I wonder if they're just finding ways to use Patrick Fabian to honour some contract they had in place previously. Hard to imagine too many engaging plot lines involving HHM.

I’m enjoying this season so far. Sure nothing that hits the heights of Chicanery but likewise nothing that hits the lows of the first two episodes of last season which I found boring.

It is slow season for sure but I don’t find that a bad thing, the character development is engaging. I wonder when we see Lalo this season. Interesting that Vince has managed to make so much of a single scene in BB where Saul namedrops Ignacio and Lalo that at the time probably wasn’t meant to be significant. Still not clear at the moment how Jimmy and Nacho’s worlds connect.

Some theories going round that we will see a full season of Gene. Not sure i can that stretching beyond an episode personally

S4E7

Well that was probably the most significant episode of the whole show so far. Jimmy is now full-on Saul, and it was really sad to see their relationship deteriorate through the episode. After the slowness of earlier in the season (and show), it all felt so fast.

To end on that cliffhanger though...can next Monday come already pls

I take it back, I really enjoyed the lab scenes. Coincidently on our breaking bad rewatch this evening we hit the episode where Gus first shows Walt the lab.. Itslikepoetrytheyrhyme.gif

And regarding the Kim and Jimmy thing, it was indeed sad to see them diverge so much. He's a complete dickhead and there's only so far his act can take him before she sees right through it. Kind of got the impression hes trying to get her to leave him..

Also, another potential breaking bad link - Mesa Verde, in BB there's a bank called Mesa that's featured prominently (it's where Walt gets the money for the RV). I wonder if it's the same bank but there's been a partner split..

Also, I don't like where this is going for Kim, because that shot of her in her office next to Jimmy feeding the fish looked ominously like the blinds were bars. Hope she doesn't wind up in prison because of him or sleeping with the fish :dread:

Increasingly suspecting this Family Guy sketch was the entire inspiration for Mike's storyline.

Family guy is one of the worst things on TV, please don't infect this thread.

I wasn't mad on this episode, although it pushed time along swiftly, It's sad to see how things are going between Jimmy and Kim.

Anyone else feel this season has been a bit weak so far?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Yeah, it's definitely the weakest season. Still beautifully made but this one seems to be plodding.

S4E8

Well that started off as a pretty lame episode, tbh i’m finding the superlab scenes with the Germans pretty boring. But the Kim and Jimmy scenes this ep were absolutely epic. Just when you thought Kim and Jimmy were done, their latest scam totally reignites the relationship. I’m starting to feel that maybe the reason we don’t see Kim in the BB world is that she goes too far in one of these scams...

Also, the website http://www.freewill-baptistchurch.com/ is actually live! I know it’s a +1 number so not good for you guys, but if you call the number you hear Jimmy’s voice as the pastor!

Bit underwhelmed by Lalo’s entrance, seemed a bit of a low-key way to introduce him. I’m sure things will spice up in later eps

P.S. That bit with Mrs. Nguyen giving Jimmy the cucumber water was a nice touch. Cucumber water not just for customer only!

I genuinely think this is the best season yet. Sure it's missed a lot of the big action set pieces that BB had but I'm just so invested in pretty much every character in the show that I don't care how slow things are proceeding, I just want to see what happens next.

Can't believe there's only 2 episodes left :(

Great laughs this episode. Those pictures of smiling Huel were epic.

Overall i prefer season 3 but i still think this is strong season. Agreed it is slow burn but that’s the nature of the show, either you like it or you don’t.

I've still been enjoying it a lot, and there have been some great moments but I would agree that this is the weakest season so far. I think the fact that Vince Gilligan wasn't as heavily involved this year is starting to show.

I also think they are struggling more that I thought they would to merge the style of early BCS into BB, I've not watched episode 8 yet but certainly in episode 7 there was an awful lot of crunching of gears as they tried to force things into the direction they needed to go rather than finding a way of it progressing there naturally.

Absolutely still one of the best things on TV mind, and in the context of the complete season I may feel differently about it all!

Oh and Kim is definitely going to end up on prison isn't she :dread:

I reckon that in that box you saw Saul take out of the wall will be full of memories of his past life. Chucks letter, the top from the tequilla bottle etc.

I don’t know, I think the show will surprise us with what happens to her as it seems too obvious that she will die/go to prison.

My guess is she will need to disappear and that’s where Saul finds out the details of the vacuum cleaner repair guy

Kim is probably going to lose here career and could potentially top herself. I'ts interesting that she likes the devioius Jimmy more than before. I reckon that German guy Kai is gonna be dead soon..

I think that all the Germans will be killed. Before it was just Kai being a pain in the arse, now the foreman guy is drunkenly revealing plans? Too risky to let any of them live, Mike or maybe some of Gus’s other men will take them all out as soon as the job has been completed.
