    The more I watch Mike, the more I get pissed that a guy like Walter White killed him.

    The look of horror on Kim's face when she realized it was all still an act was amazing.

    Its pretty much Peter Goulds show. He ran the show on his own in season 4. Gilligan is only in on the development.

    If I just ate the flour, butter, and milk, I'd be disappointed.

    If I mixed them all in a bowl and slurped it up with a spoon, I'd be sick.

    Mix it right and bake it for 4 seasons...now I got a squat cobbler cooking.

    convoluted way of saying I think it's the whole brew of this show I love, moreso than any oh shit level moments that make it what it is.

    I cant wait to see what happens with S5. From the opening scenes in Nebraska, to the transition to Saul Goodman coming full circle.

    Next season will be very close to the beginning of Breaking Bad timeline.

    Theres gotta eventually be a Hank and Jesse came.

    Chuck's grave said 2003 and a year passed to get to Jimmy's reinstatement so we're somewhere in 2004. Breaking Bad took place in 2008. They could do another time jump but there's still a lot of story to tell with Lalo just showing up and Nacho still being around.

    Have they determined how many seasons they are going to do?

    I'd imagine it's going to go to six at least. I dont they will hamstring themselves in to the extended Season 5 to wrap it up. That's a lot of time to pass through 16 episodes.

    I think another 30 episodes is probably the sweet spot.

    It's pretty wild how both shows parallel each other thematically. Both started out as lightheaded fish out of water shows and progressed into dark character driven dramas.

    Great fucking season btw

    Possibly bordering on too many jmo. I'm not one to discourage great storytelling, but I like a story that knows exactly where it's going, and would applaud such a methodical show accelerating it's pace now that the end game is fully in the picture.

    Plenty of unfinished business with nacho/lalo, same with whatever Kim fallout has to happen, and I wouldn't mind a glimpse of full blown Saul and some BB interaction. Maybe ten episodes is too few for that, maybe not.

    A couple of truncated seasons wouldn't bother me, everything rushed into a final season 5 just might(but that's about execution), but a breakneck pace as a deliberate departure from a decidedly deliberate show feels like it could be incredible.

    Call me crazy but I think Jimmy turning to Kim and saying "It's all good man" would have been a decent ending to the series. They showed the metamorphosis from Jimmy to Saul, that was the mission. But I'm not going to turn down another season or two of Saul/Mike/Gus and hopefully some BB characters too.

    ‘Better Call Saul’ Season 5 Will Explore Kim’s Relationship With Saul Goodman

    [​IMG]


    There hasn’t been much spoken about the upcoming fifth season of Better Call Saulsince season four wrapped up outside of its potential to collide with the Breaking Badmovie in the works. Showrunner Peter Gould, however, recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly<?em> and offered a taste of what’s in store. As one might expect after the events of last season, what’s to come is more Saul Goodman and much less Jimmy McGill.

    Logistically, however, Jimmy — now that he’s an attorney again — has to amass clients. As expected, that will entail recruiting people from the “world of selling drop phones.” In addition, Jimmy will likely call upon the veterinarian, Caldera, who Gould refers to as the “Craig’s List for the underworld in Albuquerque.” (This is great news for fans of actor Joe DeRosa, who plays Caldera, as it would portend an expanded role in the next season). In building a roster of clients, however, the “situations may require [Saul] to do things and turn a blind eye to things that Jimmy McGill would not be able to stomach.”

    In other words, the character will be more Saul than Jimmy this year, and while the storyline may intersect with Walter White or Jesse Pinkman at some point, Saul is a show primarily about three characters, Jimmy McGill and Mike Ehrmantraut and Kim Wexler. Gould said he is “desperate” to cross streams, but would only dip into Breaking Bad if it advances the story of those three characters.

    In the meantime, Gould suggests that the question viewers should ask themselves as the show heads into its fifth season is, “We know who Saul Goodman is, but who is Saul Goodman to Kim Wexler?” In other words, will Kim abandon Saul Goodman? Or adapt to Saul Goodman? We have witnessed Kim get caught up in a number of Slippin’ Jimmy schemes, but Wexler has, so far, drawn a line between Jimmy and Saul. Will she cross that line? Will it blur? Will the outsized presence of Saul pull Kim into his orbit? Is Kim more devoted to the law and her career or is she more devoted to Jimmy/Saul?

    That expects to be the major thrust of season five, although Saul will not lose sight of Gene Takovic:

    In some ways, Gene is very enigmatic. In some ways, he’s the opposite of Saul Goodman because he speaks so very little, he’s so afraid. But I’m fascinated by that situation and by the question of: is there still any chance of redemption or ray of light in this guy’s life after all the terrible things that he’s done, now that he’s run away and hidden himself in Omaha?”

    As much as I might like to see Gene find his inner Jimmy and redeem himself, we can’t lose sight of the fact that real Jimmy is a grifter, too. He’s just not a grifter willing to put out a hit on a client, as he did with Jesse. The “real” Jimmy plays fast and loose with the law, and if Kim can’t stop him from becoming Saul Goodman, I’m not so sure she can mold the man she wants him to be out of Gene Takovic, either.

    We will find out when Better Call Saul returns, and while season five is not likely the last for the series, “we are closer to the end than to the beginning,” Gould tells EW.

    Any idea when season 4 will be available on Netflix? I didn't watch when it aired on tv because I wanted to be able to binge the whole thing. Miraculously, I haven't seen any spoilers so far

    Its on netflix in Denmark and probably most of Europe, so if you can find a way to switch country you can watch it.

    Because of issues with "talent needs." I am assuming a lot of that is the whole Vince Gilligan making a Breaking Bad movie thing taking up his time.
