Anybody remember him from Wise Guy?
 
One of the best shows on tv in the 80's.


I do. Maybe one of the most underrated shows ever.
Come on down to the hotel, baby. I can be what you want me to be. You can choke on your own medication, and i can watch myself on tv. Shut your mouth you big f*cking baby. I cant be what you want me to be. Go on choke on your own medication. I can tell you a lie you'll believe, yeah yeah.

Yep.  Jerry Lewis was also amazing during his stint on the show.

The show is depressing.

 

Jimmy is going to get focked up when he eventually gets muscled out of the class action lawsuit, by HHM and his brother. Chuck will of course side with his partners, legally and otherwise, since he is an employee of theirs and this is their suit by extension. Kim will eventually betray Jimmy for a partnership in HHM, starting with the printing paper trail and such. Jimmy will then change names do to the betrayal of his brother and namesake.

 

Meanwhile, Mike's daughter in law is being very subtle in her blackmail. Hear about Mike's revenge on his son's killers. After time goes by, invite him to babysit granddaughter. Show money. Talk about bills and how badly off they are financially. Put Mike on the spot to keep paying. She now knows the envelope was from him. She would absolutely go to the cops unless Mike keeps giving her money.

Do you find this show more depressing than Breaking Bad?

 

I agree that the characters in this show paint a pretty grim view of our society, but Jimmy at least injects some humor into every episode.

I am only half way through Breaking Bad as of now.

 

It's hard to find time to watch everything right now. You have more quality TV than ever before. More channels with great shows on cable. Streaming services with original content. The ability to watch any show from any time, and watch the entire series immediately. Just when things start to wind down with shows ending for a season like Walking Dead, here comes Game of Thrones and Orphan Black. I'm stuck in the comic book vortex with Flash and Agents of Shield, with Daredevil starting next month, it never ends.

I don't have any premium channels, I barely use my AppleTV and I got rid of Netflix.  Since football season ended, there hasn't been a ton of stuff I watch.  Right now it seems like almost everything I watch is on Wed or Friday, so the DVR works overtime for 2 days and then there's a whole bunch of nothing.  I think Shark Tank and Jeopardy are the only network shows I watch now.  Everything else is on Comedy Central, FX, FXX, AMC, Palladia, or PBS.

 

It works out I since my store is busier this time of year and the weather allows me to get outside a lot more often.

I think the brother is going to die. Of natural causes. But yes, the chick is totally going to fock him over. Can't trust them broads :thumbsdown:

It's definitely going that way.  I also think Mike could be brought in to disrupt and/or avenge HHM's shenanigans.

- Pimento -

 

 

I've known good criminals and bad cops, bad priests, honorable thieves. You can be on one side of the law or the other, but if you make a deal with somebody, you keep your word. You can go home today with your money and never do this again, but you took something that wasn't yours and you sold it for a profit. You are now a criminal. Good one, bad one, that's up to you.

 

 

This show has really started to peak. Like Breaking Bad, it continues to explore the question of, "who's good and who's bad" and in doing so destroys the small-minded idea that the world can so easily be seen in black and white. Mike's quote (above) is the exclamation point to it all.

 

Saul - Slippin' Jimmy, a wormy, snake of a lawyer who we know will become one of the seediest lawyers ever. But we also know he's desperately trying to be a good guy- - he's fighting, kicking, and clawing to stay good and honest.

 

Chuck - The "good" brother who followed the rules, did everything right, and became a huge success - respected by all. But we know his character is flawed, he's a judgmental, ego-maniac that would keep his own brother down to protect his station in the world and his own perceived success.

 

Howard - The top lawyer at the top firm who openly despises and spits on the little and "lesser" people. But for years he took blame and grief for not accepting Jimmy. He nobly played the ass-hole, denying Jimmy even though it was Chuck's doing all along.

 

Mike - a retired, dirty cop. A murderer and hired hand for criminals. But maybe the most calm, honorable, and upstanding character in both Saul and BB.

The HHM story line was somewhat predictable but still good to watch play out.  Mike's handling of the protection job was extremely well done.

Was talking about this the other day and for my money, just more Mike. Jimmy, is pretty much Saul already...it doesn't seem like it's that far down the road to exit Saul...but Mike's story arc is really a lot more interesting, probably in part due to the fact that Jonathan Banks is a better actor than than Bob O. Bummed there are only a couple of episodes left for the season.

Still watching, agree with everyone saying it's been a pretty slow season though.  Even a lot of the Mike stuff has been pretty "Meh".  Hopefully they finish with a bang.
