Tv time like if you got straight as you could do homework watching tv. Like i would do anything to earn. Tv time i was obsessed with storytelling and that at that time nick. At nite was not children's programming. It was old usually half hour programs. It was mod and Hazel and mary. Tyler moore show. I can't think of all of them. family circus was at the trump. Right the one where they're like. The girl has a doll named be and they have doors to an apartment. What was sam. I was obsessed with these shows.

But the fact that i would start laughing at something that i would start laughing at.

Getting to know you to the point. Where i'm laughing thinking abstractly about things you might say or react to now. I was fascinated by her.

"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.

"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..

"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?.

"When we started the show of inside, we're both really worried about doing the legal show Necas we're not lawyers plus there's so many great legal shows written by people who have law backgrounds and so many wonderful courtroom scenes. And the way we kinda placated ourselves was they will. It's not a law show. It's a crime show, but it's it is a law show to sometime. So one of the things that we try to do is to find the parts of the law that you're not seeing as much of. We, we've all seen a lot of wonderful courtroom summations, but the truth is as we did our big research trip to downtown LA and we, we all sat in court for I sat in court probably a pretty much a week and a lot of the writer's room. We all sat in for a couple of days. I think what you find is that you know most the time in court nothing's happening. It's a lot of the actual transactions happen out of the courtroom or out of sight or backstage, and we wanted to show that part. And so that helps us when we think about process. That's what we think about. And we also think about what does it mean to this? What does it mean to this character? Now the working theory is that something is very, very important to the character, then it can be very, very important to the audience if we dramatize it right. And I think that helps us because it keeps us from chasing stakes. You know this, one of the things that you hear from sometimes notes that people give is one of the. Stakes want steaks, and if you're constantly elevate you raising the stakes, you know you quickly get everything has to be life or death. You know, we have to. It has to be the hero's life or death. Oh, that's not enough. It's gotta be the hero, small family. No, that's not enough. It's going to be the country. It's going to be the world and you keep topping yourself in until it loses humanity loses our ability to really get under the skin of the character. So I'll tell you that's one of the things that gratifies me the most is that I hear more about Kim Wexler really than any of the characters in what she has at stake is not life or death. It's her career that she's worked so damn hard for in his so important to her. And I think it might prove the point because that's an example of operating with stakes that are just very important to the person, but you won't like shootdown that may become has to diffuse a nuclear bomb in season five like that could be a really great. I'm looking, I'm looking well. I'm looking well, you know, we do have a very, I haven't taught. I haven't. We haven't talked about it, but very Connecticut side of the show with a lot of action. And didn't you do wonder what will happen if some of the characters you don't live in that world get involved in that world? Oh, no, no, I. So we're going to head into the spoiler discussion soon. So if you're not wanting to hear that, you know turn this off of five minutes or so. Yeah, I'll I'll give you a clear warning. One of the things that's interesting about this season is you have a lot of characters in your Shoghi. You used some of them very sparingly, and I'm wondering, you know, when it comes to somebody like Howard who doesn't necessarily overlap with everybody all the time or Nacho who doesn't overlap with everybody all the time, how do you sort of decide we're going to work this person in this way? You know, that's what a great quite the truth is that. If we had our way, we'd have a lot more a lot more Howard ham and a lot more Nacho Varga. You know, it's really because we follow the story, the story of of Jimmy and Mike and Kim, you know, into some extent, it is the story of Howard Nacho and certainly Patrick Fabian and Michael Mando are just powerhouse actors and they they can do anything that we can dream up for them, but it's it's, you know, we wanna keep some focus to the show. I think that's one of the reasons why the show works. So it's it's, it's always a balancing act in television..

