  •  Sorry, but Jesse must die, now. (4+ / 0-)

    None of the characters on BB (except the baby) should survive, they are all that annoying/horrible.

    We keep waiting for Jesse to evolve, but he remains the weak link, the eternal screw-up. I hope he snaps back enough not to bring the house down, but at this point, he needs to go.

    I like the action of these first two episodes, but how they are going to fill up six more is going to be an interesting watch.

    The politicians may be bought, and the system corrupt, but it is our duty to fix these things.

    •  Well, to each his own and all that.............. (10+ / 0-)

      but "annoying/horrible"?  How about human?  Yes, it's entertainment, I would say great entertainment, but the reason we're all so taken with it is its representation of the  complexity of the human condition.

      As for me, I don't want them all to die, especially not Jesse, but I know pipers must be paid.  Six more, expect brilliance.

      •  Nope, annoying/horrible is what I see. (0+ / 0-)

        I admit I'm not in the mainstream with that opinion. Heck, I believe Gus was the most endearing character on the show. He was certainly the most interesting.

        If Jesse comes out of yet another of his downward spirals, then that would be great to. I guess I find it a bit of a stretch that now he is struck with conscious after dissolving and disposing of numerous people.

        But yes, to each his own. That is part of what makes art interesting.

          I think you're wrong about Jesse. And excuse me, but Gus Fring was "endearing"? God almighty. "The most interesting," I'll admit you have a case, though my favorites are Saul and Mike; but whatever the opposite of "endearing" is (and the phrase "coldblooded psychopath" comes to mind), the dictionary has Gus's picture. He's only a shade more endearing than Tuco or the two cousins (lovely family you've got there, Hector). Ask Victor what he thought -- oh, wait -- you can't, because Gustavo endearingly cut his throat.

          Jesse started out as a feckless loser. He's grown a lot. I'm developing the theory that he'll come out of this doing the cooking in partnership with Skyler (Junior, Hank, and Marie having been killed). The one who's "broken bad" was Skyler all along, under our noses.

          Maybe Mike's granddaughter and Holly will become friends and carry on the family business! Spinoff!

      You're looking at this like a game of survivor.
      Jesse has a conscience....but yes.
      Come on Jesse!!!!

    •  I feel for Jesse (8+ / 0-)

      he's so imperfect, yet he has an innocent sweetness to him at times.  He never takes death lightly, and it's the death of an innocent child that pushes him over the edge, into guilt and despair.  

      I wonder if Jess won't be the catalyst that brings down Walt's house of cards.  

      I am afraid that Walt's children will die, because there must be some karmic retribution for all the death and destruction Walt has caused.  And it has to hit him very deeply and very personally.  Simply dying of cancer won't cut it.
