S05E09 - Bad Choice Road

The penultimate episode of season 5 does a great job of setting the table for what's sure to be a bloody finale, assuming this season follows patterns established in previous seasons of Better Call Saul. We express our love for Lalo the cat-man and Kim the wonder woman and dig deep into the character trajectories to make our final predictions of the season in S05E09 - Bad Choice Road.

S05E08 - Bagman

In this episode, we follow Mike and Saul into the desert and watch them slowly wither away, while Lalo continues to rot in jail. Sounds like a real banger, doesn't it? Well, turns out it was pretty good and we're here to talk all about it as we discuss S05E08 - Bagman.

410 – Winner

Jim and A.Ron have mixed reviews for AMC's Better Call Saul's season four finale, "Winner". We're a house divided as to whether "Winner" did enough to justify this season's at times uneven pacing and anti-climactic storytelling. Still, neither of us think the season was bad by any stretch, and this episode has tons of great scenes; the end of Mike and Werner's working relationship, Kim coming to the realization that she's just another in a long line of Jimmy's suckers, Jimmy breaking down in his Esteem at the fundamental injustice he feels he faces in society. Whether it all adds up to a compelling whole is a question everyone has to answer for themselves. Regardless, we'll be back next week to wrap things up and entertain counter arguments and theories for what territory Saul will be treading next. See you then!

409 – Wiedersehen

Jim and A.Ron are excited to see a return of tension and intrigue with the latest episode of AMC's Better Call Saul. The traditional Jimmy scam gets a Kim-style twist that was very well executed. Don Hector receiving his bell was perhaps unnecessary, but it was really fun to watch. The drama with Werner and the explosives and his ensuing escape attempt fueled the episode with much needed suspense. Finally, Jimmy and Kim's roof-top blow-up was as volcanic as it was tragic, uncomfortable, and real. It will be interesting to see what places they take Jimmy's and Kim's legal careers as well as the warming war between the Fring organization and the Salamancas with Nacho caught in the middle in what is sure to be a barn burning season finale. See you then!

408 - Coushatta

We found ourselves in the minority of fans after watching AMC's Better Call Saul's latest episode, "Coushatta". While not a bad episode per se, Jim and I were both let down by the actual scheme to befuddle the DA for Huell's case, and taken off guard by the sudden shift in what we perceived as Kim's character. On the other hand, caching up with Nacho was a rewarding experience, and we're truly excited by the possibilities Lalo entering the picture presents. Learn more about your ad choices.

407 – Something Stupid

Despite a warp speed, nearly ten month jump ahead in time, AMC's Better Call Saul proceeds in a deliberate pace, offering just over 40 minutes of content, with just under 9 minutes of montage filling the screen time. One ball that's left to bounce for the entire period is Nacho, the only major principle character we don't get caught up on. Gus has healed Hector to the exact level he needs to maximize his revenge plot. Mike is struggling with an over budget superlab with a crew of bored and increasingly sloppy Germans, and Kim and Jimmy's relationship is on life support. And that's before Jimmy comes to Kim with a big ask to save our favorite not-so-big-man, Huell. If the pace has been slow, the tension has been fairly high, the next three weeks will hopefully have enough fireworks to carry us to season five!

Okay, okay, perhaps we shouldn't have used the dreaded "b"-word when describing this episode of AMC's Better Call Saul, "Talk". But we're just saying, sometimes the show's "stately" pace dips into the realm of the "staid", and it's times likes this two fan boys can hope for some Cousins' fueled mayhem. Still, the episode had its stand out moments; Mike's intense reaction to Stacey trying to move on from the death of his son; and Kim's soul searching by way of low stakes courtroom drama. But we're already looking ahead to the job Gus has for Mike. We discuss all this plus tons of feedback... see you next week!

Season three of AMC’s Better Call Saul is in the books with the finale episode, “Lantern”.  The show is really on fire this season.  As confirmed #F&%@Chuck supporters, we’re delighted to see Chuck get roasted, which left a warm and toasty feeling in our hearts.  Some plot points and character details might seemed burnt out, but we think the Villigang is just blowing smoke our direction to distract us.

