Still miss this show, nothing on current TV even comes close to living up to it.
I just hope in the future there will be show that I can look back on and compare to Breaking Bad.

AMC is liking the early dailies of "Better Call Saul" sooo much that they're renewing the 10-episode first season for a 13-episode second season before it's even finished shooting the pilot episode.

Unfortunately, this also means they want to give them some more time to work with and put the show in a more prominent launch-point, so the show is being delayed for one quarter. It was supposed to debut this fall, but instead will start airing next year.

---

This makes me wonder if AMC plans to schedule the show's premiere around when Season Five of The Walking Dead finishes up ... which may mean we're waiting until April-ish for the show to start running.

It sure seems like AMC is trying to build up a nice stable of strong serieses to air on Sunday evenings and arranging their schedule so that whenever one finishes a season, the next one starts up. For instance, "Halt and Catch Fire" is airing now, but a few weeks after it's season one finale, "The Walking Dead" takes up it's timeslot. So ... I'm betting that in March to April is when we'll finally see "Better Call Saul".

I didn't read any of the posts in this thread, as I just started binge watching this last week. Watching 2 episodes a day... lol

For some reason I didn't watch any of it while it was on TV and find it really really good.

Well to me, regular watching is once a week... as they come out.


14 episodes a week = binge

Either way, enjoying the show! Watching it now actually

Got much more excited for Better Call Saul now that they said it wont JUST be a prequel.

I honestly believe I will never come to love a show more than I did Breaking Bad. It was just perfect in everyway....even the crap I couldnt stand (Skylar and Marie). Honestly I wouldnt even care if Vince Gilligan decided to pull some crazy twist and to those who have seen the end to....you know what with you know who and make another go at it. I know that would be next to impossible to write out and do justice but I dont care. I loved it so much.

The show ended on a high note, so I hope they don't ruin it.

Agreed. I enjoyed the open-ended conclusion to the series but I feel like this is an attempt to give fans "closure" despite what Gilligan has to say.

The hype. It is real...

I can't believe it. It all ended so well, where the fuck are they going to go from that ending?

Eh, I don't know. People are saying that the article is fake now although Gilligan's statement sounds pretty legit.

I agree, it sounds a little out of left field. Like, why bother hiding that there's going to be a 6th season?

I would prefer it to end the way it did, but if Gilligan can make a 6th season compelling, I'm on board. Although undoing Walt's death would, if this is real, piss off many, many fans I'd imagine.

I fully agree on both points. Even if Season 6 is real and is well-done, I'd prefer not to ever even have it.

Sorry guys, but this isn't real. The site is satirical, like The Onion.

Does anybody know when Better Call Saul actually starts? It's a shame it's a prequel, but at the same time I don't really wanna know what happened after the last episode.

I liked Breaking Bad so much that it achieved a status in my mind nothing else ever has. They did it SO GOOD....that I literally would wish that season 6 stuff was true. Why? They are just so good at this....I don't think they would ruin things. They just did things so well....and if they wanted to do something else....I don't think I would be disappointed.

I saw this and instantly thought of all the annoying complainers that didn't like the sulfuric acid melted bodies. But anyone who's actually seen highly-concentrated sulfuric acid in action knows that it melts shit down so fast it's scary.

Although debunking everything else, didn't MythBusters prove on their Breaking Bad episode that the acid thing was possible? Why would anyone be complaining?

Back in the day when the episodes were fresh (before Mythbusters proof), a lot of people were complaining. I don't remember anyone here doing so, but there was a lot of hemming and hawing on the net at the time.

That video just made me think of Breaking Bad I guess
