The thing is... Chuck is right. We know what happens and people will get hurt. You still can't help but feel that betrayal though.

Also, that was Trevor from GTA5! So was!


I was totally thinking that second point.

Fantastic episode, really really enjoying this series.
IMO :P :wink: :P :wink: :P :wink:

But - but but but! - Jimmy was so close to leaving his dodgy past behind and being legitimately successful, and Chuck has taken that from him. Chuck is only right because Chuck has destroyed his big chance to turn things around, and that's what makes it so ironically brutal. I love this show.

It's distinguished itself from Breaking Bad now. BB showed the story of a man desperately trying to be a criminal, but BCS is showing the story of a man desperately trying to be legitimate while everyone tells him he's not. It's got the potential to be as good as BB at the very least.

What I like is that it took a Slippin' Jimmy with the billboard to get the ball rolling and to (probably) reaffirm Chuck's decision to keep him out of HHM.

The debate is a bit chicken-or-egg ish, which I love. Chuck's right, but only in a self-fulfilling prophecy kinda way. His betrayal is what (we guess) ultimately makes Saul.

He's such a likeable character that it's actually pretty wrenching seeing that all his hard work to be legit is finally paying off only to see him just walk away from it. Watched ep1 of s2 with the gf last night and we were just like "Take the damn job!" for the whole thing.

I like this show. It's got just enough of the amazing breaking bad vibe to keep me watching. Plus bob odenkirk is a really great actor to watch.

Is it just me or is it really hard to see past Vaas from Far Cry 3 in that Nacho dude?

Weird as you would expect to have the same reaction with any actor who's known for being in something else, but it seems to be more pronounced with someone who's been in a game. I just can't seem to shake that Vaas vibe that emanates from him, quite distracting. Although it's probably just me.

Now you have mentioned it! It was bugging me to he'll about where I thought I knew this guy from and that has totally scratched the itch.

Vaas...

Utterly.

Whilst watching This Is Spinal Tap together last night Mrs.Dr@gon pointed at the lead singer and said "guess who he's well known in now?" When she told me I was gobsmacked, I watch Tap at least yearly since it's release and still never twigged -

Well, I'll be buggared, never even wondered where I'd seen him before...

Still absolutely loving the show, the steady burn is delicious, especially Mike, just brilliant.

Same here, loving how the plots seem to be always 50/50 Jimmy + Kim and Mike atm, two great storylines. To be honest Mike was always my favourite character in BB, even more so than Walt.
