    Better Call Saul

    Like you guys, I am strongly considering trying to forget about this show, until it's over so I can binge watch it. If for no other reason than that's the way I prefer to watch shows these days.

    I think they made Jimmy so obvious about watching that dude, on purpose. These writers don't make mistakes like that, without a purpose.

    Any other good series you guys recommend binge watching? I just watched all the Ray Donovan's. Liked it up until he almost single handedly took out the entire Russian mafia.

    Yeah genius, the most Breaking Bad thing in the show so far.

    The way it all came together with the same doctor providing the meth who later on patches up Mike in BB, that big extended shot showing the super strict DEA checks in episode 8 of the last season so we know they are fucked.

    It took me a day to get that that the start was a flash forward to when Fring has taken over and it's the same pair of shoes years later...

    The Jimmy plotline is fine but I have to say that the Mike stuff is cooler at the moment.

    Oh and any last doubts as to the total cuntiness of Chuck are gone.

    Ernesto is related to Fring. Fring kills Chuck.

    The Cinnabon place is close to where Kim said she is from, it ends with a black and white scene where they meet could be happy or sad.
    Ok well #1 looks sound, it's also possible that the Chuck cuntiness extends to fucking over Kim too. The montage of her sleeping at the office was maybe to show that she is already working at 100% so having to take on Jimmy's case too will push her over the edge.

    She should maybe take on some help like young Ernesto as there must be money coming in?

    If Jimmy ends up being disbarred because of the legal troubles Chuck got him into, that could be reason enough to open another law practice under a different name. He might have to forge some documents so they say "Saul Goodman" instead of "James McGill". Or else hope nobody ever checks (like Mike Ross on "Suits")

    Yeah it was one of the best ones.

    I expect we're going to now get a bunch of Mike, Gus and Tuco stuff which should be cool too.

    When they showed the bus bench in the opening credits, I was thinking that might be an indication that Jimmy was going to lose, be disbarred, and this would be the beginning of him creating the "Saul" identity. Obviously it turned out pretty much the opposite. Well played, Jimmy.

    Really enjoying this season. Lots of BB characters showing up. Nacho is an interesting character. Doesn't he end up on Gus' side of things? I assume Hectors health goes south { ding.ding} and Nacho ends up on Gus' side. Perhaps he adds a little something to that pill Hector dropped and puts it back in a bottle?Had forgotten about the Lydia character. Cool to see the beginnings of the meth lab. How long til they write off Kim? Great show.

    So Jimmy didn't really win in court after all? I'm not sure how they could have sided with Chuck after his meltdown on the stand. And as I called it last week, we have now seen the debut of Saul Goodman... though not exactly the way I expected. Probably we will see Hector go down by the end of the season, I'm guessing from a massive stroke, knowing how he ends up in a wheelchair with only that damned bell as a way to communicate. Whether that stroke is induced by Nacho spiking his heart medication is entirely possible, of course.

    Jimmy only being disbarred for 1 year was the best result they could hope for which is why he and Kim were celebrating.

    The only mention of Nacho in Breaking bad was when Walt and Jesse , Saul (mistakenly thinking that people sent by a person named Lalo are holding him at gunpoint) says "it wasn't me, it was Ignacio."

    Nacho is short for Ignacio.

    You may be thinking of Victor who Mike saw driving away from Frings restaurant. He's the guy who gets his throat cut by Gus to make a point. It's easy to forget sometimes just how ruthless Gus can be.

    So then it looks like the game plan here is for him to be an advertising salesman for a year, to pay the bills and keep the law firm running for Kim's sake. Then when his suspension is over, he will return to law practice, but he would presumably be keeping the Saul Goodman name. Might this be because Chuck is clearly in the middle of a major mental break, which will probably damage the ability of ANYBODY named McGill to be taken seriously as a lawyer?

    I don't know if I missed a few minutes of the episode or what, but did they show where exactly it was that Chuck was heading for when he was walking around the streets in his space blanket hoodie, tripping out on the neon lights..... or do they just fast forward to him being in either a morgue or padded cell next week, without showing how he got there?

    Jimmy's trick with the battery has made Chuck realize on some level that his condition must be psychosomatic so he decides to try and get over it.

    First by holding a battery and then by walking down streets surrounded by electric lights. Having got to that stage he then called the psychiatric doctor who had previously been treating him back when he was hospitalized a while back.

    I assume that his need for revenge is also giving him strength.

    I was thinking Nacho was the watchdog for Gus at one point while Walter cooked..

    I get the feeling after last nights show that Kim is getting weary of Jimmy's underhanded ways..She is sympathetic for Chuck..This spells the end for her somehow? She packs up and goes instead of dying?

    Yeah, Kim seems to be feeling a bit guilty. She likes Chuck, despite what HH&M did to her, and doesn't like the way this went down. If she finds out what Jimmy did at the malpractice insurance agency, she's gonna like that even less. This might well cause her to leave town, and will be another piece in the puzzle that results in Jimmy resuming his law career under the Saul Goodman name.

    If Nacho ends up working for Gus, it might be because Gus will agree to leave Nacho's family out of the business. As opposed to Hector who is trying to force Nacho's father into using his business as a front for the drug operations, which is why Nacho is planning to spike Hector's heart meds (and probably reduce him to the bell-ringing quadriplegic mute)

    I could see Stranger Things jumping the shark pretty soon, I hope I'm wrong.

    Game of Thrones is back next month.

    Jeez, I hope not, enjoyed the first season....
    Started watching Six feet Under, and re-watching Curb Your Enthusiasm again for the first time since watching it, forgot how much that show made me laugh....Except for that season with the Seinfeld storyline, that was crap if I remember right....
    Game Of Thrones should be good....

    Well, this season ended pretty much as I suspected it would. With Hector presumably having his big stroke (or whatever it was) that turns him into a quadraplegic with a bell fetish. And Chuck seemingly taking himself out - though fire was not the method I thought he would use... I actually thought he would electrocute himself accidentally when he was knocking holes in all of his walls.

    So is Kim gone now too? Is this when she moves back to Nebraska (guessing that's where she went so they can eventually "flash forward" to her and Jimmy meeting up in the present in the last episode of the series)

    It's funny that Gus saved Hector again with CPR after saving him from Mike earlier. He has to stop people from killing Hector because they aren't doing it right.

    What I don't get at the moment is that if Gus wants to kill Hector in a horrible way how come he doesn't manage it over the next few years before Breaking Bad.

    Maybe he thinks the wheelchair/bell situation is worse punishment for Hector than killing him.

    Did anyone notice the lantern in the intro flashback is the same one that Chuck kills himself with?

    What I don't get at the moment is that if Gus wants to kill Hector in a horrible way how come he doesn't manage it over the next few years before Breaking Bad.

    I think it goes back to Hector making Gus look at his first dead chemist bleeding into the pool..Gus always wanted Hector to look at him when he killed him..Realize it was Gus that killed him. Im guessing after the stroke Gus wont see him much? He was hiding away with Tuco in BB..
    I didnt think much of the lantern bit at the beginning tying into Chucks " demise"..great writing again to tie it all together.
    Also just realized, I think the receptionist hired by Jimmy is the same person that plays her in BB.

    Yes it's the same woman - Francesca.

    She is also just about the only person to beat Walt extorting $20k from him for info on how to contact Saul in Season 4.

    I'm definitely going to do a rewatch of BB at some point - that was a hell of an episode as I remember.
