Seeing the New Jersey "Housewives" playing nice feels like déjà vu all over again.
"Breaking Bad" is all about lies people are willing to live with, and it's not in anyone's interest to ignore the many factors that feed the ugly backlashes to female characters.

Jacqueline is obsessed with changing her body, but has no regard for her overall well-being. If anything needs to be cut out of poor Jacqueline, it's not excess skin: It's the darkness and pain that has taken over her mind and clouded her vision.
This is the second or third episode of this season so far where a lot happens in the plot, and yet it feels as though the show is spinning in place. There's an odd weightlessness, even as seemingly momentous things occur on screen.
