At first glance, AXE AND GRIND appears to be a Howard (Patrick Fabian) episode. From his “peaceful” coffee pouring routine in a huge house with no love, the creators continue to try and make him a sympathetic character. Unfortunately, Howard is quickly becoming the least enjoyable part of this series. Thankfully, E6 shifts gears to focus on Kim (Rhea Seehorn). As audiences continue to watch her make bad choices, one thing is for sure – she is sadly becoming the BCS version of Walter White.
Last week, I wrote that BLACK AND BLUE was a big “sigh” of relief leading into the mid-season finale. I wish the creators gave us two episodes for E6 instead of just one. As is, I was left wanting more. But hey, that’s the point. It’s all “driving” towards the inevitable crash of Kim Wexler. If the destination is what I think it is, I will need some “tequila” (hold the stopper) to make it through. 😢
It’s available on AMC in the U.S. or Netflix internationally.
