Thank god for Bob's children!!! Can't imagine if this show never happened. It's as good if not better than Breaking Bad in these last few seasons!!!

This in a way shows how wholesome Bob is. I find it really pure how Bob’s mind is family first, which makes it all the more beautiful his family pushed him to do it. Glad to see him become such a success!

Bob has no idea to this day that his wife enlisted his kids to help close the deal. Ah, marital bliss. Gotta love it. Well, Thank You, Odenkirks! Can’t imagine anyone else pulling off Saul/Jimmy like Bob Odenkirk. A great character brought to life by an exceptional talent.

i want to thank Bob's kids for convincing him to do Better Call Saul. And not just because of Bob, the whole other cast of characters in the series. One of my favorite scenes is when Nacho switches out Hectors about an intense scene.

I had the pleasure of teaching both of Bob's children (long ago). Very nice family. He was always friendly, but, like a lot of funny people, very quite and never funny in person (at least around me.) He's a good guy with a good family. The last time I saw him, I told him I really like the Huell and hoped he'd be returning to Breaking Bad. Bob chuckled and said, "Yeah, he's great." True story!

I don’t care for BCS. It just seemed so weird and far removed from BB. I thought it was going to be Saul’s whacky case of the week instead we got space blankets. I guess because I watched it on AMC in real time it was disappointing that it never really went anywhere and seemed like a lot of filler.

To say Better Call Saul is better then Breaking Bad is to say Vincent Gilligan is such a good content creator that he makes the seemingly mundane and creates such an encompassing cast of character and story it really is the actors equivalent of the you can watch him read the phone book compliment. But really Bob Odenkirk is so good and charismatic I would believe he a real life Saul Goodman, the show really has a great cast of actors and actresses.

Better Call Saul allowed him to really show his acting chops. Who would've thought we could care so much about Saul Goodman?
David پیش 10 روز
This guy is amazing. Sounds like he’s got 2 great, amazing, supportive kids and a supportive wife. I bet Bob is an amazing father and husband. He’s a genius as well as a great family man. A role model. That speaks volume. Someone to look up to. Although, best not to look up when the Chicago sunroof stops by.

Yes very much so. But it is a different tone from Breaking Bad. It’s more reminiscent of 70’s movies where there is a lot of breathing room, and it is a slow burn. But to me, it’s a better show than breaking bad.

@George Hornsby I think BCS is much smarter, the characters are more complex and the cinematography is somehow even better. Just my opinion ofc
JR پیش 10 روز
I get you liking BCS more (I prefer Breaking Bad) but liking it "1000x" more is almost saying you didn't like Breaking Bad.

@Idk Better Call Saul is on another level compared to Breaking Bad and I didn't think that could even be possible. It is a little bit more of a slow burn for the first season or so, but damn such a good show. Really sad its been gone this long. A lot of shows are described as "nuanced," but this might just be the best example of in it in modern TV. Can't wait to see what Vince does after this last season of Better Call Saul. Hopefully its not like what Sutter put out after SOA.
