Pretty excited for this.  I'd watch Vince Gilligan record himself watering his lawn at this point.

Hmm...I'm definitely going to watch but I don't have high hopes. The law of averages for spin offs is pretty low.

 

If this was a mini-series or a one off type of thing I'd be more excited.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Gilligan has my trust as well. Hate being in on a series from the beginning anymore, but I will be here.

That article has me pumped for Sunday now. I don't care if its not breaking bad, I just want to be entertained by some of these characters again. Odenkirk has been funny for years and I am excited to see dead-eyed Mike Ehrmentraut again.

Don't forget that they're playing another part of the premier on Monday too.

Lemme get two claps and a Ric Flair

I am well beyond pumped for this show.  Saul is a reliably entertaining character, so a show centered on him just has to be good.

I cant wait to find little hidden gems connecting this Breaking Bad. You know there will be some Easter eggs. Like a green Pontiac Aztec in the parking lot, or they eat at Los Pollos Hermanos. Cameo where he goes to the car wash and Walter White happens to be working that day. Im sure Gilligan will put a few subtle things in there throughout.

My understanding is that tonight's show will start off with Saul's life after Breaking Bad, which will be really cool.

I wasn't particularly looking forward to a spin off. But after reading a lot this week I'm definitely going to give it a real shot.

I realize that you can't imagine someone actually enjoying something they watch for entertainment, but you aren't ruining this for me :)

I was pleasantly surprised with the premiere. You can tell they aren't going to rush into just making Breaking Bad fans happy. Only the one scene with Mike, and Tuco was relatively small/short lived in BB. I liked the pace and, so far, the back story of Saul (Jimmy). Very much so enjoyed it. Looking forward to episode 2 tonight.

I liked it.  Enjoy seeing "Jimmy" beaten down but still having his trademark gusto at times.
