I'm enjoying it. Episode 3 isnt as strong, but still good.

Fuck comparing it to bb. There's a lot worse shit on tv you could be watching.

And I like the cameos. It feels good to know the characters from the off and not have to spend half a season working them out.

Breaking Bad had so many strong characters that I think its well worth expanding on their stories, rather that just Walt and Jessie's. As long as we don't have to find out about Skyler or Walt Jr I'm happy.. They were cunts.

Agree with every thing but that.
 
I like the twists/surprises that come with not knowing a character.

Pretty weak episode again imo. Not for me

Bit of a stupid reason to watch it, there's loads of better tv to watch too.

Breaking Bad being so popular meant it was inevitable people would be eager to criticise this straight away. Its quite irrirating how predictable it is tbh.

I wouldn't say its a reason to watch it. But compared to 99% of the drivel that is put out on television these days......

Horses for courses obviously.

I know quite a few people who don't like bb..(shock horror!) Because there's basically nothing good that happens in season one, its all misery. They couldn't be arsed to carry on.

It's ok. Will definitely watch it all but it's nothing special.

This this & this again.
 
I'm trying to judge it as a stand alone program rather than a BB spin off.

Similarly its irritating how predictable the absolute rimming it's getting is, despite being pretty average.

it just speaks to problem these days generally - everything is either fawned over as the greatest fucking thing ever, or hated on as the worst thing ever conceived by mankind
 
the reality is that most things are just somewhere in the middle

Happens all the time on here. A tv show comes along that is leagues ahead of most of the other shit that gets shown and people just pick it apart. Happened with This Is England 86 & 88. People saying it's "shit" etc...
 
You do realise the majority of TV time is filled with shit like Eastenders and Storage Wars right? Anything that is leagues ahead of the usual bollocks should be applauded imo.
 
Three episodes in and thoroughly enjoying it, can tell there's a lot of exposition to get through to get the ball rolling. No doubt there will be some excellent set pieces/new characters to come. It annoys me that a lot of people (twitter etc...) don't seem to be able to get there head round the fact that this isn't BB.

Pretty sure the only people saying it's not that great have said just that. It's not that great. That's it, no one has acted even remotely like you have made out there. 
 
I think it's decidedly average so far and relies on BB too much to have any kind of draw. That's what I get from 3 episodes in. It's not really anything like this:

now is it? Where has this conversation taken place?

Think you said so (at least half of his point anyway) below

We get it though squire. You don't think its amazing, and won't be having a Better Call Saul themed stag do. Its all good.

You've just quoted me saying it's average you fucking speng, not 'the worst thing ever conceived by mankind', or anything even close to that. You've proven my point

Jeeze. Angry this morning aren't we treacle.

I was referring to the part where you claimed its getting an 'absolute rimming'.

But let's move on shall we?

It's first thing in the morning and I had to come in early to get the central line, so yes. 
 
I don't see how that's relevant to my or your point, but I can see you struggle with logic, so let's leave it there.

Thought episode 3 was the best one yet! Enjoying it so far, not gonna make any wild judgements after just 3 episodes anyway. Interested to see how it progresses.

razor said something about everyone completely panning it, you said something about everyone rimming it...
 
ultimately i agree with you - it's pretty average at the mo, but that's ok! it's only three episodes in and i'm enjoying it for what it is. expectation was always going to be it's biggest enemy. breaking bad didn't really get going for me until around the time jane died, so i'm not gonna bin it just yet

BB's not as good as the Wire, so why would the spin off be?
