I was 12 when I made love for the first time, in Tropea, with a Roman girl who was 17 years old.

I think in Mike's position I probably could've thought of most of this scheme...

But I'd never have come up with the idea of draining the battery while still giving out a signal so that it doesn't abruptly end and give it away.

If they saw the battery suddenly drain quickly, they might have assumed the unit itself was defective.

Assuming we're still getting an Insider Podcast tomorrow for this episode, that'll provide 1,000% more behind-the-scenes info than Talking Saul ever would.

e: Wait, he literally has a show called Talking With Chris Hardwick now? Ahahahahaha, were the Nerdist podcast and all these aftershows not enough?!

It's the tape from the end of last season -- Jimmy confessing to deliberately changing the addresses in the Mesa Verde documents to gently caress up Chuck.

The Persian Menace

This whole hunting thing between Mike and the Cartel is some wonderful Looney Tunes love letter of Gilligan's I wager. It's perfect and is everything I wanted from a show centered around The Adventures of Mike Ehrmantraut.

Loved it, the parallel Jimmy and Mike stuff is so different and yet both always manage to up the tension in such different ways.

Yeah that's the best, he's pulling all the same little bullshit moves/fenagling people/conning them to get his way even though he knows it's outside the law. The one thing he could always dangle over Jimmy's head was his unassailable integrity and he's losing that now.

I also was kinda hoping that Howard would say (or at least think),"Jesus Chuck it sounds like your brother is humoring you to prevent you wrecking your life."

A lot of Breaking Bad was like that too.

The few times there wasn't much happening in Breaking Bad were like the small gaps between the excitement to give the audience a chance to breathe. Like Fly being between Hank's shootout with the twins and the crazy roller coaster that was to come in the final episodes of Season 3. It was almost always the case that when you were watching an episode and you were starting to get the feeling that things were slowing down, something explosive would happen. Everything was going well for Walt and Jesse in Season 2, then Skinny Pete would get robbed, leading immediately to Walt giving Jesse a gun to get the money back. Badger gets caught, immediately leading to Saul. Combo gets shot, immediately leading to Jesse being on heroin, in the same episode where Gus is introduced. There was always something.

Better Call Saul is always so uneventful. I was hoping it would be different this year. Still hoping. I mean things have to happen at some point.

"Surprise, muthafucka."

So glad I decided to catch up on this and that it's back. Mike is scary loving patient and cunning. I didn't even fully realize what he was doing until he pulled out the tracker at the end, and slowly wearing out the battery instead of just yanking it was genius.

I honestly didn't realize the level of Chuck-hate until I read this thread since I only just recently binged the show, and while I totally understand, holy gently caress does Michael McKean act the poo poo out of it. I've never seen him in anything as serious as this and he is great.

Um. First off, it's an RF transmitter, not a GPS unit. Secondly, it seems to be a specialized unit and not something that would be sold retail which is why he needed the model/serial number. Thirdly, he needed the same exact model to find out how it and its tracking unit functioned and to fool whoever is tracking him. Fourth, you're probably just trolling and I fell for it, but it's ok because maybe someone reading this legitimately was wondering.
