On Breaking Bad, a big piece of the Walter White puzzle that drove a seemingly mild-mannered chemistry teacher to deadly drug kingpin, aside from his cancer and generally milquetoast life, was the need to regain the millions he lost when he bowed out of Gray Matter Industries for a measly $5,0000. A life filled with regret and the unrelenting feeling that you've been cheated out of a fortune you helped create can drive a man to do some crazy things.
Honestly, I have a love/hate relationship with reunion shows. Part of me is so excited with anticipation to see what my beloved characters are up to now, but there is always such a letdown when it just isn't the same as it used to be. So I was more than a little skeptical about this pseudo-Seinfeld reunion on Curb Your Enthusiasm. However, this show just really nailed it. Having the stars playing "themselves" talking about their characters was sort of this trippy meta thing that really worked out better than I ever could have expected. I was practically giddy when they all wound up in the same room together at the end.
Just call him Bad to the bone.
