Episode 3
Nacho




After the powerhouse return of Tuco in the previous episode, I was very much looking forward to this one because I knew it would be the litmus test for the series to stand on it's on. The series can't rely or expect to have familiar characters from Breaking Bad popping up to sustain it. BCS definitely needs to find it's own voice and I think they did just that tonight. This episode pretty much reaffirmed that Saul can carry this show on it's own and be very entertaining while doing it. Loved the "interrogation" scene with him and Nacho. Loved the scene with Saul basically doing detective work himself, which did a lot to prove that he is a smart and capable lawyer that knows his way around both sides of the law. Of course my favorite scene was Mike and Saul, but not for the reason you'd expect it to be. Sure, it was funny to see Mike throw him to the ground, but I liked seeing that moment where Mike chose to believe Saul's story about the self-kidnapping scenario. Once Mike refused to press charges, you immediately see whatever "bond" you think they have in Breaking Bad form right then and there and I like being able to tie both series together for this small, but crucial interplay between the two. What makes it even more fascinating is that this little moment basically sealed their fate as you know what eventually happens. Had Mike pressed charges, in all likelihood, the events of BB would have been much different as both characters would have gone their separate ways.

FYI, I gotta stop calling him 'Saul' since he is not technically Saul yet. Ack! Jimmy it is......