Jim and A.Ron are now on the #F&%$EveryBodyButKim bandwagon, now that Jimmy has really fallen so morally and ethically far in AMC’s Better Call Saul, appropriately titled “Fall”.  It’s shocking, disgusting, and horrific, and it’s hard to see how anyone we remotely care about makes it out of this season unscathed.  Poor Kim.  Poor Irene.  We’ll have to see what devastation the Villigang has in store for us next week for the season finale… Learn more about your ad choices.

Jim and A.Ron are highly impressed at the high stakes quasi-legal and totally legit familial drama on hand with the latest episode of AMC’s Better Call Saul, “Chicanery”.  A masterclass in acting and dialog, Jimmy has to go three levels deep in scamming to fool Chuck, but he manages to do so, with devastating results.  But how does Jimmy skate given his crimes?  Will this end the blood feud between the brothers?  Will Chuck go darker?  Will Kim get caught in the cross fire?

304 – Sabrosito

The latest outing for AMC’s Better Call Saul, “Sabrosito”, offers more intriguing information on our favorite Chicken Brother, Gus Fring, as we go back in time to explore the Eladio Cartel’s internal politics, and the petty jealousies and rivalries that will eventually add up to Fring’s pyrrhic victory over his associates to the South.  But we also have some family drama as Jimmy and Chuck continue to wage their cold, legal war against each other.  Will the law offices of Wexler and McGill tri Learn more about your ad choices.

303 – Sunk Costs

“Sunk Costs” is able to perfectly balance the tension in the dueling Mike/Jimmy story lines being juggled on AMC’s Better Call Saul, with clear stakes for both our protagonists as they form powerful alliances and prepare to do battle with worthy foes.  Mike’s machinations against Hector offer the most visceral thrills, but Jimmy’s legal battle against his brother promises the most twists and turns.  Will Jimmy’s legal license survive?  Will his relationship with Kim weather this latest stor Learn more about your ad choices.

302 – Witness

In the latest episode of AMC’s Better Call Saul, the tables are turned as Jimmy becomes Mike’s private investigator as he continues to try to unravel the mysterious “DON’T” message writer.  Tables are later flipped as Chuck employs his own private investigators in an elaborate scheme to unravel Jimmy.  Basically, this episode is all unraveling and private eyes.

301 – Mabel

With A.Ron on vacation, I’m joined by Eric from Personal Arrogants and Direct to cover the season 3 premiere of the most effortlessly gripping show on television.  We speculate about the various plans put in motion this episode and where it’s all going, the final fate of Jimmy / Saul / Gene and devise a new spin-off for the Breaking Bad universe.

Season Three Preview

Jim and A.Ron are getting ready for season three of AMC’s Better Call Saul, by reviewing the advance material and last year’s continuing plots.  What will Chuck do with Jimmy’s confession tape?  Who is trying to come between Mike and his vengeance, and why?   Can Jimmy and Kim find a way to work together in their separate but equal law firm?  When will Gus rear his handsome, mild-mannered head?  All this and more is discussed.  See you next week for the premiere!

210 – Klick

We’re trying to walk a fine line here.  On the one hand, we are impressed as we can be with the quality, pacing, and storytelling on display throughout season two of AMC’s “Better Call Saul”.  Heck, we even really like the finale, episode 210, “Klick”.  But we also have a few problems with how they’re going about doing what they do, and worry that the mounting coincidences, reliance on karmic timing and a fairly limp reveal for the finale will eventually undermine the enterprise.

209 – Nailed

Episode 209 of AMC’s “Better Call Saul”, entitled “Nailed”, is superlative, and takes us on quite the intense and unexpected emotional rollercoaster.  We can’t wait to see what goes down in the finale next week!  But first things first, we talk about Mike’s snatching a total moral defeat from the jaws of victory, Chuck’s crazy pants theory that just happens to be true, Kim’s very nuanced and perhaps conditional acceptance of Jimmy’s wily ways, and much more.

