"This what do you think about L. Kapito. It's getting beat. You're my hero Jesse. Yes to the man up you think. Skinny probably has the happiest day of success or at least since Camino Robert Forester is the ultimate winner in the breaking bad universe. Yeah I think that's good content with his life. He feels like he's got some purpose. He's got very very clear lane. Made these guys he's made. He's made a lot of money. He does his business in a very cautious way. He doesn't take risks. That are GONNA get him into trouble. And I don't think that we're GONNA modify that story any further unfortunately given Robert Forces passing. So yeah he probably will Max out as the most winningest character of the two shows but I think like even like Schuyler like she gets to live but she's now having to work overtime like she's working harder than their situation is more destitute than when what was working the car wash and now she has like the stigma of being heisenberg widow. Maybe Marie seems like she is like finding some strength and resolve and breaking bad at the end of it but she's still like estranged with her sister and she's been widowed as well like those are the happy endings so I don't think unless this is a very different show when you think about who the main characters are on better call Saul one of them blows up one of them gets shot in the guts and gets liquefied in a barrel and one of them get sent to Omaha Cinnabar's for the rest of his day and those are the ones we know about sure to think that Kim is going to get any fate that is at least Sunnier than skywards bait. I think at this point is setting yourself up for disappointment. Rob Sunnier. Scholars is that is that is that something I I mean the Kim Wexler Journey. I think is definitely like an interesting what it feels like that. This show started off as Jimmy. Mcgill story but I really feel like that. The eclipse of the Jimmy Storyline with the Kim story line. I think was complete here in season five because I think that this character is probably more akin to Walter White in terms of where she started what her intentions are. And where it might go than Jimmy. Where you know that that the nobleness of purpose. That Kim has where she wants to work with all these people. And you know protect these people who you know. Be a defender for those who have no defense. And she wants to be the she wants to do this. And now she's all saying that the end justifies the means. Which is Walter White? You know this is my family. I have cancer. I have to do all this. I'm going to break the law and I'm doing these things and you know who cares if you know. These people get addicted to drugs or or whatever and again the the ends justify the means and I think that where what we saw breaking bad. You can't do that just a little bit. It's sort of that. Gets you have an ego when it gets harder and harder to walk away and I do feel like that. That's more Kim's trajectory than it ever was for Jimmy. What was Jimmy's nobleness? Of purpose of he just wanted to be with. Kim Right Right. That's really really good. The comparison I think like when you think about like Walter White wants to cook the cleanest purist method town. Kim wants to conduct like the cleanest purist line town. She wants to champion for the people and their mechanisms of doing this stuff. He's doing it for his family. She's doing it for people who deserve her talent who deserve her quality but think about the lives that are being ruined in the in the pursuit of that certainly for Heisenberg eight is a deep deep pit of bodies that he left behind for Kim. There have been some footprints along the way the type of shit she's talking about doing to Howard. Hamlin is is really really dark and that is like her crazy is in the basement crazy in the basement. Rather crazy is a different show. I don't think she's in the basement. Thinks she's elsewhere. The new blue to do math so I think that that's a really good comparison and again speaks to why. I'm so impressed with this season. And the way that it turned a corner in this way of like you just didn't think that you were watching breaking bad for Ken You start you. Were watching the breaking bad origin story for Jimmy and yeah that's still true but like the surprised it's all it's all been a lot of surprise along the way 'cause you keep thinking like I don't want Jimmy to turn into Saul Goodman. I like him. I want better for him. All of this stuff but like you know that. That's his destination and you just. You never really quite think that with Kim but I think now that we know that that's the intention that the show wants to get a little bit darker with this character that the road map is there and as you really astutely put it rob. I like the track of how Heisenberg and she is is very very plain to see now and her moral flexibility. That's the thing is she was seemingly rigid at some point and she didn't even want Jimmy's Halpin digging her way out. You don't save me. I save me. She was really doing it with hard work and it seemed to me like if you look back over the course of better call. Saul there's the switch that flips that causes her to go out on her own. I later going in in house Schweiker Coakley but the the switch that flips is when she secures Mesa Verde and she thinks she has done enough to get the praise that she so richly deserves and Howard Hamlin keeps her out in the fields and does not allow her to come back into the fold. That is a breaking point. Four Kim on on on some level and that breaking point has led her down this path. Now she isn't making these bad choices on bad choice road. She doesn't get into the game right away but she starts dipping her feet into the water I think and she starts feeling on some level like well is the hard work really worth it. Because where does it get you? Maybe you need to get an edge. Maybe you need to work smarter and harder. And maybe you need to do things a little bit differently. And maybe Jimmy McGill is the guy that's showing me this that you can work an edge or you can do these things to get ahead and as long as you keep this moral code. You're fine well now. The moral code starting to go out the window and she's justifying it by saying like I said it's some like steroid version of the trolley problem where instead of letting the trolley diverting it so that only one person is killed instead of however many people are on the tracks. She's pressing the gas down on the trolley to run over that one person and that's not a good deal right like that isn't just moral relativism or her trying to be flexible with that. That is really going all in saying. I'm going to make this choice and I'm going after it and we had an email from Chris from New York who observed that. It isn't just Kim that that this show does that in rob. You're I think you're right to point out the Walter White if at all But Chris also pointed out that Mike is digging himself deeper and following his own choices. I think Mike calls applying the handout. Goss can't see past his own selfish goals and revenge to avoid his eventual ending in breaking bad. So it isn't just that it's with camera Walter. White these comparisons are there. I think just overall this story better call Saul. Breaking bed is about these choices we make and Mike spare choice road speech really encapsulates a lot of that so I think that's a really good observation. Speaking of observations a lot of people were observing. That maybe it wasn't maybe Kim is not going to be vacuum cleaner way. And maybe that's not. The ending is coming for her MATT FROM. Newfoundland wanted to know if it was possible. What we thought about that still at this point. If we thought that was possible pat a from Maryland. Patty observed that maybe just maybe be if if it is gene calling Kim at the beginning of this season. If that's how gene is going to handle this then how could it be that? Kim was vacuum cleaners away. Gene wouldn't know where Kim was so rob. What is your thought? What are your thoughts in this? Do you think that we're going to see him? Being Robert Forster see. I don't go to the red. It's of better. Call Saul or anything like that but has been talked about where to go back to the flash forward that we saw from last season Antonio where that Saul is with his receptionist. Francesca Francesca Right. And in that scene we see him like getting ready to call Robert Forster but he also gives her the number of his lawyer to call. And we had speculated at the time like is this Howard is it Howard. And I'm bill no way this is Howard at this point. Howard's not gonNA help out Jimmy in a tough spot but could could the information that he's giving to. Francesca actually a be Kim Wexler. That's a good question. I think his exact quote was like Something like where. Are you going to be a November twelfth at some time and he basically says I'm going to be there but if nothing she says I'm going to be there but like if I don't get a phone call from you all be gone so I don't know exactly yeah? He gives her some kind of instructions. They had some sort of plan worked out. There was an. I think you remember that we that we talked about whether it was going to involve Howard. It could be. It could be Kim but she knows. Kim. So it's a little weird because she worked as Kim's assistant as well obviously. I don't know I don't know if Kim could be in that role but I think we have plenty of reason to believe that Kim hasn't been disappeared. Josh where we we don't really get into the back and forth about this in the finale. Where do you stand on this now? If you expect that Kim will be vacuum cleaner it away. At some point now you expect the genus reaching out to her or will reach out to her in the future if she somehow involved in this Francesco. What are your thoughts on the? I think I'm I'm on board. Still an was and remain with Howard. Hamlin being the person that Jimmy is referring or maybe Schweickart is also a possibility but like someone from from that level. I think we've gotten enough material on the board that Howard Hamlin is actually a relatively decent guy if flawed in significant ways but as often like trying to look out for people's souls to some extent and I think rich reichert you could say similar stuff for. He seems like he's always been trying to do things above board. Now Jimmy has some measure of a of a relationship with him. I think that would be less satisfying than sending Francesca to Howard Hamlin. Obviously right now Jimmy has very little love for Howard Hamlin but if Kim really tears him apart and if if Jimmy has like if Jimmy looks on Kim's works and despairs the way that maybe Kim Auto of looked at how Jim Jimmy was taking on Chuck back in the day that some measure of empathy whether or not critical. Whether or not like well think about who you were a couple of years ago. I was like well that was then. This is now that he may have a different point of view on Howard..

