As a Breaking Bad junkie who absolutely LOVED that show, I'm really digging this show, especially this past weeks! It's not as intense as BB (yet) but it's really good IMO. Anyone else? Thoughts?

I am!! But I haven't watched this week's episode yet. I was afraid it would be a let down after building it up in my own mind. So far the characters are great and I'm loving seeing Jimmy progress into Saul!

I enjoy this show and imagine things will get darker the longer the show goes on.

I have been meaning to watch it. One of my old high school buddies is in it. He plays the "Petty with a Prior" prosecuting attorney. Now that I have endorsements from you guys I'll have to start tuning in! smile

I am watching and loving it!! As others mentioned it is interesting to watch Jimmy become Saul. It actually shows that Saul really was a smart guy and not just a shyster. I think he was more of a victim of circumstances but it's those circumstances which are fascinating to watch! I was also a huge fan of Mike from the Breaking Bad series so it is nice to see him as well. I think they are doing a great job with this show so far.

Some people at the bank are strongly suggesting I find this on my Roku as soon as I can.

Finally caught up and watched last week's episode over the weekend. It's really getting good. Mike was my favorite character on Breaking Bad and is quickly becoming my favorite on Better Call Saul. I'm loving this show!!

I love the way the show, like breaking bad is filmed. I don't know how to explain it, but I like the look and feel of the show. I also like that the story line is not always linear and that everything is not laid out and explained clearly. You really need to think to watch it and understand it.

I had the opportunity to drive around Albuquerque last week and visit a lot of the iconic filming locations of Breaking Bad, it was kind of cool to see some of those places in person.

From what I heard it's supposed to encompass Jimmy/Saul's time before, during, and after Walter White. I think it will be VERY interesting to see all the connections made, especially Mike's connection with Gus from Breaking Bad.

Thankfully for those who've already watched BB we know Mike's going to be around on this show for pretty much the duration!

Did anyone else think that the opening scene from the very first episode where he's working at a Cinnabon or something is a flash forward to the final episode? I feel like the mastermind of Vince Gilligan would pull some ish like that. He's scary good.

Since we've already seen Tucco (unsure of the spelling), I'm sure dots will be connected soon where Jimmy gets him involved with some other stuff.

'Saul Good, Man.

I am guessing that the last episode of Better Call Saul will end at the point where he entered the story line of Breaking Bad.

Some critics are saying they are relying to heavily on the Mike character instead of exploring the relationship he has with other new characters. I think there is a great supporting cast behind this show and hope that it keeps up this pace.

I still think "Lenny" from Lenny and Squiggy (Lavern and Shirley) when I see Saul's brother but I think he's doing great in that role.

I think the first episode of BCS is really the aftermath of Walter White. BCS will skip all the Breaking Bad story line.

I think Michael McKean is doing an wonderful job as Chuck. He's an interesting character. Jimmy obviously cares for him but is tired of having to jump through the hoops. I wonder if Chuck will get better and that will somehow turn Jimmy to Saul.

I knew from BB that Mike was a dirty cop. Seeing the back story has answered a lot of questions about his character. I love Mike and hope he's in every episode. Right now he's using Jimmy. Soon Jimmy will start using Mike I think.

The die hard critics are saying that they should have left Mike's back story a mystery, kind of like Gus - you knew just enough to get the character but not too much so that you fully understood them.

I think Mike's character on BCS and BB is great.

Saul used his contact to create a new identity and he was relocated to Omaha and set up owning a Cinnabon there. He used the same guy that set up for Jesse to go to Alaska and Walt to go to New Hampshire.

In one of the last BB episodes, Saul and Walt were hiding out in the same place waiting for their new identities to be established. Saul mentioned something then about Nebraska and the Cinnabon.

The series Better Call Saul is a flashback. That's why in the first episode, Jimmy was watching his old TV commercials. He is reminiscing. (And probably despising Walt.)

I like knowing Mike's story. I would also like to know more about Gus' back story. All we really know about him is that he was Chile and is well known there, enough so that it would have created some problems if the Mexican Cartels would have killed him. So, my guess is that he had some powerful relatives or associates back in Chile. I can't tell if he left there because he needed to (similar to Michael Corleone going to Sicily), or if he just wanted to leave, perhaps because he was gay and that created some problems.
