As far as Skyler goes, I don't like her either - her 'moral compass' is a bit wonky as well, so she comes across as a little hypocritical - but at least she's only committing adultery and laundering money.  Whereas Walts killing or almost killing innocents (Jane and Brock), among all of the rest of his transgressions.

One more thing, in regards to the above sentiments about hating Skylers scenes and wanting to fast forward through them ... the last couple of days, the scenes with Skyler that have made me uncomfortable are not her fault.  It's all of the scenes near the beginning of season 5A where Walt is getting all "lovey" with her and pretending like their life is normal.

I don't "like" Skyler, nor do I root for her either (much), but I'm long past rooting for Walt at this point too.  Not sure how I want it all to end, but can't wait to find out how it does!

Walt is going to die on this last episode.  That is one thing I believe after watching more interviews with Vince... He has stated why he picked Bryan Cranston - going back to X-files 'Drive' episode.

The thing about Walt taking a bit from each person he killed is true and prevalent. Walt also gets a Volvo, like Gus drove. and to connect the Mike thing- Walt starts to drink his whiske

I thought about that but when he ordered his drink in "Granite State", he ordered it neat. And I feel like it's more of Walt becoming that person. He may not have seen Gus do it, but he became

Oh, I love Walt as far as him being a bad ass character...but he's despicable. I've thought that for a long time. But the show would be just as big without Skyler...get rid of Jesse or Walt and see how big it is. Ya know?

Absolutely not!  The tension between Hank and Walt would not be even remotely the same (it wouldn't really exist at all) if they weren't related.  Skyler is absolutely a necessity.  Ya know? ;)

Breakfast boy (thanks Jamo, or whoever coined that term previously) on the other hand .... ;)

Marie could just as easily be Walt's sister, making Hank his brother in law. I mean, she's important because he needs a wife to be the "family man", but other than that, her character could have been changed a lot, and I really don't think it would have made a huge difference.

But you're suggesting that the best show in the history of television (source:  me ;)) could be improved by eliminating one of its main characters.  I disagree.  She is a requirement, even if its just for most people to be able to say "***k that b**ch." ;)

Similar to my feelings on Brandel Chamblee.  I don't think anybody really wants him gone.  Even his most ardent haters want to be able to complain about him.  And, boy, did I just set myself up for the most perfect segue into this hyper-relevant clip (nsfw - language) ...

Sure, but my point is that the way her character has played out is nowhere near as vital as Walt's, or Jesse's, or Hank's. The "author" saying that she's the most important character is just flat derp material.

While Walt has been dangerous to anyone that crosses him, he's always gone out of his way protect those he cares about, even Hank. The fact that his wife said she was afraid of him really struck me as crazy. I understand her being afraid BECAUSE of him but not OF him.

OK, yeah, I'll agree with that.  She is not the most important character by any means.

I really miss Gale. They got rid of him too soon or something

Have you guys seen the video for Jesse's old band?

Fallacies!

Not as funny as Gale, but still worth knowing about:

I let this go when I first read it, but now have to disagree strongly.  I've been watching the 5A episodes all week and just watched the train robbery one and the one that follows.

Rather than stop being a bitch, I think what Jesse needs to do is continue doing the opposite of what Walt and Todd are/have been doing, which is to be a non-sociopathic human being. ;)

That was mainly my comment based on Sundays final season premier... The entire show he was down again... Like he was back in season 3, when he was depressed after Jane died.  He bounced back - but pretty much was a mess in season 3.

Yeah, and to be fair, I'm responding after just watching the train episode, but more importantly the one immediately following ... where the cold open is them quietly disassembling the kids dirtbike (and then the kid as well) to put it into the chemicals, and that Todd guy is completely unaffected by the whole thing.  He laughs it off as "shit happens" and Jesse socks him.  No way you could kill a kid in cold blood like that and be completely unfazed and not be a sociopath.  Mike and Walt were also not bothered enough by it in Jesse's eyes either. ;)

Can't wait for Sunday!!!

Yeah that is why Jesse is a wreck right now... Killing that kid had a major impact on him.  I'm guessing he is going to snap real soon.

Thank you - I am sitting at my desk, snickering to myself currently.
