While we wish all shows on television could be as dense and thought-out as Breaking Bad was, that kind of quality control is more of the exception than the rule. And sometimes the details even flew over Vince Gilligan's head.
The world of Breaking Bad was so rich and deep that years after its excellent series finale, fans are still talking about the ins and the outs of Walter Whiteís rise and fall, as there are still plenty of details and questions that were never fully explained. Creator Vince Gilligan just cleared one of them up.
In Better Call Saul Season 1, Bob Odenkirkís excellent performance almost had us forgetting all about our hopes and dreams for what Breaking Bad characters might appear on the show. But now our hopes are back in full force.
Breaking Bad would not have been nearly as successful as it was without DEA Agent/Brother-in-law Hank Schrader. But it turns out a complete fluke stopped him from being killed off earlier in the series.
Although Bob Odenkirk stars on both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, heís not exactly playing the same character, and that was cause for concern for co-creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, as they thought viewers would only want to see Saul Goodman.
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.
Itís 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, thereís one person whose fate was left entirely in the balance: devoted henchman Huell Babineaux. Until now.
If youíre playing one of televisionís 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 houseís roof is embedded in Breaking Bad itself, as thatís precisely what Walt did in anger during ďCaballo Sin NombreĒ after Skyler wouldnít let him in the house. But don't do it to the people who live there now!
Better Call Saul hasnít premiered on AMC, yet, but the network is busy unveiling plenty of related information and promos. On Sunday, AMC released the highly anticipated ďThe SongĒ 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 everybodyís 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 AMCís 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!
Itís 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 Gilliganís Breaking Bad spin-off series, Better Call Saul. Especially with the news that Aaron Paul will be reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman. Now weíre just thinking about how we're going to lose our ever-loving minds in the best way.
It probably wonít 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 seriesí return each year will find ourselves reminding ourselves that Breaking Bad isnít coming back this year.
Itís 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? Thereís heaps to say about its potential future, which is slated to appear on our small screens before the end of 2014. Rejoice: itís all good!
