I'm rewatching the show in preparation for the final season which begins on April 18th, and I must say it is an absolute masterpiece. The character development, the cinematography, and the writing - Amazing.

 Personally I can't wait to see how they weave the story in to the Breaking Bad timeline. It has been somewhat of a slow burn, but definitely turning in to more of a thriller like its predecessor. Can't wait.

I'm doing the same thing. One thing I didn't notice the first time I watched it is what an extraordinary bad guy Tony Dalton (Lola Salamanca) is.

A major talent. Hollywood should figure out something to do with him.

Brilliant show.  Agree with all your analysis.  I'm a big fan of Michael McKean and he was fantastic as Jimmy's brother.  I didn't know the show was set to begin a final season - really looking forward to it.  With all the decent shows I've seen over the last few years I'd say Saul tops them all.

Upset with this being the final season. It is hard to say goodbye to Ozark, too, but at least they are breaking the last season into two. I don't do a good job rewatching series, so when it's done, it's usually done for me. Either way, I'm really looking forward to the new Saul!

Show got really good. I'll have to revisit it myself in anticipation for the final season. The storyline was Sol's brother and his illness dragged out a bit, but since then the show has been through the roof.

If anyone wants an awesome recap of the series with less commitment, this YouTube is pretty darn good. I'll link season 5 but he does them all:

Awesome show.  I just started rewatching the entire series to catch my girlfriend up.  I wouldn't be rewatching it by myself though.

An all-time favorite. Iím going to wait until the new season is done and then go through the whole series again.

When Saul finishes, itíll have more total episodes than Breaking Bad did.

It's All Good, Man!  Definitely one of my favorite shows.  If you are not familiar with the show, the lead character changed his name to Saul Goodman and took the name from it's all good, man.

I don't disagree that the brother storyline wasn't a highlight, but I think McKean is a terrific, versatile actor, so it made the character and storyline a little better for me.   I have a hard time watching reruns so I think I'll do the recaps -- thanks for the link!

My goodness. It shocked me. Brilliant writing.
Can't wait for the rest of this series.

 I think Season 5 catapulted the show to top 5 of all time discussion,  and thatís almost been problematic, for me at least, because this season so far has been somewhat of a letdown. Thereís been a lot of filler, almost overly detailed. I enjoy this world so Iím not going to complain too much I enjoyed how D day came together, but the endingÖ

HmmÖ wish there was a spoiler warning in the OP, not sure how far I should go here. Iíll give it a week
