A list of all the horror movies I have ever seen.
Alphabetical order by show title.

Breaking Bad: Fly (2010)
Were they trying to punk the audience?
I have watched a lot of TV series over the years and seen some pretty terrible bu**s***. But this is by far the worst television episode I have ever seen in my entire life. And that is quite terrible.
First of all, it's obvious that this was a filler episode. That alone is shocking, considering this is a thirteen-episode-per-season show. Filler episodes are more common in shows with greater episode orders.
Secondly, I assume that the writers were trying to make this a dramatic "bottle" episode. A bottle episode is a TV episode that focuses on only one or two characters in an isolated location.
Well, whatever dynamic the writers were trying to create between Walter and Jesse did not work AT ALL. The dialogue was incredibly boring and written very poorly. The climax which almost happened near the end of the episode ended up not happening at all. I literally face-palmed. The entire ambiance in this embarrassment of an episode was awkward and uncomfortable. Even the acting in this one was shaky. I feel like Aaron Paul tried for his part but Bryan Cranston looked like he was hung over the entire episode.
Moreover, I'm already annoyed by all the hype given to this overrated show, and especially to Bryan Cranston, who I find to be an extremely overrated actor. The fact that this episode was even allowed to air makes me even more annoyed.
Dear "Breaking Bad" writers and producers: If you want to learn how to create a TRULY brilliant and intense bottle episode, go watch "Six Minutes," episode 3x10 of "The Killing."
