Why do you not consider the people who made the show racist?

I really enjoyed the first episode, looking forward to the second part tonight.

Listening with Focal Elex headphones, Topping DSD Dac, SENCUN-audio tube preamp with tone control and Modded Little Dot hybrid tube amp with Voshkod 6ZH1P-EV tubes, Dual Discrete Op-Amp SS3602, and Alps Blue Velvet volume pot.

Watching in a room ensconced in velvet.

We can hope .. .. keeping in mind Saul predicted the Cinnabon gig .. Saul's in between years from broke attorney to Walter's Consigliere / Money Laundering, etc should make for a great story, clawing (or crawling) his way to a strip shopping center office and The Offices of Saul Goodman & Associates ...


Remember Francesca .. ??


The premier had a real back to the future back and forth feel .. Cinnabon being post Breaking Bad .. and the cliffhanger certainly will have most if not all back for more ..


the only way this car is worth $500 is “if there is a $300 hooker sitting in it.”


Walking Dead midseason return lead in certainly helped "Saul" ..

Today only from 5 pm to 9 pm local time, Cinnabon offers a


Cinnabon Minibon Cinnamon Roll in a Better Call Saul Themed Box


for free. And if BCS is a big, long lasting hit, that Cinnabon Box may be worth hanging on to ..

When he was driving through the residential area I kept thinking we'd see him drive by Walt's house, a lot of the places he passed looked similar but I didn't recognize the exact house. Have to figure Gilligan will fit that in sometime in a future episode.

Have you watched Mad Men? How's the pace of that show for you?

Saul was an interested charatcer but I think Gustav had the more interesting back story. I might take up watching better cal saul if they bring him working with Mike and Gustav.

I am not sure about episode 2 for the reason I couldn't imagine Tuco being rational. Drugs could explain it, but still, Jimmy negotiating his way out of that, I dunno.

Walking dead stacked with Saul gives it the momentum the show needs to catch on. Anything else on cable is going to get slayed in those two hours.

Anyone watch black sails ?

Was it the same nail salon as BB? maybe...

Wow poor twins... at least they didn't die.. negotiating a skinned alive Vs. one broken leg each? whew!

What's up with Chuck? is he "Jim's" dad? uncle? (some people claim brother)

Some people call their dad by their first name so I'm thinking that..

Can't wait for Mike to get out of that parking lot booth... this must be a side job..

I think Chuck has some sort of phobia of electronics? At first I thought it was a heart pacemaker issue, but now it looks like pure head thing.

Not sure what their ages are supposed to be on the show, but in real life you are almost correct.
