Better Cast Saul – 410 – Winner

Jim and A.Ron have mixed reviews for AMC’s Better Call Saul’s season four finale, “Winner”. We’re a house divided as to whether “Winner” did enough to justify this season’s at times uneven pacing and anti-climactic storytelling. Still, neither of us think the season was bad by any stretch, and this episode has tons of great scenes; the end of Mike and Werner’s working relationship, Kim coming to the realization that she’s just another in a long line of Jimmy’s suckers, Jimmy breaking down in his Esteem at the fundamental injustice he feels he faces in society. Whether it all adds up to a compelling whole is a question everyone has to answer for themselves. Regardless, we’ll be back next week to wrap things up and entertain counter arguments and theories for what territory Saul will be treading next. See you then!

Better Cast Saul – 409 – Wiedersehen

Jim and A.Ron are excited to see a return of tension and intrigue with the latest episode of AMC’s Better Call Saul. The traditional Jimmy scam gets a Kim-style twist that was very well executed. Don Hector receiving his bell was perhaps unnecessary, but it was really fun to watch. The drama with Werner and the explosives and his ensuing escape attempt fueled the episode with much needed suspense. Finally, Jimmy and Kim’s roof-top blow-up was as volcanic as it was tragic, uncomfortable, and real. It will be interesting to see what places they take Jimmy’s and Kim’s legal careers as well as the warming war between the Fring organization and the Salamancas with Nacho caught in the middle in what is sure to be a barn burning season finale. See you then!

Better Cast Saul – 408 – Coushatta

We found ourselves in the minority of fans after watching AMC’s Better Call Saul’s latest episode, “Coushatta”. While not a bad episode per se, Jim and I were both let down by the actual scheme to befuddle the DA for Huell’s case, and taken off guard by the sudden shift in what we perceived as Kim’s character. On the other hand, caching up with Nacho was a rewarding experience, and we’re truly excited by the possibilities Lalo entering the picture presents. We discuss all this and more plus tons of great listener feedback with smart dissents in the landmark case of Bald Move vs. Kim Wexler.
