The Oatmeal

Well would you look at that. Bald dudes are fucking scary on Breaking Bad. Never noticed. From Marie’s long hair and her Purple Purple Purple to bald ass Tuco Salamanca and his unfiltered sociopathy, this theory fits like a glove.

Haven’t done a Breaking Bad recap in a few weeks but here’s what I’m taking away from the first 3 episodes of season 5:

Mike is the motherfucking man. Absolutely one of my favorite TV characters in history. I don’t think I’ve ever seen another character go from a secondary, minor role to the main focal point of a show like this. I mean think about it – Seasons 2 and 3 he’s just Gus’ muscle. Scary bald dude who’s constantly trailing Walter. Then all the sudden he delivers the monologue of a lifetime in “Half Measures” to end season 3. Season 4 he’s the most bad ass dude on television. And now in season 5 he’s an integral part of the whole operation. Nothing would be possible without him. Its like every episode your allegiance slowly transfers from Walter to Mike.  He’s the loving grandpa. He’s loyal to his guys. He follows a certain code despite his criminal lifestyle, almost like a Dexter syndrome. And he delivers absolutely unreal one liners with that slow calm monotone voice.

“Just because you shot Jesse James, don’t make you Jesse James.” Amazing.
