The Breaking Bad spin-off show Better Call Saul doesn’t premiere until February. (And we don’t even know precisely when in February.) But promotions for the show are already starting. A Breaking Bad marathon on AMC was capped off this weekend by this new Better Call Saul video featuring a song that could well be the show’s theme tune. Sung by Junior Brown, the country ditty has lyrics by show creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. The video, which is pretty entertaining on its own, has some new footage from the show, while the lyrics could tease the sort of stories we can expect to see in the series. Read More »

The TV schedule will be jam-packed with new shows for the next few weeks, some much more promising-looking than others. However, even within that crowded slate there’s one highly anticipated project that’ll be conspicuously absent. The Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul doesn’t premiere until early next year, which means we’ve got several months to wait still.
But of course, AMC would rather you didn’t forget about it in the meantime. So the network has debuted another brief Better Call Saul teaser, hinting that even before Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) remade himself as Saul Goodman, he had a whole lot of Saul Goodman in him. Hit the jump to see the latest Better Call Saul teaser.

Bob Odenkirk‘s Saul Goodman was just a supporting character in the dramatic saga of Walter White, but his colorful personality couldn’t help but demand our attention. So in the upcoming Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, he’ll finally get his time in the spotlight.
The show promises to delve into the hows and whys of this fan-favorite character, but for now all we have are questions. Like the one series co-creator Peter Gould poses in the new Better Call Saul promo: ”What kind of problem do you have that becoming Saul Goodman solves it?” Watch the Better Call Saul promo after the jump.

AMC recently premiered the first Better Call Saul footage, and the clip from the Breaking Bad spin-off is now online. It’s not much — ten seconds of Saul (Bob Odenkirk) talking about the value of having a lawyer. But we know much of the show takes place six years before Breaking Bad, and this seems like a Saul who is younger and not quite as shark-like as he is by the time Walt and Jesse walk into his office years later. In fact, the character probably isn’t even called Saul at this point. He’s most likely going by the name James M. McGill. He once told Walt that’s his real name, but who knows with Saul? Presumably the show will fill in many more details.
Better Call Saul premieres in February 2015. Watch the footage below. Read More »

OK, here we go: real details on what Vince Gilligan is doing with his Breaking Bad spin-off series Better Call Saul. We’ve known some basics, such as that Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks are reprising their Breaking Bad roles of Saul Goodman and Mike Ehrmantraut. And we’ve heard a hell of a lot of rumors, speculation, and “maybe” details from Gilligan, Odenkirk, and other participants. Now during a TCA press tour, Gilligan and AMC have offered up two new photos (that’s one above), a cast list, and new Better Call Saul plot details.
Now we know that the show is generally set six years before the events of Breaking Bad, before Saul was even called Saul. All the details are below. Read More »

One of the biggest burning questions regarding the AMC Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul has been answered. It’s a prequel to Breaking Bad. And a sequel to Breaking Bad. And a part of Breaking Bad, all at the same time. Executive producer Peter Gould told the NY Daily News the show is going to have flexible timeline, which would allow the story to span decades including, yes, those where Saul (Bob Odenkirk) was working with Walter White (Bryan Cranston).
