Better Call Saul

Postby K » 07 Apr 2015, 22:40

If there's a thread I can't find it.

This show has more than surpassed expectations. I expected a goofball comedy, but instead got one of the best TV shows ever made. With the end of series one I am bereft. I don't want to post spoilers but will add a disclaimer if that's the way we find ourselves going.

Anyone else a fan?

I watched the first six and thought they were fantastic. My wife liked the one episode she saw that she started binge-watching Breaking Bad, so I am holding off on finishing the season as she will want to join me.

I am up to date and my verdict is that the show is good but Breaking Bad was better. It is a good lawyer show but there are plenty of those but a high school science teacher meth cook is a one of a kind thus far. And the brother, do you really buy his malady?
I love you.

So when netflick make a show, it's solely for netflick right? They won't sell it around the world to different TV stations, even after a period of time when it's fully shown on netflick?

You're in for a treat. Ep. 7, 8 and 9 were fantastic. Easily as good as 'Five-o' which focused on Mike

Utterly fantastic, loved it to bits.

Slippin' Jimmy is slowly commencing his transition from generally straight lawyer to the Saul Goodman we know & love from Breaking Bad and now we are starting to see why.

Btw, loved how all the episode titles ended with words finishing in an 'o' - apart from the one titled 'Alpine Shepherd Boy'

Which was, apparently, the only one not written by a former writer of Breaking Bad.

netflix don't make the show, AMC do. Suspect they got first dibs on the European broadcasting rights for BCS as a result of picking up BB when terrestrial channels in the UK stopped showing it after season 2 or 3.

Neither had I! And it laid a misconception to waste, that Americans aren't funny! It's one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

*Tiny spoliers*

Great first episode. The fact that we have a scene set in the present day means we even have a touch of uncertainty about how things will turn out.

I mean, we know we get to Breaking Bad territory in the main scenes, but will we see more Cinnabob?


And that Humvee - jeez, man, listen to Mike. It will not end well.

Not the most thrill-a-minute episode but I liked it. It sets up the scene for what is about to happen.

And they're gonna keep the BB references coming fast, furious & hilarious. This week we got cameos from Don Eladio's favorite tequila, Zafiro Anejo, and the return of KEN WINS, the loudmouth stockbroker who pissed off Walter White so much, Walter blew up his car.

Very stoked for this season.

Right after the episode ended I saw a Facebook page saying "you have been kidnapped and the gang from the last TV show you watched is coming to rescue you." With Mike Ehrmantraut on the job, plus Saul to fast-talk the bad guys, and Kim Wexler to charm them, I feel completely confident. I can't think of any fictional character I would rather have coming to help me out than Mike, except maybe Superman.
