My Most Memorable Breaking Bad Moments

–  The trailer; which is also the start of 1st episode. … I just thought: WTF? This is going to be a series of my taste – intelligent entertainment.

– Episode “4 days out” cooking meth with the song

– Walter White chasing the fly (Episode Fly)

– Jesse taking Heroine with Jane and moves to ceiling – – –

4th season – The “Box Cutter” scenes.

4th season end of episode “Crawl Space”. When Walter is looking for money, Skyler gave it to Tedd… Walter breaks up laughing, genious camera zooming out, Walter shackles in laughter… background noise as tension.

When Skyler White is “breaking bad”
– money laundering
– going after Ted and erasing traces with IRS
– yelling at Marie Schrader “shut up”
Cut from Skyler White watching shooting scarface to money counting machine

Final episode 4th season – the final stand of Gus Fring

– opener 5th season – Walter White: “Because I say so…” -> what a tremendous character development we find in him when comparing this bold statement to the man he was at the beginning of the TV show

3rd episode in fifth season: Cooking in pest control house with cool soundtrack

– Star Trek script invented by Badger(?) in first episode of second part 5th season (Blood Money)

What I like about Breaking Bad… …what I dislike about Breaking Bad

LIKE

– plot of series
– the mix between humor and drama in the first season.

– character constellations …
– Coincidences that make situations worse – and hilariously funny (especially in first season -> escalation in each season)
– character developments over the seasons
– serious/believable acting
– chemistry facts – not always accurate but realistic
– not glorifying (meth) drug consumption
– wrecked addicts -> especially meth heads
soundtrack (cooking meth, drug trip Jesse and Jane, Valley of the sun at end of episode green light, I’m not a rocket scientist start of episode Más, start, mid, end of episode sunset, Shimmy Shimmy Ya when Jesse plays in the lab -> episode before Kafkaesque (I see you?) )
Spanish/mexican gitars when Walter and Jesse destroy the superlab (last episode of 4th season)
Lets have fun and swing music during jail assassination in end of 5th season

– getting better from season to season
– know your chemistry and the world is open
http://www.bettercallsaul.com
– guest stars:
-> Danny Trejo (as “Tortuga”)
->John de Lancie (as Donald – Dad of Jane)
– Robert in last season

– Innovative Camera perspectives: shovel cam, grabbing money (5th season mikes guy getting money from number cases)

– Let’s cook!
Quotes from Más:
A man bears up … and goes on
Chemistry has to be respected
Quotes from Abiqui:
You can help me cook- how iconic Walt already cooks for him
Episode hermanos: Pollos hermanos where something good is always cooking.
Tagging trees is a lot better than chasing monsters – Hank 5th season end

Constant escalation from season to season

– Character developments
= Walter from shy/duckmäuser to drug lord
= Jesse the drug addict, child, to grown up, having great ideas that move them forward (with Mike, to destroy evidence, steal methylamine acid …)

Who is not breaking bad in the series? Almost any reoccuring character dreck am stecken – even Hank when he uses Walter to install tracker to Gus Fringes car

Business aspects of drug dealing/distribution

DISLIKE
– chemistry teacher not earning enough to support family -> even with second job
– discussing meth business in public places (Lydia Walt with Fring) – anyone might listen
