Guessed what was going to happen as soon as he mentioned he couldn't pass the air time on, but it was still great to see it :wub:

"Never seen so many star wipes in a row" :lol:

Feel bad for Nacho, Hector going to strawberry float his dad's legit business. I'm guessing he's going to suggest poisoning hector with those pills. If he drops them then not enough to kill but enough to cripple... :nod:

Lydia :dread:

The laundry place :datass:

Cool seeing the guy walt eventually chains up in the basement too. "...or are you going to stick me with that plate?"

This show :wub:

It was great to see the beginnings of Saul coming through, the laundry building and Lydia. They were showing so much stuff, I was half expecting Hank to pop up. :lol:

I am not sure if they have confirmed what year BCS is set before, but they pretty much did in the scene with Howard and Chuck (Chuck :x ), Howard said that 1966 bottle was 35 years old, meaning we are in or around 2000/2001/2002. Do we know what year Breaking Bad started in, it might tell us how much of this story is left before the end.

I still can’t believe I made it through the whole of Breaking Bad without realising that Saul Goodman was “S’all good man!”. :fp:

He is still working in advertising in 1994 onwards before he goes back to being a lawyer

It's possible that Howard was referring to year it was bottled and not the year they opened it.

Eh? The bottle had "1966" on it and Howard said it was 35 years old.

But when was Breaking Bad set?

BCS is set in 2002 and Jimmy has just been banned from the law for a year. Saul in BB seemed pretty established and well known as a lawyer so I would imagine we are a good few years away from catching up with BB. Which is good news as I don't want this show to end anytime soon.

Not really. They were around from the mid/late 90s all the way up to the early 2010s.

Yes....

It's possible that the year it was bottled is 2001. It was in oak barrels for 35 years. It stops ageing when it's bottled.

Does that help?

I know nothing about the bottling of wine and spirits and it sounds boring as hell.

So yeah it helped. ;)

It's in Jimmy/Saul's future but that's probably in our past.

Breaking Bad was set in 2008 to I think 2010 from Walt's birthday breakfasts.

Cheers.

I guess that means we have quite a lot of BCS left, unless they do a big jump forward in time.

Just binged watched the first two seasons of this over the last few nights, absolutely fantastic television. It was always going to be special coming from the BB team but I'm still blown away by what they've managed to pull off.

It's connected to BB and obviously similar in many ways in terms of some of the themes and production but they've managed to make it stand alone and be it's own, truly wonderful creation.

Starting S3 tonight, I'm assuming we finally meet Fring and that's who left the note for Mike?

Also, although there's a lot to love about Jimmy, I can't help but feel that Chuck is pretty justified in what he's done so far. Jimmy is a bit of a dick, has a past as a criminal, has continued to break the law since supposedly "going straight", and has done some real gooseberry fool in the past like stealing thousands of dollars from their father causing him to lose his business and ultimately contributing to his death, and despite all this Chuck has continually had to witness people fall under Jimmy's spell and end up getting hurt. Team Chuck all the way!

I am not telling you who left the note, but you are in for a treat with S3. It's been absolutely wonderful.

The only people on Team Chuck are Chuck, Howard and you. Get the strawberry float out of this thread.

Chuck. :x

It's a testament to the writing and acting that once again the person who's technically in the right is the recipient of the hatred. I can't stand Chuck and have wanted to see his comeuppance the whole way through but I'm well aware that Jimmy is actually in the wrong overall.
