Default Better Call Saul

Didn't see a thread on this new show specifically, so I am starting this one so we can talk about what we like or don't like about it. Premieres tonight at 10pm ET on AMC. For those who are not familiar with the show Breaking Bad starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, this is a prequel to that show which was a huge hit and won many awards. It is based on a lawyer, shady lawyer from the original series Breaking Bad.

Here's to hoping this new spinoff prequel is all we hope it to be.

I think this will still have its fair share of drama. Breaking Bad had some humor despite being based around something very dark. This will probably have more of the same Saul humor we're used to, but still include dark characters around him.

I think this is really good so far, also have to think that the first 5 minutes of the show is what and where he is after the events of BrBa.

It seems the tone of this show is like the first two seasons of Breaking Bad.

I am not seeing a lot of out and out comedy but a lot of drama and table setting.

I like it, don't get me wrong.

They may be doing it this way so that Breaking Bad fans will not suffer tonal dissonance while transitioning to this show. It may become lighter as the episodes continue.

It would benefit from a little more lightheartedness but only a little more. As McGill becomes Saul and becomes more savy and morally corrupt, it will really help the show.

How far into the past are we? It looks like a few years after the turn of the century.

Yeh it looks as if this was about 5-6 seasons before BrBa, so I would say this show will go about that length. I have to say though, I really like it.

Speaking of, for those who think tomorrow night is just a rerun of this episode, it is actually an airing of the second episode. So, looking forward to tomorrow night as a bonus!
