Quote from: Blue Jam on April 06, 2021, 11:55:10 PMHeh, it's the other way round in our house. Mr Jam finds BB "a bit laboured" and BCS "a much wittier show". And I agree with him!Do your family like Mr. Show or Spinal Tap? Or The Big Lebowski? Mr Jam also reckons the humour in BCS is "very Big Lebowski" and I agree with him there too.For me it also helps that the overall premise of BCS isn't utterly ludicrous and that the main character isn't a pathologically prideful sociopath, and that all the other characters are actually properly fleshed out and complex and have more than a single character trait like just really really liking breakfast (for example). Those arguments probably aren't going to convince BB-preferers though.

Quote from: colacentral on June 30, 2021, 03:09:56 PMThe supporting cast of both BB and Saul leave a lot to be desired, but I still think Saul's is much worse by a wide margin, not least because Gus and Mike were caricatures to begin with, and they're still the two standouts after Saul / Jimmy himself.
QuoteI feel the same. The chemistry between Walt and Jesse is what makes Breaking Bad what it is, that and Cranston's incredible performance specifically the way that he can convey all the different facets of Walt's bullshittery.
Quote from: druss on July 02, 2021, 12:18:27 PMI hope we get to see future Jimmy and I hope he has a relatively happy ending as I found him far more sympathetic and redeemable than Walt
Quote from: mothman on July 02, 2021, 07:33:34 PMThing is, I don't think we know the full story behind why Jimmy/Saul decided to do a runner and become Gene. Who exactly is he running from? There's never any suggestions he's wanted or implicated in Walt's or Jesse's crimes. Nobody knew about Jesse's confession tape except Hank and Gomey - and the Nazis, once they torture it out of Jesse, and then steal it. So its existence can't be a factor in making him run. Nobody knows Jimmy was laundering money that we're aware of.
Quote from: An tSaoi on July 02, 2021, 07:01:56 PMJust to wade in on the BB vs BCS debate... I only watched the first season of BCS so I can't judge it overall, but it seems to me that BB has a better hook: a chemistry teacher who becomes a meth kingpin is an inspired, almost funny idea
Quote from: Blue Jam on July 02, 2021, 09:16:27 PMI'm more intrigued by a charcacter who has the gift of an off-the-scale level of charm and who could use that ability for good, or to at least do pretty well for himself, but who can't resist the easy pickings from turning to the dark side
Quote from: Blue Jam on July 02, 2021, 09:16:27 PMJust did a rewatch and I think it's all there in that scene where he's talking to Walt outside the carwash. Walt asks him if he's wearing a bulletproof vest, and he says something like "Well, I'm feeling pretty vulnerable now my bodyguard has disappeared, where the hell is he?" and then the penny drops that Huell is with the DEA and probably about to grass him up. Even if there's no proof that he's a money launderer he's still an accessory to several murders and a massive meth cooking/dealing operation, and facing the rest of his life in prison if he doesn't call Ed the Disappearer and start a new life as a Cinnabon manager in Nebraska.
Quote from: mothman on July 03, 2021, 08:43:50 AMIt's true, we do tend to forget Huell (and assume the DEA did too, har har).Finding himself still in the custody of the DEA, who have two senior agents missing and quite pissed off about, would be enough to overcome any residual loyalty to Saul, I guess. And if they get Kuby as well...[nb]Though it also lands Skyler really, irrevocably in the shit, as both have extensive knowledge both of what she was up to herself, and her active involvement in what Walt was doing. I somehow don't think she'd be living free with custody of her children in that scenario?[/nb]
