    Most of his scenes, mainly the final onde and the scenes at the Bar with Kim, his scene outside the instrument store was great too. Up to this day I never felt his acting was genuine, good to know he indeed stand amongst the greatest actors today.

    I thought it was kind of a ho-hum episode, another one after the great mid-point ‘Chicanery’.   The season will end well I’m sure, but there have been some valleys.  Good tape for Odenkirk, we’re seeing the hardening of his character this week, but I think he’ll have a better tape or two.

    Filler-ish episode, though the ending scene with Jimmy at the malpractice office was stellar for Bob Odenkirk. It’s the kind of scene that would win actors Emmys back in the day with tapes. There hasn’t been nearly enough Giancarlo Esposito lately, sadly enough, but maybe that’s slightly compensated with more Nacho scenes and his scheme to take down Salamanca. I guess this is how he becomes paralyzed? Okay then. Liked seeing that baseball card dweeb guy again. I don’t know what the hell they’re doing with Mike this season. Jonathan Banks deserves far better than this. I mean, yay Tamara Tunie and all, but I don’t need Mike having a love interest or whatever this ends up being. One check-in scene with Chuck would have been nice too.

    Does anybody know if Tamara Tunie was submitted in guest? If she gets in I could easily see her getting nominated. If she gets more to do though. I suspect she will.

    This show is screwing with me. A very average season with an amazing episode, chicanery. This episode was eh. Odenkirk was once again emmy worthy though. My grade: B-

    Episode Title: “Slip”

    Synopsis: Jimmy is pushed to desperate measures; Nacho picks up a skill; Mike explores an alliance; Kim stands up to Hamlin.

    The best scene of the episode was between Michael McKean and Clea Duvall. I’m fully invested in Chuck’s journey and recovery, though I doubt he’ll top his performance in “Chicanery” in these last two episodes. Hope that Giancarlo Esposito really has something big to justify him reprising Gus on here. I’ll gladly take any Gus/Mike scenes I can get, but it can’t only be that. I’m transfixed by Michael Mando in a great showcase episode for Nacho. I don’t know if I’d rather see Nacho getting away with bringing about Hector’s downfall or not now. Jimmy’s scenes played interestingly. It would be so easy to do a lazy time jump and get Jimmy/Saul back in the lawyering game, but I like scrappy, aimless Jimmy doing whatever he can to make a buck too. The cold open felt awkward and shoehorned in, but it was cool seeing Marco again lol.

    Mando is now on my personal list for supporting actor. He acted so well with such little dialogue, even better than Banks has this season.

    Nominations across the board from Orange is the New Black, Better Call Saul, and Silicon Valley

    Banks really hasn’t had much to do this season. I’m starting to think McKean outright replaces him in Supporting Actor, al la Harris over Slattery in 2012.

    Mando was indeed incredible here. And yes, Banks doesn’t deserve a nomination this year (nor does Esposito, for that matter).

    eh. This season is very average apart from the incredible “Chicanerey”. This episode was standerd fare. How long do we need to watch Jimmy be a commercial dude? Mando was great though.

    My grade: B

    Could this show win? I’ve been thinking about it. This is the only returning nominee that has a better reception than last year. With so many new contenders, the Emmy voters may look to something familiar.

    It would be amazing if Better Call Saul prevailed in Drama Series. That said, realistically, The Crown probably has the edge. Oderkirk is definitely in play, though, as would be McKean if he’s nominated. Perhaps in writing, too.

    I don’t think it’s possible for a returning nominee to win this year but if there is any chance of stopping the newcomers this will be the one to do it
