Better Call Saul–B+
If you’ve been mourning the end of Breaking Bad, Vince Gilligan’s spin off is pretty good. Saul (Bob Odenkirk, Nebraska) has a new identity as the manager of a Cinnabon kiosk in a mall. The series opens in black and white as Saul tends store. At the end of a long day in his dumpy apartment, Saul reminisces about the good old days–puts in a videotape of his old TV commercials. The flashback starts–and black and white fades to color as we learn how small town struggling lawyer James McGill became Saul the lawyer to drug dealers. This series is the same black comedy and has the same pacing as Breaking Bad. You’ll recognize some familiar faces. Definitely worth watching if you liked BB.
