If you didn't see Breaking Bad, the final scene of last night's episode would have almost no meaning.

Re: Better Call Saul (AMC)

I would say definitely not, Hodgepodge! It's enjoyable on it's own merits, it's a prequel- and all you'll miss are little inconsequential nuggets of Breaking Bad mythology, such as the one I just mentioned. All of these events take place years before the Breaking Bad story begins.

Hmm, that's a hard question to answer because we haven't seen much of the show yet. It's by the same people who created Breaking Bad, which was really amazingly done, so I have faith that it will be well done enough to stand on its own.

Hodge, you MUST drop all of your other TV watching and watch BB if you haven't seen it yet. Start tonight, you will thank me.

So, to answer your question, I think that you can probably watch this without knowing about Breaking Bad and love it. You won't get all of the references and connections, but my guess is that it will still be really good even without knowing all of that.

Re: Better Call Saul (AMC)

Well, as I mentioned in the, "I've Never Seen an Episode" thread, Breaking Bad is one of the many series, I've never seen. As a matter of fact, Breaking Bad, brought about that thread.

I may give it a try.

Re: Better Call Saul (AMC)

If there's any show that I recommend you watch, that would be the one. Give it a few hours of your time and give it a whirl. Seriously. Do it.

If there's anyone that missed last night's episode, it's being repeated tonight before the second part.

Re: Better Call Saul (AMC)

I'd give the first part a 'B'. There's definitely a lot of room for improvement. Can't say the character reveal at the end excited me.

It's actually a pretty daunting task to make this story interesting when we know where it ultimately goes.

Well FitLoL, because its you, I'll give this one a looksee. I'll report back.

But, Breaking Bad, is another story. I'm so far behind in my normal tv watching, I will probably never get to it.
