    Yeah, that's why he starts to burn the money. Because avaricious people contemplate burning their money, never spend a dime of it on themselves, and sacrifice themselves for others.

    The plane crash was what is was. What would you call that?

    Ummm...I was the person who claimed they were stupid and explained why it was bad writing. Then you said they were fatally stupid and tried to spin it as some reason for their death. Well, yeah, no shit they died because they were idiots. The problem is that they were shown as some of the most efficient hitmen in a drug cartel, then they arrive and are completely incapable of killing an unsuspecting chemistry teacher. That's why it's bad writing. That's my entire point.

    I think I'm generally pretty relaxed about insults on this forum and try to respond with reason no matter how much I might disagree with them (especially because this is after all just an Internet clothing forum). But this thread changed to personal hostility a while back and my use of words like 'dope' wasn't meant strictly to insult people but mainly because it's just easier to refer to some of the well, dopes, as such. I avoided using 'fool' to avoid confusion with my reference Shakepeare's jesters (who are often very insightful).

    Well look, there are any number of ways I can get it online. Hell, I could even Oatmeal it if I wanted to. Just would like to see it right when it hits the air. No waiting.

    Yup. Bullshit move, in my opinion. AMC didn't want to pay for two more seasons, so they split one into two to draw out the ad revenues, not giving a shit about the fans of the show.

    As you can tell, I'm not a fan of that network right now.

    I'm not sure this is in line with the facts. Didn't the creators of the show want to end it this season? That's what I read. If so, it has little to do with AMC not wanting to pay for another season and more to the fact that the creative team behind the show are ready to wrap the story up.

    I get why someone would be upset that they are splitting the last season in two, but that's a different issue then the network not wanting to foot the bill again.

    You could say that but the way they were always spinning it was they were splitting the final season in half and making it span two years. Just semantics.

    If the creative team behind the show considers it a single season, then it's one season. That's what matters.
