so season 1 of Better Call Saul just released on the Netflix app. I'm pretty certain i'm going to love it, but on a scale of 1 to 10 what score would you give it? this is probably going to be a case of when i wait to watch a free show on netflix for the first season and then end up loving it so much i buy the next season's episodes (e.g. Rectify, The Knick).

10. so much better than it has any right to be. i expected to love it because it has bob odenkirk and is related to breaking bad things, but it's a legitimately great show on its own two feet.

Yeah. I figured just due to Bob and the people involved and the world it was set in it would be a fun little spinoff that went 2-3 seasons. It ended up being so damn great I want it to last as long as BB.

Two episodes into Angie Tribeca and I'm loving it, but like it was said, I'm not sure a full season of slapstick comedy will keep being this funny. I like it now but I can already tell I may tire of it by episode 5 or 6. Hoping I'm wrong.

Funny you say that because I think episodes 6 & 7 were my favorites, and I liked 6-10 better than 1-5 as a whole.

Better Call Saul was as good as I hoped and as good as you all said - thank you! And my prediction was correct that I'll end up buying the season 2 episodes because I simply cannot fathom knowing there are new episodes to watch and not watching them.

Basic cable is included with my HOA and I really just can't see me ponying up the money for the cable box/DVR because I watch so much on NF/Hulu/Showtime/HBO/etc. streaming. And, of course during the summer my free hours of TV during the week are dedicated to the Cubs. But damn if it wouldn't have been nice to have season 2 DVR'ed knowing I would probably love the show and roll right into those after the next two episodes.

Last night's episode of SNL was so fun that I didn't even care some trust fund kid and the band his parents bought him (actually, I liked the bandmates, not the singer) was blowing chunks trying to be Justin Hawkins and many other better lead singers.

I don't know what the consensus on this SNL cast is, but I like them - especially Cecily Strong.

So, new show runners for The Muppets and it's painfully not funny now. Good job

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.
