I saw it. The opening scenes were confusing. What was Mike doing getting off the Rail Runner after it came up from its 30 mile run from Belen ? (some of you have been on that route). Then he goes in the rest room and we see that he's been shot. What the...? How/why does he get shot riding the Rail Runner to/from Belen ? But then it becomes clear later when we see that he rode AMTRACK from Philly for at least two days with a bullet in his shoulder. The west bound AMTRACK train would arrive from the north not the south as its 'stand in' the Rail Runner did.

But it was a good back story for Mike and we know more about how he became as he is.....

I found out today that one of our club members was approached by the producers to use his house as Saul's house after he becomes more affluent. That house is in 4 Hills and is really nice. But his wife put the brakes on it. It will be interesting to see what they finally got for Saul's house.

All the people in tonight's scene in the retirement home were actual residents. Can't find the article....

So I guess that Saul's big, new office in the high rise office building (couldn't quite place which one it is but it overlooks I-25 on the east) will have to be given up since he can't afford it now, which makes sense because on Breaking Bad his office was in a little strip mall up on Menaul Blvd.

That was more of a 'low key' ep, but an interesting look at legal shenanigans. It's interesting to see Gilligan's trade mark of filming scenes of the actors from a long distance, as in the house when they were reconstituting the shredded paper and the last scene where Chuck realizes he's outside without 'electronic trauma'. two thumbs up

It's interesting that they would use the name of a real apt. complex here, although it doesn't have "Crossing" in the name and isn't a retirement home, and is only two stories high. †I lived next door to it in another complex in the late 70's.

Better Call Saul Q&A Ė Rhea Seehorn (Kim Wexler)

better-call-saul-season-1-character-portrait-kim-seehorn-325Rhea Seehorn, who plays Kim Wexler on AMCís Better Call Saul, talks about Kimís relationships with Jimmy and Howard and getting a pedicure from Bob Odenkirk.

Q: Youíve mentioned being a huge fan of Bob Odenkirk since his days on Mr. Show. How did you react when you found out you were going to have the opportunity to work with him?

A: I auditioned with him with the scene in Episode 103 where he wakes me up in the middle of the night. It was exciting. I was certainly nervous at first, but everybody in the room had an energy of ďwe canít wait for you to be great.Ē I was overjoyed to get to work with him. Iíve been a huge fan of his, and I just think heís one of the funniest, smartest writers and, at that time, sketch performers. I started to see more and more of the depth and breadth of his work. That guy is amazing!

Q: How did you and Bob approach developing the rapport between Jimmy and Kim? Thereís obviously chemistry and a shared history between them, but that history is being revealed very slowly ó does that make portraying their relationship harder?

A: Itís a joy to play, because all of our amazing writers and directors are writing this relationship with deep intimacy, love and history. Theyíre not making it this thing that you can label. Itís not black and white, and I donít think the most interesting relationships are. I find that great. Itís not hard to play whatís there. Kim is very much a character where what she doesnít say is also what she says. Iím given space, and Bob is so great to rehearse with. We do the scenes a ton of different ways to find that organic roller coaster ride to take to all the places the scene will go.

Q: Kim also has an unusual relationship with her boss, Howard. He seems to view her as a protťgťe, but is also quick to give her the cold shoulder when she loses the Kettlemans as a client in Episode 107. How would you describe their relationship?

A: I was very surprised when I got that script. That was one of the moments I was excited to explore. Howard quickly just throws me under the bus and dismisses me to, as Jimmy calls it, the cornfield.(That's a really 'down in the weeds', inside joke based on an old Twilight Zone episode). I know Howard lost a client, but I absolutely believe what he later tells Jimmy, which is, she worked her ass off. The Kettlemans are crazy and guilty, thereís no way around it, and getting them any kind of deal is something she was proud of doing for them. I think itís a seed of information that Kim has to take in about the sure ground she thought she was on ó sheís not.

Q: During your chat on Twitter, you revealed that blue is Kimís signature color, much like purple was MarieĎs signature color on Breaking Bad. Did you have any input into choosing Kimís color, or was that solely a decision by costume designer Jennifer Bryan? Do you have a signature color in real life?

A: Itís a pleasure to be in the space with the person that Jennifer is. Sheís creative, amazing and brilliant. There was no sitting down with me, but I do remember being in a lot of blues ó how they are used in respect to the character symbolically Iím not sure yet, but Jennifer is so in tune with helping to tell a story. Itís all about the storytelling for her. I personally wear a lot of earth tones ó does that make me boring? I donít know. [Laughs] I do like a pop of color, like red shoes or a bright orange jacket.

Q: Who would you want to represent you in court, Jimmy or Kim? Why?

A: It depends on what I got in trouble for! It would definitely depend on the case. If I can choose whomever I want, then I pick both of them. They would fill in each otherís holes.

Q: When fans recognize you in public, how often do they speak to you in Jimmyís ďsex robotĒ voice from Episode 103?

A: [Laughs] I do get a lot of tweets about it. People on the street like Kimís character, and theyíve been incredibly gracious and complimentary of the whole show.

Q: In Episode 104, Jimmy and Kim have a conversation at the nail salon while Jimmy paints Kimís toes. Were there enough takes for you to end up with a full pedicure? How did it come out?

A: After so many takes, our lovely makeup artist had to try to remove all this paint that was being built up. It was getting pretty sloppy. He did pretty well, though! But he should keep his day job.

I like Kim's character a lot too. We are really getting a very interesting look at what builds up to "Saul" . I'm glad we have this series.

I noticed something interesting in last night's ep. †Here's a scene when they were on the next-to-the -top level of the Convention Center parking structure.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Here's a pic I took last Saturday coming back from the cat show to the east parking structure. That's the Alvarado Station where Mike arrived after being shot, also where some of you boarded the Rail Runner.

Another shot I took, and seen in the background in several scenes from "Pimento".

I'm still trying to figure out where Chuck's house is. I'm beginning to think it's in the Country Club area, rather than in Ridgecrest. That would be near Jessie's house off of 15th St. but a little further south around the golf course. There aren't many areas in Albq. where there are big, expensive houses surrounded by such large, old Cottonwood trees. It takes a long time for them to get that old and they only get that big near the river where the Country Club area is, the 'traditional' place where Albq.'s 'movers and shakers' have lived in years past.

This would seem to be little early since more filming locations will exist as the show progresses, but since the final episode for the first half of the total season is tonight, and no more will be seen until next fall or later, they at least have some locations to take a tour to. But I think they won't get too many customers right now for the Saul tour although there could be some 'spill over' from the BB tour customers...... scratch

After about 45 minutes into the season finale I couldn't help but laugh. Were there that many gullible people in Chicago back then ? How many scams could they know ? A lot. And then Marco buys the farm in the alley while doing the "Rolex scam" just as they did in the first episode.

Then Jimmy decides to ignore the Santa Fe lawyers offer and turn to the "shady side" of lawyering leading to his 'evolution' into Saul Goodman which I think we'll see in the second half of the season. Exactly what his motivation is, it seemed to come on suddenly, maybe because of his experiences in Chicago, scratch or maybe because of his rejection by Chuck scratch ..........we'll see...

Maybe he's letting his brother''s vision of him define his own self image. Brother says he''ll always be "Slippin' Jimmy" and so he's done fighting to change that.

A shame tho, the girl has faith in him and how different his life would go if he had let her influence him.

Michael McKean is great and is perfect for the part of the brother. I hadn't watched the finale but a friend at work said she saw it and didn't know what to think. I had that same conclusion after I saw it but agree with you both. He had to hit rock bottom before we understand how he became Saul. I think next season is going to be very interesting and I can't wait.
