Probably a common question / post but which episode do you think is the greatest / stands out the most?

It’d probably be Chicanery, Winner, or Bad Choice Road for me.


Flat-Lifeguard-1566

My top 3 aswell. Although bagman is definitely up there to.


PC61600

The standout second for me is Kim's airbag. Scares the shit out of me every time I see it.


GuruWitch

Gets me every time!


cuppairishtea

On the BCS podcast, they said they shot that sequence in reverse (Rhea started with her face in the airbag and then sat back up). One of my favorite tidbits from the podcast!


internetrando12

I love JMM and Bad Choice Road.


russellzerotohero

Bad voice road gets my vote


12frets

“Bad Voice Road” would’ve been a good title for the episode where Jimmy sings karaoke (“Winner Takes It All”)


internetrando12

Here's a question: why is Jimmy's voice so lovely when he sings Bali Ha'i but so terrible when he sings The Winner Takes It All?


GalaxyGray

He was letting Chuck win.


12frets

ACTING!


internetrando12

lol, yes! Maybe he's just more of a showtunes kind of guy.


Moonchildbeast

I think the scene is to emphasize how Chuck is supposed to be better than him at everything, and how he winds up stealing the show. Honestly I don’t think a person could be as bad at singing as Jimmy seems to be without trying. I always FF through that scene. He’s cute with Bali Ha’i and he’s ok with his rendition of “7 million dollars of cash in the trunk,” so yeah, he’s faking the bad singing.


internetrando12

That is such a great episode. BCS really feels like two separate shows most of the time, so it's satisfying when the two shows finally become one.


Genghis_swan69

Although there’s some that I’d probably like better, Five-O was definitely up there, Banks’s acting was so compelling and captivating, tht episode definitely deserves more praise


12frets

Agreed. That was Eugene O’Neill worthy.


rasputinspastry

It's hard not to agree with those who selected Chicanery, but Season 1 Episode 6, "Five-O" stands out in a strong sense as well. Seeing the back story of Mike Ehrmantraut and how his past experiences have changed his life dramatically and probably for the worst was so impactful. We witness first hand his vengeance upon those that murdered his son, but also the careful and masterful way that he planned the event affording a window into his future endeavors. In the same episode we see the extreme pain etched across the face of Mike as he details out how his influence and actions have robbed him of his son and a father and husband to the only family he has left. Mike is without exception a very stable and non-emotional character, but in this episode we see that this is a half-truth (half measure anyone?). Mike isn't unemotional, the simple reality is that between Vietnam, being a crooked cop and then his compelling talk with Matty before his death, Mike's soul is simply calloused over. The shenanigans of Walter and Jesse are troubling but relatively insignificant when compared to his past. This is why I think Five-O is just amazing. Rasputin

Chicanery, Winner, JMM and Bagman


sidn3yprescott

Winner. Called it my favorite Episode the second I saw that ending


SSP9891

Bad Choice Road


tomer25561

For me the best episode is 508 'Bagman' just incredible all around.


cerebrallandscapes

Bagman is also a decided turning point of the show smack into that really dark territory that BB occupies. When I watched it my jaw dropped and I felt like shit just got so real.


tomer25561

I couldn't take my eyes off the screen the whole time. Amazing episode.


MiketheFullMeasure

Yess!! **Bagman** forever!!


[deleted]

Besides the common ones being listed, I find S1 doesn't get enough attention


orangeodity

Chicanery is the best episode of television history


jhz123

Mr Robot s4e7 would like a word lol


ItsKnightTime101

I love Winner and Chicanery, but Bagman is still the one that stands out to me the most, in the best way possible


MiketheFullMeasure

No wonder!! The best BrBa vibe throughout BCS!!


ItsKnightTime101

So true. I always compare that one to 4 Days Out


MiketheFullMeasure

Yes!! In either one the characters found themselves within conditions to fight teeth and nails for their lives, and the Bagman environment was even harsher than that of 4 Days Out. There was the spirit of Jack London present, The Thirst for Life namely.


saddadstheband

Winner


JustinianKalominos

Probably Chicanery and Bagman.


tjizness

For me probably Chicanery, I broke my boy or Tell Me Again


tonysoprano1569

Bad Choice Road. The last scene was the most intense scene I have ever watched in TV history. "Tell me again"


Ok-Today-7628

Bagman, period.


nikiduncan1

The last one, season 6 may hurry up!!


smart-or-luck

Pimento.


LthePerry02

NO ONE has said Wexler V. Goodman? Wow


o0Loiter0o

Five O


ihavenoideawhatisit

Winner or Bad Choice Road


Dull-Fun-8534

I don’t know the names but for me it is when Chuck is humiliated in court and then kills himself. Also when Lalo managed to flee from the assassins


SnooEagles4791

S3 E5

Chicanery and Five-O


waifurummager

TreWestMusic

Chicanery, Winner, Lantern.
