Dang!  I missed Saul last night...

Besides Rhea Seahorn's great performance you didn't miss anything.

disagree. the shit that went down with Nacho was intense

It was.

But is it really that relevant to the Saul story? Maybe it leads to that but right now I don't see the connection. I'm watching for the evolution of Jimmy/Saul not that interested in anything else.
They are all intertwined (Saul, Mike, Gus, Nacho, etc.) How are we suppose to know what's going on with Mike if they are not showing us what the people that he is dealing with are doing?. You seem to want it to be more of a one dimensional show.

I don't want it to be one dimensional but I started running out of patience with the show last season. I didn't think we would be in season four and still not have Jimmy's transformation into Saul complete by now. It didn't take Walt too long to break bad. Why the hell have we had to wait so long for Saul? I just don't think following the walking dead format of extremely slow burn was the best way to go with it.
You seem upset because it is not telling the story that you want told. I have a feeling that maybe we won't get to see him become Saul until the series finale.

Jimmy is a more interesting character than Saul. I, for one, am dreading the eventual transformation.

I can see the cold-molasses pace getting old, especially if you're not into the side characters.

Well of course that's why I'm not enjoying it as much. The same with you or anyone else when they don't enjoy a movie, tv show or song/album from a band you like. You're not getting what you want out of it. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect a couple of seasons with him as Saul. I mean we better call him, right? It's in the title.

I like Mike and including Gus is fine as well. I just think there's too much focus on all the drug stuff. I just tune out during most of those scenes. Got enough of that in Breaking Bad. Showing some of the drug stuff is fine but I don't think it should have taken up so much of the shows time.

You're probably right about not getting Saul until the series finale though.

I agree with this.  That story has been told, for the most part.
