The first few teasers didn't do much for me, but latest one looks good.

Does anyone know if this will also be shown next day (like Breaking Bad) on Netflix UK?

Same. They finally hit the right tone with that trailer.

I've had high hopes for a while so I'm pleased to see the first real trailer looks promising.

"Airing on Netflix UK ‘shortly’ after the US!" says Geektown. Surely it's the next day.

Sweet! I need some good TV to start of the new year. I also think this is how, going forward, international TV programmes should be shown.

Better Call Saul Review: The Last Hurrah of Difficult Men

The Saul Goodman series starts out already better than Breaking Bad.

I'm going to assume that that's hyperbole until I can see it for myself.

Twenty nights in the ice is a long time, when there's Hostiles On The Hill.

Reviews

If I began watching "Better Call Saul!" as a skeptic, the first three episodes have mostly made me a believer. There are nods to the parent show — and those are among the more emotionally affecting parts of this young series — but "Saul" quickly learns to function as its own thing. B+

http://www.hitfix.com/whats-alan-watchi ... th-promise

Better Call Saul is a nifty and promising comic noir, but it also allows you to ponder certain missed opportunities. 3/4

http://www.slantmagazine.com/tv/review/ ... season-one

Like Saul himself, its identity is a work in progress. The energetic visual storytelling engages, but the deliberate pacing left me restless. B

http://www.ew.com/article/2015/01/21/better-call-saul

For now, I simply tried to measure Saul by the yardstick: would I want to watch this show if I knew none of the references, none of the characters’ back stories? I was a doubter. But for now, Saul, or should I say Jimmy, has fast-talked me into believing. B

http://time.com/3686699/better-call-saul-review/

Can Saul compete with Walter White? No. But he doesn't have to. Better Call Saul posses one simple, but fascinating question: What happened to Jimmy McGill that forced him to transform himself into the ruthless, hardened, yet entirely entertaining *criminal* lawyer Saul Goodman? The man that we came to know and love on Breaking Bad. I, for one, look forward to watching that story unfold.

Does the highly anticipated Breaking Bad spinoff deliver? In a word: yes. 8.7/10

http://uk.ign.com/articles/2015/02/03/b ... 4e5a00004c

I'll keep watching, of course. But there are times, truth be told, when "Saul" seems a little too much like its lead character: Slick, smart, desperate, driven to please and a little bit afflicted by flop sweat. 60%

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/2 ... 33958.html

Indeed, it seemed pretty obvious going in that this spinoff promised to be a narrower concept – and unlike “Breaking Bad,” the show won’t have the luxury of sneaking up on anybody. For now, “Saul” contains some attractive elements, fine moments and a fabulous pedigree, but even Jimmy/Saul might be forced to concede the jury’s still out in terms of proving it has the right formula. 60%

Better Call Saul Review: The Last Hurrah of Difficult Men

The Saul Goodman series starts out already better than Breaking Bad.

http://www.esquire.com/blogs/culture/be ... aul-review

No show in my tenure at Grantland has inspired so many readers to reach out with one straightforward question: Is it any good? In the spirit of justice — a concept that Saul Goodman holds dear, though not nearly as dear as his billfold — let me address it right at the top. Yes. It is. Very, very good.
