Ian doesn't like it. Means it's good. This never fails.

New season has started and in the tradition of glib BEEX comments “I thought it was good”.

Just finished the penultimate episode of the latest series...honestly this is the best show on at the moment and probably has now surpassed Breaking Bad. After last weeks pew, pew, pew this one was much quieter while amping up the tension. Brilliant stuff and outstanding work by all involved.

I’m loving the Jimmy/Kim stuff as always. The Mike/Gus arc is just so dull.

So dull. We know none of them die. We know the laundromat gets built. There’s no tension or danger at all.

I’m so excited to find out what happens to Kim.

I just started Season 5 last night as i wanted it all to be available when I started (which I think it nearly is now). There was the usual trying to remember what happened at the end of the last season, and the strange Cinnabon stuff, but very quickly its tendrils had wrapped themselves around me and I was utterly entranced again.

I agree with the above, I think on a rewatch of Breaking Bad, it might be Better Call Saul that comes out on top. Not sure.

It’s fine, we all like different things about it. Some like the cleverness and audacity of Jimmy and Kim’s schemes and their complicated relationship; others like Mike being a geriatric meathead

I've done six episodes and I'm liking it well enough but it's gone a little bit soap opera-esque in the last two episodes and fuck me they're taking their time with it, and with the best will in the world a couple of the cast members look like they could pop their clogs at any moment. (And indeed one of them actually has, so he won't be in Season 6.)

I honestly think they need to get this one wrapped up so it can segue into the world of Breaking Bad.

Apparently Season Six is next year and that will be the last one, so let's hope everyone lives long enough.

Oh yes and whilst I'm prepared to suspend disbelief on the increasingly old Mike, despite the fact this is supposed to be a prequel to BB, the man really looks like he just wants to have a nap most of the time.

Gah! I misjudged things and now I'm right up to date and have to wait for a new episode to land.

I felt episodes 5 and 6 were a shade on the weak side (by BCS standards, i.e. still very good), but 7, 8 and 9 were stellar.

I'll tell you who's a fucking good character, Lalo Salamanca, so well written and so perfectly acted by Tony Dalton, he's emerged as one of my favourite characters this season.

Rhea Seehorn continues to make me 'see the horn'.

Dalton looks like he’s having all the fun in the world playing Lalo.

Great season.Even got me rooting for ‘the bad guy’ (Or one of them at least) in the last ep. Plus Nacho is the new Jesse.

It's going to be ages. I hope they're keeping Mike safe in a hermetically sealed room somewhere.

It's an intriguing setup up for the final creation of Saul Goodman, and we know that Kim needs to be off the scene before Breaking Bad starts.

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
I'm wondering if Jimmy gazumps Kim's plan to fuck Howard over, to save Kim from destroying a part of herself, as Jimmy knows what the price you pay personally for shit like that is.

Seems to be the same with all the Cartel people, like they give off this either stiff pencil pusher look, or drunk and seemingly no idea how they got there, but when it matters they turn on bad ass mode and just kill everyone.

I just caught up on the last few episodes of this. Jesus wept. The final season is going to be incredible.
