  • I know I'm late on this, but I just listened to the podcast, and I wanted to add my two cents on the feedback about the camera in the super lab in breaking bad versus the cameras on the engineers.  I don't think this is an inaccuracy. Gus didn't ha…
  • Thanks for all the suggestions, guys!  I am going to try to do some tutoring on the side. At my university, every undergraduate has to take a writing course at some point, and most (especially the science majors) really struggle with it. I am a pre…
  • I recently read an interview with Vince Gilligan, where he talked about making a confident-looking show, and his confidence in writing, and he said:  "Sometimes confidence can lead you to accept the first decent idea instead of to really strive to …
  • Murderbear said: They might need to get in contact with Marvel for a Jesse cameo. The tech they used to make Robert Downey Jr and Michael Douglas look young in flashbacks is pretty incredible. 2018 Aaron Paul may have a hard time pulling off …
  • I was half-hoping to see Jesse at the Dog House, but I know that is wishful thinking. I know that A.ron says that Jesse would be too young during the timeline of Better of Call Saul, but I disagree. In Crawl Space, the Mexican doctor mentions that J…
  • On a different note, I was watching the Inside the Episode for 4.04, and The Gould mentions that Mike's rejection of the therapy group is his rejection of conventionality. I think this is a really interesting concept, especially when you go back and…
  • Natter Cast said: Thing is, if you were being Disappearered for your protection, would you even tell Walter White which state you were going to? Let alone which job in which city? I don't know, man. My best guess would be that Saul simply d…
  • In regards to the question about Saul (or more accurately, Gene) working at the Cinnabon out of all the possibilities for a place to go and a job to have:  In Breaking Bad, before the scene where Saul says the line about "best case scenerio I'll be…
  • Quick Question: What does the Villigan have against group therapy?? He loves having characters unload in group therapy lol
  • I think another thing worth considering when thinking about Jimmy's reaction to Chuck's death is that Jimmy has never had big displays of emotion, even when it came to his brother, and Kim has probably picked up on this. Jimmy has pretty much just e…
  • So I was watching the little Inside the Episode (or whatever they call them) video for episode 2, and Bob Odenkirk said that the two guys in the interview for Neff reminded Jimmy of his father, who was also a bit of a rube. I love that, and I think …
  • Just a heads up that the Better Call Saul Insider Podcast is up! Kelley Dixon is there, but more in a fan capacity, with Skip ostensibly running the podcast now. Bob Odenkirk is there too, with some interesting insights in how it was for him to play…
  • I think this article about the episode from the AV Club is spot on with the themes of female pain, good read: also, definitely check out Leslie Jamison if your interested in these kind of ideas and themes, great writer. https://tv.avclub.com/in-cl…
  • Watching this episode got me thinking about Bran. A.ron and Jim have said that Bran is weird with the people around him now because of his visions and the knowledge that got downloaded to him from the weirwood network, with A.ron going so far as to …
  • This is one of my favorites as well. Weirdly, I also just rewatched this recently. I noticed that the ending is a bit silly this time around, but overall I still really love it. I love Nicolas Cage in it but the real draw for me is Sam Rockwell. He …
  • The Leftovers was almost completely snubbed, except for Ann Dowd. I am not surprised, but I am sad for Carrie Coon, because she very much deserved recognition for her incomparable portrayal of Nora Durst.  But I was glad to see that Zach Galifianaki…
  • I watched the whole thing. It's quick to get through because there are only 10 half hour episodes. Overall, I really enjoyed it. I thought Marc Maron was good in it and I generally enjoyed all the actresses. My favorite part, and the best written pa…
  • The HBO description for the finale reads: "Nothing is answered. Everything is answered. And then it ends." Put that on my tombstone. 
  • Yes! The Gift was excellent, I can't wait to see what Joel Edgerton does next. I also really liked (except for the ending) The Family Fang which was directed by Bateman.
  • I started watching it out of morbid curiosity and then had to finish it out just to see how the writers would end it. I agree that the writing is just awful, especially the dialogue and character motivations. ****spoilers if you even care about th…
  • This really feels much more gender-bent John Wick to me, with a mix of Bond thrown in, not like Lucy which had a much different look and feel and wasn't as grounded in a set reality as this seems to be. The only similarity I see between the two is a…
  • I grew up with a bit of an unconvential mother. She allowed me to watch whatever I wanted, no matter the rating or level of violence or nudity. However, I was not allowed to watch Disney princess films, or anything that depicted women in a demeaning…
  • So, I've watched the pilot episode 3 times so far, but I haven't listened to the podcast yet. I did really enjoy it, and will definitely keep watching. Having said that, I do completely see what others are talking about and why they don't like it. I…
  • @cdrive Yeah! Away We Go was exactly what I was thinking of when I said people see attachment parenting as just weird rich hipster white parents. Or the scene in Baby Mama when she buys the "Cadillac of strollers". I personally don't really care …
  • @akritenbrink Well I was talking more about parenting styles like those outlined in To Train Up a Child which led to the deaths of 3 children versus a child using a knife under the guidance of a parent. And again, these parenting styles are not com…
  • @akritenbrink No, I totally get what your saying. My point was that not having a system in the general American culture, as it is conceived by other cultures can lead to dangerous parenting practices but mostly it doesn't. Not many parents use dang…
  • @darwinfeeshy I think its much more is a function of our consumerist and capitalist culture than it is our melting-pot nature, though I would venture to guess that also contributes. But this is not my area of study so I can't really say. I only too…
  • I am not a parent, but when I was doing my undergraduate degree in anthropology, with a focus on biological anthropology, I was required to take courses on child development and evolution, and the anthropology of childhood. I went into it thinking i…
  • So here's a little featurette about Legion. I was particularly intrigued by the quote from Noah Hawley that the show is not "meant to be an information delivery system but an experience delivery system". I definitely think that is an important thing…
  • Great film. I've watched it many times
