Non of you watched the recap that was on Netflix?

DIRTY DOWNLOADERS


I was watching on Netflix but because I 'acquired' Season 2 of BCS and never watched it on Netflix, it still thought I needed to watch Season 2 and started at S02E01. By the time I'd got it to manually start S03E01, the recap thingy was no longer there so I went in cold.

(Incidentally BCS is the reason I resubbed to Netflix as I felt guilty for downloading it when it's so damn good and it's a Netflix production. I often go weeks without watching a single thing on Netflix but maintain my subscription as I think the content is worth it when I do watch.)

Netflix recaps are available at any time by selecting Seasons, then Trailers And More.

Also, Better Call Saul isn't a Netflix production. It's made by AMC and Sony, the same as made Breaking Bad. Netflix bought the UK streaming rights, is all.

I agree with Hearty: read a summary. I didn't take heed and totally forgot exactly who Mike was going to pop.

Overall it was great. I forgot how much I hate Chuck; the actor is doing a tremendous job of making me hate him. More of this type of thing please.

It was interesting also that some slow lingering shots can really add to the atmosphere without feeling like a vain attempt to be all kooky and arthouse and shit. I'm looking at you Neon demon.

S03E02 was superb. I realise this sounds like a back-handed compliment but it's almost daringly slow sometimes, totally sucks you into the characters and the situation, and then time fucking bends and the end credits roll and you're like, 'Eh, not already, I NEED MORE BETTER CALL SAUL DAMMIT'.

Lovely opening sequence with Mike too, not a single word spoken for the first ten minutes or so?

It was another good episode but:

Why was Jimmy so nervous, hopeless and obvious about watching the guy in the diner? It seemed totally at odds with his character.

Yes I wondered that myself. Everything in the programme is so deliberate so there must be a reason for it but considering Jimmy's background as a hustler/con artist sort of chap, that kind of thing really shouldn't faze him at all.

Watched the first couple of eps. As enjoyably languid as ever.

Regarding Mike and his radio-fettling:

I understood ultimately what he was trying to achieve by turning the tracker on themselves, but I don't understand how he did it. How did he do it? I might have been distracted at the time/an idiot.

He bought an identical tracker and replaced the one on his car for that one. Then he took their tracker and connected it to a radio to run the battery down so they would come out to swap it out, only instead of taking their dead one they were taking his.
