BREAKING BAD
July 29, 2012  | By David Bianculli

AMC, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
Last week’s opening of this season’s second episode, with its German-language scene set inside a food-science manufacturing laboratory, was a marvel of singularly different and daring TV writing. (Thanks, Vince Gilligan!) And by the end of that episode, a major new character (Lydia, played by Laura Fraser, right), and new motivations and conflicts, had been established, setting the stage for tonight’s hour. Which, by the way, is the first of this season’s batch that I wasn’t sent in advance, so I’ll be watching just as eagerly, and nervously, as you. Against the best drama on TV, the Olympics can wait.
