Anyone else watching this?

It's better than I was expecting it to be. I'm glad to see some of the Breaking Bad characters again, hello Mike and Tuco! I wonder who else might make an appearance this season....

yes we are finished with the first episode and part way through the second episode!
i didnt recognize Tuco at first and my husband was like TUCO!!!!

was the older wheelchair dude (ding ding ding!) from Breaking Bad Tuco's grandfather or was he related to someone else?
i want HIM back!!

the more cameos the better! i think Mike will be a major part of the show because the actor gets second billing (he's Jonathan Banks right?)

so far really enjoying it. feel really bad for Saul. so far he has been having the worst 1-2 days EVER

is Chuck supposed to be his dad?
also is Chuck Jack Ripper from Three's Company?

I'm definitely loving this show.

Chuck is be Saul/Jimmy's older brother. The actor playing him is Michael McKean, who was Squiggy (or was it Lenny) from the old tv show Laverne and Shirley. He later was in This Is Spinal Tap.

I believe that the old man in the wheelchair was Tuco's grandfather. I fully expect to see him pop up in Better Call Saul, but not in a wheelchair. I expect him to be a grand old senior badass.

I'm looking forward to seeing Mike's character develop.

I loved the reference/homage to All The Jazz when Saul/Jimmy gets into his coffee/court/check/coffee/court/check routine.

Yes! Lenny! That's who that is!
I just finally remembered John Ritter was the actor I was thinking of and he's dead isn't he? (R.I.P.)

I wanna see wheelchair grandpa! That guy was badass.
My husband was just wondering how much before Breaking Bad this show is set

Yes! That was probably my favorite part as well. Nice touch.

I've only seen the first episode so far but I thought it was awesome. I can't wait to watch the next episode.

I wasn't sure about this show after the first episode, but the second one totally hooked me.

I really hope Tuco's uncle appears this season! I bet he was a bad mother hubbard.

And maybe we'll see Gus Fring again! Breaking Bad had so many great characters with lots of potential.

Heh, I was just YouTubing Hector Salamanca and I totally forgot about the episode where he was taken in for questioning and shat himself on purpose. For a character with no lines, he was amazing.

Would someone be willing to fix the typo in the thread title? I keep thinking about cauls and getting weirded out.

Woah...I didn't even realise I'd typed that! Brain fart.

And Hollie, I'm watching it on Netflix UK.....we normally get stuff super late (season 7 of SOA isn't even on there yet) but for some reason we have this straight away.

I loved the dark humour in the part where Tuco and Jimmy were negotiating/haggling about the punishment for the two boys. Liking it so far!

i imagine Gus will make an appearance if the actor who played him is willing because doesnt Mike work for Gus in Breaking Bad?

i would love if Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston make sort of background cameos. i mean we know they dont really know who Saul is pre-Breaking Bad but they could appear in the background or a sort of random run in. that would be good.

plus Badger and Skinny Pete!

Isn't it great? I love Saul's determination....that dumpster scene made me gag a little.
And it's been cool getting the back stories of some of the breaking bad characters.

Me too - it was pretty gross!

I wasn't sure about this show when they first announced that they were making it, but I'm really into it now!
