Goofs

Hector Salamanca's "plan" to keep his nephew out of prison makes little sense. Even if Mike were to claim that he was the one who brought the gun, Tuco is stated to be a felon and thus cannot be in possession of a firearm legally for any reason. His sentence would still be significant regardless of Mike's testimony, especially if his prior crimes were violent.

Additionally, the federal government has often stepped in to prosecute drug offenders who are caught with weapons. Given the fact that the ABQ police know Tuco to be a serious player in the local drug scene as well as a violent ex-con, they might be just as likely to turn his prosecution over to the feds as they are to lower the charges against him.

The first episode sure piqued my interest. Here's why:
12 February 2015 | by ducks-ruleSee all my reviews

Watching the first episode of 'Better call Saul' just plunges you right back into the world of 'Breaking Bad'. If you watched the latter of course, nostalgia will be an inevitable delicacy. I do hope that it will unfold as greatly as its father and though not walk in breaking bad's path of making you love a narcissistic anti-hero, this one will prove to be of quite the same flavor. To top it off, feels good seeing old faces. I just wonder if they have in mind to converge it with the breaking bad time-line which would be just plain awesome.

it sure seems that Saul and Walter are opposite sides to the same coin.

Bob Odenkirk's acting is as always genuine and just awesomely good, for those of you who watched Fargo, the series, you'd know he is fairly versatile and to up the task of being the main character of his own series.

Do note that Better Call Saul is utterly different from your traditional law drama. To top it off, feels good seeing old faces.
