Better Call Saul

Is anyone else watching this prequel to Breaking Bad? Honestly, this is such a special series/show. Brilliantly written and acted. I honestly cannot recommend this highly enough. You will definitely get more layers from it if you have watched Breaking Bad already, but it is still highly watchable if you haven't. So very, very funny balanced with such poignancy and sadness. Brilliant! Just brilliant!

Re: Better Call Saul

I agree with your assessment, Davina!  I really loved this - looked forward to every episode and was disappointed when it was all over - thank goodness there is going to be another series!  Well written, well acted (by all the characters - loved the supporting characters), well flimed.  I felt it had quite a different tone to Breaking Bad and didn't feel like just a copy or spin-off at all.  In fact, I think I preferred it to Breaking Bad.

Re: Better Call Saul

Agreed! It definitely did not feel like a spin-off at all. I cannot wait for the next series. Fantastically written and acted. At the moment I would say it is right up there (and yes, quite possibly above) BB. The tone was definitely different and the character development is fantastic. Aww! Jimmy!

Re: Better Call Saul

Did anybody watch this last series? I keep expecting it to disappoint, but it just gets better.  I really love that things are not spelled out all the time, and that characters are not black and white.   I think it's one of the best things on TV (not that I watch loads!  But it really is outstanding).
