While that's kind of funny, I'm not sure what the ultimate value is of Bob Odenkirk and Bryan Cranston glowering from behind some meth fumes and a furry convenience store clerk is to a gas station Cinnabon.

Certainly cliche but I could see a wacky sitcom with Saul and Huell set around a cinnabun store.

I thought Saul's sendoff was underwhelming considering what a dynamic character he was throughout the show. It was nice how he no longer feared Walt though.

I absoluted needed 4 different pictures (cell phone pic quality) of that sign to get gist of it.

I wonder if they understood that his line was talking about what a shiatty future he had in store.

Huell is still in the room.

While his departure was sudden, I felt like it fit him perfectly. He had always been the voice of reason, striving to keep everyone's emotions and egos under control. It would only make sense for him to say "fark it" and get out once things got truly heavy.

That's Saul though: underwhelming but effective.  He seems like a schlub but he knows all the ins and outs of the law and how to get things done for his clients.  And he's smart.  He got out just as things were going badly, got out before anyone figured out how he tied into anything.

Of all the characters on the show, Saul had the absolute cleanest, consequence free departure hands down.  Even Badger and Skinny Pete might get the ol' Federal Anal Probe sometime down the line.  Saul on the other hand... Saul has no Feds looking at him, nobody trying to kill him, and a completely new identity to use in establishing himself as a Cinnabon Manager by Night, Assistant Money Launderer by Day.

Why is it shiatty? Some people....

The real shame is, and this is certainly Walter White's biggest mistake, what Saul's Cinnabon store truly needs is Gale's coffee.

Gale's Coffee + Cinnabon is a force that cannot be stopped.

Killing Gale and not stealing the best coffee in the world was incredibly stupid.

Well, there was some fear.... 'till Walt started coughing up a lung

Airports are the only place I would eat Cinnabon. The decadent richness should not be experienced more frequently.

He was never shown leaving, and may well have been forgotten by the DEA in the uproar following what happened to Hank and Gomez. He wouldn't have left by himself because he was convinced he'd be in danger if he did.

I started to wonder about that. Huell told things to agents who died before they reported it, so there might be no aiding and abetting or other related charges.

Heck, he might still be in the safe house.

And down under 200 pounds because there's no food and no one came back for him.

Never had a Cinnabon but I will now!  Love company with a sense of humor

Can you really just become a manager right off?  I thought you had to work up to that shiat.

I've been to Omaha. They have a great steak house and they sell liquor at the grocery store. That's about it. Never saw a Cinnabon.
 
2013-10-10 06:23:48 AM
I'm from Omaha, and this tickles me. I miss that city sometimes, it had some pretty fun things to do. (no, not cow tipping and tractor pulls)

Well now I know what I'm having as soon as I get off this train.

And he will still miss the 80's

I would like to see an AMC show with Saul's bodyguard running a rollerskating ring. Call it Huell On Wheels

Omaha is scheduled to do the 1980s soon, they're trying to catch up with the rest of the country.
 
2013-10-10 08:21:21 AM
Cool and all but they'll be getting a C&D from AMC very soon. I can't believe a sign company made that with no clearances at all but there are a lot of shady sign companies out there.
 
2013-10-10 08:43:18 AM
Pretty sure his last line was, "It's over."

Only if each episode features a "GOD DAMMIT!" outburst by Saul in classic Odenkirk style.

It's possible I'm already forgetting some details from the finale, but wouldn't he have left fairly soon after he saw the evening news and realized that he was essentially the only guy left?

Obama Cinnabon Chains you say?

"I'm buying a Cinnabon... at the airport... I arrived at. You understand why that's extra disgusting, right? Because when you're at the airport you're leaving from, you can say, 'Oh, I gotta eat. I need some food, because I might be trapped in the sky forever, so I should eat right now.' But I've landed. The trip is over. I'm 20 minutes from my house where I got bananas and apples and sh*t. And I'm sitting on my luggage just f*ckin' eating a Cinnabon with a fork and knife."

Better Call Saul for a fresh hot cinnabon!

They should have a sign at the door that says "Manager Saul Goodman" and have his picture up there.

Taken out of context though, it sounds pretty nice.  Besides, as he said, the alternative was much worse.
 
2013-10-10 11:43:59 AM
To be fair, "Omaha" and "meth" do go hand in hand.
 
2013-10-10 11:48:00 AM
I want to see the marketing promos for Belize: "Come to Belize - so good your friends want to send you here"

And not to be a spoilsport, but either Hank or Gomez clearly stated another DEA agent is watching over Huell. So I doubt that Huell wasn't cut loose once both those agents went missing.

To be fair, the meth fumes on the sign are thinner than the background of meth fumes that hover over Omaha.  They're sending a positive message.
