Did You Know?


When Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim (Rhea Seehorn) are watching a movie together, Jimmy asks Kim "What is this weird fascination you have with stories of men trapped on the North Pole?" Kim quickly refutes this question by stating that Ice Station Zebra (1968) takes place on the North Pole, while The Thing (1982) takes place on the South Pole. This is a direct reference to episode 3.11 of Breaking Bad (2008), Breaking Bad: Abiquiu (2010), when Skyler (Anna Gunn) opens a check made to her from "Ice Station Zebra Associates", which is apparently Saul's name for the fictitious company under which they are to carry out their money laundering scheme.

After Mike puts fresh batteries in the wiggly pig toy, it thrashes about as it is supposed to. But in the following shot (long shot of Kaylee -- the actress Abigail Zoe Lewis -- playing with it) it isn't active; Miss Lewis has to push it around with her hands to make it look like it's working.

The Setup
20 May 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Jimmy is feeling his oats. He is treated like royalty by his new firm. Unfortunately, what he sold out was his spontaneity. He is answerable to the big boss. He decides to make a video to entice victims to come forward. But he doesn't run it past the partners first. So what he have is a highly successful ploy that is rejected, not because of what it accomplished, but out of pique. Good old brother Chuck is at the center of this. We know that trouble lies ahead for Jimmy. HIs naive being is, on the one hand a strength, on the other, a liability. Cut to Mike who is getting into the deep stuff again. It's only a matter of time before the "Breaking Bad" syndrome will rear its head.