"And I, you know, I started shooting my nails a little bit. So when I turned it in and Vince was happy with it and ended up being the season ender for the first season, which was not the intention, which is another story altogether, that was a real thrill in a was was very affirming. And boy, I'll tell you as a screenwriter, nothing beats writing something on Tuesday and having them shoot it on Monday just to get to see Bryan Cranston dean Norris do a scene performance seeing that you've written. It's just it's a thrill. I, I heard once a Vince gave a talk or something. He was saying that early in the show, you know you, the only one has the idea of the show in your head and you kind of need to teach all the writers how to do it. And then gradually, that becomes the rubric. Everybody operates under Enna's. New writers come in that can be taught, you know, whatever. I'm wondering what I'm better call Saul, like what is the thing that, like if I was going to join your writer's room, I might think, okay, this is how they write the show that like is sort of the opposite of that. Like what's a, what's a rule of writing better call Saul that maybe you haven't even had to articulate. Oh, what a great question. I think the thing that would surprise you about the writer's room was how little time we spend thinking of cool stuff and how much time we spend trying to understand what the hell is going on with the characters and how to express it. That's the big hurdle. And right now, this is airing this podcast is area after season finale. Yeah. One of the things that we're talking about a lot is is what's going on in Kim Wexler head. How does she interpret who. What just happened at the end of at the end of episodes, four, ten. And we thought we knew when we, by the way, when we wrote the episode, we thought we knew, but then you always go back and then reexamine it. You know, it's funny, I it so much of it is trying to understand people and to relate it to your own experience and you'd be surprised at how much you know we, we were just talking about your fight with your wife, how much we ended up talking about things like that and think about things in our own lives and how we feel attached or how we think Jimmy feels attached in what his reaction is to her. It's a, it's a lot of that. It's a surprising amount of of just trying to understand the psychology not in some big, broad sense, although there's that too, but just a moment to moment. What is she thinking? Right this second. What is he thinking? Right this second. And then once you know that, then you start saying, so what does he do and or if he thinks. This is the way forward, what's his plan? What's going to happen? And those discussions are actually go a lot faster usually than the psychology problems. Usually if we don't, if we get stuck, it's usually because we don't understand the people fully. So that's that would be I know that sounds kind of airy fairy, but that is that is the fundamental of it. And the other thing is the most useful thing in the writers room for us often is to somebody coming up with some idea out of left field, especially if it's based on something that's already happened on the show. Yeah. In other words, it's fun to talk about. I'd love to see this happen. There are scenes that I pitch every season between specially Mike and Mike and Jimmy, there are these elaborate sequences. I'll say this happens and that happens in this happens in that, then we'll, we'll smile about that or people will smile and nod. You know, some respectfully or forbearance, and then we'll get back to the real, the real nitty gritty, which is how to get from point a point be and what is what is that the greatest thing is when somebody says, you know what?.

"Wondering how you determine that sort of that delicate balance of, yes, we need to fill in this blank spot in their back story versus this. The audience can probably just figure out on its own boy. That's a that's a great quote we, that's you're talking about one of the main things that we argue about. I don't argue about but Rangel about in the writer's room. How important is it that we hit this point or that point? And I think one of the fun things about the show is the way we fill in some of the questions that breaking bad raises, but. I don't think that's the focus of the show. I think the show is really about these. These characters, Jimmy McGill and Kim Wexler, and Mike Roman trout. And we try to make sure that everything that we put in the show has to do with their journeys in their progress and that we're not just throwing in breaking bad stuff for the fun of it. You know, you do though have to like, you can't just be like this is a parallel universe where breaking that never happened, you know, like, do you have you ever been? I don't wanna say frustrated, but if you ever found yourself at a place where you were like, you know, we wanted to do something, but the original series contradicts at something constantly constantly. There are so many characters that we'd like to bring in. You know, is it possible that saw meets or the Jimmy meets this person? Ted Benecke. Could could Jimmy meet Ted Benecke well, no, because on breaking bad, there was a scene between Jimmy and Ted, and it was very clear. They had never met before more low Jimmy actually saw and Ted. So it's a yet constantly were coming up with ideas that we get very excited about briefly. And then sometimes they get shot down that happened on breaking bad too. You know, we had just thinking back, I'm breaking bad. We had a scene between te'o and te'o in the cousins and the Gus fring. And then later on we decided we wanted to delve into the backstory between these characters. And so we said, is it possible? Is it possible that Teo Hector head shot max who is of course on breaking bad, of course, if people have much breaking bad. It'd be incomprehensible to them. He was ended was a character we had to look at because we were doing a scene that took place before the scene that we'd already shot we had to think about is, is this possible. So sometimes we end up assuming things about the show and then watching the scenes in the writer's room in finding out, wait, that's not true. Or in one case, there's a a bunch of dialogue that actually wrote for for breaking bad kidding. Thank God dropped. That established all sorts of things about salts background. Oh, well, you got lucky there. That's true. But the question is delete. Do we have to adhere to deleted scenes? Yeah. What do you think? I don't think so. I feel like if Frazier can get away with him saying his dad was dead on chairs, and then his dad's very much alive on Frazier, and he's just like, I just lied about it because I was mad at him. I think he can get away with anything. Oh, wow. Yeah. Well, that that's a hell of a show. So it's good, never Frazier, it's good enough for us. One of the things like, how do you, how do you keep the all straight because you don't have like game of thrones levels of mythology like you don't need to remember what happened five thousand years ago in this universe. But I mean, maybe you do. I don't know, maybe like the pre Columbian like whatever is important to the history of this show. But do you have like a? Do you have like a whiteboard to have like a like a guy who remembers everything like how? How do you keep straight now? The two shows that where the timeline has to sort of roughly match up. We have a lot of brilliant people with very flexible minds. Especially area Levin, who's our writer's assistant an aerial, can she has an encyclopedic knowledge of the show and she can also call up. She has all the scripts for both shows and so she can do these very fast searches looking for things..

"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..

"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..

"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..
