I thought the first episode was pretty good. I'm going to give it eight out of ten

paolo, Monday, 9 February 2015 19:17 (seven years ago) link

I'm curious what the dramatic arc of the show is going to be, considering that Walt fucked up a relatively stable criminal ecosystem. Tuco and Gus and Saul were all pretty established and safe in their power. I like the idea of the show as a sort of perverted Matlock, where Saul defends a series of mostly guilty people, but I'm not sure if that's what we're going to get.

polyphonic, Monday, 9 February 2015 19:32 (seven years ago) link

I loved the comedy of it all, the way things were filmed fit that style perfectly. But if it becomes more dramatic, I'm not sure I will care.

Frederik B, Monday, 9 February 2015 19:38 (seven years ago) link

cold open cinnabon was the best part

johnny crunch, Monday, 9 February 2015 19:51 (seven years ago) link

if this were actually good, what a coup . . .

rip van wanko, Monday, 9 February 2015 20:55 (seven years ago) link

it's a little goofy that he's doing exactly what he speculated he might be doing in his new life

I don't see this amounting to a hell of a lot but I'll prob enjoy it for a season or so.

k3ller of sh1p (wins), Monday, 9 February 2015 21:31 (seven years ago) link

but better call saul's a prequel, right? so that means in the last bit of breaking bad he was referring back to something that he used to do.

Karl Malone, Monday, 9 February 2015 21:34 (seven years ago) link

it's not exclusively a prequel. The first thing we see is chronologically after BB

polyphonic, Monday, 9 February 2015 21:35 (seven years ago) link

xp haha no, that would be even sillier! "for my expensive new identity I'm just gonna go back to my old job"

k3ller of sh1p (wins), Monday, 9 February 2015 21:38 (seven years ago) link

actually no it would make more sense, you're right. But it's a flash forward in BCS

k3ller of sh1p (wins), Monday, 9 February 2015 21:41 (seven years ago) link

it's a little goofy that he's doing /exactly/ what he speculated he might be doing in his new life

I like the idea of him being 100% committed to a plan he made in haste. It just fits his character so well!

naus, Monday, 9 February 2015 21:42 (seven years ago) link

I still haven't had a chance to watch yet. Tonight!

Karl Malone, Monday, 9 February 2015 21:45 (seven years ago) link

Nah, it's silly. He probably couldn't choose, it's just tossed off line he throws off. Too much fan service for my taste. The ending with Tuco annoyed me as well. But inbetween, there was loads of good stuff.

Frederik B, Monday, 9 February 2015 21:46 (seven years ago) link

I just took it as a joke/fan service, cause why not? I mean within minutes of starting his first jape he's ended up at __________ (removed for karl)

xp nevermind haha

"it's a little goofy that he's doing exactly what he speculated he might be doing in his new life"

I kinda took it was a business and ID that Saul had created in case anything got to hot, which it did. If I remember right, the scene when Saul tells Walter about Omaha and the Cinnabon is with "the cleaner" held up in that basement waiting to move on to next step.

earlnash, Monday, 9 February 2015 23:29 (seven years ago) link

I didn't even recognize tuco until I saw it mentioned somewhere else. there are bound to be things that this that will happen and I don't see why they shouldn't.

akm, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 05:01 (seven years ago) link

Anyone notice the little hat tip to the Wire in the courtroom scene? not sure if it was intentional or not.

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 08:22 (seven years ago) link

Two associates of Jimmy coincidentally bumping into Tuco's mother (?) is not something that was 'bound' to happen, at least not on their very first day working together. It's an extremely big contrivance, just as it's a contrivance that Saul could have guessed/known/planned exactly what he would be able to do after the cleaner took over.

But so what, right? Well, for me, it takes the mystery out of the characters. The world of Breaking Bad was filled with mystery and danger at the beginning, but they really really killed that over the years. When Krazy-8 was killed, even crazyer Tuco took his place. When Tuco was killed, those weird cousins were sent to avenge him. And this mysterious guy from Chile who sold chicken seemed also involved somehow. But then the entirety of the cartel was nice enough to gather around and be poisoned by a single bottle of tequila, it turned out Gus was mainly motivated by the murder of his friend years ago, and the shadowy involvement of multinational companies in the drugdistribution? Turned out it was a rogue housewife, but nevermind, she had a bad cup of tea as well.

