Yeah, it was a good episode, and the cinematography is definitely good. I imagine they've got a lot of the same crew working on it. Those mountains around the house of the guy who wanted to secede from the U.S. were beautiful. That transition from night to day when Mike was sitting in his little booth was good too, especially since you saw the same car driving away as it happened, or at least that was what I saw. Maybe it's one of those "American Night" things, which is a term for filming in daylight, but adjusting brightness (and whatever else) to make it look like night. But who the hell knows with all of the fancy digital tricks they've got now. Oh, and that part last week with the brother running out to steal the paper with his space blanket under the electrical poles was done perfectly.

Aaaand also that shot through the peephole in this episode was great, though it was surely some kind of digital composite.

House of Cards S3 is too incredible right now for me to pay much attention to Better Call Saul. They've got equally good cinematography imho, though the latter allows some great outdoor/scenic shots, for obvious reasons.

so far every ep of BCS has been engaging & interesting. This is more than can be said of every episode of BB. Time will tell..

i agree. i think they are getting better. either that or the show is growing on me. bb had some bad episodes but easily the worst one was "fly" where they chased around a stupid fly all episode.

thank Bob I can't remember that one.. I do remember getting to the end of a lot of eps and saying "what the fuck was that? that fucking sucked..". that happens a lot with The Walking Dead too..... shame..

That was probably the best one yet. It was like a standalone movie about Mike.

I like the show, but it's kind of slow. I don't know if it's just because they are still doing character development, but I hope the plot picks up and Saul gets himself into all kind of wacky hijinx soon.

Well, he owns a van, right? Oh no wait... that's House of Cards. This is the one where Mork meets Mindy, right? :neutral:

another great episode i thought. the show (at least for me) keeps getting better and better. mike did his first job for james tonight so i'm sure we will see them working together for the last few episodes. :thumb:

I enjoyed it. Mrs. Kettleman is crazy hot, emphasis on crazy. That's a dangerous combination irl.

So, finally on episode 7, I realized that Chuck(Michael McKean) is Lenny! :dunce: :lol:
For the young ones, that's Lenny & Squiggy from the Laverne & Shirley show.

I've been really enjoying the series so far. :thumb:

I finished Breaking Bad last night, gutted it's over. And yes I do realise I'm two years behind everyone else. Time to start on Better Call Saul!

For me, in order series 4,5,1,3,2

I've never watched The Wire. How does this compare to BB. I know of some who say it's better. Is it? Or is it just different?

So far, all the eps have been engaging and not one of them has been boring. That's a lot more than can be said for Breaking Bad. I predict Jimmy will not "become" Saul until either the last episode of this season or the first of next.

The Wire is better, the Wire is the best! You've probably heard this a thousand times by now

Do yourself a favor and watch the damn series already! :lol:
