in the 28th minute of the movie El Camino is quoted that residents are being moved because of the high concentration of asbestos. I think this is a clear reference to how Walt got lung cancer since his type is more common in asbestos-inhaled individuals.
What's on your mind?
I just finished watching el Camino on netflix and my thoughts about this movie where pretty Clear the moment i stopped watching. I think that the movie was ok. But just that. For the first thing the story of the movie was pretty short. From the start of the movie to the end there isnt actually a lot that happend. The whole movie is about jesse trying to get enough money so he could start a new life with the help of the vacum guy. The last scene when he has the gunfight with neil and casey stops the movie from being totally action less. I am happy that we got a good ending to jesse pinkmans story from where it ended in breaking bad. But it would be cooler if jesse was actually caught by the end and the last scene is saul goodman stepping in as his lawyer. Something in that style
Should El Camino deaths be within Breaking Bad or El Camino?
Also, I found the deaths page by searching for it but it used to be easier to find. Where did it move to?

Well all in all it works pretty well, all the BB codes are there, it feels like a mega episode bonus.
The direction and the photo direction are the same (very high) level as the series. Ditto for the narrative rhythm and editing, and of course the realism of staging (except on one point ...). Gilligan take the time to explain things, to escalate the tension. The scenes of suspense and action are magnificent. Very nice acting game in general with special mention for Robert Forster (RIP) who kept the perfect same attitude as in the series with always a high-flying presence. By the way, his character proves once again a lot of greed!
Otherwise I also liked the evolution of the character of Jesse after his ordeal. We feel he's getting mature and I'll even go so far as to say that he inherited from Walter his determination and his genius to achieve his goals ...
Well, I can understand that some remained a bit frustrated but if we take this as a big bonus episode I think it does the job.
After this general opinion we may be able to evoke a particular point ...
How could the actor of Todd have been playing by being in total false connection of physiognomy ??
How could a production with a sense of detail also pushed on the series to let pass that? We had seen the same problem with Huell in Better Call Saul. But here we could still convince ourselves that the character had a very changeable physique given the differences of time between the last season of BCS and the first appearance of Huell in BB. It shocked a bit but it passed ...
But there for Todd all his scenes in El Camino are in midquel of the last season of Breaking Bad, so it does not happen. It would almost be laughable if it did not spoil all the realism yet so well set up in the universe Breaking Bad.
Even if Jesse Plemons would have a health problem that he would have made it impossible to prepare physically for the role, there are other solutions. Either we put it less forward in the film or we unlock the budget for a VFX team like The Irish Man or Gimini Man.
Finally no excuses Vince, it's mega fail on a work yet almost perfect. For me much worse than the Starbucks cup in GOT. If film was aimed at real fans, we are on the verge of insult ...
And the Emmy Award for the worst false fitting of physiognomy is awarded to ...

I desperately need to know this make and model. It's the one in this picture. Looks mirrored with a red rim. Who's got the knowledge/

Maybe Lawson the arms salesman is the voice behind the "You ready? "?
In any case it is the most resembling voice of the survivors of the casting of Breaking Bad.
What do you think?

