Better Call Saul will air on AMC, though the network almost lost the rights to the show in a battle with Netflix and FX, among others. Meanwhile, CBS is moving forward with 13 episodes of the police drama Battle Creek, based on a previously rejected script Gilligan wrote a decade ago; that series will be written, produced, and overseen by House creator David Shore.
I am down for anything Gilligan writes based on something to do with BB. Lets just hope its good, the almost perfection of BB is going to be something we may never seen beaten. This is one of those time I hope the phrase never say never lives true.
As much as I loved the Saul character on BB, I don't see the need for this spin-off. Why? That show is over. Our involvement with those people is over. If they make it a comedy, then it doesn't fit with the universe where the character originated. If it's a drama, then it doesn't work either because it can never come close to its antecedent to which it will constantly be compared. Like kitty above, I can't just muster any enthusiasm for this project.
C'mon AMC. Do something worthwhile instead. Bring back 'Rubicon'! (I can dream can't I?)
Well, I'm going to check it out .. and I suspect many BB fans are going to do the same .. I agree that lightning is very unlikely to strike twice, but maybe there will be at least some static electricity ..
I just had a thought, none of you better say its my first one though. During the filming of the season in the meth lab Gus had built, they had pink filters on their masks. I wonder if this was filmed during October and they were paying tribute to Breast Cancer Awareness.
