We're back and covering the midseason premiere of #BetterCallSaul's 8th episode of it's 6th and final season, "Point and Shoot".
Thank goodness TWDU is on hiatus because we've now been able to make available the RAW and Unedited Recording of this Episode available to you and, believe me when I say, it's QUITE a doozy! We cut down over 15 minutes of extended laughter from horsing around: before, during, and after this recording (especially before: you have no idea how hard it was for Bridget to record that intro using her baby voice)! If you want to stream it, while supporting this podcast, you need only click this link and buy us a coffee (or join a membership tier for as little as $1 /month), here:

  • Would we have been better off starting the midseason break after this episode as opposed to the last one, Plan and Execution?

  • The music playing on Howard Hamlin's car stereo is Mazurka in the Style of Chopin, by Leslie Howard. Chopin refined this Polish (Peasant) Dance music for the age, which could be a reflection of many characters on the show. It was also meant to be played ad infinitum, which could be seen as a beautiful, upbeat (since they were largely played in major keys) memory that goes on forever or that no one will ever find Howard's body
    [Editor's Note: this is not the same Leslie Howard in Gone With The Wind]
  • Sherrandy: When Mike Ehrmantraut tells Jimmy McGill to put on an act in order to not raise suspicion about Howard's death, he embraces it in order to complete his Saul Goodman transformation.

  • Kim's assassination attempt on Gus, thwarted by Mike, is a direct callback to when Walter White attempted to murder Gus in Breaking Bad 4x02 Thirty-Eight Snub.

  • Dave: Kim's struggle with murdering Gus is also reminiscent to that of Jesse Pinkman's of Gale Boetticher on Breaking Bad.
  • Around this time, last year, Bob Odenkirk had a heart attack while filming the opening scene.

  • Dave reads the following from the Breaking Bad Wiki, "Jimmy collapses sideways on the ground (whilst tied up in his chair) crying in shock and grief upon facing Howard’s corpse. He did this in a similar fashion to how Gus, Walt, and Jesse reacted to their respective losses of Max Arciniega (Gus' boyfriend)Hank Schrader (Walt's D.E.A. brother-in-law), and Andrea Cantillo (Jesse's girlfriend)."

  • The writers took Saul Goodman's throw-away line in Breaking Bad, "It wasn't me! It was Ignacio," and used it to not only build the world of Better Call Saul, but made it significant: Jimmy is forever haunted by Lalo's murder of Howard and the terror that is the Salamanca family.

  • What are the motivations behind Lalo's actions? Enjoys the thrill of the hunt? The quest for righteousness?
  • At the beginning of the episode, Lalo sits Kim & Jimmy down to tell them what they will do for him. Mike does the same thing at the end of the episode.

  • The next episode is called Fun and Games. Bridget hopes it takes place at a carnival!

  • Dave takes what Sherrandy says about Lalo/Mike sitting Kim & Jimmy down and telling them what to do a little further by comparing and contrasting them to The Kettlemans: after Mike points out that they ought to continue to stick with their original scam (so as to not arouse suspicion), unlike the neurotic Kettlemans, they fully comprehend the consequences of their actions, rather than writing themselves in as the heroes of their own story or feigning victimhood.

  • Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, Tom Schnauz, and the series, itself, received Emmy Award Nominations.

  • After this episode, Kim is the only remaining main character on the series whose fate is unknown.

  • This is the fourth episode in the series to not use the traditional end credits theme music. The 3 other times occurred shortly after a main character in the series dies: Chuck McGill in Lantern, Ignacio "Nacho" Varga in Rock and Hard PlaceHoward Hamlin in Plan and Execution, and (now) Lalo Salamanca in Point and Shoot.
