This weekend is a big one for Breaking Bad fans as the spin-off, Better Call Saul, airs its first episode. The show stars Bob Odenkirk as the man who eventually becomes sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman, as seen on Breaking Bad. How and why did Saul become who he is? That’s the question Vince Gilligan and his team will try to answer with Better Call Saul, which airs on February 8.
If you can’t wait until then, or just want a hint of the show’s tone, AMC has released a prequel comic book for the series. This is cool for multiple reasons. One, the story takes place during an episode of Breaking Bad. And two, you don’t even have to download it, you can read the entire thing online, right now. See the Better Call Saul comic book below.

Of all the TV shows coming to the small screen in 2015, Vince Gilligan‘s Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul has to be among the most anticipated. The show premieres February 8 and 9 on AMC and will explore the character of Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk. In Breaking Bad, it always seemed like Saul had connections to some really, really messed up people and this show – which is set before, during and after Breaking Bad depending on the story – will give us a better idea of how a struggling lawyer named James McGill became the slimy lawyer Saul.
AMC has just released our best look yet at the show via a cool new 30 second TV spot. It’s almost all new footage, so check out the Better Call Saul trailer below. Read More »

An adaptation of the profane, funny and strange Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic book series Preacher never got off the ground as a film, but the TV series adaptation is steadily moving forward. Developed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This is the End, The Interview), the series now has a pilot order. AMC made the deal for a Preacher pilot, scripted by Rogen and Goldberg.
That means we’ll soon hear casting choices for the characters, likely beginning with Jesse Custer, the preacher of the title who is imbued with the power of Godly persuasion… and wants to confront God as a result. Read More »

There are a few revelations in the first behind the scenes set video of AMC’s upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul. The show stars Bob Odenkirk as the slimy lawyer from Breaking Bad, and if you haven’t followed along with the early promos for the show, one revelation here is that Saul Goodman isn’t the guy’s real name. He’s really Jimmy McGill. That’s just the very tip of the character expansion Saul is getting in this new show, however, and I’m so in. (Who am I kidding, I was already in.)
The video also features tons of the new actors and below the line talent discussing how special it is to be back in the A.B.Q — Albuquerque, New Mexico — to shoot the series. Check out the Better Call Saul set video below. Read More »
