AMC’s Better Call Saul carries on quite a few traditions from its Breaking Bad predecessor, but did you know Saul’s prequel journey was originally envisioned as a half-hour comedy? Or that some of Walter White’s famous threads put in a cameo six years before their origin? These are just some of the criminal facts to uncover in the seventh episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which lawyers up to defend AMC’s Better Call Saul!
Keeping in line with some of its Breaking Bad inspirations, AMC’s prequel Better Call Saul borrows its use of clothing to indicate character traits, as well as the state of Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk)’s car, which itself pays homage to Saul’s ride in the pilot episode. Interestingly, Saul gets a bit more technical than Breaking Bad in its photography, using digital over 35mm film, and a small Panasonic camera for more unusual shots.
