Better Call Saul is both a spin-off from the Bryan Cranston-starring hit TV series Breaking Bad, and also a prequel to it, and shows the trials and tribulations of criminal lawyer, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), in the time leading up to establishing his strip-mall law office in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The series stars Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler, Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin, plus appearances from Gene N Chavez, Michael McKean, Michael McKean, Jyl Murray, Michael Mando and Jonathan Banks. It was rumoured that Aaron Paul would also be in this new series but this has since been proved false.
I’ll be honest and say that I’ve never seen Breaking Bad, although I do mean to start at some point – it’s just the amount of time I’d need to devote to it, and I’ve got a zillion other things to watch and review first…
Better Call Saul premieres in the US on February 8th, with a UK date still not yet known. It does look fab, though, and I remember seeing Bob Odenkirk as Bill Oswalt in the TV series version of Fargo.
