See? IT'S IMPOSSIBLE ISN'T IT?!!!

I love all your selections. I think that was inevitable though! Haha! I think I would like to try and do this too! I suck at graphics though. So that could make it tricky. Yours are so pretty!!! ♥

Yes, it's absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to just pick 10. Ask me again about my top 10 in a week and it will have changed!

I haven't done graphics in years so that was a little harder than I expected! Thank you for the nice comment! I'd love to see your Top 10! Graphics don't matter. ;)

I'd love to see you do a Top 10 too, waltz!

This is gorgeous gorgeous work, Lune! Thanks for linking to my own Top 10 even if its not half as pretty looking as yours. I love that flair of red in the 'Say My Name' graphic and all the blues in 'Salud' and the green of Walt's shirt in 'Face off' and the lovely desert tones in '4 Days'. I'm off to reblog all these on Tumblr if I haven't already!

We have a lot of the same favourites. It really is impossible to do a Top 10 without leaving out many many episodes I love. And like you say, some episodes run into each other, like Pilot/Cat/Bag and Phoenix/ABQ and Half/Full Measure and Crawl/Ends/Face. They are all such excellent little mini-arcs, it's tough to pick just one episode from the run.

But 'Fly' is my precious. I love that you are a Fly lover too. I'm a little sad that Peekaboo didn't make your list only because I'd have loved to see you do a Peekaboo montage, particularly of the Jesse and Little Spooge moments.

I'll have to update my Top 10 after S5 has finished. Or maybe just do a Top 20 instead.

Oooh, speaking of favourite Breaking Bad episodes...I've had an idea. I was thinking when we get to March Madness season we could do a big Breaking Bad episode poll tournament with fans voting for their favourite episode. Call it 'March Badness' :D I could start with a series of 8 polls, grouping the episodes the same way I did for my Walt/Jesse recaps (so S1 and S5 on their own and S2, S3 and S4 in two halfs). Then the top episodes from each poll could go forward into the next round and so forth until we have one winning fan favourite episode. I'll have to check with the Mods if it's okay to do on BB_comm but I'd be interested to see the results.

Thanks for the nice comment and re-blogging on tumblr! *hugs*

Peekaboo!!!! how could I forget Peekaboo!! darn. Yes, it's part of my favorite - maybe not top 10, but definitely deserves an 'honorable mention' darn. I'll update my post. It's the episode that marked when I really got invested in Jesse.

I can definitely do a Jesse and Little Spooge montage. :)

I love your poll tournament idea!! Let me know if you need graphics. I'm having way to much fun with them. Can we place bets? Mine's on Fly taking top prize.

Hmm. I wouldn't bet on Fly winning. It's too much of a marmite episode. It might go far in a tournament but I think a lot of fans would vote against it. Crawl Space seems to be a big favourite in some fan circles, though I find that one a bit over-rated (aside from the chilling final scene). Mind you, LJ comms do seem more pro-Fly that other places on the web.

I'd love to see a Jesse & lil Spooge graphic from you!!

Thanks. :) I debated a lot about what to include in my top 10, but there was never any doubt that Fly was number 1.
