If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/6/18

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, Better Call Saul returns to AMC to kick off its fourth season. During last season’s finale, Howard had had enough of Chuck’s drama. He handed him a $3M personal check to buy out his part of the firm and then immediately announced Chuck’s departure to the entire firm. When Jimmy heard the news, he went to apologize to his older brother, but Chuck didn’t want to hear it. Later that evening, Chuck had another one of his panic attacks, tearing apart his home looking for the source of an electronic hum. Chuck had lost his job, and his reputation, and couldn’t control his anxiety. He had had enough – he kicked some piles of paper in his office that were holding up a lantern, until it fell over, setting the whole house ablaze with him still inside.

Meanwhile, Kim had already decided to take some time off after her car accident, and now Jimmy was about to have some free time of his own. Jimmy felt guilt over destroying Irene Landry’s life, and when he couldn’t con her friends into accepting her back, he orchestrated an accidental confession during bingo. This basically destroyed his credibility at the old-age home and caused his clients to flee en masse. And finally, Nacho watched from his car as Hector, Gus, and Juan had an argument outside his father’s upholstery shop. Hector clutched his chest and collapsed to the ground. Surprisingly, Gus Fring administered CPR, saving Hector’s life. Surely part of some master plan.

I’m looking forward to another season of Better Call Saul tonight. How is Jimmy going to react to his brother’s death/suicide, and will this be what finally pushes him to become Saul Goodman? And how will this affect Kim and Jimmy’s seemingly doomed relationship? And what else will we learn of the larger Madrigal business that plays such a major role in Breaking Bad?

On tonight’s premiere, “Smoke,” Jimmy struggles to cope with Chuck’s tragic death; Mike ponders his role at Madrigal; and Howard makes a startling confession.

Check out how the season begins tonight on AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Lodge 49.
