    Idea for “Better Call Saul” gets green light so AMC announces Breaking Bad spinoff centered around Saul Goodman’s (Bob Odenkirk) life beofre he met Walt and Jesse. Any first thoughts?

    I’m hoping the show has a similar tone as a dramedy like “Orange is the New Black” or as a bleak comedy like “Louie.” Both of those stike the perfect balance of outrageous humor and deeply emotional scenes. Not that I expect “Better Call Saul” to be that emotional of a show. I definitely hope it’s serialized like BrBa and not case-of-the-week.

    This is a really weird think to greenlight. I mean, it’s not like Saul was ever a popular, or talked about character on Breaking Bad. Bob Odenkirk never came up in Emmy discussions, either. So it is really weird that they would greenlight this. I have to say, I don’t expect this to last more than 2 seasons at the most. And, unless it’s REALLY good, I don’t expect any award nominations either.

    I remember a couple of years ago when I was considering what Odenkirk’s best submission was.  I ended up clocking it and he only had six minutes.

    I hope it premieres next summer or something, I don’t have time to watch even more tv shows than I already do, specially since I’m back to college.

    It needs to be a comedy and i hope creators agree. I also hope that Mike can be involved since he was connected with him before Walt and Jesse.

    Vince Gilligan says that the show will be three quarters comedy and a quarter drama, so is Bob Odenkirk the early frontrunner for comedy lead actor 2015?

    No. Vince Gilligan scrapped those plans and the show is now going to be a one hour drama.

    It’ll still be an hour, but it’s more comedy than drama:

    If Vince Gilligan dedicates himself as he did with BrBa, oh boy, I’m so in and never getting out.

    Vince Gilligan is going to be a busy man next year with this and his new CBS show.

    Well, if Vince is dedicated to project both Bob and show are players for awards. Still, it is to early to talk about that. Can you name some characters getting their show after being guest/supporing in other one. After apearing in Happy Days as Mork, Robin Williams got his first show “Mork and Mindy, also Kelsey Grammer first appeared as fraiser in “Cheers” and then got his own show “Frasier”.

    Thanks, ThemeParks4Life, that is exactly what I was referencing.  The show will be three parts comedy and one drama.

    Pretty much every spinoff character that’s ever existed.

    Here’s some examples:

    George Jefferson (Sherman Hemsley) — All in the Family –> The Jeffersons
    Maude (Bea Arthur) — All in the Family –> Maude
    Angel (David Boreanaz) — Buffy the Vampire Slayer –> Angel
