Better Call Saul > Breaking Bad

I disagree but "Ok"

 No.499640

i like better call saul, especially the last seasons, but I found it kinda boring. Breaking bad is a wild ride from start to finish, with crazy stuff happening all the time. you pay for the whole seat but you only need the edge with breaking bad

Better call saul ending was really stupid and gay
>i am le bad guy, i deserve to suffer
Walt had that feeling in the second to last episode but redeemed himself
Imagine the good saul could have done if he spent his money well

What? But he got caught, and his only option was to go to prison. And I don't think he had any significant amount of money at the end, considering he had to escape and start again.

When did he give money to the police? I don't remember this

He crashed his car in the playground and the cops took all his money
This was after he was throwing bulks of cash out of his car window

Breaking bad had its moments
But after rewatching a lot of clips, it had SO MUCH melodrama that would put me off with any new show i would be watching now
I think if the show didnt have a season 5 it would mostly be forgotten too
Season 5 held everything together

You can tell the creatives behind BCS are more mature storytellers than with BrBa, which is kind of funny since Jimmy is a much sillier character than Walt. BrBa was a lot more dramatic and had a lot more ebin memes but BCS definitely eclipses it in terms of the depth of the character studies. Walt and maybe Jesse are the only exceptions where you could argue BrBa did a better job than the characters in BCS. BrBa has more explosions though.

i stopped watching breaking bad around the 4th season because i stopped caring about the characters
i get bored by tv dramas easily, though

All these shows are just "le asshole genius white man lives out his personal hero's journey at the expense of others, gets away with everything".
They're a vehicle for dejected whitoid underachievers to live out their sigma male fantasies.

Except for Sopranos, which is a genuine criticism of this archetype. And the MC dies in agony at the end.

im glad im not a racialist and can actually enjoy watching shows without moaning and moralizing

 No.502926

Nothing happens at the end of Sopranos though

it's not really intentionally a vehicle for that kind of stuff i dont think, but walter white is a very fantastical character yeah
the bigger criticism is that it's a very over-the-top conservative take on the drug industry with very fantastical elements
there are moments that hint at how the drug industry is really just part and parcel of life under modern capitalism, but they're just hints and it's really not that deep to say that capitalists that produce and sell drugs are capitalists
there are parts that kind of feel like subtle racism

 No.502950

I dropped the show shortly after Nacho died. Idk, the cartel shit was much more interesting than Sauls wacky shenanigans.

As for Breaking Bad, it peaked in second season when it was fully about Walt and Jesse trying to figure out how to run a meth business. The last season was the worst, I felt the transformation of Walter in full-blown villain was too abrupt. For four season he was forced into increasingly morally questionable acts by circumstances, there was never much of a choice on his part, and then season 5 comes and he decided he is going to be evil now.

i dont think you watched better call saul and walter isnt presented as a hero either especially in the latter half

He's not presented as a hero but the show still basically makes you empathise with him, otherwise people would stop watching. A movie can have a villain protagonist because it's like 2 hours long but you can't make people watch a bad guy they're supposed to hate for like 3 seasons

the most annoying type of person regardless of politics is one who willfully misreads media they dont like in order to make a point about how its immoral and damaging society lol
