Really want to like this show but it's terrible. Boring as drymount. Production value is huge but they try to do these little "alternative" shots and it just comes off flat. Vince Gilligan just has a massive ego now, writing is just atrocious and the love interest lawyer chick is so hard to watch struggle through her scenes. McKean getting by on his name. Mike is the only thing even remotely interesting and even his scenes are just straight rehashes from BB. Saul bad, man.

Me too. I binge watched Season 1 after initially bailing one ep in. Glad I did. It was a great watch, and this season has started out pretty strong.

I concur, it's brilliant. You can't go in expecting Breaking Bad, it's not the same show.

Figured I'd be in the minority. And i really did not go in expecting BB. But I'm in now and will hope it improves for me.

I agree that it can seem a bit slow at times, but I felt the same about some episodes of BB. I watch the next day with no commercials so it doesn't seem as slow to me. I drymounting love it, top 3 show going right now with House of Cards and Game of Thrones IMO.

Pretty hard to put another show above these right now. I agree fa sho.... TV is killing it right now. I'm so happy BCS turned out to be way better than I thought.

Love the new episodes. Really liked the ending on the bed. Slippin jimmy is still alive
The people vs. Oj is getting pretty damn good though and only a few episodes in if anybody needs another show to view.

Similar comparison is the Lone Gunman to the X-Files. You want to like it as it sort of reminds you of the good show, but it really isn't very good.
