I thought this episode was incredible (I do have a soft spot for TV episodes that take place in one particular area--it really stretches the writers' creativity in dialogue and character interaction). Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston really pulled it off in this episode, and it was just full of hilarious dialogue ("A robot", "Ahhh, a wire!" and "No, really pull. Not like a girl" "Pull this!" are just a few that come to mind).

My favourite episodes are also the ones that take place in a particular area, the episode with Krazy-8 in the basement and the episode in Tuco's uncles house are two of my other favourites.

It shows how good this shot is that even though you know by the end of the episode they will get home, your still holding your breath every time they try and get the RV started.

Also, the twist at the end of the episode was played of amazingly. Even though it had to happen, I was completely shocked when it was revealed that Walt had gone into remission. The acting in that scene by his family was great aswell.

Ditto for me, I "knew" it had to happen eventually, but it still caught me by surprise in a weird way. Great acting/writing/camera work by all involved to make that scene work as well as it did.

I liked this episode a lot as well, to be honest it might be my favorite of the second season so far.

I'm probably the only one, but I thought "dune buggy" was funnier than "robot"

Upon a second finding, the dunebuggy bit was hilarious.

"we'll just take a bunch of parts from the RV........and make a dunebuggy or something!" That made my dad laugh out loud, and he usually doesn't watching TV or movies Smile

This was a fantastic episode, but then again, every episode of Breaking Bad is fantastic.

Having two characters in a confined space makes for excellent drama if the balancing act never tumbles, and this episode pulls said act off flawlessly.

You really get a good sense of despair, yet a good sense of the father/son relationship that strongly drives the show, too.

this is a superb episode, though I thought it was merely ok when I first saw it. It took a re-watch the other day to realise how great it is. the writers really deserve an emmy for their work on this show, this ep in particular.
