    Yes, but it doesn't happen often.

    Some predictable but still great Mike action this episode -- he's just such a great character. I also appreciated having seen him deal with Walt in BB, then deal with this guy here. Very interesting comparison and contrast, and his whole speech on good/bad criminals.

    However, the big thing: The last five minutes. Heart-rending. I think I gasped out loud once or twice. Bob Odenkirk really is so good (and Michael McKean is as well, but Odenkirk just really inhabits this role so perfectly).

    Season finale next week.

    Pretty accurate review:

    I usually don't post open spoilers until 24 hours have passed, so I'll spoiler it... I just have to talk about this one.

    I will never like this show. Breaking Bad was too good, way too good in fact, to have a spinoff. Spinoffs should exist only to redeem lesser shows, not drain a certain element of imagination and mystery from elite ones. And Saul Goodman is such a great character! What a pity.

    Did you actually watch it?
    Or is this just some form of television activism?

    I think calling it a "spinoff" is highly trivializing/marginalizing the show and not a term I'd use for it, after having seen all the current episodes.

    You mean Jimmy McGill. I don't think you have watched it because if you did, you would know that. I don't think it's even a spinoff, it's it's own show. It's a great show, better than BB even.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I've known the characters real name sine BB thank you very much. His alias is just what I will be forever used to calling him. And for the record I've seen 1 solitary episode. Left me dry, though of course my preconceived prejudices played into that, not ashamed to admit it.

    To your question: the latter for the most part lol

    To your statement: Maybe so, but officially speaking and judging by how it has been advertised, it is indeed a spinoff.
