then this. Brilliant how he said it: 'You got one part of that wrong. This- .. is not meth." And 'boom'! Lovely camera work there
I'm starving for more Breaking Bad.
Best show out there!
Definitly over the top. Watching Walt's transition throughout these first episodes is amazing, and that outburst after he got in the car was so fitting. We've all (figuratively) been there, facing our fears head-on w/o knowning the outcome, and then afterwards you act all cool until your alone and ready to burst with a "F* yeah".
Such a great show, its a shame its not more popular.
Awesome episode for sure... probably the best of the season.
I really don't see how AMC would not pick the show up for a second season... they're not exactly flush with original programming, and they need to keep this streak of highly praised shows going.
And five years ago who the heck would have guessed that AMC would be delivering such awesome shows?
Hands down the best episode to date. I loved how much foreshadowing there was: the mercury discussion in class, the beginning where we see him walking out the building with the money, etc. Walt is definitely one of the more interesting characters out there. The best characters are those who are questionable in their morals, yet somehow gain sympathy from you anyway, and Walt certainly fits that category.
I'm very interested to see how this whole Hank/Walt situation will turn out. I think the card game was foreshadowing as well, that Walt is calling all the shots, even though he really has no clue what he's doing ("handful of nothin'"). Great set-up for the season finale. It's a shame, though, that the season is so short due to the strike. Hopefully it won't affect the show in terms of a second season.
