Well this show is fast turning into the best new show that nobody knows what to do with. I went in expecting precious little and it has slowly but steadily upped its game.

That was a pivotal episode, and an excellent one as well.

Poor Jimmy, he just wants redemption, his brother's acceptance and to work alongside him.

The Parking Garage looked very familiar....

It's a bit of a relief for Hamlin to not be a cartoon character bad guy as well.

Exactly. I think it has gotten great faster than Breaking Bad did. I've been watching it the day after it airs rather than saving a bunch of episodes and marathoning, which is the first time in a long time I've done that for a tv show. That'll change now that Mad Men and Game of Thrones are returning, but still.

That scene at the end this week was just soul crushing.

I know, it was a complete emotional suckerpunch when he turned that scene around and forced Chuck to be straight with him.

The last time I did a marathon on any show was probably when DVD releases were my only way of getting onto them, or when the show itself already wrapped up years ago. Now, despite myself, I just watch it each week (though if it's Mad Men, you bet I'll be doing some marathon rewatches).

Chuck made a big mistake. Jimmy was the only one who was sensitive to Chuck's quirks. Chuck's gonna be a mess without Jimmy in his corner.

Good luck driving yourself to HHM in your space-blanket lined power suit, Chuck.

On the one hand i guess i can see Chucks resentment, i mean, American Samoa U?

But seriously Jimmy is really trying to be a better guy and certainly is a good brother to him so you have to let all of that go.

Chuck has basically just lit the fuse for slippin Jimmy to become Saul

Yeah, Jimmy has spent way too much time working his ass off for his law career and going to bat for Chuck for this to be about shortcuts. Clearly Chuck is insecure about this and is fronting about it.

I'm not quite as in love with the show as everyone else seems to be -- but I think it's solid. We've had one great episode, and lots of solid episodes, but there's a lot that doesn't work so well. I'm still watching, and hoping it ends well.

Oh wow, I think the run from the Mike episode till now has been stellar. I suppose it helps that Mike was my favourite character from BB, and Saul was a close second. Or maybe I'm just a sucker for backstory. But yeah, I'm loving this.

Eta - yeah, I don't think sucker for backstory even covers it. Jimmy/Saul's story has just been so well done...both written and acted, period. The cinematography's excellent. It's a prestige drama that has outdone the first season of BB, easily. That's possibly in part because of familiarity with some of the characters, but I don't think that's entirely it.

I think Mike is the bright shining light in the series. I found the first few episodes kind of weak, I think any season of BB outshines this. The shooting has gotten better and more creative, I just don't think Odenkirk is in the same league as Cranston so there's not that center of gravity holding it together and giving it that race towards doon. He's fine, but he was always a supporting character, not an easy thing to carry a show.

I also find Kim to be such a generic female character who shows up to encourage the boys and ask clarifying questions for the sake of the audience. Not the actress' fault, it's just a weak role.

Howard Hamlin is a wonderful prick isn't he?

Interesting season finale. Certainly set things in motion for next season. Too bad we have to wait until next January to see it.
