Started ‘Black Bird’ on AppleTV and really like it. There’s only two episodes out at the moment but they were good.

The question is why would she do that?

I thought, outside chance, WitSec but that's off the table after tonight's episode.

Although, to your point, while I think that's really weak [story-wise] it's plausible and would make sense.

I think Jimmy talks her into it.


But I do agree with you. It’s weak writing. I just also think it’s the only thing that makes sense as far as Saul going on. I think her dying would push him over the edge. I think he’d be able to go on and practice law in breaking bad knowing she’s safe somewhere. I don’t think he could go on if she were killed.

Finally finished season 3 and started season 4 in my rewatch of Ozarks.

The last two Saul's have been masterpieces. Breaking Bad level.

They have been.

That said, not a big fan.  I feel like the series could have easily been condensed into 2 seasons.  I said early in S1 that it was an indulgent, slow burn that would never have happened if not for Breaking Bad.

Animal Kingdom, one of my favorites. Couple episodes behind.

Old Man, just finished episode two and like it.

Black Bird. My favorite show right now. Love it.

On deck: The Bear on Hulu and/or Lincoln Lawyer on Netflix

I just listened to the book for old man this week and for the first time ever the show is better than the book

It felt somewhat disappointing but also a bit masterful 🤷🏻‍♂️

Agreed. One very important moment felt rushed and kind of anti-climatic or the ending could have been much better.  Otherwise, I suppose it was intended to make us a bit mad.

The end of Saul last night was perfection. Really, really, really good way to end it.
