Is it out? Where you guys watched it?April 4, 2017 at 12:33 pm #1202054941
I’m guessing rstang got a screener or something. I haven’t seen the ep yet, I was just making a general statement that I’ve always been completely engaged throughout the run of the series so far.April 5, 2017 at 12:10 pm #1202056487
Interesting bit of info from Variety: Gilligan stepped down as co-showrunner midway through S3 so he could work on his Jim Jones HBO Miniseries. He’ll still be heavily involved with the show, but just not involved with day-to-day. He plans to return as co-showrunner after he’s done with the HBO project, which could be a couple years from now, who knows?
Gilligan was actually supposed to hand over the reigns to Gould after S1, so it’s not that surprising, but it should be interesting to see how it affects the show.

I loved this. I totally disagree about it being boring. I was 100% captivated by Banks’s performance and the mystery. I was on the edge of my seat about Chuck’s plan. Seahorn was fantastic with her small screentime. McKean was also great. I really liked this episode. I also loved the scene with the air force dude. I do need more Odenkirk though. My grade: B+.April 10, 2017 at 8:34 pm #1202062773
I have absolutely no idea why anyone would have found any part of this episode boring.April 10, 2017 at 8:45 pm #1202062780
This was far from the most boring television hours of the year. In fact, few other programs have captivated me this year so far aside from this one.April 10, 2017 at 11:49 pm #1202062952
Solid premiere. I could do without the show’s indulging in itself sometimes, but I did like the ingenuity of Mike’s scheme and figuring it out along the way well enough.
Mainly I hope this season has more forward momentum than last season.April 11, 2017 at 9:24 am #1202063346
Really loved this episode. Kim is one of my favorite characters on TV for sure. All the performances are amazing and the directing constantly stands out to me.April 15, 2017 at 10:53 pm #1202067597
Not a bad premiere, but not the thrill ride I was hoping for. Mike’s scenes with the tracking device really tested my patience, and Jonathan Banks is practically the sole reason I continue to watch this series. I’m so ready for Giancarlo Esposito to return for some Mike/Gus scenes, so this all felt like filler to me. My favorite scenes were the opening ones with “Gene” and his unhappy life as a Cinnabon manager with a glimpse of Saul Goodman at the end. I’d be fine with a bottle episode solely focused on Gene, which I read is something that the show might do in the future. I like it for making me reminisce about the continued aftermath of “Breaking Bad.” I’m sort of interested in Chuck’s revenge plot on Jimmy, but it’s a cheat that the finale made it seem like retaliation would happen immediately, but of course, instead it will be dragged out all season long. Don’t care at all what the hell Kim is doing or why she’s doing it, as usual. In the end, I wasn’t “bored” necessarily, just disappointed. Probably their weakest season premiere ever, but lesser shows have rebounded over worse and rallied, so onto next episode and Gus Fring, bitches!April 17, 2017 at 4:00 pm #1202069039
Episode Title: “Witness”

Is Gus Fring confirmed to be returning tonight?April 17, 2017 at 8:15 pm #1202069210
I’m struggling to envision a scenario where Odenkirk doesn’t have the best leading man performance of the year. He displayed pretty much everything tonight and that final scene was sooooo good. All around solid episode, and the preview for next week looked awesome!
