Don't get me started about Hummels, much less Lladro.

Any opinions on Limoges? Nambé?

No. My late mother was really into Hummels, and when my imaginary college girlfriend and I went to Spain for a summer, I was tasked with bringing back a Lladró, which proved to be well beyond my means. I'm leaving to visit my father on the 26th, so I can tell you what porcelain I wound up choosing.

My Mum has a large collection of Lladró.  Is it worth something, then?

SPOILER ALERT 


The season finale was terrific.  Loose ends were tied up, and new questions arose.   Although it explained how Jimmy McGill became Saul Goodman (which we knew if we had been paying attention) I still don't get what that underground bunker is all about.  Nor do I know why the German engineer had to be killed. (Was there a metaphor about the Holocaust or am I over thinking this?)  But Jonathan Banks is such an amazing and riveting actor I had to replay that scene over and over. 
If I had known that I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself.   (Plagerized from numerous other folks)

Because Gus Fring does not tolerate loose ends or loose cannons. Until he goes against his better judgment to make a deal with one Walter Hartwell White.

I guess that is my problem.  I keep forgetting that this is a prequel, and, unfortunately,  I never watched "Breaking Bad".  By the way, the expression on Jimmy McGill's girlfriend's face when she realizes that McGill might not be the person whom she thought he was was another highlight of the show.

Ah, I didn't realize you haven't seen Breaking Bad.

SPOILER (minor one, but still):




The chemist Gale Boetticher (David Costabile), who you saw touring the unfinished bunker in Monday's episode with Gus, will build a meth lab in that bunker either prior to or during the events of Breaking Bad.  We're shown a montage of Gale unboxing top-dollar lab equipment -- some of it purchased from a division of Madrigal Electromotive, of course -- in the empty, finished bunker.  (Gale then marvels that Gus "spared no expense" building the lab, encouraging him to hire the most skilled chemist available [Walt] in order to get the most out of his massive investment.  This is one of the deciding factors in Gus hiring Walt despite his initial misgivings.)

Gale and Walt will also cook in the bunker/lab together.  What we're seeing in Better Call Saul is the initial groundbreaking and construction, which was never shown in Breaking Bad.  It's simply introduced as a giant Superlab in the ground underneath the industrial laundromat.

It's about damn time Rhea Seehorn wins some awards for her work on this show.  So great.

It was her Hank on the toilet moment.

She's done some great work this season.  The scene with Howard at HHM and the scene with Jimmy on the rooftop were both brilliant.

This show is better than Breaking Bad.
