I love this video montage of cooking. 8th Episode of season 5.

Best episode? What do you all think?

The pilot (first episode) really. Beginning and end of the series were by far the best to me -- although I liked it all, the middle couple years sorta dragged on and got away from what made it a cool concept--guy with terminal cancer who had limited time to do what he had--or wanted--to do.
The middle seasons got away from that, but they all their moments--I liked the episode where Jesse shot Gale--sorta of a moral point of no return.

One thing the series never really addressed that a lot of fans were wondering--why did the brilliant, ambitious mastermind "settle" for being a high school teacher (I mean no disrespect to teachers, and was sorta bothered when parts of the show implied that were anything wrong with being a teacher--just that Walter started and ended his life with different aspirations, so what got off track?)

It was implied that the Schwarzs screwed him over.

The episode where Gale was shot was very good, a dark episode, but it was a dark series overall.

One of my favorite moments was when they broke into the Albuquerque PD evidence compound in season 5 and used that giant magnet to wipe out the hard drive.

He was a good man who got f*#ked over by his friends and life and had to support his family and pay the bills.
It's the most important point and part of the entire series in my opinion.
We could talk for hours about this part of the story alone.

The most powerful episode for me was when Hank was shot.

I missed some of and three and I think I'm going to go back and watch all of them.

Absolutely unreal TV.

I just read Crime and Punishment a few months ago and Breaking Bad is its equal in my opinion.

Wasn't the fact that Walt 'lost' Gretchen to Elliot the reason for Walt leaving the biz?
