Media Center>Better Call Saul

As I am sure many of y'all already know, a spinoff of "Breaking Bad" titled "Better Call Saul" will be airing in 2014. This is going to be a prequel to Breaking Bad and will be based on the character of Saul Goodman from "Breaking Bad."

I, for one, will be watching. I'm sure the majority of all of you other "Breaking Bad" fans will be as well. Might as well get the discussion going sooner rather than later.

So... what are your hopes, expectations and/or concerns with the show? Here are some of mine:

Hopes: I hope to see Saul do his thing in the courtroom. I hope to see strong, unique supporting characters. I hope to see Breaking Bad foreshadowing. I hope he has an intriguing paralegal and/or assistant. I hope to see Breaking Bad characters such as Fring, Mike, etc...whoever. I hope the show kicks ass.

Expectations: I don't expect it to be as good as "Breaking Bad" (because nothing else is, really), but I expect it to be good since Vince Gilligan is writing. I somewhat expect it to have an even balance of comedy and drama...since Saul undeniably provides a substantial amount of comedic relief in "Breaking Bad." I expect to see "courtroom Saul." I expect the "Breaking Bad" references and character cameos to be less than what I hope. If it isn't even a fraction as good as "Breaking Bad," I expect it to be better than 95% of everything else on TV, since there is some shitty shit on TV these days.

Concerns: I'd be a liar if I were to say that I didn't think this show has potential of flopping and certainly failing to meet the presumed high expectations of the audience. Don't get me wrong, I think it will be good... but I think it COULD suck if not executed properly. My main concern is Saul ultimately proving himself to be a "little dab will do ya" type of character, which would lead to a show centered around his character not working out. I am hoping that the character of Saul will not be so over-used and constantly over the top, that he becomes annoying to me, thus ruining his character for me altogether... Not saying I think this will be how it goes down...just saying I think there is a CHANCE of this being the case, which prompts me to believe that a strong supporting cast is VITAL in terms of the amount of success/quality this show will accumulate. All in all, I don't think VG will steer us in an unfortunate direction though...I think they'll pull it off.

Thoughts?

DISCUS!!!!

I was reading back through the OP. Pretty amazing how spot on some of these hopes and expectations turned out to be.

I just watched to first real scene that Saul is in on Breaking Bad.

He is talking to Badger in jail, just dropping one liner after one liner.

I couldn't stop laughing. :-)

And the guy Jimmy is scared shirtless of is Lalo, which Jimmy pins on nacho. So we're starting to intersect timelines. I wonder when you'll start hearing about blue sky. That's when we'll know we're getting close.

Going to be real interesting watching the rise of blue sky from gus's eyes.

Bad feeling that things will end poorly for Kim and Nacho, which sucks bc their characters are really good.

Have a feeling Lalo is going to get destroyed and Iíve got an even bigger feeling that itís gonna be Mike who fucks him up

I really wish I would have watched seasons 1-4 before 5 started. This season constantly references everything from the beginning but I can barely remember what happened early on.

This is Tuco.

Lalo was impressed that Saul could deal with Tuco.

Saul can adapt to anything.

I think the show is being a little too obvious with the beer bottle bit between Saul and Kim.

Except knowing the price the Cartel would pay him for his services - they did an incredible job showing how in over his head he was from the get-go.

Who would be prepared for that? He was picked up on a curbside and taken out in the middle of nowhere by the Mexican mafia.

He played it decent. Ask for too much and he might have ended up dead or blackmailed right there.

I was curious about the meaning behind that scene.

Kim is close to breaking it off with Jimmy, or Jimmy is going to break it off with her to protect her from the bad people he is becoming involved with.

Nothing bad will happen to Kim. Saul in BB is too much like Saul in BCS for something tragic to happen.
