Tips on How to Reconcile Differences — Breaking Bad Season 2 Episode 1 Review (Seven-Thirty-Seven)

The first season of Breaking Bad was great, but felt at times a bit rushed and lacking in finesse.  Some episodes seemed too eager to have defining moments which ended up seeming tacked on while others struggled at time with the tone.  Really enjoyable season, much better than anything I would ever write (except for… Continue reading Tips on How to Reconcile Differences — Breaking Bad Season 2 Episode 1 Review (Seven-Thirty-Seven)

Tips On How To Avoid Conflict – A Breaking Bad Episode Review (Season 1 Episode 4 – Cancer Man)

Despite the joke in my title, that final scene with Walt blowing up the car was my least favorite part of this episode.  After the very focused tension of the last two episodes, the show did need to step back and identify what the path forward was going to be.  Cancer Man did that job… Continue reading Tips On How To Avoid Conflict – A Breaking Bad Episode Review (Season 1 Episode 4 – Cancer Man)
