Did You Know?


When Jesse goes to see Walt at the school, they sit in the car and discuss the meth. Walt holds the bag of meth which has a zipper type seal on the bag, the kind where you move the little plastic piece along the top to seal it. When the coverage flips to show more of Jesse's point of the view, the bag is now the color seal type plastic baggie. It switches back and forth throughout the scene. See more »

Green Light for an improvement in quality
10 November 2013 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

Breaking Bad gets a bit better with "Green Light", but still suffers from the flaws the first couple of episodes of season three are so abuzz with. Hank and his 'own' story arc are currently what's bugging me the most because I simply take no stock in his character and the writers spend way too much time on it, while Walt's outrage is understandable, yet feels a bit ridiculous.

For the positive parts though, I really enjoyed seeing Jesse in this episode as he, for the first time ever, gets more sympathetic than Walt in the outstanding car conversation they have. Generally though, Jane's death seemingly transformed Jesse into a way nicer guy and that together with his difficult current situation makes him unexpectedly entertaining to watch in "Green Light". However, my favorite part about this episode is the network behind Walt and Jesse's work, mainly consisting out of Saul, Gus, and Mark. Not only are these three portrayed by incredibly talented actors, the entirely different way things are done now is reason enough to make this story part great. That is reassured with the final scene (giving the episode its title), in which Gus's ingenious way of addressing the current drug problem creates the perfect premise for the next episode.
