    AMC's Better Call Saul - Saul Goodman Breaking Bad Spin-Off

    No firm details yet or anything but the fact that AMC is considering this is kind of cool.

    Saul's one of my favorite characters from Breaking Bad and Bob Odenkirk is pretty much always awesome.

    I'd watch it.

    Of course this is a spoiler that Saul makes it out of the last 8 episodes of BB alive.

    Bob & David were on Marketplace yesterday talking to NPR about their new book.

    The interview didn't get into the spin off when it was on the air, but on the website Odenkirk talks about it.

    Sony has confirmed that it's happening.

    Yes!! This makes me happy, just like every time Goodman shows up on BB.

    I love Odenkirk, and the idea is interesting...I wonder how long they'll be able to drag that out for?

    yeah he's a great character, and pretty much the only one I would want to watch a show devoted to. He could die in BB...this could be a "before Heisenberg" series.

    It is being touted as a prequel exploring his cases before Walt and Jesse came along.

    If that was in the link you provided, I didn't read it. Sorry for the re-hash.

    And I agree with the bogan. Mike would HAVE to be part of it. He was my favorite.

    THR has an interview with Vince Gilligan in which he discusses the Saul spin off.

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...-648425?page=3

    ""There's obviously a danger inherent in doing a spinoff, but I just love the character of Saul Goodman [Bob Odenkirk] so much, and part of me doesn't want to say no to this world," he says of the prequel, acknowledging that he's familiar with the potential pitfalls of a follow-up, having worked on the X-Files spinoff, The Lone Gunmen, which was met with critical derision and a quick ax after 13 episodes back in 2001."
