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!!!!

Are you talking about the office?

Because that was purposeful. Remember the business cards? Looked like a stock market crash?

I knew it was intended, but I forgot about those cards. I just brought it up because Jimmy said it was the sunset and mountains and my wife didn't notice the W and M.

Didn't Francesca even say that the 'M' was crooked?

Might chide your wife to pay attention.

I noticed Tyrus was in the background in the beginning when Gus and Mike were talking. Just kind of interesting because I think we didn't first see him until towards the end of Breaking Bad.

Mike's shooting ability (and overall plan) seems a little too good to be true.

A big city beat cop, able to shoot a 2" square baggie of drugs through a shoe at easily 400+ yards is fantastic enough, but then expecting to drizzle it onto a vehicle so that drug dogs miles away will signal on it?

Seems like an awful lot of potential for mistakes.

They could have did that differently, but they were trying to force tension.

Is the shot possible? Yes, I do it often. Is it probable for the truck to drive perfectly underneath the shoe, shoot the shoe in the right spot, actually have it spill, and time it just right, etc? Hell no.

True. But even if he fails, there is no harm. And you can try another method. It's a safe, and possibly effective solution.

The only part about that that tripped me up was if you recall his first throw went way into the other lane of traffic. What would he have done if the shoes were all the way in the other lane?

IIRC during an earlier episode when he was talking to his 'gun guy', he made some comment in reference to shooting in a jungle......or something like that.
Anyways, that conversation left me with the impression that Mike had been in Vietnam and was familiar with using a sniper type rifle.

To be fair, the drugs continued to spill after the truck had left, so he had a larger epsilon of time to deal with regarding the timing of everything.

Those drivers writing Mike off as "hunters" so easily is the real travesty here.
