best season yet. it’s going more and more towards the godfather mold – jax is the heir to the throne, body count rises towards the end of the season, jax is shown to be a great strategic thinker. finally in these last two seasons we see jax getting smarter. one of the reasons (besides the bad acting which i’ve mentioned before) that jax will never be as sympathetic as walter white is that for most of the series he’s not nearly as capable or smart as walter white. i’ve mentioned this before as well – audiences respect characters who are good at something. even if they are awful people, we respect their skills as outlaws if they are demonstrated to us. up until season 4 we don’t see jax as being all that smart. clay, too, has been given an upgrade in the intelligence/strategy department.
otto plays a bigger role this season and his character takes some dark turns.Watched on TV
