    Makes sense, because AMC likes getting these amazing, critically acclaimed series rolling, only to fuck with their budgets and schedules until they break.

    My sister needs some help. She just had to rush her cat to the emergency clinic because he was peeing blood. The little guy needs a $2500 surgery to survive, and she has no money left after paying for major car repairs last week. If you would consider sharing this on your twitter/facebook/whatever, that would be greatly appreciated. If you have a few dollars to pitch in and help her, that would be even more amazing of you. http://www.gofundme.com/clq06k

    Honestly, they could give it to me in 5 minute intervals before reruns of Hell on Wheels and I'd watch it. Pumped for BB to be back this year.

    It's not on any Netflix yet.

    Although I'm just going to pick up the BluRay when it releases in June, because this show demands HD.

    That video has got me so pumped now. Seasons five is going to be simply amazing. I just wish we didn't have to wait until next year to get the second half of it.

    Still need to watch Season 4, which probably won't come out on Netflix until after Season 5 has already started. Good thing I have DVR.

    Am I the only person who is still pulling for Walter? I know he has done many many bad things (as have Jesse and Skyler) but I am still hoping for a happy ending for them. They sure have worked for it!

    I feel bad for Walter, but I don't think I'm actually rooting for him to get away unscathed. He's not quite as loathsome as Vic Mackey, but I am waiting for the other shoe to drop and for Walter's house of lies to finally come down. I do think he's reached a point where I'd feel cheated, if Walter's fate would be "merely" dieing by the end of the show.

    Interesting. To me, the only character who may be unredeemable and who is still alive is Skyler, but I would be fine with her getting out on too.

    I don't think you're supposed to root for Walter. The show's creator said that he wanted to show a good man becoming a bad one.

    In my book, mission accomplished.

    He made the hard decision at the end of Season 2, and IMO it was the right one.

    I meant season 2, whoops. But season 3 was similarly Walt making a hard decision to once again save Jesses life. Really, if Jesse didn't fuck up so much everything would be fine.

    So I was thinking about what will finally bring him down, and I figured they would drag something back up from the first few episodes. The guy in the basement he killed was law enforcement of some kind(maybe DEA? I forget.), and I see them tying that back to him somehow. More likely skylers boss will get tied back. However he is easier to cover up since he owed back taxes, was shady, and suddenly got an influx of cash.

    I don't think it was the right decision. It was practical and convenient, but hardly "right". At least if we include any notion of morality in the decisions the main characters make.

    I think one of the strengths of this show's writing is that most characters make choices that are on rare occasions morally sound, but most often driven by an urgent sense of self-preservation or petty desires and feelings of revenge and greed.

    ...in accordance to the ancient prophecies.

    Out of the two decisions he could have made, it was the better one. That's what I meant.

    I think its asking a lot to expect people to sacrifice themselves for the good of someone who is trying to destroy them (and who is literally destroying your friend in front of your eyes). It wasn't a nice decision or a decision we would want to encourage people to make with forethought, but I don't hold it against him, since it seemed reasonable in the moment, to me.

  • Joe DizzyJoe Dizzy Registered User regular
    I don't know. He let another person die, so he could continue profiting from cooking meth. The fact that it was arguably helping Jesse get out of his drug spiral was an added bonus. I think it's easy to fall for the rationalisations that Walter makes for his horrid actions, but I think there's a case to be made that they are just that: rationalisations of monstrous acts.

    It wasn't just to continue profiting from cooking meth though. It was to keep his family from finding out what he was doing, which would have destroyed them, and which would have destroyed his brother-in-law's career. I'm not saying it was awesome, but it wasn't only done so he could keep making fat stacks.

    That's true. It was also done so he could avoid the repercussions of his actions. Which is probably why I don't want Walter to die at the end of the series. ;)

    I like the fact that even two years later, we're still arguing over the moral implications of a single 30 second scene from this show.

    I think the writers accomplished their goal.

    My sister needs some help. She just had to rush her cat to the emergency clinic because he was peeing blood. The little guy needs a $2500 surgery to survive, and she has no money left after paying for major car repairs last week.

    There were exactly 2 choices here. Turn her and she lives. Do anything else and she dies. What is the third option you are offering?

    Shoot her in the head so she doesn't rise again.

    Oh wait, that's a different AMC show.
