I like Walt, in a 'kind-of' roundabout way, but your definitely not the only one.

After he killed Mike, who was one of my favourite characters, he's gone down a lot in my estimation. I do still enjoy his manipulative ways though and his character progression has been second to none throughout the 5 seasons. I've nearly watched through all of the episodes for the second time and it's just making me want these last 8 episodes even more, the wait until next summer is going to be hell.

A lot of opinions are split, but I just don't want Walt to win. He's simply too damn evil, and he needs to die. Jesse, on the other hand...

I don't Walt to win either. What I do want to see is him going out with a bang, which seems likely to happen, or so the start of season 5 seemed to foreshadow anyway. I think we all know Walt isn't going to win ultimately, he has absolutely destroyed everyone he has come in contact with in one way or another. The only way he could even slightly win is if he manages to escape, but even then he will have lost his family, the fundamental reason he even started cooking meth in the first place, so winning would be a loose term in that instance, although to be fair you could probably argue he's already lost them to an extent.

I've really grown to like Jesse. He started off as a naive little kid, but he's really evolved as a person and he, out of everyone involved in the business, is the one who deserves to live the most in my opinion. Just thinking about the second half of season 5 makes me excited. Now Hank knows, there really are no holds barred, I'm just interested in how he will go about the situation, whether he'll take the careful methodical approach, or just go all guns blazing for Walt. Either way I'm sure I'll be on the edge of my seat for the last 8 episodes.

Hanks going in guns blazing.

Too much emotion not to.

I'm insanely curious about how he'll inform Walt that he knows.

So guys, what are your favourite episodes?

There are so many great episodes over the course of the show, so it might be hard trying to isolate one and call that your favourite episode in the history of Breaking Bad, but I'm interested to see what people might come up with. Personally, I would have to choose "Dead Freight" (episode 505), that is the one with the train robbery for those unfamiliar with the title (although it's fairly self explanatory).

What a fantastic episode this is. I like how it starts out with one of Walt's finer acting performances which involves him breaking down and "crying" in front of Hank, just for the opportunity to bug Hank's new office, classic Walt manipulating scenarios for his own benefit. I also like the "planning" scenes where they're all in the abandoned basement figuring out the steps needed to pull off the heist successfully, with Mike being the badass he usually is, wanting to kill Lydia on the spot and once again Jesse being the voice of reason, something that has become rather common place during the 5th season, which shows his transformation maturity-wise. Lastly, the entire actual heist is brilliantly done, nail-biting right up to that final moment where Jesse lay motionless on the train track, I thought Walt had fucked up for sure when he didn't pull the plug earlier. Also, the episode ended on a huge bombshell when Todd decided to act upon impulse and shoot the little kid, who lets face it, had seen too much.

So there are a few reasons why I rate this episode so highly, obviously there are so many other great episodes but this is the one that stood out most to me. I'd like to see what other people think.

^

The pilot (S1) - Perfect introduction to all characters, cleverly foreshadows what's to come, and keeps you on edge throughout due to the very enigmatic flash-forward in the opening.

Cat's In The Bag... (S1) - Really emphasises the desperation and somewhat hilarity of Walt and Jesse's methods, and also demonstrates the many fractures in the two's relationship to soon come.

Peek-A-Boo (S2) - Very intriguing chemistry with Jesse and the meth heads' child, which really kicks off his caring for children that is essential later on.

4 Days Out (S2) - The first real attempt to focus primarily on the strengthening of Walt and Jesse's relationship, with brilliant results.

ABQ (S2) - A flurry of constant, hard-hitting emotions from every character, and a fucking jaw-dropping climax in the form of Skyler's pipebomb on Walt.

One Minute (S3) - Demonstrates the darker/sinister badass side of Hank, through his beatdown on Jesse, as well as the emotional side, through his departure from the force. A similar formula happens with Jesse, showing his weak side and his own cynical demeanour as he contemplates what he'll do to Hank as he's hospitalised.

Fly (S3) - The ultimate analysation episode. For a Media Studies student like myself, this is an amazing barage of symbolism, foreshadowing and emotional boost of characterisation for Walt and Jesse.

Box Cutter (S4) - Only thing to note is the death of Victor. Will always stay infamously in my memory as one of the snuffest-looking scenes I have ever seen from any media text ever. Hats off to the effects supervisor for the series, seriously.

Salud (S4) - Both Jesse and Walt's separate narratives really keep you invested. On Walt's side, the conversing with Jr. is heartwarming, while on Jesse's side, his mastering of the recipe, and the very clever poisoning of the entire cartel leave a really good taste in your mouth.

Crawl Space (S4) - The prelude to an emotional apocalypse. The desperation of Walt and the way all of his plans spiral out of control into an abyss of insanity is such a sight to behold.

Face Off (S4) - The sinister build-up of Heisenberg apexes in this episode, in my opinion, and the long-awaited killing of Gus is heavily rewarding and shockingly puts Walt on the kingpin pedestal.

Live Free Or Die (S5) - The now-hard edged Walt is perfectly emphasised and exudes intimidation not just for the characters, but also for the viewers. The coldness of some of his lines made me cower a little inside.

Also, am I the only one who's extremely underwhelmed by Jesse's lack of narrative in the fifth season?
