Sorry I'm late with my reply here, since you already texted me last night. The timing could've been a little better, but it did make me laugh.
Ok, so favorite Breaking Bad characters? First of all, Gus Fring is the shit as far as bad guys go. He's scary calm, yet intense at the same time and totally badass. Such an interesting character, imo. And the whole scene at the pool with the cartel.... hooooly crap!
I also like Mike a lot. Pinkman can be a bit emo/whiny at times, but is still a good character. And then, of course, I can't forget Walter. I can't necessarily say I like him as a person much anymore, but I still root for him somehow. His character's evolution has been so interesting to watch. His moral ambiguity is what ultimately drives the show.
Who are your favorites?
Haha, depends if I've watched ep 4 by then, but I've seen 3 at least.

Oh Tiff, Nuno and Gary, just stumbled up on this Uproxx and if you've got time, watch i; it's quite funny:
It's the cast of Happy Endings putting on a live show with the writers and Kat Denings.
I will watch it tonight
Your choice of characters is so nice. It's practically the same for me! Gus was just such a cool cat. That dude had a heart rate of, like, 20 bpm...
His Spanish might have been the only downer (I don't speak Spanish myself but even I could hear some nasty accent going on) but apart from that minor detail he was killer. One of the most charismatic antagonists on a TV show in recent memory.
I have to say that overall I found the atmosphere in later seasons to be quite suffocating at times so I was really thankful for Mike and - another favorite of mine - Saul. Those two acted as some sort of antipode to all the danger and serious shit going on and delivered some well-appreciated comic relief. (Well, I thought they were funny and was happy whenever one of them showed up after some three minute spiral of psychedelia, distortion and selfhate from Jesse...)
I also can't say I really "like" Jesse and Walter all that much anymore. (I loved early seasons' Jesse with his dorky, baggy clothes and his gangsta posturing... ) But they really are well-written and interesting characters. I'm still feeling great empathy for Jesse. He's just this lonely, lost soul who got manipulated by Walter many a times. So I'm hoping he will be "rescued" in the end, recover and find happiness eventually.
Walter on the other hand turned out to be just so ruthless and... yeah... let's call it "evil". It's brilliant how the dynamic of Walter and Jesse has changed over and over. - But just like you I also hope there still might be hope for Walt. s5e08 had shown some great promise regarding this aspect before that cliffhanger came over us.
I'm so excited. Never actually got a chance to discuss the show with anybody before so this is all new territory for me. xD

Thanks for campaigning for me! I don't really expect to win anything, but that's sweet that you thought of me. My favorite "campaign" sig has to be a toss-up between Gary's and Mr. Prince's. Both are awesome.
Glad you could find someone you could finally talk with about the show! It saddens me that more people at MH don't watch it, especially those who I generally think have good taste in TV (I'm looking at you, Gary, Nuno, ibra, Bob ).
Have you seen this, btw?
LOL, that graphic is da bomb. That’s quite the keen eye the artist had there, I never noticed.Quote:
Saul is a real catchy character. I read the makers of the show might consider doing a spin-off about him, I think that would be cool. (Because honestly, I always wonder just what the hell Saul does all freaking day. It seems like he has always some shit going on…) And he really is quite the sly dog. – Though admittedly, Laser Tag might not have been THE best idea. xD
And yeah, gotta love the grumpy old man’s sarcasm. I really like Mike’s two-sidedness in regards to how he strictly separates work [i.e. cold-blooded and thoroughly operating killer] and family [i.e. loving grandpa]. (Much akin to Walter, but in contrast to him Mike knew better to set his priorities. Walt kinda lost sight of what’s important in the end, Mike not so much IMO.) I also found it interesting how humane and soft he became towards Jesse; I liked their relationship a lot. It felt like Mike was watching over him, just like I had hoped for Walter to do…
Oh, why would they do that?
WHY WOULD YOU GUYS DO THAT!?
Don't know if you know already, but not many hours after we talked about Homeland and possible additional seasons, it was renewed for a third season.
Now time to speculate even more
I've never thought about that comparison of Walt and Mike that you brought up, but I like it! Even though Mike is ruthless and calculating, he's strictly professional. Walt, on the other hand, gets a real high off of his misdeeds... especially in the later seasons. He revels in the power and in his victories. He totally gets off on it, unlike Mike, who I don't believe gets any pleasure out of it. Mike simply does what needs to be done. I also agree about his relationship with Jesse. Even though Mike would never be outwardly emotional toward him, there was a definite softness there that was nice to watch.
I don't know why they did that, but !!!!
oi thegoods what's the most embarrassing thing you did in your life?
Ehhhh, I don't know that I want to reveal the most humiliating moment in my life. Sorry, scav.
