Episode Date
S06E06 - Axe and Grind
5367
This many setup episodes is unusual for Better Call Saul, and it has a lot of people tapping their foot and looking at their watches. But there's more to this one than just setup. We get a lot of mileage out of a Kim cold-open and Jimmy has never been more Saul than he is here. Join us for the podcast to hear our full thoughts on Axe and Grind.

S06E05 - Black and Blue
4992
Another setup episode has us tapping our foot like a prostitute-loving lawyer on cocaine wondering when we'll get to the good stuff. And it's not that the episode isn't good, it's just that anticipation of Howard's downfall is killing us. But while the Kim and Jimmy plot taketh away, the Lalo plot finally arrives to giveth, with a forehead-slappingly obvious continuation that somehow managed to be a complete surprise.

It's a setup episode this week but that doesn't mean we can't have a little fun, with Gus displaying his love of the underground, Kim meeting an acquaintance from her past, and Jimmy wearing "Howard face".

S06E02 - Carrot and Stick
3505
It's a good thing they released these first two episodes of Better Call Saul season 6 on the same night because Nacho's story really needed it. It's not exactly the most interesting TV to watch a man run north and hide in a motel. They do what they can though. Aside from that, there's a lot to love about this one. Mike pulls some Mike stuff to scrub any evidence that might link Gus to the Lalo problem, while leaving a whopper of a question for us to ponder. And it's the return of the Kettlemans who Jimmy and Kim incorporate into their progressing scheme to take down Howard and get that sweet Sandpiper money.

S05E10 - Something Unforgivable
5422
The Better Call Saul just executed another run of 10 great episodes, cementing this as one of the strongest seasons of the show yet. Alexis and Jim take to the mics to discuss all the twists and turns, of which there have been many this season, and make some predictions about what characters might do in the show's final chapter next season.

S05E09 - Bad Choice Road
5232
The penultimate episode of season 5 does a great job of setting the table for what's sure to be a bloody finale, assuming this season follows patterns established in previous seasons of Better Call Saul. We express our love for Lalo the cat-man and Kim the wonder woman and dig deep into the character trajectories to make our final predictions of the season in S05E09 - Bad Choice Road.

In this episode, we follow Mike and Saul into the desert and watch them slowly wither away, while Lalo continues to rot in jail. Sounds like a real banger, doesn't it?

410 - Winner
7402
We're a house divided as to whether "Winner" did enough to justify this season's at times uneven pacing and anti-climactic storytelling. Still, neither of us think the season was bad by any stretch, and this episode has tons of great scenes; the end of Mike and Werner's working relationship, Kim coming to the realization that she's just another in a long line of Jimmy's suckers, Jimmy breaking down in his Esteem at the fundamental injustice he feels he faces in society.

409 - Wiedersehen
5991
Jim and A.Ron are excited to see a return of tension and intrigue with the latest episode of AMC's Better Call Saul. The traditional Jimmy scam gets a Kim-style twist that was very well executed. Don Hector receiving his bell was perhaps unnecessary, but it was really fun to watch. The drama with Werner and the explosives and his ensuing escape attempt fueled the episode with much needed suspense. Finally, Jimmy and Kim's roof-top blow-up was as volcanic as it was tragic, uncomfortable, and real. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

408 - Coushatta
6859
We found ourselves in the minority of fans after watching AMC's Better Call Saul's latest episode, "Coushatta". While not a bad episode per se, Jim and I were both let down by the actual scheme to befuddle the DA for Huell's case, and taken off guard by the sudden shift in what we perceived as Kim's character. On the other hand, caching up with Nacho was a rewarding experience, and we're truly excited by the possibilities Lalo entering the picture presents. Learn more about your ad choices.

407 - Something Stupid
5983
Despite a warp speed, nearly ten month jump ahead in time, AMC's Better Call Saul proceeds in a deliberate pace, offering just over 40 minutes of content, with just under 9 minutes of montage filling the screen time. Gus has healed Hector to the exact level he needs for his revenge plot. Mike is struggling with an over budget superlab and a crew of bored and increasingly sloppy Germans, and Kim and Jimmy's relationship is on life support. And that's before Jimmy comes to Kim with a big ask to save Huell. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

404 - Talk
5709
Okay, okay, perhaps we shouldn't have used the dreaded "b"-word when describing this episode of AMC's Better Call Saul, "Talk". But we're just saying, sometimes the show's "stately" pace dips into the realm of the "staid", and it's times likes this two fan boys can hope for some Cousins' fueled mayhem. Still, the episode had its stand out moments; Mike's intense reaction to Stacey trying to move on from the death of his son; and Kim's soul searching by way of low stakes courtroom drama.

