Thoughts On: Better Call Saul Episode 3...More Sexy Robot Voice

         Well now the show is picking up. I don't mind saying that this was probably the best one so far...and Mike has done what everyone keeps wishing that Morgan from The Walking Dead would do...Join...the...plot...
Kim is also a promising character...hope she found her own way to Cinnabon

The Plot Is Unfolding Quite Well:
From the robot voice to the camping scene, this episode gave me a solid feel for the show's pace going forward. That said, I'm really glad this show hasn't made Saul's court room drama, a main part of the show. I knew things were going to get better when Nacho said he wasn't the one who kidnapped the Brady Bunch.

The Flash Back:
We finally got our first
flashback(with a convincingly young Odenkirk), and it was more than decent...and no I don't expect it to necessarily impact the plot. Even Breaking Bad had season 1 flash backs (Walt and Skyler tour the house) that served character development well, but we could have lived without them...

Mike's Wise Words:
Not only did Mike get more screen time, but he completely changed the course of the plot instead of just asking Saul to pay for parking. Without his Philly expertise, Saul would never have gone on a quest to find the camping Brady Bunch...

The Money: 
Should Saul take it? Well, I guess not...because that would be illegal. Will he take it? He'd better because we need him to uphold the Albuquerque tradition of pocketing bags of money. How will he bail Nacho out if he makes a deal with the Kettlemans? Especially since he already made that phone call stating that he found them...

           Next weeks episode should absolutely positively make things get worse for Saul. It's way too early for anyone to die, but...wait, never mind, RIP Crazy 8...
