Did You Know?


Steven Ogg, the voice actor of Trevor Phillips from Grand Theft Auto V (2013) makes an appearance. Also, the joke about him having a lot of guns on him is a reference to the nature of the video game series. See more »


While in court arguing the Restraining Order, the clock on the wall has stopped by evidence that the second hand isn't moving. This is a trick by directors who don't want to see time advance too much during multiple takes. See more »


[first lines]
Jimmy McGill: [about nearby electrical transformer] Don't worry about that, all right? Look down. Look at the grass. Kick off your shoes like this. When was the last time you did that? Feels good, right? Yeah. Grass between your toes. Feels nice. Yeah.
Chuck McGill: Yeah. Well, I think maybe Maybe it's time we go in. We got a lot of work to do. We need to get ready. *You* need to get ready.

One of the best and most important episodes yet!!
1 April 2015 | by PulpPhictionSee all my reviews

Another Monday, Better Call Saul delivers one hell of a show! All the things that made Breaking Bad an amazing show were in this episode. From the screenplay to the cinematography, it was just all so good.

I'm going to keep this short, because if I ramble on and on I will likely spoil something. Frankly this was just a great episode, carrying on from a great cliffhanger, and setting up another one at the end. There were outstanding subplots going on throughout the episode with some excellent new actors as well as Better Call Saul 'veterans,' if you can call them that already (Jimmy, Chuck, Howard, etc).

Anyway, watch this episode as soon as you can if you haven't already. Another stunning installment from Gilligan, Gould and company, and most definitely not the last.
