It's a nice episode, but far from how good the show can be
10 November 2013 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

"I.F.T." is another interesting Breaking Bad episode with some outstanding scenes in it, but at that point of the show, the writers just couldn't think of any really thrilling stuff. I totally get that all the scenes we see are necessary for the plot, yet the show is just such a slow-burner momentarily that it can get quite boring to watch sometimes.

See, the problem is that there's nothing really bad about "I.F.T.", yet I still didn't enjoy the scenes with Skyler and Jesse at all. The plot felt too repetitive and not even the great acting could make me change my opinion about that. Another part I didn't enjoy was Dean Norris as Hank who had the strangest reaction to the El Paso police wanting him back. The two scenes in Spanish language were slightly better even though extraordinarily weird, while Gustavo and the cousins encountering was definitely nice to see. Plus, Danny Trejo appears on screen again after his hilarious part somewhere in season two, but this time, I can't overlook the fact that he's a bad actor. Back then, he didn't have that much to do since he had his head on a tortoise. Now though, his dialogs and facial expressions are just fake.

Last but definitely not least, Bryan Cranston got back to being excellent in his role and his reaction to the dramatic domestic situation he and Skyler currently have was just perfect. In the final shot, when Skyler reveals what "I.F.T." stands for, he is as good as it gets and totally blew me away. However, the rest of the episode just didn't measure up with my expectations and was a bit of a disappointment.
