‘Breaking Bad’s ‘Better Call Saul’ Spinoff Spoilers: Courtroom Drama Confirmed?

Breaking Bad Better Call Saul Spinoff Spoilers Courtroom
AMC

While rumor has it that the ‘Breaking Bad‘ spinoff (tentatively titled) ‘Better Call Saul‘ could unfold as much post “Felina” as before we met Walter White’s clownish lawyer, we still have a relatively small picture of what story Saul Goodman might have to tell. Enter series star Bob Odenkirk, who claims we might see Saul in the place we’d least expect to find him: a court of law!

Though Odenkirk continually reaffirms that ‘Better Call Saul’ could emerge as both a sequel and prequel series, the former ‘Mr. Show’ star recently confirmed to YahooTV that he’d begun researching for the spinoff by spending time in court. For those who have seen as far as ‘Breaking Bad”s penultimate episode “Granite State,” something tells us that Saul wouldn’t have much occasion to be in court (ideally) from his future position managing a Cinnabon.

Part of the paradox of Saul Goodman and one of the things that made him fun, even right back in that first episode. He looks like a clown. Frankly, I’ve been hanging around in courtrooms lately, and it’s not as broad as I thought originally.

He dresses in a ridiculous way, he’s got billboards, he’s got ridiculous ads, but he is a shrewd customer. If you listen, most of his advice to Walt over the years in the show was really good advice. If Walt had listened to Saul a little bit more, I think the show would have gone very differently and probably would not have been as exciting.

Goodman had famously been described by both Odenkirk and ‘Breaking Bad’ creator Vince Gilligan as a lawyer that avoided courtrooms wherever possible, at least confirming that we’re likely to see a bit of the character in his prime. For now, AMC has only confirmed development of a ‘Better Call Saul’ pilot, though a series order seems likely.

What say you? Are you interested to see Saul Goodman’s courtroom past, or would you prefer the ‘Breaking Bad’ spinoff to see the character in a new, present setting?
