A big deal is made about the GPS tracker on the outside of the barrel being a bad location. In fact, if the tracker was inside, it would be completely shielded from the GPS satellites to calculate its location and the cellular network to report back to the person who placed it there. See more »

Season 5 is awful. Product placement has REALLY become an issue, with Chrysler occupying the greatest amount of ad space.

Samsung, Whistle Pig, Xbox 360, etc, all given their ad spots.

The show is nowhere near as interesting as it was in the first three seasons, which is a shame because it was one of the best shows in TV history.

It's a bit sad to me that people review season 5 as being in the same class as 1 - 4.

The show has moved from a fairly credible premise into an over-written and ludicrous story with mediocre writing, less interesting characters, etc. In time, I think the later seasons will be the counterpart to Godfather 3.
