If you guys watch “Family Guy”, then you will understand why most people find Breaking Bad unbelievably popular. The main character in the animation TV show is portrayed as being hypnotized to recommend Breaking Bad to everyone he meets, just making my point. Warning: SPOILER ALERT
Anyway, here are some of the TV show’s best episodes so far:
1. … And The Bag’s In The River
Season 1 Episode 3
Not too early to be addictive. This episode is definitely something, it’s where Walter White gives in to what he feels he has to do out of desperation, it’s where he makes up his mind once and for all and sets the ball rolling. This is where the exciting ride actually starts.
2. Full Measure
Season 3 Episode 13
This season 3 finale really had the fans on the edge of their seats. Walt coolly “gets rid” of two drug local dealers before Jesse can get to them first. Jesse is on the run, Gale Boetticher is appointed by Gus to become Walt’s new lab assistant. The two guys get along fine and are quite similar deducing from a jaunty cooking scene in the 47-minute episode. There is however something bothering Walt’s mind, he is worried that Gus will deal with him just like he dealt with the cartel, and he has a plan to save both his job and life, and it involves getting rid of Gale, for good. He has to kill Gale to be on the safe side. He organizes a hurried meeting with Jesse at a laser tag center and persuades to return the favor (he saved Jesse’s life) by getting rid of Gale for him. The episode and the season as a whole end with Jesse knocking on Gale’s door with a pistol and an objective to complete. This TV show episode was definitely something.
3. Crawl Space
Season 4 Episode 11
There is so much happening here. Walt needs $500,000 to go into hiding owing to Saul’s men, but Skylark doesn’t have the money, she gave it to Ted, her boss and the guy she cheated on Walter White. Walter almost goes mad when he learns this. Elsewhere, Jesse shows his soft side by being a good father to his girlfriend’s son, Brock; it is hard to believe he’s the same guy we know.
Season 5 Episode 14
Some people say this is the greatest TV show episode ever. Barely 10 minutes into the show, Hank dies at the hands of Jack, and the latter, together with posse later steal Walt’s barrels of money as he watches. Walter is baying for Jesse’s blood, and he instructs them to kill Jesse, but Todd decides to do a little interrogation before doing the dirty job. Moreover, the big secret is out of the bag as Walt confesses witnessing Jane’s death and doing nothing about it. This is definitely one TV show that people will never forget, especially the scenes in these episodes.
