I absolutely love this show. Best new show besides fargo. I like it more than breaking bad as well. I think I can only take so much gun fights, gang warfare, and drug dealing before it bores the hell out of me. I really enjoy the court intrigue/cerebral stuff and kind of takes the whole "bending the rules" thing to the higher echelons of society by dressing the people who uphold the law and their lives surrounding it. I really enjoy court/office intrigue over gang fights any day. And there is mike's storyline to fullfill that end of the spectrum. So we have best of both worlds and some diversity to keep us from one story boring us to death. I love both perspectives though and I like that it switches.
Vince cilligan for one of the best scriptwriters today or what?
! The whole deal about the law being sacred from season 1 is bs obviously. The law is always changing in regards to what's ethical and unethical. He definitely stopped to his level in the end of season 2 but I think chuck would justify it by making jimmy the bad guy and claiming he is the first one to play this game. Although, shouldn't chuck be the "uptight" lawyer in this case or the bigger man as so he claimed.
Absolutely love this show. And I really love Kim as well and their interaction together. She is such an amazing character as well as a decent human being as far as I can tell. She is awesome and I enjoy watching their relationship unfold.
Also, this thread explicitly says better call saul. You shouldn't be in this thread if you haven't caught up with the show tbh. shouldn't be a need for spoiler tags.
It also helps that the main character is more sympathetic than the lead in Breaking Bad. Sure, I loved watching Walt change and make increasingly dangerous decisions, but I root for Jimmy more because of how he's always working an uphill battle.
And spoiler tags are a thing of courtesy, and considering the season ended less than a month ago, it's not unreasonable to see people use them. Some people like to visit the thread to see people's reactions to the latest episodes, without being spoiled.
