  1. They risk burning this thing out 32 weeks a year of that grim universe may be pushing it
  2. The way he does the eyes and nose reminds me of Bush's painting of Putin http://thecount.com/wp-content/uploads/Vladimir-putin-george-w-bush-new-paintings-story-top.jpg
  3. Lots of unnecessary risk and dmage to your rep as a big boss to go that route.It the kind of reckless thing Mike would avoid, but Lydia and Walt would jump head first into.
  4. What do you mean? Walt's gone, dude. This IS Heisenberg.The return of the hat.The power of the hat! Also see Snowman, Frosty The and Platypus, Perry The
  5. I don't think we'll see them go in another direction. The previous post talking about using houses by Gilligan as an angle of not having to show ramping up construction and operation of a new superlab made sense. I agree Walt is not happy about his cut, so I'm sure in the next episode we'll see new ways of Walt maximizing his profits, either by taking on distribution hismelf or finding a cheaper alternative, or finding other ways of maximizing their profits such as put a plan in place to start offing the legacy crew.300k to transport the stuff.. what is mike thinking?and why is it mike and jesses problem to pay for mikes guys - hazard pay? that should be mikes problem he promised them300K for your sales networkYou have to break it down and sell it a teenth at a time.Killing Gus and destroying the lab created a lot of collateral damage that needs reimbursement.
  6. is that a one time payment or does that come out of their cuts every time they cook?I took it as every time.every time until thier 'hazrd pay' accounts are restored to their previous values
  7. didn't love it at first, but the more I think about, the more I like this Pest Control cover. great idea. graet episode. I tthinkl the season is set up and #### is about to get heavy.
  8. Don't you think Mike's problems QUICKLY becomes Walt's problems?What are Mike's options? - kill Walt - will Jesse cook for him? - rat? No way- Quit - With no cash coming in, the 8 other guys will get antsy to talkMike has no leverage to make Walt pay his share
  9. Do any of Mike's guys, besides Dennis, know who Walt is? Kill off Dennis and the need for legacy money becomes solely Mike's problem.
  10. Landry disabled it.Yeah I know, but why even have that line if its not gonna come into play later, perhaps unless it was so Landry could earn a little trust from Walt and Jesse...maybe?Yes.I think it was just meant to tell the viewer that the exterminators are on the look out for snooping homeowners. Just trying to make the whole idea more plausible.I think the idea of cooking out of these homes is a stretch. I bet if you asked an exterminator they'd say it was not uncommon for a homeowner to return to the house unexpectedly. It's a stretch but trivial at this point in the story. I believe Landry will be a bigger part of the show this season. This interaction did both; solidified the storyline and introduced the new character. 1.13 Todd

Thats why i love this angle, i keep waiting for someone to walk in on them, keeps the tension levels high The type of extermination where they throw a tarp over the house -- the homeowner ain't coming in to that.does Vermanos take the keys too?
  12. Hank's blog http://blogs.amctv.com/breaking-bad/2012/07/hanks-blog-money-makes-monkey-dance.php#more nice commentary on Mike
  13. or have good wtiters and a capable visionary showrunner -- the two areas where this show failed IMO
  14. If they can retain some of the staff -- and rid themselves of those writers and that showrunner -- they may have a starting foundation for something decent.
  15. Ted being alive does create a weak link in the Whites' network. If the feds find out anything about him, he is the weak link and easiest for Feds to break. If they can leverage him to go after Skyler, they can apply a lot of pressure.
  16. They made it seem like he died in the last episode of Season 4...then Saul announces he woke up, an act of God...just seemed forced to me.They did not make "it seem like he died". The last shot of him was his fingers twitching. The reference to "Act of God" isn't that he woke up, that's the phrase Saul's men (Huell and the redheaded dude) used when reporting back to Saul that despite instructions that there was to be no violence, Ted got hurt. They meant that Ted getting hurt was not by their own doing, it was a self-caused accident, and more like getting hit by lightning (an act of god) than something they did to Ted.Exactly...when Acts of God happen you are lead to believe he died by tripping and hitting his head. They showed Gus with half his face blown off adjusting his tie so it was not far fetched by the show's standards that Ted died or it was implied that Ted died. Now Ted is alive. The way you keep treating possibilities as facts, then are disappointed with the direction the story moves tells me this program may not be right for you."act of God" and the symbolism of the oranges seemed to indicate that the writers wanted us to believe that he was dead. I agree they never said so definitively, but it still felt like a little bit of a walkback
  17. Tes being dead would be simple. He fell in his house. No investigation. No rat. Him being alive means he can be bitter and he can talk.And he's punched a gift horse in the mouth before.Don't think that the Ted storyline is done.I agree, there could be a net benefit there. I just wish they hadn't implied that he was dead, which was the original intention IMO.
  18. The bad: I would've preferred that Ted was dead. I think that was a bit of a walkback. Junkyard lawyer and yeah magnets felt like callbacks to scenes that were better the first time The good: Hank's investigation is going to get interesting Walt being more of an ##### Cold open Scheme just crazy enough to work "I forgive you" -- great punchline! Left me salivating for more on all of the major storylines
