Stop. You had us at Ron Moore, then you throw in magic!? We're so there.

I wouldn't classify it as a "throat-clearing" kind of episode, because, even when treading water, 'Breaking Bad' still retains its intensity and sense of drama. But after the first three rollicking episodes, it was interesting to see the show take an hour to collect its thoughts and linger for a little while.
(S02E13) Cause and effect, random selection, grief, life and death... "My father is my hero, he's just decent." Breaking Bad covered all that and more in the season finale, setting up Walter White's life after successful surgery that bought him more time. The question was this when the end credits rolled, what will that life be for the New Mexico science teacher after all that's come before?
Anyone out there who thinks they know is lying because only creator Vince Gilligan has a handle on what's been going on and what's to come. What we do know after watching the season finale is this: Breaking Bad is as good as any other drama currently on television, and that includes Lost, Mad Men, House, 24 and the other potential Emmy nominees for Outstanding Drama Series.
Once again, a fan wrote in to get some help remembering a show. This question brought back a lot of memories for me and it probably will for most of you as well.
Dann Chenn writes, "So, question about an old show from the 80's. I have no idea about the title. Not even a particularly good show, just remember watching it. The story revolved around a family that started off on a tour of the Egyptian pyramids with a questionable guide. While crawling around and earthquake hits. The guide takes off, family trapped, but some how, some way, they wind up in some alternate universe. This short lived series followed them going from town to town, running from some evil, officer of the law trying to stay one step ahead."
