Thoughts on Breaking Bad: Rabid Dog

“What’s one more?”


Thus far the final season of Breaking Bad has been a non-stop thrill ride leading to the sure to be explosive finally. However this week’s episode felt like a setup for the final four episodes of the series. While this may not have been one of its finest episodes, Breaking Bad always manages to make even the most mundane scenarios seem intense and important, which is exactly what “Rapid Dog” did.

The End is Nigh for Heisenberg

The final eight. It all comes down this!

Like the first episode of season five, we were teased with another bleak glimpse into Walter’s future. At first I did not even recognize the house, but it became quite apparent who’s place it was after someone spray-painted ‘Heseinberg’ across the wall in big fluorescent letters. The show has been using these flash forwards’ sparingly thus far, but I think it will become a habit in the remaining episodes. I completely forgot about the ricin, and as Walt leaves his house and sees his now former neighbor and sinisterly utters “Hello Carol”, chills came over me and I sat there both confused and enthralled as the smoky credits rolled.

Thoughts on Breaking Bad: Gliding Over All

Walt Whitman, a famous American poet, has a brief poem entitled “Gliding Over All”. It goes as such:

Glinding o’er all, through all,
Through Nature, Time, and Space,
As a ship on the waters advancing,
The voyage of the soul–not life alone,
Death, many deaths I’ll sing.

Breaking Bad has had its fair share of breakthroughs and revelations, but none so big as this. Plus, leave it to the writers to reveal it in such a comical and brilliant manner. However, before I move on to the end of the episode we must glide over the rest of it.

 I’m just going to start off by saying the beginning of this episode was just great Breaking Bad fun. Walt finding his Heisenberg hat it the car, followed by the immediate transformation into a suave salesman, and the sly comment to the repairman having to fix everything but Walt’s car window. This episode started with a calm, light plot point, but only got more dramatic and complicated as the episode moved on.

Hey folks the following three reviews are going to be a bit different as they are so late. I have been out town for awhile now and was unable to see, let alone write a review. These will be a couple paragraphs long. No explanation, just opinions and thoughts. I hope you enjoy never the less.

What can I aside from Breaking Bad has been firing on all cylinders this season. Despite some qualms I have with the episodes, these do not hold a light to the genuine genius that has been occurring line to line within these episodes. “Hazard Pay”, further proves this, making it my favorite episode so far this season.

Breaking Bad: “Live Free or Die” Review

The king of the crystal throne returns for his final season, but should he be praised?

*Warning this review contains spoilers

Breaking Bad, at its core, has always been about a man trying to help his family and in the process discover what he is truly capable of. Last season, viewers truly discovered just how conniving and deceitful Walter White can be. Now with his boss and nemesis Gustavo Fring dead and the cartel eliminated , Walter is now free to reign with an iron grasp. This would be all good and fun,but with everything taken care of and Walt at the top (seemingly), where does this master chef go from here? “Live free or die” tries to open up some new possibilities for this season, however comes to rely overly on cleaning up past mistakes.
