    Just saw AMC announce a spinoff of Breaking Bad for Saul. Just what the doctor ordered.

    AMC and Sony Pictures Television confirmed today that they have reached a licensing agreement for a spinoff of Vince Gilligan’s landmark AMC/SPT series Breaking Bad. As conceived, the new series is based on the show’s popular Saul Goodman character with the working title Better Call Saul. Plans call for Saul to be a one-hour prequel that will focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer.

    I would rather it be a continuation as obviously with a prequel you can only go so far.

    A continuation would imply he lives, I've rather be held in suspense.

    A continuation may not be possible...

    Curious. I thought they would go with the 1/2-hour sitcom prequel It's Jesse, Bitch!

    Not me. I thought they would go with the 1/2-hour sitcom prequel featuring Walt Jr. called What's For Breakfast?. :D

    I think they considered the neo-reality show Badger and Skinny Pete, but the producers killed it when, in 20 hours of footage for the pilot, the pair never leave Jesse's living room. Just 20 hours of bong-inspired Star Trek rants. Firefly zealots are already organizing a protest to get it on the air, for the first time, on rumor that they briefly mentioned Joss Whedon. They would be fine if it continued on in comic book form.

    I like the idea of a prequel better. Saul has transformed since he met Walt. He used to feel invincible and that led to his funnier moments. If this is going to be a comedy, he can't really be weighed down by his Heisenberg experiences.

    I hope he is reunited with his old "Mr. Show" cohort, David Cross, as the bumbling prosecutor who can't get one over on Saul.

    Ideal Kevin "2-shot" Smith project.

    Lame. Saul is cool and a good character but I can only handle him on screen in doses. I think a whole hour of Saul will get really old really fast.

    I respect your kung fu, Shane. That was a righteous take. Vince Gilligan hasn't seemed to learn an important lesson.
