The finish of any form of entertainment is by far the hardest part to get right.

Jessie is one of the very few characters I feel genuinely bad for in the series. Aaron Paul puts in a hell of a performance.

This is a pretty good look at why the final episode goes the way it goes. (spoilers obvs)

I love that we live in a world where they'd go to the effort to make the Alternative Ending. It really made me laugh.

I finished this after a marathon watch over the last three days. One of the best TV shows I've seen. Superbly acted by all involved. Excellent script and writing.

I was so happy for Jessie. I felt extremely bad for him nearly all the way through the show. Even though he did some horrible things, he remained human. Walter, on the other hand, I wasn't rooting for him as much. He turned into a monster. The blackmail was the final straw for me. I loved his character however, and the development that took place with him was handled with the utmost of care by writer and actor.

The supporting cast were also amazing. Hank, Mike, Hector, Gus, and lately Todd (Meth Damon!) All great. Even Skylar. I had a reason to not like her. She had a lot of depth, and the performance was awesome.


All in all, fantastic show. Bravo.

Finished Breaking Bad last night. Can't say anything that hasn't already been said about how good this is.

Easily the best show I've ever watched.

Why don't they just watch the original with subtitles?

This.

Same with American remakes of UK shows, god forbid they are able to enjoy something without an American accent on it.

They do, it was huge here. Also, this is not a Colombian version, it just happens to be set in Colombia. Most Spanish language dramas and soaps are Mexican/US productions and air in every country down here. There's a Spanish language version of Nip/Tuck and Grey's Anatomy too, which are hilariously bad. There's probably more, but those are the only ones I've seen.

I'm rewatching this and just got to Crawl Space.

Gus doesn't intend to kill or hurt Walt, he just warns Walt that his family will be killed IF Walt goes near Jesse. So then why does Walt run crying to Saul and end up in fits of crazy laughter? What is going on? There is no danger! The DEA can protect Hank, and Gus killing Hank would be unwise anyway since then the whole department would know Hank was onto something.

On another note, great foreshadowing with Ted almost tripping over his rug when he answers the door to Skylar.

But Gus did tell him that he will deal with Hank. And if Walt interfered, he will murder his wife. His son. His newborn baby.

And Walt did go to Saul and have him do an anonymous tip to DEA that a hit is out on Hank... That is why asked Saul to do it a hour after he leave... he arrived home and in his horror that the money he needs for his family and himself to be lifted by the vacuum cleaner guy, is almost all gone.

He burst out in a crazy laughter as he realise he's putting his family in danger by Gus. As he is the only one outside Gus's circle of trust that Hank will be bumped off.

I don't believe that Gus will let Hank be alive any longer than he intended to.


PS My wife and I just finished the entire box set on blu ray and she absolutely loved it. 8-)
