Back in season 1, Anna Gunn asked Vince Gilligan about Skyler's occupation while she wasn't with Walt. Gilligan said that because she was heavily pregnant, that she was just taking it easy, but Gunn asked him to write her something to do, arguing that pregnant women could still do things. This subplot was never included due to the writers' strike. See more »
In Walter White's back yard you will notice an outline of a fire place right by their sliding back door, but inside the reverse wall is the dining room/kitchen. Their fire place inside should be on the side of the house. See more »
Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn't believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. Disappears. It ceases to exist, without me. No, you clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I AM the danger. A guy opens his door and gets ...

To say this program has great writing is an understatement. BB has the best writing I have ever had the pleasure of listing & reading (I always leave the captioning on). The acting is top notch by Cranston. It is also very good by Aaron Paul (Pinkman), Dean Norris (Hank), Betsy Brandt (Marie), RJ Mitte (Walt junior). Unfortunately, it feels like Anna Gunn (Skyler) is the weak link. It is hard to know if the Gilligan is trying to make a somewhat awkward and unlikable character, or if it is just not hitting the mark. I prefer to think that the writing is intentionally odd for Skyler for some reason, and that we will get to learn more in the episodes and seasons to come. The dialogue is absolutely brilliant for the most part it almost always rings true. The episodes are gripping (for the most part). The story is brutal and comedic at the same time. I have to opt for a 10/10 because there is not another program that comes close even Dexter which I've been enjoying for 5 seasons doesn't have the writing or acting to stand up to BB.
