    Blimey, how fast does your hair grow? I think since the show started on his 50th and given around a year has past, so the flash-forward is approximately a year away.

    I love it when shows perfectly teases with time jumps. Reminds me of Lost.

    Maybe Gus' past has come back to bite in the ass?
    Ah yeah, that's a good point. I just took it as at some point in the future, as he's changed quite a bit. Then filled that in mentally to be a few days/weeks ahead. Not a year. But yeah, to get your hair back from the baldy look you'll probably need a good few months.
    It could just be a wig. On account of him needing to change his appearance and all.

    I think the birthday tradition with the bacon shows that it really is his birthday. Especially after watch the "4 seasons in 10 minutes" video showing him do it in the first season.

    Basic fake ID rule - use your own birthdate, easier to remember when questioned.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Is it possible the teaser at the beginning is actually the conclusion that happens next year? FFS I hope not.
    I did wonder if that will be concluded this season or next year. Hope it's this year.

    It wouldn't really work if it was a fake ID for underaged drinkers, though.

    "yeah, I was born in '96... fuck"

    Then you change the year and you only need to memorise that.

    I know. I just thought the "use your own birthdate" was amusing. :)

    I remember faking it to go see Face/Off, and I almost fluffed my fake birthdate. Or maybe I did fluff it, and the cashier decided to be lenient. Anyway, good times!

    epi was like GTA:

    drive to mike, mike cutscene, go get the magnet, drive magnet next to building, oh no van is fucked, escape

    gta should hire bb writers or vice-versa

    I liked the ep quite a bit, but last year set the bar so high I couldn't help but feel a little underwhelmed that the season premiere was essentially a caper episode. Last year was amazing b/c of the tension of Walt being under Gus's thumb. Now that Walt's on top, how will you bring about conflict? I guess the flash-forward showed us a glimpse of that. In BB I trust til proven otherwise.

    The early episodes are generally a little low-gear though, interweaving the strands before Walt blows the strands the fuck apart! Typical first episode of the season in many ways, what with the time jumping and low key nature.

    Gus will be missed though, he's one of the true bad-guy icons from TV and Film. My Dad still refuses to believe he's dead, he argued the point to me today, saying that he hasn't actually been confirmed dead yet and may pop back up soon. I reckon it's somewhat unlikely.

    If he's ruined something for you, then stay away from the thread, or else it is your own fault.

    Why are you even reading the thread anyway?

    Get bent.

  • Deleted user 18 July 2012 22:31:33
    Not hard to spoil a post is it? Especially as he is clearly talking about something that happened at the end of a series that has only really just been made available to people in the UK. Don't be a tool again.

    Nope, but it's also not hard to forget to do it.

    That's why we stay out of the thread.

    Also, you didn't even ask him to put a spoiler tag on it, which means that you don't really care if another spacker comes along and gets it spoiled for themselves.

    The thread is about a programme I'm enjoying and one that is currently on the last season available, so it is pretty fucking obvious that not everyone will have finished it. But you know that, because I don't think you are as fucking stupid as you are determined to look, you just want to have a go.

    Bob, don't be an prick, spoil your post please.

    I thought this thread used to have a US pace disclaimer on it, on account of the show only really being available to filthy pirates? Yoho.

    Yeah, I thought so too. Guess it changed since it became available on Netflix n stuff. I've always treated it as being chock full of spoilers though and stayed clear until I was up to date.

    Might be worth adding the US pace disclaimer again? Doesn't make much sense there being a UK pace thread since nowehere is showing it afaik.

    Well, technically I think mowgli's talking about people on netflix US pace, so maybe we need 3 threads.

    Speaking of which, I just last night finished season 4. Jesus Fucking H Titty Christ, I think Breaking Bad is probably the best TV series I have ever seen. The lack of exposure it gets in the UK is a tragedy.

    I actually kind of wish they hadn't gone on to do a 5th season, as that could have been a perfect ending point for it. Bit like in Supernatural when wossisname averted Armageddon by jumping down a hole and went to hell. That could have been a great ending for a series, but oh no, let's keep going. Invent a new bunch of characters and a backstory that means we can keep flogging it. Bastards.

    This show isn't even shown in the UK so why the need for a US thread?
    Inevitably any thread discussing the show will have spoilers for someone.

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    Having three threads is a bit daft. It's common sense Netflix is going to be behind broadcast.
    I really need a sarcasm tag.

    @Razz, I was actually sorely tempted to do just that, and kind of regret I hadn't now.
