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.
