So It’s no secret that I’ve been in my cave since last Tuesday binge watching Breaking Bad. I mean, it’s all I’ve been talking about – even to people who don’t watch the show. I must say the fact that I finished four seasons in less than a week and be caught up to the latest episode is quite impressive…. to me. Lol, I’m sure that just sounds like I have no life, which I can’t really deny. Hey, I recently finished 3 quarters of organic chem in 8 weeks so it’s safe to say I don’t mind not having a life these days. Blame my teacher, who mentioned it during lecture and talked about it for long enough that got me and my friends interested to have a 7-hour marathon where we watched the entire first season in one sitting. And then they went home and I proceeded to watch the rest by myself, always on the verge of a heart attack because of how stressed this show makes me (in a good way!).
I really don’t keep up with many TV shows anymore and I only ever watch sitcoms because they are 20 minutes and not hard for me to sit through. The only real show I still watch is Pretty Little Liars and I honestly don’t even enjoy it because the plot sucks so badly and I only continue tuning in for the hot cast. So for me to have so many feels for Breaking Bad is a big deal! I can’t remember the exact moment I knew this would be a brilliant show and that I was gonna love it big time, but it definitely had to do with Jesse, who is hands down my favorite character. Not only because Aaron Paul’s portrayal of him is incredible and I am just in love with Aaron Paul in general, but the character development of Jesse really gets to me. He’s definitely the one I sympathize with the most because you see how he gets manipulated over and over again by Walt who he’s always been loyal to and you see him becoming so dark and more depressed with each season. I definitely miss the simpler days when he said funny things and was more carefree… There were several moments that really got to me but definitely when he had no choice but to kill Gale – that pained look on his face broke my heart. And not to mention I love Gale. He was so eccentric…
I really hope Jesse gets a happy ending and I really hope he doesn’t get killed off but I’m nervous since he was originally supposed to die four seasons ago… Plus I think when it comes down to it, he’s no match against Walt who is such a sociopath now and even though I do believe he genuinely cares about Jesse, I think if Jesse becomes an obstacle, Walt will not hesitate to eliminate him and that makes me soooo sad because Jesse was always so loyal to him despite the friction between them. Although with the recent turn of events, who knows what Jesse’s gonna do now. I also really hope he finds out about Walt’s involvement in Jane’s death although I’m not sure how that would come about.
I stopped rooting for Walt awhile ago so I’m really hoping he loses somehow. I also want Walt Jr. to find out. That would be so great. I hate seeing him so clueless all the time and now that even Hank and Marie know, Jr.’s gotta start becoming more suspicious about things too.
Man oh man the promo for next episode is driving me crazy with anticipation. Part of me is so glad I caught on to this show this late in the game because I got such a high off of binge watching the series that I can’t even imagine having to wait an entire week for each new episode if I had started watching the show earlier. Although I’m gonna have to do that now for the next five weeks and it’s already driving me mad. I could barely function today because my routine for the past five days was wake up and proceed to watch Breaking Bad until I knock out at approximately 4AM. I’m glad I finally caught up but I feel so empty now… I wish I bumped my head on something so hard that I forget everything so I can rewatch it all. I’m already anticipating the withdrawal I’m gonna have after the whole show wraps up. Lol it’s gonna suck… But until then, every day is gonna be a countdown to the next episode. And to cope I’m gonna binge watch cast interviews on youtube. Or maybe just compilations of Jesse saying ‘Bitch’. Yeah… this is my life now. No regrets.
Also, I can’t stop wondering if hydrofluoric acid can actually dissolve human bodies? That seems farfetched to me… But I was only a B student in ochem so who knows.
