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!!!!

All of the acting is top notch on this show, but Michael McKean is absolutely killing it as Chuck.

I think both Jimmy and Chuck are too old. Jimmy less so. Didn't mind his age in BB. But this is earlier. Chuck looks like he should be retired. He looks 70 or over. Acting is great though.

Really? I'm thinking mid 50's for Chuck and late 30's for Jimmy/Saul.

I would say Chuck is mid 50's and Jimmy at 33 or so.

Finally got around to starting this series and after 2 episodes I'm already hooked. Looks like it's gonna be good. Haven't read the thread for fear of spoilers.

Yep.
I want to say Better than Breaking Bad... but that show was sooo long ago, I can't confidently make that judgement.

All I know is that this show looked stupid during it's initial PR move but once I watched it... it's really really really good.

Better Call Saul seems a bit more refined. Probably just with more experience. Also there is no Wheel Chair Bald guys chasing rocks her his **** a licious wife stealing trinkents.

I've been giving serious thought to rewatching BB again. I don't think Saul is quite there yet...but it is so very very good!

your PR comment hits spot on with me. I remember actually being pissed off after seeing the first few things they put out there thinking they were gonna make it some stupid comedy. I HATE when they do that! like Starsky and Hutch...I really dug that show when I was a kid....thanks for the bullshit movie. but I digress...Saul is REALLY good.

PS - walking thru a store a couple weeks ago I came round a corner and face to face with a guy wearing this shirt. I said DUDE! he said I know right! I said you either know or you don't. hahahaha
we were walking away and my wife goes...umm....what the hell was that about.
I'm gonna have to get one....

Poke my head in to register my excitement. But this show is so good, I'll probably try to avoid talking about it overly just to avoid speculation, spoilers and over-analysis. It stands on it's own, and I want to experience it on it's own.
