I believe it was described as "veggie bacon" and according to Walt Jr. smelled like bandaids

True, Chuck's electrical allergy is psychosomatic, and by definition, I guess, that is a form of mental illness. However, he is not mentally ill in the broader sense of brain diseases like clinical depression, schizophrenia, or bi-polar.  Those are usually understood to mean chemical imbalances in the brain that affect thinking in every area. 

All thoughts, though, are chemical reactions, so why wouldn't thoughts of having an illness that doesn't exist represent a chemical imbalance that affects thinking?  I do, however, think Chuck's constant need to be right & his issues with Jimmy are independent of his illness, since I think the show made it pretty clear that these aren't new characteristics of Chuck's personality.

ETA: I love soy bacon!

I have to agree with this. The suspense level on this show is very very low at the moment. It got less suspenseful when the Mike/Gus storyline became more fleshed out. We know the eventual fates of every person on that side of the story except for Nacho. And we know where they stand when Breaking Bad Begins and ends, there are really no questions to be answered. So while it is is cool to see all those character again, what is their to accomplish by showing them? And I also do not see the purpose of telegraphing that Nacho will be the one to eventually put Hector into a wheelchair. I feel that it would have been a lot more effective of a shock to just have him do that when it actually happens without any foreshadowing. 

The two biggest questions of this series are still what happens to Chuck and Kim and that is really what the show ought to be focused on.

So much this.  When BCS first started, it wasn't Breaking Bad: The Prequel. Now half of each episode is about the drug trade in that city in NM that I can't spell, and as of now those stories do very little to forward the story of Jimmy/Saul.  But it's making every viewer except me and possibly the above commenter very very happy, so I'm guessing it won't stop any time soon.  

Edited to add:  I've finally had a chance to read Tara's recap, and I agree with what she said about "watching the show wrong".  That's how I feel every time I have that tinge of annoyance that we're back with the drug people, when apparently I'm supposed to be thrilled; I'm doing it wrong.

I never got the hate for Skyler. I found her much more sympathetic and palatable than Walt.

Off topic for this show, but 100% agree!
