Better Call Saul, the TV series
A bit late for April Fools, so I'm assuming this is legit.


As AMC‘s Breaking Bad is heading into its final eight-episode run this summer, the network and series producer Sony TV are exploring keeping the franchise alive with a spinoff series centered on one of Breaking Bad‘s most recognizable supporting characters, Bob Odenkirk‘s unflappable criminal lawyer Saul Goodman.


Saul has served as Breaking Bad‘s comic relief, which is not surprising given Odenkirk’s strong comedy background. As a result, I hear the potential spinoff is eyed as a comedy, which could be one-hour, but a half-hour format also is being explored.
A dark comedy about an outlandish scumbag lawyer? Could work.

Oh PS, I don't consider this a spoiler that Saul survives the series, because there's every chance this loopy idea is misdirection and they do plan to kill him off... ;)

He dies. They do a prequel. No biggy.

That would be hilarious.

Having characters dead and alive, Walter even, walking through Saul's periphery ALMOST intersecting with his life.

This could be funny. Saul Goodman is in my top three Breaking Bad characters. As long as they keep the humor in Saul's typical scummy antics and not make it slapstick or anything, I'd definitely be up to watching it.

Oh my god, I LOVE Saul. I was just posting about this character on another board in reference to this lawyer who was recntly busted for bringing cocaine (for one of his client's) into a California prison. I thought, this is Saul, a criminal attorney.

If this is a comedy, it has to be dark. Looking forward to it.
