Saul's brother has a mental illness in which he's afraid of electricity.
Chuck thinks that electromagnetism causes him pain. He probably is against vaccinations, too.
I love All That Jazz!
Not as strong as the first episode IMO, but still some great background. Odenkirk is carrying the show very well.
I enjoyed it and anticipate enjoying Jimmy's transformation.
Electromagnetism. I thought they made that clear in the pilot.
I suspect he hasn't thought it through, since the human body has an electromagnetic field (albeit small).
Regardless, there's no question in my mind that he's not ever going to get better.
I actually thought it was better than the first. Biz-snatch cracked me up. I hope those idiots make more appearances.
Will they be this series' Badger and Skinny Pete?
Ugh, I hope not. I liked Badger and Skinny Pete. These guys were not likable at all, just annoying. I wanted Tuco to kill them.
I like this ep much better than Uno. YMMV.
I just posted this in the Pilot thread. Electromagnetic hypersensitivity. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_hypersensitivity
Chuck thinks there is a cure and he will eventually be able to return to work. He's delusional. He will never be "cured," and will never return to work.
When they were all out in the desert and Saul was begging for his life, I was waiting for him to say, "I'm not their lawyer. I have no obligation to them. If YOU [Tuco] hire me, then attorney client privilege means I can't say anything about YOU. So, put me on retainer for $1." It looks like Saul's morals are still somewhat intact. He didn't betray Frick'nFrack and saved their lives. Likewise, he turned down the initial $100K deal from Tuco's #2 (can't remember his name). I'm waiting in anticipation of when Saul turns to the dark side. $100K must be pretty tempting.
Sort of looks like this may be the story of Saul's Breaking Bad.
Yeah, at first when he said, "I WILL GET BETTER," I'm thinking as in recovering from the mental illness, but HE means losing the sensitivity to electromagnetism.
Jimmy: "TAKE OFF THE BLANKET."
What surprises me is that Jimmy McGill is from Albuquerque, where Saul Goodman becomes well known. I assumed that Jimmy was from somewhere like New York. Wouldn't there be a ton of people who know that Saul Goodman is Jimmy McGill?
We do know why Jimmy changes his name. Hamlin, Hamlin, & McGill and Chuck McGill, will make him.
Heh, look for the future when miscreants think that Saul Goodman is much better choice for a lawyer than HHM.
Jimmy's Breaking Bad where he becomes Saul, just as Walter White became Heisenberg.
Possible Easter Eggs:
1. I wonder if the taped up new windshield on Jimmy's car will become a running gag as it was for Walter White's original vehicle.
2. The dented metal trash can in the Pilot episode is also reminiscent of the dented metal paper towel dispenser in the hospital in BB.
3. Was there a fuzzy pink teddy bear (from the plane crash ep in BB) in the stack of stuffed animals behind the court clerk's desk when Jimmy offered the little bunny?
I also enjoy the weird camera angles (like lighting the gas stove from the POV from beneath the burner looking up) which seems to be a Vince Gilligan trademark.
I was expecting Mike Ermentraut to show up at Tuco's Appolita's house as the "cleaner".
abuelita. Spanish for granny, obv.
The scene out in the desert lacked a certain suspense. The whole audience knows Jimmy/Saul/Gene isn't going to get killed.
I knew Jimmy wasn't going to be killed, but I didn't know what was going to happen to dumb and dumber. I found the desert stuff to be quite entertaining. Even though I did get chills from the bone breaking!
No way. Clearly Mike is at the bottom of his career. He's a ex-cop that got kicked out of the Phila PD. If he was a secret "cleaner" no way he's going to be a parking lot attendant for the city of ABQ.
Obviously, at some point, Saul approaches and asks Mike to get out of the box do some heavy, moonlighting work for him. It likely starts off small.
Also, that other guy with Tuco I think is above Tuco, and Tuco is the heavy for him. Tuco kept asking him what he thought. So I don't think he's Tuco's #2, but the other way around. He's the brains, and Tuco is the brawn.
No question Nacho is the brains but Tuco certainly thinks of himself as the boss. He was quite excited to hear about Jimmy's fake Operation Kingbreaker. He proclaimed himself King.
Nacho is also Vic on Orphan Black.
I thought that ruthless Tuco was portrayed as the boss of a still growing drug dealing business here and the other guy is clearly his well spoken and more level headed lieutenant. This was especially clear when the #2 guy came to Saul's office and said that Tuco didn't know he was there while he was trying to freelance that robbery in his spare time.
If you call the phone number on the matchbook you get a voice mail that cuts off. "Hi this is Nach......click"
I liked the episode. Great show. The only thing I found a bit off about it was him throwing up in the bathroom at the woman snapping breadsticks. I don't know how long that scene was supposed to be from the leg breaking incident but you'd think he'd be over it.
I liked the way they showed the passing of time, with the court cases and the bathroom and his saying "It's showtime" etc. It must be hard to have a crazy brother who looks down on you.
How long will it be until he calls?
