Saul's Mailbag
October 17, 2013  | By Eric Gould
 
Our Breaking Bad hangover continues, with one bloodshot eye following news on Better Cal Saul, the spinoff dedicated to the prequel back story of Bob Odenkirk's crook lawyer, Saul Goodman. Internet news spiced things up a little this week, with reports that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul might appear in cameos for the new series. While spinoffs are often bald-faced money-grabs artistically doomed from the start, here, with Bad producer Peter Gould as showrunner and Vince Gilligan consulting, we're believers. Meanwhile, there has been a website set up for the counselor, with graphics as cheesy as his strip mall offices. There are lots of extras – full-length versions of commercials that were excerpted into the original AMC series, testimonials from clients like Badger and Wendy, and this close-up moment with Saul, reading letters from viewers. –Eric Gould
