Michael Mando on Twitter: “Running into some old friends as we do international press junket.” Through Mando’s tweet, we’ve learned that Vince directs 3.01. It was co-written with Peter Gould, and the name of the episode is “Mabel.” Any thoughts on the name?
Pokekids designs suggested by SquashiniKun on deviantart! I have to say I really like how these all turned out, particularly Sophie! I don’t know why but Pallosand was a tougher one to design a Pokekid out of, but at the end of the day I think she turned out ok!

The most obvious indicator of that evolution is the (re?) introduction of Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) — a spoiler only if you’ve avoided every bit of press about the series this year. AMC has openly acknowledged that Gus will be appearing in this season, but the guidelines provided to the press forbid us from mentioning exactly when it happens — which actually works in the show’s favor, because it helps craft the legend of Gus in his earlier days as that of an almost etherial figure. One comparison might be Keyser Soze from The Usual Suspects, but the more intriguing notion is the shark from Jaws. Always lurking. Always observing. Always ready to strike.
Better Call Saul gets a lot of praise and acclaim for its top-notch acting, smart writing and innovative filmmaking, and that continues in Season 3. At least one sequence in the first two episodes invokes comparisons to filmmakers like Terrence Malick and Steven Soderbergh. But more importantly, the show lives in the details it celebrates on screen, the details which make the show infinitely relatable to anyone who’s ever fussed over a semi-colon, or labored over a paint job.
I was making a model of Earth on photoshop for a project I got hired for and I was messing around with city lights/filters. This beauty was an accident but I’m literally too proud of it to not share it.
