Better Cast Saul – 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 storm?

Better Cast Saul – 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!

Better Cast Saul – 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. And we have a giant mailbag full of opinions from you and your fellow fans.

Better Cast Saul – 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, including tons of great feedback from our fellow fans.
