Better Call Saul
Premieres Sunday, Feb. 8, 9 pm, AMC
Rarely does a program as lauded as Breaking Bad receive the spin-off treatment, and even rarer is a spin-off renewed for a second season before the first has even aired. Enter Better Call Saul, an hour-long drama focused on the life of lovable scumbag lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) in the years before his eventual pairing with teacher-turned-drug lord Walter White. Co-created by Breaking Bad mastermind Vince Gilligan, the show's two-night premiere (regular timeslot is Mondays at 9 pm) is a can't-miss television event that'll leave you laughing and perplexed about what will happen next.