The whole world became so small and neat over the years, that it damaged my interest in it. And now you can't skate on the streets of Albuquerque without running into the Salamanca-family? How small is this city?

Frederik B, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 08:53 (seven years ago) link

eh, i dunno, i don't see it as a problem thus far. so long as it doesn't turn into a 'league of extraordinary gentlemen'-style thing where all they do is give familiar characters walk-on parts. if this is a prequel, i expect to find out how Jimmy becomes Saul, how he meets Mike and why he decides to become a criminal lawyer. Tuco was one of my favourite characters in BB and it' shame he only lasted a handful of episodes, so bringing him back into the frame is a great idea in my book.

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 09:10 (seven years ago) link

tuco's gun is comically large

Clay, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 09:20 (seven years ago) link

that's what she... oh never mind

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 10:05 (seven years ago) link

Lydia wasn't a "rogue housewife"

k3ller of sh1p (wins), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 10:42 (seven years ago) link

yeah, this was pretty good. i really liked that there wasn't much expository dialogue - the characters' interactions were enough to fill in the blanks.

i wonder if the black and white photography in the omaha sequence was a deliberate homage to / joke about alexander payne's nebraska?

bizarro gazzara, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 10:44 (seven years ago) link

were the flash forwarded sequences in BB b/w?

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 10:49 (seven years ago) link

Did 'Chuck' ever get mentioned in BB? I take it he's Jimmy's brother? Or uncle?

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 10:50 (seven years ago) link

So glad this isn't just a knockabout sitcom about a hapless lawyer though. I was always a Saul agnostic when he was in BB as he stood right on the edge between comic foil and slapstick sitcom buffoon. Plus it took me ages to stop thinking of him as Gob in Arrested Development, but as a lawyer instead of a magician. I like how Jimmy cuts a bittersweet, really quite dualised and tragic figure. One minute he's walking around in his suit, acting as though he owns the place; next he's returning home to an absolute hovel after having been talked down to and kicked in the nuts by life... It continues the double-act of WW/Heisenberg in that respect.

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 11:07 (seven years ago) link

i might be out on this already, the tone just feels off to me; I bet there will be some inspired stuff but not sure I want to invest ~14 hrs or w/e

johnny crunch, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 13:10 (seven years ago) link

There will be loads of bb characters in this. Of course as Saul goodman he'll have good reason to come up against every scumbag in Albuquerque, and cops too

I mean, this is a breaking bad spinoff about Walter White's wacky lawyer; its very existence is fan service, however much prestigey ~darkness~ they inject into it.

I'm down cause I thought odenkirk was brilliant in bb

k3ller of sh1p (wins), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 13:15 (seven years ago) link

i loved the cold open so much

gr8080, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 13:35 (seven years ago) link

I enjoyed this a fair bit, just because Saul is a great character and it's good to spend more time with him. Wish the Tuco reveal hadn't come so early, because it's a fairly short line from him to Gus Fring, and really if this show is going to succeed on its own terms it needs to take time to do a Frasier and build its own universe of characters. The scenes with Chuck suggested that's in the plan, even if he felt miscast - I struggled to see him and Saul as actually related.

It's also showing us at least two Walter White-style descents into the underworld, and I love seeing people way way over their heads.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 13:40 (seven years ago) link

Like I think a constant parade of "hey look, it's Badger!" gratuitous fanwank would be the worst approach they could take and I more or less trust Gilligan not to take that road.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 13:41 (seven years ago) link

No they'll be careful not to make it constant I think

k3ller of sh1p (wins), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 13:58 (seven years ago) link

yeah i think i trust this team enough now not to make it shit

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 14:07 (seven years ago) link

When you look at Odenkirk's career between his inspired turn as Stevie Grant in The Larry Sanders Show and his BB turn as Saul it is quite depressing, a lost decade and a half of mediocre writing credits and various atrocious comedy-fail shite. I think this being his stand alone big shot and Gilligan's nerviness at following up such a big hit might be something to do with the rocky start this series has made. I hope it gets better cos I always liked Odenkirk, but so far it all feels a bit stilted and predictable.

Odenkirk did Mr Show between Sanders and Breaking Bad! And he was in Nebraska after BB, which was nominated for a Palme D'Or and a half-dozen Oscars. He will be fine if this tanks.

