Better call Saul

Season 2 Final was Monday. Season one was a tad better but all in all a ok season 2. I like jimmy alot but the cop character Mike is really cool.

I guess I should watch breaking bad because it appears better call saul is a prequel to breaking bad which I did not know. .

Yeah bro. Watch Breaking Bad. It starts a bit slow, but really picks up. Maybe a top five series all time for me.

yes, you need to watch Breaking Bad.

one of the best shows I've ever seen. my wife and i watched the entire series last year over a couple months. some nights we couldn't stop.

My dogs hang out sometimes with Bob Odenkirk's pretty little pit bull Olive.

I never watched Breaking Bad and I only saw the beginning of the first episode of Better Call Saul.

The idea of binge watching Breaking Bad almost seems like taking on a non-paying job.

we spread the 5 seasons out over a couple months. we'd watch one episode per night, sometimes 2, and a couple times three if the the 2nd episode we watched ended on a cliffhanger (like the ending to season 3).

people had told me all sorts of shit about the show, like it's too slow, the characters suck, or every episode after season 2 is the same. I am glad I didnt listen to them because they were WRONG. I am kinda glad I waited to see it until it was over though; I got to watch at my own pace.

I am almost done with Breaking Bad and it is great. I have been watching Better Call Saul and it has been pretty good. My damn dvr messed up and I watched the beginning of the finale but it won't play when I tried watching the rest. Just have to catch the rest on demand.

I think I'm just going to ask Bob to tell me what happens in both shows next time I see him with his dog at the park.

What's funny is he played an executive on How I Met Your Mother - he played the boss of the three main characters at various points in the story arch - and there was a story line that involved that character and his dog that he lost in his divorce.

This doesn't even surprise me. Dogs are the best.

So is Breaking Bad. Best show ever. No qualifiers. Don't watch meaning to binge if that's your hold up. Most people watched it week at a time over years. Maybe it's better that way.
