Worst 4 episodes of the series
13 August 2012 | by (Peanut Butter Island) – See all my reviews

How on earth can any human think that this episode, or season, deserves an 8. Walt buys junior a new car and Skyler isn't happy...hhhhmmm. where have i seen this... All of a sudden Skyler is scared of Walt when he was in much greater danger last season and she knew about it and was a DAB ???? Yea OK.. well hey writers we don't need 4 episodes with zero suspense for you to change her character and to show that Mike had connections with bozos in jail. I mean "Breaking Bacon" is boring. Oh hey Skyler and Walt are lying to Hank and his bozo wife.. man thats new... I've never been more disappointed in a show.

Next thing you know Dexter is going to marry Deb and ruin my life, irreparably
