Caught up on 1st two episodes of Better Call Saul and I liked this show more than I thought I would. Spoilers. The first episode dragged, the montages were a little long, but they're not any different than those in Breaking Bad. It's just cooking Cinnabons ain't the same as cooking meth. The second hour was better especially with the guy with thing in the living room with the salsa and then out to the desert. Space blanket guy is his brother based on info I heard from the writers of the show, when I learned that, things made more sense. Michelle MacClaren directed the second hour, did an awesome job as always. They're milking the developing relationship with Mike, which makes sense. FYI, the second episode is free on the AMC website, have to pay elsewhere. I didn't doubt the acting chops of the lead actor, I've seen him in shows elsewhere, it's just whether there's enough material to write for the character, there are lawyer shows abound. Looks good so far. Oh and those bone crunching noises - squirm. Not sure which was worse, these or squeezing a woman by cracking bones into a suitcase in another recent show on FX.

I watched em both last night, and loved it.  Without even being a critic, you could tell it was put together by the BB people.  I agree that the thing with the guy and the salsa on the carpet was fantastic, and I also loved the Napolean Dynamite twins.  Still no spoilers, but there was one part (Ep 2) - well, actually 2 successive parts - that LITERALLY made me cringe. ;)

And no idea what's going on with space blanket (yes, that's his brother - the McGill part kind of gives it away, no? ;)) guy either - apparently some really unusual magnet-related affliction.

Oh, and I was a big fan of the blonde lawyer chick when she was on Franklin and Bash so I hope she has a big role.

Can't wait for Ep 3!!!

I'm dying to know if the guy club soda'd the salsa carpet stain,  ha ha! God, he's such an entertaining psychopath.

"You are the worst lawyer, the worst lawyer ever!"

"Hey, I talked you down from a death sentence to six months' probation! I'm the BEST lawyer ever."

LOL, I would agree!  (Never :beer: mind that they would never have been in that position in the first place without said lawyer ;))

The wife and I started watching The Blacklist lately. It's a little corny how Red's character knows anyone and everything related to each major event... but not enough to really bother me. We are both enjoying the show so far.

Yeah, we enjoy this as well.  You nailed it - it's a little formulaic and a little over the top how Red knows EVERYTHING that is going to happen 8 steps ahead of everybody else - but it's entertaining, so we're still watching it. :beer:

Already my favorite series on TV three shows in.

Yeah, same here.  Was telling my friend the other day that the wife and I have 3 or 4 shows we watch and enjoy, but I'd probably not watch any of them if she didn't.  But BCS is on a different level.  I'm watching that one with or without her and I'm already eagerly looking forward to the next episode every week.

QI finally here in the US on BBC America. Always learning lots of new things plus fun banter if you like that dry English wit.

Put Parks and Recreation on the back burner, finally started to watch, trying to get through season 1 (yeah, I know it just ended.) I know it gets better season 2, but very uneven this season is and slow to get through it. Good thing it's only 6 episodes, about halfway through. Amy Poehler, you are funnier than this. You get funnier right?

Had the same problem. Gets much better when Rob Lowe joins the cast, I think later in season 2.

My son was visiting the other day. I had bought some new workout gear. Was wearing an Under Armor tee, pretty cool shirt, clima cool, all that. He accused me of wearing a Chris Trager shirt. Funny.

Monument Valley on House of Cards! I sold my Xbox on eBay it was too addictive is another sneak in ad? Windows phone is the smartphone of endorsement this season. Colbert being Colbert. On chapter 30 so far. Pretty much on par with the past 2 seasons.

Season 2 of Vikings just opened up on Prime, I'm already on ep 7. Greatness.

I think Vikings represents the pinnacle of made for TV production - with all that goes into building the elaborate sets, boats, props, battle scenes, etc etc  ... it's pretty much unprecedented.    Loosely based on fact makes it even more engaging.   I can see why it took almost a year between seasons - it just takes so long to produce that level of awesome.

I challenge anyone who hasn't seen it to watch this current season trailer:

I have Amazon Prime and have been meaning to watch it. So many good shows these days. Hard to get to them all. I'll get to it soon though.
