A Breaking Bad Community
AMC (ended 2013)
It's official!
Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff show set around Bob Odenkirk‘s rakish, pragmatic, and charismatic lawyer Saul Goodman, is now the subject of a “go-ahead” licensing agreement between AMC and Breaking Bad producer Sony Pictures TV.
Will it be a Joey or a Frasier? I'm inclined to believe the latter, based on this tidbit:
Expect the show to be a bit less dark than the parent show, and much more comic.
It sounds like they're going to play to Odenkirk's strengths, instead of making him carry a show that tries to match the tone of Breaking Bad. Saul will be the focus of this onscreen world, and the show will have to tonally match his particular point-of-view in order to succeed.

I'm excited! Odenkirk has been great on Breaking Bad, and the man is long overdue for this kind of success.

Funny how often characters who are brought in with the idea of only being temporary act themselves into a full time gig. Both Saul and Jesse were supposed to be long gone. Interested to see how the Better call Saul show plays out.

Like Michael Emerson on Lost! A good actor can completely change the direction of a season and ultimately a series.

Saul has been hilarious throughout Breaking Bad, so I'm really hoping they are able to hold on to the writers who contributed the most to his one-liners.

It's great that we can look forward to something after Breaking Bad ends- and I'm sure it'll be just as outstanding- I really love the idea
