This is why we can’t have nice things, Breaking Bad
! I mean, really. I’d send you to your room if I weren’t afraid of you.
The first hint bad things were afoot was the strange cold open, which could have been from a Spielberg
film. A dirt biking kid finds a tarantula in the desert, stupidly plays with it, then puts it in a jar. That’s it. I was expecting him to stumble across a corpse or something, but no, we get this quiet slice of desert childhood. The only hint we have of anything going on is a train whistle in the background, but it means nothing to us. Yet.
