At the beginning of the episode Jesse is shown playing the video game 'RAGE' (2011). Ironically enough, a character from the game, Dan Hager (voiced by John Goodman), is modelled on Walter White, the main character in this show. See more »


When Walter is making donuts in the parking lot, the two overhead shots showing tire marks are meant to be at different locations in the parking lot. In reality, both overhead shots are of the same area, but they are shown in reverse time order. The first shot (which has the most tire marks) includes all of the marks seen in the second shot, plus others. See more »


Group Leader: We're not here to sit in judgement.
Jesse Pinkman: Why not? Why not, maybe she's right. You know maybe I should have put it in the paper. I should've done something different. The thing is; if you just do stuff and nothing happens... what's it all mean? What's the point? Oh right, this whole thing is about self-acceptence.
Group Leader: Kicking the hell out of yourself doesn't give meaning to anything.
Jesse Pinkman: So I should stop "judging" and accept? So no matter what I do... hooray for me because I'm a great guy? It's all good? No ...

Aaron Paul's Show!
16 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the seventh episode of the fourth season of Breaking Bad. It's another utterly fantastic episode, and what slowness we had in the beginning of the episode is now gone. This was an intense episode and everything that occurred seemed to do so in a heartbeat. This episode features some stellar acting, but this was Aaron Paul's show and he delivered big time.

In this episode, "Problem Dog," Skylar forces Walt to return the car he bought for his son, which angers him and causes him to do a pricey and reckless activity. Skylar is also shocked on how much money Walt makes in a week and she worries that it's too much for the car wash. Walt persuades Jesse to kill Gus at each opportunity he gets. Finally, Hank decides to tell his co-workers his theory about Gus.

Overall, another solid episode and another excellent cliffhanger. Hank seems to be connecting the dots faster than I anticipated. Because of excellent acting, we got ourselves another memorable episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
