Better Call Saul - Season 3 Preview

I'm even more excited for Monday.

I understand the "No negative predictions" rule... but I'm making it official. I say Ernie is not related to Gus in any way. And, there's almost zero chance that he's a recipient of one of Gus's scholarships. If I remember correctly, that was specifically a chemistry scholarship in honor of his partner Max. So, Ernie would have to be studying chemistry on the side I guess, while working for HHM(?)

What are the odds of seeing Walt or Jesse this season? How many seasons would you like the show to last (how many will it)?

    I never really bought the Ernie related to Gus theory. That seems like fanfic wishful thinking to me.

    I wish the guys had done a "previously on" reminder of where everyone was left because I've totally forgotten!

    This show will probably go for 5 seasons tops. I may be wrong, but that seems about right. I'd prefer no Walt and no Jesse. It would throw things off too much and a bit too fan service-y. I mentioned it in another thread, but every time they include characters from Breaking Bad, it makes the world feel smaller. Like there are all these people just bumping into each other. Sure, it happens and its fun to see, but it starts to strain things a bit.

    Did you guys forget or not realize that the the first letter of every episode of season 2 was an anagram that spelled out FRINGSBACK? I think on the Hardwick after show of the season 2 finale Villigan and Gould admitted fans figured that out pretty quick. So there was no purpose to holding that back in season 3 promotion since it was out there immediately.

    I feel like we tolerate coincidence more in Better Call Saul than Breaking Bad specifically because the stakes are lower.

    Even in Mike's sniper scene, it wasn't HIS OWN death on the line... The tension in the scene was mostly due to the brilliant way they shot it than actual life-or-death conflict.

    Meanwhile in an episode like Tahajillee, A.Ron was grumpy because the various gambits worked out... But only because every single character might live or die based on a few knife-edge decisions.

    In retrospect, the "coincidence factor" weighed much more heavily on something like Better Call Saul's copy-shop scene, for example.

    It got so disappointed the other night. I was looking on my DVR and I saw a new episode of Better Call Saul sitting there waiting for me. I freaked out and thought I misremembered when the season started. So I got all ready to watch a new episode and it was just some "Greetings from the set of Better Call Saul" and a preview of the new season. Booooooo.

    I agree it would be too much if we saw Walter White. I really hope we see Jesse though. It would make sense too since he had dealings with Saul in the past (before Breaking Bad) and was the one who suggested him to Walt in the first place.

    If they stick with the story being basically pre-Breaking Bad (or maybe a little during), 5 seems about right. But, at this point, I'm fully in on trusting the Villigan and the Goul (sp?). I don't think they'll try to tell a story not worth telling, and they'll fully execute whatever story they do tell. If they think of an interesting plot for Gene in Nebraska, bring on BCS seasons 6 - whatever.

    I would like to see a series where the last season is set after breaking bad, and goes on to show the rest of Saul's life.
    I just want to be famous enough that a porn parody gets made about me.
  • Rewatching season 2, for the first time in HD, and I cannot stop staring at Mike's head... He looks like he's decomposing! Standard def sometimes helps :-/

    Oh, I will watch as many seasons as they want to put out, as long as it doesn't make me groan or start disliking either shows. I worry with it getting into Breaking Bad territory that they will start having to do a lot of tap dancing to make it stick with what we already know to be true. But Gould and Villigan have rarely given me reason to worry. I have faith. I'd also be really interested in a Gene storyline. I think if we keep seeing B&W flashes at the beginning of seasons it is safe to say that we will get a half or full season set in that world.

    @Melia004 It's what happens when you don't sleep for 45 years.

    I understand the "No negative predictions" rule... but I'm making it official. I say Ernie is not related to Gus in any way. And, there's almost zero chance that he's a recipient of one of Gus's scholarships. If I remember correctly, that was specifically a chemistry scholarship in honor of his partner Max. So, Ernie would have to be studying chemistry on the side I guess, while working for HHM(?)

    What are the odds of seeing Walt or Jesse this season? How many seasons would you like the show to last (how many will it)?

    I'm with you Joshua and @Dee. Ernie related to Gus is one of the dumbest fan theories that started as a joke, and somehow evolved into alt facts acceptance. There is absolutely no way there is a relationship of any kind.

    Agreed. I had never heard of it until the podcast. But was shaking my head in disbelief, saying "nope nope nope," while driving home from work.
