A speed bump that redeems itself in the final quarter
25 April 2017 | by gusfring89See all my reviews

This episode was the weakest so far of the season, but it did have some decent scenes that make it worth the watch.

This episode slowed down compared tot he first two, and you could tell it was no longer in the directing hands of Vince Gilligan. Instead, it went to one of the weaker directors who likely had their hand in many of the disappointing episodes of the first two seasons. That's not to say it wasn't fair enough, but the first half hour meanders around just like the directing in seasons one and two. But there's enough material and progression toward the end in summation to make up for it. That's important because episodes one and two of this season directed by Gilligan really built the momentum and trajectory, which looked promising and more stylistically and thematically in line with Breaking Bad, which BCS has yet to even come close to rivaling. Well, it's hard to compare to the greatest television show ever made in history, but Gilligan has showed he might be able to do it. Luckily, Tom Schnauz, a Breaking Bad graduate, is back in the driver's seat next week so he should be able to connect to the Gilligan pulse of the show, which is where it's really at.
