    I don't know what that means...that they've "gotten past Gene." Do you think that part is all wrapped up?

    I'd like to know how he got there. I don't think it would be crazy to address it.

    We have about 6 years to go until Better Call Saul catches up to the beginning of Breaking Bad's timeline.

    They've gone well past the point where he gets there in the flash-forwards. They're telling an entirely different story there.

    The main story of the show will NEVER get there. They're not going to keep it going all the way through BB.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "two timelines." The flash forwards have already covered periods both before and after Saul gets "disappeared" to Omaha. So the argument that there is no timeline where this fits doesn't make sense.

    I agree that they never had any intention of showing Saul and Vacuum Guy interact, so I don't think we've lost anything, but I don't think "two timelines" is a good explanation for why they won't do it.

    ??? No, they haven't. They've all been after he arrived in Omaha.

    Or am I forgetting something?

    As far as I can recall, they've all dealt with "Gene's" gradually deteriorating mental state in his new life.

    Nope, there was a flash-forward scene of Saul in his office getting all his cash together and getting ready to get out of Dodge.

    I really don't think they're going to show a 3rd trip hidden in the back of a truck. it's a bit of overkill. We know how it works.

    If they want to show his first days in Omaha, just show him walking down the street with the truck just leaving. No need to show anybody else.

    Anyone know if El Camino will re-air? I guess I missed it and a search of the guide turns up nothing.

    It's on Netflix if you have that. It might also be on AMC On Demand.

    If you enjoyed the official Breaking Bad podcast, an episode about El Camino was just released today.

    its not the Breaking Bad Insider Podcast, though that would make sense.
    Its on the Better Call Saul Insider Podcast, and there are two episodes. one monday and one today.

    of course kelley dixon introduced it as the breaking bad insider podcast. But at least on itunes, that isn't where it was posted if you're looking.

    I listened to both podcasts but I did a lot of fast forwarding. I'm not into the lovefest that VG goes into with the other creators of "el camino." With a podcast I'm looking for information, not how great a job everyone did.

    Does anyone else hate this movie as much as me? It was slow, very boring, and no action. And I’m a huge fan of BB, Better Call Saul, and VG.

    I didn't hate it, but I would have preferred that the first half focusing on the days after Jessie's escape (and flashbacks) instead of the whole movie, and a second half on what happened years later.
    Almost 3 hrs with commercials on AMC (thank god for FF)

    Thought the $1,800 plot point was ridiculous.

    Interesting question, as I just opened this thread again to see what people are thinking about the movie. I still have it sitting in 'My Shows' and something keeps making me scroll past it when I'm deciding on something to watch.
