Nice Dubstep. Boring Episode
6 August 2012 | by (Dubai) – See all my reviews

I gotta say i never expected dubstep to be this mainstream and hit places like prime time TV or even the radio! Anyway the episode was very boring, for me at least. It was a clash between Skyler and Walt, nice idea i know, however the fans need something to get their juice flow going! We need some meth-cooking heads-blowing half-faced-zombie scenes. When the episode ended i felt it ran for 10 minutes because all the drama, especially that pool scene, were unnecessary since everyone already knows how much of an attention whore Skyler really is. I hope they step up a bit and show some gore or at least cook more meth, we didn't even see them cook a batch this time. I know you might think i'm an action junkie but that's what Breaking Bad got us used to, and that is what we expect.
