    Without a doubt my favourite TV series of all time. Usually even if I like watching a series I can live without it, not worried if I have a break and catch up later or even miss an episode. Not with Breaking Bad ... I was hooked! It was the meth of TV shows, I felt a little lost when it ended and nothing has been able to replace it, it was an absolutely genius show!

    The good guy in me held out the whole time hoping that Walter might be able to save himself somehow, whilst thoroughly enjoying watching him charge full speed in to oblivion.
    There was a little tease in May by Bryan Canston that we might not have seen the last of Walter White. While the last series beautifully dusted several characters and their story lines, Walter and Jesse survived the Finale.

    2015 & 2016 will bring Better Call Saul, could this prequel be a way of keeping the fans interested whilst possibly setting up some further plots lines for another Breaking Bad style show ... perhaps following Walt and Jesse post Breaking Bad? Here’s hoping!!

    This is like the best show ever. I've seen it 3 times now and it just keeps getting better.

    Walter is one of the best anti-heroes in TV, ever. He might be a murderous, exploitative, drug-dealing narcissist but he still somehow manages to remain likable. His somewhat unwilling sidekick, Jesse, is also one of the best TV characters I've encountered, along with Mike and Saul (so glad they're in a new series).

    The Wire is the only show I've seen that can come close to being as good as Breaking Bad. It's the perfect combination of good writing, addictive plot, beautiful cinematography, and amazing acting.

    I don't watch TV or movies much, but Breaking Bad was awesome. I watched the first few episodes of Better Call Saul, but until I can easily watch the entire series I'll wait.

    Same here really, I only occasionally watch a film, never really sit down to watch TV. Breaking Bad though, 2 episodes and I was hooked! I didn't discover it until the final series, so pretty much watched it start to finish over a few months.
    Haven't had a chance to watch better call Saul yet.

    Looks like Better Call Saul series is expected to be on Netflix in Jan/Feb 2016.
