    After having watched 6 episodes of Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff, I can honestly say this is one of the best TV shows in circulation right now. The acting and writing are phenomenal and refreshing. The show takes a steady pace and gives each episode importance and not repetitive or feeling monotonous as many walking dead episodes can feel.

    The great thing is that this show is completely stand alone from Breaking Bad, but the easter eggs you find make the show all the more redeeming. If you are looking for a new TV show to watch, I wholeheartedly recommend Better Call Saul.

    It is going a bit slow right now but the show is definitely well-crafted.

    Chemistry isn't a huge part of the show, I take it? Sigh, one can't have everything I guess.

    Will watch it when they're all released, I can't wait one week like that.

    If you get to episode 6 and don't believe me, then you have no soul.

    For those who have not been watching this series, WATCH IT NOW. Season three is absolutely epic, latest episode is just where 3 and a half seasons melted down to, Beautiful showmanship.

    Haven't started season 3 yet but if you cannot tell I'm a fan. If you liked Breaking Bad, this show will not disappoint.

    I'll get to it eventually, it's on my list, but I was not in love with Breaking Bad. As a show it was fine. But it will never be my favorite.

    This show, akin to Breaking Bad, is a slow burn and has multiple seasons of set up for a fantastic pay off. This season is paying off the primary plots of season 1 and 2. But has not begun to pay off to the Saul we all know and love from Breaking Bad, it is phenomenal and can only get better as we see this character devolve into a true criminal lawyer.

    I believe it was episode two in this season that focused heavily on Mike. Minimal dialogue, so well written and produced that its my favorite episode. Absolutely fantastic writing.

    I do agree with Abdels ~two year old post. This show is magnificent and at least in my top three of best shows right now.
