Man, I am going to miss this show (and this world) so much. I am equally excited and sad about tonight.

I've never seen this before, but am interested. Can I skip the previous 60+ episodes?

Is this going to be around 90 minutes tonight, or is there a post episode show planned?

Going with my prediction he ends up in prison, possibly a mentor to his fellow inmates whom he probably represented at one point. Maybe Kim comes to visit him for one final scene separated by glass. However, I'm really hoping he grabs his diamonds and escapes to Alaska where he runs into Jesse and the two share an apartment maintained by their new landlady Francesca, getting into zany hi-jinks, driving each other crazy with their clashing personalities but deep down always devoted best friends.

No Talking Saul? I'm surprised.

Re: Better Call Saul (S6E13) - Series Finale - "Saul Gone" - 8/15/22

Judging by the last few episodes, I expect the finale to be very divisive. Could they return to form and deliver a fairly straight forward exciting finale? I guess but I do not expect that at all. I expect another glacially paced episode with an unsatisfying ending that some viewers and critics will write 5000 words explaining and defending. I hope I am wrong. BCS has been one of my favorite shows but the Gene episodes maybe outside of Carol Burnett's performance to just be bad quite honestly.

I am perplexed by the the two teasers which have been revealed:

Spoiler:
  • Appearance of Walter White
  • Return to Saul's wrecked car in the desert


Reeeeally curious about how these will work into BCS Felina.

Re: Better Call Saul (S6E13) - Series Finale - "Saul Gone" - 8/15/22

Not sure I totally agree with the rankings, and this show doesn't have the unquestionably legendary iconic top episode like " Ozymandias", "Long Tern Parking", "The Suitcase" "The Constant" or "The Rains of Castamere" to obviously lock up the top spot - - Heck, I didn't guess it after reading 25-2, not that it was a bad choice at all, just not the one that came to mind for me. Still this is a very cool look back at the top episodes from the entire run (though there may be some recency bias, five of the last six episodes appear on the list). Well worth the read.

Sooo excited for tonight. While not as good as Breaking Bad , I would still rank it in my top ten shows of all time.

My guess for tonight is Gene turns himself in but finds a way to avoid prison by some crazy Slippin Jimmy scheme. It might be some kind of contingency plan he has in place.

I did this for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The very last episode was my first. For The Sorpranos, I started with the penultimate episode so I've only ever seen the final two.

I don't know what I want from the final episode, except more colour. As much as I've enjoyed the show, for me, Saul's story always took a backseat to whatever was going on with Mike and Nacho and the cartels. These last few episodes focusing solely on Saul are getting long in the tooth. Frankly, I'll glad for the whole thing to be over with, because after the last couple episodes, I don't really care what happens to Saul. Whether he goes to jail or dies or lives happily ever after with Kim, it's all the same to me.

Very bizarre, but same here with Buffy.

AMC looks terrible on Comcast and now I’m watching on yOUtubeTV and it looks just as awful.

AMC+ worked fine for me. Just finished it.

Pretty good overall. Nothing really too surprising. Nice to see Betsy Brandt return. Loved that scene. The Walt scene was good, but what an asshole.

Loved the noir-ness of Jimmy and Kim smoking in the prison at the end. Really well lit.
