    I've just started rewatching Oz (well, I'm already at season 4). It's been a while since I saw it the first time, but you can tell it's a HBO show. A lot of actors from their series in it.

    there was no foreshadowing, it is on record that the episode was filmed to get under budget.

    Jesse is the man... Don't hate on him. Yea, he's a b*tch at times, but he was my favorite character.

    Unbelievable acting by both Paul and Cranston... as well as the rest of the cast too.

    I'm gonna go back and marathon the show pretty soon. I have so much other stuff I need to watch, but I feel like I need to see all of BB close together. I started it probably 3-4 years ago.

    Jesse is the classic "everything is someone else's fault, blame everyone else, I am the victim, why is everyone against me" drug addict. And he is not a b1tch "At times" he is a b1itch most of the time.

    Jesse's charter in the show hit home with me, he played that role perfectly.

    Oh for sure. We have all known people like that. The actor did an excellent job.

    That may be first season Jesse (who was supposed to die at the end of the first season anyway) but that part evolves as they craft his persona over the seasons to where his melancholy is utterly justified..
    Jesse is a tragic figure of deception/manipulation by Walt (with Gale, Jane, Brock etc.) and will generally do the right thing but so often not in his own best interest - but of course in the best interests of Walt. Even in shedding Walt towards the end he falls into more tragedy and manipulation with Todd's crew.
    If anyone on that show had a right to ***** and moan it would be Jesse.

    Nah. I liked his character because you could tell he was a good kid that got mixed up with the wrong crowd. And he always wanted something else and approval from his parents, but the drug life/crowd was all he knew. I have a friend who's been like that.

    There would've been no Heisenberg without Jesse.
