Better Call Saul

Post by M99 on Thu Jan 22, 2015 4:54 am



It's getting really good reviews. Will be the best show on TV if it's half as good as Breaking Bad. Fingers crossed, work your magic Vince Gilligan. I trust all of GL Breaking Bad fans will watch this.

If the writing is as half as good as it was in BB, then this will be worth watching no doubt.

Loved the episode.

The prologue showed Saul post-BB and it seems like he got his best case scenario he told Walt back in BB - despite that he looked more miserable than ever.

I liked the BB vibe the episode had, the foreshadowing, the location, the dialogue. Jimmy is obviously not Saul at this point, he is awkward, less confident but we saw a glimpse of Saul Goodman at the end of the episode when he went back to his hustling ways.

Better Call Saul has convinced me, it's definitely on my watch list and there's a new episode tonight which is great.

Heard it's coming on Netflix. Are they uploading the episodes straight after they air?

Just watched the episodes back to back.

Spoiler:
Holy shit Tuco :bow: Outta nowhere :bow:

It was really sad to see Saul reject that offer from Nacho because of morals. That's exactly the type of stuff he eagerly does on Breaking Bad, he was a good man and wants to be one but hey, it's a dog eat dog world. This show will be about how Saul Goodman broke bad.

The writing, directing and acting were all on point. This is Vince Gilligan and Michelle McLaren keeping up to their high standards. The opening black and white scene with no dialogue was brilliant, how it showed Saul's fall from grace, paranoia, loneliness and regret. Reminded me of There Will Be Blood's opening. The leg breaking scene :bow: How Saul talked down Tuco was amazing, ""You're the worst lawyer ever!" "I just talked you down from a death sentence to six months probation. I'm the best lawyer ever." so true :bow: Got some legit laughs at some scenes too. Those college kids *bleep* a head rofl Mike Proud

Oh and that guy Nacho is Vaas from Far Cry 3 :bow:

‘Better Call Saul’ Sets Cable-TV Ratings Record

http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2015/02/10/better-call-saul-sets-cable-tv-ratings-record/



"If I'm lucky, a month from now, best case scenario, I'm managing a Cinnabon in Omaha."

That's exactly what happened to him.



No Doze did not learn his lesson:

There's more. Remember Old Joe, the junkyard owner?

Also Tuco was so GOAT this episode.

An eye for an eye. -> "YOU WANT ME TO BLIND THEM!" rofl
They run their scam with skateboards so make it that they can't skate... -> "SO I'M CUTTING THEIR LEGS OFF!" rofl
All they did was trash-talk. -> "SO I CUT THEIR TONGUES OUT! COLUMBIAN NECKTIES! I CUT THEIR THROATS AND THEN I PULL THEIR LYING TONGUES THROUGH THE SLITS!" rofl

Instead of cooking montages, now we have lawyering montages Proud

Just watched the opening 2 episodes, skateboard story/Tuco was good, rest was boring imo. Should get better though now that the intro episodes are over.

Watched the 2nd episode, Tuco Chaka

Usually prequels tend to be not be very good but Better Call Saul has started off very well. Critics who've seen the 3rd episode gave it very high ratings too.

Take off the space blanket, Chuck!

I'm not as convinced as most of you seem to be about this show, but I'm hoping it will only get better.

It had to start off slow, it's all about the origins of saul goodman. He's just brushed up against the criminal stuff for the first time. Tbh almost any new tv show nowadays starts off slow to set the tempo. Hell I remember the pilot of breaking bad being slow as hell minus the first and last few minutes to set the backdrop to the rest of the show.

Really liked those first 2 episode. Almost precisely the same pace as BB.

Got some really good stuff coming up I would imagine for this show.

Another amazing episode with some interesting twists and turns. Mike finally gets a speaking role and gives sound advice to Jimmy. Have to say, Nacho is not nearly as intimidating as Tuco but that's how it probably should be, instead he's sly and cunning.

Loved it!

Seriously best show on TV atm. That good ol Breaking Bad cinematography, them laughs, suspense (impressive being a prequel), characters, dialogue. All it's missing is a Bryan Cranston level acting performance. Bob Odenkirk has been really good though.

When Saul finds himself in the thick of criminal activity it's gonna be even more goat

Must say Odenkirk's acting in the first scene was not as convincing as Craston's when playing desperate and vulnerable but that's understandable.

However he has really taken the role in his grasp and was near perfect in other scenes.