"That just occurred to her as she was talking to Howard him on a couple of episodes ago when she quit Mesa Verde. Jimmy said. What's Your Plan. You know what's your plan that's a you know you're GONNA PD cases doesn't keep the lights on what your plan. And I thought he was a real dickhead for saying that. Just risk life and limb to bring home a year's salary but I- Kim's plan. I wonder when this was her plan. Like I wonder how long it's been something that sticks in her crawl. Jimmy Scott this one to two million dollar honeypot. That will come in. When the settlement comes through and that that would enable her tapping into that money would enable her. She's the one who brought up getting married. She's the one who brings up Sandpiper in this episode. Is this something you think. She just thought of when Howard pissed off at the courthouse. Or is this something you think that she's been thinking about a while vis-a-vis her pro bono practice. She had that plan right away. I don't I don't think the listen there aren't. This isn't a comic book. There aren't thought balloons popping up over the character's heads. This is not get that version. No this isn't you know sex in the city. We're not getting like Carrie. Bradshaw I ask monologues about like what do you do when you come into one point two million dollars? There's there's nothing like that but with that said there isn't on the show that connects to me that she's been thinking about. Sandpiper all the way through what does connect to me. Is that Kim and Jimmy have fairly legendary pillow talk. They have fair fairly legendary like intimate moments where they talk scenarios through all the way down the line and that Kim is in a moment right now where and this is something that racy Horn spoke with me about is like. She's been trying to do things by the Book and look at where. It's gotten her if she tried to do things fully by the book. The start of the season was a big contrast to where she ends up at the end of the season if she tried to do things by the book and just let this guy take himself to trial he'd be thrown in jail and instead she goes with like the Jimmy Plan of like convincing this guy to like take. The deal was super upset about that like she was sick time time at the time and I think where we're at with her now over the course of the season and something that has been so gradual as to like not even like fully know that this is what's been going on is I think her accepting that the way that Jimmy does things gets results and we even had a conversation about this. I think in the season. Four finale or very close to the season for endgame which is like. I don't want to do anything like this ever again right when they're at the diner together so I don't WanNa do anything like this and I don't WanNa do this anymore for no reason for. There's no reason I wanna do it again. And now. She's doing this type of stuff again. She's talking about doing it on a very grand scale but for herself she has kind of come to grips with like there. Then it's Maquiavelian. The ends justify the means and if she is going to to dunk on. Howard Hamlin in this way. Then she's going to put it to good use but I don't think I don't think it's been like a long simmering premeditated thing anymore. Then the way that she stands against Laos. Salamanca is a premeditated Take Down I think for her. It's in the moment. She's taking the pieces that are they're assembling it into an effective weapon for the moment. You know she doesn't know what law is coming to the house where she doesn't know that law is coming over. She reacts in the moment with all the skills that are at her disposal and she comes out with something very sharp. I think that that's where she is right now. That lake morally ethically. She's at the point where she's willing to apply willing and ready to apply some. Jimmy style tactics to something. Pretty big involving Sandpiper. That's an ingredient on the table. That's been on the table and I don't think it's necessarily something that she's been thinking about for a long time so much as they're talking this stuff through for her she's like. Oh yeah well we could do that. That's the thing we can do it. The thing is for me like I can't forget that she's still the Kim. Wexler who did the Lady Macbeth thing in season two that she still the Kim Wexler who when she wanted to even though afterwards in the diner after they were in Lubbock or wherever it was and they pulled the scam with the breast milk and the additional plans and switched those documents out that she still that person who came to Jimmy and said. Let's do this She still willingly participated in what she participated in with. You'll sometimes her ends are noble like it was with Hewlett. Sometimes it's just to make a bank picker but I think she's always been involved in this sort of action as just a thing that she likes to do. And as we've talked about and we see it in this episode just the mere idea of these sort of shenanigans is a turn on to them. We see them talking about the things they could do. Howard Hamlin and we have a jump cut to them being in bed continuing the conversation. We got through the best part but it happened and it happened right after that conversation with full bellies. Mind you with full bellies which everyone knows. It's not ideal but they had and they jump right into bed smash smash ended. After they smashed. They continued their conversation. They had dessert later but still not ideal and get it. Was that conversation that led to it just like it always does for her. And this is a Kim who is talking about when she's tracking when you're talking about the end justifying the means and you're talking about her accelerating this and trying to create a pro bono practice with all this money and her saying oh well you know those seniors who maybe they'd lose two to three bucks whatever it is. They still get all their money sooner. They'd be able to actually enjoy it and spend it. She is talking against justify the means but she goes across the line a little bit and she trolley problem way says. I'm going to save all these other lives by costing the wine and she's clearly pumping gas on the trolley. That is headed at the one life when she says we're talking about a career setback for one lawyer when she's talking about Howard him and I can't help but be reminded of the Kim Wexler who several seasons ago when it happened to chuck in season three when they did it was so wracked with guilt. And get maybe seemingly is over that now that she's not reminded of that in any way so I just think this income Wexler is somebody. I've never killed a man but we're supposed to talk that. Well yes man what I what I understand upstate New York Sergei. Don't talk what I understand from fiction. Fiction likes to tell you this often right like whatever like sort of like murder show whether it's a thriller or it's like a game of thrones or whatever you always have some weary mercenary or some weary bad guy. Tell you like it gets easier. The more you kill Chuck mcgillis or I kill so has it gotten easier as a gotten more palatable. Walter White was pretty shaken by what he did to crazy eight. He without blinking. An Eye Since thirteen guys to believe that. Yes exactly in the Godfather one style. Yeah you're right. It's possible that that is that is the case with Kim. Wexler I just. I'm not sure and I thought again. I thought your talk with racy. Horn was great on this Friday. I'm not sure she knows moment to. I think are coping. Mechanisms have always been to throw herself headfirst into the task at hand whether it's staying super late and burning the candles at HMO to dig yourself out of a problem whether it's making all those calls posted notes all over the staircase in her spare time skipping lunches crushing those documents. For what was it Gatwick oil or whatever. It was getting in the car wreck on the way there. She has always gone super headfirst and pursued. These things are often at her own expense. And I don't think we're in any different territory in that regard here. She sees the goal. I think as as pro bono thing in wanting to help these people out and she's willing to do a lot to get there My question is like if those goalposts could be shifted like because she she seems to be shifting her morals in that regard vis-a-vis you saying I killed Chuck McGill and all of that pretty soon. Does it does it. Stop being in the way that breaking bad day with Walter White cooking for his family and then getting to a certain number that he made up in his head hitting that number and blowing past it and still not stopping is it. Is it going to be for her? Thing where okay. Yeah I get to focus on. Pro Bono Nava. Good pro bono practice going. That wasn't what it was actually about really enjoyed doing things. She was doing She'd liked it. She felt alive. If that's the story we're telling with Kim Wexler. I think it's important to look at where the where the goalposts have moved previously because I think they can instruct where they move in the future and so. I'm just