    I really have the hots for Kim. I tend to prefer brunettes, but... I think it's the eyes and lips.

    Great episode! Loving season 2 so far.

    This was one of the best hours of tv I've watched in years. The cold open was fantastic. Gilligan and Gould do those better than just about anyone. Then the scenes of Mike doing his thing. Finally, I laughed hysterically for the squat cobbler scene. That was all Odenkirk's doing. http://www.hitfix.com/whats-alan-wa...spire-the-funniest-better-call-saul-scene-yet

    I said it last season and I'll say it again. BCS is better than BB.

    Once the title is posted there is a small window where you can edit it yourself, I almost never can get it to work though, so in that case the best way to get the title edited is to report the port with the report button and explain your need, which I just did.

    Anyone wish to opine on the use of the word "evidence?"

    My understanding of evidence is that it's not evidence if it's not used in a trial, so if it's not evidence, then he didn't manufacture evidence.

    Legal hair splitting to be sure but certainly something that I would have expected Jimmy to use as a defense of his actions.

    I was thinking the same thing.. it wasn't real "evidence".. it was akin to a little white lie. Although I think it would turn into evidence tampering if the police did pursue the case and it did go to trial.

    edit: Also, Kim was getting way to bent out of shape over something like this. If Jimmy was pulling tricks like that during a real trial, she had a case.

    The whole story was a lie. Kim didn't seem to have an issue with that. But I am not a lawyer, to the subtleties are lost on me.

    It never really should have got to that point. Having a secret cubby hole or whatever in your house is not direct evidence of a crime and explaining it away should not have been necessary. Was funny though.

    Correct, at a trial, definitely and an issue, and doing it pro bono under the table also a huge issue, especially considering he is on a partner track at his lawfirm. So her level of emotion wasn't out of place, I'm just disappointed that they skipped over Jimmy's best defense for her initial concern.

    I was of 2 minds on this, I agree, stonewalling and saying, you have no evidence, so we're done here was definitely a way to go. However the normal reaction of most police and prosecutors would be to look more deeply at the person, which is what makes Jimmy's story pretty brilliant, it covers all the bases, and makes it very unlikely that people would want to dig deeper.

    THAT was a fantastic episode. Really enjoy the 'Mike' scenes.

    So what exactly was the deal for the dude to get his baseball cards back? Haven't had a chance to re-watch, but seemed like he got the cards back for the Hummer + some cash?
    But wasn't the Hummer on lease (from last episode)?

    Yup. He'll either have to keep up the payments or report it stolen, which gets him back to where he started with the cops. Then again at the buyout, he'd have to buy it for the residual. Also I'd guess he'd have to keep it insured (depending on state law). Also, are there fog tests in NM?

    Buying it in cash would have been better for the plot.

    Maybe he bought it and just told the cops he leased it after he noticed them paying so much attention to it. Would have been easy enough for the cops to check, but he already demonstrated an ability to act dumb.
