Did You Know?


Following comments in this episode about ending DEA agent Hank "on a trip to Belize" - meaning murder him - the Belize Tourism Board actually offered free vacations to Vince Gilligan and eight of the shows's cast as PR stunt to help confirm the Central American country's image as a safe spot for tourists.

In this chapter when Walt walks away from Hank, first the sky is overcast and there are no shadows. Then when Walt turns to face Hank and Hank closes the door. There is bright sunshine and dark shadows on the ground. Then when viewed from inside the garage, all is overcast with no shadows again. See more »

A Good Episode!
21 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the tenth episode of the fifth season of Breaking Bad. It is an episode that basically shows Hank trying to beat time to take down Walt. It is not as high-stakes as previous episodes, but the episode is still entertaining. There is one scene in particular that I liked, and that involves Lydia trying to perfect her meth supply with the help of Todd.

In this episode, "Buried," Hank reaches Skylar before Walt, but she refuses to speak to him. Marie also confronts Skylar, and that does not end well. Meanwhile, Walt takes the money he locked in a storage house and buries it. Jesse, in another state of depression, gets arrested by the police.

Overall, this is an entertaining episode as we see the family being turned enemies. I am definitely curious to see what will happen next as we near the series finish line.
