I'm maybe the world's biggest breaking bad fan and I find this show to be incredibly underwhelming. I'm still VERY optimistic though.

I kinda like Saul more than bb.

We're I felt that bb was a show of a decent man gone bad. But you ultimately find out he was an asshole all along. Saul is a guy who is struggling to do good but his nature won't let him. He's constantly at war with himself. Which is why I find him a more interesting.

I only really liked the Mike parts last year. Everything else bored me for the most part. I have to watch nonetheless since Breaking Bad is my favorite show. I hope I'll like this season more since we'll have Gus and Jimmy will be more turning into Saul, and hopefully Jimmy and Mike's story will be more tied together instead of feeling so separate.

So I guess it's pretty much confirmed that the "Don't" message came from Gus himself, right?

Yes, although probably not physically delivered by him.

That's because you want this show to be Breaking Bad and isn't trying to be.

Absolutely worth it.

I think the only Breaking Bad fans who are put off by Better Call Saul are the ones who only watched BB for the "HOLY SHIT" moments. I think some are coming into this show straight off of Breaking Bad Season 5 expecting explosive events and people getting shot after every commercial break, and that expectation not being met dismays them.

It's only two seasons in but I'm nearly ready to call BCS the equal of BB.

AMC usually releases some kind of recap video when we get closer to the new season, I'll keep you updated if it releases. As alternative, Vulture and A|V Club have some recent written recaps.

I think BB did a good job of if you noticed things letting you realize he never was a good guy (I hated him from the start honestly and it was a bunch of small things that kinda gave you a glimpse of who he really was. BB to me was a guy who was able to look honest and what happens when he is allowed to truly be himself).

I honestly like BCS better for a shallow reason, I like Saul where as I never liked Walter. BB was weird for me that I liked it despite hating the protagonist (I usually can't stand watching something if the main character is some one I hate. I think it helps though that BB never tries to pretend you should like him... that really sets me off when they try to set the guy off as good or even good but flawed and I just outright hate him and think he's awful). Shit, I was cheering on Gus even though Gus was evil as well, I found him more likable (and I'm excited he's going to be in this season).

Surprisingly one of the best things on TV. I get that it's a slow burn show, but it never really feels slow to me; the character writing is too good and too easy to get engrossed in for me to ever wonder if things are moving along quickly enough or not. It's one of those shows, like Mad Men or Boardwalk Empire, where it could just be people talking for an hour with zero plot, and I'd have no problem with that.

Truth is overflowing from this post.

And hell yes, watch this if you liked Breaking Bad. It's different, but has the same black comedy sense of humor and great writing and great acting. I actually like it more than BB.

Although S2 started off with a pretty mellow (and great) character-focused episode.

The cold open will likely be another Omaha segment because it's a season premier.
