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. 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.

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).

Desperate for a Breaking Bad fix? AMC has both good and bad news for you.

Fargo, the series, follows in the footsteps of Fargo, the movie, with the blessing of Ethan and Joel Coen. This isn’t a strict remake, but rather a new “true crime” story that is very much in the vein of the Coen Brothers movie, and which shares the same Minnesota setting and collection of friendly/quirky accents. That said, this new trailer shows that Martin Freeman seems to be doing his darndest to channel William H. Macy’s performance.
Some of the rest of the cast (which includes Billy Bob Thornton, Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, Adam Goldberg, Oliver Platt, Glenn Howerton, Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Joey King, and Julie Ann Emery) also has their own Coen debt to pay. Whether this will end up being able to stand on its own two feet is open to question now, but this trailer is entertaining enough that we’ll be watching the first episodes of the 10-episode series on FX.
