    Well, that explains a lot. Something about Walt/Bryan just looked off. I chalked it up to aging (and he is 10 years older than when that episode was shot) but he just didn't look right to me.

    Think of what could be. A Netflix limited series of Skinny Pete's arrest and interrogation and Badger's hitchhiking trip back to ABQ.

    I thought it was just ok. I don't know what I was expecting from a movie, but it felt like a couple episodes just strung together. Which, I guess, is fine. But that's how I felt about it. It was just fine. In fact, I didn't watch it all at once, I had trouble staying with it and stopped around half way, and finished it the next day.

    Jesse was a different person, which in character, makes sense given what he has been through. But all the "Jesse-ness" was taken out of him. The personality was destroyed for this gritty and hardened action character. Again, understandable from what he's been through, it just felt so different. We only got a glimpse of his personality in the flashbacks. I didn't hate it, but I didn't think on its own it was that great.

    Haines ("40 miles that way") is not a very good place to disappear in. It’s a very small town and he’d definitely stand out.

    Or he meets up with Dexter at an Alaskan logging camp and they debate if Tony Soprano is actually dead or not.

    At least Jesse had an additional $250K from the welder's duffel (less blow and hooker spend). A new identity is cool and all, but he really needs to change his look.

    Vince has stated in interviews that there will be deleted scenes including the Skinny Pete interview on the bluray release

    Too bad they didn't do something similar at the Jay & Silent Bob screening. At least where it's legal ;)

    I liked it. Took me awhile to figure out Todd, but the rest of it was very well done. I guess now I can't hide money in my fridge :(

    My two guesses for the hiding spot were the fridge and that weird filled-in swimming pool.

    I kept thinking he removed bricks from the fireplace and stashed them back there.

    I also thought it would be that filled-in swimming pool. The way they highlighted that at the beginning seemed like a bit of a Chekov's gun. But it turned out to be nothing.

    Even during the movie I leaned over to my wife and said "it's in the pool!!" I wonder why they put in that MacGuffin in there in the first place?

    A pool is a perfect spot for a red herring! ;)
