Better Call Saul?

Postby JamishT » Thu Sep 12, 2013 7:30 pm

Apparently a Breaking Bad spinoff is in the works/planned.

I think it might work. MIGHT. I'd like to see a show about Jesse Pinkman, maybe call it Yo, Watch This Show, Bitch!.

With a devilish twinkle in his eye.
With his hand-picked flowers,
And his feel-good powers,
He made all the girls blush and sigh.

I like the idea, but don't prequels have a logical end?

Eh, screw it. The kids from HIMYM have been sitting on that couch for years.

Saul and Mike! My two favourite characters from Breaking Bad!
Sounds good. Maybe there could be other spin-offs like Breaking Badger or Braking Bad starring Walt's car or Breakfast Bad.

Herman Trout, you mean?

It's obviously Swedish. You can tell by the hair and pleasant disposition.

http://www.movieweb.com/news/better-call-saul-will-take-place-before-during-and-after-breaking-bad
So, apparently, Better Call Saul won't just be a prequel, but will span decades, with each arc being its own thing and taking place either before,during or after the events of Breaking Bad. It seems interesting, but given Saul's fate at the end of the series, I'm not sure if I should be concerned or intrigued.

So long as Mike's in it, I'm in. I'll watch it just for him. And if it takes place after BB as well, does this mean we'll see how the ol' family's doing? The whole last season I was wondering what would happen to Walt's daughter after all this... I just hope they don't do anything that would ruin Breaking Bad retroactively. It ended well, and in a timely manner and I'd hate to see it milked to death.

This song turns progressively darker as it goes along...

I have pooped-filled diapers, and much rage. I declare, I think I may enjoy this televised episodic play!

On the theme song, I had forgotten about Junior Brown. I recall him being a charismatic C&W guy who could play the bejeebus out of that franken-guitar thingy he plays. Damn fine picker, he is. And I can see the fit:
