In some of the wide shots of throughout the series, it's clear that the Albuquerque is the one that exists from 2015 and later rather the one which existed in the early 2000s. There are homes in areas which were vacant in 2003 and there buildings missing which have been torn down in the interim. See more »

OK, i appreciate it's hard to judge any new series after just one episode, but with Better Call Saul, we already have the benefit of what went before with Breaking Bad & we can instantly relate to the protagonist. As far as opening episodes go, this ticked all the boxes, it gave us just enough information to make us want to see more, & introduced Saul brilliantly.
From start to finish, we get to see how the shady lawyer from Breaking Bad came to be, from dodgy deals, to creating stress for himself, it's always been in a days work for him it seems.
Anyway for an opening episode this gets an 8 from me, but going forwards, the show looks to have enough promise to put it alongside some of the best.
