Figured this is a good time for a new thread, seeing how the other one's too unwieldy with 5000+ posts. (And hey look, I eliminated the typo!)

in S1E1 he turns 50 and S5E4 is titled "fifty-one" so I'm guessing about a year

solo breakfast could mean nothing (he was there on business)(plus season one bday breakfast was alone right? walt's exactly the type of fuck to be miserable on his bday). so do ppl think we'll see that scene/reach that state of affairs by this end of this year's block of episodes or is that a glimpse of the endgame?

anyway I'm not making any prognostication here, it could be total misdirection on gilligan's part, but the S5 cold open has more subtext than just "walt spends weird bday bfast alone"

way I read it, it's a flashforward a year, walt's spent some time hiding out in NH, now he's back in town and is planning to settle some score w/ a v big gun

breakfast + the callback to E1S1/happier times indicates his family is somehow involved, mainly due to their absence

diamanda ram dass (Edward III), Monday, 16 July 2012 04:39 (six years ago) Permalink

what would one need such a big gun for

yeah if i didn't already see that this guy's gonna get humbled before he possibly buys it i would've been hoping for mike to blow his arrogant head off even more tonight.

balls, Monday, 16 July 2012 04:41 (six years ago) Permalink

again, could be total misdirection on gilligan's part, for all I know walt jr is sucking down lobster rolls back in NH while heisenberg is just planning to big-dick his way into some high noon action

Rewatched Dead Freight yesterday (and the 2-3 following episodes, and the finale) and I think that's my favourite episode. So much happens apart from the heist (I'd kind of remembered it as just being the heist), and it seems like a key fulcrum for the final season(s) now.

My favourite one is definitely the one where they're being held hostage by Tucco and trying to poison him with the ricin.

just re-watched the first few episodes in season 2 where skylar knows walt's up to something w/ his extended disappearances and over-eager breakfast making but she doesn't know what. when she starts freezing him out and disappearing herself for hours at a time and he starts getting nervous it's portrayed so well.

one of the most underrated parts of the whole series imo. #teamskylar

yeah i agree. the tension of season two, all the micro-lies, all the little domestic strategies, had me gripping the edge of my chair at least as much as the more conventional action sequences that would come later. the stakes seemed just as high. or higher.

wouldn't mind watching a compilation of all the cold opens, they were pretty much all great. Wonder how well the showier/more gimmicky ones hold up. What was the episode where it's just a close-up of a hummingbird or sth and then in the ep it comes to a key bit and a character goes "woah did you see that hummingbird over there? anyway, meth." or whatever, I don't remember the details

swmp thing (wins), Friday, 11 October 2013 22:00 (five years ago) Permalink

Buried somewhere in one of these threads is a link to a blog post where an uninformed viewer tried to piece together the plot entirely from cold opens of the first few seasons. All those flashforwards made her synopsis weirdly disjointed.

Matt Armstrong, Saturday, 12 October 2013 13:57 (five years ago) Permalink

I was viewing an early episode again recently where Walt was discussing music with Walt Jr. and raving about Steely Dan (who Flynn has never heard of) and it occurred to me that Walt's culinary skills kinda made him like Kid Charlemagne...and then I do a bit of Googling and find that "Kid Charlemagne" was the name Hal used when hosting his college radio program on "Malcolm In the Middle"! Weird...Wonder if Cranston is a Dan fan and wrote that stuff into the scripts himself?

Sir Lord Baltimora (Myonga Vön Bontee), Monday, 14 October 2013 01:57 (five years ago) Permalink

i forget which interview it was, but you're right - he's a Steely Dan fan, he admitted to sneaking those references in

My wife started Netflixing this after the finale and she's near the end of S4. She started out watching 3-4 episodes at a time, but now she has to take a break to watch, like, an episode of Glee after each one to clean the nihilism out of her brain.

how would Glee clean away nihilism exactly

Nhex, Monday, 14 October 2013 03:37 (five years ago) Permalink

Fuck, I don't know, I just picked a show at random from the ones that she watches and I don't. The logical answers are down the hall and to the left.

cops on horse (WilliamC), Monday, 14 October 2013 03:50 (five years ago) Permalink

haha ok. i'm just saying that Glee makes me believe in nihilism far more than BB. that show at least had some kind of moral compass