402 - Breathe
6483
AMC's Better Call Saul delivers the goods in another tense episode, reminding us to "Breathe". Between Gus's high stakes plot to squeeze the Salamanca gang by taking ownership of Nacho to Kim's blistering of Howard in his own firm over his callous treatment of Jimmy, this episode had plenty of fireworks. Speaking of Jimmy, the real mystery that is driving a lot of the intrigue this season is the man himself. What's going on with him? We ponder this and more with the help of plenty of fan feedback!

Season three of AMC’s Better Call Saul is in the books with the finale episode, “Lantern”.  The show is really on fire this season.  As confirmed #F&%@Chuck supporters, we’re delighted to see Chuck get roasted, which left a warm and toasty feeling in our hearts.  Some plot points and character details might seemed burnt out, but we think the Villigang is just blowing smoke our direction to distract us.

Jim and A.Ron are now on the #F&%$EveryBodyButKim bandwagon, now that Jimmy has really fallen so morally and ethically far in AMC’s Better Call Saul, appropriately titled “Fall”.  It’s shocking, disgusting, and horrific, and it’s hard to see how anyone we remotely care about makes it out of this season unscathed.  Poor Kim.  Poor Irene.  We’ll have to see what devastation the Villigang has in store for us next week for the season finale… Learn more about your ad choices.

We’re trying to walk a fine line here.  On the one hand, we are impressed as we can be with the quality, pacing, and storytelling on display throughout season two of AMC’s “Better Call Saul”.  Heck, we even really like the finale, episode 210, “Klick”.  But we also have a few problems with how they’re going about doing what they do, and worry that the mounting coincidences, reliance on karmic timing and a fairly limp reveal for the finale will eventually undermine the enterprise.

209 – Nailed
5650
Episode 209 of AMC’s “Better Call Saul”, entitled “Nailed”, is superlative, and takes us on quite the intense and unexpected emotional rollercoaster.  We can’t wait to see what goes down in the finale next week!  But first things first, we talk about Mike’s snatching a total moral defeat from the jaws of victory, Chuck’s crazy pants theory that just happens to be true, Kim’s very nuanced and perhaps conditional acceptance of Jimmy’s wily ways, and much more.

208 – Fifi
6013
A.Ron and Jim are digging Better Call Saul’s latest episode, “Fifi”, which finds the perfect Mike/Jimmy balance and pacing.  Your mileage may vary, of course, but lots of intriguing and interesting things are afoot.  Jimmy is smuggling “war heroes” on Air Force bases, Chuck is sabotaging Kim and Jimmy’s dreams of teaming up, and Mike is dabbling in rather unconventional gardening accessories.  We discuss this and more with help from our fellow fans!

207 – Inflatable
4721
Episode 207, “Inflatable”, was the best of Jimmy, and the worst of Jimmy.  While his colorful sabotage of the corporate, buttoned down Davis and Main firm was entertaining, and the sabotage/montage a masterful edit by Insider Podcaster Kelley Dixon, it was at the expense of some genuinely good people.  And while it’s wonderful that Mike can provide a comfortable and safe lifestyle for his daughter-in-law and granddaughter, we know it eventually forces the doting Mike to abandon them both.

206 - Bali Ha'i
5413
It’s episode 206 of Better Call Saul, “Bali Ha’i”, and the cameos keep coming.  When will Jim’s hands start shaking worse than Mike after bouncing two wannabee tough guys out of his hacienda?  We discuss the various deals, scams, and schemes that make up the bulk of this episode, undertake the complex task of figuring out what the chameleon Howard is all about, wonder what’s next for Mike, and worry about the future of Kim’s career.  Is the S&C offer genuine, or an Akbar-esque trap.

205 – Rebecca
7177
Welcome to our coverage of Better Call Saul’s episode 205, “Rebecca”, in which we find some new revelations about Chuck and Jimmy’s past, as well as some very dangerous future entanglements for Mike.  We come at the episode with two distinct POV’s; Jim is pro-Chuck, while I’m broadly anti-Chuck, and as a result, we have very different interpretations for a lot of the character conflicts in this episode.  Which side do you come down on?

204 – Gloves Off
5136
Jim and A.Ron are loving the latest episode of Better Call Saul, number 204, “Gloves Off”.  Lots of great background and historical details to give our Breaking Bad side the warm fuzzies, and lots of present day action and character intrigue to satisfy our inner Sauls.  We discuss our increasingly nuanced positions on Chuck and Jimmy as characters, what a raw deal Kim got, the cool background details we got on the enigmatic Mike, plow through tons of feedback, and more Law Talk!

