Kaya sana it continues pa... it's filling the void BB left when it ended, well, at least for me.

Nahuli kasi ng mga producers/writers ang kiliti ng mga tao... doing the wrong things for the right reasons...

He's probably realizing that he really has no condition

Another awesome episode. Proof that this show, though assisted by the Breaking Bad fever, really stands on its own.

Fantastic itong big-case-underdog-situation. Then to have Chuck retract back to his "condition" potentially craps Jimmy's case.. Galing. Another awards show.

How many more episodes to go? I will miss this in the off season.

Agree, ang sakit "... You take these shortcuts and suddenly you think you're my peer." and most especially this one "...Slippin' Jimmy with a law degree is like a chimp with a machine gun."

Hala naalala ko na naman yan mga masasakit na salita na yan!  :'( :'( :'(


I think this season has already established that first, Jimmy is a good person, or at least striving to be a good lawyer. And second, Mike is witty and a bad ass.

I'm looking forward to the character transformation and "payback"...

Wake up call. Of all people, sheesh!

And I thought it was the guy at HHM....

Wow, that was a major let down on Jimmy's part. So far, all signs point to 'Saul Goodman. I can now see why he wanted to disown his being a McGill.

Mike is an effin smooth operator. Bad ass indeed

Haven't Mike established that fact way way back on Breaking Bad?    ;)

It was really a good call on the show runner's part to also include Mike's back story in this BB spin-off.

I'm lovin all of it.  ;D

That was a damn good episode. Some heavy sh*t. That speech by the bro was really visceral. it was like a "walker" ate Jimmy's guts. "It's like giving a monkey a machine gun." That was awesome writing.

At this point I've lost most memory of Breaking Bad. I am not necessarily hoping for the two timelines to cross. This show is standalone good.

What Breaking Bad gave this show is the credentials of excellent writing. Viewers had been defined and it's no surprise we like it.

Just finished watching the latest episode. Man, the feels when Chuck lambasted Jimmy. I would want to disown Chuck as a brother after those hurtful words. It was too much.

Legit ang pagka-abogado ni Jimmy. He passed the bar.

Oo nga. Since Jimmy passed the bar, Chuck was one of those who didn't want to hire him. Elitist. But as we have seen with Jimmy's big case, he really didn't have the experience to do it.

But in Chuck's eyes he will NEVER be a lawyer, his school was not prestigious enough (online school??), and he will always be the con artist "Slippin Jimmy" in his eyes (watch scam/billboard scam)..hahaha..Chuck feel that his brother belong only to the Mail Room!

The trust between brothers has now been broken. And it makes more tragic, knowing that Jimmy is going to become Saul Goodman. Not because he was always destined to be a bad guy, but because his brother, to whom he has always looked up, believes he was.

No more Team McGill!

You are right. That revelation may have been pivotal in Jimmy's life. Pity that a good life was stifled. Good because it lead thing to Breaking Bad ;)

I really thought that Chuck is the good guy, caring for his younger brother and Howard is the ahole...I got played by Vince once more ...but I enjoyed it :)

Now we know that his "loser brother" is the foundation that leads to Breaking Bad. :)
