Storyline

Having made a deal with Tuco to provide him with two pounds of crystal meth the following week, Walt learns from Jesse that they may have problems getting a key ingredient. Enjoying his new Heisenberg persona, Walt delivers only half a pound to Tuco but demands the entire amount of cash with the promise that he'll deliver four pounds the following week. Jesse reels, but Walt has a plan. They will have to break into a pharmaceutical supply warehouse however. Skyler's sister Marie throws a baby shower for her and her gift is a baby's tiara. Deciding that it's too extravagant, Skyler tries to return it to the store with surprising results. Written by garykmcd

Out with a wimp
19 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

The first season of Breaking Bad started great, with an awesome pilot, but then it just paddle for the next six episodes, just kind of repeating what they did on the first episode.

This last episode is not an exception and makes all seven episodes of the first season feel more like an introduction than anything else, as the story doesn't progress much. Walter White and Jesse Pinkman start working for Tuco and put the basics for their relationship, which probably will develop (we hope) in the second season. Apart from that, the episode has little too offer and it just feels like it's stretching the idea of a chemistry teacher as a drug dealer way too thin.

On top of that, I don't mind shows were characters are shown in "passionate" situations, like having sex, but in this episode (as in others before this one) it just seems a cheap and very childish resource. Look, Walter White wants to have sex with his wife, that means he is changing, becoming more violent and self-assured. Really? No, not necessary. If you put these kind of scenes (or any other, of course) it's because they have to add to the story. Here, they just are filler.
