Just watched the last episode and the Jewish aspect really bothered me too, and Google led me to this article. Not only do the Schwartzes mention the Cohens, but Walt says to them, as he notes their lavish home, that they must have a magnificent view of the Sangre de Cristo (blood of Christ) mountain range. That made me think that the use of Jewish names and stereotypes was intentional. I never had any problem with Saul Goodman, BTW, or even the lawyer in The Wire, for that matter, b/c I liked him ~ a tribute to Michael Kristoff's good acting, perhaps. But the Schwartz-Cohen-Sangre stuff in BB went beyond for me.
