The teasers for AMC’s “Better Call Saul” just keep coming. Earlier this month the network released a short sneak peek video showing Saul Goodman in action, and now AMC has released a promo video featuring series creators Vince Gilligan (creator of “Breaking Bad”) and Peter Gould. AMC is building up the anticipation for the show’s February 2015 (and much-delayed) premiere, hoping to pull in the “Breaking Bad” audience.
The new video confirms the time setting of the new series – five years before Saul Goodman meets “Breaking Bad’s” Walter White. It also reveals another more fascinating detail: Saul Goodman is not Saul Goodman yet, but a just starting lawyer named Jimmy McGill. Gilligan and Gould pose the question to the audience, “What kind of problem would you have that becoming Saul Goodman solves it?”
The promo ends with another short clip from the show that may just be a backhanded reference to “Breaking Bad.” In it, Saul says, “I don’t go looking for guilty clients. Who needs that aggravation?” Fans know that, eventually, that’s just what the character will do, confronting the king of aggravation – Walter White.
Watch the new promo video below:
The hype is growing as fans learn more and more about the new series. If “Better Call Saul” can bring in a small fraction of the 10 million viewers that watched the “Breaking Bad” finale, it will be a huge success. Fans will have to wait until next year to find out.
