I suggested the Aztec dump

Same goes for Jesse and his lame Toyota. Jesse had this beauty Camaro or Buick, and he sticks with the breadbox? For Walt what about a suburau?

That website is the bomb! LOL!!!

Check out the Philanthropic Causes link at the bottom --> save Walter White page from the show!

Love the Pollos and Benekee ads, Badger's testimonial... awesome!

Bob Odenkirk was born to play that role! He is awesome in it.

As a side note, he was recently bumped from a CBS sitcom as they wanted to tame down his character after focus groups didn't like him but he was unavailable for re-shoots (due to surgery, I think) and they had to replace him.

ps: Hank is like Captain Ahab with his Great White Whale chasing after Hisenberg. Wonder how long until Hisenberg realizes his only escape is through the elimination of Hank?

Couple of picky points, when Hank hit the cuz point blank he reacted like the terminator, at least he could have flinched.
I had the same thought: A bulletproof vest stops the bullet, but that bullet still has a truckload of momentum behind it, much like the arms seller experienced first-hand.
With that said, though, I attributed it to poetic license - not everything has to be totally true-to-life; I like that the cousins were so calm and cold-blooded.

Seems odd that Walt just leaves his place, peanut butter and jelly sandwich in hand, and heads straight to a massive drug manufacturing plant.
As far as anyone on the outside is concerned, he's working in the laundry..
that's the beauty of the setup.

Disagree. I thought Sunday's episode was fantastic. It's hard to pull off an hour show with just 2 characters but Vince Gillagan did it perfectly.

Ditto.
Fantastic character study. You don't need guns and blood to create drama (and in fact, it often gets in the way and/or is a poor substitute for actual drama).

Great writing along with superb acting will always trump stuff getting blow'd up reeeeal good (at least as far as creating drama).

I can't remember the last on-screen shoot-out that didn't have me bored to distraction (ok - the exception was the episode of BB where Hank was given the one-minute warning - that would be one of the few). But in your typical Numb3rs episode (to name just one example), do we really worry about any central character getting killed? Is there any drama or suspense there?

On the other hand, I was literally hanging on every word that Walt was saying in his sleep-deprived/sleeping pilled stupor - was he going to 'fess up about the night Jane died? THAT was riveting TV!

Yeah, it was written real well. Almost like a play. The dialogue at the end was really good.

Pinkman's days are numbered...

I frankly don't know why he would want to skim off the top and take stupid risks when he is making way more money at this (without having to put his butt on the line) than he could ever make given his skill as a dealer.

Walter knows and he will have no choice but to do something about it, for fear of getting exposed if (or rather when) Jesse and his small time crooks get arrested.

I think Pinkman is skimming off the top for two reasons.

1. He's stupid. That's been generally established. And greedy.
2. He thinks he deserves it, cause he's convinced that he's not getting paid what he should be.
