I'm sure that there are going to be other stories to be told. Saul is after all a "lawyer" and represents all sorts of low life and scum. And let's not forget about Mike and what he does and who he represents as well. And even though there has been no mention of it from anyone involved with the show, I would bet top dollar that Skinny Pete and Badger have parts in this too.

In honor of Badger, I give you.........Twaughthammer!!! Let's just hope that Badger read the fine print before signing with Saul, who is representing them.

Well, two updates.  Well, one about BCS, and one about his most famous client.

First, Michael McKean is joining the cast, and I'm hoping he brings some Morris Fletcher to the show b/c I've been missing that.

Meanwhile, Bryan Cranston is producing a new series called "Tightrope."  Now, they haven't said he's starring in it, but I can totally imagine him in this premise.

I really like the idea of Michael McKean joining the cast. I think he is woefully underrated by the public at large. Thanks for the updates. Bryan's show looks like it could be interesting. It's definitely something I would check out once it's up and running.

Well, it looks like Better Call Saul has been pushed back to 2015.  But at least it's already renewed for a second season.  Hopefully the delay means a superior product at the time of release (it would be funny if they did a BTS peek at production with the flavor of Walter White management: "we're making the best stuff, it takes TIME!")

It's a little strange to me, I don't mind saying, to read an article about the lack of new series on a channel that used to just be all about showing old movies.

With the lack of information trickling out since the end of Breaking Bad, I kinda suspected that BCS would get pushed back. I'm okay with the delay if it means a superior product. It's great news that the series has already been given a 2nd second because that takes off a huge amount of pressure for Vince Gilligan to deliver during the first season. The pressure is definitely there and the expectation to match, if not exceed BB is also the elephant in the room.

‘Better Call Saul’ Takes Place Before, During & After ‘Breaking Bad’

Quote
Every fan of Breaking Bad probably has a pretty good understanding of withdrawal, having watched a show that dealt with it to some degree (particularly when Jesse (Aaron Paul) was trying to go cold turkey off meth) before experiencing it themselves when the series ended. Fortunately, the beloved final episode won’t be the last we see of the world of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) – a spinoff is in the works, and it will revolve around fan-favorite character Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk).

More...

Believe in Yourself
Because the rest of us think you're an idiot.

The "Before, During & After" aspect of BCS has been speculated for quite some time. It's just great to finally have some confirmation on this because NOW we can start getting pumped up to see key cast members popping up left and right. Seriously, who doesn't want to see Saul, Jesse and Heisenberg sharing the screen again?

I know, I kept thinking "didn't we know this?"  Seeing some stuff in the 80s will be interesting... they make it sound as if the episodes will be hop, skip, and jumping around in time, but I'll bet it's going to be more informative flashbacks with long-term clients.

Here's my take of how the show will be formatted....or how I would like to see it play out that is. It will start in present day (after the death of Walt) and Saul will be questioned / subpoena as a material witness to take down a larger (unseen in BB) cartel that everyone (Walt, Jesse, Gus, Mike) had connections to. This would lead into back stories that can go anywhere....stories that we've never heard of until Saul gets rolling. With this kind of structure, it would give the 'jumping around' more 'footing' if you will and the stories wouldn't have to be chronological. One of the great things about Walter White is in his ability to straight up lie to everyone to protect his secrets and some of these lies (that we never saw....or heard about on BB) can finally be told. F*ck, I'm soooooooooooo pumped for this series to start!!!!

I really want it to start in present day for other reasons as well. We NEED to see how Junior and Skyler are doing with life after Walt.

"I th-I think they're F*CKING duh-devestated!"
"Flynn!"

Actually, your take is a great idea.  It especially ties in to the flashback style that we saw all the time on BB (seeing the teddy bear in the pool, the police and body bags around the pool, but not knowing why).  My only qualm, personally, is that when you set stuff firmly in the past, there's no threat to life or anything like that.  Even though we know Saul won't die in the middle of the show, we have to feel like he could.  So at least some of the activity should be in the present.  Besides, Saul would bend the truth, you couldn't trust what was happening in his deposition.  So it can't ALL be that.

As soon as I posted about 'Present Day', I immediately went into WHO Saul is and came up with a great idea for the series and keeping in line with the character as well as giving the Present Day some longevity and giving Junior and Skyler a reason to be there beyond just "mourning Walt's passing'. Saul launders money. That's his only objective on the show. Just because Walt is gone, there is still some money that is hidden elsewhere. I don't think all of it was ever destroyed. Who's to say that Skyler didn't save for a rainy day when she was hiding Walt cash in the storage room? So, Saul could play the "good guy" by telling his side of the story to take down the Cartel while also still being the "bad guy" by helping Skyler to launder whatever money is left over, thus keeping a real threat level in play for the Present Day of the show. The cartel would still want whatever money is still out there. We could also see how Junior starts to unravel because of his days secret life. This show has endless possibilities and can go anywhere. This is was I'm excited for BCS.

Sh*t man, some of the flashbacks to Jesse, Walt, Gus and Mike could be about what THEY did in certain situations to evade capture and how they went about business and the information we learn via flashback shows how Saul goes about doing the same thing in Present Day to help out his own situation for himself, Skyler and Junior. The fun would be in seeing Saul f*ck up the very thing he is trying to emulate. God, start this show already!!! I should just send out an open invitation to all the cast members and film this myself before Vince gets wind of my ideas and steals them!!  ;D
