Better Call Saul: The Most Anticipated Show of 2015

In 2008 AMC introduced a show by the name of “Breaking Bad.” Since the beginning of the show, “Breaking Bad” has gained a huge fan base, and at its finale,”Breaking Bad” broke viewership records when 10.3 million watched one last time. “Breaking Bad” is said to have been one of the best shows of all time, and one of the most watched shows of all time. Fans were disappointed when only 5 seasons were made. But now, AMC is releasing a prequel to “Breaking Bad,” a show called “Better Call Saul”.

“Better Call Saul” takes place six years before Breaking Bad occurs, focusing mainly on the dirty lawyer Saul Goodman,  a well known character in “Breaking Bad.” Many characters from “Breaking Bad” are said to make an appearance in this new show including Jesse Pinkman and Mike Ehrmantraut.

Vince Gilligan, producer of both “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” says that fans can expect “Better Call Saul” to have just as much action, scandal and cliff hanging moments as Breaking Bad. Gilligan also said that all questions left unanswered in Breaking Bad will be answered in the new show.

It is estimated that over a million people are going to tune in to the premiere of” Better Call Saul” on February 8th, 2015. Although Vince Gilligan is nervous to mess with the legacy of “Breaking Bad,” he feels confident fans of “Breaking Bad” will enjoy “Better Call Saul” just as much.

“Breaking Bad” fans will have to wait no more for the most anticipated show of 2015.
