    Loved it last year, but got busy towards the end of the season and didn't see the last 2.

    Watched 6-10 over the past 24 hours and gotta say I absolutely love this show.


    There are aspects of it that I like better than BB.
    I'll probably spring for the season pass. Thought about it today, and I'd rather not wait months to see it on Netflix.

    Yeah as crazy as it sounds the writing is even tighter than BB. I mean, BB will always be first, but the first season of BCS felt like you had the experience of 6 seasons of BB working for it. Look at his brother, who figured when the show started that would be some crappy B-plot about his wacky brother who's afraid of electricity. And they just tied that in so beautifully, and did it over 10 episodes, such a great long game.

    Walking Dead last night was enjoyable.

    Just when I'm getting bored with it (as I go through every season), they suck me back in with a good episode.

    Not with that haircut you won't.

    I caught about the first half hour of it before I went to bed, sorta half-watching while I was at the computer. I know I'll keep watching, cause hey, rock and roll. But a couple things did bug me initially. First was the association of real bands with the fictional record label. Just took me out of it, cause everyone knows that Zeppelin was on Atlantic Records. Couldn't get past my suspension of disbelief. Second was the casting of Ray Romano. Just hearing his voice and all I can picture is Everybody Loves Raymond. Again, suspension of disbelief.

    And James Jagger sounds just like his father. Not sure if that's an intentional decision for his character, or that's just how he is.

    I'm going to watch it tonight. I had hockey last night.

    edit: W T F...terrible ending to the season. I dont get why people love this show so much...just watch Fight Club it is over faster and at least the narrative works better.
    I think we agree on this one. I didn't really get all the hype either.

    On another note, The Good Wife is ending and it makes me sad. This season has been so good. Might be my favorite of them all and that's saying something because my favorite character left last season.

    Oh, well. 8 more episodes to enjoy.

    If it was The Matrix, or 300, or Star Wars...sure. But Better Call Saul? Meh. I'll probably spring for the SD, just so I don't have to wait a year to see it on Netflix. It's a good show.

    It's not the actual dollar amount, it's the % difference that bothers me. /principleofthething
