I didn't see a thread for this, so apologies if one was made and it is buried in the pages.
Anyway, the pilot was last night @ 9 pm on AMC. A repeat will happen tonight at the same time in case you missed it, were too hung up on The Walking Dead that aired previously, or were watching the Grammy's.
My thoughts: It was pretty good. They left the audience in the dark on a lot of what was going on, which was pretty cool because they kept us wondering where the show starts in Breaking Bad’s timeline. I didn't know if the first scene with Saul was a flashback or flashforward, then I was confused as to why his name was Jimmy and not Saul... then if this "Chuck" person was even real and he was trying to con those lawyers out of money. They hooked me with this since it's obvious that the person we know in the Breaking Bad series is not the same Saul (yet).
Also, the camera work, sound design, and overall use of the backgrounds was amazing as always. The court scene was especially good with the wheelie cart since it was deathly silent in the room except for the older black attorney wheeling an old TV cart so the jury can see it, and Saul sitting in the background smiling like "don't worry - we're good."
My only worry is that they are going to ride Breaking Bad’s coat tails the entire show – they’ve already started to tie this in especially with the last minute of the show, and I want them to make this its own thing and really focus on the character's origin story and his adventures that got him to become the sleazy lawyer that we all know and love. We will see - It was only the pilot.
