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.

I've only had time to sit and watch the first of the two episodes so far, but what I've seen is fantastic. I figured this show would either be a home run or a complete whiff, and the first episode is very promising. Loved the ending reveal, I can't wait to watch episode 2 tonight and see where this goes.

Typical Laz post, really!

But I can't say I'm super excited for this (if I was I'd download it illegally). But definitely interested. Saul was always a great character on Breaking Bad I thought. Provided good levity and without him we wouldn't have had Huell or whoever it was Bill Burr played.

Maybe Laz would have preferred this spinoff instead:

It's not borderline trollish. He IS being a troll! Nothing new for Lazzy. But, I suppose "victory" has been achieved because here we are pointing out his foibles.

I've enjoyed the first two episodes of Saul even though I only occasionally watched BB. I'm sure at some point, I'll have to go back and binge watch BB to catch up on all of it.


I think Bob Odenkirk is very funny. I remember seeing him for the first time on the HBO show, Mr. Show, with David Cross. They were hilarious.

Can't really say there's a point to posting when I haven't got anything discussion-worthy to say so that part's on me, but couldn't I have come in here out of curiosity? I thought the character was so played out in Breaking Bad and the least likely to be able to carry a spin off for that reason. so yeah I'm sort of curious how that could be a show. By your logic, the only people who can click on a thread have to already be fans? The app must have cut that part of the thread title off.

Also, 2 episodes of parks & rec = not enough for a real opinion. 2 episodes of better call Saul = you're a fan?
