Before they were Saul Goodman and Tobias Funke, Bob Odenkirk and David Cross co-created one of the funniest shows ever. It was called Mr. Show (or, more fully, Mr. Show With Bob and David) and it ran four seasons on HBO, from 1995 to 1998. Mr. Show helped give the comedians a huge cult following and major pop culture cachet. Since then, each has gone off on their own, becoming very successful in different ways. Now they’re coming back together.
Bob Odenkirk and David Cross have just sold a brand new sketch comedy series called With Bob and David to Netflix. It’s just started production and will consist of four half hour episodes and a one hour “making of.” There’s more on this pseudo-Mr Show reunion below. Read More »

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 »

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 »

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.

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.
