I'll take Dexter. Homeland I am not a huge fan of, I mean, I watch it, but yeah.

I am looking forward to my guilty pleasure Revenge, however, which apparently will have a Sunday night slot, so there's that..

The music on this show is brilliant. Not merely with regards to its quality, but how it relates to the storylines.

Not sure how someone could not know the first half ended a week ago, but I found someone who didn't.

Damn near broke her heart.

You guys, last night I dreamed that I was Skyler, trying to hide from Walter, who was coming to kill me.

I kept going to all the neighbors - all of them had elaborate pools and were having pool parties. Most of my hiding places were underwater. It worked. I managed to survive until I woke up.

(It was really disturbing, you guys. )

Actually I didn't think it was bad at all. A different take on the thing, to be sure, but he raises some interesting questions.

And this part is yet another area we've been asked to suspend not only disbelief but common sense:

"Finally toward the end of the fifth season, Walter is forced to explain to a new organization that customers will pay more for his product than, say, one that was 85 percent pure. The other manufacturer seems to accept Walter’s logic even though, as an ostensibly experienced dealer, he should know it doesn’t make any sense"

Not only does it not make any sense, it's not what happens in the real world, period.

I actually liked the article when it focused on the economics of the thing, but when it started with the white supremacy thing... It quickly turned to bullshit.

People tend to over-analyze this show. There was an article that tried to present the premise of the series as a metaphor for the failed War on Drugs and it was very poorly written.

He's not overanalyzing the show so much as how it's narrative seems to generally fit what is a fairly recurring theme in TV shows and movies: "white person enters a world supposedly beneath him where he doesn’t belong yet nonetheless triumphs over the inhabitants" (to quote him)

And that's hardly a "bullshit theory" or even novel idea, he's not the first to think it.

Not everything has to be about race and racism. Since he draws comparisons from The Wire, that is a show that successfully adressed some of racially oriented cliches and managed (mostly) to avoid them.

If anything, the presumption that the world that is "beneath him" is predominantly non-white - since we are talking about New Mexico and not West Baltimore for instance - smells far more of stereotypical racial grouping than this supposedly deep analysis of "white guy always prevailing". Now, this is something that can appear in some shows, but Breaking Bad clearly had powerful, intelligent figures that were both white and non-white.

He tries to prove his point based on the scene where Jesse is explaining the Mexican scientists what to do. It is a poorly written scene - in fact, the whole plot device of Jesse suddenly becoming very reliable and Gus seeing "loyalty" and potential in him - is one the main reasons why I rate season 4 lower than many people - but the racial undertones are non-existent IMO. There are zero racial stereotypes presented in that scene, and the scientists could have just as easily been white, black, mulatto etc.

Walt connecting with Aryan Nation as another "proof" of white supremacy made me laugh.

He completely ignores the fact that the first really good meth cook in the show's chronology is Gus's Los Pollos partner, who is not white.

I thought Gus was trying to make Jessie loyal so he could first use him against Walt, and then if Walt had to be bumped off, Jessie could still cook.

Made sense to me at the time.
