The Junior Brown song is waaayyyyy cool.  I found you can listen to it on Spotify.

 

Yeah, I saw that video and immediately looked it up. Might buy it on Amazon.

Very good start. Agree that Odenkirk has been great. The direction/cinematography is also great as it's similar to Breaking Bad.

Loved the first 2 episodes. As echoed, Odenkirk is fantastic. 

 

Didn't take long at all for this show to become must watch.

Nothing much to add other than I love the show. I think they've done a great job of developing and adding wrinkles to the Jimmy/Saul character in the first 3 episodes. The humor and wit are as present as they were in Breaking Bad, but we've definitely gone deeper. Can't wait for next Monday (never typed that before..).

Agree, loving the show.  I bet we get a season, maybe two, of Jimmy's fall into becoming "Saul", and then we'll have a nearly unlimited amount of possibilities for the various sordid affairs Saul gets into dealing with the lowlifes of ABQ.

The show is already pretty layered.

Very pleased with the beginning of this series. Done a terrific job in only what, 5 episodes, of giving layers to Jimmy/Saul. I mean for me knowing how it ends in BB and just seeing where thing are and seem headed in BCS he's become a tragic character. Someone I'm already feeling bad for. You just know things are going to go real bad between him and the two other characters currently on the show he cares about and care about him.

Its great how they are making him almost a sympathetic character right now, especially since you know how much of a sleezeball he becomes.

It was a little disjointed, but I really liked last night's episode.

 

Anyone got Mike theories? That nurse has to be his daughter. Single mom with the very young version of the granddaughter from breaking bad? I feel like its possible that Mike killed the husband. Would explain the estrangement. Has he been on the lam?

 

This is also probably the best acting I've seen Michael McKean do, he's really good on the show.

Someone is definitely out to get Mike. A knock at the door, and without hesitation grabs a baseball bat. Hes hiding from someone.

I didn't see the previews but the way it ended I assume the guy at the door was an investigator, likely from Philly, where he used to be a cop. Obviously, suspected of some crime. My guess is Mike isn't a "clean up" guy yet, or hasn't been. I think the parking attendant thing is his only job right now. I do think he is likely suspected of a murder.

Hes a sleezeball, but he still has a heart and soft side too during BB.


I just wonder how much his life really fell apart pre BB. I think it's obvious his brother is dead by then. He said he was married 3 times in BB(could be a lie). Did he finally get Kim and then somehow messed it up?

It's like putting the pieces together. BTW the shows timeline is supposed to be pre BB, concurrent with BB, and then post BB. We've already seen some post BB scenes.

The toilet scene was awesome.


I am pretty sure Shack is thinking of PBR.

"Not the loquacious sort, are ya?" - Saul

"We all can't be as blessed as you." - Mike

Haha... I love this freaking show. I know that's pretty small, but it's fantastic.

"You know what happened.  Question is, can you live with it?"

 

Man, I'm in love with this show.
