In case you're unaware, Better Call Saul was released after Breaking Bad ended and it's a prequel about the lawyer in the show. It too is a great show.
Great - I'll make a point of watching it next. Thanks!

It's quite gripping but very bleak. It reminds me rather of Ozark.

"Breaking Bad" is my second favorite show of all-time, sandwiched between "The Sopranos" and "The Americans." But in many ways, I enjoy "Better Call Saul" as much, if not more than BB. The writing and directing is superb on both shows, but there is a more human element contained within BCS.

I just watched the penultimate episode of BCS last night and bittersweet to watch the series finale next week.

"Disturbing" is a fitting word here. "Trainwreck" is what the producers came up with. It just feels like a wake-up call. Documented. For all to see. A nightmare waiting to happen.

Woodstock '99 happened just prior to the first Coachella festival. Talk about your opposites in how to manage a festival. I attended Coachella for 14 consecutive years (2004-2017), and with the exception of 2010 (their first year with wristbands, instead of tickets), it was extremely well run (venue, vendors, lineup, set times, parking, water availability, etc.).

BTW, I saw 10-17 artists (full or split sets; avg 14-15/day) during my 36 days spent in the desert. That's over 500 artists performing live music (inc. repeats). Some of the best weekends of my life.
