Saul Goodman to be Saul Goodman in “Breaking Bad” spinoff about Saul Goodman

11 Sep


After months of speculation, AMC announced today that Bob Odenkirk will reprise his role in a spinoff of Breaking Bad, and that said spinoff will be airing on AMC. The series will involve Saul Goodman doing Saul Goodman-y things, like telling young, unsuspecting idiots to not drink and drive, but call him if they do. The series will be one hour, and will presumably consist of 20 minutes of “Better Call Saul” ads, 20 minutes of “Better Call Saul” ads, and 20 minutes of “Better Call Saul” ads. 

Vince Gilligan will be involved in the creative process, and the series will most likely air sometime next year. That gives us enough time to finish screaming at the top of our lungs in reaction to Breaking Bad, and will give our families and friends enough time to look at us strangely, then move out of the country. By the time we have digested the series finale and have gone through withdrawal from the show, most of us will probably be a melted puddle of human, almost as if Walt himself dissolved us in a vat of acid.

Those of us that survive will be able to see Saul’s origins, as the series will trace his route from sleazy lawyer to sleazy lawyer of Heisenberg. Hank and Marie will probably guest star so Hank can throw in a “Jesus Christ, Marie!”, and Jesus Christ will probably descend from the skies in the form of Huell. Walt Jr. will also spend the whole series gaping idiotically at Saul.

Credit to AMC and Breaking Bad for all pictures. I own nothing.

    I’m still not sure what to think of this idea. I’m afraid it’s really just going to be an attempt to milk more money out of “Breaking Bad” without a lot of creative effort put into it, but Gilligan being involved suggests at least some possibility that it’s more than that.

    However, I love Saul. I’m willing at least to give it a chance just for that.

      That’s my take on it, too. There is no doubt that it’s going to be extremely entertaining, and probably hilarious, but I’m not sure about the direction of the show. I think it might take a Terriers-type approach to it, with cases of the week, an overarching plot, and some dark humor thrown in there.
