I love how he kept making up excuses to torture them.

Pretty sure Tuco's grandma is the same lady who played Tony Montana's mother in 'Scarface'. Seriously, all they need is Elvira, Frank, Sosa and Tony himself to bring the major cast to the Breaking Bad universe.... could never see Al Pacino or Michelle Phifer doing that.

Not had the time to watch this all yet, but the opening scene absolutely broke my heart.  :(

Anyone else expected Nacho to say "It's all good, man" at the end of the second episode?

Admittedly I didn't have high hopes for this when I first heard about it after Breaking Bad finished.

 

But after watching the first two episodes it's really good so far.

In BB I always got the sense Mike was a career criminal who'd been in the game for ages, so I don't get the security barrier job thing at all. Why would he be doing that if he's supposed to be a seasoned professional, just strikes me as a bit strange.

Maybe we'll get to witness Mike "break bad" as well. We're kind of seeing that with Jimmy/Saul. Might be the running theme of the show.

I know I'll get hate for this cause how dare I have such an opinion. But I couldn't make it through the first episode. It was just the same exact formula as breaking bad. Which was fine for that cause there was enough dramatic action. But having a five minute intro with the same sort of music as bb and with a long stretch of boring dialog building up to nothing just doesn't work for this. For the direction they are going. Obviously they are trying to milk the BB cow for all it's worth but I wish they did something different. Not that I have any high expectations for this to begin with.

Wow, how bizarre. I never realised that. According to IMDB it's the same woman (Miriam Colon). That's a good eye on you.

 

@GlassCloud- The first episode is a bit slow paced, but it's the set up. I went away from Episode 1 unimpressed but I enjoyed it immensely and was grateful BCS wasn't a really garbage prequel as I was worried of. But two episodes in, I'm enjoying it immensely. Try giving Episode 2 a shot, it's MUCH more intense than Episode 1.

 

Also, can anyone explain the 'grounded' thing to me? I don't know if the show said it and I just missed it, but what is Chuck's condition exactly?

They have never explicitly explained any of that, but there's strong speculation that Chuck believes all electronic devices cause him pain or make him feel sick. It's called Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity. And pretty much everyone who has that is really just mentally delusional. The "space blanket" strongly hinted at Chuck having some mental issues, rather than anything medical.

 

And grounding yourself discharges the static electricity that the body carries.

 

@Rico: new episodes air in the U.S. Monday nights. Other countries may vary, but I do not think any air before the U.S. one does.

Season 2 may have Walt & Jesse in it!! http://www.unilad.co...-saul-season-2/

 

I do enjoy the back story to how Saul became a crooked lawyer but I really can't wait until we get into the events of Breaking Bad.

Well the guy who voiced Vaas in Far Cry 3 is in the show so it wouldn't surprise me if the O.G.G. was in too.

He was in Orphan Black too (I think). Great bloody show.

Just watched the first 2 episodes today. I'm kind of interested to see when the characters from Breaking Bad come, I read that Gus and Hank, along with Mike and Tuco who we've already seen, but I also read that Walter and Jesse will even be on it and that should be interesting

I'm guessing they're going to tell the Breaking Bad story from Saul's angle. So we'll see the parts where Saul's story merges with Walter's, and then when Saul's story breaks away and he has to move away. At which I'd love to see Jesse at some point post-Breaking Bad. A lot of people wanted to see how he lived after Walter saved him, and this is the chance. Although, I doubt it'll happen until late in the series.

Yeah, Breaking Bad took place from September 2009 to September 2011. Better Call Saul starts in 2002, so we've got a ways to go until any real possibility of a Walt/Jesse appearance.

The entire series takes exactly 2 years which is pretty mind-blowing for me, considering how from the Pilot to the 4th episode of Season 5 is only a year, and the rest is another one year.

The less of the primary BB characters we see the better. I wanna see them expand the secondary characters and background atmosphere of the BB world.
