    It's Saul Good, Man! would be the title if it was a nineties tv show from The Simpsons version of a FOX sitcom.

    Bob Odenkirk on the Daily Show last night - not a great interview.

    It's the same as it always is when Stewart has a comedian friend on as a guest. They shoot the **** instead of talking about whatever the guest is promoting. Eh, whatever.

    Great news! Kelly Dixon is doing an insider podcast for this, as she did for Breaking Bad.

    For those that don't know, she was an editor on BB and often had Vince on the show. It was a brilliant insight into the show. Sadly I only got on it for the last season, but it became essential listening after each episode.

    Manager of a Cinnabon... amazing. He reminds me a lot of Walter White in that bit

    Liked it a lot. First 15 minutes or so were perfect.

    Had to explain why I was laughing at the beginning of the episode. Loved that whole scene. And the ending I kind of saw coming but still loved it and can't wait for tomorrow!

    Having slept on it...still love it!

    They struck the perfect balance between the familiar and intriguing new plot lines.

    @harpua he is definitely on the Walter White trajectory. Although he isn't Walter crazy.

    Given that Tuci showed up, I'm hopeful Hector will show up at some point aswell.


    Also, what was said is true. You don't have to have to have seen BB to get this. Sure, you won't get the easter eggs, but it's entirely accessible to those new to this universe.

    I don't think the show can really thrive long term if it has to depend too heavily on Breaking Bad character tie-ins. There have to be some, obviously. The show has to tell the story of how Saul becomes a thriving criminal lawyer. I like the idea that he doesn't really have a fall from grace in the way Walter White does. He's been shady since his youth, and when the chips are down, he doesn't agonize about turning to a life of crime to make ends meet.
