It's a genuinely funny, interesting change of pace for the show with some small but important character moments. It's so strange to me that people hate it, especially since Bryan Cranston is so damn good at physical comedy."Fly" is one of the best episodes of Breaking Bad
Agreed. Breaking Bad was around the time I started to notice the trend of people overhyping the fuck out of what they liked, and acting like anyone who didn't suck it's dick 24/7 were uncultured idiots.The trailer of the new Breaking Bad movie has been circulating for the past few days and I was reminded that I tried getting into the show but found it extremely boring
The most hated episode of Lost, "Exposé," is actually fucking great.
At the beginning of the third season the writing really started to dip in quality (remember the entire episode devoted to Jack's fucking tattoo?), and the writers added these dogshit characters, Nikki and Paulo, into the show. Everyone hated them. They had soap opera-tier actors who couldn't measure up to the rest of the cast. It was insulting as hell to the audience that we were supposed to believe these two were always there in the background with the redshirt survivor extras for two full seasons but we just never saw them until the big name characters started acting like they were main cast-material. They never had anything to do except tag along with the rest of the real characters and pretend to be just like them, almost like someone's obnoxious kid brother. Dreadful stuff.
But, halfway through the season, the writers clearly decided to course-correct, and part of that process was devoting an entire episode to the destruction of Nikki and Paulo as, I'm certain, a symbolic way of saying "we're sorry" to the audience. They're revealed to be not just shitty characters with shitty actors but shitty people with clichéd motivations. There are laughable flashbacks to iconic earlier scenes where they're literally doing shit in the background (with other secondary/tertiary joke characters) right where they won't be noticed in the original shots. Billy Dee Williams shows up in a hammy, weird role. And then some snake paralyses Nikki and Paulo so the main characters think they're dead and accidentally bury them alive. It was fucking great.
Initially I thought that, had I been watching the show week-by-week, I might have hated the episode. But nah, I would have loved it even more. Because it was proof the writers hated the direction the show had taken and were going to fix things.
I got one even better.Season 5 of Bojack Horseman was overly dark and way too heavy-handed in what it was trying to do. Todd being ~asexual~ is completely pointless, they just don't know what to do with him anymore since he doesn't add to the main storyline. He should have just been written off halfway through season 4.
I'm not at all excited about season 6, way too much feminist crap was in 5. Especially Diane and...some other random black bitch who had no reason to reappear after the Oscar plotline...talking about what they ~have to do because they're women.~
