90 minutes of Jesse Pinkman trying to come up with $1800.
It was the "good" Walt during the "good" times
I get that, but the performance was lame.
Thinking about it, the BB series finale show Jesse's escape. So the entire el Camino was just a JessExtension of escape. I'll take more if they'll put it out there.
I have avoided 'Call Saul', until now having read a few comments in this thread regarding the show. And now being re-juiced from re-watching the series finale and el Camino, I am going in. What a world....
I was a big fan of the show, and watched El Camino over the weekend and thought it was great. But it reminded me a how much I had forgotten about the show. So last night I went back and watched the very first episode of Breaking Bad, the pilot. If there has ever been a better pilot episode of any show in the history of television, I would like to hear about it. It absolutely rocks. It sets up all the storylines to come, and is a blast from beginning to end.
If you have never watched Breaking Bad, I would urge anyone to watch it. You will know within the first 5 minutes whether it is for you or not. And if you are already a fan, go back and watch it again. It's 10 years old, so you probably forgot it the same way I did.
I liked it overall, but the physical appearance of some of the actors threw me. I would see a familiar character (Todd) and think, "Wow! He looks a lot different after 10 years!" and then realize the story takes place the same day as the series ended.
They make a TODD formula perhaps...
Pretty good review. There were good times, but in the end I was...eh.
Better Call Saul is GREAT
I expected it to suck, but instead, it totally satisfied.
It was fun seeing all those terrible characters again.
94% on Rotten Tomatoes
Would have taken me a lot longer than that to come up with $1800....
I watched it, enjoyed it, was shocked at how some of the actors have aged/enlarged, and now have a renewed anticipation for the next series of Better Call Saul.
And I agree that it's probably time to revisit the original series...if only I had the time!
Thanks we saw it...I'm an idiot. I finally realized it's Netflix, it's on when you want it on, not like programmed TV..
I have stated on this site before that I didn't get all the love for BB--I detested the characters when I tried to watch it several years ago. I gave it a try again about 4-5 months ago, got sucked in, and loved it. I would have to say it tops "Sopranos" as best ever for me, due to the fact it was consistently excellent and had a good finale.
I was a little let down by El Camino. Like you, not sure what I expected, but it just sort of.... meandered, or something.
I thought Walt's brief part added nothing to the film.
Though she is universally disliked, I was curious what happened to Skyler (and Walt Jr for that matter). That would have been of interest to me. She was looking at the possibility of prison. If that didn't happen--did she eventually get the money? One assumes so, but it would have been nice to know exactly what happened to Walt's family.
Overall the movie was a 3 on a 5 scale for me. Definitely did not love it like BB.
