As hard as it was for fans ofBreaking Bad to let their favorite show go, they could always take solace in the existence of spin off Better Call Saul. Since Saul was a prequel that meant that somewhere out there Walter White was still there.
It’s been over a year and a half since Breaking Bad bowed out in style with its fantastic series finale, and while viewers can surmise what happened to the surviving characters, there’s one person whose fate was left entirely in the balance: devoted henchman Huell Babineaux. Until now.
If you’re playing one of television’s most charismatic aggressors, it helps if your personality is at least partially sadistic in nature. And Walter White portrayer Bryan Cranston certainly has a lighthearted villainous streak running through him.
Sure, the act of throwing a pizza on the house’s roof is embedded in Breaking Bad itself, as that’s precisely what Walt did in anger during “Caballo Sin Nombre” after Skyler wouldn’t let him in the house. But don't do it to the people who live there now!
Better Call Saul hasn’t premiered on AMC, yet, but the network is busy unveiling plenty of related information and promos. On Sunday, AMC released the highly anticipated “The Song” for Better Call Saul. Country music artist Junior Brown is behind the performance, but if you listen to the lyrics carefully, you may get some hints as to what everybody’s favorite lawyer might be up to during Season 1.
Since AMC's Breaking Bad wrapped up, fans of the series have been waiting to see what creator Vince Gilligan does next. CBS has the answer to that with their upcoming new police series Battle Creek, a drama that -- unfortunately -- won't make it onto the schedule until later in the season (presumably midseason).
One thing is for certain: we're all very, very excited for AMC’s upcoming new series, Better Call Saul. Since the day the spin-off was announced, fans of Breaking Bad have gone off the deep-end of excitement. We here at Cinemablend know that it sucks to be out of the loop, so we've compile everything we know about your new favorite TV series thus far. Don't say we never did anything nice for ya!
It’s a tricky thing, bringing characters from a beloved series onto a different show within the same universe. But not once has that worry gone through our heads regarding Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad spin-off series, Better Call Saul. Especially with the news that Aaron Paul will be reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman. Now we’re just thinking about how we're going to lose our ever-loving minds in the best way.
It probably won’t be long before we all start to go through serious Breaking Bad withdrawal. Oh, sure, the series wrapped up months ago, but the satisfaction of a drama well concluded will eventually wear off and those of us who anticipated the series’ return each year will find ourselves reminding ourselves that Breaking Bad isn’t coming back this year.
It’s December, which means another month has wedged itself between us and the end of Breaking Bad. Luckily, the separation from the show has given series creator Vince Gilligan, and soon-to-be showrunner Peter Gould time to talk a bit more in depth about their next venture: the spinoff Better Call Saul. And guess what? There’s heaps to say about its potential future, which is slated to appear on our small screens before the end of 2014. Rejoice: it’s all good!
I've never totally gotten the appeal of the unboxing video-- wouldn't you rather have the toy or game than watch someone else open it on YouTube? But I make an exception for Vince Gilligan under pretty much all circumstances, and that includes this unboxing video for the full Breaking Bad box set, which hits shelves on November 26
So we’re all anticipating the future of AMC’s Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, yes? (Obviously, or else why would you click this article?) Those of us waiting for another taste of the Albuquerque life are waiting with breath so baited that we’re positively flooded with its hypothetical potential. But any previous notions one might’ve had about Saul’s structure are being called into question at this point, because nobody knows what the series is going to look like.
Season 5 of Community adds another showrunner… to its list of guest stars, that is. Last week we shared the news that Arrested Development showrunner Mitchell Hurwitz had signed on to guest star in the NBC comedy, and this week comes word that Breaking Bad mastermind Vince Gilligan will also be putting in a bit of face-time at Greendale Community College.
The network is currently prepping to air Better Call Saul, a brand new prequel series following the antics of lawyer Saul Goodman. Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan will be involved, and he recently divulged that a bunch of the show’s cast members (besides the obvious Bob Odenkirk) have expressed interest in the new series.
I love the way Gilligan is wearing a jacket that would essentially help him blend like a chameleon into the bland White home, and though he's brought it up elsewhere, his comparison of the end of the series to the end of John Ford's The Searchers really helps understand where Walt's head is when he dives to the ground with Jesse in his arms. And, of course, this has Stephen Colbert singing, and who doesn't need that once in a while?
