I hadn't noticed that Netflix added this, that's the next two hours of my Saturday evening sorted.

Nicely done as you'd expect, but much to do about nothing. They could have wrapped up proceedings in about 45 minutes. 6/10.

Agree with most on here, it was certainly enjoyable but does it add anything? I’d have liked more of his life in Alaska with maybe a reason for him to head back to New Mexico.

There was literally no point in that film, Todd took up way too much screen time the bloated goon, If you want nostalgia watch an old episode, we needed something new, Gilligan played it safe and in my opinion failed.

It was closure on the character. We had no idea what happened to him and now we do.

 

The film won't win any awards, but it filled the gap.

Was it needed? Not sure but there would have been a constant call for it and it's a perfectly decent fan service film bringing closure to Pinkman's arc.

Enjoyed it and glad they concluded his character. There is scope for a TV series with him and Saul now.

Yep, this. Can't help but feel it's all set up to conclude Saul this year and then bring Jesse his show next year.

I don't think the character needed closure or any more closure. For me BB finished with him escaping. I'm not sure I get any more closure knowing he got to Alaska than I would with him working in McDonald's on Mexico city or just knowing he got away as we did from BB. I enjoyed the movie, but it hasn't changed anything for me. It just opens the door for a new chapter (especially after him talking the other day about being type cast and moving back to TV from movies)

I enjoyed it anyway. The guy that plays Todd is a decent actor.

He's great. He's come a long way has young Landry Clarke. 

 

Sadly, he was the only bright spot of a really lifeless, elongated film. It wasn't even a film, as such, just a really long episode.

Probably not but I watched it last night anyway. Stand alone it was rubbish but for BB fans it was ok and good to see Jessie's character reprised.

Finally got round to watching El Calmino earlier, struggled through it.

 

Could have been better, didn't really add much and wasn't really needed.

Been rewatching this. First time around I didn't appreciate what a brilliant character Hank is. Charismatic, braggadocios but with subtle weaknesses such as being scared to death of his missus and would do anything for you.

Rewatched it all now.

 

Best show ever for me, even better on second viewing.

 

Just going back through Breaking Bad now myself. Top TV. So many good characters.

I'd forgotten a lot of it.

 

Walt, Jesse, Hank, Saul, Gus, Mike, Tuco are truly great characters. I know people don't like Skyler but she's ace as well and added a lot to the show.

 

I love Better Call Saul but it's not as good as Breaking Bad. It's a shame when that ends, the universe will cease as well.

I'm a big fan of Hector Salamanca too. A proper villain who commands so much respect, even while he's in a wheelchair communicating via a bell.
