Better Call Saul takes place six years prior to the beginning of Breaking Bad’s plotline. Saul was once the small-time lawyer named Jimmy McGill. Just like Saul, Jimmy was also doing his very best to make ends meet in his life. The show presents Jimmy cutting a deal with HHM because he is unequipped to handle a case on his own. Things don’t pan out well with Howard Hamlin, consequently driving a spike between he and Jimmy.
The show thus far has received very positive reviews and feedback. Rotten Tomatoes gives Better Call Saul 100% positive feedback and IMDb gives it 9.2/10 stars. Fans of Breaking Bad appear not to be disappointed by the new television spin-off. Reviews call Better Call Saul an “addictive drama” full of humor and promise. The humor in Better Call Saul is somewhat more blatant than it is in Breaking Bad, and the pace travels a little faster according to some, but that seems to be all part of the fun. Saul, or rather Jimmy, is clearly the man who came before Saul in Breaking Bad and it is evident that the audience will have the privilege of watching Jimmy evolve into the man everyone already knows and loves. Both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul also ended with cliffhangers on the very first episode, a features which the majority of fans adore.
