During the flashback scene in the pool, it is obvious that none of the characters are native Spanish-speakers, and most speak with heavy American accents. Neither Fring nor his partner Max, who are supposed to be Chileans, speak with anything resembling a Chilean accent. And Don Eladio speaks with mostly Cuban characters. See more »

A fantastic episode
15 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree that this was just excellent. My first thought after watching 4.8 was, "Vince Gilligan is a f***ing genius." Brilliant direction, acting, and script as well.

I've always thought that Aaron Paul's character and his portrayal of Jesse were tremendously entertaining. He deserves another Emmy for this episode alone. I find myself being terrified of what is going to happen to him in future episodes. It's such a testament to his ability as an actor that he can make a murdering drug dealer seem so sympathetic.

Every actor involved with this series is just amazing. I can't believe that something of this quality is available on cable television. Breaking Bad proves that TV doesn't have to be crap. It sets the bar high for every other TV drama today.
