I kind of felt the same way with Breaking Bad. First couple seasons were good but it was a slow build to the final 3 seasons which were epic.

I’m nervous that the writers wrote themselves into a corner with how amazing they wrote Jimmy/Saul. I just can’t see how they’re going to bridge the two shows and have us believe that Jimmy becomes the Saul we see in Breaking Bad

Easily the best show on TV right now.. In many places i feel its better than BrBa just because the writers, actors everyone has matured and learnt a lot.. The characterization of every single person is just so deep and amazing

I had the strangest dream last night, Jeremy was reviewing BCS but it was a weird Sci-Fi party show and we was talking about how the aliens were his least favorite part, but everything else was great.

I want to see Jack’s Gang and Vamonos Pest in Season 6 somehow they were the most evil villains in Breaking Bad.

Lalo is like Negan, that very charismatic villain that you love to watch yet fear as they could just wipe you out on a whim. Gus is a supreme villain that is just terrifying because he is so cold and calculating. My favorite character of the show is more and more becoming Nacho. I think nearly every character deserves some mad props though. Even Howard has these layers.

Better call Saul is a much different show than Breaking Bad, but it is so fire and much better written with overall better characters to be honest, which is also why I still enjoyed seasons 1 and 2 practically as much as seasons 3, 4, and 5.

This show is amazingly horrible. Compete trash since day one and absolutely boring. They try to ride on the coattails of the success on Breaking Bad and the characters from that show and it just didn't work. Any suspenseful part with characters from Breaking Bad are basically ruined in Better Call Saul. Like parts that include Mike. It's not very suspenseful when you know he's not going to die because he's alive and well in Breaking Bad. And nobody really cares about Jimmy McGill. The name of the show is Better Call Saul. People want to see Saul Goodman. Not spend three seasons watching bulshit with Jimmy McGill. On top of that, the show is filled with non important Side characters who add basically nothing to the story at all. It's just filler to kill time because they couldn't come up with anything decent to actually put in the show. Year after year the ratings have decreased for this piece of s*** program and now it's finally getting canceled. I think they were just being nice and let the people finish the show the way they wanted to, on a failing note. Breaking Bad was at least decent. This follow-up is just complete trash in every way possible. They should have canceled after season 2 and save themselves the embarrassment of making such a horrible product.

Spoiler: My favourite character is Mike Ehrmantraut. Really feel bad for him, the way he lost his son, was trying to support his son's wife and daughter and then later how in BB he dies. He had a moral code. The way he spoke for Nacho to Gus and Gus himself had to convince him to join his side. Also, not to forget, Mike kicks ass in what he does.

Fun fact: Lalo and Natcho were both mentioned by Saul in his first appearance in Breaking Bad. When Walter and Jesse kidnap him, Saul thinks it's the cartel and yells out; "It wasn't me it was Ignatcio! (Natchos real name). Saul also says that he's "Soy amigo del cartel" (what Lalo calls him) and asks Walt and Jesse if it was Lalo that sent them and get relieved when they say no.

I might be the only one but while I love Breaking Bad, I think Better Call Saul is a better show. I just think it’s 100% consistent with not a single bad episode or low moment.

Right on the nail to say Kim Wexler is the real tragedy of the show. But as the latest finale implied, it might turn out that Kim's unraveling (realizing that she fully accepts her morally compromised tendency) may be the last straw for Jimmy to swing farther astray rather than Jimmy influencing Kim (because as we saw, Jimmy is still Jimmy at the end of S5)

I completely agree about the first couple seasons. 100%. I dont think it's our fault as the viewer that it took us a bit to really get into it either. In fact, i found the exact opposite to be true. I feel like if we didnt already care too much about these characters and weren't already set up to want to see Saul's story, we wouldn't have been too invested in the show itself for the first two seasons. Its very very slow. Its a CHARACTER driven show, not so much plot driven. I think that would've caused problems if the show had to stand on its own. Season 3-present are fantastic, and that's because it becomes more plot driven. Just my opinion though.

