Is everybody looking forward to the Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul? Aren’t you just dying to learn more about it? Well, unfortunately, not much is known at this time. However, there is plenty of speculation and vague detail about the show. That’s better than nothing. Or maybe it’s the equivalent to nothing. It’s definitely one of those things.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Breaking Bad’s co-executive producer Peter Gould hinted that maybe Saul Goodman could be spending a lot of time in the courtroom. That’s right. Maybe, just maybe, a show based around a lawyer could be mostly set in a courtroom. Did I just blow your mind right out of its medulla obla-asshole? Other bombshells Gould could have revealed include that Saul will not be a cyborg named Saul-Tron.9 and most of the characters will be wearing shoes throughout every episode.
Additionally, do you remember a few months ago when it was reported that Better Call Saul was definitely going to be a prequel? Well, that’s not the case anymore. According to Saul’s star Bob Odenkirk,
Maybe it’s a prequel, maybe it’s a sequel, maybe it’s both… we’ll see!
I thought he was kidding when he said it could be both a prequel and a sequel but after thinking about it a little bit, I kind of hope that’s the case. It would be interesting if the show randomly flashed back and forth between Saul’s early pre-Walt glory days and his depressing current life as a manager at a Baskin Robbins somewhere in Nebraska.
But in spite of these sparse details, two things are definitely known, Better Call Saul is happening and most of you are already making it your business to be disappointed by it.
