Want to keep a fan-favorite character going after the show on which he appeared comes to a close?

On Wednesday, AMC and Sony Pictures Television — the parties behind Breaking Bad — reached an agreement to create a BB prequel centering on Walter White’s shady lawyer Saul Goodman.
The project, which has been rumored for months, will bypass the traditional pilot process and go straight to series.

The network announced that the one-hour spin-off ”will focus on the evolution” of the morally-challenged counselor before he became Heisenberg’s defender.
How soon before? That’s a good question. Bob Odenkirk plays Saul in Bad, which will have its series finale on Sept. 29; AMC has not said whether the actor will inhabit the role in the prequel, which has the possibility of depicting Goodman at a much younger age.

It looks like they also need a spinoff romantic comedy involving Meth Damon and Lydia.

Seems like this may be hit or miss.

It's undoubtedly going to be forever compared to Breaking Bad. Going to be impossible to live up to those expectations. I'll watch though.

I'm hoping and guessing it'll have nothing to do with the storyline of Breaking Bad and will be some sort of tongue in cheek comedy with a different story every week. I could get down with that.

If they keep a lot of the Breaking Bad writers it"ll be okay. I'm assuming this will take place after BB story wise?

or within the bb timeline, and just every 5th or 6th episode have a 5 second cameo of walter or jesse leaving the office before the new client came in, maybe just showing their back as they're walking out. lol

would totally watch it, even if it sucked because odenkirk is a genius. maybe he could even bring david cross in as one of his paid operatives, like the angel to his jim rockford. could be funny as shit.

also, will probably never happen.

what do i know. lol

also, if they lose odenkirk, will NOT watch.

Yeah and Steve's article is now dimebag. It's been confirmed that Odenkirk is playing Saul. Google works wonders.
