The mid-season finale was a serious mind-blower with “Jim and Kimmy’s” plan to take down Howard coming to fruition and Gus’s stalker Lalo, showing up where he’s not wanted. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts before the 6-week break until the final stretch of Better Call Saul.
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.
A.Ron gives his nomination for the best villain in TV history. Alexis Goble and Anthony cover the famous catspaw attack (Catelyn III) and Steve explores the rules of smokeman-assassin gameplay.
Cecily and Alexis say goodbye to this season and more in this final episode. It was very bittersweet, and managed to wring out some genuine emotion compared to the season before. There is a lot on the line, and we can’t wait to talk about it again next season!
Cecily and Alexis discuss episode 5 of season 2 of His Dark Materials: sexual tension, many adventures between worlds, daemon chatter…but absolutely NO DENIM!
