I don't mean what actually happens, I'm talking more about how Jesse and Walt act/interact that lost believability to me for a lot of Season 2 and 3. I mean how reckless Jesse would be with his life on the line at times and Walt being as much of a loose cannon/gangster at times just didn't seem true to their characters. This last season still had some of it but the basic plot was so intense and engrossing it didn't matter to me.
