re: Breaking Bad Thread (NO SPOILERS OUTSIDE OF THIS THREAD. INCLUDING SIGS & CHATBOX.)
Gus' cartel scene was far superior to the prison scene, as good as that one was. There was a lot more suspense involved as there were multiple major characters you cared about involved who might not make it out, whereas the prison scene was just unnamed lackeys and didn't feature any twists. I don't think it's a fair comparison, really.
Not to mention the build-up with Gus' flashback scenes to when he first met with the cartel.
