Anyone else watching this? Saul was perfect on Breaking Bad because we saw him in doses, but a whole series about him I'm not too sure about.
Having said that, I'm in just because the show airs on Monday night at 10:00 and I haven't had anything good to watch on Monday night in a long time.
The opening scene of the first episode was brilliant. Even though Saul should be in jail, the fact that his once dynamic life as a fast talking attorney has turned into him living a mundane life alone while being in constant state of fear of being found out almost made me feel sorry for him.
I was pleasantly surprised to see Mike and Tuco so early on (I didn't pay attention to any of the casting spoilers while the show was in production). Perhaps I need to brush up on my Breaking Bad history, but I thought Mike was mostly connected with Gus Fring. Seeing how Breaking Bad characters will be weaved into the story is the main draw for me. I'm curious about the pace of the timeline and how soon we will see Walt and Jesse. I will be surprised if we see them in the first season. I also hope we get a Gus Fring appearance as well.
Vince Gilligan does crazy intense really, really well.
