This many setup episodes is unusual for Better Call Saul, and it has a lot of people tapping their foot and looking at their watches. But there’s more to this one than just setup. We get a lot of mileage out of a Kim cold-open and Jimmy has never been more Saul than he is here. Join us for the podcast to hear our full thoughts on Axe and Grind.
Another setup episode has us tapping our foot like a prostitute-loving lawyer on cocaine wondering when we’ll get to the good stuff. And it’s not that the episode isn’t good, it’s just that anticipation of Howard’s downfall is killing us. But while the Kim and Jimmy plot taketh away, the Lalo plot finally arrives to giveth, with a forehead-slappingly obvious continuation that somehow managed to be a complete surprise. Join us for the podcast to hear our full thoughts.
It’s a setup episode this week but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun, with Gus displaying his love of the underground, Kim meeting an acquaintance from her past, and Jimmy wearing “Howard face”. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on S06E04, Hit and Run.
There’s really only one thing to talk about this week and if you’ve seen the episode you already know. For spoiler’s sake, lets all just get into the podcast before we drop any hints.
It’s a good thing they released these first two episodes of Better Call Saul season 6 on the same night because Nacho’s story really needed it. It’s not exactly the most interesting TV to watch a man run north and hide in a motel. They do what they can though. Aside from that, there’s a lot to love about this one. Mike pulls some Mike stuff to scrub any evidence that might link Gus to the Lalo problem, while leaving a whopper of a question for us to ponder. And it’s the return of the Kettlemans who Jimmy and Kim incorporate into their progressing scheme to take down Howard and get that sweet Sandpiper money.
Better Call Saul is back! Join us in the cathedral of justice for S06E01 “Wine and Roses” for a slight twist on the Better Call Saul season opener. This first episode is doing a lot of heavy setup but there are also a couple standout scenes including the beginning of Operation: Take Down Howard and a never-before-seen view into Saul Goodman’s life.
The final season of Better Call Saul is less than a week away so it’s time for a preview. Joining me on the podcast is Pete Peppers, a Youtuber, BCS fan, and general lover of TV. We talk about our rewatches of the series, including where we left all of the characters, as well as what we know and what we’re looking forward to seeing in season 6. Don’t worry, we avoid spoilers until the very end and we give you plenty of warning before dropping them.
Join Pete and I for the preview podcast, then join my wife, Alexis, and I for the final season of Better Call Saul starting next Wednesday!
The Better Call Saul just executed another run of 10 great episodes, cementing this as one of the strongest seasons of the show yet. Alexis and Jim take to the mics to discuss all the twists and turns, of which there have been many this season, and make some predictions about what characters might do in the show’s final chapter next season. It would truly be something unforgivable if you didn’t join us!
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.
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. Join the discussion:…
