    Why is it underwhelming that we see the central character have his life altering epiphany over the value or right/wrong/hardwork. The series ends with Jimmy becoming Saul. He's never going to make the mistake of playing it straight again, of working harder than everyone for nothing to show for it. The week in Chicago told him two things: 1., he's damn good at hustling, 2. Life is too short to not hustle.

    In the end, everyone dies. How you go out is the one thing you have say over. Marco died with a smile on his face. Jimmy wants that.

    All that Jimmy was doing for Chuck and the guy can't even give him a spot at HHM. I know Jimmy owed Chuck a lot but he had his straightened and the dude was completely dependant on him. He was on the right track. Chuck made him go back to Slippin Jimmy. Chuck created Saul.

    ^Idk Im a big fan of show but the finale did feel underwhelming. Not a bad episode but I was expecting something spectacular tbh.

    I know what you're saying about underwhelming for a season finale but I thought it was a pretty good ending. I like that they didn't leave it on a cliffhanger. The first season is a complete stand alone story on it's own and if it didn't return, you're not left wondering what happened. Maybe they spent too much time with him in Chicago. Liked the ending and even though I knew what was coming, I was still pulling for Jimmy to go in and take the solid job in the end.

    Sucks now that it's the waiting game. Hopefully next season, they get picked up for more episodes than the 1st. Although not if they have to sacrifice good writing.

    Just started watching season one (think I've watched three episodes). I was skeptical at first because I wasn't sure about the prequel format, but I like it so far.

    I really love the way the show has integrated Ehrmantraut. It just keeps getting better throughout the season.

    First season left me feeling like perhaps I am one of Slippin' Jimmy's marks. I mean, perhaps it's just me but I'm always looking for how this connects to Breaking Bad. I see characters from that show and wonder how they will eventually become part of the Heisenberg/Jesse connection, how did they get to that point. I am not concerned with Jimmy's path. He's interesting, no doubt, but not much. He's a genuine soul, or so it seems, and he's set on pleasing his bigger brother, to make him proud. At the end of the season we see the Saul come out, when yet another ty thing happens to Jimmy. It was non stop bad luck for Jimmy, an entire season of it, getting ed at every turn and you could predict everything in advance because of it. Who didn't know the shredded paper was in another container? So yeah, I feel like they are just milking more out of BB, but it's not bad. I find myself FFWing through some of the dialogue between Mike and his daughter. I am done with Mike, was done with in in BB. I have no concern for him.

    Just a group of out of work actors getting together to squeeze the last bit of whatever out of that series.

    Just finished season one. Jesus I was laughing my ass off at Jimmy's "Chicago sunroof" meltdown during the bingo game.

    Looking forward to season 2.
