How did this shit even get OK'd?

How did this shit even get OK'd? He fricking threw that shit at his own feet and it exploded with enough force to toss an air conditioner down the street. Did he think he was invulnerable or something? What would've happened if Tuco had died? How did the police not see him walking away on security footage and bring him in for questioning? What the frick was he thinking?

    >NOOOO WHY ISN'T THE PULPY COMEDIC crime DRAMA COMPLETELY REALISTIC
    Breaking Bad isn't perfect but this is the biggest midwit argument against BB on this board, every fricking time. It'd be different if it had established itself as a serious, grounded drama from the very beginning, and then descended into whacky antics. Right from the start we had autistic shit like this, Tuco himself is a borderline cartoon character.

      Breaking Bad was always a goofy live action cartoon for adults.

        It’s a live action cartoon in the same way the sopranos is.

            Sopranos is a wily coyote cartoon where you’re waiting for Tony to receive come comeuppance and most of the tension derivatives from that. Breaking Bad is similar in that the audience is morbidly curious as how far Walt will go to exercise his ego and prove to others he knows best. The stakes and circumstances trying to conspire against him are ridiculous as well as the reliefs he gets by blind luck (his brother in law is dea and has the intuition of a brick until it’s literally spelt out for him)

              But your comparison of the Sopranos to a Wile E Coyote cartoon is based on themes and morals. Whereas in case of BB, we have scenes which are directly lifted from a looney tunes cartoon. Case in point, Gus walking out straightening his tie and then dying. It could perfectly fit in a Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck cartoon. The same with it's not le meth scene or those goofy assassin brothers.

                Dunno sopranos always felt like heightened reality to me. Best I could ascribe it to would be a cartoon, but you could easily call it a drama with moments of levity and surrealism. Some episodes like the whacked guy getting away and never being brought up again come to mind. Another is Tony literally watching the news for updates on Junior being arrested again too unbelievable but it works in the context of the show.

              I was never waiting for this. Is this how leftists see Sopranos or something? Genuine question.
              I saw Sopranos as a case study on the death of masculinity in the modern world. That fact that you can only express masculinity through crime and violence is not an indictment of Tony.

                It’s not a genuine question if you’re gonna put me in a camp for stating my opinion. You’re watching because something has to happen if he gets away it’ll feel anticlimactic and contrived, if he succeeds you’ll feel uncomfortable routing for a morally reprehensible person. That why it ended the way it did. Ambiguously so people can reason their own ending. Because as you stated people are going to take away different things from the character study.

        The show was reasonable until then. Everything else you listed is just "rule of cool" shit you'd see on any live action drama that isn't trying to be super serious HBO shit, but Gus walking out and straightening his tie was when it became an actual cartoon.

            pharmas make 100% pure meth and have done so for over a half-century. It would be simplicity itself to hire a former worker and pay them a shitload to tell all.

            That is one reason this story was rejected by so many networks. Vince made it all about the violence and drugs but it was really because it was so full of holes it would never pass as a crime drama, which everyone thought it was gonna be.

          It's not the fact whether the machine gun could work or not, but the fact that they were killed in such an over the top way using a plan which consisted of so many variables for it to be successful.
          If the nazis made Walt park his car in a place not parallel to their house or actually checking his trunk, the entire thing would be useless

      Former partner offered him the job with full medical benefits but he refused because of pride.

      It was always gonna be full of plot holes.

      Gus was the worst offender. He had a chemist who was happy to make 96% pure meth with no hassle but he hired the brother in law of a DEA agent instead because muh extra 3%

    Such a strange show to think back on. The slow pacing, long takes etc presented a confidence, that I and everyone else took to come from them 'knowing what they were doing' in a story sense. It's like someone saying 'Hey. Stop. Listen to me...' and making a point of making an intense look at you for a long pause. When the thing that they said didn't seem like a big deal, you'd think that you just needed a minute to let it sink in...you'll 'get it' in a minute... You'd be pissed if you found out later they just made something up off the top of their head during the pause and that's why it didn't really amount to much. You would not listen to them again
