    Yeah, while it wasn't perfect it was pretty damn good. And the ending is always the hardest part.

    Hmm, is the barrel only with the blu-ray? Amazon almost makes it seem that way.

    That I don't know, but when I bought mine, I was nervous because it didn't indicate it either way on the container (but it was blu-ray).

    Cool. Well, I can always do Ebay, but am wary of that. Maybe stormchaser can help me (I think that's who it is).

    Re: Breaking Bad

    Did anyone else get sick of Skylar's moral superiority through the series? I mean, she's a white collar criminal herself yet she always carried this disgusted attitude, even when she was laundering Walt's drug money for him. Yeah, on the surface, she was okay with being a multimillionaire, but you knew deep down that she still hated it. Not that I have a problem with how the writers made her - it was very well done. They just made it very easy to dislike her, or at the very least made it very difficult to sympathize with her.

    Skylar's the whole reason Walt became Heisenberg. He wanted to live out his days and not get treatment. She basically forced him to get the treatment, which forced him to find a way to pay for it.

    Re: Breaking Bad

    I just finished the whole show. I think I would have liked it more if I wasn't expecting it to be the best thing next to The Wire. I think it's somewhat of a different strokes for different folks kind of thing,

    They did a good job of knocking off the ending of Lost, and the Brother Mouzone character from The Wire...not that I blame them.

    That's not entirely accurate.

    When we find out Walt has lung cancer in the first episode, he was told by his doctor that there was no treatment for the cancer that he had. His meth cooking at that point was as a way to provide some amount of financial security for his family after he passes. Heisenberg was a name he used to separate his meth cooking life from his family life as a way to protect his family.

    It isn't until later Skylar finds out, they get a second opinion, and find out that the cancer is treatable. Up until now Walt is still a reasonably good man who's doing a bad thing and he's having problems embracing it - he hadn't embraced the Heisenberg personality yet. But since Skylar wants him to fight it, and he refuses to take his former business partner's money to pay for the treatments, that's when the "security" money turns into "treatment" money.

    Walter embraces the Heisenberg personality after he beats cancer. It was one thing to be doing something as terrible as cooking meth when you weren't going to live to face the consequences. It's quite another thing now that he has survived cancer, not to mention at this point he actually likes cooking meth and the amount of money it brings. It's at this point that Walt changes from the sympathetic cancer victim who will do anything to provide for his family to the real bad guy in this show (even though we cheer for this bad guy).

    Terrible idea. The series is a self-contained masterpiece.

    Edit: That said, he's probably just screwing with people.

    If anything, I'd assume the rare appearance on better call Saul. Perhaps they'd set it in a time line before the end of Breaking Bad.

    It would be super lame though since Walter pre cancer was a super nerdy goofy boring dude.
