I might have missed something obvious or be making stuff up but

In answer to your spoiler, yes though I had to check online myself so not sure if it was said/explained in the episode.

I'm gonna subscribe again for this. The trailers look good and I watched an interview with Aaron Paul saying he might have involvement.


How much involvement has Vince Gillian had or is it all his idea again ?

Lookin forward to it.

It's Vince Gilligan's project, I believe. At least, he co-wrote and directed the first episode.

Thought the first episode was brilliant, same high standard as Breaking Bad. Easily the best new thing I'm currently watching.

Yeah I really enjoyed it as well, wondering about the opening scene, was that going foward in the story ? I also thought could the opening scene having anything to do with breaking bad after it finshed but I take it this storyline has nothing to do with breaking bad at all ?

Thought the kicked in bin could have had some ref to the hand dryer walt punched and dented. Probably no link at all

They plan on showing before, during and after the Breaking Bad years, probably different seasons (series) though.

Cheers, this was probably before then in the first eps ? It's got real promise this show though I think.

Netflix having an exclusive series is a good way of getting people to subscribe, I can take or leave a film on there but like breaking bad when that was aired straight after the states , when you know it's the only place it will be shown the next week it stops you from cancelling.

Will this be on netflix in the states or on one of there cable channels ?

Well watched an interview on The Daily Show about it so watched it last night, loved it. Felt sorry for him at the beginning, it was funny in places, really good drama.
