Goofs

In some of the wide shots of throughout the series, it's clear that the Albuquerque is the one that exists from 2015 and later rather the one which existed in the early 2000s. There are homes in areas which were vacant in 2003 and there buildings missing which have been torn down in the interim. See more »

Amazing, takes the best things from Breaking Bad and adds comedy
12 February 2015 | by liamvdheuvelSee all my reviews

To be honest, I didn't know what to expect with this, following on after one of the best series of all time, on a character who seemed to be a bit of comic relief in an otherwise brutal and dark show, I did have my doubts. Now that two episodes have been released however, any concerns should be put aside by anyone interested, because this is fantastic.

Gilligan's camera work is masterful and similarly creative to that of Breaking Bad, and Saul as a character or should I say 'Jimmy McGill', is not as vacuous as I once thought, and whilst it was obvious Saul Goodman was a facade, to see his other side in the flesh is great. The acting is fantastic, with very powerful scenes already in the first two episodes, and the tone is dark, but often quite humorous with plenty of laughs throughout.

Basically to sum up in two words: watch this.