not sure that I know how in her head this sandpiper thing was. She was able to pull it out very quickly and able to do the calculus on it so quickly there. I think at least whether even she realized it or not. It's been part of her decision making a along the tracks of this process. It is not something that just occurred to her out of them. She did look at an old person and say sandpiper. It's something that I think has been part of her mental calculus whether she's realized it or not and I think that's the fascinating part. She may not even realize what she's in the middle of it may take till the end of the series did with Walter for her to realize I liked it. I did it for me. That may be where we're headed with. Kim Not quiet out loud stuff. It's like the sandpiper thing was something that like in her head like she could do that. Math quickly enough to be like. Oh if we had that money this is something that I could do with my life but never really entertaining the thought. Because maybe she's at a point where she's either ethically and morally opposed to going down that line or she's not ready yet to admit to herself that like no. I would actually probably be all right with that. In fact indeed Lo and behold I enjoyed it. It's fascinating because it season to talk about season two episode nine but I know earlier in season two like episodes like Bali Hai and some of those first three or four episodes of season. Two when Jimmy Kim I get together and then our part. Kim is very upset because of what happened with Mesa Verde and because of happened with the cattlemen's it because of everything that happened H H. She's in the Doghouse. And she's very upset with Jimmy and she's not taking Jimmy's calls. They're not living together. Jimmy's working Davis and main living in the company housing. Jimmy's calling her answering machine leaving her messages. One of the things she says to him I something to the effect of. Let's see if you can just go like one day without breaking the rules of the Bar Association of New Mexico. Let's just see if you can do one thing. And that's when she gives that speech like you don't save me. I save me. Her problem with Jimmy at that point is how unethical he is. And I think what we're seeing out of Kim Wexler at best now is situational ethics at best. It's the trolley problem. Y'All ruin Howard Hamlin but I'll save dozens and dozens and countless other lives so it's fine. Her ethics are situational at best. Now and I think I think she's pivoting to situational ethics just as her only shield. I think re- in reality. I think she's using a sword to cut through a lot of the bullshit that she had built up around herself and she has emerged from her Christmas there in the darkness of HIV. And she certainly a different person than she used to be. I think we saw those notes before and those notes that we thought were back..

"It is has been seen throughout the Better Call Saul Universe as a nod to Kim Wexler and has a nod to his relationship with Kim. That was a reference to of her father's favorite movies a reference that is mentioned in better call Saul and it is something that when she and Jimmy run a scam on one of the marks that they meet the hotel. Maybe the Tequila bottle mark himself. They have the him make out the check to ice station zebra associated so the question is is there a through line not just in name only or not just in some kind of loving connection to Kim? But she's the one who brings up to low at the end of the scene. Have you never heard of shell companies? And you've never heard of the Cayman Islands. Considering the fact that she mentioned shell companies. We have the shell company that is named in reference to her and as a thing that she is that she is connected to and considering how she calls. Lolo fully out on the carpet there. I don't think by the way that anything she said. Other than the fact that's all good man doesn't lie. I don't think anything she said was untoward or undeserving. A Philip loud. There's a possibility Lila walks away from that conversation. Saying you know Goodman's fine. He's good at what he does but she's she wears the pants in this relationship. Yeah I just had never really considered that as a possibility. That could be what he's walking away from it with. I I get the sense that a lot of people literally la literally dodged a bullet. Maybe Jimmy Kim did as well by Kim doing what she does and getting out of the room I think Lilo leaves and Jimmy and Kim are not really thought to him anymore. I'm sure that he will reverberate in their brains for a good deal longer. Yes and I am. I am you know. I would not be surprised if they've remained factors in his thought making his decision making but I I don't think that they are the most pressing thing like when he says to Nacho going back to Mexico. But they're not going back to two where they just were going somewhere else that. I think he's got something else in mind. He knows that. Like something fishy is going nine. And he wants to regroup whether or not. That's because he specifically wants to like dig into Jimmy and Kim more. That just doesn't feel right to me as far as his next step. It doesn't to me either. It just what made that enter into my head? A little bit was wondering like how in response to what he just experienced in that room. How does he know to change his plan? And what does he change it to? And of course part of my thinking in that regard is does he change it to something? That is terrible for the people that we care about for Jimmy and Kim like does. His pivot here means that those two are going to be even more endangered than they. Just were like. He walks out of that room and saying she's trouble like she has her head on straight and he's traveled because he's weak but he's good enough to lie to me and he's dogged enough to drag seven million across the desert and by the way there were bullet holes and I know neither see nor hear what pulled him out of that desert with those bullet holes so he's working with someone else and if he's working with someone else and I can't trust him either like I have to watch my back and they're part of what I have to watch and that so that's the biggest concern but my secondary concern or my secondary wonder is like maybe he walks out of their thinking. Man She just read me straight to fill like she knows like all the worst things about me and she called me outright on the carpet and she had the guts to do it. That's the kind of person I need on my side. These are my lawyers. This is my legal team. Beathy reaction that people get from. That's like tends to be the reaction to Kim. Yes like when Kim Wexler Spradlin? Yeah but like when Kim Kim dresses people down like often like either like you know. They're shaking in their boots afterwards. They're like impressed and they want more of that right so you can. You can see that beam take a lot to get lallo shaking in his boots great boots so they may be but I think for him to be impressed by her Yeah I could see him walking away from that interaction like I like her. Yeah already sort of was right. Even though I think he had the upper hand against her win she came to the jail to try to get the information from him and they have that great shot of course of him standing behind her slightly out of focus while he stretching out looking like a serial killer. I mean literally like some Hannibal Lecter. Shit like looming over her shoulder and the look on racy. Horns face just petrified She really played that well like okay. She was ready to come in here and she bucked up and got her self prepared to have this conversation with this killer but she was scared by the end of it but this time she says let's face it. Everybody knows you killed that guy like she is not intimidated in that moment at all. Jimmy is stammering and he's about to give up the shop and she is ready to step up and shut it down and provides I think in the moment very quickly a very plausible explanation by the way Kim able to sweep that up almost instantaneously. Mike. Victor no-one on that end was able to sweep it up without an instant like they had time to clear that car away in the didn't like that's a major fumble isn't it. Yeah for sure for sure unless it's like how did they get back there? Did they not know exactly where that was anymore? Like the reason why Mike was able to track that before was because he was literally tracking Jimmy. They don't have that anymore. They don't have the ability to go back to that exact spot you know. It was on the road so because it was on the road. I feel like that's how lawler was able to track but the risk of like having somebody who going around there bullet he did have the flat flat flat.

Hbo In fact maybe even say it's perfect or anything because I'm not a hundred percent barred with the full resolution but I get it and it fits the whole show so I wasn't based on the really satisfied by feel like the characters in the story was satisfied. So that's what matters. I really enjoyed it a lot of. I think it was like I said to you if you like true.

