Better Call Saul sent a greetings card of sorts from the set in the form of a video behind-the-scenes teaser and it was posted not only on AMCs Internet site but on their official YouTube channel titled, AMC. The only people who may not know who Saul Goodman is have either been hiding under a rock for the last six years or never felt the urge to watch Breaking Bad (2008 – 2013) on television or Netflix, or even iTunes. Bob Odenkirk played the savvy lawyer to Bryan Cranston’s Walter White, aka Heisenberg and Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman a sort of three muskateers scenario without out the fourth unless counting Giancarlo Esposito’s Gus Fring as the temporary additional musketeer.
Sarah Silverman made a triumphant return to Saturday Night Live (SNL) playing host and paying tribute to her hero Joan Rivers. It has only come to light recently that the 43 year-old stand up comic, actress and writer was dumped unceremoniously via fax, a sort of old fashioned version of being fired by text, from the show back during the male dominated part of the franchise in the 1990’s. What is interesting about her being “let go” is the reasoning behind it.
Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston are keen to reprise their Breaking Bad roles in the new AMC spinoff Better Call Saul. Paul has been in talks to come back as Jesse Pinkman in the lawyer focussed prequel starring Bob Odenkirk. Casting for the new show started on Feb 28 and production on the new series will start in May.
AMC have announced their upcoming series lineup and the Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul is set to air in November this year. Saul Goodman, the stressed and shady lawyer who aided and abetted Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in their meth-amphetamine empire building, was so popular with viewers of the AMC series that he got his own spin-off show.
With only three episodes left of Breaking Bad and with the last episode, To’hajiilee ending in an O. K. Corral type shootout, the news that character Saul Goodman is going to feature in an AMC “prequel” is exciting and somewhat disturbing. It sort of makes us wonder if that spells bad news for Saul in the current series.