208 – Fifi

A.Ron and Jim are digging Better Call Saul’s latest episode, “Fifi”, which finds the perfect Mike/Jimmy balance and pacing.  Your mileage may vary, of course, but lots of intriguing and interesting things are afoot.  Jimmy is smuggling “war heroes” on Air Force bases, Chuck is sabotaging Kim and Jimmy’s dreams of teaming up, and Mike is dabbling in rather unconventional gardening accessories.  We discuss this and more with help from our fellow fans!

207 – Inflatable

Episode 207, “Inflatable”, was the best of Jimmy, and the worst of Jimmy.  While his colorful sabotage of the corporate, buttoned down Davis and Main firm was entertaining, and the sabotage/montage a masterful edit by Insider Podcaster Kelley Dixon, it was at the expense of some genuinely good people.  And while it’s wonderful that Mike can provide a comfortable and safe lifestyle for his daughter-in-law and granddaughter, we know it eventually forces the doting Mike to abandon them both.

206 - Bali Ha'i

It’s episode 206 of Better Call Saul, “Bali Ha’i”, and the cameos keep coming.  When will Jim’s hands start shaking worse than Mike after bouncing two wannabee tough guys out of his hacienda?  We discuss the various deals, scams, and schemes that make up the bulk of this episode, undertake the complex task of figuring out what the chameleon Howard is all about, wonder what’s next for Mike, and worry about the future of Kim’s career.  Is the S&C offer genuine, or an Akbar-esque trap.

205 – Rebecca

Welcome to our coverage of Better Call Saul’s episode 205, “Rebecca”, in which we find some new revelations about Chuck and Jimmy’s past, as well as some very dangerous future entanglements for Mike.  We come at the episode with two distinct POV’s; Jim is pro-Chuck, while I’m broadly anti-Chuck, and as a result, we have very different interpretations for a lot of the character conflicts in this episode.  Which side do you come down on?

204 – Gloves Off

Jim and A.Ron are loving the latest episode of Better Call Saul, number 204, “Gloves Off”.  Lots of great background and historical details to give our Breaking Bad side the warm fuzzies, and lots of present day action and character intrigue to satisfy our inner Sauls.  We discuss our increasingly nuanced positions on Chuck and Jimmy as characters, what a raw deal Kim got, the cool background details we got on the enigmatic Mike, plow through tons of feedback, and more Law Talk!

Welcome to this week’s podcast covering episode 203 of Better Call Saul, “Amarillo”.  In it, we discuss solid gold armadillos, the ethics of solicitation, the mental state of one Stacie Ehrmantraut, possible ways the Nacho/Mike plot line can connect to Saul and even Gus, and ponder Jimmy’s recklessness and a possibly upcoming Canary Trap strategy to take down Sand Piper.  All this, tons of feedback, and a segment of Law Talk with legal analysis from our bullpen of putative lawyers.  Enjoy!

202 – Cobbler

We thouroughly enjoyed the second outing of “Better Call Saul’s” second season, “Cobbler”.  It had it all, really, and there’s a lot to discuss.  We move through Jimmy’s various legal wranglings, ponder his relationship with Chuck and the complex psychology at work, witness the beginning of the end of Jimmy and Kim’s relationship, and worry for the security of her career, if not her life. Oh, and we discuss pie based erotica, you know, if you’re into that sort of thing.  This plus a ton Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Better Call Saul is back, and we have a lot to say about the new episode, 201, “Switch”!  We got all the angles covered, from fictional high end tequila to the hot new breakfast cereal, Chocobolo, hummingbird and douchey investor cameos, Kim/Jimmy relational angst, and all points in between.  Plus, a lot of great fellow fan feedback and some bonus legal analysis.

