Good grief, man, he was only in the car a minute or two before the cops came nearby...no way fresh footprints would be completely covered in that amount of time even in a blizzard...

I'll agree with you that it's doubtful that footprints would be totally covered up, but at the same time, I got the feeling that there were some subtle cuts in that scene to make it feel like quite a bit of time elapsed with the cops circling before Walt finally actually left.

They should have had a plan. Nurse Jackie put crushed pills into her "Sweet & All" packets fro her coffee and reglued them shut.

Back to the scene with Lydia, and may have been mentioned here, but I am assuming that Walt "stole" all packs of the Stevia so there would be only one pick to give to Lydia. And I think the waiter mentioned that there weren't any left.

I think most people were expecting most of the scenes to play out somewhat like they did, but they just were done so well.

I think my favorite scene, outside of the mowing down of the nazi's, was during the scene with Elliott and Gretchen.

After we realized that WW was using them to get money to junior, I think we were all pretty much waiting for the stick. He wasn't going to just take their word for it was he.

And snap, the "hit men"

Really cool scene.

My g/f thinks that that was a little homage to JAWS:

Alternatively, I thought this would have been just as good:

Saw this in the comments section of Breaking Bad Facebook page. Gave me goosebumps. You could drive some trucks thru the logic/feasiblity, but it was cool.



16 years later a young blonde girl walks into her woodworking class late. The teacher shoots her a glare.

"Late again?"

"Sorry Mr. Pinkman, just had to go over some stuff with my Chemistry teacher."

Jesse smiles.

"It's alright. Take a seat, Holly."

What I learned today:

In addition to being the name of a plant, Stevia is the name of a company that processes the plant.

Cool!

This brought to mind a question that I had forgotten about until now. When Flynn was called from class to take the phone call from "Aunt Marie", was that Walt's old classroom?

Two observations from the, always excellent, Den of Geek review

1. There were quite a lot of similarities to Unforgiven as the anti-hero rides back into town to right wrongs

2. They did a great job of talking about how the show changed things for people and TV. To take my interpretation, they said audiences need to strive for 97% and not accept 60% (a la Walt's meth). I liked the comparison and also the fact that they placed it as 97%, not perfect but close.

I've never heard of setting up a trust with a box of cash so they've got to get that mound of money in the financial system somehow. It would be interesting to see the Anti Money Laundering paperwork it would generate when they try to deposit it in their local branch bank. Or, they could try 900 deposits just under the $10K trigger.

I'm about two-thirds of the way thru Talking Bad from Sunday night, and, while I've been one of the more vocal critics of that show, so far it's been excellent. I would highly recommend watching it...almost every major character (sans Cranston who was in flight at the time of the live airing) was on the show. RJ Mitte was particularly good; he's been overlooked in many interviews, and I found his perspective enlightening.

Mo Ryan really was unsatisfied with the finale !!!!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mauree...b_4022685.html

I agree with some of the comments but others go overboard. I agree with this.

Quote:
No time was spent on Marie's grief, and there was only a brief scene of Skyler's utter resignation. The last episodes didn't linger on Flynn's adjustment to being the fatherless lynchpin of a broken household; he didn't even speak in the finale. Mike, gone. Saul, gone. Jesse appeared -- briefly -- to absolve Walt of his sins, which seems incredible, given what Jesse learned of Walt's role in Jane's death, not to mention everything else Walt had inflicted on him.
It's also interesting that she also brought up Lydia's daughter who was completely forgotten.

Also a good comparison to The Shield, which I thought was a better show and ended in a better way.

There are only so many themes and plots out there. Seems like almost everything is similar to something that came before.


So is the show still over? What's next? What's the great show that comes after this one?

We had The Wire, LOST, Shield, Breaking Bad. There have been many other awesome shows. I'm ready for the next one.

You know, I think about that a lot. I love to say that shows like this only come around every 5 or 10 years, but I have to say, there have been a LOT of great series recently.

Another thing I've noticed, at least with myself, is I don't start thinking of a series as being one of the greats until 3 or 4 seasons in. There are rare occasions (Lost being one of them for me) where I was gripped early on, but mostly it just slowly penetrates into my psyche.

I'm starting to think of Homeland that way, but it has many flaws and falls down a lot. I love The Walking Dead, but it's just not in the same league. We'll just have to wait and see, I guess.

Homeland has no chance of belonging on a list like that.

Game of Thrones has a chance, but it's going to run into problems as it covers looser, more convoluted material in the next book(s) it will cover. If it gets through the next season or two still remaining in top form, it will belong on the list.
