You might have to wait a few days.

On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk

Not a problem.  I am a season behind on SOA anyways.  Get caught up on that and give this a shot.  I am looking forward to it since BB was my favorite TV show of all time.

Okay, first I want to congratulate myself for being EXACTLY right.

Here are the results: Better Call Saul had 3.4 million viewers and a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49. That’s precisely a 50 percent drop in viewers, along with a 52 percent fade in the demo.

Remember who said this?

I'm sure it drew massive ratings last night.  My guess is that tonight's episode brings back only about half of that total. 

If you said Kaos?  You're gotDAMN right. 

And therein lies some of the problem.  The second show was, IMO much better than the first.  After it got the Tuco shoot out of the way early it moved at a pretty good pace and the character started to take shape.  Problem is that only half the people who watched the blah first episode bothered to come back for the second one.  The first episode didn't do enough for anybody who wasn't already a part of the Bad universe to bring them back in. 

I feel better about the series overall after seeing the second episode but I still have my doubts. 

I don't like Chuck and think that may be a dead end story that needs to go away.

Chuck might have been a bit of a doof, but Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) was hot as hell.

I think some of the viewers were confused by the consecutive night's episodes.

Dexter fudgeed her. She was all kinds of naked on the killing table.

Then they shouldn't breed. They only ran ads for it every eleven seconds for 90 days.

I did watch it the second night, but it was late.  I couldn't convince my wife to watch it again because as she said - "Didn't we watch it last night?"

It was a bad idea to run it two nights in a row.  Should have just done a two hour special if they felt the need to get the ball rolling that quickly.

Re: Better Call Saul
I'm with the majority here, the 1st episode was pretty boring, but the second one shows some promise of getting back to the Bad style.  I'll stick around and see where it goes this season.

Agree with Kaos about the Chuck line as well.

Good episode tonight. I like how they are setting show up. Maybe some don't like it, but I'm in.

If you're not watching this show, you are seriously missing out.

Re: Better Call Saul
The cinematography is good, but it's just not holding me. 

It's not "must see" by any stretch of the imagination.

Re: Better Call Saul
To be fair, you rarely back off your initial opinion. You were never going to like the show. 

With that said, tonight's episode was very good. They are doing a great job of showing the beginning of the the partnership between Jimmy and Mike. Jonathan Banks was good as Mike in breaking bad. He was fantastic in tonight's episode. Maybe the show isn't for everyone. I really like it.
