Better Call Saul has great cinematography, great DP and very suspenseful but laid back story line. Each scenes gets the attention it deserves. Some bad guys are are really just good guys who made bad decisions. Better Call Saul is another Vince Gilligan masterpiece that not only expands – but is better than the series that spawned it. Once again we get perfectly timed shots that capture the most absurd conflicts in the most mundane and ordinary desert. But this time with more heart than Breaking Bad – expressed by Saul?s passion for Kim, Saul’s deep relationship with his brother, and Mike?s love for his granddaughter and torment over the lost of his son.
In reality drug lawyers are usually the best and brightest attorneys. In the legal world a relationship with organized crime can be very lucrative and such relationships are coveted. The best and brightest tend to be the “go to” mob lawyers. Saul seemed to be a very sophisticated and high level player in Breaking Bad. Saul could have had a much more interesting back story. Him once being a highly paid corporate lawyer from the Ivy League who became a mob lawyer because he was bored, or had Daddy issues, or whatever -would have been much more believable and realistic – especially in the Breaking Bad universe.
