    Better Call Saul

    I don't think it will be anywhere near as good as Breaking Bad, it has potential.

    Re: Better Call Saul

    We'll definitely be watching. I don't think it could ever be expected to match BB, but it could still be very good. Starts in February?

    Re: Better Call Saul

    If Mike is in it I'll definitely give it a shot. He may have been my favorite BB character.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Better Call Saul

    Picking Bob Odenkirk as Saul might be one of the greatest casting decisions ever made. It's an absolutely perfect fit, and I can't think of anyone else who'd come even close to making that role work.

    It's such a departure from Mr. Show for him, but he's just so fantastic as Saul. I love Odenkirk. I'd be curious if some of his comedy buddies come on as guest stars.

    To be fair, nothing can top Breaking Bad.

    Re: Better Call Saul

    I think the marketing dept for the show should put Saul advertisements on random city bus benches.

    Re: Better Call Saul

    "Gilligan recently revealed that he envisions Better Call Saul as an hour-long drama versus a half-hour series. Odenkirk has also echoed that sentiment, hinting that the vision for the show is relatively "dark," despite the comic relief Goodman frequently offered in his Breaking Bad role."

    Agree completely. Probably my favorite character as well and I've heard he plays a fairly major role in the new series. I'm keeping my expectations low though and want to avoid comparing the new show to Breaking Bad. I'm sure there will be similarities but I'm gonna try and approach Better Call Saul as a seperate entity entirely. Comparing anything to Breaking Bad can only end in disappointment for me.

    Re: Better Call Saul

    So is this show a prequel to BB, during BB, or set after BB?
