The show glorifies meth somewhat.

Next season Walt will turn fully evil probably.
People seem to ignore that drugs can be wonderful. You feel great after taking them. And then you feel like shit and most of them destroy your body and are extremely unhealthy but to depict drugs as something completely negative would be unrealistic. And this is coming from someone who never did drugs.
Really? How about that scene in the 2nd season, I think where they did that fast montage of that prostitute daily life?
How about the scene where Jane overdose?

Lets talk predictions. I'm not sure that Walt will take Gus' place, even though that seems like where the show is heading. Seems too predictable, though that's where my money is. If that happens, at least one of his immediate family will have to die - hopefully his wife, but I'm thinking his son, too - to make him over the edge, break any rationalizing notions he may have of acting defensively, and make him full on intentionally evil. Hank is gonna die as well, regardless of where they take Walt, and his rock collection's going, too. Err, minerals. Sorry.
The big question now is what will be danger. Hank, obviously, but with Gus and the Cartel guys interested in meth gone, something else will have to be introduced. Gus was running a big organization. So I'm thinking someone will take his place and Walt will become a target either for revenge, or as a cook (although at this point I don't see why they would want to keep making top quality blue meth). Either that or Walt will throw his hat into the ring, if only at least in his mind - to protect himself and his family, but really it will be because he's power hungry. Basically, a lot of people will have to die next season. Maybe even Walt himself, as in the last episode of the Sopranos, and that will really make the ambivalence we have towards this character apparent. We sympathize for him, bu he's a bad guy and as a result of his choices and actions - to cook meth as a starter, around 1000 people have died.
A couple airplanes full of people, around 12 he's personally killed, and not to mention the casualties in the war with the cartel...
This scene was amazing.
How about how throughout the entire show they have cheery musical-montage bake sessions;
the fact that it explicitly shows that if you're fed up with your life you can resort to destructive chemical drug dealing; etc.