She's one of the best TV characters. I think I like her. So yeah that also less on. Amc is at the moment is one that we're like we had on the walking dead. Sometimes you're you say weird why because I did. I say last night before starting all I'll explain my thing we can't say anything about it though. It's not fair no. I enjoy walking dead. We too weak and we watch Paul of walking dead faith walking. I'm walking and you read the comic and I don't right and I can say about the show is i. Sometimes I enjoy it and sometimes it's really dull and then I'll enjoy it again and then it's a bit Dole. It's inconsistent right. Yeah it's very bad storytelling. It's like it's it can change week-to-week 'em it's still not good storytelling. But there are things that they do that I'm like okay. Okay anyway I'm still I'm Zombie file. loves anything Zombie Related. So I'm on board anyway. I just feel like it's run. Its course and it's like an it's been said about it before. It's like a soap opera with zombies like it's all about the people and their relationships and the choices they're making and I couldn't give a shit. I only want to care about the World Post Zombie Apocalypse. I want to know about the cities and the cures and the people who are immune to it and the different kinds of zombies. There have to be more than one and this show doesn't do any of that but we got to see this week's episode slightly early and I think you really enjoyed last night's episode lost this week. You know they'll say anything. I'm not saying anything but it was. Sometimes you say things that are very good to is all right. Yeah so yeah. The show is very inconsistent. Sometimes I prefer fit the walking dead. But then they've kind of the same now to me so they've leveled off in terms of actual storytelling. They're not digging deeper. There is moving around telling the same story. This time. We're up again. One big thing Rogin GonNa have to come together in resolve this thing l. Look we resolve this thing and we turned around. And there's another thing there's always a thing though that's the thing that's the thing and then last on the TV tomorrow night is season. Three of Westworld. Good yet we haven't seen it. I just westworld in the movies. Even I'm into Westworld you are but that doesn't mean it's going to be good season three of season one and two great. You know what I'm GONNA do Before we watched season three tomorrow night. I'm going to hold up a youtube video for both to watch with the recap all I saw one. That was like recapping all of Westworld in five minutes like both seasons so you can just blitzed that through and then go okay. 'cause it's been a while. Isn't it since it was on during you know my brain? Yeah ain't GonNa hold even though that was called West what you like Westworld. Is that the one.

"We said about we were talking about Logan before to me. This seems like a pretty exciting template for that kind of story for someone who's been through something who is changed scarred irrevocably from it reckoning with one last thing. Yeah. Absolutely. And that's that's exciting Vince going it has earned the right to tell us the story and we're excited to see it. I'm also excited to see who Jesse pink. Men's Kim Wexler is whoever that is. It doesn't have to be a woman isn't of the be it can be whoever it is. But they obviously still have characters in their back pocket. You know, or they they're able to come up with characters who are as interesting as these people who know in love from breaking bad, right? I mean, if you look at existing characters as having square pegs because they are so well defined. They don't bring in people who are round holes. You know, what I mean, they have visibility light master craftsmen to create characters that full perfectly for dramatic purposes into the pre existing character. And that's what can Wexler is. That's all supporting new supporting characters better all are. So it's exciting purely from writing standpoint, honestly, before we even get to what it's gonna look like or how it will be directed cetera et cetera. I wanna pivot from this before we get into homecoming to this kind of cool moment. For a AMC where they are as we said just two days ago throwing out the rule book and saying we're just going to make stuff with the toys that we have right? They're gonna make movies now because the rules don't matter the shape of the the widget doesn't matter anymore, and it's not a bad idea. And it turns, you know, the whole idea before is that you do as community said six seasons in that movie with that was always suspect strategy because TV shows are not movies and going to cinematic release of a movie just changes, the stakes changes the definition of the property in it often fails now, we're just making more TV episodes, but in a different shape. And I think that's really interesting and honestly aim seems more forward thinking in this than other companies that we often point to as forward thinking, particularly I'm thinking about how David Chase's currently making sopranos movie that is a prequel. I forget what it's the goes to jersey or something that's called. Maybe we can look it up. Incorrect my mistake there. But You you know, know. it's written. It's being cast. He I assume he's going to direct it as well in. It'll tell the story of junior and Tony's dad it is a theatrical release. Don't you think on some level? It would make more sense as a two hour HBO special with that what they're doing with the deadwood movie, which they just began filming. Apparently, exactly. And so it also makes me wonder have the overtures already been made to Matthew honor. For example, who I say, I, you know, we all know how many episodes of the Roman offset scene. But it does not strike me as something that would be really super excited to revisit just judging by the reaction to the show. Don, Draper in the eighties is is like is imminent. Well, I mean, that's a show that did do flashbacks. They weren't that great to his childhood. I don't know if it's the Don Draper in the eighty show. I he strikes me as someone who may winder also writes novels. You know, he's wants to make movies. I think that his sense of the art that he does is different convince Gilligan who has always approached it much more. Like, honestly, I even say this. I think this is a fair observation of two men that I don't know one has kind of a blue collar approach has white collar approach to making television. And sure marvelously, but Vince Gilligan has never seen very precious about it. Like, he doesn't mind going back into the minds and having fun seeing..

"So it's got to be kind of exciting for him. And look, what do we know? We know Naomi watts was just cast as cast as social eight with a dark secret and young handsome, British dude from pulled dart also cast your so you're. Jack was not shutdown the I'm very curious your thoughts on this. But from a complete outsider perspective, not just outside are like we don't actually know what the decision making. It's been behind the scenes on this. But outsider in that. I don't really know what the long night super is. I just have a feeling that they, you know, they cautiously Greenland five pilot scripts the zeroed in on this one is one of the most potential. I think it's very important. Not knowing anything about the script. I think it's very positive important. That woman is at the helm of this franchise is opposed to recycling. The same type of person that did the last story because I think the other game of thrones got some criticism some of deserved for its treatment of women on screen, and I think it's time for different perspective on it. And then this casting is terrific. And so, you know, fingers crossed obviously, we said the same thing about James Mangold, directing Boba fett movie. But so far, it seems like they're doing things, right? Yeah. So the long night is in referee. To the age of heroes, which is basically this this period of time thousands of years before the story of game of thrones. At the television audience knows it, and it essentially covers the sort of rise of the white walkers. I think the white walkers this is from winter's coming net. But the white walkers came for the living writing their pale spiders as big as hounds bringing with them a darkness that lasted for generation. And this was known as the long night, and one thing that I think is pretty interesting is that. That does set it up. Similarly, I think too you've got an age of political intrigue and infighting between humans that are then confronted with this almost supernatural evil at their doorstep. And that is where game of thrones is winding up. So it is it is kind of fascinating to see them. Maybe run back. Some familiar beats if not the actual story. But I think they it's so it's so early it's really hard to like have any make any real assumptions about these things. The fact that Naomi watts cast as a as a quote unquote, socialite suggests that you will still have some of the same chamber whispers that we have in game of thrones. Which I think is something that you, and I are both really into. She has the right coloring to Lancaster. I assume Lancaster's existed in some form there. That's kind of exciting to to imagine. It's sort of hard to imagine any other ending for the series that doesn't exist yet other than what the creation of the wall. And would you know what we now know is a three hundred thousand year. I don't know how much time has passed. But basically a pause. Button until the problem came back again. Right. Yep. So does that rub? This of some of its potentially dramatic stakes. Maybe it does maybe doesn't we don't actually know what the battle over the characters are going to be. But it also offers an opportunity potentially to go deeper in different directions than game of thrones much like better call Saul has used the goodwill of breaking bad to give us really fascinating character. Studies in storytelling. I mean, we've said this we were talking about better call Saul. But the devotion in care, which that better call saw gave to the Chuck Jimmy relationship to the character of Kim Wexler..

