I thought the first episode was pretty good. I'm going to give it eight out of ten

paolo, Monday, 9 February 2015 19:17 (five years ago) link

I'm curious what the dramatic arc of the show is going to be, considering that Walt fucked up a relatively stable criminal ecosystem. Tuco and Gus and Saul were all pretty established and safe in their power. I like the idea of the show as a sort of perverted Matlock, where Saul defends a series of mostly guilty people, but I'm not sure if that's what we're going to get.

polyphonic, Monday, 9 February 2015 19:32 (five years ago) link

I loved the comedy of it all, the way things were filmed fit that style perfectly. But if it becomes more dramatic, I'm not sure I will care.

Frederik B, Monday, 9 February 2015 19:38 (five years ago) link

cold open cinnabon was the best part

johnny crunch, Monday, 9 February 2015 19:51 (five years ago) link

if this were actually good, what a coup . . .

rip van wanko, Monday, 9 February 2015 20:55 (five years ago) link

it's a little goofy that he's doing exactly what he speculated he might be doing in his new life

I don't see this amounting to a hell of a lot but I'll prob enjoy it for a season or so.

k3ller of sh1p (wins), Monday, 9 February 2015 21:31 (five years ago) link

but better call saul's a prequel, right? so that means in the last bit of breaking bad he was referring back to something that he used to do.

Karl Malone, Monday, 9 February 2015 21:34 (five years ago) link

it's not exclusively a prequel. The first thing we see is chronologically after BB

polyphonic, Monday, 9 February 2015 21:35 (five years ago) link

xp haha no, that would be even sillier! "for my expensive new identity I'm just gonna go back to my old job"

k3ller of sh1p (wins), Monday, 9 February 2015 21:38 (five years ago) link

actually no it would make more sense, you're right. But it's a flash forward in BCS

k3ller of sh1p (wins), Monday, 9 February 2015 21:41 (five years ago) link

it's a little goofy that he's doing /exactly/ what he speculated he might be doing in his new life

I like the idea of him being 100% committed to a plan he made in haste. It just fits his character so well!

naus, Monday, 9 February 2015 21:42 (five years ago) link

I still haven't had a chance to watch yet. Tonight!

Karl Malone, Monday, 9 February 2015 21:45 (five years ago) link

Nah, it's silly. He probably couldn't choose, it's just tossed off line he throws off. Too much fan service for my taste. The ending with Tuco annoyed me as well. But inbetween, there was loads of good stuff.

Frederik B, Monday, 9 February 2015 21:46 (five years ago) link

I just took it as a joke/fan service, cause why not? I mean within minutes of starting his first jape he's ended up at __________ (removed for karl)

xp nevermind haha

"it's a little goofy that he's doing exactly what he speculated he might be doing in his new life"

I kinda took it was a business and ID that Saul had created in case anything got to hot, which it did. If I remember right, the scene when Saul tells Walter about Omaha and the Cinnabon is with "the cleaner" held up in that basement waiting to move on to next step.

earlnash, Monday, 9 February 2015 23:29 (five years ago) link

I didn't even recognize tuco until I saw it mentioned somewhere else. there are bound to be things that this that will happen and I don't see why they shouldn't.

akm, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 05:01 (five years ago) link

Anyone notice the little hat tip to the Wire in the courtroom scene? not sure if it was intentional or not.

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 08:22 (five years ago) link

Two associates of Jimmy coincidentally bumping into Tuco's mother (?) is not something that was 'bound' to happen, at least not on their very first day working together. It's an extremely big contrivance, just as it's a contrivance that Saul could have guessed/known/planned exactly what he would be able to do after the cleaner took over.

But so what, right? Well, for me, it takes the mystery out of the characters. The world of Breaking Bad was filled with mystery and danger at the beginning, but they really really killed that over the years. When Krazy-8 was killed, even crazyer Tuco took his place. When Tuco was killed, those weird cousins were sent to avenge him. And this mysterious guy from Chile who sold chicken seemed also involved somehow. But then the entirety of the cartel was nice enough to gather around and be poisoned by a single bottle of tequila, it turned out Gus was mainly motivated by the murder of his friend years ago, and the shadowy involvement of multinational companies in the drugdistribution? Turned out it was a rogue housewife, but nevermind, she had a bad cup of tea as well.

The whole world became so small and neat over the years, that it damaged my interest in it. And now you can't skate on the streets of Albuquerque without running into the Salamanca-family? How small is this city?

Frederik B, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 08:53 (five years ago) link

eh, i dunno, i don't see it as a problem thus far. so long as it doesn't turn into a 'league of extraordinary gentlemen'-style thing where all they do is give familiar characters walk-on parts. if this is a prequel, i expect to find out how Jimmy becomes Saul, how he meets Mike and why he decides to become a criminal lawyer. Tuco was one of my favourite characters in BB and it' shame he only lasted a handful of episodes, so bringing him back into the frame is a great idea in my book.

