I actually thought this was a joke when I first heard about rumors of a Breaking Bad spin-off a few months ago. I like the character of Saul and Bob Odenkirk is great in the role. But I didn't think it could survive without the cast. Well, I just learned that it's a prequel and takes place entirely before the events of Breaking Bad. This angle could work and it actually opens up the door for past minor characters and a couple of big characters that met their demise to make an appearance or two. I'm now on board with this 100%.

Any bets on how long it's gonna take the show before they get desperate and get Bryan Cranston to do a cameo?  Come on, smoking a cigarette? "Those things will give you cancer." "Yeah, yeah."

Well, neither Walt or Jesse knows who Saul is on a personal level (except his cheesy commercials on TV) given that this takes place before the events of Breaking Bad. It would have to be some sort of random run in like Walt driving down the road....late for class (since he would be a teacher during this time) and maybe Saul is crossing the street in front of him or something causing Walt to swerve, nearly getting into a wreck and he continues driving onward, giving Walt the chance to stick his hand out the window and  flip him off or something. I don't think they could have any kind of 'conversation" that either would conceivably be able to recall during their time together on Breaking Bad.

I'm just counting the days that they can bring back Mike and Gus in some sort of cameo. Well, Mike could actually have a big role on the show with Gus popping in, giving a scary ass look and then disappearing into the shadows. I miss both those characters for sure.

I was doing SO WELL, I didn't mind that I hadn't started the series yet, then I watched "Smashed" with Aaron Paul and he was good in it and my mind started putting together what it thought BB was (and that sh*t was DARK).  Now I'm just WAITING for the final season to come to Netflix so I can watch the darn thing.

Without giving anything away (no spoilers), the second half of Season 5 has been f*cking goooooooooood. And they have a lot to live up to, especially the previous season. I haven't been let down one bit. I've really gone out of my way to savor these final episodes, watching only 1 episode a week, even though I have multiple episodes waiting for me. I may save the final 3 I have to watch in one day, sort of a mini marathon.

It does seem like it could be the Lionel Hutz series we never got.

Me:  I bet Walter shows up on "Better Call Saul."
Chip:  Very unlikely.
Vince Gilligan:  Actually...

Neumatic: I told you, you dumbass!

Me: That you did sir. That you did.

Like I said in a previous post, if they do a cameo or even something bigger than a cameo, it's gonna have to removed from Saul because they never meet until the events within Breaking Bad, otherwise fans will rip the show apart with regards to continuity. I'm 100% down for everyone on the show getting a cameo and more. I'm not ready to let go of this show. I'm never gonna be able to let go.

I don't want to rub it in or anything but for all the times that I was right, that was the first time anyone ever told me so.

I don't think that the cast and crew can let go of the old show either... so that's gonna result in some interesting stuff.  You know, it doesn't have to be a PURE prequel, it can go parallel to the events and then push right past them.

But Vince has already gone on record saying it's a prequel. But hey, he can do whatever he wants and retract that statement and do as you pointed out. Parallel Universes work for a reason and I wouldn't object to that at all. I and everyone else would probably want the second option so that our favorite characters can make more than just mere "cameos". Having it done this way would open up the canvas big time. We can have Saul's story being told in conjunction to what is happening with Walt and Jesse.

Exactly.

I was thinking it could START as a prequel, but maybe only a year to a couple months BEFORE BB starts, fill in some holes, then jump to the present.  Just because it starts in the past doesn't mean the whole thing has to take place in the past.  Expand your mind, dude.
