Crazy Credits

When the opening credits begin after the first commercial break, the names of the first three actors appear in the normal sequence with normal timing. At the moment when the name Dean Norris would normally appear, the camera shows Walt looking at his own reflection in the rear view mirror. The name does not appear, and Walt turns the mirror to the side. The camera focuses in on the mirror's new reflection, an empty spot in the New Mexican desert. We then see Walt pause for several moments. Finally, as Walt begins to move on, the name Dean Norris appears on the screen. See more »

I'm still sitting here...
18 September 2013 | by benjamiserSee all my reviews least 10 minutes after ep14 ended. I don't know why, but I've spent the last 10 minutes in a bit of daze wandering around IMDb reading other people's reviews of BB and this episode, until I noticed that already over 10,000 people have voted on the ep, and it has scored a perfect 10.0. Not 9.9, but 10.0. Which means virtually not one person gave it a 9.

I don't know why, but this has snapped me out of whatever dream world I've been in. I mean, NOTHING anywhere on the internet can boast this form of universal approval. It's impossible. You could ask 10,000 anonymous people what they think of murder, and you can guarantee that a higher percentage than you think will not be so black and white. Life is always, ALWAYS, grey. Nothing anywhere in human society can unequivocally say with 10,000 out of 10,000 certainty that what they say, who they are and what they stand for is perfect.

Because let's face it. That is exactly what that 10.0 means. That the cast and crew of BB have created the single greatest 46 minute piece of entertainment ever. EVER....

There are two more episodes to go. BB has taken me on such a ride over the past 6 years that I just don't want it to end. However that's not how life works. All things must cease. It is right and proper and in keeping with the natural order of things.

But at least I can say that I've seen the impossible...
