I have mixed feelings on all this. On one hand, cheesy special effects are exactly what none of us wanted. We wanted the old-school feel for a new generation. I don't think we'll be getting that.
On the other hand, the addition of Hulk Hogan automatically makes this a must-watch. This has major potential; both good potential and trainwreck potential. I'm definitely in, whether the end result turns out to be good or not.
When the mighty fall, they fall hard... Two things (other than the continued torture of Jesse) really stood out - First was the phone call to Flynn. I think that will be the scene that wins Cranston the Emmy.
