Better Call Saul - hell yeah

I've watched the opening two minutes
And I can tell this is going to be solid.

Lightning can strike twice.

First episode had an interesting pace structure. It was slow ... really slow, for the first 40 minutes (not a criticism here, as it seemed appropriate), and then suddenly a shit ton of stuff was happening in the last ten. And I definitely did not see that ending coming, though some people apparently did.

It's off to a good start. I'm not sure I was really expecting anything (although, it was probably not going to be rubbish). Love the cinematography as usual... it's like we never left New Mexico.

Yessss. I'm in on this. Really happy with the first two episodes, especially the Tuco stuff. That scene out in the desert was so very Breaking Bad-esque and it made me happy.

And I do think Odenkirk is good enough to pull this off.

Saul didn't appear on Breaking Bad until after Tuco was killed, right? Did Saul even know that Walt had worked with Tuco?

I will never watch this. Pathetic that Gilligan had to go back to the well, and Odenkirk was my least favorite part of BB and one of the reasons I never took the show very seriously.

This show has started incredibly promisingly. Amazing television already. I worry that it will lose some of the impact that BB had as it was paced so well, and just kept escalating right through. That obviously can't happen the way this has started, but man, my admittedly low expectations have been destroyed. Very excited to see more.

i thought this spin off was a joke. sounded like a horrible idea to me, didn't that character overstay his welcome after 2 episodes?

What purpose does it serve to go in to a thread about a TV show you've never seen to tell people you think the concept is stupid?

I think what I've seen of Parks and Rec isn't very funny at all, but I feel no need to go into that thread and post that thought because a) I've only ever seen 2 or 3 episodes and b) it's a thread for fans of the show and waltzing in and saying "lol ur show sux" (without having seen any more than 1% of it) contributes nothing to the discussion and just annoys people.

I dunno, not trying to be a dick here but it seems borderline troll-ish to me.
