The Great Train Robbery. A classic theme in film. And wonderfully executed here by the Breaking Bad crew. The show stays at the top of its game, delivering a tense hour of television in 'Dead Freight'. And no show can deliver a gut-punch quite as effectively as Breaking Bad did at the end of their most recent episode.
Poor little Timmy Tarantula...
It's always nice to see "Friday Night Lights" alumni getting roles (Battleship and John Carter aside), and Jesse Plemons definitely makes his mark here as Todd. Is his character as cold-hearted as Mike or even Gus? Or is he just naively trying to show his worth to the crew? Time will tell.
But did you know an alternate ending to this ep exists? One where it ends on not such a sour note? Well too bad, here it is anyway.
Prettayyy, Prettaay, Pretty, Pretty Good.
I found this to be hilarious. I hope you do too. But then again, you could plug the Curb music into just about any video and make me laugh.