P2P is phenyl 2 propinone. Not phenyl acetone.
Jesse, Skinny Pete, Badger and Mike are confirmed. But there will be 6 six more characters from Breaking Bad. Who do you think could appear?
Hi all, was watching Breaking Bad related stuff last night and saw a new video Jesse Pinkman from a British Songwriter Barry Alexander King. Is this related to the movie? Song is pretty catchy and the video looks like it was filmed at old BB locations
The second trailer confirms the death of WW for those who still doubted (9 corpses announced on the radio, so the 8 members of the gang + Walter).
In the third trailer we understand that the film will show us scenes happening at the time of Breaking Bad but never unveiled. Like this meeting between Mike & Jesse at the edge of the water for example (for those who have doubts about the silhouettes, parked cars leaves no more).
The last trailer also suggests that Jesse returns to the scene of his last ordeal (and not knowing that it is to recover the barrels of tickets ...).
On the other hand big questioning on the apparent corpse that will bury in the desert. What is sure is that given his clothes and his physical condition, this scene comes shortly after his escape.
And of course on the voice that says "you re ready" ...
(And sorry for my english, thanks google translate ;-) )
There are a lot of examples.
He wanted the neo nazis to kill him, and even if he had a good reason, I though he cared for Jesse (was that really the only way of dealing with him Walt could have think of?)
He let the neo nazis take him as a meth slave
Told him about Jane at the worst possible moment
Abused him to a point it was just pure evil
Talked shit about Jesse behind his back (kinda calling him a junkie, that he can't cook meth on his own, etc.)
He saved his ass a lot of times, but why was he so mean to him throughout the seasons? Was it a part of a bigger plan of his? It just feels like most of the shit Walt gave to Jesse was just plain unnecessary.
Jesse gets on a bus which says it’s going to Nebraska. As we see Jesse’s journey to Nebraska, we get continuous glimpses of a hospital’s hallways. The theme song starts playing when when Jesse gets off the bus. He goes to a Cinnabon where he finds his old friend Saul Goodman. The theme song starts cranking up and hits it’s end when we finally see what’s in the hospital: Walter White, unconscious, alive, and handcuffed to a hospital bed. The camera pans up his face and his eyes open just as the screen cuts to black.
So who do you guys think is the true instigator of the butterfly effect of death in the series? Some say it's Walt because he got into the drug business. But what if it's actually Saul?
Think about this. While Walt chose to break bad on his own, his business with Gus which would have lead to Jane's death (the first time he crossed the line) would never have happened had Saul agreed to represent. Yes he was forced by Walt, but Saul didn't seem to mind in the end so long as he was paid. Had Jimmy not become Saul to begin with, he would not have gotten involved with dangerous/soon to be dangerous criminals like Walt. Plus, let's talk again about Gus. Gus would not have taken over the business which lead to more death at Walt's hands had it been for Mike and Nacho right? Cause Mike robbed Hector and sabotaged his deliveries which caused him to get angry and take pills for his heart that were replaced by Nacho. BUT many people wonder hat caused Mike to suddenly get revenge on Hector. While avenging his family seems plausible given Hector threatened to kill them, I feel like pride also plays into his motive. And for me the one who damaged his ego further and may have pushed him to revenge was Jimmy. After Jimmy helped Mike get Tuco's jail time reduced, he started telling Mike how smart he was for doing it, how dangerous the cartel was, and to make matters more condescending, told Mike he didn't have to pay, which obviously annoyed Mike. Whether or not Mike was always planning this can be up for debate, but Jimmy's pandering to him obviously didn't help. And when Jimmy tells Mike about his encounter with the Salamancas, I think Mike is especially angered by this because he doesn't want to believe he's on the level of Jimmy, whose this coward and low life lawyer to him. In a way, I feel like this makes Jimmy inadvertently responsible for Hector's paralysis, which in turn lead to Gus taking the business, which in turn lead to Walt building his way to being the Kingpin he was. I can see based on what I've said that some might actually think Mike is the true instigator, or maybe even Hector or Gus, but again, Walt would never have gotten away with his crimes had he went to Saul, who chose the path of being a criminal lawyer. And I also want to make it clear that I'm not saying Saul's the bad guy and Walt has no blame, I'm just saying that I've noticed the "butterfly effect" plays an important in the show cause it shows that however little you break bad, you will directly and indirectly leave a negative impact on those around you. What do you guys think? Who really started it?
How does Ed fabricate birth certificates, social security numbers, and Driver's License numbers in order to get people's new identities in "the system"?
I wonder if the movie is only going to be about Jesse cause I want to know more about walts family like if they took the money or what did skylar do with the location of hank and Steve
