Breaking Bad - Season 4 Episode 2 Review

I was a little disappointed with this episode.  The main thing I kept thinking was that time was being wasted.  What I mean by that is there is so much good content that can be packed into this show and they are using precious minutes drawing out scenes that are not that interesting.  For example Jesse and the party.  I understand they want to show he is trying to block out everything with the music and the people, but do we really need to watch people dancing and listening to music for 5 minutes?

Another thing I noticed is that the show is a lot different this season compared to previous seasons.  Gone are a lot of the things I love from past seasons.  Hank is out of commission.  He and Marie are on bad terms.  A little drama is good, but we don't want to seem them like this.  The police department has not been shown much.  What are they up to?  Where's Gomey?  I miss the school setting.  Can Walt go back and visit?

It was nice to see Badger and Skinny Pete, was that his name, back as well as the eyebrows guy from the car wash.  I have a feeling Skyler is going to be able to buy the car wash somehow. 

I'm not really liking Mike right now.  What is his problem.  Walt has got to take care of this guy eventually, as well as Gus.  I do miss Heisenberg.  We saw a little of this when Walt put on the hat when he was going to Gus's place.  That was awesome.

I still have a lot of faith in this show.  I just hope that year off didn't make it lose the magic it had before.
