So NPR had a review of Better Call Saul on Fresh Air today and I listened during the commute.

http://www.npr.org/2015/02/04/383785664 ... -the-first

The reviewer was really high on it and said it's just about as good as BB. He also said it's a no brainer not to hesitate to watch even if you missed BB. Which was my question since I am planning to watch BB 'soon' (this summer?) and didn't know if I should skip BCS until after BB.

Thoughts?

While I'm sure you COULD watch this cold and it'll be fine... I'd watch the 62 of BB first, and then watch these 10... These have a short window to get to Netflix - you won't have to wait for them... You'll be caught up for Season 2 this time next year...

Would you want somebody to see Star Wars 1-3 BEFORE 4-6? Won't I enjoy Caprica more if I watch it AFTER Battlestar Galactica?

The Twin Peaks movie is 98% prequel, but people should DEFINITELY watch the series first...

Also, we'll likely discuss some BB spoilers in here, so, like, go away until you're cooler by having gone through BB... (ha...)

I'll have a non-spoiler mini-review of #1 in the Watching thread...

My vote is that you could watch this first but I'm not as much of a purist as some people around here.

:D

P.S.--But why haven't you commented on The Americans yet, KMI?

I'm torn on being social Sunday night - friend's birthday gathering/screening-of-TWD-return at a bar, or staying at home and watching it and BCS in more comfortable surroundings....

Doing a double-feature of Justified and Americans tomorrow after work...

Three behind on Broadchurch now. Oops...

I can't wait to watch. Probably won't watch it live but the next day I'm sure but tempted not to wait. The buzz has been crazy for this show. I haven't seen one review that isn't positive.

Dax, I would go to the gather and watch TWD and then run home right afterwards and watch BCS. Best of both world ... how needs sleep anyways. ;)

Yeah. Monday's job is a 7:30 start, though... We'll see how I feel on Sunday... haven't decided. I'd like to see my friends, but...

I expect there will be people who don't like the show, because they'll wish it was something else instead, like The Further Adventures of Jesse, and won't be able to get past that.

But I'll be shocked if *I* don't love it, for sure...

I think I will like it a lot. I don't want to compare it to BB.