202 – Cobbler
5828
We thouroughly enjoyed the second outing of “Better Call Saul’s” second season, “Cobbler”.  It had it all, really, and there’s a lot to discuss.  We move through Jimmy’s various legal wranglings, ponder his relationship with Chuck and the complex psychology at work, witness the beginning of the end of Jimmy and Kim’s relationship, and worry for the security of her career, if not her life. Oh, and we discuss pie based erotica, you know, if you’re into that sort of thing.  This plus a ton Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Better Call Saul is back, and we have a lot to say about the new episode, 201, “Switch”!  We got all the angles covered, from fictional high end tequila to the hot new breakfast cereal, Chocobolo, hummingbird and douchey investor cameos, Kim/Jimmy relational angst, and all points in between.  Plus, a lot of great fellow fan feedback and some bonus legal analysis.

110 – Marco
6753
We discuss our changing perceptions of Chuck and Hamlin, Jimmy’s Cicero week o’ scams, pinky rings, and parking lot based changes of heart. Along the way, we consider a ton of great feedback, and towards the end, consider Better Call Saul’s place alongside it’s big brother, Breaking Bad. Perhaps a bit premature, but the fact that we can have an interesting conversation at this point is high praise all by itself, no? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

109 – Pimento
5490
Jim and A.Ron might sound like a bit of a broken record, but we feel that episode 109, entitled “Pimento”, just might be the BEST. EPISODE. EVER. We knew BCS could do comedy, and the Mike centric Five-O proved it could do drama, but who knew it could blend the two so deftly, or that we’d generate genuine pathos from poor, pathetic Jimmy. We discuss betrayals, unlawful carnal knowledge of swine, our thoughts on Kim, hygenic a-holes, and dare we say it, rethinking our relationship with Hamlin. Learn more about your ad choices.

This podcast, for episode 108 of Better Call Saul, “RICO”, will be subtitled “the one where A.Ron loses his mind with tinfoil theories regarding Hitler’s rise to power and Japanese immigration law…” Aside from the deep dive into the murky world of reddit-derived speculation, we discuss dumpster diving, legal ethics, our surprise at the relative “goodness” of Jimmy, Chuck’s miraculous recovery (or is it?), St. Sebastian, spiders, tons of feedback, and much, much more.

Another solid episode of Better Call Saul, number 107 “Bingo” is in the books! We discuss the hideousness that is the Kettlemans, Jimmy’s noble sacrifice for Kim, MIke’s voracious appetite for apples, and what fake Skymall products Chuck needs to cure his fake illness, and much, much more.  All this plus a healthy five apple a day diet of feedback, for your enjoyment!

Jim and A.Ron were pleasantly surprised by a complete departure of tone and character in episode 106 of Better Call Saul, “Five-O”… We discuss bleach by-passes, struggle to understand tank top undershirts, as we navigate formative moments of the Man Trout’s life in three month increments.

104 – Hero
5754
Jim and A.Ron loved this episode, number 104 of Better Cast Saul, “Hero”, which we see as a huge step forward in tone, pacing, and world building.  We got a kick out of seeing the origins of “S’all good, man”, giant trashy bill boards, the bridging of the gap between Slippin’ Jimmy and Saul, the deepening of his relationship to Kim, further Nacho entanglements, and lots and lots of butthole to go around.  All this, and a ton of your insight, expertise and fan theories, coming right at you!

103 – Nacho
5977
Jim finally is pleased with an episode of Better Call Saul. In the series' third outing, we get a hint of the plot could be moving a good chunk of the rest of the season, as Jimmy McGill and a huge bag of ill gotten funds finally meet.  How we got to that point is interesting too, as we bear witness to the demise of Slipping Jimmy, get hints about the nature of Jimmy and Kim’s relationship, and see the genesis of a more congenial relationship between Mike and the man who will one day be called Saul.

Welcome to our coverage of Better Call Saul episode 102, “Mijo”! We talk Tuco’s culinary skills, Jimmy’s gift of gab, a possible Nacho connection to the classic Breaking Bad series, some gun related anachronisms, and Wrong Swanson.  All this, tons of feedback, and the barest whiff of a spoiler section, and don’t worry, it’s safely tucked away at the very end of the episode if you don’t want to hear it.  See you next week!

Jim and A.Ron had a lot of complex feelings about the first episode of Better Call Saul, “Uno”.  A.Ron enjoyed the super sized portion of Saul, but worried about the sustainability of the rate of easter eggs and classic BrBa character appearances, while Jim was bothered by pacing.  We also talked about the Aztek of Azteks, dent trash cans, scams both large and small, and much more.  Plus a ton of great feedback, the fans are bringing it from week one!
