Fuck Chuck.

Great ep this week. Love all the stuff involving Mike & Nacho; and the scene with Jimmy explaining what a "squat cobbler" is to the detectives was hilarious. laff

I hope every season has James coining a new phrase, last year being a Chicago Sun Roof. Great episode though, love all the scenes with Zim Zam the Yo yo man and of course Jimmy taking one step closer to becoming Saul.

He really feels like he's been plucked straight from the Fargo universe and inserted into the BB/BCS universe.

There was actually a little nod to that sun roof incident in the latest episode. When Jimmy gets in his new company car, he looks at the sun roof with a concerned/regretful look on his face.

I totally didn't make that connection while watching. Thanks for making that scene funnier for me.

Holy shit! Best episode yet? Not to mention we got 3 Breaking Bad characters!

I like the hints about Mike being an ex-sniper, possibly in Vietnam. I was dying to get more of Jimmy's plot after last week's episode, but I'm glad they focused on Mike in this one, because WOW it was good. eek

Another super solid episode!

I don't know who I hate more at the moment: Chuck, Howard or Erin. I loved the backstory with Chuck's wife and his & Jimmy's father owning the store. Michael McKean did an amazing job at delivering that tale.

And yet another Breaking Bad cameo! I have the feeling that perhaps the reason Hector ends up in a wheelchair is because of Mike? That'd be interesting, if true. - oops, turns out BB already hinted at the reasons for him ending up in the wheelchair, never mind! Completely forgot about that.

Really loving this show! Season 1 was great but season 2 is even better, imo.

*edit*

Episode 6 was fantastic, best scene was when the Cousins showed up watching Mike at the motel and this came on:



Interested to see where all of Mike's problems with the Salamancas end up (most likely with him working with Gus), but I'm loving Jimmy's side of the show, too. I thought it was great when he broke the cup holder, awesome visual metaphor. smile

Really? I'm not nearly as into season 2 (so far) as season 1. In fact, last week's episode was the first time that this show (or Breaking Bad) have ever turned out an episode that I'd rate below an 8/10.

I loved season 1. I thought it hit the ground running and was fantastic, overall.

Season 2 hit the ground at the level of season 1's weaker episodes (which, to be fair, are still great) and it's only gone downhill from there, so far, if you ask me.

That said, I'm only halfway through the season so far (haven't seen this week's yet) and I would be very surprised if it doesn't pull itself together and become the same, brilliant stuff I'm used to by the end of it - it's just that this seems like a worse mid-season lull than these guys normally deal with...

I can't say that this week's was a huge improvement, sadly. Still good... but I've come to expect so much more from these guys.

I'm with cyber_turnip. I personally think the last two episodes were easily the weakest of the series, so far. I'm starting to feel the Breaking Bad cameos are being shoehorned in just for the sake of it. Also, I really missed Saul alot in this latest episode. It does sound like he has quite a big part in the next episode, so I'll stay optimistic.

I do agree with you on this.

Whilst it's fun seeing all these returning BB characters pop up, I feel like they've gone overkill with it this season. So much so, that it's drowning out Jimmy's side of the story, which is kind of the whole point (and name) of the show. If they stuck to 2 or 3 characters a season and spaced out their appearances, e.g. Ken & Krazy-8, I think it'd give Jimmy/Saul a lot more room to breathe.

Then again, we are meant to be seeing how Mike eventually ends up working with Gus, so I am very excited to see him appear on the show (which one of the showrunners pretty much confirmed will eventually happen, in a recent interview), since he's my favourite BB character.

The Cousins definitely felt shoehorned, they could have used any generic Cartel hitman/hitmen, but oh well. I guess you gotta keep the people who hate the "boring lawyer" stuff happy. Which is a damn shame. But as you said, the preview for ep 7 suggests Jimmy will be definitely be delving into Saul territory soon, with his new bright pink suit. big grin

I'm guessing he'll go full on Saul by the end of the season, because in BB I got the impression he had been doing his Saul schtick for a while prior to meeting Walt and Jesse, I also got that impression with the Mike/Gus relationship, so I wouldn't be surprised if he showed up before the season ends too

The inflatable tube man/colourful suit montage in this week's ep was 10/10.

Also, was really cool to see 1973 in the BB universe, I believe that's the earliest time period we've ever seen on both BB & BCS. smile

This week's episode was a big improvement over the last two.

I agree about the wacky flailing inflatable tube man montage.

OH SHIT

That final scene! I can't believe we only have 1 more episode to go. Then it's just under a year wait until season 3. frown

Agreed. That was by far the best episode of Season 2. Reminded me of Season 1's "Pimento". The end was heartwrenching. frown

The season 2 finale was excellent. The best episode of the season if you ask me.

Overall, I thought season 1 was much better than 2, but I still love this show. Here's to season 3.

The prospect of Gus showing up in season 3 (which was pretty much confirmed by that final scene with Mike in season 2 & the hidden anagram in the episode titles (which was confirmed to be legit by Vince Gilligan & co.)) has me extremely excited for what comes next.

I was so shocked/angry by that last shot of Chuck turning off the tape recorder, the fucking sneaky asshole. mad

As soon as Jimmy said "It's your word against mine" I knew what Chuck had done. Such a giveaway line...a good one though.

Of course, it remains to be seen what Chuck does with that information/evidence. He may yet die or have a change of heart.

Or Jimmy could pull another rabbit out of his butt. He's very good at doing that, and juggling multiple butt-rabbits all at once.

I know this show is very slow-paced, but christ, that season 3 premiere was next-level slow. Still, I enjoyed it. Very curious to see where they're going with the Gene storyline. Also, we're so, so close to seeing Gus. big grin

WOW! The latest Better Call Saul episode was the best one in the series so far. I loved Jimmy and Chuck fighting it out in the Courtroom and ultimately Jimmy catching Chuck out at the end, causing him to have a meltdown in front of the others. First chronological appearance of Huell from Breaking Bad as well.

I haven't found any of season 3 to be particularly slow, to be honest. I'm enjoying it much more than season 2, so far.

Man, seeing the future location of the superlab in episode 6 got me so pumped. I love how they managed to focus on just about every main character without making it feel OTT or messy.

Good stuff. I thought the latest episode was one of the weakest, but still great. Season 3 hasn't had a below par episode yet compared to Season 2. Looking promising!

Holy shit! That Season 3 finale. Chuck has lost the plot and things wrap nicely for almost all the characters except for Mike. Funnily enough, he was absent in my favourite episode as well. Much, much better than Season 2.

Loved season 3. Much better than season 2.

It does seem like they're gearing up to catch up with Breaking Bad pretty soon, though. I'm going to double-down on my original predictions about this show:

Seasons 1-4: Prequel to Breaking Bad
Season 5: Final season, set after Breaking Bad
