I legitimately believed simultaneously -Loved that guys acting. Todd has a lot of borderline "Mindhunter" qualities about him. Watching his character, and how Jesse realizes how "off" he is, was great.
Schrodinger's gun. It's both loaded and unloaded until Jesse makes a move.I legitimately believed simultaneously -
1. The gun has no bullets and Todd's fucking with him. If Jesse fails the test he's going to get the beating of a lifetime.
2. The gun is loaded but if Jesse tries to use it Todd's going to use the Instant Transmission, teleport behind Jesse, and give him the beating of a lifetime.
Honestly, I'd trust Vince Gilligan with whatever at this point, he's more than earned the benefit of the doubt. But Todd isn't really like the other people on the show. Like, Saul was a piece of shit, he did or enabled horrible things to be done. But even before better Call Saul, you could see his layers and confliction. Todd is just that guy. I love the actor and the character is good for what it is, just not sure if I want a story about the white supremacist teen who murders and enslaves people, while having whacky hijinks with Badger and Skinny Pete.Maybe it would get old but my thinking is just like Better Call Saul there is a short time frame where it's from young Todd to when Todd met Walt and Jesse at the Fumigator. You should be able to keep a pretty tight story and the character in a way is hilarious with how dead eye he is.
Think it's more that I wouldn't be surprised if Gilligan returns to this universe he's created and if so what would be an interesting spin-off? Originally everyone wanted a Gus Frings one if I remember correctly.Is there actual talk of a show with "Todd"? Or is this just speculation/ideas?
I took a criminal justice class in college a LONG time ago and I seem to remember the professor, who was a cop, saying that most shootouts are misses.Finally got around to watching this. Really good and really unnecessary. Basically, Vince flexing. I'll take that over most of the diluted crap that's being pumped out these days.
The two welding guys talking to each other like they were cops...was that just for the audience? They didn't know Jesse was there. I'll have to watch the scene again, but I swear they were acting like it was a crime scene after they shut the door on the nosy neighbor.
I really like handgun shootouts in Breaking Bad are 90% misses even at close range. Can anyone comment as to how close to realistic this is?
