I did not think much of last nights episode. I am really hoping I like the next few.

Vince Gilligan knows exactly where he's
going with this. Just like in BB, he has it
all on an outline. I think BB is one of the
top 5 shows ever. But it had moments
that made me hit mute, and on a 2nd
and 3rd viewings, hit FF.

Any scene with his witch of a wife, or
their teenage kid. Fingers on a blackboard.
Any scene with the shoplifter sister,
god she was awful. Any long scene with
Jessie's empty headed drug buddies.
The entire episode with the fly. There
are others if I wanted to think about it.

We already know how the series ends, unless
Vince wants to do something dumb, like
an enemy finds Saul and wastes him. So they
have a lot of character development to do,
which takes time.

Maybe Gilligan is taking his time explaining things, but what's the deal with the brother? Why the space blanket? Why is he afraid of sunlight or going outdoors?

That's Gilligan's trademark. He explains as
it goes along. He could even bring back
Walter White, scenes that were never on
BB. That would be pretty cool.

The actor who plays the brother is one of
the most sought after on TV. He's never
been out of work since he played Lenny
of Lenny and Squiggy fame on Laverne
and Shirley.

I don't know anyone besides myself that was disappointed in the show. I guess I may have had inflated expectations. I will give season 2 a chance but I am skeptical.

Made myself watch just one episode last night. Started slow, but so did BB. I keep reminding myself even though it is a prequel it is Saul's story and will be different. One odd thing is the cinematography is even different. The look and feel is just so different, not bad just weird.

I enjoyed the 1st season. They're trying to show
how Saul ended up being who he became. They
need to do this, he was just a miner character
in BB.
