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'm glad they are turning the corner. Soon Saul will be in full swing. I look forward to comparing to JOCO attorneys of the 80's through 2000's

David Gilmores name suddenly comes to mind... Conner? in MO.

It really sucks to see all this great work being done by smart, professional people when you know that one man, Walter White, is going to **** it ALL up.

That opening run showing Jimmy and Kim growing apart without a single ****ing word of dialogue was absolutely amazing filmmaking.

The construction crew story line doesnít do much for me but where Kim and Jimmy are is damn compelling television.

That way they can surreptitiously get data on who the phones get distributed to and what they say on them before coming down on the whole organization.

Now that the drug trade is clued in to the value of burner phones in their enterprise, moving one dude off one street corner isn't going to do shit, except make the next effort to counter the exchanges that much harder.
Eh. I think it was meant as what it was sold as. I donít think most street cops have a passing understanding of how to bring down a drug ring. He just found a dude that was making criminals lives easier and thought he was doing the right thing.

Youíre totally right. But I buy it.

We're talking about an average middle aged cop in 2004. I'd find it less realistic if he was totally up to date on electronic surveillance.
