Default AMC's Better Call Saul

Well boys and girls, Breaking Bad is over now, leaving us depressed and frustrated. Maybe a spin-off to the awesome BB can heal our wounds.




It’s a good bet that the subject matter won’t be nearly as dark or gruesome as that of Breaking Bad, but judging from Odenkirk's character, it could be fun.
No further details have emerged yet, aside that Vince Gilligan along with writer Peter Gould will helm the project and it is in consideration, that the show will be an hour-long format.

Guess we have to wait what comes next. At least the merchandise machinery is already on:

I'm looking forward to this.

He's a great character and there's potential for a lot of good stories.

I'm curious as to what tone they are aiming for. A mixture of drama and comedy would be good.

Yes, let's get this rolling! I need my Breaking Bad fix.

In all seriousness, though, I have a feeling the tone won't shift away too much from Breaking Bad's. It's probably going to have more humor, that's true, but I think it's going to be handled in the same way BB handled it. By which I mean, not overtly wrought. More subtle and underplayd a bit, if you will. Like Odenkirk played Saul, basically.

I am as well. Saul's a character I'm not sure would entirely work with straight drama, but then again - His final scenes on the show were pretty damn emotional so perhaps they could pull it off. We'll have to see I suppose.

It can only be a comedy right? I can't really see Saul in a Law & Order type of show...just pure cheesy comedy baby

Note to self:Buy a better call Saul shirt!

Maybe it's been mentioned and I just missed it but it just dawned on me that this show will more than likely mark the return of Mike, if it's a prequel he aint dead no mo

It would be awesome if they brought back Skinny Pete, Badger and Wendy.
