How many people didn't catch "Saul Goodman"? I got it pretty quickly, but it seems like some people I know didn't figure it out. Pretty funny and clever

The sole good man? I don't get it either.

Also, you guys are pretty much major ass holes when it comes to Skylar. Razz And I think that's what Vince Gilligan is trying to pull off.

Her actions are motivated by what she sees Walt doing. Essentially, alienating her, becoming a criminal, putting her and her children in danger etc. She doesn't cheat in order just "get back" at Walt, she does it because she's emotionally alienated by Walt and thus seeks a connection elsewhere and to "get back" at Walt.

I think just like Walt's increasingly immoral actions are consequences of the situations he's put in, so is her bitchiness. I mean, we can't just expect her to go: "oh, I didn't know you were manufacturing meth just to care for us. I guess that's okay then, no moral issues with taking money that are profits from keeping people in addiction, if all of that was just for our sake."

We get pissed off at Skylar because we have seen the shit Walt goes through, we see his intentions, but Skylar doesn't. All she gets is an increasingly bitter, distant husband who's involved in the drug trade and tries to rationalize it by saying that it was for the good of the family. If you cut away all the scene of Walter isn't with Skylar and just single out the scenes where they interact the picture isn't nearly as nuanced.

But anyway, this is why I love the show: it denies consensus.
/2 cents.

Doesn't matter how she sees things. She's still being a complete and utter bitch. I'm not saying Walt is being a good guy, he's done some pretty shitty stuff too. At least we can justify his actions by saying he's doing it to help his family. She isn't. She's doing it for personal and emotional reasons... not because it is the right thing to do. Neither of them are good people or in the right, but at least he's doing it for (what he sees as) a good cause.

Discounting knowing what Walter is really doing and going through, all you would see is a man that is secluding himself from his family and still doing what he can to hold that family together. And again, she is just being a bitch in reaction to his growing distance. There are much better ways to handle it than the ways she chose. (And obviously there are much better ways for Walt to have handled situations)

The really sad part is that those two main characters are so shitty I find myself feeling more for Jesse. He seems to be the only person actually trying to better himself and get out of the situation. But then people just keep dragging him back into it.

anyways...married for 16 years and they now have two kids yet skyler wants to take them away from him for no rational reason.

also what is up with the colors in this show? I'm assuming they are hinting at something? Jesse seems to wear a lot of yellow, Marie wears a lot of purple, Walt wears green, Skyler..blue or white? can't remember.. Some of these might be off as I'm just thinking off the top of my head

I'm split on him. You guys are probably further than I am, but Jesse's "clean" atm and is banging some latina meth head chick with a kid. He was going to this narcotics anonymous group just to find more addicts to deal to when he was already making millions off of this deal with Gus. He destroys Walt's windshield..why? The kid says "yo", "like", and "bitch" every other word.

Bitch is his favorite way to end a sentence. It's retarded, but I laugh.

I figured I would bring this thread back.

I watched all 4 first seasons over the past couple weeks, haven't looked into season 5 yet. I really enjoyed it, but it also annoyed me somewhat frequently. Mainly the actions of Walt. Sure, sometimes he's a super genius, but he's very often someone that does stupid things because he's got an unreasonable amount of pride and/or is drunk, or just pure immaturity. Some of it you can attempt to explain by him being guy breaking down under the stress of his new life and dealing with cancer.

To be honest, I didn't think Skyler was that bad. Jessie is pretty cool, and the amount of shit he's gone through in the show makes Walt's life look easy. Of course, a lot of that shit is at least partly his own fault, but that's what his character is, somewhat of a fuckup so it's more believable and easier to get emotionally invested in. Also, Aaron Paul's just a great fucking actor in this.

I think I mentioned this before, but while I never really knew him, I knew of him and went to high school with Aaron Paul. He was a just one of those fairly popular guys that you would see around in the halls, but he always kept a sense of being a likable/really nice guy. Hell, most "popular" kids in high school can't keep that side of them and get stuck up, but from the interviews I've seen of Aaron Paul it seems like after all he's done he's still managed to keep that side of him.

Hmm, after watching that it reminds about about how he would always randomly be jumped by a bunch of dudes and have the shit beat out of him like every day. It was a little out of hand. Oh, and I remember hearing about him projectile vomiting over the entire prom.

Coincidentally the one day I have cable tv is the day that the Breaking Bad new season started.

First episode was pretty uneventful up until the end really. It ended on a "I would like to see what happens next" note rather than the "I need to see what happens next because you ended it on a cliffhanger" note which was nice.

I'm finally caught up with this show. Pretty cool episode tonight.

However, this show is really starting to get on my nerves a little bit, I'm kind of glad they're going to end it soon when I'm still enjoying it. My issues mainly are the ones that I mentioned at the top of the page, but also Jesse's character is just turning into an extremely well acted emotional wreck because half of the time they don't know what else to do with his character.
