Well. If you’ll pardon a statement of the blindingly obvious... that was rather Breaking Bad-esque. In more ways than one.
Is this a problem? For me, the fact that the second episode of Better Call Saul is just so damn good makes up for the fact that, stylistically, it owes a hell of a lot to its parent series, from the visual choices – the extreme close-up on the vegetables at the beginning, the striking and peculiar camera angles dotted throughout - to the mounting tension of the desert scenes. It’s not altogether surprising; apart from the shared genealogy, the episode is directed by Michelle MacLaren, who also directed 11 episodes of Breaking Bad, including such nail-biters as One Minute and To’hajilee. »
Fans disappointed to hear that Bryan Cranston's Walter White and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman aren't going to show up in Better Call Saul Season 1 will be happy to see that both characters are included in a new tie-in crossover comic book that is currently available on AMC's official website. This new story arrives before Better Call Saul debuts this Sunday, February 8 with Uno.
The action seen in the comic, titled Client Development, takes place during the Breaking Bad Season 2 episode 4 Days Out, where it is continued. Of course, fans already know where the story is headed. Written by Jenn Carol and Gordon Smith and drawn by Steve Ellis, the comic introduces Walter White to Saul, as Mike sets out to get intel on the high school chemistry teacher.
When Better Call Saul premieres this weekend, we'll actually get to see Goodman before his fateful first meeting with Heisenberg. »

When he saw the spec for his role as Walt Jr in Breaking Bad – ‘dark hair, big eyebrows, cerebral palsy’ – the young star knew it was the part for him. Now he’s keen to show the true potential of disabled actors
“Growing up, I didn’t see anyone like me on TV,” says Rj Mitte. On first glance, this seems unlikely. With his camera-ready smile, sharp suit and dark swoop of glossy hair, Mitte appears so made-for-television it is as if he has been cooked up in a lab by his former on-screen father, Breaking Bad’s Walter White. But Roy Frank Mitte III (Rj stands for Roy Jr) isn’t talking about his looks.
The 22-year-old has cerebral palsy, a neurological condition he shares with the character he played in what has been dubbed the “best TV show of all time”, though in a less severe form than his character’s. »

Fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead who live in the Midwest and have a special place in their heart for the katana sword-slashing Michonne, the increasingly capable Carol Peletier, or even the conniving, ruthless Governor should be pleased to know that Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, and David Morrissey have been announced as guests at Walker Stalker Con: Chicago, taking place in February.
