I was somewhat unimpressed with the season premier.  I'm guessing they had to re-introduce Saul for those that have not seen Breaking Bad and already knew what kind of scumbag lawyer Saul is.  So for me, the episode seemed a bit slow on that front.  I guess I'll have to see where the various plot lines are going.

Got ep 1 and 2 on DVR and can't wait to view. So this is a prequel to BB, right?

 

All the critical reviewers I've read seem to think it exceeded high expectations...

I thought it was quite good. More of a dark comedy, aka Sopranos thus far than the more serious tone of BB.

It's not totally a prequel - the writers have said the timeline will be before, during, and after BB.
The time has come for a centrist political party. Rational Americans are not comfortable with extreme views to the left or to the right, and our current parties have no intentions of ever abandoning their ever increasing distance from sane, reasonable thinking.

haven't watched yet but we have it on dvr ....

 

wife wasn't impressed, didn't finish the first episode ......

 

I'll check it out eventually but have a feeling that anyone that watch BB will be disappoint no matter how much we tell ourselves its a different show .....

Yeah, I don't know how you follow a show like BB. I can't see how you top it.

 

I watched the first show so far, seemed slow to me as well.

Season 2 is looking better than Season 1 so far.

 

I especially enjoy the similarities to Fargo...regional accents and characters who border on social dysfunction. Oh yea, and the heavy-set female LEO.

Season 2 is good so far, moving a little faster and starting to get some more real tension.

That was a crazy good episode, maybe the best in the series so far.  Wow.

Finale was o.k, I was a little let down to be honest, at least for much of the episode, but the ending was pretty great.  Chuck is a total, brain damaged POS, hell bent on destroying Jimmie out of jealousy.  Mike's story is really interesting.  Seems like we are getting quite close to how these guys wind up they way they are on Breaking Bad.  Still wondering if Mike is how Tio Salamanca winds up in a wheechair dinging a bell.
