Unraveling 5x10, "Buried" (i.e."My Head is Spinning")

Funny story, I didn't get to this BB until 8-21-13. What kind of junkie of I, afterall?  EXISTENTIAL CRISIS OF REPRIORITIZING!!!!

Deja Vu all over again, all over again, all over again

Primary Tao: Where the full circle starts to close in on itself

  • Taos: 
  • Breaking Bad is like J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. The "Blood Money" represents the all-powerful and all-consuming precious. Jesse may be Frodo/Golum.
  • Profound photography reifies the concept of Ying-Yang 
  • Light is Wrong, Dark is Right; inversed equation also rings true
  • Aside from the myriad shades of gray, every vibrant color of the rainbow speaks powerfully to a truth; as they always have
  • The tenth episode of every season (expect for the 1 that didn't have more than 7) is a pivotal turning point, of narrative and style.
  • The men were frail and conflicted Macbeth's and Hamlet's; the women were the controlling Ladies
  • Michelle MacLaren is one of the finest directors that ever directed anything; as important to the show's product as Gilligan and writing crew, Slovis, and Cranston.
    • ..maybe more important
  • Vince Gilligan had a cameo! Hitchcock it up, buddy; you've earned it!

...more to come...
