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 »

Gilligan and Gould do it again !!!
10 March 2015 | by Rachel HunterSee all my reviews

Six episodes in to Better Call Saul now - and like Breaking Bad did - it just gets better and better. Tonights episode was something really special IMO

I look forward to Tuesdays like never before

Terrific plots - writing - acting - direction - cinematography etc etc etc in short a really great story very well told by all the cast and crew

How brave of everyone involved to take this project on after the HUGE success of Breaking Bad - knowing so many eyes would be on them - comparing and judging from the very first episode !!! Better Call Saul hit the road running though and has never disappointed me (and it would seem the vast majority of other viewers)

The hopes and expectations of so many people were in their hands and EVERYONE involved with Better Call Saul has done us proud

Bob Odenkirk is doing a fantastic job as the main character - in recent years he has been wonderful in Breaking Bad, Fargo and now BCS - not a bad catalogue of work to put in your resume !!!

Got the DVD ordered already