"Sometimes there's episodes or I'm like, not as good, but overall, I'm a fan. Sweet definitely, definitely be watching so many, so many voice actors to everybody's in that. So, yeah, big meth, two thumbs up from me. Nice. What about you guys? What have you watched? Well, I think we can both probably about the same thing but plowed through. Soul are you? Are you caught up? Yeah, I'll cut up. Wow. Yeah, really so good now. Yeah, God, what can you? What can you say? Other than just. Like the writing is out of this world. Again, this season and he's characters now that we didn't think. Dan because he's never seen breaking bit. And you've got this character was share character that I care about so much now. Yeah. And then they're these web of characters that flow out from him. Kim Wexler interest is she is dynamite. Amazing. Yeah, amazing and Razi horn, unreal, that's half. Yeah. And Mike Erma trout, my good God, Lord, what he goes through in season four arc in season four is. Is nothing short of devastating? Yeah, one of the greatest the television characters ever created, I think, yeah, he's talking fascinating. Can we can we say one thing that that bubble gum trick that he does. Good. The bubblegum again, tell you. Okay. And and I'm just because he has watched breaking bad bell. No, no, spoilers because it's cool seeing wicked because you're like, what's he doing doing? And that guy that he was doing it to quite like that actor lallo home men that what did you come in three episodes in and all of a sudden he's just like stealing enormous because it's so he doesn't thing that is so hard to pull off that friendly menace. Yeah. Oh, it's such a tricky thing. People do. So horror movies. Yeah, we're really engaging and friendly, but like I'm really, I'm might kill you right now. Yeah, but I'll kill. You is fucking awesome. Yeah. Where'd he come? I don't know, but it just continues because breaking bad was so good at to like every performance. Every character that showed up was fucking dynamite search. So so well thought out so well written and directed that. Like if you're halfway amazing actor which is all they got where. Amazing actors so that Joe, it shine so much when so distinct and better all the same thing like all in. We're getting these characters that we already liked the lot, but seen so much more of them and not like a, you know, dumb origin story way, like it's totally different. I don't know how they're pulling up and this again, I'm like, I'm watching this going like, is this breaking better? You fucking is it definitely, definitely season three. I had that feeling before four. I didn't have that feeling quite as much. I didn't quite have the same tension builds than that, that breaking bad was really great at. But then there are couple Pinal episode though, just like what motion roller coaster. There are so many things that are just and it looks gorgeous. It's beautiful show. They don't fuck around with anything. I listened to the podcast and they really don't leave a stone unturned. They love what they do. Yeah. Remind me to show you afterwards the there's a picture of the board from the last episode. Oh, what it looks like the q. cardboard and it's like. It's so far out just how detailed these mother fuckers are. They just nothing is left. Is it up by the people behind the scenes kind of thing? Yeah. So it's been scale again and to creators Gilgen and on. One thing. That's really cool. I think this is cool. Did you know that if you are the writer on a show, so your staff at ten and you happen to write a show, right an episode that introduces a character. You are an executive producer every show that character ever shows up on a gain really. So that's part of the reason why. I can't think this name Peter Gould is he's creative, better call Saul because he gets to do that. But anytime to introduce a character that comes back. Yeah, they get. They get your saying points on that or whatever that works very neat. Yeah. But what a show, what a treat really fortunate. I just don't know feel so fortunate watching it like what?.

"Point one FM. Four thirty five. Jeff cads, NewsRadio W R V A. It is a Monday afternoon. Some interesting new stuff coming along in the in the entertainment world. Some new movies and television shows that might be worth watching by the way last man standing as done phenomenally well in its first two episodes back. Our pal. Jason Nathanson, ABC news, of course, has has the great duty. God he gets to sit around and watch television movies. And then tell the rest of us what we should or should not watch. What a gig Jason. Thank you for being here. It is pretty fantastic to be me. Well, well, and I like the the modesty is. Well, yes, it is good to be you. So so bring with you don't know tell me tell me, what should I be on the lookout for my friend? Oh. I I was not prepared for that question. What's oh, come on? Now. Seriously. What's at the movie theater right now that I absolutely should see or shouldn't see while a star is born is very good. That's that was second place at the box office this weekend that stars lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in the remake of the store that we've seen this is. I think the fourth version now, okay? Of a star is born and lady Gaga is fantastic. As a kind of down and outs singer who's trying to make it and just can't seem to get a break in Bradley Cooper comes along. His character is a singer a kind of a rock star who is on the other end of his career where he's had all the fame and all the fortune. And and now he's just drinking too much and is hearing shot, and he kinda finds a musician lady Gaga character and Bradley Cooper directed this film in his. First of all to direct and act in it. You know is a very tough thing to do. But he just transformed himself and he's fantastic. He's gonna get an Oscar nomination for. Sure real. Yeah. I believe she probably will is well summer saying there's many as nine Oscar nominations coming for this film kazoo original music as well. Possibly directing for Bradley Cooper. It's pretty much got it. All now, the reviews have been over the top glow. Glowing. I don't agree with those. I liked it. I liked it a lot. I'm not gonna say that I loved it. There are some major problems. I had with it specifically towards the end, which you know, I don't want to get into without spoiling things, but it is an enjoyable time at the movies any any cameos by Barbra, Streisand or Kris Kristofferson or anything like that. No Barbra, Streisand is not in it. Unless that Dave Chapelle cameo was actually. I believe it was. Exit supporting roles in it. Or are a lot of fun is. Okay. But I think us Andrew dice. Clay plays lady got his dad, and he's fantastic. And Sam Elliott also stars as Bradley Cooper's brother. He's also really really good as well. And it's a very emotional film. Maybe a little too much. So it's it's a little manipulative. But I'll I'll tell you at the screening that I saw every I'm gonna say most it was mostly women. But most of the women came out of it with tears streaming down their faces. We're talking snot bubble type crying. Oh my gosh. Emotional at the end is that because Andrew dice clay does something touching now. Never mind. I I don't even know why I ask that forget it. Forget it. Sorry. I didn't even although I got news for Tyson actually his series on Showtime, which was widely two seasons. I thought I mean, he's playing dice, of course. But I think he's he's a little bit smarter and a little bit more gifted than most people give him credit for I think one hundred percent, but you know, he painted himself into a corner with his persona. Yeah. And it's it's hard to break out or something like that. But you know, when when he wants to turn it on. And he's he's he's charming and lovable. You know? He's not he's definitely not the dice that we know and love from the comedy world. All right now, tell me a little bit. So let's get back to the world of television here last two weeks in a row last man standing is back. It's at the top of the the network ratings for that night. Do you see that as something that is sustainable? Yeah. Definitely. I mean, there's not a whole lot of competition. Friday nights, are are not something that most networks are really heavily programming. Although ABC has some stuff with their they brought back TV eye, Friday, or TGIF and and comedy blocked. They're going up against so you know, last man standing doing. Well, I think I think it's you know, people like it. They want to support it the numbers dipped a little bit this week, but still doing well. All right. All right. Very good. And let me ask you also about some of the other stuff that we're we're getting ready to see the Walking Dead came back. I guess it was last night. And I gotta be honest with I had written it off. I think we talked about last season. I would just that was it. They were pardoned they were dead to me. But this is Rick's last season. Right. Right. Yeah. So is it worth getting back into it? Or no. I I've heard from people that if he if you skipped out on the last couple of seasons because a lot of people I think feel the same way that you did I never got into it. So it wasn't anything that I was really watching her. You know, it's one of those things I I know a lot of people are watching it. But I for me, it's just it's the same thing over and over again. But but people say this season if you're gonna come back this is the season to do it. 