I like movies that are aware of what they are selling... without [any] greater aspirations than to make people laugh and that's it.
The performances transcend the film's tropes, grounding it in characters that feel more complete than this subgenre often produces.
By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.
This could have been a very good series. Instead it is like a house guest who doesn't know when it's time to go home. Three seasons in and the material could have been covered in six episodes. They are just dragging this thing out forever. Just because you have a TV series with ten episodes of 44 minutes (or whatever it is) doesn't mean you can just show someone walking for a minute. Tell a story. Tell stories. Literally, every scene is too long. How could someone write this? Stop wasting our time.If you examine this series you would have to agree that they drag almost every scene along to absurd lengths. Do they realize that you don't actually have to show someone on camera walking across a street, for example? You can just show the person taking a step in that direction and then cut. In the next cut you can show them on the other side. Basic film making. This is a problem with many series and feature films. They have no idea of how much time they need to tell their particular story. I can't count how many feature films I have seen recently that go well beyond the standard 90 minutes, and for no real reason. Netflix cranks out lots of bad movies that go two hours that could be trimmed to 45 minutes, easily. This show is one of the worst (best?) examples of feet dragging. It's excruciating to watch.Just watch the first scene in the first episode of Season 4. It clocks in at a bit over eight minutes. It tells us very, very little. Eight minutes is an eternity. Most comedy series clock in at 22 minutes for an entire episode so thus scene would have been more than a third of a show. This is only one example and I could list dozens and dozens of this same wasting of time.I wish that I knew exactly how much screen time was spent agonizing over Hector Salamanca's heart pills. Jesus, talk about extreme over-kill.
When coming over to Imdb to catch up on where BCS ended back in 2017,I was immediately hit with a spoiler for the new season. Love the show. Hate this website.
Been a fan of Odenkirk since Larry Sanders. He really came into his own on Breaking Bad. Super happy for him that he finally got a leading role. He does a great job. The whole cast is great.
Leave well enough alone please. Dragging Cranston and paul into the show diminishes what these characters have developed without the two from BB. Yes BB was a great show - in the time. BCS is a great show too - let each stand on the merits, It's not synergistic, the BB crew has gone on to other things and their memory on BB has changed. It will not contribute to the great Saul and his fantastic group of actors.This is akin to the guy who played high school football now brags about it like it is as current as it is in his memory.BCS has evolved nicely. It's comfortable, entertaining, and the actors are great.
The error in BB was keeping paul alive when walter white should have been more the loner against the odds. Now to bring back the characters would tarnish both the memory of BB and the future of BCS.Leave Saul alone.
