but then again, so was Omar, and he was the best thing by far on the Wire.
True. I also feel like they will both end their superhero run the same way. Obviously, that's just a guess.
I feel like Walt is more of a bumbling "hero" than a superhero. Obviously, he always seems to come out ahead, but I don't feel like we're supposed to think that it's because he's so good--like we are with Mike. Of course, it helps that we've seen Walt work through and nearly fuck up all of his schemes, while Mike just appears on screen and shoots someone through a wall or hangs a stuffed pig on the door. Walt's clearly very smart, but he still strikes me as a goof who has fallen ass-first into everything.
With no one after him so far, Walt has got to be the full-on villain this season. The first two episodes have been hitting that pretty hard with his creepy grabby stuff with Skylar and Jesse.
