Breaking Bad, 1/27: "Cat's In The Bag"

What, no thread for this yet? I hope I'm not the only person here watching this. I thought the pilot was pretty good, but this show earned a coveted "auto record" spot on the DVR after last night's episode. Between the rather morbid comedy of Walter sliding the various supplies over to the guy in the basement and the... well, the sheer nastiness of the last ten minutes, I do believe I'm hooked.

Yes, this episode was even better than the pilot. I love how nothing has been resolved from the first episode -- in fact, just about everything is worse!

I want to know what website it is where you put in somebody's phone number and it spits out their "MyShout" page.

I finally realized where I recognize the actor playing Jesse from -- he played the oldest daughter's boyfriend on Big Love (completely different character).

I too like this show. I hope it stays around for a while. I think the older guy might have to start thinking about getting a new partner if the young guy doesn't start wising up soon. The bath tub scene and the dialog after were classics.

Great episode. I was laughing so hard at certain moments especially when he was rolling that guy the essentials from off camera. I was trying to guess what was coming next each time.

That's my one big concern about this show. While I'm not expecting Jesse to turn into a genius or anything, I'm hoping that he realizes that Walter might just know more than he does when it comes to science and stops arguing with him about every little thing. Hopefully he'll have realized his mistake by the time he's done mopping up what's left of Emilio.

could that acid really eat through a bath tub, floor etc?

I like this show - but the filming was still "hazy" ... however in the recap at the beginning of the episode the picture was crystal clear.

Because of its high reactivity toward glass, hydrofluoric acid is typically stored in polyethylene or Teflon containers. It is also unique in its ability to dissolve many metal and semimetal oxides.
So yeah, sounds like nasty stuff.

Are you watching in HD or SD? I watch the HD version and the show looks really good.

I don't know if this is the norm, but my cable company (Insight) has an OnDemand page specifically for Breaking Bad. Actually they have 2, one for HD and the other for regular TV. I gotta wait for Mondays to watch the HD version.

You want a character that is a high-school dropout that endlessly smokes weed and meth to 'smarten up'?!?!?

I checked out AMC's site and they have a full list of cable providers that offer Breaking Bad in HD.

God, this show is fantastic. I think it would be good even if Bryan Cranston wasn't in it, but having him lead is the icing on the cake.

BTW, looks like's last week's premiere pulled in pretty good numbers for AMC. 1.1 million viewers for it. Against playoff football, too. Once football ended, the numbers went up for the show. Mad Men premiered at 1.3 million, so it looks like this is a good hit for AMC. Hopefully it'll stick around for a few years.

Damn, wish we got it in HD (DirecTV). Great show looks pretty crappy in SD.

Hydrofluoric acid is extremely corrosive.

This show has been great so far. I love the awkward breakfast scenes.

As he showed in MITM, Bryan Cranston isn't afraid to flaunt it all.

A couple of great moments that were laugh out and jaw-dropping!

So what were you asking? Oh yes, why do we need a plastic container when we have a perfectly good bathtub upstairs?

Crap ass Cablevision only has SD.

I may just start downloading the HD version from a torrent site so I can watch it on my tv.

Caught the pilot and this episode on Sunday night, it's definitely over the top, but I couldn't look away. Set the dvr to record the season, it will be interesting to see how they take care of the "problems" and how long he can keep it from his family.

He never told them about the cancer right?

Great news! My friend just told me about this show today and after watching both episodes On-Demand, I am hooked! Can't wait for tonight's episode.
