  1. Orang Utan

    Orang Utan razzed up on scrumpy and injustice

    Wasn't the first bit in black and white a flash forward to the aftermath of Breaking Bad?

    rutabowa LOSE IT

    yes definitely.

    It has been pretty good so far... something to do on a tuesday evening.
     
  3. Jon-of-arc

    Jon-of-arc Ransom'd, Stoopid & Roofless

    I like the character enough to defo watch the whole thing. Its far from a confirmed classic yet, but there's room for it to become that.

    SpookyFrank King of the Rhodes

    Yep, and presumably tht end of the story will be picked up again at some point.

    Orang Utan razzed up on scrumpy and injustice

    From Wiki: Set in 2002, Better Call Saul is about small-time lawyer James McGill (Bob Odenkirk), seven years before his appearance on Breaking Bad, though events during and after the original series are also explored.'
    So expect more of these flash forwards.

    Wiki also says the 2nd series has already been commissioned.

    Ted Striker Foot's on the other hand

    Apart from the facepalm of watching episode 2 before 1 (cheers for dodgy torrent file naming conventions!) it was reassuringly good.

    They could have really fucked with 'our baby' though it was all so well done and had that BB production amazingness of tricky flash forward/back and linkages, a return of the awesome montages, and just general BB 'feel' that made the reminiscing of BB and worth the entrance fee alone.

    A good job...BIS-NATCH :p

    Nacho, that's for sure.

    Maurice Picarda Actually, might as well flounce.

    I thought that new ones are Tuesdays?

    They are. The bastards.

    It's broadcast on Mondays. Maybe Netflix has to wait for the next day.

    Maurice Picarda Actually, might as well flounce.

    It would be nice for it to catch up with the present day and go in its own direction.

    So where do we think it goes from here. I assume:
    Jimmy is now going to take over their case, seeing as he knows they're guilty. Perhaps he'll get them locked away so he can split the cash with Nacho?

    neonwilderness What would Badgers do?

    I guess Mike will become involved somehow too.

    Oh hold on...

    Wasn't there a clip from Breaking Bad, from where Walt & Jesse drag Saul into the desert, and he starts off asking 'Who sent you, was it Nacho?'.

    So presumably Jimmy pisses him off massively at some point and...steals the cash?

    I don't think it was ever made explicitly clear until now, but I bet a few stoners worked it out!

    Amazed I (and mostly everyone) hadn't worked out the name!

    Hey, starfish ...probably worth spoiler tagging your explaination., because not everyone might have had the time to catch up yet, and it's a cool thing to not know off the internet. I can't watch until Wednesday, so I'm really glad I kept away from this thread yesterday :)

    oh fuck off. It's a fucking name, FFS. :rolleyes:

    Go fuck yourself, twat.

    I saw the headline "Origin of Saul's Name Revealed" on an article on Mashable yesterday and avoided it so I had a nice surprise when watching it last night. I know it's not a big spoiler, but it was a nice moment and I simply thought others might appreciate not nowing. It's not a biggie, and I did ask nicely.

    You can fuck right off though.
