I agree, that bit in the court with the 3 lads was so funny the way he walks up with the video and doesn't say a word after Saul.

Will next week only be half an hour ? I read someone saying it was a double eps the first one.

No, they're an hour long (well, about 45 mins without adverts)

It is a double ep, the first one should be on there now. Were being shown on consecutive nights.

yes really liked the court scene and those lads, wasn't expecting it

breaking bad spoiler :



i liked that the scene was in black and white, symbolising the future, but the reflection of the old adverts on the video on the tv were in colour, symbolising the past.

love the opening episode, hoping to catch the second tonight. i'll probably have to watch them both again with the missus, but it wont be a chore.

First two episodes were flippin' awesome - I'm sold.

I was a little on the fence as to whether this show would sustain my interest [contentious] Saul was never my favourite character to begin with [/contentious] but they've found a great balance of pathos and humour coupled with the de rigueur visual metaphors and cinematography we've come to expect from those involved with Breaking Bad that made it such a compelling show to watch.

Looking forward to seeing how this show pans out.

Great few episodes to start off with



That is why it's always best to have watched BB first.

For some reason I'd got in my head this would be more comedy than drama, but the tone isn't that different from BB. The first two episodes have been really promising - far better than I expected it to be.

I'm not watching until it's done. I don't watch TV week to week anymore unless it's something throwaway I'm not that bothered about.

Brilliant so far. It just oozes class. The first episode was quite slow but every minute is engaging. I feel like I should be looking out for everything as I bet every little word, scene, character, object has meaning the same way they did in Breaking Bad. Bob Odenkirk is fantastic. I can't see anyone playing that role as well as he does. Only one small thing...

Yeah, got the impression we were seeing a younger, more naive version of that particular character. Notice he was listening to advice and guidance from others too.

Superb so far - not sure how a guy with Mike's talents is reduced to validating parking tickets but maybe more will be revealed.

I did wonder, I guess it'll all play out. Maybe he's keeping an eye on someone

Watched the second one tonight , it's great. Missed tooko and was made up he had a decent part.

I keep reading into things to like when tooko is with his other two guys from breaking bad.
