AMC Announce Breaking Bad Spin-off

With AMC's Breaking Bad coming to an end there's been a lot of talk about a possible spin-off to the hit series.

AMC have now announced they will be moving ahead with a prequel series revolving around criminal lawyer Saul Goodman. Currently titled 'Better Call Saul', the series will see Bob Odenkirk return as the character before he met Walter White.

The series is expected to get a full season order soon.

Err... could be good.

I like the character but not sure about a series revolving around him. Hopefully they go with a story arc instead of a shitty case of the week kind of thing.

Yeah I can imagine that getting old pretty damn fast. I mean, he is a great character but not sure he'd work as a leading role.

Agreed with the above. Saul is an excellent character in Breaking Bad as comic relief, but as the main character of his own show could be a little too much.

The crooked lawyers are part of just about every crime related drama, never seen one about the lawyers themselves, should be interesting.

An hour long show about a lawyer, his secretary and a guy called Mike? Trying to steal USA's coveted Suits audience, perhaps?

I reckon it will last a season, maybe two depending on writing. If it's done poorly or perceived as a cash-grab, I could see it getting cancelled mid-season...
