    As much as I love Breaking Bad, I have my doubts that this can be good. Saul works to provide levity, especially after Walter's turn became more evident, I don't know that a whole series based on a guy providing levity is a good concept. :dontknow:

    That's what I'm saying. Saul was a goofy ambulance chaser who found himself sucked in over his head, doing a prequel is just doing a show about a goofy ambulance chaser, no?

    AMC didn't want to do it, but other networks were interested ...so AMC, fearing that another network would get it, greenlighted it.

    They couldn't do a present-day version.

    It's a great supporting character, but I can't see building an entire show around him. It would be like making Newman the lead in a 'Seinfeld' spinoff.

    They can't do a present-day spinoff....and Saul goodman is an interesting character in and of itself. So why not do a prequel??

    True, but he does have some crazy connections. It might be interesting to see how they were formed.

    Go to "Saul's" website. It's hysterical. The commercials are a riot. Be sure to read EVERYTHING that is in the commercials. :jj:

    Sounds like they're doing a prequel (or say they're doing a prequel) because Saul will be killed off of BB. Would be interesting/bummer watching a show where you know your lead eventually goes to an early grave. Then again, Huell sure is funny.