Comedy-fail dross and an appearance in a Payneful, overrated movie might pay the bills but fronting your own series is a different matter and Fargo is also post BB.

xelab, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 14:47 (seven years ago) link

Yeah, Odenkirk hasn't had the best luck making movies of his own but he's otherwise had a pretty solid (if generally low-key) career and a vast comedic community that rightfully respects the shit out of him. Plus he brought Tim & Eric into our hearts and homes. He's gonna do just fine.

Brodozer Coke Buffet (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 14:48 (seven years ago) link

Mr. Show = 'comedy-fail dross'. Okay.

Brodozer Coke Buffet (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 14:50 (seven years ago) link

ok whatever your assessment of his career or talents are - he understands the risks of Better Call Saul, he'll be fine if it doesn't work out, and it's not "his stand alone big shot".

The NYT interview seems totally level-headed:


“I was worried about what it would do to my family and worried about whether I would end up being the guy who” — um, screwed up — “the legacy of ‘Breaking Bad.’ ”

“And then I talked to my daughter, who is 13 and incredibly mature, she said, ‘It’s a big opportunity, we will be fine, and if it’s bad, really, how bad could it be?’ ”

“And I said well, it won’t be bad. It’s written by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould; the worst thing is it’s a really interesting misfire. If that’s the worst thing it is, I’d be more than happy to be part of that.”

Brio2, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 14:59 (seven years ago) link

There's a scene in Ep 1 at a security checkpoint where the guard waves the metal detector near a guy's privates and it goes off...the fact that McKean is in the cast made me think this was a homage to Spinal Tap

You know, after so much drama, I kind of appreciate that the show ultimately went for a relatively gentle landing.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 17 August 2022 02:39 (one month ago) link

I thought that was a beautiful finale, definitely no need for any other spin-offs. testament to how well they built up Jimmy/Saul as a character and his relationship with Kim that that final twist made sense - she was the only person worth giving up Saul for. And of course he'd actually be great in jail! I loved that.

Walt + Saul flashback milessss better than the Kim + Jesse one, it's been a long time since I watched BB but I enjoyed Walt being annoying science guy again lol

Is Seehorn at an age where it has become difficult for female actors to get roles for way too long. Unless she is relegated to a backing role like someone's mother or otherwise not fully detailed. I hope that is a thing of the past but it is something I think has caused a lot of pain in the past. She is a very good performer so should be allowed to continue being one.
JUst thinking about a comment somebody had said about Odenkirk and Esposito being able to get new projects visibly going already.

Stevolende, Wednesday, 17 August 2022 10:11 (one month ago) link

Or has she just started in the leading role of a comedy I hadn't heard of.

Stevolende, Wednesday, 17 August 2022 11:37 (one month ago) link

You know, I doubt the writers gave much thought to this at first, but I wouldn't be shocked if it came to mind toward the end ... "call" of course has been used literally for most of this show and the one before it, but a "call" is also a decision. So a "better call" would be a better decision, which is what Saul - "better call" Saul - finally makes at the end of the series.

Loved both of Saul’s final displays of courtroom showmanship, heel and face: the first with the ice cold response to “you think a jury’s gonna buy that?” as he stares down Marie; the second makes total sense for the obvious reasons ppl have stated - Kim’s confession jolted his conscience - and his long long overdue moment of honesty (can’t call it redemption, really, and who actually benefits from this punk spending a more insanely long time in America’s stupid carceral system?) works for me as a happy ending of sorts, but fundamentally it’s still their old dynamic; these two spur each other to do reckless things

Vaguely Threatening CAPTCHAs, Wednesday, 17 August 2022 17:47 (one month ago) link

Yeah, now it does! The olde folie a deux, with a last spree and contest, to see who can do the most shocking confession and spin into the sun---will they both be doing interviews, books, as the culmination of this whole true crime/news media gold rush? Also, yes, a way to live with themselves, but there's gotta be danger in there too, as always: Kim might get sued for everything she has and all future earnings (at least, I believe some lawyer in there, probably Jimmy, put it that way, getting all turned on at the extremity of her amends), and he, though maybe the Saul of jailhouse lawyers, with 2 cartons of cigs as fee, could still get shanked by somebody hired from outside, a survivor of old, or just struck down by a rando: there's all kinds of ways for a prisoner to die, and sometimes it's even a celebrity, like Jeffrey Daumer.

