Last night was a pretty solid episode. The guacamole scene and the video tape "confession" was quality TV. But that said, I really wish they just get to the punch line already.
PS: I hate the Jesse character. He's the weak link of the series. I know what they are trying to do with his story arc "reverse Walt", but give me a break. I don't buy any of his "breaking good" nonsense...
Nobody cares what you think; you didn't participate in the murder an innocent child.
You have to power through the first half of the first season of Mad Men. I think it is one of the greatest shows in TV history, but agree with your assessment of its beginning. In fact, I bailed out of it when the first season originally aired and went back to it a few years later after the hype really started. It gets much better.
I will have to give it one more try one of these days.
You'll forgive me...I was mad about the mini season last time; total belly-flop going in; and coming out. It was a table setter; and I was not ready for the series to go out in it's own blaze of glory. This article smells just like my dissappointment from last year. I will pass; although I'll sneak back to it.
But as the many capable minds here have inferred (you too), in order to have a unique "blaze of glory" (a glorious one :hellyes: ), you need to build that tension.
It's easy to criticise; I choose to let the pot simmer.