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 09:10 (five years ago) link

tuco's gun is comically large

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 10:05 (five years ago) link

Lydia wasn't a "rogue housewife"

k3ller of sh1p (wins), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 10:42 (five years ago) link

yeah, this was pretty good. i really liked that there wasn't much expository dialogue - the characters' interactions were enough to fill in the blanks.

i wonder if the black and white photography in the omaha sequence was a deliberate homage to / joke about alexander payne's nebraska?

bizarro gazzara, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 10:44 (five years ago) link

were the flash forwarded sequences in BB b/w?

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 10:49 (five years ago) link

Did 'Chuck' ever get mentioned in BB? I take it he's Jimmy's brother? Or uncle?

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 10:50 (five years ago) link

So glad this isn't just a knockabout sitcom about a hapless lawyer though. I was always a Saul agnostic when he was in BB as he stood right on the edge between comic foil and slapstick sitcom buffoon. Plus it took me ages to stop thinking of him as Gob in Arrested Development, but as a lawyer instead of a magician. I like how Jimmy cuts a bittersweet, really quite dualised and tragic figure. One minute he's walking around in his suit, acting as though he owns the place; next he's returning home to an absolute hovel after having been talked down to and kicked in the nuts by life... It continues the double-act of WW/Heisenberg in that respect.

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 11:07 (five years ago) link

i might be out on this already, the tone just feels off to me; I bet there will be some inspired stuff but not sure I want to invest ~14 hrs or w/e

johnny crunch, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 13:10 (five years ago) link

There will be loads of bb characters in this. Of course as Saul goodman he'll have good reason to come up against every scumbag in Albuquerque, and cops too

I mean, this is a breaking bad spinoff about Walter White's wacky lawyer; its very existence is fan service, however much prestigey ~darkness~ they inject into it.

I'm down cause I thought odenkirk was brilliant in bb

i loved the cold open so much

gr8080, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 13:35 (five years ago) link

I enjoyed this a fair bit, just because Saul is a great character and it's good to spend more time with him. Wish the Tuco reveal hadn't come so early, because it's a fairly short line from him to Gus Fring, and really if this show is going to succeed on its own terms it needs to take time to do a Frasier and build its own universe of characters. The scenes with Chuck suggested that's in the plan, even if he felt miscast - I struggled to see him and Saul as actually related.

It's also showing us at least two Walter White-style descents into the underworld, and I love seeing people way way over their heads.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 13:40 (five years ago) link

Like I think a constant parade of "hey look, it's Badger!" gratuitous fanwank would be the worst approach they could take and I more or less trust Gilligan not to take that road.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 13:41 (five years ago) link

No they'll be careful not to make it constant I think

k3ller of sh1p (wins), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 13:58 (five years ago) link

yeah i think i trust this team enough now not to make it shit

oi listen mate, shut up (dog latin), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 14:07 (five years ago) link

When you look at Odenkirk's career between his inspired turn as Stevie Grant in The Larry Sanders Show and his BB turn as Saul it is quite depressing, a lost decade and a half of mediocre writing credits and various atrocious comedy-fail shite. I think this being his stand alone big shot and Gilligan's nerviness at following up such a big hit might be something to do with the rocky start this series has made. I hope it gets better cos I always liked Odenkirk, but so far it all feels a bit stilted and predictable.

Odenkirk did Mr Show between Sanders and Breaking Bad! And he was in Nebraska after BB, which was nominated for a Palme D'Or and a half-dozen Oscars. He will be fine if this tanks.

Comedy-fail dross and an appearance in a Payneful, overrated movie might pay the bills but fronting your own series is a different matter and Fargo is also post BB.

xelab, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 14:47 (five years ago) link

Yeah, Odenkirk hasn't had the best luck making movies of his own but he's otherwise had a pretty solid (if generally low-key) career and a vast comedic community that rightfully respects the shit out of him. Plus he brought Tim & Eric into our hearts and homes. He's gonna do just fine.

Brodozer Coke Buffet (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 14:48 (five years ago) link

Mr. Show = 'comedy-fail dross'. Okay.

Brodozer Coke Buffet (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 14:50 (five years ago) link

ok whatever your assessment of his career or talents are - he understands the risks of Better Call Saul, he'll be fine if it doesn't work out, and it's not "his stand alone big shot".

The NYT interview seems totally level-headed:


“I was worried about what it would do to my family and worried about whether I would end up being the guy who” — um, screwed up — “the legacy of ‘Breaking Bad.’ ”

“And then I talked to my daughter, who is 13 and incredibly mature, she said, ‘It’s a big opportunity, we will be fine, and if it’s bad, really, how bad could it be?’ ”

“And I said well, it won’t be bad. It’s written by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould; the worst thing is it’s a really interesting misfire. If that’s the worst thing it is, I’d be more than happy to be part of that.”

Brio2, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 14:59 (five years ago) link

There's a scene in Ep 1 at a security checkpoint where the guard waves the metal detector near a guy's privates and it goes off...the fact that McKean is in the cast made me think this was a homage to Spinal Tap

it makes perfect sense that eladio would be delighted by lalo, since it falls on his right-hand bolsa to clean up all the messages. eladio can just enjoy his charmingly sleazy antics like the viewer at home.

