    Love the recap. Rob, you need a hair cut. Love ya, bae!

    • Antonio Mazzaro

      Rob told me he’s growing out the “Jimmy McGill” look.

  • So pumped!! I’m ready-ready

  • rojeezee

    Am I the only one who noticed the interesting art work in his new office? Open for interpretation due to its abstract style but I thought it looked like a guy slipping. He was also asked if he wanted a new painting but it’s like he begrudgingly wanted to keep it. As if, he’ll never be able to get rid of slipping Jimmy.

    SG Was Here… gave me the chillz… that and the switch thing are such great character moments! Anyway, lets do this! BCS Season 2 !!! #WelcomingSaul was it? Or #WelcomingJimmy ? It feels dark… The ending of season 1 felt dark already and it keeps heading that way. Even though I don’t like romance shizzles (I secretly do) I was happy for a second when they finally did it… but inmediately that relationship felt incorrect. They are good with each other, but not good for each other. And Kim gets it (sorta), and Saul will continue to torture himself over her a bit, like in season 1… But the switch is turned on right now !!! And you can never turn it off anymore… it wont last long… SG will come at last !!! ( Chuck Come Back! )

    Great pod guys… Looking forward to future episodes since now you can also incorporate the “Talking Saul” stuff. Also FYI, the iTunes version of tonight;s pod was cut at 37 minutes for some reason…

    Also, regarding the timeline, the Corky Romano reference tells us that this last episode took place after Oct of 2001 and Breaking Bad didn’t take place until 2008, which means there is roughly about 5-7 years between Better Call Saul and BB.

    I’m inclined to think it’s closer to 7 because, I think Corky Romano fades from memory pretty quick – that reference definitely has an expiration date.

    • Antonio Mazzaro

      haha it might, then again Kyle Wins is convinced it was a big hit sure thing lock, so maybe a dated reference says more about this guy’s level of dumb than it does about a specific time frame.

      • Charles Bikle

        Something I noticed on a rewatch, when Price brags about his Hummer H2 being new, the H2 was first released in 2002, so maybe we can peg the timeframe to 2002-2003.

  • Charles Bikle

    Also, just after that one reference to Corky Romano, Chris Hardwicke has already produced another recap show based on the movie:

      Gerund, noun. Book it.

    Thanks for the podcast guys. When Breaking Bad ended, I can’t recall the culpability of Saul. He helped Walter go on the lamb and arranged a place for him to hide. Was Saul ever connected to Walter White by the authorities? I watched BB as it aired only and need to do a series rewatch.

    Brings me to the part of the conversation comparing Jimmy flicking the switch and Gene not opening the alarmed door. I think it’s pretty straightforward. Jimmy could stretch the limits of rules without much blowback, Gene could not because it may equate to jail time. Notsomuch an age or maturity thing, maybe more of a serious consequence thing because of Gene/Saul’s possible connection with Walter?

    • Antonio Mazzaro

      This is a good observation (that Jimmy could do what he wants whereas Gene can’t even open a door).

      I am positive that Hank and others knew that Goodman was Pinkman’s attorney (Saul bails Jesse out when Hank has him in custody in late season 5 when Hank already knows about Walt.) Jesse’s prints would be all over the site of the gang shooting from the end of the series, ergo Saul would be wanted at least for questioning in connection to this. He’s also well known to the underworld as being connected to Heisenberg and Jesse. He’s got to be as afraid of the cartels as he is of the cops for sure.

      • TrentC

        Thanks Antonio. I can’t remember how connected Goodman was to other characters in the Breaking Bad world. He always seemed to be two steps away from the main action. I must be missing one blatant piece of connectivity as he had to reinvent his entire life and make the Cinnabon prediction come true.
