It may be brief, but anytime we can see Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman, we’ll count it as a win.
Last night we got a very fleeting first glimpse at Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff starring Odenkirk as the titular slippery lawyer. The show will jump around in time, but largely will be serving as a prequel to Breaking Bad, which is probably necessary for spoiler-ish reasons we won’t discuss further.
While there isn’t much to dissect from this 10 second clip, it’s clear that Saul (and his resplendent hair) will be up to his old tricks, using clever turns of phrase like the true used car salesman he is. Does the show have trainwreck potential? Absolutely. But there is no way that will stop us from checking it out, at least in hopes of finding out what happened to Huell.
