The episode pays tribute to many successful films in the 90's. The sentence on the wall at the start of the episode 'SG was here' is a tribute to The Shawshank Redemption (1994). In addition to this, names of the films Pulp Fiction (1994) and The Usual Suspects (1995) are also mentioned in the episode. See more »


Though set in 2002, the plastic bag that Jimmy has his cell phone in while in the pool is a Ziplock bag with "Easy-Open Tabs," which did not hit the market until 2015. See more »

Not sure where they're going with this yet, but I am intrigued.
23 February 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This premiere reminded me a lot of Mad Men. On the surface, there doesn't seem to be much going on. But there are heaps of atmosphere and interesting glimpses into well developed characters. My one issue is that I could have used a little more plot and more humour or darkness. They've clearly gone for a slow-burn approach, and I respect that. I think they pulled it off well.

The episode opens with another flash-forward to the world post Breaking Bad. I hope we get a bit more of that this season, although what we got here was great. After that, the episode picks up right where the first season left off. It's almost a bit disconcerting; it is clearly designed for binging straight from season 1 into season 2. Jimmy has a sort of mid-life crisis. His relationship with Kim takes a new turn. He considers a new job. Mike deals with a frustrating client. I enjoyed seeing Mike, although this client character (who appeared in season 1) has become so naive that it becomes almost unbearable to watch. Hopefully he won't become a regular character. The ending of the episode, the "switch" this episode is named after, is absolutely brilliant. Such a great character moment.

All in all, a fine opening. I am curious to see what direction this new season takes.
