I feel when in S4 Face Off, when Gus gets half his face blown off, he should be hospitalized instead kf dying, but never regain the ability to walk and lose his ability to speak.
What's on your mind?
In the season 2 episode "Phoenix", there's a scene in which Walt and Marie are having a conversation while Walt props baby Holly on her side "in case she decides to do a little spit up".
It reminded me of Jane's death and what Walt didn't do to prevent it. That's some masterful storytelling.
This is my favorite scene from Breaking Bad because of all the things they’re doing with La Santa Muerte and I love the Cousins. Also I’ve done this before so I can relate to that. (Not asking La Santa Muerte to kill someone, but make the crawl) But I want to know what all of your favorite scenes are. Comment

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 ...
Apologies my English mistakes. Thanks to Google Trad :-)
There is a song playing in the backround during the poker scene in "Crazy Handful of Nothing". Does anyone know which one it is? thanks
I wondering what Walter White doing after kill krazy 8. I know that he gonna clear the body by using acid but it is not mention in the movie. Any one can tell me another theory ? Thanks
Doesn't Fring's death seem completely unrealistic? not in the aspect of having his face blown off but the fact that he got tricked by some old man in a wheel chair and Walter white;Gus Fring is very careful and seems to always be 10 steps ahead and he should have been ahead here too,even though he didnt have mike to inspect the nursing home tyrus should have been able to spot a bomb planted in between the wheels and the chair not to mention that tyrus didnt earlier inspect the old woman that was greeting walter outside the window.
The best moment was Fring's death. It was the smartest thing which do Walter
I believe Gus killed Victor because he was seen at the crime scene by who knows how many people. Than he took it upon himself to cook up the meth when Gus knows it's more to it than just cooking up some met following a recipe. I can follow Gordan Ramsey's recipe but I know dam well it won't come out like his. The biggest reason he needed to scare the hell out of Jesse and Walter they got a little too comfortable with not following orders.
In first episode of S4 of BCS, Gus says to Juan Bolsa: Someone will move against the Salamancas. Which brings war. Which brings chaos. Which brings the DEA.
Do you think Gus prophesied the upcoming appearance of Hank and / or Steven Gomez in Season 4 of Better Call Saul?
Just why does Jimmy place the drumstick after he makes his camera guy restart the camera and keep filming? Wouldn't the camera just catch proof that Jimmy deliberately misplaced it there?
Can someone explain me what the name of the last episode "FELINA" means? Thanks in advance!
So glad when Jane died! She was SO bad for Jesse. First she was all, "Who is you & me?," but then when Jesse came into money she was all, "I'M your partner." She got him hooked on smack and was just a user at the end of the day. Jesse was too busy waiting to get smacked up with her to attend Combo's funeral, the guy he got KILLED, or to even be coherent for the biggest deal for the blue stuff so far. Good riddance!
"You know, I can foresee a lot of possible outcomes to this thing, and not a single one of them involves "Miller Time."
I am so waiting for the chance to use this line in real life.
After the hapless truck driver runs over Mike's "special hose" and recovers from the crash, he staggers out of the cab and walks down the left side of the truck - and Mike enters the frame and puts his gun to the right side of the driver's head.
Where was Mike hiding? The long shot just after the crash shows no nearby cover between the road and the truck.
While the driver was still stunned, Mike could have sprinted over to the right side of the truck and hid there - and then when the driver exited the driver side door, Mike could have quietly (in all that brush?) walked around the front of the truck and snuck up behind the driver - but wouldn't we have seen him behind the driver as the driver was making his way to the back of the truck?

They didn't mention this on the podcast; in fact VG is a little "mysterious" about it - but to me the answer seems obvious.
Jesse told Gus that Brock was "not sick - he was poisoned". Not "the doctors think maybe..." and not "he got into some poison". "He was poisoned" was a pretty clear admission of Jesse's belief that some person had deliberately poisoned Brock.
You can see Gus react, and he pauses briefly before replying. Gus would have started thinking... why would Jesse think that? If it's true, who would have done that and why? There aren't that many players in the game. Gus knows it wasn't done on his order, and he has to assume that Jesse wouldn't have done it. And Gus knows that Walt wants him dead.
He concludes that this may have been a ploy by Walt to keep Jesse at the hospital... to draw Gus out. If that's true, then the fact that Jesse seems to know about it shows him something else: Jesse and Walt may not be so much on the outs any more. They may be conspiring in this together. But Jesse isn't the careful liar Walt is, hence the slip - "Brock was poisoned".
Of course Gus would think that Walt did it, and Gus would further guess that Walt would have convinced Jesse otherwise. After all, Jesse would not be going along with any plan of Walt's that involved Walt poisoning Brock - not that he knows of.
And we know Gus is careful; he's survived in this business for a long time. He thought about it more while walking back to his car. Hmm, the car was out here unattended for quite a while...
So he takes the safe option: Don't go to your car, take a taxi back to wherever, have his people check the car later. He doesn't have to have known; he just has to be a little bit suspicious, and he has plenty of reason for that.
I made an account just to rant about how annoying and stupid Jesse is. He just cant do anything right and keep making stupid decisions and mistakes every..fucking..episode!! I've already quit watching four times and im only halfways through season 5, at which point im so annoyed by Jesse that I just skip past every scene with him. Wtf, this character destroyed breaking bad for me. I just cant watch it anymore, fuck off Jesse
I've been wondering something for awhile now: if Hank had never discovered the Walt Whitman book (Leaves of Grass) in his brother-in-law's bathroom, would Walter White have gotten away with everything he did?
Think about it: left undiscovered, Hank would have had no reason to take another look at the Gale Boetticher case. To me, leaving that book out in the open, or even leaving Gale's note there, seems like a careless mistake on Walt's part.