'cause if you wanna watch the the end of his character some other things going on as well. This is the time to come back if you're gonna all right? And then tonight is this the final the final episode of better call Saul for the season it is. Yeah. And that's been a very good a little slow burning. Maybe not my favorite of the seasons. But I have the past couple episodes. They've really kind of ramp things up. I know I see. And I really like where it's going. I think they throw us for a loop in in. How we you know, we're on this journey. How you comes saw Goodman how he goes from Jimmy McGill to saw Goodman, and we thought it was going to have to do at least they were there showing throughout the previous seasons in episodes. That is going to have something to do with his girlfriend, and then she was probably gonna leave. But they they throw a nice little wrench in there that she likes the scam. Again, I I love her even more. Now, Jason there's just something very very naughty about her and love her. But you know, what it means though? She's on Jimmy side. He's something bad. Something really bad is going to have to happen for him to turn to the dark side. That's true. What do you think that's going to be? It's gonna it's gonna involve her. So you know as much as you love her. I wouldn't get too attached. Don't know anything not that. I know really o. The way these things go. Yeah. Order for him to go full dark in order for him to break bad to really break bad. You know, something that something terrible's going to have to happen to somebody that he loves because we saw monopoly. Chalk brother, you know. But he didn't love Chuck Chuck was jerk. Exactly. That's the person that. He does love that's going to be the catalyst. Oh, no chasing. Is that tonight? I I don't think I don't think that's gonna happen. All right. I don't think it's gonna have to go around like this evening after the show have to go, and you know, start covering up mirrors and tearing my clothing 'cause poor Kim Wexler. I hope not I hope tonight's not the night. But you never going to happen. I would think with usually those things happen in the in the second to last episode of the season. Not in the last ones. I think you're good. Okay. Good. Now, finally, Taylor swift. Listen, I never asked Taylor swift for her political opinion. I didn't care if she had a political opinion. My question is for somebody who is a mega mega star is. She is do or do you not do Samatha go. You know, what whichever way I go. I'm gonna piss off half of my listeners better for me to shut up sing my songs sell. My my my music and move on with life her calculation for the past ten years or however long she's been a big star, which it's been about that long. And she's been the one who hasn't while? The others have lady Gaga, Katy Perry all the rest of have you know, that giving you their opinions politically, and I think their sales have suffered because of it not that we really had were out of question where lady. A guy or a Katy Perry might stand. Right. But they've all done that Taylor swift has been the lone holdout, and now she's giving her her opinion on politics. And you know, it's been rough out there. If you're watching the tweets, you know, people are really taking our task a lot of people are supporting her as well, but she just ended her tour. So she doesn't have to sell tickets anymore. Another record coming out. It might be a year might be two years who knows? So she has some time there. I don't know if the fans will leave her, but that'll be the real test to see if they remember when that new record comes out whether or not that actually hurts her. But as you know, a lot of people will say a lot of people, you know, whether you're famous or not now is the time that's very divisive, and and people feel very strongly about politics, and they feel they have an obligation to speak up. Whether it depends if it doesn't matter what side they just now is the time where they feel the need to speak up. And apparently, she felt that meets. All right. Well, I've still got Kim Wexler at least for sixty more minutes. All right. Jason I appreciate it by friend. That's Jason Nathanson. ABC news love checking in with Jason seriously, just to take a little a little turn from all of the the political stuff and all the other Michigan's for a couple of moments of them. Some good stuff tonight is the the season finale for better call Saul. I cannot believe it's been ten episodes already. You know, what else I discovered over the weekend? And I realized I didn't well. It's new to me other people have been watching it for the last couple of years. The good place not a bad show. Not a bad show at all. Really? It's it's one of those that I thought I know my brother had been watching and he said, oh, you should. You should take a look at this. I don't know. I'm pretty well filled up on my television roster, and I did and I liked that Kristen bell. All right. I can I can watch. And I yesterday just sort of took a deep dive into season one not a bad show at all. Hey, coming up half hour from now, I want to give you a chance to win a pair of tickets for politics and pints. Remember that happens on Thursday, October the eighteen Thursday October the eighteenth. You'll be able to join me and John Reid down to capitol ale house downtown we're going to get together. We'll have a beverage. We'll have a national talk a little bit about the political stuff, by the way. If you wanna talk about non-political stuff, God that would be so much more fun, wouldn't it? Yes. Yes. Would we could? We could talk about the final episode of better call Saul or. A good place. Don't don't tell me. How it ends don't. All right. It is four Forty-six Jeff Katz.

"It's never gonna win any awards for anything. And in fact, a lot of people watch and be like, this is pretty miserable, but it was utterly entertaining, entertaining for me. So. And I want to do a special shoutout. I know you don't watch the show better call Saul. You're not a better call Saul personnel here because I wasn't a breaking bad person. Okay. Yes, it'd be no reason for you to watch this net shared universe, but Bob Odenkirk has done such a job and he gets a lot of the lion share of phrase in the show. Obviously, I love Jonathan banks DC native him, but I really, really wanna give shout for Ray seahorn. Oh, she plays Kim Wexler who is Bob Odenkirk love interest in Terni, and she does more without opening her mouth saline. She I like to call it like moving without the ball, talk about it in basketball. You gotta move around. She is so great. I, I have come to love her so much on this show that now my quest is for her to do lots of big things because I just think she is phenomenon. I think she's got some. See ties, and she also spent some time up here. So let's find her. Yeah, listen, how do you spell Ray? And I hope I'm pronouncing that correctly r. h. e. a. it's the Ray or re race. Yeah, got it. But while her she is just sublime, I'm intrigue you'd. I will watch now just for that speaking of television, I do wanna give a shout out. There's a, this was a great summer for documentaries this past summer, but one of my favorites was called dark money and we had talked about that. It's about politics and Monteiro. Yes, his effective camping countries. Right. And that is currently, you can see that on PBS on POV right now. So I really cannot recommend it strongly dark money. It's called yes, it's called dark money, and it moves like a thriller. You're just kind of in it and and it's not a partisan. I just wanna make sure everybody knows. This is not a partisan issue. You know, it's really not. It's it's as if anything is Republicans who are. Being victimized by it in in Montana in this particular iteration of the story, absolutely nutrition. And so it's just but it so well made in well-crafted and you learn so much, and it's just it's just a great movie. So it's on p. o. v. check it out on your Lukla PBS stations that by the way, I'm not a guy that's going to get my political. You know. High horse soapbox Sopa. But, but if we got rid of if we limited country fictions it would that term limits. We could do those two things. I think we'd be, don't you look like, well, it would be worth a try. I think it'd be worth a try. Try what do I know? I'm just the dumb guy who loves stores born, you know, that's me. For president. You know what? If Gaga it Bradley Cooper running. I'd be down with that. That'd be okay with that. And that leads us right now Mishor today too. Chew on track song. I'm just gonna play it. Okay. Oh, good. No, I didn't. Lot of folks might not recognize this, then they will gonna know it. That's Bradley tour? Yes, film. The song's called shallow. This is the song we were talking about before I, I'm all right. Every hair on my body. It's unbelievable. It's this is the scene where he just said, we're second, we're gonna play the song I want you come up and sing it, and he goes out and he does this. This is written and performed by lady Gaga this rigid song. It's already charting. It's going to be a big hit. I think it's going to win an Oscar for digital song. I think it's gonna win a Grammy. And I think honestly, breath Cooper's got a shot to really get a leg up on the got after this year, you know. And this just gives you an example of how beautiful the music was in this, and we didn't even get. Well, I know 'cause we can only play. All right. Okay. Well, then you're just going to have to see the movie for this big go to tunes. The album is actually these album of the soundtrack is out to is out on Friday..

