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 took it as Jimmy was younger and screwed up. And his brother saved him. I think we will find out that his brother Charles got him out of that jam..and as a result Jimmy grew up and became an attorney. I think its alao why he feels he owes his brother and wants to help him so much

This. It was his insane dying brother that he was trying to get to sue the company in the first episode.

What I really liked structurally, was when the poop brown station wagon drove away, at first I was like 'wasn't she picking her kids up from school, then 'I don't think that's the same house.

But the pace in that scene was so frenetic I couldn't be sure I was right.

Man Gilligan is getting lazy in his writing?

Then 'oh shit!' They hit a different poop brown station wagon. Then the reveal of who's house it was.

It's satisfying when a show maintains those inconsistencies until just the time when the implications hit home.

Sorry for mistrusting you Gilligan, after the plane crash season of BB, I should have known you know story structure.

I don't think he's dying. He's becoming more and more unhinged and paranoid and can't stop himself. Sad thing is he knows he standing in the way of his own return to the world.

Speculation, not spoiler. But I think Charles will get better as Jimmy descends into Saul, and there will be a big showdown between them.

I'm really enjoying the show. I know Saul is going to end up being one of those enigmatic characters like WW where you know he's a shitbag but you can't help but root for him. I kinda hope when the show ends, it will show Saul doing something awesome about his Cinnabon situation.

Honestly I can't remember off the top off my head what happened to Saul at the end of BB. Did he go into the program or is he on the run? **** my memory sucks.

Yea I figured that out from the opening of the new show but I was trying to remember why he had to go on the run especially since everybody is pretty much dead by the end of BB
