I've still got a bad taste in my mouth after 'The Walking Dead' season finale. It just plain stunk. So I was a little nervous when it came to the finale of one of my other new favorites, 'Better Call Saul.' Well I breathed a sigh of relief last night after they did a season finale like you should. Wrap it up, but leave you wanting more.
I've been enjoying 'Better Call Saul' since it started last year. However, there was something missing. I couldn't put my finger on it, but it was just missing an element that 'Breaking Bad' has. It wasn't the acting, the story line was good enough, but the recipe wasn't just right yet. The most recent episode finally found that missing ingredient, and now the show is cooking.
Breaking Bad successfully turned Mr. Chips into Scarface, but did you know that AMC wanted Matthew Broderick or John Cusack for the role of Walter White? Or that Jesse was supposed to die in Season 1? These are just some of the crystal blue persuasions from the thirteenth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which cooks up a new batch for AMC’s Breaking Bad!
I was excited to see last night's episode because I hoped it would give us some insight into who Mike WAS. For such a straight shooting guy, we always wondered what caused him to "Break Bad." In 'Breaking Bad' he was Gus Fring's right hand man, and a sometimes accomplice to Saul's shady business. So what was his story? We found out last night.
A lot of fans were worried that 'Better Call Saul' would taint Breaking Bad's legacy as one of the best shows ever. Critics were worried it would be a cheap sell out prequel. After the premiere Sunday, much of those fears were calmed. Now after the second episode, the verdict is in: We've got another hit series.
If you're like me, you've probably been waiting for the next great TV series to hit the air. Here's hoping Better Call Saul is even half as good as Breaking Bad. From the looks of this next sneak peek that AMC has given us, there looks to be plenty of drama.
