Yeah, when she said "why would you do such a thing?" both my wife and I practically shouted at the screen "Because it made him feel alive!".

In Breaking Bad he came across to me as a kind of sleazy character who was taking an easy route to easy money by representing criminals. This show has rewritten that impression completely.

Squat cobbler.  why so serious?
I'm wondering how much you could make off of a $10 per viewing squat cobbler site this week.

They actually made the film.  Per the podcast they said it will probably be a DVD extra.

Interesting.

And the answer was $42,000.

Another great episode.  I wonder if it's Mike that puts him in the wheelchair unable to speak.

I can't remember, did him & Mike have any interaction at all in Breaking Bad?

And yeah, great episode. Loved the flashback at the start in the pristine house. What a dick Chuck is, and was.

As a shock to nobody: Season 3 Achievement Unlocked

This show is second only to Fargo right now.  The only thing keeping it from being on the same level as Fargo is the slightly rough fit of shoving in characters from Breaking Bad.  It isn't a bad execution, and it is fun to see some of these characters again, but it isn't quite seamless and it takes me out of the current story as I try to reflect back on whether the characters met each other in the 'future', etc...

I want to say no, but it's been to long to say for sure.

I think by the time of Breaking Bad, the uncle was in the nursing home and never interacted at all. Hell, Tuco was only in the first season, IIRC.

More like a "goddamn, I have to wait how long for the resolution to this?" type of ending.

Yeah, very disappointing. Still, Chuck's a dick.

Theme of the Mike story seems to be almost a mirror of the Breaking Bad thread - how much violence do you, as a viewer, accept from the character before re-categorising them as a bad guy?

Yeah, pretty weak ending overall and not just the the end with Chuck and Jimmy. My biggest gripe is that they spent so much time with Mike in what was supposed to be a suspenseful situation, but all the suspense was lost because we know all but almost everyone at the house is alive in Breaking Bad.

I knew at the end of last weeks episode that he was going to come clean for some reason and Chuck was going to record it.  So, yeah, way predictable, too. 

Also, Chuck is a dick.

Returning August 6th... There is a huge spoiler in both articles I've seen announcing the return date.
