Snoskred Notes –

The definition of Kafkaesque for those who are interested – Basically it describes a nightmarish situation which most people can somehow relate to, although strongly surreal. With an ethereal, “evil”, omnipotent power floating just beyond the senses.

I love the teaser for this episode – love the chicken brothers ad, plus I like having that background info of what happens with the meth once it leaves the lab.

I also love the outfit Jesse wears for much of this episode, great tee and hoodie with a lot of awesome detail. I am such a fan of his outfits overall.
