"Did you sign Tina's birthday card yet?"
Great episode to start the season. I loved the the flash forward. It's amazing how good of a dramatic performer Odenkirk turned out to be.
I like Mike's style. "Well, if they're paying me $10,000 a week as a security consultant I might as well start consulting about security!"
"Who are you exactly?"
"I'm the security consultant."
"I don't know anything about a security consultant."
"Well, you wouldn't, would you?"
Mike is so freakin' good!
I loved the look Kim shot at Jimmy when Jimmy said to Howard, "Well, I guess that's your cross to bear." We all know the whole reason the insurance company got involved was because of Jimmy, and that he did it on purpose. So it's got to be tearing him up that Chuck basically committed suicide because of something Jimmy did, yet Jimmy is acting like it doesn't bother him at all. That's going to result in a breakdown of some sort.
Either that, or it's going to result in him becoming a hard-hearted, criminal-aiding scumbag lawyer.
And that was after taxes.
Was anyone else totally surprised when the episode ended? I'm usually looking at the time bar or messing around on my phone while watching shows because they just don't keep me 100% engaged. But I realized after the fact that I never once looked at the time or my phone while watching this episode, and I was totally shocked when it ended. That's the mark of a masterfully written and produced show.
Yeah, I think the total deductions was over $8k.
For just about every episode of BCS even the longer ones.
By the way, the Better Call Saul insider podcast is back.
What makes it really impressive is how little actually happened, especially in the first half. In another show, this episode might have all happened in fifteen minutes...
Exactly. There was the long, dialogue-free scene of Jimmy waking up, making coffee, reading the paper, etc. There was the scene of the random guy helping his kid fix his bike and then realizing his car battery was dead. There was the long sequence of Mike doing his "inspection" of Madrigal. There was the scenes of Nacho first attempting to dispose of the pills down the drain grate and then later on the bridge. In any other show, all of this stuff would be thought of as unnecessary fluff. But these guys just know how to make that mundane stuff super compelling.
I think Howard's reading of Chuck's obit could have taken the whole hour in itself!
I was thinking the same, that there wasn't really a lot happening. It was sort of an episode to return to the world, get acquainted again, see some reactions to what happened, but that's about it. And yet, it was entirely compelling.
I understand Kelley Dixon isn't hosting this year, although she's participating.
She's on the first episode. She says she's in New York on a movie project, she's participating pretty much as a fan without inside knowledge.
Mike is the best. I still don't like the slow pace (slow IMHO anyway) but it's good to have back.
For a split second I thought it was Walter White coming out of that house with the briefcase.
For a split second I thought it was Mike.
This show has too many middle-aged shaved-skull men.
I thought it might turn out to be a flashback with Mike and his son.
Exactly. I’m still trying to figure out who the cab driver is (whose partial face fits that profile). For a minute I was thinking Jesse Pinkman. I know they’ll come back to it later.
