1st episode started off pretty slow, but 2nd episode was great. To be fair, for me the 1st few episodes of Breaking Bad were pretty slow as well. Tuco is awesome, this should be a good series.

I was afraid it was going to be low budget and try hard but I actually have some hope for it! First 2 episodes were good and there is definitely a foundation for a series. Especially like the cameos/inclusion of BB characters.

show definitely has a breaking bad feel to it, from the opening sequences, cameo's, music, etc

Now we get to see Saul Break Bad

Better Call Saul's Crappy Suzuki Esteem Is An Inspired Choice

Quote:
During its five season run, Breaking Bad had the best cars on television. (These days that award probably goes to Archer, of course.) None of Breaking Bad's cars were flashy, high-end exotics like some Michael Bay movie, they were just unusual, fascinating choices that seemed to suit the people who drove them. I'm happy to see its prequel, Better Call Saul, will carry on this tradition.


Before Breaking Bad, the Pontiac Aztek was a total joke, a rolling monument to Old GM's managerial incompetence. (And let's be honest, it still pretty much is.) But Breaking Bad had the unusual effect of redeeming the Aztek to an extent. Now, it wasn't just an ugly, failed early crossover, it was "Walter White's Car." That show was the best thing that ever happened to it.

This story from Esquire makes me wonder if Better Call Saul could do the same for the Esteem, an unusual sedan that isn't as reviled as the Aztek, but has definitely been lost to the annals of time. I'll admit I couldn't even place it at first glance until I saw its badge.

The show takes place in 2002, years before Breaking Bad, so I'm not sure what kind of punishment this poor Esteem took in just four years, but it had to have been brutal. Belching smog and with faded yellow paint and a mismatched door, it's the ride of choice of cash-strapped lawyer/con-man Jimmy McGill before he becomes the infamous mob lawyer Saul Goodman.

Here's why it's such a great choice:

"In its sorry state, Jimmy's Esteem (pun very much intended by Saul's producers) is more a reflection of its owner's unrealized potential, and throughout the pilot, this stubborn survivor of Jimmy's tragicomic misfortune, including a smashed windshield thanks to some scheming skateboarders, becomes not only a visual metaphor for McGill/Goodman, but a character of its own"


Spoiler!

I thought it was fairly obvious Gilligan/Gould wanted his beater as a metaphor...it even zoomed into the Esteem's decal in one shot haha
I'm still not sold on this show being something that will hold my interest over a few seasons...but it's solid enough to hit you in the feels for some scumbag lawyer in that B&W series opening scene.

I loved when we first saw his car when he was walking up to the Caddy SLS in the parking lot (same caddy that he drove in BB) and got in the pile of shit beside it lol

Pretty good so far. Will continue to watch. It will be cool seeing other BB characters from the before the BB series. Kind of like a prequel.

You guys will be disappoint.

That's the last we'll see of Tuco... at least in the foreseeable future.

Tuco isn't one of the main characters in the show, but rather was just used to tie-in Nacho, who is going to be on the show for a longer term.

Nacho seems like a fair person and will do perfect in the story line.

it's really good so far...but I hate starting brand new series like this I can't wait a whole week for a new episode.

with breaking bad I started when it was into the 4th season, watched them all in one sitting then had to wait for the rest.

hope they'll eventually show more post-BB Saul
I love how dark BB got closer to the end...perhaps Saul had family that was killed due to WW's actions.

from the last episode it looks like he was into some bad shit and Chuck (his brother) bailed him out and helped him in changing everything around and becoming a lawyer.
