The pace of season 3 has reflected Walt's headspace.
Well, I guess this is sort of what I meant. Walt currently has no purpose -- he's gone pretty much bonkers, acting irrationally and wandering listlessly. And the pacing certainly reflects that. I'm not necessarily calling that a negative, and it's almost assuredly the right choice in the long run. But this show is much more compelling when Walt has a goal he is trying to achieve, and after the break-into-my-own-house-to-force-normalcy gambit failed, it became clear that all his efforts this season were for naught. The high stakes haven't been there.
The season has definitely been good so far, but I don't know if it has been entirely playing to its strengths.
