While watching last night’s “Better Call Saul” episode, “Nacho,” I couldn’t help but think about how Vince Gilligan likes to explore the (often) inevitable disappointments of being part of a family—how we do things we know we shouldn’t do for those who are close to us; how we manage to let them down; how deluded we can be about them; and how, even in the most trying circumstances, a small part of us can call out for reconciliation with them.
***I will go into a few specific details of events from this show, so SPOILER ALERT***
I had a weird relationship with “Breaking Bad” before I started my binge a little over a month ago. I had tried it a few years ago but was bored by the first few episodes and gave up, admittedly too quickly. Ever since, all I heard about it was that it was god’s gift to television and the greatest show ever and yada yada yada.