dow, Wednesday, 17 August 2022 21:37 (one month ago) link

Speaking of Saul's fees, he never was a true ambulance-chaser, with the big personal injury jackpots, right? Sandpiper was a long, long time in coming, and meanwhile, he's getting, what maybe an average of 200 bucks from how many hundreds of clients, while into conspicuous consumption---and nobody bothered to look at his above-ground practice as money-laundering, until the connection with the cartel was emerging---? I believe it, but all the more reason, along with headline fever, for the prosecution not to agree to seven years; oh well.

dow, Wednesday, 17 August 2022 21:45 (one month ago) link

ambulance-chasers are lawyers who sue people, Saul was pretty much a defense attorney, defending lowlife criminals and such.

Weltanschauung Dunston (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 17 August 2022 22:19 (one month ago) link

the irony of course is his biggest success as a lawyer was a major class-action lawsuit that two different law firms had to oversee, and it was completely legit and benefitted a bunch of elderly folks who had been fucked out of their money.

granted, he didn't do it for the right reasons, but still funny.

Weltanschauung Dunston (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 17 August 2022 22:20 (one month ago) link

God that last episode was some of the most dire fan service and inability to figure out how to end a series since GOT.

Their legal consultant must have had the day off. They don't allow the victim's wife in for plea deal negotiations. Marie's entire scene was bad.

Lol, at Kim getting her law license back. Sure, sure.

Loved the series other than the finale and that Jesse-Kim scene.

she didn't get her law license back. the bar car had no expiration date on it so she lied and told the prison that she was visiting as his lawyer and showed that card as proof. just like when you show a student ID with no expiration date when you graduated 8 years ago.

I mean, Saul also thought he was a fixer of sorts. They never showed him buying out the veterinarian’s little black book but it was strongly implied, right? Every defense case was like a little con, like getting a guy that looked a little like Walt gut didn’t mind some time up state to do the bid

She's---Fifty. Fif-ty yeahs olld. She can punch, she can kick, fif-teh, yeahs, olld. Like the Molly Shannon character---but I had Kim pegged as mid-30s, 40 at most: not just looks, the overall effect. Unless casting directors go strictly chronological, she should be OK.

dow, Friday, 19 August 2022 03:51 (one month ago) link

i just binged this whole second half of final season in two days

one thing i will say on the finale is the black & white cinematography was such an amazing device for Jimmy & Kim’s scenes, giving them that doomed romance of something like A Place In The Sun

Their final interactions together were like mini homages to all the old movies they watched together, knowing they’re stuck with the life they’ve made but wishing it could be more. both spent so much of their lived being stubborn hardasses to the world and cutting off their nose to spite their face but their secret weakness is that they are both mushed-out romantics & the only ones who know it is each other.

thst scene against the prison wall sharing a cigarette with the shadows across them was EVERYTHING

oh and jimmy giving chuck the hg wells time machine book i nearly cried <3

Clay, Friday, 19 August 2022 06:05 (one month ago) link

Dow I have heard for severakl years that there is a habit in casting female actors that makes it difficult to get a lead role over a certain age. Which I think has tended to be late 30s when one is deemed too old to be seen as a romantic lead and therefore roles dry up until one can be cast as mother or older friend or friend of mother. Would appear that Rhea went against that by being cast back in 2014/5 since she was already in that age range. Looking back at her career as shown on IMDB it looks like she has mainly played supporting roles. Now that she has shown her ability so clearly I am hoping that that casting habit which I have heard several complaints about is something that is diminishing, but is just another aspect of gender imbalance in popular culture which is finding a way to perpetuate.
I hoped that seeing Rhea Seehorn had got a lead role in a comedy I hadn't heard of before meant she did already have good things ahead. I then looked up the show and it's a series of shorts on AMC that are all up on youtube too. It may be interesting but seems to be a bit mediocre from the couple of episodes I watched. Wondered if anybody else had even heard of it Cooper's Bar.
Am hoping that we are going to see Seehorn since she does seem to be a good actor (I was wondering if the word actress was still in widespread use since it is so firmly engendered and thereby valorised, like)

Stevolende, Friday, 19 August 2022 10:37 (one month ago) link

Good to know, I was wondering about the eligibility since the last episodes just aired. Garner was great and deserved an Emmy, but I don't know about three for the same role and def not at the expense of zero for Seehorn.
