The Death Of Mike

Breaking Bad - The Death Of Mike

From: “Say My Name” – Season 5, Episode 7

"In season 5A, as we call it, the character of Mike gets brought down by Walt in a moment that Walt himself I don’t think sees coming, and it’s just a sad moment, beautifully written and directed by one of my oldest friends, a writer named Thomas Schnauz, who I’ve known since NYU film school, and in his first professional directing gig he just did a fantastic job with that episode and that scene."

"And of course the two actors, Bryan Cranston and Jonathan Banks, killed it. Just did a wonderful job. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house that day."

I thought Saul is not a very good actor and the part could have been played a lot better. I thought the death of the chicken guy was way overdone and not as real as the rest of the series. I would substitute when he killed the kid in the basement, and when the twins crawled on the ground to the altar. Both realistic and believable More

I'm sorry but THE greatest BB moment was when Jesse snorted the Meth, grabbed his gun and went to go kill those two drug dealers, only for Walt to take them out in spectacularly gangster fashion! Awesome moment... More

The infamous 'I am the danger!' speech. Walt avenging Jesse with the explosive in season one. MAGNETS BITCH! YEAH! Walter did it. The Lilly of the valley reveal. Season 3 finale. I think its the best finale so far! I loved it! More

7 The penny drops at the end of S4
I loved the train heist episode, especially the consequences form it but I think my favorite part of the entire show has been the last 5 seconds of season 4. Walt you bastard. More

9 Yes
Gilligan has all the best bits down to a T. These are honestly the best parts in the series, very memorable and poignant in their own ways. Great choices. More

Too many to mention for me, but a few that stick out have to be Gale's death, Hank's showdown with the twins and the Crystal Blue Persuasion montage. Genius. More
