Did You Know?


Walter is told by Skyler to ask for Glenn when returning the red Dodge Challenger. In AMC's sister show The Walking Dead (2010), the character Glenn drives a red Dodge Challenger. See more »


When the Challenger is in the ditch there is one exhaust pipe that indicates it's a V6 model, and later at Pollos Hermanos, Walt White Jr. tells Hank that the Challenger was a V8. Without the R/T badge in the front grill, and with only one pipe, it was definitely the V6 model with SRT8 stripes on the hood. See more »

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.
