Thanks to the success of AMC’s Breaking Bad there is a tremendously high bar in place for the spin-off Better Call Saul. Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman was one of the best characters in the BB universe, but there’s still a chance that the show could end up being more Joey than Fraiser. There is a reason HBO never went ahead with a Paulie Walnuts spin-off. It’s hard to capture the magic of the original show while at the same time creating new stories and characters. The good news is that everything we’ve heard about Better Call Saul, from the casting of comedy veteran Michael McKean as Saul’s brother, to the brief screenshots has been promising.
The new ten second teaser from the show continues the positive trend as we head toward the February 2015 premiere of Better Call Saul. In the clip Saul explains the importance of lawyers to a prospective client. As usual he explains the truth behind the legal profession in a way that only he can. Check out the clip below.
What do you think about Better Call Saul? Will the show live up to the giant expectations viewers have placed on it?
