That's the dumbest thing I've ever read here. And I'm fully caught up on the Trump thread. 

Even the baby's acting in this show was top notch. 

They still advertising Low Winter Sun?

From Aaron Paul's AMA:

"I gotta be honest. I never wanted Breaking Bad to end, simply because I'm a huge fan of the show and I didn't want to be unemployed. But after reading the final 8 episodes and understanding where the writers are going with it. I'm so happy they ended it the way they did and I think all of you will be happy as well. It's a dark, crazy ride to the final episode but it is a fun one. Yeah, #####."

Anyone get the feeling Jesse dies?

Kind of like I didn't want it to end but I get what the writer's are doing. When I say "end" I mean the end of Jesse.

I'd rather see Walt die than Jesse. Jesse is sort of the moral compass of the whole thing. I'd also would like to see Jesse kill Walt. Walt needs to die. He can't escape death forever like he has.

That Low Winter Sun show is horrible. It's like a combination porn parody of The Wire and The Shield, without the intercourse.

I'll give it time, but The Shield similarities are what I caught too. Just gonna give Ziggy some love. If he wasn't on it: *clicks the remote*

Which is why Jesse dying would be more of a punch in the stomach.

Walt's an amoral character that has been dead even before his self created birth into becoming Frankenstein. Everything around him is rotten except Jesse. Skylar accepting his amoral ways won't save their own children. Walt's son is just another example of another failure in his mind with his son's challenges. Walt was a man who once believed in the basics of what a human creation was based on. What he believed ultimately betrayed him. Jesse doesn't know any better other than what his own heart tells him. Walt can't survive without Jesse because Jesse is his soul now. He always saves Jesse because without him he means nothing. So it makes sense that Jesse has to kill him. It's the perfect release of Walt's tortured soul.

That being said, Gilligan will mind screw us with that established dynamic in the end.

All the comparisons between Walt and Gus at this point. Wonder if Walt poisons everyone with the ricin similar to how Gus poisoned the cartel. I know it has been pointed out that the ricin is not fast acting. The ricin has been focused on so much it has to have a big role to play.

Didn't people used to say this about Hank's minerals though? I remember we all thought he'd come across something while doing his mineral collecting that would help him make the connection to Walt and break the case open. I don't remember anything coming of it though, although maybe I forgot.

Also I think the ricin already has played a big role. Its made the rounds quite a bit and been used in a couple different plot points, most notably when Jesse thought he'd poisoned the kid. Based on the flash forward it does look like it's coming back for more, but it's not really a Chekhov's gun thing at this point. It's played a part even without being deployed.

Great read thanks!

Did not realize he was valedictorian and Harvard grad.

Also this sounds interesting

Hank had so much inner angst for the last three seasons; well see how much inner angst goes on in the last eight episodes. [Laughs.]

And this:

I would just love it if Hank were the last man standing.

You can still be the hero and not be standing.

Also Norris's take on that last scene is WW pleading with hank to be careful not just a threat.

Good start to the season. Here's my guess how it goes: Crazy Tuco ain't gonna last long and the boys will take over his empire. Walt will struggle with leading the dual life and eventually either get so sick from the treatments or just tired of always worrying about his family that he will try to quit.

Its funny reading predictions from page 1

Absolutely. He likes Hank.

That was a really fun episode. Love Saul. Love the break from the home life of Walt. Love the look that Hank gave after the got the fake Heisenberg. Too easy and he knows it. I can't wait for the moment Hank realizes that Walt is the guy.

...which will probably coincide with Hank's fatal heart attack.

Wow this one was close

Anyone catch the scene where Jesse is in waiting room to see Saul.

He is next to Huell. (Saul's Bodyguard)

Jesse goes into his pocket to grab his cigarettes?

It just seemed like the focus on the cigarette pack was more than usual...or was it just me.

Also

found this when looking for the bodyguards name

LOL

yea, I know, it was a joint in his cigarette pack, but it's been stated that Huell planted a pack of cigarettes on Jesse (link below) that eventually poisoned Brock.

Probably was to make sure you saw that it was a joint and not a filtered cigarette. The humor in the receptionist saying Jesse Pinkman is smoking pot in the waiting room has a different rhythm and is funnier if you already know he's smoking pot.

I actually thought for a moment hule was going to tell him "don't smoke that!" Like if Jessie's joint was in upsidedown and then Jesse would realize he was right that hule nabbed the cigs and knew about the ricin one. Thankfully the writers are smarter than that.

The Wire and BB are obviously close.

Rewatchability? I'd give the nod to The Wire. More characters. More layered.

But I have no hesitations recommending BB to anyone. The Wire? Somewhat recommend it to a more discerning viewer.

A 19-year-old sorority chick would love BB. The Wire? Not as likely.

BB deserves points for being accessible to everyone. For that reason I'd give the nod to BB over The Wire.

I'm not disagreeing with this. I agree but I don't know why.

I don't see a 19 yo chick "loving" either show.

So I should be watching the shield?

I tried the first episode. Seemed exactly the same as all the other cop shows out there. I suppose you have to stick to it but it certainly didn't grab my interest. I thought the bald guy was annoying.

When it first aired I watched the first episode and didn't continue. It wasn't until the third season that I gave it another shot and I'm glad I did. Great show. Vic rules!

No he didn't.

Walt poisoned Brock with berries from a plant he has in his backyard.

Huell REMOVED the ricin cigarette so that Jesse would think Gus did it.

You guys are convincing me to give The Wire another shot. I watched season 1 and thought it was just ok. Are 2-5 different/better or mostly more of the same?

If you watched the whole first season and didn't really like it, I'm not sure if it's the show for you. Although season two is a bit different due to it's focus on the ports. I liked it but some people put it at the bottom of the seasons.

I agree with this. Out of all the remaining characters on the show, Walt killing Jesse makes him the most bad in the audience's eyes I think.

I would say that most people who love BB would love The Shield.

Anyone know if The Shield is on Netflix?

Not via streaming.

It's on Amazon.

It's also on crackle...last time I looked anyway.

He is as annoying in the Shield as he is great in Justified.
