    Better Call Saul!

    Any other Breaking Bad fans out there who are excited about the pilot of its eagerly awaited spinoff on Sun/Mon? It has gotten great reviews and, of course, has a great website:

    Re: Better Call Saul!

    I love how it is being referred to as an "origin story" for the character. Very smart way to tackle it, IMO. I hadn't really thought of Breaking Bad in that light, but I suppose it makes sense. Kind of like the "making of" a super criminal, Walter White.

    I think I mentioned a couple years ago in the Breaking Bad thread how much I wanted this to happen... so yeah, I'm ready!

    The reviews of the first few episodes have been universally tremendous.

    Loved when they introduced the character into the show, looking forward to the series. Part me wonders how much, if any cameos we'll see from others in Breaking Bad. They could treat it like "Easter eggs" where its most unnoticeable, perhaps some small character that was only in a few brief issues just sitting in a restaurant as part of the "background" or amp it up a little to have some one like Badger sitting in a car as Saul stops at a red light, etc... Of course if they do too much of that stuff, it can quickly detract from the show. I'm sure the thought of cameos has been broached; wonder how they'll handle it.

    Badger already makes a "cameo" on the show's website and I believe Mike from my avatar actually has a recurrent role... so they certainly aren't shying away from overlaps with BB.

    I'm overly pleased with that first episode. Very impressed.

    That was pretty good. I'm interested to see how Mike gets involved and how Jimmy/Saul progresses as an attorney.

    The Pilot was great. Gilligan and friends are probably going to get all their projects green lighted.

    I don't want to wait a week.
