    Cool...about time.

    But to be honest the link at the end to the 12 Monkeys series seemed better. :oops:

    Could be epic or could be disaster. Worth a try.

    Worth a look.

    Lucky Netflix manages to get a stay of execution, as we were going to give it the chop.

    I wanted to binge watch these. Netflix is dragging it out once a week.

    I though the first episode was unremarkable.

    That would be because it is being shown weekly on AMC in the States.

    2 ep premiere tho the 2nd was just on tonight, netflix tonight in UK and is torrented now

    opening was brutal, then the bit in the court room :D

    whats with his brother? cant be around electricity? not heard of that before

    tuco looking noticeably older than first appearance in BB but ill ignore that, i guess this is gonna explain how he became a "friend" of the cartel as he says to walt + jesse when they kidnap him

    Just seen first episode it's ok lots actors from BB. Will Jessie be in this show to?

    I think his brother is losing his faculties but doesn't want to admit it & is now looking to alternative to modern medicine hence the Finnish thing and the electricity.

    I enjoyed it, it'll take time to hit it's stride...

    The best bit was the long b&w opening.

    Just watched the first one. A promising start for a daunting spin-off imo...

    Yes - the second episode is better and very promising.

    Hmm, episode 2 demonstrated some potential flaws for me. Too much self referencing Breaking Bad characters and situations will just make a trainspotters paradise of the show if they allow it to go too far. The desert scene was a bit Breaking Bad lite, touched too much on the comedy side of things to be taken too seriously....although, this show is already stretching the realms of reality, so maybe it will veer towards that. I hope not, the previews suggested it would be much more dark drama than comedy...which I hope it is.

    Enjoying so far, but I have fears I might lose interest if it doesn't forge a life of it's own beyond Breaking Bad....
     
  27. The Boy

    The Boy danny la rouge is probably wrong.

    I haven't rewatched, but i seem to remember that Breaking Bad wasn't nearly as dark at the beginning than even the second and third seasons. I expect it's quite deliberate.

    Really enjoyed it. I was worried it would go pure comedy and fail to hit the mark but it hasn't. Is looking like a slow burner that will find is feet nicely :)

    loved it!
    need some easy viewing as Walking Dead is getting too grim...

    I'm not sure why Tuco's henchman wants to pay Saul to find out where the money is. Can't they just go round and torture it out of them? that's what i would if i was an evil criminal mastermind.

    shame there's only 2 episodes up. i thought netflix just spunked all the episodes out at once?
