    I just watched the first four episodes and I was really sceptical at first. Most spin offs I have seen have been really bad but I love Better Call Saul! I'm curious to see how Mike gets into it.

    Episode three was great. So many cultural references (allusions to The Sopranos, Riley's etc.) and great to see Mike come out of the booth!

    Kim seems a really interesting character. If there was one negative about Breaking Bad, it was the lack of strong and well-rounded female characters. Hopefully Kim becomes a major part of the plot.

    Also, Jimmy's "here's Johnny!" line when ripping open the tent made me laugh much more than it should have.

    Jimmy's advertising campaign against HHM was a lot of fun in episode four. I'm loving Kim more and more by each scene, too.

    Breaking Bad was amazing, so I think I should give this show a go sometime Is Saul able to pull off the role of the main character well? I thought he was great in BB, not sure where he'd stand without Walter and Jesse though.

    He and Mike are great together.

    The fourth is OK, but the fifth is amazing.

    It was a little Mike-heavy for my liking but good to see his emotional side and how much of a badass he is!

    This was a brilliant short film-episode. Jonathan Banks hit this one out the park. His acting was up there with Bill Cranston in my opinion. He brings a lot of depth and grit to the show. Awesome episode. The final scene goes without saying, but I really liked the shootout too. It was realistically done rather than a movie-like shooting that was clean.

    The writers in these series are incredibly talented. I have never seen such well written drama on television. This series is slowly shaping up to be something special too. So far, every episode has delivered more than I expected. Bob Odenkirk is a revelation too - he can really pull off the drama. I thought he'd be a one-trick pony (comedy) but he's filling the role beautifully.

    Banks' performance was award-winning. It was so great to see those deeper layers and characteristics to Mike. He's such a crucial character to Breaking Bad, and it always felt like he had a hidden backstory. So glad that that's finally being explored. What an actor, what a character.

    Very disappointed with the latest episode. I get that they're trying to explore Mike's backstory, but the episode falls flat on its face and the writing fails miserably, on every single level. This is truly a bad episode. Horrible pacing, weak acting, stupid writing. I give it 2/10. I thought breaking bad was bad, but this show takes bad to whole new level that I haven't seen previously.

    I agree, this was one of my least favourite episodes so far.

    I loved learning more about Mike and thought it was a great episode! I think the show started off slowly and it's still finding it's footing but it is genuinely quite an interesting show. I think they mix comedy and drama quite well and Jimmy is amazing - I can't wait for him to fully transform into Saul. I would also love to see badger or even Jessie make a cameo but I think this is just wishful thinking....
