Kyle’s Choice

bettercallsaul28smallTonight is the first half of the 2-night premiere of the new AMC series Better Call Saul. The show is a prequel to Breaking Bad, set 6 years prior, and follows the exploits of courtroom lawyer Jimmy McGill as he (d)evolves into the sleazy Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk). Working alongside Jimmy is “fixer” Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), another character Breaking Bad viewers will be familiar with. The series also stars Michael McKean (Family Tree), Rhea Seehorn (Franklin & Bash, Whitney), Patrick Fabian (Working Class), and Michael Mando (Orphan Black).

When I first heard about this series, and it was rumored to be a sitcom, I was really scared, However, once it was announced that it was going to be a drama, I have been really looking forward to revisiting the world of Saul Goodman. I’m also excited that Mike will be on the sho. He was one of my favorite Breaking Bad characters, and it will be fun to see how he and Saul butt heads — no-nonsense meets all-nonsense! The series has already been picked up for a second season, so tonight is just the first of many cases we’ll Saul Goodman take on.

On tonight’s 75-minute episode, “Uno,” Jimmy McGill is working his magic in the courtroom when unexpected inspiration leads him to an unconventional pursuit of potential clients.

See what inspires Jimmy tonight on AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, Worst Cooks in America, The Walking Dead, Taking Dead, Togetherness, Looking, Shameless, Episodes, and Mike Tyson Mysteries.

brooklyn9928smallBrooklyn Nine-Nine is still one of the funniest comedies on TV. On the last new episode, Jake was concerned when Sophia seemed to be pulling away from him, and he was right to be concerned. When he confronted her about it, she said that her colleagues had been giving her grief for dating a cop. He knew it all stemmed from her boss, so he went to a party they were attending and tried to make friends with the guy. It seemed to be working, but then Jake caught him snorting cocaine in the bathroom and arrested him. That was the right thing to do — although he could’ve gone about it a little less…publicly — yet Sophia totally took her boss’s side and ended up breaking up with Jake. I, for one, am thrilled because I want him to be free to flirt and crush on Amy, even though they won’t get together yet. I’m also loving the Charles/Gina story line, with their parents getting together. There’s so much chemistry between the two that it’s not even funny.

On tonight’s episode, “Windbreaker City,” Jake is heartbroken over Sophia, but his spirits are lifted when the squad is invited to a Homeland Security terrorist training simulation. That is, until the agent in charge assigns them the lame role of playing hostages. Meanwhile, Gina administers a psychological exam to Holt, and Amy and Rosa compete for a day off from work. Nick Kroll & Eva Longoria guest star.

Watch Jake’s reaction to learning he’s a hostage tonight on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, The Great British Baking Show, Guy’s Grocery Games,Worst Cooks in America, & Cutthroat Kitchen.
