Re: Better Call Saul - AMC Monday

Am I the only one who saw Jimmy's 'this guy' line coming and accordingly raised both thumbs and pointed at himself?

Re: Better Call Saul - AMC Monday

Unfortunately the entire episode was about "This guy, Saul". I can't imagine even at Saul's darkest would he ever "kick" an elderly lady's shin as he did here. If this is what we have to look forward to in Saul, I'm not a big fan, and I think Jimmy is all but dead. The victims of Jimmy's past deeds were not innocents and this one crossed a big line.

Re: Better Call Saul - AMC Monday

Definitely crossed a big line, and totally unnecessary. That little push-speech he gave Irene after the Bingo game could have been where he started out with her! She clearly felt overwhelmed by her responsibilities as the signatory or whatever the designation was. How did she get that position, anyway, and have her mental faculties declined since then? Jimmy could have talked to the other ladies about helping her out. He may very well have ruined the rest of her life!

Mixed feelings about this episode. The scene with Nacho and his dad was great, and Kim's near-crash into the derrick was really frightening. Her run off the curve felt not quite right. I'll watch that again, although knowing what happens may make it impossible to see what didn't work. But the camera pulling back and showing that, if not for that huge boulder, her car could very well have flown into the arroyo below -- yikes!

Pi-o-my, I thought that crash was very realistic and perfectly captured the feeling of dozing off and finding myself a mile down an empty highway when it seemed like only a second.. (not that it ever happened to me).

Re: Better Call Saul - AMC Monday

I wasn't bothered by Jimmy's manipulation of the old broad. She's holding up over a million dollars for him. It also seemed as though the other parties involved in the suit, her 'friends', had not even been consulted. Perhaps a naive old lady with absolutely zero degree of savvy shouldn't be in that role.

Either way, it appears that Hamlin is the real bad guy here. He's responsible for spinning the case so that it takes a long time to close. All the other parties are his victims, especially considering these are seniors with perhaps not much time to enjoy the proceeds. They could conceivably all pass before it gets done,

On the surface it may look like Jimmy is just hornswoggling a sweet old lady but he's really pushing to make the right thing happen the clients that were his to begin with, and of course for himself. Over a million dollars resting on the shoulders of a whimsical senior citizen...

As far as I'm concerned, the worst thing Jimmy did this ep was lie about baking the cookies.

No word yet, although it's most likely it will be renewed.

Re: Better Call Saul - AMC Monday

Chuck, Chuck, Chuck.... there's backsliding and there is backsliding. There's no coming back from that one and I'm sure it will have a devastating effect on Jimmy.

Speaking of backsliding, good for Jimmy for redeeming himself by making it right between Irene and her friends with great cost to his reputation. I thought he was full-on Saul, but he backslid into Jimmy territory.

The closer Jimmy and Kim get the sadder I get because it can't last. I think guilt over Chuck may play a factor in their eventual split. Good to see Blockbusters in full swing DVD mode, a blast from the recent past.

Nacho was lucky and for now at least his father is safe. What was Gus thinking? I can't believe I have to wait a year for the next season.

Michael McKean deserves an Emmy.

Re: Better Call Saul - AMC Monday

Gus jumping in to save Hector surprised me, too. I guess he can't let go of what he told Mike, that Gus wants control how Hector dies. Breaking Bad spoiler alert, that didn't work out too well for him. I loved the interaction between Gus and Nacho in that scene.

Jimmy basically burned down his elder law business, with a microphone rather than a lantern. He's going to have to find another niche to fill once his suspension is up.

Kim also, after her brush with death, is going to feel the need to take her business in a new direction. All that dedication just to increase a mid-size local bank to a mid-size regional bank doesn't seem like what Atticus Finch would do.
