Some of the best writing on television. deeply thought provoking and as many layers as a onion . The story is of jimmy mcgill ( whos not yet saul goodman) and mike ermantrought . They are kind of mirrors to each other. both "good" bad guys walking a thin moral line .
both mike and jimmy face
a theme betrayl and corrupt system ( the police for mike the legal system for jimmy leaves them turning to more criminal activities

by vince gilligan who used to write for the x-files and who also made breaking bad .
it gets way betetr in season 2
i hope the library gets season 2

I loved this series. Saul is a lawyer who originally featured as a regular character in the Breaking Bad Series. This series is a prequel and it is interesting to see how he became a lawyer and his trials and tribulations. I am waiting for series 2.

While watching Breaking Bad Saul became one of my favorite characters. I was so excited to find series and can't wait for season 2

Spin-offs make me wary, especially when it's a beloved character from a beloved series. So I went into "Better Call Saul" with modest expectations because I didn't want to be disappointed. And, well, it's pretty great. Bob Odenkirk took Saul from what could've been a minor, one-dimensional character to a complicated, nuanced, and highly entertaining part of "Breaking Bad." And it's great to see the character back again. Set before "Breaking Bad," Saul is not yet Saul, but a struggling, hustling lawyer named Jimmy McGill. He takes care of his brother, played by Michael McKean, who is part of a prestigious law firm. While lighter in tone than "B.B.," it's hardly a comedy though it does have some comic moments. It also develops the character of Mike and shows how he and Saul first met. The setting is the same sunny, but slightly bleak and seedy New Mexico of "B. B." An unexpected success. Looking forward to the next season.

I really enjoyed this- it's a great prequel to Breaking Bad ( though it doesn't quite have the same quicksilver magic as that series )- the series is unafraid to take it's time, and is an intelligent, funny and well-written character study.
