Storyline

Walt is suffering from insomnia, worried about the choices he has made and the direction his life has taken. Unaware that Jesse has been skimming a bit of their product, he also worried that the numbers in his formulas don't add up and that they always seem to somewhere between 4 and 8 ounces short of what the batch should have produced. The meticulous Walt is also concerned - to the point of paranoia - when he discovers a housefly in the lab. Worried about contamination, he goes to extreme lengths to kill it. Jesse comes to his rescue in an interesting way. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Jesse talks about a TV show on hyenas that he saw. He says the head hyena was "the Man" and how gross it was that the other pack members had to "lick his junk" to show respect. Either Jesse or the script writer didn't realize that among hyenas the females are actually dominant, including the leader of the pack. They are larger than the males and have other marked masculine physical traits due to a naturally high level of testosterone. If Walter knew that, he didn't bother to correct Jesse's mistake.

One of the best.
31 May 2010 | by jikidhahSee all my reviews

By far the best episode in season 3. Yeah, they don't appear to do much, but that's hardly a negative. Instead of the usual running and gunning, this episode offers a deeper view into the souls of both of the main characters, a point upon which this show has always been the strongest (remember the interrogation episode?), as opposed to the often weak action and thriller scenes, like the unbelievably unrealistic fight in the parking lot and the two main antagonists involved in that.

So, please more of this kind of character inspection/building and less of the yawn-inducing melodrama. It just saddens me that quite a lot of people seem to count this as the weakest episode. Hopefully the makers don't listen to that kind of criticism too much and turn this into a more actionish and Heroes-kind-of cheapish thrills and surprises show.
