***Official "Space Blanket" for Better Call Saul***

I think next season is going to be much darker than the prior years. Jimmy was so giddy about suckering the board and being able to finally go by Saul Goodman.  I think he was genuinely oblivious to Kim's reaction.  He simply doesn't care what anyone thinks, even Kim.  It will bother him when she says something or he realizes, but it won't take long for him to move on.  The tragic part is going to watch how he dismantles his life up to this point next season.  I think it's going to be ugly.  It has to.  While the season has funny parts to it, the story is like a Greek tragedy.  We're up to the tragic part.  Should be fun to watch.  Painful, but fun.

I think the opposite. When we meet him in BB, he *loves* being Saul Goodman. He clearly loses Kim at some point, but I don't see much darkness unless we move forward to Gene. He hit rock bottom when he did the whole "they won't let you forget" part, and then crying in the car. He's on his way back up.

Most likely the case .... but do we know that Kim is no longer in the picture during Breaking Bad?

Did they ever show Saul's home life? Maybe he's good at keeping her out of his business and vice versa?

I don't remember him having any "lady friends" ... so maybe he's in a committed relationship there.

This could be a thing, except that he left quickly at the end, a little too quickly for someone in a long term relationship. So based on that, I would say they have to sever the relationship in BCS.

there were few 'in flagrante delicto' sitches - wrapping up a happy ending, etc - from Saul's office in BB. and his layzay fare attitude clearly didnt speak of someone important at home.

I can totally see Gilligan reverse engineering her into some plot thread of BB.

Could be how they bring Walt and Jesse on for a cameo.

Wild guess: Kim serves as a public defender for a petty crime that Jesse committed pre-cooking.

Has there been any word on whether the show has been renewed for a season 5 and if so, will that be the last season?

Season 5 is already done contractually. No word on if final season or not.

This show would really take off if we had pre-Breaking Bad Jessie for a season or two of petty crimes, family issues, and such.

"Yeah, science b#####!" He was so good yo.

It will be interesting to see how it unfolds.  I disagree though.  In Breaking Bad, Saul loves who he is.  Clearly.  But just because Jimmy has taken his first real step in becoming Saul, I don't think he's fully there yet.  He is still somewhat of a tortured soul.  He had his chance to leave Kim, and was almost out the door...but he changed his mind.  It's going to take a lot for him to really become Saul the criminal, criminal attorney.  And one thing we learned from BCS is that nothing happens quickly.  No, I think next season is all about how he really becomes Saul, and the devastation it leaves behind.  Including Kim.  He's on the path now, but getting to the end is going to be ugly, at least IMO.

Odenkirk turned fifty-six today. If the show keeps the space between seasons at the current pace, he should be pushing sixty by the time the Breaking Bad timeline overlaps.

On a podcast I listened to they talked about the timeline and how its catching up to BB.  However since everyone loves working on the show they are totally open ended with the Gene character and post BB plot.  They could go in so many directions there with unlimited time if they so wanted.  I think thats why they would casually drop a gene scene in there every blue moon just to have that option

I want a show featuring Badger.  He's middle-aged, married, in a thankless job living in a cul-de-sac where none of the neighbors get him.  That's when Skinny Pete, cleaned up, sober, annoyingly reformed and righteous about it moves in two doors down.  They reminisce for a bit but their connection was all about the drugs and you can see the hunger for drugs and excitement gnaw at each, just a bit, around the edges, but steadily growing as the mundane nature of suburban life and responsibilities eats at them.

One day Skinny Pete realizes his house has bugs.  He calls an exterminator and who shows up managing the tenting crew, but Jessie.  Go.....

The Gene scenes are what I’ve found the most compelling. I want more Gene.

I loved them too.   I thought for most of them they were just nice glimpses into Jimmy's future but then this season I thought they were going for more with the taxi cab but we never came back to that.

Dammmm thats sucks

Juat watched BB for the 3rd time as it was my wifes 1st.

She didn't want to bother BCS as when she saw me watching some eps she said it looked so boring.

Had her watch 1st ep, she fell asleep. Texted me the next day that she watched 3 more on her own.

Bummer...i was looking forward to a season of BCS this year

Thats weird.  I would think in the stars contracts an availability clause would be in there so something like this would not happen.

If Mike dies before this ends, what happens?

I can't imagine this has many more seasons, right?  It's going to be longer than BB at this rate.  Plus, since it's a prequel, it's odd that everyone is going to look  20 years older than when they appeared on BB.

Just renewed for one more, "sixth and final" season, presumably to air in 2021.

He'll be "Carrie Fisher'd" in most likely.

Nacho is one of my favorite characters.  But he's almost certainly getting offed, right?  Especially after that one BB scene where he's kidnapped by Walt and Jessie and one of the things he says while pleading with them is "Is this about Nacho?"  I keep going back to that.  I guess it's possible he helps Nacho disappear or something.  

Is Jonathan Banks sick or something?  I know he's getting up there but is there a real risk of him dying?  

I'm sad Tyrus and Victor can't die in this.  I hate those two guys.
