    i know i expressed doubts about this show previously, but now that the premiere date is approaching (Feb 8) i'm getting excited about it. anything Breaking Bad is better than nothing.


    "For years, there had been jokes in the writing room and on the set of “Breaking Bad” about the Saul Goodman project, the one that would take the indelible lawyer inhabited by Bob Odenkirk and wrap an entire show around him once Walter had sold his last barrel of meth.

    Then something funny happened. The joke came true."

    I have this fantasy about this show -- hear me out. Gilligan wrote for x-files. It would be awesome if this show was like the x-files format. On the x-files each episode would be about an individual x-file, while the conspiracy plot weaved through the entire season. Here, they could have each show be about one of Saul's cases, and then have the back story of all the Breaking Bad crew weaved throughout. You could basically do this forever. and you could bring back everyone except probably the Whites, but you could even go into them. They don't have to make a nexus with Saul really.

    it's a prequel, so all characters from BB are theoretically available.

    in other news,

    The four-day hearing on the order of protection sought by a former girlfriend of NASCAR driver Kurt Busch took a major turn shortly before its conclusion Tuesday when Busch stated that Patricia Driscoll is a trained assassin who once returned from an assignment in a blood-spattered evening gown.

    “Everybody on the outside can tell me I’m crazy, but I lived on the inside and saw it firsthand,” Kurt Busch said (via Delawareonline.com) in response to a question from his attorney, Rusty Hardin, as the Dover, Del., hearing veered into series TV miniseries territory.


    wtf? :jj:

    I loved Breaking Bad, I don't see how this could possibly work. The Breaking Bad Universe needs Walter H. White.

    we have Chriza's guarantee. i'm going to go in with an open mind.

    to compare any show to BB is unfair.

    Larry David said he got so pissed that Frasier beat Seinfeld every year at the Emmys, he stopped going.
