Breaking Bad S03E01 No Mas Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

I started out watching Breaking Bad episode to episode as it aired on AMC but after season two, the show got put on the back burner for me. I know the series has finished but I've finally got the feeling to resume where I left off. Truthfully, I've been watching Breaking Bad marathons for the past couple of days. I had to watch the first two seasons to server as a refresher. It's funny how many little details ... Read More

Breaking Bad – S02E13 – ABQ Review

So it seems that those body bags that we were teased with a while back didn't contain the bodies of Jane and Jesse. They were related to their actions, however. The season finale was a real rollercoaster. It was quite the ride and that's sort of what I've come to expect from Breaking Bad. It remains a great show. Jane didn't get to survive her overdose but Jesse was luckier. He didn't OD, but he took the loss ... Read More

Breaking Bad – S02E12 – Phoenix Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

I'm catching up with my Breaking Bad with the season finale airing later tonight. After seeing "Phoenix," I have to admit that it's looking more and more likely that those two body bags we saw a few episodes ago will have Jesse and Jane in them. Their future is looking bleak at this point in time. In the previous episode, we saw Walt was facing a tough choice: either deliver the drugs or go to the hospital to see his baby ... Read More

Breaking Bad – S02E11 – Mandala Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

I recently heard an interesting theory about those body bags which were shown at the start of an episode a few weeks back. It's said that Jesse and Jane were in those two, possibly killed by Walt. I was surprised that the identity of the two people wasn't given in that episode, but it did leave me wondering afterwards if in fact it is Jesse and Jane. I'm leaning that way after seeing "Mandala." After one of the few remaining ... Read More

Breaking Bad – S02E10 – Over Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

I think it's safe to say that Walt is an odd fellow. His demeanor is never one of a happy person. He reminds me of myself in that his "highs" are really never that high. He's pretty low-key, if not boring and bland. The good news that Walt got the other week didn't change that. His moment of joy was really for his wife and family. He was back to his old self minutes afterwards and the little ... Read More

Breaking Bad – S02E09 – 4 Days Out Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

With the new Saul character just introduced a week ago, it didn't take long for Breaking Bad to get him involved in the meth business. He crunched some numbers and realized that Jesse and Walt had better do some major cooking if he's going to leave any money for the family. This lit quite a fire under Walt. He immediately rallied Jesse and the two were headed to the middle of the desert for a 4-day cookathon. It wasn't exactly ... Read More

Breaking Bad – S02E08 – Better Call Saul Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

After his horrific experience in Mexico, Hank reacted just about as I expected he would. He appears to be suffering from some sort of PSD. He was put in a scary, terrible position and he's not looking too good. Hank was cheered up a little bit by Walt, but I'm not sure how well he's actually doing. He's still having problems in the elevator. He seems to be putting up a front. I figured it wouldn't be long ... Read More

Breaking Bad – S02E07 – Negro Y Azul Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

When that Spanish music began playing at the start of this episode, I thought that maybe I would enjoy something a little different, but when all was said and done, I felt disappointed by the music. It wasn't exactly catchy music and indicated that "Heisenberg" wasn't going to live long after the Mexican cartels moved in. After taking care of business last week, Jesse found himself depressed over how everything went down. Walt, on the other hand, saw this as an ... Read More

Breaking Bad – S02E06 – Peekaboo Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

We all knew that Jesse was going to have to do something about those two people who robbed Skinny Pete, but I seriously doubt anyone expected what would transpire in this episode. I know I wasn't expecting it. I'm constantly amazed (and frustrated) by the fact that Walt almost always gets away with his lies. It's just unbelievable that things seem to work out for him in some fashion, even when it looks like he's toast. Bryan Cranston as Walter White His lies ... Read More

Breaking Bad – S02E05 – Breakage Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

For some time now I've been hoping that Breaking Bad would turn around and get Walt and Jesse back into production. Thankfully, it happened this past weekend as the fellas got their ducks in a row and started back up. It wasn't a piece of cake, mind you. Jesse worked his tail off to get everything set up, even buying a car, getting a place to stay, taking care of the RV mess, and even getting distributors set up. It was the ... Read More
