Just binged this season last night. Totally noticed that, though in BB they mentioned it was 10 years old. The show does details right, like I think I mentioned, in Season 1 his daughter in law's car has PA State and Emission inspection stickers on it. You have to be from PA to notice, I did in a second.

Same Mexican doc that later patched Mike up as well it appeared.

I loved last night's episode.

Michael McKean (Chuck) deserves an Emmy.

Actually I was feeling that this Weirdo Chuck was getting a bit tiresome but it was a good "Caine Mutiny" type thing at the bar hearing.

I was done with him by the middle of
season 2. It's what the writers did in
BB, stretching out the series with
meaningless side stories about the
sister in law shoplifting, or the 'who
gives a damn' affair Skyler had.
The Chuck story should have ended
12 episodes ago.

I think you should give up on the show. It's clearly not for you.

You have to take the good with the
bad. Whole sections of BB were mind
numbingly boring, like the all the
scenes with the drugged out friends
of Jesse. They just went on and on
and on. Or the episode where Walt
is trying to kill a fly. That one is best
in FF, you miss nothing by seeing it
in real time.

Watching TV is an art. Or you can sit
there with your mouth hanging open,
unblinking, thinking everything you see
is relevant to the core story. It's not,
it's stretchhhhhhhed to add more
commercials and more episodes so
they can get enough to go into
syndication.

I always hated that episode with the fly.

But there are lots of people who loved it.... I'll never understand why.

I think it was indeed overly long but it did represent realism and that is a value of and in itself. You inhale meth fumes or you 'test' your product too much and you start doing things like that.

But you can show that in a segment, you
don't kill most of an episode with it.
Vince Gilligan is a master at inane BS
that has nothing to do with anything.
You can lose every scene with Skylers
sister in BB and the series would lose
nothing.
