Finished the 2nd season, really strong writing all season long :bow:

Things between Jimmy and Chuck have been escalating steadily and the finale duly followed the same path. But I do hope, though, that in the third series they will move on quite swiftly from Chuck. It's been really well written between him and Jimmy, but it's starting to feel a bit too mundane to watch what's basically a family feud. There's not that much at stake there. Younger brother trying to be a lawyer and older brother not approving of it and his methods. They need to get Jimmy involved in some more serious shit than trying to please his brother and girlfriend.

Mike's story line has offered something heavier, but there I didn't quite understand why he stole the cash from Hector? And then feels the need to kill him, too? I thought these things didn't sit well with how Mike's been portrayed so far. It felt to me like they only wrote this story line for him to put some action and danger in the show. Had a glued on feel to it.

Anyway, the writing of the main story has been so good that I am looking forward to season 3 to see where it goes from here.

Try to feel the same way when your grand daughters life (with an already massive guilt trip attached to her) is threatened.

God i love this show, love all the characters. I recommend reading the AV Club analysis reviews after each episode to understand the show's brilliance better.

http://www.avclub.com/tv/better-call-saul/

This last episode, "Chicanery," has to be among the top 3 in the series. All masks are off now, this might be the birth of Saul Goodman.

Spoiler:
Think about it, now that Chuck's mental illness, deep scorn, jealousy, and even hatred toward's Jimmy, and arrogance are in display, Jimmy can erase the Mcgill from his name and that way he forgets about ever trying to make Chuck proud of him since that's impossible (he moves on) and Chuck in someway gets his wish of Jimmy losing his license in the sense that Jimmy Mcgill esquire will be no more.

Maybe its because I waited and binged it but I felt this season was the best by far and was overall fantastic. Amazing stuff, easily among the best TV out there now. Finale was haunting.

I knew he would die by death via lantern but suicide never crossed my mind. And no one will ever know he killed himself, everyone will think it was an accident, only we the audience know what actually happened.

Yeah didn't think he'd jeopardise his easy cash flow with his old people following to make amends like that after being closer to Saul than he ever has before

But I guess it's a feel good tie off that drives the plot forward I.E he'll end up representing another group when he's back practising law. Probably criminals. Although there might be another step before that.

It's hard for me to like this show when I dislike so many of the main characters. Actually Kim is the only one I like and sympathize with.

Glad Chuck is gone though, he was easily the worst character in the show. Hopefully the next season is more dramatic and action packed because this was just as slow as the 2nd season. I feel like Better Calll Saul is yet to reach the heights of the first season.
