Us Rating: ***1/2

The acclaimed series returns with crystal meth-maker Walt (three-time Emmy winner Bryan Cranston) grimly waiting for his captor, drug lord Gus (Giancarlo Esposito), to kill him and cohort Jesse (Aaron Paul). Though their tense situation is undermined a bit by the jarring switches to comical shenanigans involving Walt's wife (Anna Gunn), by hour's end viewers will be floored by a gruesome killing -- and hooked again by this artful, mesmerizing chiller. (AMC, 10 P.M.)
