Well, well, well. Just when we thought Kim and Jimmy’s relationship was in its death throes, a bit of mail fraud chicanery has breathed new life into it. As with most pieces of seemingly positive news in Better Call Saul, this spells trouble. Let’s break ‘Coushatta’ down, sub-plot by sub-plot: Nacho Varga Gus’s cartel mole made a comeback this week, having apparently recovered from the injuries he sustained back in episode three. His brutal shooting in a staged attack clearly left more than just physical marks on him and, back at the restaurant, he had no time for a dealer turning in a light envelope, promptly ripping out the man’s earring and a large part of his earlobe with it. Back at Nacho’s house, we learned that he has fake ID cards for himself and his father ready – all part of a plan to flee to Manitoba, Canada which is currently on the back-burner. His insanely lavish home was a distraction, though, … [Read more...] about Kim Wexler breaks bad in season-best Better Call Saul episode: Review
Lawyer breaking bad
Breaking Bad is gone, but Walter White may be coming back to television – and maybe even the big screen. The show's creator Vince Gilligan said at Comic-Con on Thursday that there is an excellent chance that the Bryan Cranston character and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman will be in the show's spinoff Better Call Saul at some point. Gilligan, Cranston and Paul were joined by many of their fellow Breaking Bad castmates in the 6,500-seat Hall H to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show. But don't get too excited: Gilligan said the characters will not appear in season 4 of Better Call Saul when it picks up in August. "We don't want to jerk folks around," Gilligan said. "But we would be sorely remiss if these characters didn't appear in the show before it ended." Better Call Saul is a prequel spin-off of Breaking Bad that tracks the rise of a struggling lawyer played by Bob Odenkirk into the go-to attorney for top criminals in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Breaking … [Read more...] about Breaking Bad may be a movie, says creator at 10th anniversary reunion

Donald Trump is spending the week in Florida recharging the batteries at Mar-a-Lago, and who could begrudge him a rare golfing break? The last few days have been action-packed even for him. Many leaders of the free world would be content with either a) celebrating a gesture bombing raid on Syria as “mission accomplished”, in absolute ignorance of that phrase’s resonance; b) repeatedly calling the former FBI director he sacked a “slimeball”; c) humiliating his UN ambassador by letting her announce that new sanctions against Russia were imminent, and reneging on that within hours; or d) implying that the Feds’ raid on his lawyer’s office is up there with Pearl Harbour in terms of days that forever live in infamy, by identifying it as “an attack on our country”. For Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt, any of the above might have sated the appetite for traditional statesmanship. For the titan who with God’s … [Read more...] about Is it me or is Donald Trump’s administration becoming less like The Sopranos and more like Breaking Bad?
On Monday, Sean Hannity walked himself right into an awkward comparison. It happened following the bombshell revelation in a Manhattan courtroom that Trump attorney Michael Cohen's client list included the Fox News host. On his afternoon radio show, Hannity explained that his relationship with Cohen was limited to a few "brief discussions" on business matters. "I might have handed him 10 bucks [and said,] 'I definitely want your attorney-client privilege on this,'" Hannity told listeners Monday afternoon. "Something like that." Online, the "handed him 10 bucks" line immediately launched comparisons to an infamous scene from AMC's smash hit, "Breaking Bad." In a memorable exchange involving one of the shadiest lawyers in television history, attorney Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk, tells the show's meth-dealing main characters to "put a dollar in my pocket" to assure their conversations about criminal misdeeds remain protected. And if you are trying to steer clear of a scandal, … [Read more...] about Analysis: Sean Hannity’s idea of ‘attorney-client privilege’ was right out of ‘Breaking Bad’
