A good guy who does something bad? Or a bad guy who does something good?





Before you scroll down and read this post. Know that the information below would likely contain spoilers from 'Nacho'. Though...I'd recommend you just go through the whole season (even  Season 2!)....just in case...um...I drop a hint unintentionally!  





My history on doing Timestamp Commentary dates back to Season 5 of Homeland. The reception to the idea had positives and negatives. I stuck with it for a couple of episodes, then moved to Tumblr (the home of 'the fan'). While on Tumblr I held off sharing my whole commentary, and just left it for readers who initially enjoyed reading my posts and requested it directly.

 1:15 - younger Saul in jail speaking to Chuck - I just realised that the show doesn't give headings (e.g. '10 years ago') whatsoever. It's making sure you're paying attention. No freebies. Pure serialised show.



2:46 - An allusion that Chuck and Jimmy are brothers - see? Just like that! No spelling it out. One thing that bothered me about Limitless is the recurring replay of that scene with Eddie Morra (first meeting with Brian)



10:17 - Saul getting a couple of things together - why do I get the feeling like that scene would be better than all the episodes of one TV reboot I was looking forward to? 




10:36 - Saul drives up to a phone booth - oh Saul you hero! That's why you couldn't sleep!!! It wasn't to ring that guy (though you were probably tempted but then remembered your promise to Chuck) 



12:00 – Saul’s idea to convey information not working - Hahahahaha.....

Episode 3 and I'm still using Saul's name! (Maybe it goes on until I listen to the episode commentary?)


Quotes from Recaps:

  • "As we see in his amusingly gross bathroom negotiation with a prosecutor who can’t even keep defendants’ names straight, this guy works harder than anyone." - Judy Berman (Flavorwire)
  • "One of my favorite moments in this episode is watching Mike mouth the letters to a crossword-puzzle answer as Jimmy stews by the parking lot gate, a few stickers short." - David Segal (New York Times)
  • "...most interesting was Mike’s story about someone winding up 'dead in the Jersey Pine Barrens'. Was that a sly hat-tip from the writers to the classic Sopranos episode?" - Richard Vine (The Guardian)




Note: For parents. I'd recommend you to watch this yourself  first (yep, the whole thing!), before deciding if you would like to give  your  kids the 'nod' to watch it. Better that...than jumping into it  with  them straight away and regretting it. Since 'Better Call Saul' is  highly  serialised....it might not be a good idea to just let your kids  watch  one episode.
