I'm really excited for this show. I hope it lives up to its name.

For a television show, Breaking Bad was perfectly conceived and executed.

Until otherwise, I wholeheartedly trust Vince Gilligan will do the same with Better Call Saul.

I agree and that's why I'm so excited to see it. Saul Goodman was my favorite character on Breaking Bad.

I'm not expecting it to be nearly as amazing as Breaking Bad, but I still expect it to be rather good and I look forward to seeing it. It has the same writers, directors, and the majority of the production crew from Breaking Bad so I'm still excited.

Rumour has it that there will be cameos from the cast of BB. Aside from Saul of couse. From what I've heard,  the story in Better Call Saul happens a few years before the BB events, and it will have a lighter approach than the story of Waltee White.

I'm not expecting Breaking Bad levels of awesomeness here but I think this will be a very good show. I just hope viewers don't think it will be another Breaking Bad and give the show a chance when it doesn't turn out that way.

You have to give it a chance, even if the first season disappoints on some levels.

Look at Star Trek: The Next Generation. It took three seasons to become its own show.

Anyway, I have faith in Vince Gilligan. I really don't think he would undertake Better Call Saul without being confident it can stand on its own.

Even Breaking Bad took time to get used to. The first season is a bit slow, and only on the second half you´re dragged into the story.

I loved the premise of Breaking Bad from the very start. My point is the Breaking Bad universe is already defined and fans of the show have their own expectations, prejudices and standards set before watching an episode of Better Call Saul.

The premiere slowly built, but that was mostly just to inform us, but the ending was a huge payoff. I'm very excited for next week's episode.

I thought it was very good. Did it build slowly? Yes. And that's a good thing. A lot of seeds are planted and questions raised. Overall, a satisifying beginning.

:goodone:

If it wasn't for Netflix I would have probably never watched the whole series. I didn't care much for the first season.

I really liked the first two episodes and I like the way they're incorporating characters from BB into it.
Spoiler

So far I'm not disappointed at all.

The second episode was very satisfying. I really wasn't expecting it to be of this quality so soon.

I was expecting to have to wait 5-6 episodes for the show to get interesting. It blew me away last night.

The scene with Tuco in the desert was gold.

Man...I REALLY need to get Netflix. It´s available in Brazil already, but there´s this old DVD rental place in my neighborhood, and I have this weird fetish of going over there to select which movie to rent, just like old times. But it´s about time I do something about it!!!
