Overrated, but not bad
23 November 2013 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

In "One Minute", the story zeroes in on the character of Hank who really gets into trouble this time. This sort of trouble also involves Jesse and Walt and makes for some outstanding conversations to be seen in these 47 minutes, but also has writer Thomas Schnauz exaggerating it on multiple occasions.

Firstly, there'd be the scenes with Jesse in the hospital, in which Aaron Paul gives an overly and gratuitously dramatic performance. Then, there's the ridiculous final parking lot shoot-out that is so filled with flaws that I wasn't able to take it seriously. And another negative point, although not as grave as the two others, is that the calmer scenes in "One Minute" are mostly dull and sub-interesting conversations. Maybe I'm being a bit harsh and I'm not denying that I considered the pre-credits scene to be outstanding and loved Bob Odenkirk's and David Costabile's acting, yet altogether, this is not as good of an episode as the IMDb average may lead you to believe.

It's also not only that I found flaws in the aforementioned parts of "One Minute", the episode also brings the show in a direction I personally don't really approve of. What happens in this and the next episode is mostly just a cheap way to get the story forward, in my opinion, and I absolutely disagree with the characters' decisions, which additionally makes it less fun to watch.
