Better Call Saul



As I am sure many of y'all already know, a spinoff of "Breaking Bad" titled "Better Call Saul" will be airing in 2014. This is going to be a prequel to Breaking Bad and will be based on the character of Saul Goodman from "Breaking Bad."

I, for one, will be watching. I'm sure the majority of all of you other "Breaking Bad" fans will be as well. Might as well get the discussion going sooner rather than later.

So... what are your hopes, expectations and/or concerns with the show? Here are some of mine:

Hopes: I hope to see Saul do his thing in the courtroom. I hope to see strong, unique supporting characters. I hope to see Breaking Bad foreshadowing. I hope he has an intriguing paralegal and/or assistant. I hope to see Breaking Bad characters such as Fring, Mike, etc...whoever. I hope the show kicks ass.

Expectations: I don't expect it to be as good as "Breaking Bad" (because nothing else is, really), but I expect it to be good since Vince Gilligan is writing. I somewhat expect it to have an even balance of comedy and drama...since Saul undeniably provides a substantial amount of comedic relief in "Breaking Bad." I expect to see "courtroom Saul." I expect the "Breaking Bad" references and character cameos to be less than what I hope. If it isn't even a fraction as good as "Breaking Bad," I expect it to be better than 95% of everything else on TV, since there is some shitty shit on TV these days.

Concerns: I'd be a liar if I were to say that I didn't think this show has potential of flopping and certainly failing to meet the presumed high expectations of the audience. Don't get me wrong, I think it will be good... but I think it COULD suck if not executed properly. My main concern is Saul ultimately proving himself to be a "little dab will do ya" type of character, which would lead to a show centered around his character not working out. I am hoping that the character of Saul will not be so over-used and constantly over the top, that he becomes annoying to me, thus ruining his character for me altogether... Not saying I think this will be how it goes down...just saying I think there is a CHANCE of this being the case, which prompts me to believe that a strong supporting cast is VITAL in terms of the amount of success/quality this show will accumulate. All in all, I don't think VG will steer us in an unfortunate direction though...I think they'll pull it off.

Thoughts?

DISCUS!!!!

I completely agree. The fact that Jesse Pinkman knew to "Call Saul" illustrates that Saul had made quite a name for himself in those circles.

I didnt even like BB until later in the 1st season. You really appreciate the character development down the line, even though it seems slow at the time. If you dont want any slow eps, just go watch Criminal Minds where every episode is corny and almost always the same

Can't believe how many are bitching, but call themselves BB fans. I thought the second episode was amazingly fast paced for Vince Gilligan's writing style. I think a great premise has been established; can't wait to see where they take it.

If people don't like the show so far it is because they are a biznatch.

Gilligan is going by the BB playbook.

Create desperation with the main character, show him ****ing up on his first attempt at "Breaking Bad" (and nearly dying), have a scene showing the despair of the main character trying to do things the right way only to have the "Bad" solution being dangled in front of him.

This is going almost exactly like the Walt storyline.

What happened to No-Doze 10 years later was for speaking up out of turn, if I recall. Can't say he hadn't been warned.

Just wondering...is there some informal CP rule for using the 'Spoiler' thing?

I kinda feel like on a weekly show, if you haven't watched it by the next day it aired, you take a risk coming in here.

That's it. Anything AFTER it's aired is fair game.

For something like TWD, most courtesy spoiler anything from the comics.

That seems like an oddly specific quip for it to actually come true. It made me re-think the time line for a second.
Maybe he had an 'in' at Cinnabon and knew he could get a manager gig there?
Just seems weird.
I also recall Saul trying to sell Jesse that same nail shop his office was in to launder his money.

Watch Breaking Bad episode 8. It was an awesome episode from beginning to end.


Saul's introduction.

He even tells Walt his real name is "McGill".
