Prank was good. Those cops were also very observant.

WHAT DOES THE SWITCH DO?!

Better Call Saul Insider podcast mentioned that it was essentially a lucky shot to get a hummingbird to look at the camera in the establishing shot with Price and Nacho

Nice I didn't remember that.

Watched last night. Good episode. I don't understand why Kim is completely ok with Jimmy lying to the police but freaks out because of the "fabricated evidence".

The guy that plays the Hummer owner is comedian Mark Proksch. He went on live TV (7 times) pretending to be a yo-yo expert, instead of doing tricks he talks about how sad his life is -- or so I've heard, I haven't had time to watch the video yet. Vince Gilligan found it so hilarious that he had to put him in the show.

Lolz! I only watched the first couple minutes of that but it's hilariously awkward. I'll go watch the rest later.

I had the same question about that scene. She said "you can tell a good story". Did she not believe it was reality until he talked about the tale? No. She had to have known.

Writers admitted that they thought Jimmy was becoming Saul too quickly in season 1 so season 2 they are pumping the brakes and want to play around with Jimmy more. I like seeing Jimmy be a good lawyer on the Sandpiper case.

Is this the last we see of Price? I am guessing yes?

Will listen to podcasts later this week and have more to say

This is the best show on TV right now. I love everything about it. I never thought I would get so tense and nervous over a commercial. Why didn't Jimmy show them in first?! Is he going to lose his job over this? And Chuck calling him out in the meeting... And the bus scene. It's all so good.

Jonathan Banks is also so good in this. It's great he gets about 40% screen time for his story. His daughter in law made up the gun shots to have him move them?

I love this show. It just has perfectly believable dialogue and scenes that happen in every day scenario. There aren't over the top coincidences that drive the plot like most shows.

I think he is very hurt by his daughter blatantly lying to him and forging evidence to get him to give them more money. Not so much that she lied, but because of how elaborate it is. He will move her, but I think the big bear is sad :(

Great catch on the Youtube video of the douche Stock Broker guy. I totally forgot about that scene. Love the subtle Breaking Bad stuff in BCS!!

My podcast is offended that people think Stacy is trying to take advantage of Mike with the gunshots and possible bullet hole. Does anyone think she's NOT doing that? They firmly believe that she is just paranoid that her dead husband's questionable past is out to get her.

Last episode I had a hard time understanding what was so wrong about the commercial other than Jimmy did it behind Cliff's back, I guess now I understand a little more.

Mike, Taco, and Tuco was some good stuff. Mike is a very clever man, but would Tuco really be locked up without bail?

I thought the same at first Ty but I think it was the "image" of HMM, they are very dignified and what not dont want to "stoop" to the attack level that it portrayed. Also maybe a hint of jealousy he was able to do so well.

Loved that Mike scene! Incredible! I think he probably has priors? even if he didnt, whos going to come forward and pay bail? his cartel? Most bonds have to show proof of income and drug dealers seem to not have the best book work (wonder why!)


I love this show, favorite on TV right now. Every episode is a masterpiece. I listen to the podcast with the editor, Kelly Dixon and a few others. They are phenomenal and whatever they create, i will watch.

Mike doesn't want to do Nacho's plan because it has too many areas to go wrong, but I think his plan does as well. He had to make a lot of assumptions:
-could hit the car just right
-Tuco would be using (easy one I guess)
-Tuco would be willing to rob him for the cash
-the cops would get there when he wanted them to
-Tuco would allow Nacho to leave before cops got there
-Tuco would pull a gun on him
-Tuco would punch him in front of cops
-etc


Side note. Was the gun dealer the same guy Walt used to buy his revolver?