Yes, BB is faster paced with more action. However, this show has better more complex characters than BB. As in, you could give any of these supporting characters their own show and it would work, unlike most of the BB supporting characters.

Better show than Breaking Bad because of the characters. Even the characters that were in that show and are now in BCS are more developed and interesting

Better Call Saul is AMAZING. The first time I watched I was kind of bummed after BB ended so I didn't care that much about the show... but then I re-watched and it was like a NEW AND FANTASTIC WORLD. Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould are so fuckin' good at writing characters and oh man... the dessert episode was perfect!!!!! :')

Better Call Saul is the perfect complementary part to Breaking Bad. Breaking Bad has the best original idea "how truly domesticated bitter insignificant man changes to scarface" and it has the perfect leading couple with Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. It's also great because anyone can enjoy it. But I have to say, after rewatching Better Caul Saul for couple of times and really getting what that show is about, the writing on BCS is better. One of the most important things on BCS is that Jimmy is a black sheep of the family, but he is the innocent on. It's his totally useless father to blame and also his brother that couldn't see his father as the bad guy, so he started to blame Jimmy. Chuck was also jealous of Jimmy. And Jimmy only wanted the approval of his brother, all the way up till he became Saul Goodman. He needed that from his brother as he was the man of the house, in a way the father figure, because looking up to loser like their dad is impossible. I think I know what season 6 is going to bring, and by the end of BCS I think most understand why this show is the perfect complementary part to Breaking Bad. Hint, it's not going to be tragedy ;)

I don't live in the US and just have Netflix and there is only the first three seasons there, heard a lot of good things about the next seasons and it is kind of hard to not watch the show by other means 😏, but out of respect to the creative team behind Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad I will wait!

I hope that better call Saul runs into breaking bad, because when Walt and Jesse take Saul into the desert he says “it was Ignacio (nacho)” and “did lalo send you?” Meaning lalo is still alive in breaking bad so maybe (like every other antagonist) he could die. This would overlap the timelines but things would still make sense because nachos story doesn’t interfere with Walt and jesses

What I love about Better Call Saul is just the sheer depth of each character. We know exactly who Jimmy, Kim, Mike, Gus and Nacho are now. Their characters have been portrayed with so much depth and ingenuinity that it explains/justifies their actions in BCS and Breaking Bad perfectly.
Louis 5 månader sedan
I personally think that they wont go with the "Kim was around and we never saw her route" Vince dosen't like lose ends and I think that ending the show with that wouldn't sit right with him.

Not gonna lie, the first couple seasons had me curious, but I dropped off watching it until about a month ago, and in that time i caught all way back up and I'm glad I did. I was not expecting it to be as quality as Breaking Bad.

The one thing that really bothers me is that every time the show makes it seems like Jimmy is finally heading into being Saul for good, 3 episodes into the next season, he’s Mr. Nice guy again. They keep intending to develop his character into being immoral but then the writers undo that character development to hold it off longer. All this to say, it’s annoying that by the final season of Better Call Saul, we won’t have had a full season of him being just Saul Goodman fully into the criminal world. Hell, by the end of season 5, Kim is more of the hustler character and immoral than he is. I just want to see the character of Saul Goodman as his final form already

Kim is no angel. She's got some childhood shit that Slippin Jimmy merely facilitates coming to the fore'. Jimmy doesn't cause her to have an orgasmic euphoria from running cons, he doesn't even anticipate it. He actually expects she is going to be feeling guilty and fed up.

I mean, we do know how violent the Salamanca family can be but they're kinda meat heads. Put a good brain on their shoulders like in Lalo's case and it makes sense he could outsmart the assassins. He did have the home advantage too.

To be fair... Jimmy is NOT the one who is pulling Kim into his influence... he is actually asking if she wants in, or even asks her to leave... but she keeps coming back. Kim always had a Slippin' Kimmy or darkside to her that keeps manifesting along the way... to the point we see she is not more Kim Goodman than Saul is at the end of season 5
