It’s 11:13 pm and I want to go to sleep. However, there is this pull on my brain that says that if I don’t write this right now I will never write it and it’s one of my better thoughts. Unfortunately unless you have watched Better Call Saul’s 1st season, and then tonight’s 2nd season opener, it will be lost on you. Taking into consideration that my audience is small to begin with and then we have to segment it further, we are realistically dealing with 0 people who will truly like this post.
Rhea Seehorn plays Kim Wexler in Better Call Saul. Better Call Saul is a followup to Saul Goodman’s character in Breaking Bad. It’s created by Vince Gilligan, the same producer and director, and it’s not as hard as Breaking Bad but it’s as smart. It’s an elevated TV show and I watch a good amount of TV shows. In normal scenario’s I wouldn’t create posts with Rhea Seehorn as my main attraction because there wouldn’t be a reason to. However, in order to reveal the greatness of this show, I have to pick an off character who I’m drawn to because of the show’s quality.
Talking Saul (the same idea as Talking Dead) followed the episode and I’m currently writing this as Bob Odenkirk, Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould, and Rhea Seehorn are live talking to Chris Hardwick. Initially I find the follow up show as a complete ratings draw with little content but when you have these guys on that isn’t the case. Bob Odenkirk is forming legendary status in my mind and Vince Gilligan already has with Breaking Bad. I enjoy watching these masters at their trade talking, as Bobo says, off the cuff.
To conclude my drooling of this show I’ll end on Rhea Seehorn and the inspiration of this post. Rhea is a beautiful woman who I’m raising to a 10 out of 10 because of her interaction with this show. This concept is what I wanted to write about the entire post but got caught up in previous paragraphs. If I saw Kim on the street I’m going to think she’s just another pretty girl. However, once she’s a part of this brilliant show and her acting complements Odenkirk’s so wonderfully, I fall in love with the character. She’s gorgeous but it isn’t her physical appearance which I gravitate to. I’m overwhelmed by her interaction with Saul in the show. This is what I find fascinating. I’ve seen nothing Rhea has ever been in before and she becomes this enchanted character because I enjoy the show so much. My point is that if Rhea Seahorn is in another show, I pass her over. However I’ve taken the time to write 460 words about her work in Better Call Saul. The quality of the show makes you love the characters. That is how you know it’s a good show.
