I recently finished this show in its entirety for the first time. A perfect show. Great from start to end. What was so watchable about this show is that there is very little padding or filler. Many shows, even great ones, will sometimes feel like they have subplots or episodes that are there for the sake of filler, but not here. All of it feels justified and adds to the overall story. A lot of shows will tend to lose track of what made the earlier seasons beloved towards the end, but this show manages to find fresh and exciting new ways of keeping the story engaging and is one of the few shows that improves itself with each subsequent season. Each character is memorable, fully defined and has something to offer. The narrative and character arcs across the five seasons are executed phenomenally, and the last few episodes are some of the most satisfying payoffs I've ever seen in a TV show.

Casual Person

One of the best television shows ever. Great character development and performances all around, and the show managed to get its main characters out of tense situations without ever feeling contrived.

Not a bad episode. Gripping from start to finish

Seven Thirty-Seven - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: At the end of the episode when Tuco shows up at Walter's house in the backseat of Jesse's car, he tells Walter to get in. As they drive off, the shot pans out to show the street sign across from Walter's house. The sign says Piermont, which is the real name of the street. In the show, the Whites live on Negra Arroyo Lane. (00:48:00)

Show generally

Question: Just how does Walt intend to explain the presence of all that meth money, even posthumously? Just how does he think his heirs will react to that, how is he going to launder it? How does he think his wife and kids will explain it? If they knowingly inherit and use such money, they could face charges of accessory after the fact. Is this ever addressed in the show?

Chosen answer: I'm not sure how far you are into the show but he does eventually come up with a way to launder it (wont spoil it for you but rest assured, when he gets a lawyer the show gets much better!) and in the final season he also comes up with a way to give his children his money without the cops or the DA knowing it came from him.

Answer: Walt decided to buy a car wash to launder his money, which makes a profit without the dirty money. At the end he blackmailed Elliot and Gretchen in to giving his money to junior and Holly. However 90% of his $80m is stolen.
