I didnt think it was out of character. Walt has always shown that he has 'ocd' (i use the term loosely) about certain things, eg the scene mid-season where he meticulously folds some paper to make the table stop wobbling.
The episode built lots of suspense and had interesting direction, epscially at the start of the episode. it gave a very weird vibe to it, like there was a sort of impending doom.
I legitimately thought Fly was a great episode.

this season was pretty awesome, especially the second half. I just hope it doesn't get too popular and they decide to make more than 1-2 more seasons.

Same here. Maybe it is "artsy," but the entire show is very artistic, and continually relies on objects and metaphors to tell the story. This episode was just sort of an extreme of that, and I thought they did it incredibly well.

it was interesting that they gave the (outside) director this episode to work with. obviously he made as much of a directorial "stamp" as you can in a television show.

Artsy or not, I found it much less entertaining than the other episodes. Otherwise, it was pretty much flawless

Can't believe I have to wait probably at least 9 months for more though, sucks

damn!!!! that was the last episode??? FUUUUUUUU!!!!!

best season yet if you ask me! the "fly"-episode was a bit weak, but whatever...

also, i always hated hank, but now i think he's pretty decent!

They either spent too much money on previous episodes, or needed to pace themselves given their budget for future episodes (or both); so they made an episode with limited amount of expenses (few actors, few sets, etc) in order to save some cash.

Season 3 was great! I had only seen the first couple episodes of the first and second seasons but decided to watch all of season 3. that shootout with Hank was so intense and the entire last episode was great. cant wait for season 4

Fun fact: "Fly" was done by Rian Johnson, who wrote and directed Brick.

And I agree, Hank is the best.

Gus is insane. That strange calm as he got dressed..goddamn.

Can't wait to see the fallout over that Lab Notes book. I hope it doesn't go into Dexter territory with ridiculously unbelievable moments every episode. I mean I enjoy Dexter but this should be something different, not a will they get caught or won't they sort of thing.
