Better Cast Saul – 310 – Lantern

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. We are all hot for what seems like an inevitable Nacho / Gus team up, maybe they can hash out the details at an ABQ BBQ to benefit local fire fighters? And while Kim and Jimmy’s chemistry isn’t as smoldering as we would like, Patrick Fabians performance is searing as Howard burns his bridges with Chuck who goes down in flames. If they keep turning up the heat, who knows how scorching this show can get?!

Better Cast Saul – 309 – Fall

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…

Better Cast Saul – 308 – Slip

Jim and A.Ron discuss the latest episode of AMC’s Better Call Saul, “Slip”. We note, rather ominously, the next episode title is “Fall”. Gulp. We discuss better strategies for pill swapping, the probably bowel patterns of an elderly man who’s diet consists entirely of Mexican food and espresso, and give a full-throated cheer for Kim serving some cold justice to one Howard Hamlin.

Better Cast Saul – 307 – Expenses

“Expenses”, the latest installment of AMC’s Better Call Saul, is a workman-like connective episode that really develops the themes of this season while delivering superior performances. We discuss Mike’s motivations to help the Cobbler / Nacho, Jimmy getting way too in to his mock scam of some dick who’s particular about his martinis, Kim’s difficulty in dealing with her help in tearing down a sick man, before delving into the depths of our Scotch ignorance in the mailbag.

Better Cast Saul – 306 – Off Brand

Jim and A.Ron found a lot to like in the latest Better Call Saul, “Off Brand”. The sense of something new, new characters, new directions, old scotch paired with new beginnings. Just a whiff of that “new car smell” coming off the show this week. Plus, we can’t overstate how much fun it is to see Jimmy/Saul in his new role as crappy local TV commercial director guy.
