I've enjoyed it a lot so far. They apparently have like 80% of the Breaking Bad crew working on this, so they should actually be able to maintain this level of quality too.

My prediction is that I will watch every episode before it gets cancelled at the end of the first season.

That was 7 months ago, isn't that kind of like a college recruit "committing" to a school in his junior year. Everything looks sexy until the weekend before signing day. Besides, I forgot to mention I suck at predictions.

The style of the opening scene from episode 2 could have been from Breaking Bad.

"And let's really have some fun with it!"

The best thing that could happen to the "Team Kettle" kids would be for their parents to go to prison for a very long time.

I haven't seen the last episode yet, but from the last two it was hard to see what direction the whole thing is going in, and whether the character is strong enough to sustain an entire series. He was light relief in BB more than anything, but I suppose it was one of those shows that was dominated totally by one amazing performance. I can't help feeling slightly sorry for the woman who played Hank's wife in BB, because she had almost no character at all, and the bit where they tried to make her somewhat interesting was a total failure. That was my one real criticism of the show, that most of the non-villainous characters were under-developed

I am probably being dim, but what was the deal of 'earthing' himself when he went to his brother's house? Is it some home-grown cancer treatment that I know nothing about? The answer is probably so obvious that I have embarrassed myself.

The reason for grounding/earthing onself has not been explained.  Maybe Chuck is nuts, maybe he's one of those rare people affected strongly by electromagnetic radiation.

yes.  hank's wife, walter jr., just horrible characters.  walt jr. was the worst by far, though.  i wanted to beat him with his walking stick.

i think he's suffering from electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

There is some issue that has caused Mckeon's character from returning to work. Hence the scene where McGill(Saul) requests his brother's part of the firm be bought out. Then we see Mckeon's character in a house without electricity and Saul putting all his electrical devices in the mail box. I would guess Mckeon's character is delusional but still able to present as somewhat normal.

Maybe he spent too much time with Squiggy.  Maybe Shirley cast a spell.

Lenny and the Squigtones--about the only thing I ever liked about Laverne and Shirley, and that's not saying much.

I'm glad nobody else seems to really know either. I thought there was something I had missed; I imagine we will find out before too long, I just hope it has something interesting to do with the plot. I wonder if it is a show that has it mapped out from the beginning and knows where it is all headed, or they will be like Dexter and make most of it up as they go along? I used to be a fan of that show but it fell apart after two or three seasons when you could expect almost anything to happen. The last straw for me was the total waste of Peter Weller in one season, when they got him in the cast but didn't have a clue what to do with him.

I don't know who runs AMC but they have a very odd attitude towards language and violence. You can watch people being chewed to death and decapitated in the most gruesome ways on The Walking Dead or, as in BB, watch someone having their throat slit with a box cutter and then slowly bleed to death. The bosses say, ''that's all fine, but don't let me catch you saying 'fuck'.''

That makes more sense. For some reason, when Saul was discussing him in the office with the lawyers, I thought Chuck had a fatal illness, and the 'earthing' was connected to a wacky way of curing himself. I have no idea why I  thought that, but it's hard to know at the moment who anyone is, or what they are all up to, so it is no surprise that a lot of guesswork is involved.

BB loves to tease, doesn't it? The whole of the last season started with a colossal tease where you didn't know what Walter was up to at the beginning and wondered how it all was going to go in the end. Maybe it was because they set it all up so much at the beginning that the ending felt like a disappointment.

They probably had plans for them at some stage in the beginning, but it would have been too hard to get rid of them so they stuck around like furniture without anything to contribute. I think Jesse was only supposed to last a short while but they liked him so much they made him a major character, so it can go both ways. Sklyar suffered from Lois Lane syndrome; we are supposed to believe that she is so stupid that she can't see what is staring her in the face. That said, I don't think many people really get much attention when Cranston is on the screen, he does rather dominate whenever he is on.

Every episode better than the previous one. Okay, it might last past the spring.
