    I thought Breaking bad went on too long , Better call Saul is going the same way but it's better , more characters and story line .

    chartz If it’s broke fix it!

    Equally excellent. But wait till you’ve finished BB!

    I loved Breaking Bad, but IMO Better Call Saul is better. It's slower paced but much more interesting.

    Just watched Season 5 of Better Call Saul, it was outstanding and the best of the seasons so far....My preference is still BB but the final season next year should be good

    "Knives Out", on Prime. Great cast; Daniel Craig puts on a hilarious southern USA accent, which works really well in the context of his character. Really funny and entertaining with lots of twists to the plot. And Jamie Lee Curtis, still looking fab.

    SteveS1 I heard that, pardon?

    This. Slow start but develops into a much more interesting series than BB.

    For the richness of the story telling and art direction Better Call Saul ranks amongst the finest series tv I can recall. Clearly made with so much care and humour, and the acting is spot on. Breaking Bad was an enjoyably breathless run through dissolution - BCS is a leisurely stroll through the fading American Dream.

    Both excellent but seeking to do different things. (El Camino on the other hand looked ill conceived.)

    'Knives Out' would be easy to overlook, but it is a cracking film.

    Craigs accent adds to the tongue-in-cheek aspect I reckon.

    One of the best films we have seen this year.

    There’s a really good film on Talking Pics tonight, 9pm, ‘The Friends of Eddie Coyle’. Stars Robert Mitchum as low level crook, set in Boston, early 70s, really good supporting cast.

    I agree, they're both fabulous in their different ways, and I love them both. For the most brilliant character in a series, I nominate Chuck McGill in Better Call Saul.

    Hook Blackbeard's former bo'sun.

    With his tin foil hat, Chuck would have fit in well here! :D

    Now on Netflix - Connected. Entertaining new show about the interconnections between various aspects of science and nature.

    I found it hard not to binge all of the episodes at once!

    The second series of the Umbrella Academy on Netflix is rather good.

    It's a darkly humorous take on the superhero genre.

    I was quite disappointed and worked out who and how dunnit within minutes.

    It was also overlong.

    A lot of wasted talent IMHO.

    And I usually love these kind of things!
