Parking Tickets Or Mass Murder? Better Call Saul! What To Expect From The 'Breaking Bad' Spin-off

We know that there isn’t a single Breaking Bad fan out there who can’t wait for Better Call Saul to start! The highly anticipated spinoff series will be written by Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan and is planned to be a prequel to the intense action in Breaking Bad.  The show will see shady lawyer Saul before he landed the walk-in-the-park gig as crystal meth mastermind, Walter White’s, lawyer.

But what do we know about Better Call Saul? Other than what we can assume there’s not really a huge amount of information to go on!

Unsurprisingly, Better Call Saul will star Saul Goodman, who will once again be played by Bob Odenkirk and even more excitingly Mike will be resurrected, once again played by Jonathan Banks. Banks has said of the show, “My guess is that Saul will be the lighter side as far as humor goes, and the dark side would be Mike. And I look forward to that.” That does sound how we had imagined the show to pan out. We envisage a load of hardened criminals entering Saul’s office for a few wacky scenes involving him, before Mike goes and actually takes care of business!

We’re sure Banks is looking forward to reprising his character, especially after he recently explained, “I love the mystery of Mike. I love that he can be tender, when the reality was that he was a murderous, drug-dealing bad guy. Unlike some of the other characters, he knew that. He knew his soul was lost.” We wonder whether we’ll meet Mike in a similar mindset to his Breaking Bad character, or whether, as this is set in the past, he won’t yet feel that he is a lost cause.  We'd like to see the abiguous relationship with his family developed at little more.
