Re: Better Call Saul (AMC)

We'll be watching this for sure. I am especially looking forward to seeing Mike again!

Re: Better Call Saul (AMC)

I want to like this show, but I'm afraid it will taint BB for me if I watch it. I hold it to too high of a standard. I dunno...

Re: Better Call Saul (AMC)

The guy who called him "Jimmy" is a great actor. He's done a bunch of shows, but some around here may remember him (Patrick Fabian) best from his role on Pushing Daisies as the Dandelion Car guy.

Re: Better Call Saul (AMC)

I am hoping Gustavo Fring shows up. I believe there's talk that he'll eventually spin off into his own 13 episode series - the Chilean years.

I agree. It's an impossible standard to meet. It's banking on the huge success of a show that I prefer remain untarnished. Prequel or not, watching this spin-off would skew my rewatches of Breaking Bad. I would like to see Bob Odenkirk in starring role, but for me, Saul Goodman is probably Better left within the framework of Breaking Bad. It will be difficult to abstain, cuz like you, I really want to like this show- but if I'm real, I know it can't possibly enhance what is already perfect.

Abstaint- to refrain from an action with which would taint one's perspective
"I'm abstainting Better Call Saul, because I hold Breaking Bad in such high regard."

I have sort of similar reservations about the forthcoming Walking Dead sideshow coming out called Cobalt(?), where it's the same zombie 2Pacalypse but set in L.A.

I wouldn't bet on my willpower lasting, lol. I'll be reading along and am anxious for people's reviews. I want to hear good reviews, but I'm a little skeptical.

This show can't really taint my feelings towards Breaking Bad unless they REALLY botch up the back stories of Saul or Mike.

Re: Better Call Saul (AMC)

If VG gets the same writers, I have a feeling it's going to be pretty amazing. I think it would be cool if they do it like Godfather 2 with parallel storylines of post-BB and pre-BB.

Re: Better Call Saul (AMC)

I agree with WDG. It's kinda like...just even knowing more of Saul or Mike's backstory is assuming a risk. Because Breaking Bad was so perfect from start to finish, and you can't unknow what you know about a character. Breaking Bad was always so stylized too, the directing and cinematography. I dunno. I'll probably watch maybe just the pilot, but it'd have to be really really excellent for me to continue.
