    This show needs an episode by episode discussion, just like Breaking Bad.

    Still digesting it, but Tuco is back!

    Thanks for doing the episode thread.

    The pilot was decent. I'll watch episode 2.

    Well, actually, this is the first time we see Tuco.

    He's back in Breaking Bad.

    ;)

    Michael McKean as Saul's older brother is a pretty awesome casting choice.

    I really hadn't read anything about the show before watching it. But for some reason, I thought it was going to be more lighthearted. While sure, there are funny parts (just like BB), I'm glad it's not a comedy.

    Initially when they first started floating the idea of a spinoff, there was talk of a 30-minute comedy centered around Saul. But once they actually fleshed out the idea and AMC greenlit it, it was an hour-long drama. Just like BB, any comedy will be very dark.

    Loved the pilot. Can't wait to watch Ep. 2 Monday night.

    Did they get the right station wagon, but Jimmy McGill messed up and the car belonged to the housekeeper.
    Or did the skater dudes mess up and jump in front of the wrong station wagon?

    I'm thinking it was the wrong car, since we saw the right woman get into it in her driveway.

    The review from the other thread mentioned something about the appearance of a beloved Breaking Bad character other than Mike. I never imagined it would be Tuco.

    Good start. I'm intrigued.

    I loved the opening scenes and I agree it's a solid winner.

    It was a good setup episode, but I was not entertained. I'll give it a shot for "Saul" to appear before I make my decision.

    Not a surprise, I new several people that owned cars almost identical to that one. Heck, I owned a Taurus sedan back in the day too.

    But the odds of one the same color, with a license plate starting with a 4 and coming down the road at around the same time are pretty low.

    I don't think the one in the driveway started with a 4, I may be wrong though

    we saw as Jimmy approached the door that this wagon also has a smashed windshield ... I didn't look to see the tags though.