"I think I consider it to be the best episode of the series. Maybe one of the best episodes of television ever as Amanda about all the things that a great king built reduced to sand. That's what the show is about. It's about the tragedy of obsession and work in the early going better call Saul. We joked about how Walter white cooking meth was more interesting fundamentally than Kim Wexler doing doc review. But all of these people are obsessed and consumed by the minutia of their work. That's where they choose to vote their energy in their time in. That's where they actually find solace when the rest of their lives are breaking down. And so to see every inch of effort put into these enterprises that are like most professional enterprises dust at the end and what did they really get out of it that we know Mike is spending all of his days in nights, babysitting, Randy, miserable, claustrophobic Germans to build something that is going to be destroyed. All of this to make money that is going to be lost is incredibly human, tragic and intense. And when you think about it that way, I only wish that the show had the real. Estate or the interest in giving a character like Mike, for example, who is the co lead of the show those moments of those rungs on the ladder because Mike had that incredible episode early on that I broke my boy episode. We really understood who he was, but since then he's Mike and it's super fun to watch. Mike, just regulate and now speak German apparently, and be able to literally accomplish anything in an impressive way without ever walking more than ever increasing is RPM's. He meanders around this world, but he's, it's not just that we know he's, he's gonna survive, better call Saul is that he's already who he is. And I kind of wish we could see him slipping down the rungs a little bit more as he becomes more and more embroiled in Gus rings empire and his devotion to these things. They sense. That makes sense because a lot, certainly all that attention is going to to Jimmy and you know, maybe this is the way I'm watching the show, but it seems like that dies been cast now. Yeah. So the ten. One of the show of surrounds, Kim, and luckily they have, I think someone giving the best performance on television in the role of Kim racy horn. Where do we land on her name? Is it rearrange? I think it's raid based on a her responding to people in Twitter, asking, how do you pronounce your name while it's that's the source you're going with that you don't think that's fake news. Alexa. Fogel are pronunciation ombudsmen I believe says it's raise well, yeah, I, I still don't know if I can quite articulate what's what's really amazing about this performance her and Michael Mando or the two people that I think are really popping and not surprisingly, there's the two new people show whose fates are unknown and I, it's it's the amount of internalization that she has to do because she's not with the exception of that like explosion of against Howard earlier in the season. She's doing so much basically silent face acting mercy's in a meeting with Mesa Verde, but her mind is wandering towards setting up this elaborate con to get h- you'll often, you know, and I, there's something about how she is processing. Maybe it's because Jimi was already a conman and knew that this is basically his baseline personality, and it's really when he's not being a con man. That's. Con she is alternately like a very good person and a very diligent worker and a good lawyer, and she is actually fighting away a demon. You know, she is actually got this thing that's like telling her like you feel alive when you're out working without a safety net on a on a wire. And that's watching someone process that which is a very relatable human thing to be putting yourself. Basically, danger has been remarkable. She, I mean, she is the Walter white of the show more than Jimmy McCulloch, much more concise way of saying, absolutely, in the sense that would she is on so far is kind of a elevator of morality as opposed to down escalating and that alone makes it more nuanced..

"Well, it's called last chance youth because they basically take a bunch of other d one players that were like highly recruited, failed out, failed out or drugs, or even some criminal charges in some cases, assault and then pending charges. The charges are dropped, bring them all in and try to, you know. On a little bit, but I think it's in season two. Only a couple episodes in the coach saw season one. The cameras like like hard knocks, kind of a deal. He saw season one and realize, oh my gosh, I'm Cussing way too much, and he's trying to turn it down the season. So I don't know if it's the greatest show ever, but as a former football guy and as season just started again, I eat that stuff. Are you watching Saul art? Oh yeah. Can we just say Jonathan banks, Mike travel? I now want to spend off just him every scene. I'm like, God, I love this guy. And then that commercial they run every week to, oh, I love and the best part about that commercial is after the whatever the DC politician does his pitch. Jonathan banks goes Cole. It's my tell you. But if you said I just I notice the better call. Saul keeps planting plots seeds every week this. Yeah, this was a bittersweet episode. Yeah. With Kim Wexler. Yeah. And you start to end by the way we are seeing soul become soul now, right? We're seeing Jimmy really become so any. He's he's rejecting all the paths that would have brought him into the light and he's really embracing being a criminal, you know, bringing Ben? Yeah, he really is breaking you start to see it. Yeah, anyways, I finished Ozark. Yeah, and I didn't like it as much as season one, but the, you know, they've set up a season three and and you know it held me, it kept me. So how do you think of that in breaking Ben? Similar light? Yeah, style the last week, Jen Chaney was here, and she said, the problem with Ozark is at wants to be breaking bad, but you know, I like it and I'll watch season three. That's all the matters. Right. I, you know, this is a movie I came. I mentioned this a few weeks back if I have forget it. I'm getting old and just forgive me, but movie. I saw recently that I had not seen it first came out with chef that I've mentioned that. Oh, yeah. Miss that on its first run, and now it's making the rounds on cable was so good. What a wonderful movie, everything you want in a movie. It's just everything. It's just fantastic and Robert Downey junior sort of reef cameo in that is so odd and off putting and it's just brilliant. That's the iron man payback. It is. It is. Yeah, and I don't know. I love John favor when just about everything he's done. In that to John is rate everybody that's in. It is great in their own Oliver Platt is, yeah, that's a lot of fun. So if you haven't seen it and you're like, came out a few years ago. I don't wanna watch it. Go and watch it. I think I think it really enjoyed very cool movie. Yeah. And especially a great example of the small independent, you know, little just for fun moving and it really goes and apparently Fabra the movie was like, I don't know what this would of term would be, but that was it was a reflection of of the film industries like I'm gonna leave being a big chef. I do it in truck. And I'm going to not do the big blockbuster. I want to do the small indie film and really get back to the roots of what is about what I love. So Fabra directed several iron man's and now wants to get back to the food truck equivalent of making little movies, which was Schiff. Yes. What do you think of Bradley Cooper saying that he wants to direct that's interest act anymore? We were talking about this last night. It's almost he's trying to be the Kevin Costner the Mel Gibson how they directed themselves and won the Oscar. I. I mean, I support it. I mean, I've enjoyed watching him grow. I mean, when I first in wedding crashers thought he was hilarious. And then of course, the hangover movies and Larry, right? Silver linings in American hustle where David dome, oh, he has a little more and then American sniper. He act..

