Better Call Saul: Valentine’s Day gift for Breaking Bad fans


Saul Goodman is in, way in!

Saul Goodman is in, way in!

I have to admit it, it wasn’t love at first sight. When AMC announced a Better Call Saul sequel to Breaking Bad, I thought it was a bad idea.

But, I was wise to tread lightly and hold off on a premature judgment. After the premiere episode, I have a great appreciation for the one who knocks over trash cans, and IS the hapless danger — Jimmy, before he was called Saul (hilarious, yet endearing Bob Odenkirk).

Thank you Vince Gilligan! Better Call Saul is a wonderful Valentine Day’s present for us diehard Breaking Bad fans who still choke up when we hear the strains of Baby Blue on the radio.

The good news for Breaking Bad fans is that  All the Way is headed to Broadway sometime this winter.

Vince Gilligan in the writer’s room, the genius behind Breaking Bad.

Breaking Bad’s wildly popular success is due to the great chemistry between top notch writers and a great cast. When I interviewed Giancarlo Esposito (Gus) a couple years ago, he told me the actors religiously followed the script. There was little to no improvisation or changing the lines.

So kudos to the Breaking Bad writing staff, Vince Gilligan, Thomas Schnauz, Peter Gould, George Mastras, John Shiban, Sam Catlin, Moira Wally-Beckett, Patty Lin and Gennifer Hutchison, you were the show’s heart and soul.

There are so many good lines from Breaking Bad. Here are a few of my favorites: Read more…
