  • I’ve been suggested many times to watch Breaking Bad during the course of the last two seasons of Better Call Saul. I gave it a few tries to go through the show but never succeeded besides finishing the first few episodes of the first season. However I am really enjoying watching Better Call Saul. Jimmy McGill character and the drama between the two McGills,,, the show’s perspective on the legal world and how they can twist it with Slippin’ Jimmy and all that, I just love it. Until now I absolutely had no problem watching it without watching its prequel. Although I may not be able to enjoy those moments for BB fans I am still all in for the show.

      Another big BCS fan here – who never really watched BB when it was on (though I have since gone back and watched several “key” BB shows and the final 1/2 season). I’m sure I’m missing the occasional Easter egg or hidden message – but that’s what this podcast if for 🙂 . What drew me in to BCS is the amazing acting and storytelling. I know several BB fans who don’t like BCS nearly as much as I do….

  • I just found your show, mostly because I watched ep 301 was was really bugged by Mike’s cars. No one seemed to notice, not even you guys, that Mike was driving a station wagon, took it apart, found the tracker, and then had a different car in front of his house. Yes, I recognize this sedan from earlier episodes, but we are to assume that both cars had trackers placed in them?

    In an effort to find solace in this lapse in continuity, I listened to several other BCS shows and I really like yours. Well done. Keep doing it. You enlightened me on so many things that I saw or didn’t see, thought about, and didn’t.

    Thanks guys. You rock.

    Ooooh, if they integrate Gus into Mike’ side of the show, this is gonna get great.

    Great show.

    As far as a potential redemption arc goes, I see that as a possibility wrt Gene. However, even if Kim reappears again in his life, I seriously doubt any serious relationship would be rekindled. After all, if Kim is hung-up on getting a client under suspicious circumstances, how could she ever be with someone who has enabled and cooperated with Heisenberg, a mass killer and ruthless drug kingpin?
    If he somehow meets up with Kim, isn’t there a danger she turns him in? There’s good chance she would see him as irredeemable…

    Another thing: Gene’s VERY limited in how he can redeem himself — and not just where Kim is concerned either. He’s wanted man and can’t practice a profession like the law given the need for secrecy. Unlike WW, who we knew had a limited time to what he felt needed doing, Jimmy’s ultimate fate is very unclear. I think Jimmy’s fate will determined by some character trait that will lead him down a particular path — just like WW. Gilligan usually lets his protagonists fall only AFTER the full effect of their decisions unfold. So I definitely see some expanded format for the sequel/epilogue sequence. Maybe it will not be a whole season. I do see, however, 3 or 4 episodes being devoted to the wrapping up the show, though. We’ll see, I guess.

    Again: love the show.

    Maybe AMC has a larger financial stake in Into the Badlands than Better Call Saul. I read somewhere that AMC preferred Walking Dead to Mad Men or Breaking Bad because they owned a piece of Walking Dead. Wouldn’t be surprised. It’s called show business not show friends. And Hollywood makes lots of crap but are happy as long as it makes $$$. Especially hen it has its of SFX, explosions, car chases, etc that translate well overseas. As opposed to dialogue, period pieces, costume dramas, or prestige pics. Studios would rather more Transformers, Avatar, Ninja Turtles, or Fast+Furious. As compared to Oscar winner’s like Moonlight, Crash, Hurt Locker, etc.

  • Just finished the second episode. This is so heartbreaking — the last 2 minutes.
