Breaking Bad has held me captive in its twists and developments unlike any other TV drama has, but even taking into consideration my love of episodes past, Crawl Space just blew me away. I find it hard to understate the exceptional cinematography, cast performances (particularly Brian Cranston and Giancarlo Esposito), and the almighty climax of the episode. Cranston is hitting peaks few actors manage to achieve, comparable to Anthony Hopkins or Jack Nicholson, all of the characters are developing in ways I could never have anticipated, yet in hindsight seems to fit so perfectly.

I wouldn't at all be surprised to see more awards thrown at Breaking Bad in light of this episode, simply perfectly created drama.
