Better Call Saul

Post by Lord Porpington » Wed Feb 05, 2014 8:07 pm

So a spin off from Breaking Bad is in production with Saul, obviously, and Mike as the main characters, and the likes of Aaron Paul have said they're willing to do cameos.

Anyone else excited?

Not a fan of spin offs.

Started last night. Lot of BB references in it, was fairly entertaining, but I can't see a show involving just a lawyer being anywhere near the standard and excitement of BB.

I thought it was good. I enjoyed the scene where Chuck told Saul not to fly on the McGill coattails for success which was clearly talking about the show itself and Breaking Bad.

It was slow burning but I think it has potential. Also the next episode airs in the US tonight so no week-long wait yet <divax>

I'm enjoying it but after last week's episode can't help feeling they've dropped a bollock by not making the spin off about Mike.

Just wait for the next spin-off, a cop drama in the style of Homicide: Life on the Street, all about Mike. <awe>

I think Mike is a bit of a cult favourite with a lot of fans, but it probably would have been quite difficult to market and really hype up. With Saul, the material and enterntainment value is there for all to see.

Having said that, that was my favourite episode so far.

I'm annoyed at myself for believing he was actually smashed, talking jibberish and let his guard down for once. That showed me <disgrace>

:( Did anybody else gradually feel a bit underwhelmed by this series as it's gone on? Season is over now, but a lot of the original promise died down after a while I think

I was thinking the complete opposite. <scratch> Didn't really love the first half of the season but I think they've nailed every episode since the Mike one.
