    Better Call Saul



    The trials and tribulations of criminal lawyer, Saul Goodman, in the time leading up to establishing his strip-mall law office in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
    Highly recommended IMO

    Glad someone created a thread for this one. I'll quote a post I made on another discussion:

    On its own, I think people may understandably find it slow. Then again, that's exactly what happened with the first season of Breaking Bad - it wasn't until after season 2 that it really took flight.
    Not sure what's up with the last episode, though. He suddenly breaks down after getting a bunch of "B" balls at the bingo (which probably wouldn't happen if the script didn't ask for it)... then returns to his hometown and somehow goes back to scamming for a week?

    Alright, what Chuck had just done and said to him was not nice. But I feel that could have been done a bit better.

    I don't think the bingo was related, it was just that kind of moment where you start to think: you know what! Fuck it. Fuck it all. I don't even care anymore.

    Sometimes people tend to prove others right that way, despite the fact they were wrong.

    Agreed it wasn't the best ever, but I could imagine how he felt and why stuff happened.

    I never really liked Breaking Bad, so I doubt I'll enjoy this one!

    I always thought that Breaking Bad was good, but just after the first two seasons. Considering that Vince Gilligan, the creator of BBad, is one of the two creators of Better Call Saul, I think the TV series are very much alike. But Bob Odenkirk, Saul Goodman in BBad, plays other character in Better Call SAUL? From what I've read, Better Call Saul doesn't seem very attractive and I prefer to try Vikings first. Or House of Cards...

    Saul Goodman in BBad, plays other character in Better Call SAUL?
    no, it plays the same character but until the events of breaking bad , in the period when it was at first in law area and his name was Jimmy McGill

    well the story of Better Call Saul is not a bad one ,each episode gives you a drop of plot from what will/could happen and it keep's you watching,but after a time ,thinking clear , without drinking the Breaking Bad Juice you come to realise that after 10 episodes not much happend with Jimmy McGill and the show was a lil bit saved from being to booring using Mike Ehrmantraut as the second plot character ....the story is very well narrated but is like that books that you find them over the internet (4 Dummies books) when you write 300 pages for something that you can put in 100 pages...maybe because they want to drain the pipe with more than 1 or two seasons until the timeline will reach breaking bad events and it's all over or mostly over

    Remember when Badger got busted for trying to sell meth to an undercover cop? By recommendation of Jesse and co., Walt turns to Saul, and at some point in conversation the latter tells him his real name is McGill and he "changed" it to appeal to Jewish clients.

    True. After the very last scene in the season finale, I am highly eager to see how Jimmy turns into Saul Goodman, but we'll have to wait for that.

    Breaking bad is an amazing show imho, but you just can't binge it. It's really good if you followed it with one ep a week (as it aired). If you binge it, you easily overdosed and it got boring after a bit. I'm guessing that's what happened to you
