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!!!!

But I do think that part of the draw of the show is ambiguities of this nature. They do solid work laying the foundations for characters, then a subsequent single revelation can throw everything ass over teakettle.

I'm in DJNL's camp on Howard being fairly straightforward and forthright, but the possibility that he has a hidden agenda is part of the allure of the narrative.
Part of what might have me thinking that is a trailer where Kim appears to be really really pissed at Howard about something. Made me wonder what would make her that mad. Whatever it is I think it's because Howard has pulled off something really shitty.

Just glad this season is finally on.

Not sure what you are talking about. I think I've seen most promos/clips/previews and I don't recall a pissed Kim snippet. Do you have a still, or a clip with a timestamp?

No, I think it was a short snippet slid in during a commercial break.

Howard's a great character. Pure douchebag to the core but has that tiny bit of humanity that makes him bearable.

I DO NOT BELIEVE: "that said there's a strong point to symbolism and, oddly, pedophellia in the new (not in Breaking Bad) present."

I'm a big fan of 'Call Saul, but it IS there. So all you conspiracy nuts back off.

I can't wait until the next season drops so me and the wife can binge watch it.
