    Everyone involved is absolutely awesome.

    This is going to be GREAT.

    Excellent teaser btw, lol.

    The teaser wasn't much, but it's enough to give me hope. I feel like this show has to walk on a very fine line between very awesome and very awful, but those 10 seconds are at least enough to keep me looking forward too it.

    Saul is a great character, and I assume he had countless clients before Walt and Pinkman. I think this could be really good.

    Honestly though, this is so far removed from the main story of Breaking Bad, it has absolutely no capacity to mess with the story arc. This isn't The Phantom Menace... it's more like Prometheus... except I hope it's going to be better than Prometheus.

    This show is going to encompass events before, during and after Breaking Bad. There is little to no involvement with the storyline in BrBa with either Walt or Jesse so yeah. This is a true spin-off true to it's own.

    I welcome it and will love it as I enjoyed the character. Odenkirk is a good comedian to me so of course I'll watch.

    I don't want it to drag on and last too long as it will dilute the potency of the BrBa universe though if it overstays its welcome. 3 seasons is the max I hope. Though, I'm sure Gilligan will cut it off at the point he wants to as he did with BrBa.

    I think it could go as long as BB did, provided it's good enough to just last the first season.

    Well it's already been renewed for a second season already so hopefully they didn't shoot themselves in the foot.

    Season One - 7 episodes
    Season Two - 10 episodes

    I've missed this universe and the BrBa production crew so much.

    Currently watching it now.

    I love his office. No wonder he loved that manicure salon so much.

    That last few seconds was awesome. Really reminded me of watching Breaking Bad. The can't freaking wait until the next episode feeling that so few other shows can really pull off.

    Oh my cow I am so excite right now. D/Ling seems to be at a snails pace.

    EDIT- That was great. I'm not sure if my BB nostalgia is making the show seem better than it actually is, but time will tell.

    Tonight's episode is just as strong, if not better than the pilot. Least tonight we watched his old familiar display of talking out of his ass.

    Spoiler: It was pretty cool to see No-Doze and Gonzo with Tuco tonight, not to mention being on pins and needles trying to see how he ended up getting out of it alive, obviously.

    First two episodes were great, especially the latter. It's an excellent mix of drama and comedy and keeps the aesthetic of Breaking Bad while also maintaining it's own identity. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season.

    Suprisingly good. Too much talking in the desert. Looking forward to the rest.

    Tonight's episode wasn't quite as good as the first 2 but still great, I'm really glad we got to see a bit more of Mike and we know now that Jimmy was actually a criminal before he became a criminal lawyer.
