Just started Better Call Saul. 2 eps in. Not sold yet.

I perhaps should have had a break after watching all 5 seasons of Breaking bad. That sh*t was insane towards the end.

I got half-way through S1 of The man In The High Castle and abandoned it. I think, cos I knew there were three or four seasons, or whatever, you knew the main characters weren't going to get shot by the Gestapo or whatever. Even at that stage it looked a bit baggy. Perhaps I just didn't care enough about the characters.

Just finished the mini series "Thirteen" starring Killing Eve's Jodie Comer. Very confronting series. She is absolutely brilliant.
I have watched it now and found it an awful show. Comer can clearly act but her character must be one of the most annoying in screen history. Natasha Little plays the same annoying mum as she did in War of the Worlds. Then you have the weak husband who leaves his beautiful girlfriend who is half his age. The pantywaist boyfriend of the sister. I finished it because I wanted to know what happened but I had it on fast forward from the middle of ep 2. The last ep was ridiculous.
As if the police would allow a recently released kidnap victim of 13 years to act as bait. Then they lose her in the shopping centre and also are outrun by a transit van. The car that is hit by the van clearly ends up on its roof but in the next shot its on its side.

Eh. I enjoyed it. Though I can understand your criticism as well.

Loved it. Familiar but different. Disgrace it was cancelled just a month after a late October release. Season 2 looked like it was going in interesting places.

Recently finished season 5 of Alone(first season I've watched).

The whole premise of the show, plus the contestants, who were all interesting and engaging, had me enthralled from start to finish. A brilliant show. Highly recommended.

Found 24 on Prime so binged watched the first season in a day and half, can't believe its been nearly 20 years since it aired, was absolutely must see TV every week

But its good to watch old shows and pick up on little things that make so much more sense when you know the twists that are coming.

I can't get into Better Call Saul. 3 eps in and it's doing nothing for me.

Does it get better? Should I stick with it?

It's a very slow show so if you don't like a slow burn then I'd give up now.

It's pretty high quality though, similar to BB but much less action.
