    To be fair, it didn't really get started until season 3

    First two seasons were dull I thought, but soldiered on watching (at night shift at work, so had little else to do) and really got to like in season 3. But not a top score from me over all.

    I just sit back and enjoy the ride as the story has unfolded.
    Good and indifferent episodes always happen on projects of this magnitude.
    I have really enjoyed the whole ride so far.

    I struggled with season one. Such a slow and bleak start.
    However I did try it again from the start and pushed through, and my GHod it was worth it.

    The writing style is slow, but that really adds to the impact when you just do not see something big coming. It’s very clever and well constructed.

    Better Call Saul is even more so. Sometimes I’m bored brickless, then the story arcs come together and you are just like OMG!

    It's like the book American Psycho by Brett Easton Ellis. First 200 pages are boring as fudge. Nothing but descriptions of double buttoned or single buttoned suits, fonts and styles of business cards and so on. And the suddenly it explodes with bestial and macabre murders.

    The first time I became aware of Dinklage was in the The Station Agent, which I watched back when DVD rental by post was the biggest threat to Blockbuster.
