So I'm assuming we've all seen BB, I wonder if someone who has never seen BB would find this show as good as those who have? Do we derive more enjoyment from the show because we essentially know where it's headed or are familiar with the characters? Anybody have a friend whose taste they trust that has never seen BB but would be willing to watch BCS? SA, you're prohibited as your taste, generally speaking, is shit. As to your defense of "Well it can't be that bad since I like this show" my rebuttal is sun shines on a dog's ass some days.

The show is good enough on it's own to be liked by anyone. But people that haven't seen BB will never like it as much as those that have. There's just too much extra information that non-BB watchers are going to miss out on to get the full experience.

I love some of the little tie ins to Breaking Bad.

The stock broker who they scammed out of the expensive Tequila in Season 2 was the same obnoxious guy with the "KENWINS" license plate from season 1 episode 3 of Breaking Bad who pissed off Walt by taking his parking spot and then Walt set his car on fire at the gas station.

That was also the same tequila that Gus poisoned Don Eladio (sic) with in Season 4 of BB.

My wife pretty much refuses to watch BB. I've been trying to get her to watch BCS, because I think she'd like it. I got her to watch that early season scene with Mike on the couch at his daughter-in-law's place, because I just thought it was superbly acted. I'll try to get her to watch some more, because I've wondered the same thing.

I think it's enjoyable. The show is a really deep psychological dive, on a character that, though I loved, was kinda one dimensional on BB. Mike was more filled out on BB, but I don't think you have to have seen BB, to appreciate it. If you haven't seen BB, you might be shocked at how violent some parts in the future will get.
