Are We All Watching The Same Show?????


I belong to a fan group on Facebook for the show Better Call Saul. If you don''t know, it is a prequel to Breaking Bad. Better Call Saul follows Jimmy McGill, a.k.a. Saul Goodman, before the Breaking Bad timeline.

The show is not really going to make much sense to those that did not watch Breaking Bad. The development of the characters will just confuse people. If one had watched Breaking Bad, then the characters and their development make much more sense because you already know the ending. What you don't know is the beginning. In Breaking Bad, the writer/creator, Vince Gilligan only gave us glimpses of the characters focused on in Better Call Saul.

So I read the posts and comments. Some people have a really thorough understanding of the characters. Then you have the people that have never seen Breaking Bad and have no clue of what is taking place and 5 seasons of Breaking Bad has to be explained over and over again plus the first 2 seasons of Better Call Saul. Then there are those that are posting shit that is just their wishful thinking and none of their thoughts are in line with the characters' development.

So I ask, are we all watching the same show? It actually is sad that these people do not get it at all. Imagine watching the last installment of the Star Wars Saga and never had watched any previous movies. How would you know what is going on or who these people are and their significance to the story.? I actually bought my nephews the entire Star Wars Saga so that when the new movies came out they would understand what is going on and who the characters are.

Can I just start choking people? Should I go back to working in a prison so I can be hurtfully sarcastic? I'm starting to miss that part of me.

Oh well, at least I know I'm paying attention.

At least you have the self awareness. I'm sure those folks do the same thing on other forums about other shows. And...it sounds like they don't like the show if they're complaining about it etc. Then why keep watching?
