I've watched to near the end of Season 3 so far, but I've lost a lot of interest in it. It's a good show, but to me The Walking Dead is still the best.

I make Pixel Art on occasion, and sometimes sell them as Game Assets.

I'll be reviewing each of the final episodes on my blog (see signature) if anyone's interested.

I'm stoked. Season four did some incredible things to shake up the formula, and I can't wait to see how Todd and Lydia serve as replacements for Jesse and Mike.

Also I'm interested in seeing what Hank does with his newfound interest in poetry.

My review is up. "Blood Money" was good...but it definitely felt a bit odd.

I say spoilers are fair game here...at this point if anyone's reading a Breaking Bad thread without having watched the show, it's their own selves they have to blame. Maybe if you want to talk about specific developments, just mark your post with a big SPOILER FOR EPISODE "XXXX" at the top or something, that way folks will know how far along they should be before reading it.

Or you can do your own spoiler thread.

Whatever you do...

...tread lightly.

I'm surprised at how quickly these episodes are moving. Obviously the ending to Blood Money was unexpected, but now things are really pushing forward.

Belize. S'all I'm saying.

I dunno, I think I enjoyed "Blood Money" better than "Buried". I really did not expect a confrontation between Walt and Hank right away, so that was a nice surprise. As for Lydia and Todd, I think they will get caught or killed, and Lydia would no doubt squeal on Walt if interrogated. There is a lot of different ways this show can go, it's a long wait til Sunday!

Bryan Cranston did the entire confession tape in one take. Quite impressive.

It's been a few hours now and my heart is still in my throat.

It's going to be a looooong week.

I'm surprised to find so many people online still rooting for Walt. Vince Gilligan could probably make you root for a dictator if he tried.

But man oh man, what an episode.

Speaking only for myself, I've been beyond rooting for Walt for a while, but the moment those cuffs went on?

...call me crazy, and I know I am, but I actually felt bad for the guy.

I think it's because for the first time in a long time, he was doing what he was told. He wasn't fighting back...he was obeying Hank's every command. He was weak. And it reminded me of a much earlier Walter White...one that I still could root for.

You're exactly right. I had no lingering fondness for the man as he was hiding behind that rock (sorry, mineral), but then the handcuffs came out and suddenly I did. Vince Gilligan made me root, just slightly, for the dictator.

THEN THE NAZIS CAME.

I just can't bring myself to root against Walt. No matter how heinous his actions, he always seems to have a good reason for them, and his loyalty for Jesse has never faltered. His desire to help Jesse is even greater than his desire to help himself or his family. Ironic now how that very loyalty is the greatest threat to Walt's freedom.

I'd argue Walt's pride takes the top spot in his priority list. Higher than even Jesse and his family. He didn't let Jesse cook his formula, nor did he take the Gray Matter job offer (something that would've gotten his family out of harm's way).

Which is why I don't feel sorry for him. I enjoy seeing the man being a donkeyhat... almost as much as I enjoy seeing him in handcuffs and spat on by Jesse. Seeing people argue that Hank, Jesse and Gale (?) are somehow worse human beings than Walt is a little strange.