110 – Marco

We discuss our changing perceptions of Chuck and Hamlin, Jimmy’s Cicero week o’ scams, pinky rings, and parking lot based changes of heart. Along the way, we consider a ton of great feedback, and towards the end, consider Better Call Saul’s place alongside it’s big brother, Breaking Bad. Perhaps a bit premature, but the fact that we can have an interesting conversation at this point is high praise all by itself, no? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

109 – Pimento

Jim and A.Ron might sound like a bit of a broken record, but we feel that episode 109, entitled “Pimento”, just might be the BEST. EPISODE. EVER. We knew BCS could do comedy, and the Mike centric Five-O proved it could do drama, but who knew it could blend the two so deftly, or that we’d generate genuine pathos from poor, pathetic Jimmy. We discuss betrayals, unlawful carnal knowledge of swine, our thoughts on Kim, hygenic a-holes, and dare we say it, rethinking our relationship with Hamlin. Learn more about your ad choices.

108 – RICO

This podcast, for episode 108 of Better Call Saul, “RICO”, will be subtitled “the one where A.Ron loses his mind with tinfoil theories regarding Hitler’s rise to power and Japanese immigration law…” Aside from the deep dive into the murky world of reddit-derived speculation, we discuss dumpster diving, legal ethics, our surprise at the relative “goodness” of Jimmy, Chuck’s miraculous recovery (or is it?), St. Sebastian, spiders, tons of feedback, and much, much more.

107 – Bingo

Another solid episode of Better Call Saul, number 107 “Bingo” is in the books! We discuss the hideousness that is the Kettlemans, Jimmy’s noble sacrifice for Kim, MIke’s voracious appetite for apples, and what fake Skymall products Chuck needs to cure his fake illness, and much, much more.  All this plus a healthy five apple a day diet of feedback, for your enjoyment!

106 – Five-O

Jim and A.Ron were pleasantly surprised by a complete departure of tone and character in episode 106 of Better Call Saul, “Five-O”… We discuss bleach by-passes, struggle to understand tank top undershirts, as we navigate formative moments of the Man Trout’s life in three month increments.

105 – Alpine Shepherd Boy

Another great episode of Better Call Saul, number 105, “Jello”, er, I mean “Alpine Shepherd Boy”! We discuss filthy toilets, life questioning pedicures, the ethics of committing crazy loved ones, the joys of just watching Jonathan Banks, and much more.  All this, including tons of feedback (this week is at least 33% lawyers), ready to bust down your door and tase you into submission.

104 – Hero

Jim and A.Ron loved this episode, number 104 of Better Cast Saul, “Hero”, which we see as a huge step forward in tone, pacing, and world building.  We got a kick out of seeing the origins of “S’all good, man”, giant trashy bill boards, the bridging of the gap between Slippin’ Jimmy and Saul, the deepening of his relationship to Kim, further Nacho entanglements, and lots and lots of butthole to go around.  All this, and a ton of your insight, expertise and fan theories, coming right at you!

103 – Nacho

Jim finally is pleased with an episode of Better Call Saul. In the series' third outing, we get a hint of the plot could be moving a good chunk of the rest of the season, as Jimmy McGill and a huge bag of ill gotten funds finally meet.  How we got to that point is interesting too, as we bear witness to the demise of Slipping Jimmy, get hints about the nature of Jimmy and Kim’s relationship, and see the genesis of a more congenial relationship between Mike and the man who will one day be called Saul.

102 – Mijo

Welcome to our coverage of Better Call Saul episode 102, “Mijo”! We talk Tuco’s culinary skills, Jimmy’s gift of gab, a possible Nacho connection to the classic Breaking Bad series, some gun related anachronisms, and Wrong Swanson.  All this, tons of feedback, and the barest whiff of a spoiler section, and don’t worry, it’s safely tucked away at the very end of the episode if you don’t want to hear it.  See you next week!

101 – Uno

Jim and A.Ron had a lot of complex feelings about the first episode of Better Call Saul, “Uno”.  A.Ron enjoyed the super sized portion of Saul, but worried about the sustainability of the rate of easter eggs and classic BrBa character appearances, while Jim was bothered by pacing.  We also talked about the Aztek of Azteks, dent trash cans, scams both large and small, and much more.  Plus a ton of great feedback, the fans are bringing it from week one!
