    Second Thoughts on Season Five

    Second Thoughts on Season Five

    This episode of Breaking Goodman: A Better Call Saul Podcast is our season five look back. We’ve had about a month to digest the events of the season and view it as a whole piece. Does it hold up as one of the best seasons or were those thoughts made in the heat of the moment? Who are the season five winners and losers? How did we do in our Stone Cold Locks™ for this year? These answers and less are answered in this post season episode. We’ll be back again soon with our awards show!

    S05E10: Mission Kimpossible

    This live episode of Breaking Goodman covers season five episode ten of Better Call Saul titled “Something Unforgivable.” We don’t quite get closure for the season, but we get one hell of a stage set for the final thirteen episodes. We’re seeing Kim slip, Jimmy try to find his footing, Nacho getting pulled in different directions, and Lalo being the life of the party. Who knows how long it will be until we get the final chapter of Better Call Saul. Well be back soon with our look back at season five as well as our season ending awards. So we aren’t done just yet. Thanks to those that joined us live and those listening now.  If you enjoy the podcast and can spare a couple bucks hit up our Patreon at Patreon.com/WooderCooler or just shoot a couple bucks to @MikeMarbach on Venmo.

Like talking with friends

They’ve got a great banter between all of them, and aren’t shy to be honest on their thoughts

ZieglersW ,

Stone Cold

Goes without saying, one if the all time great podcasts.

S05 locks:
1. Nacho. E06+. He’s alone in a car. He makes a decision. [Background: Gus made moves against the cartel. Lalo knows about Nacho and Gus. A crew of guys at Nacho’s father’s shop goes to take him in at some point. (/His dad resists or gets caught in a crossfire and dies.) So Dad is protected, or he’s already dead, and Nacho decides to leave for good or do what his dad said and turn himself in. +1 all categories if Don Juan Bolsa is in the episode or one of the two before it or if Lalo and Nacho are friends even after Lalo finds out about him and Gus

2. Saul signs up to defend the call center protestor. Kim told him to do it. Internally, she tells Mesa Verde and Schweikart and Cokely that it’s too much trouble; they should give in/compromise and try for a PR victory. They tell her she has to convince Saul to stop. She says she can’t. I get +1s if they argue it out in court or Kim says, “I barely know him.” in any context

3. Lalo is gardening or touches a plant.

4. Saul reconnects Kim with an estranged family member, e.g. her older sister.

5. Rebecca and Kim cross paths at an evening function, late morning brunch, and have a mostly neutral conversation until one or the other slips and takes a pretty contemptuous tone about the other person, or Howard, or Jimmy. Sound fades out and camera pulls back wide on a line of people at Saul’s office, Francesca talking to people and telling them to take a number (like they’re at the DMV/MVD. Saul ends the season in the middle of a cold night or summer night, e.g. on Kim’s balcony or in his Saul Goodman office, alone, or with just Huell/Francesca. Kim and Francesca exchanged a few words or Francesca asked how she was and Saul said , “She’s good.”

Fun discussion podcast

I enjoy these guys. They know enough about this show plus breaking bad for the recaps to add value to my watching of the show. But it doesn’t totally nerd out and go down rabbit holes that lead nowhere. The frequent simpson quotes add a level of enjoyment. If you’re looking for a podcast that breaks down minute details and nitpicks, this is not it. If you want to listen in to friends who are big fans discuss the show and speculate it’s a great way to kill time these days.