We were supposed to think it was a setup, right, for a moment there, when Nacho comes out at 2.55am and sees Lalo sitting waiting by the back gate?
Then I remembered Mike knew about it. The moment Mike assured Jimmy it was happening, I knew it wasn't happening.

We were supposed to think it was a setup, right, for a moment there, when Nacho comes out at 2.55am and sees Lalo sitting waiting by the back gate?

Without thinking about Mike or anything else, that's exactly what I thought, that Lalo was onto everything. (I did find it a little bit of a stretch that he wasn't suspicious of Nacho's 3:00 a.m. wanderings.)

clemenza, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 21:05 (one month ago) link

I still think that he thinks of Nacho as a tracking device: maybe he'll go the "good" way, maybe not, but anyway useful. Still, Lalo had to go check out that kitchen thing (how did Nacho know this was just like what those morons used to do, use a burner as a lighter, then forget to turn it off)
So did Eladio order the hit on the guys who ambushed Jimmy, did he order the hit on Lalo? Trying both times to help Fring?

favorite moment in this ep (maybe all season): Howard narcing on Jimmy’s antics in “this is v serious tone” & Kim just stands there expressionless for a beat & then busts out laughing

god love her

Rhea Seehorn seemingly at the Alison Janney god-level of being able to laugh genuinely on command

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 22 April 2020 00:28 (one month ago) link

Nacho didn't use the burner as a lighter -- he was rigging a grease smoke and possibly grease fire (callback to the Los Pollos Hermanos grease fire) in an attempt to cause a distraction, but it turns out Lalo interpreted that as his lackey using the burner as a lighter.

mh, Wednesday, 22 April 2020 00:31 (one month ago) link

Kim just stands there expressionless for a beat & then busts out laughing

Once again, I was fooled. My first thought was the laughter was a show for Howard, and that she'd then go home and confront Jimmy, especially over the hookers. But I'm finally clear-eyed on Kim (cf. that Rolling Stone piece): she's just as, if not more, devious than Jimmy.

Yes, and "You know who knew Jimmy better than anybody? Chuck." So true, and unforgivable.
I got that Nacho was setting a trap for Lalo, but how did he know what would be the perfect bait? Eladio was behind the attempt on Lalo, right? And sent the ambushers too?

dow, Wednesday, 22 April 2020 01:02 (one month ago) link

I don't think Eladio was involved in the hit squad on Lalo. Totally a Fring operation. The ambush on Jimmy in E08 was called by Bolsa, the guy who was there at Eladio's delivering money from Fring but with less showmanship. Eladio wouldn't have any reason to kneecap the Salamanca operation.

I got that Nacho was setting a trap for Lalo, but how did he know what would be the perfect bait?

He didn’t; he was backed into a corner and improvising, like people do on this show. We saw him go for a knife before deciding to set the fire as a distraction - it was smart but he wasn’t thinking “Lalo will interpret this oil fire as that one guy using the stove to light his cigarette”, he was in panic mode.

That whole scene out in the yard was so great - every scene between the two of them tbh. I loved lalo’s line reading earlier of “....aaah, you’ll be fine!” when nacho asks what if eladio doesn’t like him.

They’ve kept us guessing a bit this season but it’s imo pretty definitively clear at this point that Lalo did not have any idea nacho was working with fring. But he certainly knows now.

Rewatched The Conversation last night and it seems that consideration of how Harry Caul's perspective distorted his interpretation of the titular conversation is perhaps instructive in reviewing what we/Jimmy thought we knew about Kim.

Unparalleled Elegance (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 22 April 2020 16:31 (one month ago) link

Thanks for the explanations, and the link. The clash ended poorly for the assassins — Lalo killed them all — So dark, I couldn't see most of what happened, so didn't have much reaction.
Will Kim take it too far for her endurance, nerve, will? Walt's wife decided she wanted to be a badass too...

dow, Wednesday, 22 April 2020 16:33 (one month ago) link

I did and didn't want Lalo to be whacked: great character, but/and disturbing---"the charming sociopath," as NYTimes puts it, also professionally astute yet seemingly reckless at times, then really reckless (never know just when/how *any* of these characters may go rong, Mike incl.)

dow, Wednesday, 22 April 2020 16:39 (one month ago) link

So I guess the whole thing, as W Breaking Bad, is about biting off more than you can chew, hubristics, breaking badly ultimately as well as breaking badass in this moment or that: casino life.
Of course it will have been even more disturbing if some characters do live happily and badly ever after (As may have already happened/will happen in BB? Can't think who though---so many to keep up with, incl. in shadows.)

Last season’s flash forward ended with a guy from Albuquerque clearly recognising Saul and this season began with Gene flipping out and leaving town as a result. When the guy comes back in the next scene & says “I knew that was you” I didn’t assume it was a random different guy from Albuquerque lol

That's a fair point, but I don't know how far that reach would be. I mean like Peter Francis Geraci is basically a minor celebrity in Chicago, but I have no idea what that name recognition would mean three or four states away.
