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.
After the conclusion of The New Pope, Cecily and A.Ron discuss where we have been. We learn the fate of everyone in what they both agree is a satisfying finale. God can really be a complicated trickster.
Jim and I saw a Star Wars film tonight. We were displeased. If you loved or liked the film, we’re really happy for you. But this trilogy wasn’t for us, much like it’s father, the prequel trilogy before it. If you hate the film, we totally get that, too. All we ask is that you try to be happy for the people who are happy, and try to be understanding to the people who are feeling a bit numb like us. We’ll be back in 2020 for some more awesome movies, and probably a few that will suck, as is tradition. See you then!
In Episode #9, originally aired on 12.22.14: The boys share presents for each other and from family and friends while kicking back some winter ales.
Jim and A.Ron watched the Watchmen. In the finale episode of the season, and perhaps the series, See How They Fly, they break a few eggs to make a tasty omelette.
