Storyline

Hank, outraged over having been tricked into thinking that his wife has been in a horrible accident, goes after Jesse and gives him a severe beating. Jesse has every intention of pressing charges and Hank is suspended. He has other problems however when Gus points the Mexican cousins in his direction. Skyler meanwhile visits Walt in an attempt to help Hank. She wants him to get Jesse to drop the charges but he's not inclined to help out. At work, however, Walt's new assistant messes up their first batch of meth requiring them to start over again. His solution is to get Gus to hire Jesse as his assistant but he says he's not interested. Written by garykmcd

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.
