A prequel, when done correctly, isn’t a series of not-so-subtle winks and nods and “Hey, remember this?” moments (looking at you, Gotham). When successful, a prequel not only helps us to better understand a character and his/her motivations, but adds additional and perhaps needed shading, taking them from a character with maybe only one or a few dimensions, to a more fully-formed being. Better Call Saul may not have the same sense of urgency or momentum as its predecessor, but its study of character is no less interesting, proving some of that aforementioned shading to a guy we mainly knew as a sly lawyer and sometimes sleaze.
It’s almost impossible to watch Better Call Saul without viewing the series through the lens of Breaking Bad. The former would not exist without the latter, but it’s interesting to consider a world in which Breaking Bad never existed and Bob Odenkirk might have been given a weekly hour-long series on AMC about the slippery slope a struggling lawyer charismatically slides down on his way to success. Although both shows share a particular cinematic style and feature the varying, gray shades of morality, the comparisons just about end there, as they should.
