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

Goofs

When discussing alcohol with Hank, Walton says that if they had been drinking the liquor in 1930, it would have been illegal, and one year later it would have been legal. Prohibition in the United States did not end until the ratification of the 21st Amendment in December, 1933. See more »

A Black Comedy..
11 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Walt and Jesse deals with Tuco. They produce huge quantities for him, but soon they run out of raw material needed for meth. Walt comes up with an idea that consists a heist on a warehouse.

Meanwhile Skyler learns a secret about her sister.

I really loved it. It has lots of black comedy. And this show has a some kind of cliché: every time Walt and Jesse stuck, Walt comes up with brilliantly but confusing scientific solution, and Jesse mocks him with basic statements. This gag is used sometimes and I really laugh at that scenes. The scene with thermite is an example of this.

To review season 1, It has a very interesting story arc, very good character depth and acting. I don't want to say more about acting, because Bryan Carston's Emmy award as Walt really sums up everything. I hope season 2 is as good as like this.

My vote is 10/10.