"And when you do me more, thanks man, quick quick like secondary nominations or somebody you don't wanna let go go by without shouting out Betty gilpin, ferments in glow. So good. Also, Betty gilpin performance outside of low is really good. I highly recommend listening to any podcast interview that you can get your hands on with her. She is just an incredible like find as a public persona. Okay. 'cause I don't think people really heard of her before the show gilpin come on desktop. She's very direct. I really not not afraid to say what she thinks she is just like incredibly vivid imagery that you wouldn't even necessarily guess like from the show. But yeah, I mean, glow is a show that I think as you guys have discussed on the show before really took the leap at a lot of that has to do with her character getting to be like in the first season. She's pretty objectively like the wrong woman. Ruth does something really shitty to her in the sense of sleeping with her husband. And then this season she gets to like be a brat and be mean and not be like a super uncomplicated hero. Yeah, and that both fits with the themes of the show really well, but was a great performance for her. And I'm also television academy voters if you're listening. She was kind of the surprise nomination out of that cast. And I'm so happy for her any other performances you wanna show up for move on? I think we all love is it really reacing racy here. This has been a topic of much. Conversation I have. I've investigated her own Twitter account or she answers this question very, very, politely. Every time somebody asks racy horn, of course, plays Kim Wexler, better call sauce. That's my favorite show. That's my favorite character on the show you guys talked about this on the show. I think this week about episode three and her performance and episode three and how tightly wound she is and what she's searching for. And that show has been criticized for having the sort of dual track the being Mike story, Jimmy story, and sometimes they cross over. But for the most part, they don't when they force them to cross over, it feels unnatural. But Kim story is the story that I most invested in maybe because I know that she's not a part of the show that came before this, and so there's the most unexplored territory there. So she's also just a fascinating, brilliant, captivating actress who I think was basically a sitcom actress prior to that. She was on Whitney. Just one of my favorite characters. Lindsay is all Jorde about her character earlier this year for the site just huge fan of hers shoutout to the supporting players that supporting performance. Her earring. In her ponytail. And I read this point her arm, sling men, the like the different the makeup they're doing as BRUCE'S, fade on her face, like the one of the things that really jumped out at me about that scene in episode, four between her and Jimmy, and the bathroom was the fact that she's acting almost entirely with her is because everything else is kind of restricted by the sling and her her business sued and her ponytail, like all of this stuff. But like in her eyes, you can kinda just see her being like, oh shit. This guy's conman. Okay. Let's move onto the biggest surprise of the summer, and this can be taken in in a bunch of different ways. It could be pleasant surprise. It could be, I didn't know they made them like this anymore surprise or it could be. I didn't know that people would watch the show surprise. So I'll start with you Alison. My pick honestly fits basically every single one of those categories which would be the multimedia artists. Terence dance was given a late night show. I guess you would call it on HBO called random acts of Linus. I was honestly not very familiar with his work. Prior to this, I interviewed him and watched a lot of it for research and he shall we say, like not the usual person that you would pull out of the talent pool to get a half hour on HBO. He obviously has not worked in TV before, and he makes stuff that you know is weird and challenging and much more in the world of fine, art and even conventional filmmaking. He had a feature that was really big and Sundance in twenty twelve. I think it's called an over simplification of her beauty..

"So far, but I'm I'm very curious as I mentioned listeners might be to how you found your way back to it because even when we realized we had missed a few episodes, even when we realized we had missed an entire season, even when we got feedback from listeners from the Facebook group from superfan MS mail that we were missing out, we just didn't feel the urgency. Yeah, and I'm going to say why that is, but I think I might disappoint those people even more in doing so, and we should say right now the top that we will be disease spoiler zone. So we're going to be talking about things that happen across the first three seasons in the first few episodes of season for and I can answer that question really simply because it was a revelation for me and watching these season for episodes. Man. I didn't care for the character of Chuck. Okay. I really, I know that this is not something that I have an argument for. It's not something that I have like, here's why this character was holding the show back if anything, the tension between Chuck and Jimmy was the truly original work of this show. I mean. I think I have tons of of of high praise for it, and I have lots of detailed reasons why. I think it's a great show, but for me and this is just one of those things that I, you can't legislate this. We Andy and I can't talk you into or talk you out of liking something you like or like like something you don't like. I just never really connected with the odyssey of that character with his with his illness. And I found that I just I, I would rather honestly watch Kim Wexler doc review than deal anymore with the Jimmy Chuck thing. And I just, I never enjoyed it. You know what I mean? It's something about Michael McKean that I dislike. It's nothing about Bob Odin kirks performance with him, and it's nothing about the excellent writing that went into that character. I just never really connected on visceral level with the plot that plotline. And I think that was a huge, huge thing because if you don't want to watch a major part of a show, you're just not gonna watch it. So it's interesting this season for has had a little bit of a noticeable uptick in ratings, and I think that's obviously that better call Saul is reaping the same benefits that breaking bad did, which is this is a stencil ably an AMC show that is highly highly helped out by net flicks. Because those episodes are readily available to watch in the format which you've suggested is more suited towards this show, which is the binge-watch format. And I basically slammed through season three and got through it knew already what was going to happen just because had been spoke from me by the internet, but just I was able to get through it. And then as soon as I hit season for men, as soon as I watched smoke and breathe the first two episodes I was like now now it's the show that I wanted to be well worth noting that this season so far is really, really approaching breaking bad territory in terms of yes, material, not even. I don't not about the quality. One of the things that I have used repeatedly to kind of not all down a peg even when I was praising it was the frustration I felt with the prequel format, which is knowing where things are going, knowing that certain characters are not in jeopardy yet heard the heard of the drama in hurts our emotional invest. In the characters in their situations in their relative levels of of peril. There's a weight with that, and I think speaks again, have been skill again, Google just diabolical highs in genius the way they can the way they take potential negatives during the positive, the way they at least give the appearance of meticulous planning, which is to say that if you know where things are going and you're confident in that and your confidence that people will want to see that, then you have this enormous luxury of showing all step. It's not just the slide down or the or the the, it's like it's like a giant waterslide. Basically the breaking bad fine. The first three seasons, a better call Saul or watching them go up step..

"You know, like the GI Joe sequel, he did the best moment. Air vaccine of that sequel is a snake eyes fight scene, and I feel like that's the the sequence that Jon CHU was allowed to do, you know, be John CHU and in, you know, knife see me to the whole heist breakout scene where the using Carter strain stuff. It's like, you know, the the most stylistic in John q. gets in this film. I feel like actually get gives him a chance to do that for whole movie in so enjoyable. I, I'm, I'm very happy that romantic comedies. Are you know making a comeback? I in. Just so much fun. I love. Love like the food porn shots. It makes me want to go visit China and. Yeah, I if I had any complaint about this movie, I would say that I think the first half of the movie kind of wax a intactness te or so. It kind of is like very much just like, oh, everything's going great, but second-half definitely makes up for that. But I'm sure if you're interested in seeing crazy rich agents, you probably saw it over the weekend. And the other thing I've been watching is better call Saul, which is now on AMC. It's as great as ever is. I just wanted to to say how great what's your name? The place, Kim Wexler maybe Christie, you know, her name. Scaping me, reassess, reassess Jorn. Yes, she's a phenomenal. I think she's actually the best part of that show. Yeah. Yeah. She's just so great met show that show is just like the best thing that is on television right now. If you asked me and if you aren't watching it, if you gave up in the first season, you know, go back, watch better, call Saul catch up because you were truly made missing great television, Jacob. What have you been watching. I went to theater in top with black klansman over the weekend. And I came to an interesting place because as magic interests, last film I had edited if you spoil their field articles about this movie before I got to see it. And so I went into this movie with two articles in mind, one by Candice, Federick and one by trae man gum to our freelancers, both who had very different opinions about both. We're poaching the film as black Americans and both had very divergent opinions on who was four and how presented itself. And so I went in really prepared to be torn bomb in in both directions by end up loving it. He loves a a, a tough wardrobe movie that is kind of as unforgiving as this one is. And people talked about this before already. So I don't want to dwell on black klansman too much, but to say, I thought it was excellent. I saw ten thirty in the morning and the people around me what it's like shell shocked in crying..
