With only a few episodes of Breaking Bad left, the show’s normal level of quality has been suffering a drop off. Last night’s episode, Rabid Dog, is no exception.
Walter White rushed home after getting a warning about Jesse Pinkman to find Jesse’s car parked on the gravel front lawn with the driver’s door open. Inside the car, Walt found a CD covered in meth dust, as if Jesse needs to be under the influence of crystal meth to do something spontaneous and stupid.
Once inside the home, Walter pulls out his tiny revolver and starts to look for Jesse. When he steps into the livingroom, he discovered the carpet is soaked with gasoline. He discovered this not by smelling the gas fumes as soon as he walked in the door, but by the squishiness he felt under his Hush Puppy clad feet. With that much gasoline spilled in the White home, not only could you immediately smell the gas, you would actually be able to see the fumes with your eyes.
When I see something as ridiculous as this, gasoline that doesn’t produce obvious noxious fumes, it makes me wonder what else is not factually accurate. That’s a real shame. Now I wonder if I don’t really know how to make crystal meth from watching Walt and Jessie in the RV. I may have to grab some Sudo, find an old RV, and crank out a batch just to see if I know how to do it.
