With the holiday release of the “Breaking Bad” Blu-Ray set, complete with its own plastic drum, fans of the AMC blockbuster have been able to once again sing the praises of their favorite show. Parts of my Thanksgiving dinner actually involved a discussion of the series’ effect on cancer patients. People will look for any reason to bring up the show. Of course the one thing super fans don’t want to discuss is now there won’t be anymore “holy sh%t” moments on Sundays (until “Game of Thrones” returns that is).
The one thing though that keeps all “Breaking Bad” fans hope alive is the knowledge that “Better Call Saul” is actually happening. Another AMC series based in the world of BB seems like a no brainer. Now according to a Yahoo TV interview with BB writer Peter Gould, we can expect to see all side of Saul in the new show. Here’s some choice parts from Gould, the writer credited with the creation of the Saul character.
On how a devious character like Saul turned into a fan favorite.
…part of the paradox of Saul Goodman and one of the things that made him fun, even right back in that first episode. He looks like a clown. Frankly, I’ve been hanging around in courtrooms lately, and it’s not as broad as I thought originally. He dresses in a ridiculous way, he’s got billboards, he’s got ridiculous ads, but he is a shrewd customer. If you listen, most of his advice to Walt over the years in the show was really good advice. If Walt had listened to Saul a little bit more, I think the show would have gone very differently and probably would not have been as exciting.
The other big news in the interview is that we may end up seeing Saul ply his trade in the courtroom. Head over to Yahoo for the complete interview with Gould, and stay tuned to Hidden Remote as we keep you abreast of all Saul Goodman news leading up to the show’s launch.
